Comic Life leaps onto the iPad

Plasq on Tuesday released Comic Life for iPad, a new incarnation of its software for turning your digital photos into comics.

Despite seeming like an obvious fit for the touchscreen, Comic Life for iPad marks the software’s first foray into iOS (the existing Mac and Windows have been around for a while). The new iPad app includes ten “fun and quirky” templates and 67 fonts. The app offers various image filters to make your photographs look more comic-ish, but the real fun comes from assembling together speech balloons, thought bubbles, captions, panels, and text to make your comic masterpiece.

Comic Life costs $8 and requires iOS 4.3 or later.
