    Are you thinking of something like political cartoons but multi-frame?

    Have you looked in the graphic book section of the bookstore to see what people are doing there?

      I am thinking a Muti-frame comic which is not bound to any topic. I want it to be universal and to address all the issues in a funny/sarcastic way.

      In the bookstores here, people do not pay much attention to the graphic section. It has a very limited fan base and they generally follow stories. So new volumes of a series. In case of a web-comic on the other hand is difficult to ascertain the fanbase. Multiple genres and multiple narratives. I just want to know what is received well, humor/sarcasm or in the face facts.
