Storyboards and comics can be a huge boon to project management and to research. They help declare vision and demonstrate process, and storyboards and comics can be used at every stage of product development.
I have used storyboard for research studies and for product vision work for several years now.
Sample 1 : Product Vision for a web-based seminar and training tool.
Sample 2 : Product Concept for an app designed to complement conferences and events.
