Does anyone know if there are any good web resources where I can find some captonless comic strips? My kids love comics and I think it would be a fun activity for them to write their own captions.

I'd have them draw their own comics, but I don't have time for that during class.

It is easy to do with an older technology. You just white out all the words and copy the pictures and little balloons on the Xerox. I suppose that is too old fashioned?

Just get some Sunday comics from the paper and white out the captions.
Or you can Google clip art comic strips, print and wite out.

I've been looking for that, too, but alas, no luck. What you could do is grab some webcomics instead of paper comics and white those out, if they're simple enough. Stick-figure style like XKCD. Acknowledging copyright, of course!

Edit: ToonDo is free, though it's not so much comics as cartoons. No drawing skills required! http://community.prometheanplanet.com/en/blog/b/blog/archive/2011/03/21/creativity-in-teaching-ideas-for-comic-strips-part-1.aspx - a useful link.
