It’s easy to make your own comics, even without drawing skills. ComicBook! ($1.99, universal) lets your kids take a bunch of photos, then turn those into superheroic comic pages. The app is universal, so this can also be done with an iPhone or iPod touch, but the end results are certainly more impressive on the iPad’s larger display.
Another Tuesday without new Apple products, so you’ll have to settle for today’s Camera RAW Compatibility Update while you examine supposed iPhone 5 parts that have leaked onto the internet, all while downloading a couple of updates to our favorite iOS apps.

Let’s face it: We’re all looking for ways to spice up mundane photos, otherwise apps such as Instagram wouldn’t have explosive growth. If your interests lean more toward comic books, a new universal app has just hit the store that could very well swoop in and save the day for your tired old snapshots.
