from Scott Pilgrim & the Infinite Sadness, 2006
i used to see these in manga and I wanted to do the most complicated one I possibly could.
Make a more complicated version that uses a transparent layer on top of things to expose deeper relationships.. or one that uses pop-up book stuff.
As I quite liked this, and after seeing the movie, every time I see this, I hear it as Stacey explaining how everyone is connected to Scott as he nods along.
script excerpt from Scott Pilgrim Vs The Universe, 2008
the scene as it appeared:
Huh, I didn’t realize you wrote like a normal comic book writer, then did art that way as well. I figured you writer/artists do some sort of weird hybrid of sketches with word balloons as a pre-script.
