Layemout is the attempt at creating an intuitive web application to create comic books and strips using HTML5, CSS3 and localStorage().

(Eventual) Features

  • Resizable panels give you an easy way to storyboard and plan out layouts
  • Randomize one of Wally Wood's 22 panels that always work
  • Upload an image from your computer to place inside of the panel
  • Delete, duplicate panels
  • Cross-platform compatible (So you can use on iPad, etc).
  • Publish your completed comic to a URL
  • Export to image, PDF

User Flow

  • Choose a layout for your project
  • Pick a basic template or browse the template gallery
  • Upload drawings or start drawing
  • Drag panel handles to resize, scale and rotate drawings within frame
  • Active template change with images staying the same
  • Organize your book (watch it page flip), publish it to a URL
  • Export to image, PDF, save your template to the gallery


Anyone and everyone is welcome to contribute. As it's about making comic books or and webcomics I doubt I'm the only programmer who has a wishlist for an app like this.
