While I'm not the type that judges software after only a few minutes using it, ComiPo is simple enough that you can try every features it has to offer in that limited time for a quick review. A lot of people already gives accurate opinions about Comipo, so I'll keep mine short

This software is good for quick comic-making, be it for Facebook, community forum or your blog/website that just needs a bit more "picture talk" - it's perfect to transform daily joke or something you came up on-the-fly to a few manga panels so everyone can enjoy it without having to read through a wall of text. Literally EVERYTHING in Comipo is drag 'n drop and most of the time you are just moving things around, rotate them to fit together, throw in a few speech bubbles and maybe some expression/comic effect - simple as that.

Now for the bad thing - lack of customization is obvious. Even though you are given 3D models with a bunch of preset pose, you are unable to modify them further and just gotta use whatever the devs gave you. I know this is to simplify editing process, but it would be nicer to have an Advanced option so you can custom-pose 3D models (Maybe also within some limitation set by devs to make thing more logical). On the same subject, texture editing is also very limited - even a simple color change to character clothing is not possible at all, so if you really like a clothing set but its color is not your taste, you have no choice but to post-edit it after exporting image from Comipo. Finally, I don't understand why there's no skin color option - you can't make black/yellow skinned characters within Comipo, which is quite stupid. Just a minor complain though, but you can only add 32 pages per CPD file, so good luck managing your comic if you have tons of pages.

While Comipo is mod-friendly to a degree and there are some very nice-made stuff out there, it's still not enough for you to make anything better than 4-koma manga - likewise, new updates just seem to add more useless stuff rather than what we truly need (though, maybe it's too hard for the devs to come up with the moment so we can only wait). The DLCs didn't help much either, as they don't offer much more than a few preset outfit and objects/backgrounds to come with. What I think is the worst is that character pose are not getting updated fast enough (not even DLCs), forcing you to just play around with the old one for a LONG time (And how many do we have, like 200+ which half are only usable on certain angel?). At least the devs are still being active on Steam forum, but whether or not our idea/suggestion can make it to Comipo is up to them. Me personally, I'd agree that a basic puppet tool would be MUCH nicer than those preset pose, and the ability to change skin/clothing colors is pretty much a must if Compio wanna get more customers.

Overall I'd give this software 8/10 - it suits well for me in assisting comic work, and I feel like I can play around with it for story-telling when I'm not up to making an entire Photoshop CS page. Although it might not worth the full price in some way, but feel free to pick it up on a sale.

#2.40 UPDATE: After a few patches bringing Comipo closer to its JP version, the tool is getting a lot more features, but still lack a few critical one to make it more functional. Only one new DLC added since I wrote this review and that's a shame because not only the devs won't give us customize freedom, they also don't care much on offering us paid/free content. This is what I seriously hate about JP/KR software/games, but well, that's how the world works.

#2.50 UPDATE: Okay, things are getting a little better now; at least our feedback are still being appreciated. I like the "sorting" menu that allows you to separate all / preset / custom models so you don't have to scroll through a long list to find something to attach to your character, but exactly how the "color" menu works is still a mysterious to me. Will update the review once I figure that out.

#KNOWN ISSUE: I've been running into this strange issue recently - don't know if it's because I installed too many custom contents that my x86 system can't handle or just because my VGA card is getting old (It's a GT 620 with only 1 GB memory). When exporting image, there is a chance that the process will fail and you will receive an error messenger - during that time, your VGA driver STOPS working and sometimes it can recover (so you can see the messenger) sometimes it cannot, forcing a hard reset. Lately I tried to close everything in the background and just use Comipo, and hasn't seen this error, so maybe it's just me. If you guys plan to use Comipo on not-so-powerful rig, especially x86 like me, be warned that Comipo may demand significant resource to run flawlessly (and with custom contents too).

Great buy, especially when it's on sale!

I've never used anything like this before, but it's been lots of fun so far. Easy to get into and it looks like there're a lot of community additions as well.

If you like watching anime/reading manga, this is a nice way to get a hands on feel for the stuff we enjoy so much.

I wish I had read the forum for this program first, teaches me. This guy summarize what I would like to say so I just quote it here instead of adding curses every second phrase.

Edit: Extensive downloadable content is at time being.... not existing. There is a few downloadable crap items on their webpage... but as a steam subscriber, you dont have access to them, so, their not available atall.

Quote from forum (Poster: Not a bear)
Do NOT buy this program! Massive ripoff and extremely limited!
Let me be straight with you, I bought this program from the official site shortly after it came out years ago for $50. It was a gigantic waste of money.

Here's the deal. First off, the program is insanely limited. You are given virtually no freedom whatsoever to design or pose your characters. By default the ONLY outfits are school uniforms in only a couple colors and identical styles. There's maybe less than 10 different hair styles per gender and only a handful of hair and eye colors. The poses for your characters are fixed and you cannot freely move them at all, and there's only a few dozen poses to work with.

There's also a problem with layering. For example, if you wanted two characters to hug each other... well, you can't, because every character is on it's own layer. You cannot pose two characters "together" and have them wrap their arms around each other or something. There's also no real guideline for perspective either so it's really hard to measure characters' positions if they're not at roughly the same distance in the background.

The backgrounds, comic effects and the like are all acceptable. Very little to complain about there. Aside from the fact that there's quite a few backgrounds that simply do not match with the character designs as they're basically just photos that have been run through photoshop filters to look more animated.

But there's more problems. For example the text input has no option to center your text, so all of your text must be manually centered. The program is also extremely slow and takes a long time to load pages and export things even if you have no custom assets on the page. Speaking of custom assets, there's a 3D model importing feature, but it only allows models done in a very specific format and in my experience, half the time they don't import properly and either come out incomplete or outright invisible.

But possibly the worst part of the entire program is the DLC and lack of updates. Here's an interesting fact - the Japanese version came out well over a year before the English version did, and when the English version did come out, it launched with LESS CONTENT than the day 1 Japanese version did. Their excuse was that the English version was cheaper, so they didn't want the Japanese people to just download the English version. They felt it was more appropriate to give the foreigners an outdated product. It was SEVERAL MONTHS with absolutely NO updates to the program before we even got what was available AT LAUNCH for the Japanese version. Of course, by then, the Japanese version was more than a year and a half ahead of the English version in updates and features. I would not doubt that this has continued to be the case.

But it gets worse. The Japanese version had several extra packs of free props to insert into your scenes released prior to the English launch. Several of these did make it into the English release for free, however they actually had the nerve to charge foreigners extra for some of them. When they first launched this pack, it was $15, which again, cost nothing to the Japanese users.

Then there's all the other DLC. If you want to make ANYTHING besides a generic school life series in precisely one single outfit, then they expect you to shell out extra money for crap that should have been in the program from the beginning for free. Well, then again, you can't make anything beyond generic school life series. You've got packs of more school uniforms, some casual clothes, some swimsuits, and stuff like that. And they expect you to pay extra for all of it. It's a ripoff, plain and simple, and even worse is that you get very little for the outrageous prices of the packs. A couple new outfits and a couple colors per pack. I don't know how much they run for these days, but they were about $15-$20 when they came out. For each one. And there was like 5 or 6 of them. On top of the $50 program.

In summary, DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM. It's too limited to be of any use, you will be mocked for using it and no one will take any of your comics seriously, and it's just plain a complete ripoff and not worth the money at all. Avoid at all costs.
