Comic Master “create graphic novels”
Comic Master is a free web application that allows you to easily create comics (graphic novels) online.

You simply scroll through the options, choose the one you want to use and simply drop it onto the comic page. It really is that easy.
Teachers could focus on literacy in the classroom discussing how to develop a good plot, introducing characters or discussing grammar points such as the use of onomatopoeia words like “crack” and “pow.” Once students have come up with their own written text, you could allow them to work on their comics online at home. Once they learn the basics, Comic Master can really can get addictive, especially if students know their work will be presented to the class.
