Why Comics?

It is, in my mind, the only medium where you can truly create whatever you want. You aren’t bound by the limitations of your budget or reality. I know special effects exist today that enable filmmakers to create things like never before, but a budget is always attached. And a film has to pass through so many gatekeepers before it’s made. Comics allow anyone with a pad and pen to create and share their vision. When writing or reading prose, things get lost in translation. Everyone has their own vision of what they are reading, but with comics, you can directly influence their vision and create ‘your’ world. The only limitation, if you yourself are not the artist, is communication with the artist.
