This paper presents comic strips as an approach to align personas and narrative scenarios; the resulting visual artifact was tested with information security practitioners, who often struggle with wider engagement. It offers ways in which different professional roles can work together to share understanding of complex topics such as information security. It also offers user-centered design practitioners a way to reflect on, and participate with, user research data.
