For a long time, I've been looking for tools to create comic strips, mainly because I find that GIMP is not exactly suited for the job even though it's an excellent image manipulation tool. Even though I couldn't find a single Linux-based comics creation program (or even a decent, free Windows-based program), I did come across an interesting website when I searched for one: Stripgenerator.com. I personally wouldn't use it, but for those who have no skill in drawing but have a lot of creative ideas for cartoons, this seems to be a good idea.
Pre-built graphics aren't really my thing and in my opinion you miss the creative satisfaction of drawing your own characters, but at least these tools will keep you playing with your ideas for a while. I did look at some of the strips on display there and while most of them aren't too clever, there are a few which I enjoyed. Even so there is an element of repetitiveness in them, mainly because of the shared graphical elements.
