Following the success of the Artifex Forge’s Retro Comic Book Tool Kit, it felt only fair to offer Photoshop users a similar opportunity. Therefore, I am proud to present the Vintage Comic Creator with its fantastically extensive selection of layer styles, patterns and overlays, designed specifically to help you easily and quickly create vintage comic book themed designs.

Vintage Comic Creator

Check out the video below to see how easy it is to use the Vintage Comic Creator!

All of the textures in the previews were sampled from genuine vintage comic books, giving the designs that real-life feel. These effects are perfect for vintage fair posters, comic book convention materials, retro party flyers, cards, invites and loads more.

How it works:

To use, simply place text, your own images and/or the comic book vector shapes into one of the overlay .PSDs and then apply the one click styles as desired.

So, what exactly is included?

The Styles:

Using real ink and halftone textures these are supplied in 30 varieties so you can apply the styles to text, bitmap and vector images with simply one click. The effects used in the styles can easily be independently scaled and edited after application.

The Overlays:

These are the distressed texture that you see in the previews. There are two different designs both measuring 2320 x 1544 pixels in size. Each .PSD contains three layers of texture, which can be turned on and off as needed.

The Repeat Patterns:

You get all of the patterns that were used in the styles so you can use them separately for greater flexibility. Here are the sizes:

Colored Ink patterns – 3000 x 3000 px, Halftone Patterns – 3000 x 3000 px, Black Ink Pattern – 2000 x 2000 px.

The Custom Vector Shapes:

Speech bubbles, flashes, explosions, clouds and more! Use these to build your design. Because they are in vector format, they can be scaled infinitely.

Example Files:

I’ve included the first four preview images as .PSDs for your reference. All are layered and easily editable.


A very thorough guide on how to load, apply and then edit the effects is supplied. Please read carefully all the way through as it provides all the information you might need on how to load and use these effects.

Software compatibility: Adobe Photoshop CS5 and newer.

  1. Ruby DC

    I purchased this kit from Envato. I’m wondering why the custom vector shapes are not included in the kit that I bought there. Is there any way I can get them?

    • Annabel Smith

      Oh no I am so sorry to hear that you are having difficulty locating your custom vector shapes! As you did not purchase this from us, we are unfortunately unable to take a look into your order to see where these are possibly featured in your downloads. In this instance would recommend getting in touch with the Envato support team directly and they should be able to help you further :).

    Was the issue with the repeat patterns ever fixed? Looking to verify before purchasing.

    • Zack Parks

    I am having the same issue as the above user. The Google Drive link in the PDF that is supposed to link to the texture repeat patterns is not working. It says the link does not exist. Would love to get these patterns as soon as possible!
