I would like to start a 4-Koma thread because i think it would be very fun to see what other people might come up with.
What the hell is 4-Koma?
Yonkoma manga (4コマ漫画, "four cell manga", or 4-koma for short?), a comic-strip format, generally consists of gag comic strips within four panels of equal size ordered from top to bottom. (They also sometimes run right-to-left horizontally or use a hybrid 2x2 style, depending on the layout requirements of the publication in which they appear.) Though the word yonkoma comes from the Japanese, the style also exists outside of Japan in other Asian countries as well as in the English-speaking market.
How do i go about making one of these?
Well i have included a blank template which you can use as the basis of your 4-Koma comic. All of these 4-koma comics tend to stick to this structure
* Ki: The first panel forms the basis of the story; it sets the scene.
* Sho;: The second panel develops upon the foundation of the story laid down in the first panel.
* Ten: The third panel is the climax, in which an unforeseen development occurs.
* Ketsu: The fourth panel is the conclusion, in which the effects of the third panels are seen.
1.) You must use the template provided

2.) Try not to use pictures; if you do they must have something added to them by the user (eg. something photoshoped in them). Generally try to stick to drawing the comic.
3.) Have fun!
