Comic Chat for the Comic Artist in All of Us

Quick peek at the goings on in Comic Chat

Were you an artist for your school newspaper? Were you the one the teacher caught doodling all over your math notes? Did the arrival of the Sunday color funnies set your heart aflutter? If this is you, then Microsoft Comic Chat is going to be one fun frolic!

What happens in Comic Chat? You play a character in a comic strip. You are logged in to Comic Chat at the same time as others, who are playing in their characters. Everything you do as your character (chat, express an emotion, make a thought) is expressed in a panel within an ongoing comic story board. The more chat, the more panels that are generated by Comic Chat. Since it is all very familiar and looks appealing, Comic Chat is like a form of improvised theater anyone can participate in.

When you are done chatting, you can scroll back and review all the zany conversations you had. You can even print out the comic strip and stick it on your refrigerator or pin it up in your cubicle (Dilbert, watch out!).
