A few months back, I started writing a film script.  I had it about halfway done when I arrived in Tokyo last month. Inspired by the ubiquitous culture of comics, manga, and animated characters, I started sketching out storyboards to turn the script into a comic book (or graphic novel, if you’re one of those people). I can’t draw well enough to do it myself, so I found a woman in Mexico City whose style -best described as a sort of graphic magical realism- to do the pictures for me. She’s not available until June, though, so in the meantime I’ve been doing research on how best to use formatting and page layout to tell the story effectively. In the course of my research, I found these comic panels from various websites, most of which are real (two are not). Because I am a simpleton juvenile, they amused me. And, obviously, these comic writers were clearly having a bit of fun.
