    if u are using mac, u can go to apple.com to download the shareware called Comic Life.

    if u are a PC user like me... then, we're screwed. have to do it the old fashion way of layers in Photoshop... like u, i've been trying to find the shareware version of the apple software. no luck...

    Oh..if you're looking for the speech bubbles.. you can get it from Photoshop's Custom Shapes. You can do all these effects in Photoshop too.. if there's no such Comic Software like PLASQ for PC users. It maybe a little slower, but its very much possible with Photoshop to achieve that too.

    Actually PS also can, it just that maybe you create a workspace, with all the different speech bubbles and save it, then cut and paste it over to the comic when you need to use. MS Word has a couple of those speech bubbles too. Comic Life just makes things easier because of all the templates...and of course the other wonderful features because it is a dedicated comic editor.

    Maybe can try THIS.
