A creative option for people who can't draw (or who just want to 'draw' with a camera?) the PhotoComic involves taking pictures of things -- either posed inanimate objects, or actual people -- and making a comic out of them. In the {{webcomics}} world, toys are popular for this. Also became popular in British comics (particularly girls' comics) in the late 1970s and early 1980s; however, it proved unpopular and the ones that didn't shut down (as many were at the time) reverted to drawn strips. Nowadays the best-remembered photo strips seem to be the parodies of photo strips from {{Viz}}. Arguably, Photocomics can be done cheaper and with less time consumption than the other popular choice: {{Machinomics}}. This is because photos lend themselves well to settings where realistic lighting is in high demand, requiring a lot fewer tweaks than would screenshots from a video game.

* When ''ComicBook/{{Eagle}}'' was relaunched in 1982 all of the strips (apart from ''ComicStrip/DanDare'') were photo comics as Fleetway attempted to cash in on the success it had had with girls comics in this format. The book later reverted to traditional drawn strips.

* Some comic strips, especially in the annuals, in both TheBeano and Comicbook/TheDandy make use of this trope. Usually only in one story, not the whole comic, and involving cartoon characters interacting with the photographs.
