The paper presents our system for generating comics from game log. In particular, comic layout is focused. In order to achieve more comic-like expressivity, we extend an existing comic layout process proposed by Shamir et al. as follows. First, tiny frames are introduced for being placed vertically in the same row. Second, splash frames taking up space of several rows are introduced for emphasizing the corresponding frames. Third, slant frames are introduced for shooting events. Comic sequences generated with the proposed layout process and with the existing one are compared and discussed.
