Is It Any Good?

Comic Master is easy to use. In fact, it's almost too simple. Kids can't customize comics with uploaded photos, and the limited amount of characters and other visual elements may not maintain their interest for long. Users can't easily flip through multiple pages to review their work. They also can't share their creations with others on the site, which makes it a safer experience -- but it also makes getting any feedback difficult. The design is simple, and graphics are colorful and charming, in classic comic style. Comic characters also are pretty traditional; you choose from two muscle-bound guys or two busty female heroes (although it's nice to see female representation at all!). Kids can print out pages to show them to family and friends, but the site would be a stronger resource if it involved a secure, straightforward way to share graphic novels.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
