Have you ever wondered what you would look like placed into a scenario from your favourite TV show or film? Fancied becoming your favourite cartoon character? Then I bring you Comicsus.
To get started with Comicsus all you need is an idea, a small glimmer in your mind, of what you, your other half, friends or children might be doing in this mystical, magic or futuristic moment. You don’t need to know everything about it; just a small description will be enough to set one of Comicsus team of profession comic artists on the right track to making your comic dream come true.
One of mine and Ash’s favourite shows at the moment is The Walking Dead, so teaming that with the fact it is very different from the other pictures we have had done, The Walking Dead become our theme to work with. Ash knew exactly what he wanted straight away – to be carrying a chainsaw and a head, me on the other hand I wasn’t too sure – but with a bit of help from Ash, we decided a machete would be a good weapon for me. The other details we came up with were that we wanted to be walking through a field with a few zombies behind us, of course as well as your ideas you need to pop through a few pictures and then the wait begins.
Comicsus aim to have a digital copy of your finished picture with you in around 10 days; however you don’t just send your ideas and then not hear anything until you receive the finished article. Once your personal comic illustrator has completed the outline of your picture you get to have the chance to ‘ok’ it and of course if you aren’t feeling happy let them know any alterations you wish to have done.
Once the outline is just as you want it – then the next time you will see your image is the finished product.
Comicus pictures are available in a number of different formats digital prints start at £39.95, canvas at £59.95 sized at 16″ x 20″, framed posters at £59.95 for an A3 sized one, while you can get unframed A2 posters for £49.95 all posters and canvas also include a digital copy. All the prices listed are for 1 or 2 people included in the picture, if you want more, then an additional charge is payable.
Personally I love my Comicsus, I was really impressed with the time it took for it to be completed and the communication throughout the process to make sure I was happy with how the image was turning out was just right. I felt like I could really have the final say, no matter how small each detail was – if I wanted them to change something it would have been ok, though I have to say I couldn’t find anything I felt needed changing in mine at all.

What do you think of how myself and Ash comic’d ourselves; how could you see yourself pictured?
