Dear all,

I'm planning to write my master's thesis on the nature of the dialog data
from comic strips/books that might be seen somewhere in between spoken and
written language. Is anyone of you aware of corpora containing comic texts
(any language, though I'll focus on German)? Ideally the data should
indicate speaker--utterance(s) relations.

So far, I've seen a description of a comic corpus of bosnian, croatian and
serbian comic series that was tailor made for a special survey on a slavic
deictic system and marked up accordingly:

Any further pointers would be most welcome.

Best regards, Axel Herold.

mit dem behaglichen Schnurren, das den Leser hypnotisiert,
nachdem der Schriftsteller als erster ihm zum Opfer gefallen ist.
