"Comics is like poetry... The chord it strikes in people who are attracted to it is so strong it can be impossible to explain to someone who doesn't experience that... It's the virtual world aspect of them. You're actually inside it. When you're really enjoying a comic you're inside the space like nothing else. The way you have control over the time it takes to read it. You've got control over this continuum... to explore that emotion of the comic talking to you, developing it's own language, to control how you read the comic and how you would have certain kind of experiences while you read the comic. So those are ideas ready to be played with: the actual thing in your hand and how the characters react with it."
