Each frame from a comic strip is published on a seperate billboard. Kids with camera equiped phones can send each other the pictures they find to assemble the story on a website.

Perhaps there should be an extra incentive to collect, like a price when you hunt down the most images. Make the punchline rare to find for a while, only posted to one billboard at the end of a subway line.

Before camera equipped phones, there was "Burma Shave": http://www.fiftiesweb.com/burma.htm

       I think I like this idea.. but what would be the point of it? Would it be a clever marketing device? Or a cult thing?

       The point of this kind of marketing would be that it would 'engage' the target group with the message. It is increasingly difficult to attract their attention. If it turns out to become a cult thing to collect all the cartoons it would be a dear thing for the advertiser.
