Cool. I'll definitely make a note of that, 'cause I'm not the best at humor-based art. Everything that I draw comes out all raggedly expressive.

I could see several stylistic routes to go, some of which (e.g. comic book) I have practice in, and some of which (e.g. beavis & butthead) I don't.

I think this game would lend itself well to an atypical format -- comic book, product manual, children's book, etc. The early, small Dave Barry collections come to mind for some reason.

I really like the idea of doing it like a comic book. The seed of the game was actually in a comic idea that I had, "Nonsense Comix." The example characters, like Chainsaw the Angry Bear, Joe Fixit: the world's toughest handyman, and Greg from Accounting, were all from a late-night brainstorming session that I did for Nonsense Comix. I never drew any, though.

Aw man, now I'm remembering my own ludicrous comic brainstorms. I had one which was a team of superteam stereotypes, with Leader Man, Gun Man, Large Man, Ninja Man and Girl Man...

Hell, maybe SAN! could BE a comic... you ever read Understanding Comics? It's proof that the form can be used to convey information directly...

Girl Man! That's hilarious. I need to find that sketch that I wrote about the Action Sandwich Team; you'd get a kick out of that.

SAN! as a comic is a very very interesting idea.

And, yes, I've read Understanding Comics. And the sequel, too. Great stuff. It always makes me want to do a comic, which I never get around to. Got lots of ideas though (both silly and serious).
