I do recommend this software because it is a gold mine of possibilities and it really helped me for things like perspective and poses for character. BUT, you must be able to use at least another software like Photoshop or Gimp to complete this one. As some people said : it is limited even with all of their features and DLC for the choice of clothes, type of characters and objects, but you can import a lot of thing such as 2D images, 3D objects and with an image editor on the side, it is the most useful program I used for manga creation. So if you are ready to work and know a thing or two about image edition, this is a wonderful software for you.

This software allowed you to create your own Manga with pre-made Characters,Items and backgrounds
Which make this software easy to understand without any basic skills of drawing.
I liked to draw manga and characters in paper but drawing in my laptop seems impossible since
I don't have mouse-pen or even good software to draw on.
Comipo fix that desired and now I can created my own story from paper to software (with a limited sources material ofcourse )

7/10 - Make a Drama story out of Funny material XD

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.

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 - no 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.

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.

Despite what some negative reviews have said, it actually is possible to have two characters overlap each other, it just takes a bit of figuring out: specifically, you have to use the barriers of the boxes to "cut off" the body part you want to appear over the other character, then use copy and paste and move the character to the exact other side of the box so that only the arm, leg, head whatever is visible, and line it up with the rest of the body. That's the real tricky part: lining up the figures so that (for example) an arm is where it should be requires so much precision that it's basically trial and error. Extremely difficult, but (theoretically) possible.

Having said that, I would highly recommend ONLY buying this program on SALE. I managed to get the program and three DLC for roughly 20 dollars total, and I still feel like I overpaid. But I suppose that's all the more reason to make the most of it.
