     Subject: Scribus for Comics
I am thinking about using Scribus on my Mac for the graphic novel I am  
currently doing.  I have page layouts at 10x15, and the original plan was to  
take my Wacom tablet and draw/trace these pages into a DTP (I was thinking  
InDesign at first).  Is that functionality available with Scribus, and will  
it let me manipulate fonts and images?  How meaty is the image editor (is it  
comparable to Photoshop)?

I'm 100% for supporting open-source and Linux/Unix products, but I need to  
know if it has all the functionality I would need.  I am a newbie to DTPs  
(used to be a pen-and-paper girl), so any info would be great to have.
