In order to represent large amount of information in form of a video key-frame summary, this paper studies narrative grammar of a comic strip genre and using its natural and inherent sematic rules, lays out summaries in an efficient and user centered way. In addition, a robust real-time algorithm for key-frame extraction is described and the evaluation results are presented.
