Scott McCloud’s Google Chrome Comic Parodied at Gizmodo

The work of sequential art scholar Scott McCloud includes some of the most respected teaching tools in comics, particularly his seminal graphic novel series, “Understanding Comics,” “Reinventing Comics” and “Making Comics.”

And so when Gizmodo decided to parody Google’s new operating system by hijacking a sample of McCloud’s 2008 online handbook for the Google Chrome Web browser and turning it on its head with James Bond villain antics, the results were pretty hilarious.

The new Google OS is creating something of a stir since it’s aimed at netbooks, will be available for free… and is made by Google. There’s no word on whether McCloud will return to educate the world on the finer points of Google’s new web-based, open-source operating system, although it would certainly put a lot of smiles on comic fans with techie aspirations.
