Comics are much harder to write than any form that I’ve ever written. Comics call for a precise control of time. Individual panels that present a certain number of time in a panel, and the gutters inbetween, it could be a billion years or the very next instant, and you have to choose the moment within that period of time. If you see a panel and there’s a couple of people talking, and there’s three balloons, it might cover 30-40 seconds, or a panel could be someone throwing a punch, and that’s less than a second. You always have to make those decisions in comics, and in animation or live-action or feature, you don’t.
