Comics Out in the World

I always thought that it would be cool to have comics out in public places where people could experience them serendipitously. My "big idea" was to put strips up in buses (lots of buses have space for horizontal interior ads which would be ideal for comic strips). Ivan Brunetti (one of the finest cartoonists we have) and the city of Las Vegas has a different idea of how to make comics public--a story told in street banners.


These banners will be in place over a street in Vegas for a full year. I don't know how big they will be, so I wonder if you can "read" them while driving, or if it will take walking the whole length to get the story. (Do people walk in Vegas?)

This is a bizarre, totally cool idea. Houston should steal it!
