I hope this isn't too far off topic.
Is there an interchange format for comics/manga, similar in concept to MKV + VIDO + AUDIO + ASS? Subtitles for comics + position of panels, page, chapter, volume?

CBR and CBZ have been common for a while. You could also use any e-reader format (pdf, epub, lit, docx).
There is no ONE format, just as there is no one format in audio, video, subtitles, etc.
Those sound like formats for rendering the content. I'm thinking about something that represents, among other things, where subtitles would go when rendering the content. So, for example, a text box could be on:
Text box 4
And then things like
Following: Panel 4
Manga Comics are usually scanned, and hard coding the text in your favorite image editor (by removing the kanji in the text bubble and inputing the appropriate translation).CBZs are just zip file of a collection of jpgs that comprise the manga. I don't think there is a soft-sub equivalent of .ass in this case

Yeah, and currently, all subs formats are referencing overlay planes on top of video background. So the idea of pane/panel has no equivalent.
