Adobe Illustrator is an image editing application that allows you to create all kinds of documents, including posters, flyers, banners, postcards, magazine covers, comics and more. If you want to create a comic image you can insert pictures or other graphics. You can also use the Drawing toolbar to create you own images and text balloons to add to your characters. The balloons, or callouts, are easiest to make when you create your text first.
