13: It’s All in the Manual



PK, Andy, and Sean slouched into stiff-backed wooden chairs around a small, unpretentious table. The table was adorned with an electronic microphone in shades of black and silver, attended by a little black cord that wended its way out of sight to where a grim laptop waited expectantly. PK cleared his throat, a faint breath of dinner on his lips, to announce the idea, an an idea that had burrowed into his mind over the course of a hundred sleepless nights. An idea that had taken root in his psyche and burned until he could keep silent no longer. An idea that would change everything.

“Today,” he said, “today, we’re here to talk about minimalist storytelling.”

06: You Don’t Touch Batman’s Woman
