I think this is one of the most interesting uses of Comic Life (comic book creation software)… Josh Administrative Director of Locksport International writes – “Locksport International is proud to provide a simple, visual guide to lock picking. It is our hope that beginners will find this useful in learning the basic skills of picking pin tumbler locks – LSI is Locksport International, a worldwide organization of lockpicking enthusiasts who meet on a regular basis to discuss their hobby, share ideas, and work to advance the promotion of locksports within their community.” [via] – Link.
