Iâ€™ve worked in television, and there are a hundred people between you and the audience. Iâ€™ve worked in film, and there are a thousand people between you and the audience. In comics, thereâ€™s me and an artist, presenting our stories to you without filters or significant hurdles, in a cheap, simple, portable form. Comics are a mature technology. Their control of time â€” provided youâ€™re not intent on reversing universes (or even if you are) â€” makes them the best educational tool in the world. Hell, intelligence agencies have used comics to teach people how to dissent and perform sabotage.
