Using Comic Strips as part of your design

Have you seen learning materials where there are commonly known comic strips like Dilbert, Peanuts included in it? If not paid properly, one wonders the amount of potential copyright issues these ‘internal’ classes have. One solution is to instead create comic strips from scratch that are copyright-free. Why borrow when you could build one that is specifically your own?

One of my lead instructional designer and developer, Steve, brought to my attention the Bit Strips Comics site. It’s easy to use. Avatars, background scenes, accessories, movements, are dragged from a catalogue of choices and dropped to a user’s flash-based comic strip panel of choice. The above sample was built in 15 minutes. It’s easy, simple, and effective. If you’ve created your own bit strips comics, post your link here.
