The idea is simple: Create a comic storyline, completely improvised one panel to the next, and alternate panels between each artist. Still confused? Scott creates a panel one day, and Len does the next one, and so on. (Scott started with the first…and then Len with the second, and the pattern continues from there.)Should be fun to see where it ends up. Check it out here.
No idea where this might end but we are thinking 50 total panels or something. Enjoy!

Visitors to the site are letting Sony have it in the comments. Says one: “If you want a PSP badly enough you should get together with an ad agency. Then try to sell the product through a lame website while attempting to speak down to what you consider your target audience.” Even more comical: “Charlie” keeps posting his denials, in pseudo hip-hop speak. More than once he writes, “yo where all u hatas com from... juz cuz you aint feelin the flow of PSP dun mean its sum mad faek website or summ... youall be trippin.”I have to admit. I feel kind of bad for the agency. I mean, here they have a huge client in Sony who is asking them to create some viral marketing for their lagging gaming system and they get totally trashed for it. Ah well. Live and learn, Zipatoni. If you're going to do viral marketing, focus on making it organic and as real as possible. No one is going to fall for this kind of crap.

"Thanks for suggesting the Watterson article, however. I'll be removing the non-notable podcast reference."He has since said this:
"For what it's worth, maybe you should actually check the history before making personal attacks against me on your blog. I could not find and therefore did not remove the reference. "I guess he would also have to remove us from the Bill Watterson article, and deny the talk I gave on the podcast in the spring to Lakeland Community College. The talk that Watterson's former editor and Executive VP and Editor for Universal Press Syndicate, Lee Salem stayed to hear. It's one thing to get deleted for not meeting guidelines. It's quite another to decide that any reference to a deletion is therefore bad and not relevant simply because an original article doesn't meet criteria. Revisionism, anyone?
