New comic idea

SUICIDE YAKUZA

Combining Japanese suicide pusher cults, manga cafes, and homeless Yakuza gangsters.

Yes, I am now creating comics solely by going through my file of saved internet news articles and putting three random concepts together.

I don't see how that's a bad thing...

I mean, I'd read Suicide Yakuza, so...

Well, I figure that I'm going to try a Quentin Tarantino-style of comic. Something that's high on action, high on massive gratuitous violence...and throw some plot in as well.

Working on the 9 panel structure...it really is turning out well. So far the character's main defining characteristics are a Yakuza tattoo and the fact that he steals people's wallets and ciggarettes when he goes into their houses.

9-panel and Tarantino-style do not fit well together in my mind.

I'd be curious to see what you turn out, when it's done.

Eh, it kind of does. 9-panel is thought of as the "cinematic" style, at least as Ellis tells it. Its a nice style to work in, though. Its also good for advancing a visual story...though I think I'll be playing with some more extreme variants of it when fights start. But it does provide a LOT of variety when it comes to uses of squares and rectangles.
