5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, very useful February 15, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Manga Studio Debut 4 is the closest thing to a perfect sketchbook replacement on the market. A 70 dollar bamboo pen tablet and a 50 dollar Manga Studio Debut 4 program, and you have enough(assuming you have a sufficient computer) to stop buying sketchbooks for as long as you want to.

Manga Studio Debut 4 is fast enough at pencil, pen, and paintbrush/airbrush(airbrush is hidden in the paintbrush options) tools. This makes it perfectly reasonable to replace a sketchbook. Add the storybook files of 32 pages, with the option of seeing your pages to your left while working on your picture to the right and you've got a tight sketchbook.

Does it do panels? yes. Custom panels? yes. Tones? yes. Custom Tones? yes. Layers? yes. Ruler layers, Grid Layer, Selection Layer? yes. Layer Opacity? yes. Layer color? yes. Advanced curve settings for pen/pencil tools? yes. Does the brush have materials that are fun to play with in B&W and color? yes. Speed lines? yes. Does it have print settings? yes, a host of them. Could you make your own comic? As easy as a comic is to make. Can the program draw for you? Actually it kind of can... you can make selections, then paste tones inside the selections, and you can subtract selections from within a selection and add selections outside of the selection... and have the program tone or material all your selections. First... this is where it's a bit slow... and two, that's kind of overusing the feature.

Weak tool points of the tools present.
Text - for whatever reason... text rotation seems only present in the EX version. text rotation?? oh, come on... you'll probably work a page at 90 degrees for comfort. Just sketch your own text, or work a page vertically. Balloons? yes. Sizing? yes. Multiple language input?

2.0 out of 5 stars Consider Carefully: Do you want a toy or a powerful tool? September 27, 2009
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
If you want a toy, then get this version, but if you'd like a really great tool for drawing manga, then get the EX version. The EX version may be much more expensive, but if you're a serious artist, then you might as well throw away your money if you're going to buy this version. To give you an example of how many features that this version is missing: it doesn't have vectoring, an eyedropper tool, or even a gradiation tool! Check the website's manual for a list of features it doesn't have.

Skip this version, buy the EX version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vast improvement March 14, 2010

I'm a professional comic artist and this product has been a godsend. The pre-made panels, word bubbles, and pens are fantastic. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars So cool, so easy, so awesome! January 12, 2011
By Kay
Platform for Display:PC/Mac
Wow, I got this program not two days ago and I'm addicted to using it. I didn't buy it from amazon, but it is the same product, so I figured I'd write a review anyway. Well, I'm not familiar with using programs like these. However this is SUPER easy to figure out, especially with the beginner's assistant. Everything is layed out in plain sight in an organized manner, and it's simple to make your ideas come to life. I've already started a comic of my own. And if you're not exactly interested in getting something to help you make your own manga, it's a super great tool to digitally color your artwork using the color palatte, different brushes it offers, and layers. All the materials you need are there, and with the dynamic help setting on, you can scroll over buttons and it will tell you what they are and what they do. Plus, youtube has lots of helpful tutorials. This is an awesome product, and well worth your money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comic makers dream come true January 31, 2010
Platform for Display:PC/Mac|Verified Purchase
To take from the "For Dummies" book (FYI: I recommend you get, or at least read it if you're new to art programs),

"There are a lot of programs for making art, but few for actually making comics."

Manga Studio fills that void and does a great job doing it. I'm not well practiced with it yet, but I like what I've been pulling together in the time I've worked with it. This is an ideal choice for would be comic makers.
