Comic-O-Matic, by Margo Burns, with Nina Paley's Face-O-Matic

Step 1: Random characters are selected to start. Choose your own if you want different ones - the new ones will show up after you click "Make this Comic Strip".
4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4 4
7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7 7
Step 2: Optional: You can set a scene per panel, "Washington, D.C.", "Later that day..." etc. HOWEVER, you will lose a line of space for dialog if you do so.
Step 3: Write your own dialog. You can use the faces below to inspire you! Want it to be a thought? Change the radio button below from "Talk" to "Thought"! Because cartoon characters don't always speak in words, if you put any of the following words in square brackets - like this: [heart] - you will see some interesting results: cloud, storm, sweat, steam, heart, bubbles, lightbulb, and curse.

Step 4: Leave color/eyes/mouth checked if you want to keep them. Uncheck any you don't like, and a new random one will be generated when you click "Make this Comic Strip" (Want more control over the faces? Use the main interface)
