Strips 2
28th June 2007  
While I was playing Ultima Online a lot, I decided to do a silly Ultima based comic. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but it took ages to cut out and manage each of the panels of a comic, in order to make the pages look good.
As I always say, "A simple idea can always be made easier if you use Blitz to do all the boring work for you." It's a long saying, but it fits.

Hyper Llama Man lasted for 6 pages.. Not a long time, but at least I managed to pull myself away from Ultima!
The <a href="">first page</a> of the comic was done entirely in PaintShop Pro. It's kind of ugly. The <a href="">next one</a> was done using a quickly made comic strip editor. That was Strips. It worked, but it was specifically designed to create boxy plain-text Hyper Llama Man pages.
Pages <a href="">3</a>,<a href="">4</a>,<a href="">5 </a>and <a href="">6</a> were all done using Strips 2.

Strips 2 was a much more advanced editor, allowing for sliced panels, bubble speech and a variety of fonts.

It's more or less in a fully working state, but if you do decide to use it, keep saving often, because it'll probably crash, or do something stupid!
