Awhile ago, I wanted to adapt this classic Roald Dahl short story into a comic. My effort lasted about 3 pages. ;)

I tracked down a book with this story in it based on your intro, here. Dahl was one of the great ones. And now, I know the word exegetical, so my life was enriched in more ways than one.

Your comic adaptation, I think, would've worked better had it been a manga about a machine that draws and writes manga.

Ha! that's excellent. Indeed, would love to make it into a story about a manga making machine. I would name it: Osamu Tezuka. ;)

I am familiar with some of his titles. You think he produced work as prolifically and unimaginatively as a machine?

As prolifically yes, but not as unimaginatively. I've read that he was capable of producing 10 sequential pages a day. Wicked fast. They don't call him The God of Manga for nothin'! ;)
