Comic strips are sequences of drawings in interrelated panels that tell a story. A comic strip page usually features a couple of panels with images, narrated with text in balloons of captions. In this article, I have gathered 100 free comic strip templates from 16 different sources from around the web. 

These free resources will help designers, artists, teachers, and students craft their amazing visual stories faster. 

“I believe comic books and superheroes affect our culture so much because they serve to remind us of this powerful and deeply ingrained fact: we matter.”
