Walt Simonson sent me a copy of a Spanish fanzine called PLOT. The bulk of the issue is all about "Days of Future Past". Apparently a really thorough analysis, but my Spanish is non-existant, so I can't read any of it.

Which brings me to a curious point: one of the illustrations is a photo of three typed pages, apparently by Chris. One page is a "precis" of the story, one the first page of the script, and the third, mostly covered by the other two, is what appears to be a plot, including a detailed description of the art on the splash page.

So, my question to Spanish Forum members is this: if you can find a copy of this 'zine, can you tell me how the caption describes these pages? As most of the world knows, DoFP was my story, and I received no "precis" or "plot" from Chris. So.... what is this?

JB - have you tried Google translate for those captions?  I do this for work sometimes and I can get the gist of what is meant if not the overall meaning.

To add to Steven's suggestion the Google Translate iPhone app can translate printed text in front of you in realtime using the built-in camera...it's freaky how well it works.

It may not suit your needs completely, but it's worth checking it out if you haven't already.

Well, I'm Spanish. Maybe if you can post a picture I might be of help.

OK, John. I'm trying to get a copy of PLOT here in Valencia. If I find it I'll tell you about it.

I believe this is published by Ferran Delgado who is a member here, and there are some sample pages on his blog:  http://ferrandelgado.blogspot.com/
