  • While some may find it difficult to use at first, Manga Studio 5 is the best way to create comics on your computer, hands down. If you make comics, buy it.

  • Whether you opt for Manga Studio 5 or EX5, you're getting a worthy upgrade to EX4 that isn't just a powerful tool for creating comic book art – but, as many artists are proving, is powerful for creating amazing digital art in general.

    Over all, Manga Studio 5 EX is an awesome comic- creation app made better. 

    • Pros:

      -Excellent performance; updated brush engine; layer modes; multiple file handling; custom brush creation; new user interface; EX4 page and story file importing.

    • Cons: 

      -Only two features difference between cheap standard version and expensive EX version.

  • Thanks to Manga Studio 5’s new graphics engine, you won’t be able to open files created in previous versions, so if you’ve got a huge library of older Manga Studio files we’d recommend sticking to its predecessor until version 5 is fixed. If you’re new to creating digital art, though, this is a great place to start. Aside from some minor flaws, Manga Studio 5 finally delivers on the promise of an all-in-one comic-creation app.

  • Recently, I was given a chance to check out Manga Studio 5 by Smith Micro. I was a little worried that it wouldn't be user friendly and I would be lost after the install. There's so much you can do with this software, it's almost overwhelming. Since I'm a newbie, I'm going to keep it simple and go over the parts of the software I found easiest to work with.

  • So, overall Manga Studio 5 from Smith Micro is fantastic for anyone looking to get a leg up for comic making made easier or any artist who wants a variety of useful tools.

  • Manga Studio 5 is economically priced for new digital artists with a variety of art making tools, but previous users might wait for Manga Studio 5 Ex to upgrade.

  • The first thing I thought when I opened the program was: "Whoa! It changed a lot from last version, such an amazing change and has a nice and clean interface. It surely looks more friendly". And well to be honest what I thought on the beginning is becoming better and better while I'm testing the tools and the markers.

  • Manga Studio EX4 is a very comprehensive graphic program for creating Manga or comics of any sort. I think the professional Manga Artist or Cartoonist will feel at home and be quite happy with the results this program can achieve. For beginners there is a bit of a learning curve. My suggestion to the beginner is try everything and see what it can do. Once you have done that you will feel much more comfortable with the size and capabilities of this program. I have never drawn a Manga character before this review. After three weeks of learning and experimenting with the program I am pleased with my results. If I can accomplish a nice result, I can only imagine the possibilities of this program in the hands of a professional. Not only can Manga Studio EX4 produce dramatic results it's also a lot of fun.
