Hi all, just to say the State Library of Queensland in Australia has just launched a free online comic maker which I've blogged about here at MCPOP - http://mcpopmb.ning.com/profiles/blogs/fun-palaces-free-online-comi...

It's part of a bigger festival of arts and sciences which includes simultaneous events running in public libraries across London - http://matthewfinch.me/2015/09/11/all-your-base-are-belong-to-us-la...

Well worth checking out.
