I saw this in a Real Simple magazine (June 2009) and thought it was such a great idea! Tell your favorite story by becoming characters in a comic strip-like story!! This starts at $200.
The website is called Elsewares, and it is a bit like ETSY from what I can tell, for artists. It is fascinating--so many beautiful things. I can see myself looking around the site and getting sidetracked for a while!
What a fabulous and creative idea!
