Welcome to the Wonderful World of Word Balloons!

Napoleon Dynamite with SuperLame Word Balloons has just launched it’s public Beta. What is SuperLame? Well, I’m glad you asked. You may have heard the saying, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. So, if a picture alone is worth that much, how much more can you say with a picture that actually has words too? We’re betting more than a thousand.

Enter, SuperLame and our Comic Balloon Engine. Basically, it’s a simple web tool that gives users the power to easily and quickly add word balloons, speech bubbles, thought bubbles, whatever you want to call them, to your pictures.

Best of all, the entire tool is free for anyone to use. However, if you would like to donate to our cause, we wouldn’t turn you down, of course, and hey, it’s a tax right off, right?

The above picture is an example of what you can do with SuperLame. But, don’t take our word for it, check it out for yourself. Enjoy.
