I found these videos on Youtube from this girl who create a cartoon version of Yes. The draws looks like a  manga style, like "Yes stories for kids" or something. I think it will be a good idea create Prog Comics, what do you think? Tongue

I saw it yestereday on Youtube. Prog comics?
ConfusedPerhaps ones based on the concepts like Kobiaia,
 but not comics based on the bandsConfusedDead, who would the villians be? -Malcom McClaren, Yoko Ono  and Phil Collins?

But frankly I think if you start wanting to create prog comics its time to  reasses your life.

Would there be as many episodes as Magma records? Even more? this could be a big long series.
 
I think it should be written with talk bubbles in Kobaian and with English captions so those of us who didn't bother learning the language can understand.

I think it should be a musical with subtitles. 

I think it could be done in 3 episodes: Kobaia/1001 Degrees, Theuz Hamtaahk (all three movements), and Emehnteht-Re (all three movements).

In that case it should be a broadway musical (although with that kind of singing it could be an operaLOL)

These videos are a joke right?  Also, since when does Alan White and Steve Howe look almost the same?  In-fact, they all look the damn same.  ALSO!, where the hell is Bill Bruford, Peter Banks, and Tony Kaye?  These videos make me wanna puke.  Next thing you know, this person will make cartoons of Soft Machine, Hawkwind, Gentle Giant, and Kraftwerk.

You can see them in the second video. And what do you spect for a young girl who is a Yes & Pokemon Fan?


BTW, I remember a comicbook about Genesis, it was about the story of the band in Gabriel era.

I use to enjoy the Hawklord books of Moorcock and Butterworth based on Hawkwind - they would make great cartoons.

I don't ewanted to sound harsh but looking at some responses I'm not the oly one.
 
This drawings (not cartoos) without a plot (No manga connection) look like the drawings my 10 years nephew did on her scrapbook for N'Sync a couple years ago.
 
I find them horrendous to be honest, rude but hnest.

Actually Hawkwind would be kinda cool. Captain Turner and Calvert going on acid fuelled space adventures with Lemmy flying the spaceship. It could be all psychedelic like the animation in the Yellow Submarine, which actually worked wonderfully and is one of favorite movies. Maybe the Soft Machine going on adventures with Syd Barrett and William S. Burroughs into psychedelic realms. The story of the early Soft Machine and Gong is a pretty amazing story.

Yeah, I was thinking that it would be pretty amazing if they made a trippy cartoon in Yellow Submarine style animation about the Flying Teapot Trilogy. It could be really cool if they did it right.

That would be interesting to see actually.  I was basically saying that it would be horrendous if that same person made the same cartoons based upon those band I mentioned lol.

Yeah, pretty much anything done in that style of animation will suck, there's absolutely no artistic value. I can see a Flying Teapot movie having artistic value though.

There seems to be a bit of slash in that last picture on the first video. And the second video is littered with Yesslash. Heart

But I'm disapponted that none of the pictures have my OTP. Squire/Howe is cute, as is White/Wakeman, but I'm more of a Khoroshev/Anderson fan.Embarrassed

Implying that this particular style of artwork originated with Pokemon is like implying that Dream Theater created prog.  Ouch

...and are you saying 'gay' like it's a bad thing?  Are you trying to say that it's bad to be gay?  That Squire and Howe, or White and Wakeman...  don't look cute together?  Because if that's what you're saying, we've got a problem.  Angry

Who cares if someone thinks being gay is a good thing or a bad thing, as long as people treat each other with respect and dignity is all that matters,Hug after all its just an opinion.

Wink Right!!
Come I like it and I am very happy to see young girls these day to be into prog that's is extremely rare here in the USA specially  in NY. when the youth are plague with rap-and punkDead so don't crucify this great achievement from a young child.!!!
I have a 11 years old and I'll be super hyper if my daughter would be into prog and master of the genre as YES.
Cry I am trying very hard to get her into prog/jazz/fusion but I am not succeeding
thanks to   F*&^$CK   MTV.Angry

Is it just me or does Wakeman resemble Legolas from Fellowship of the Rings?  And Steve Howe wishes he looked that good!  Wink
