“What you do with comics, essentially, is take pieces of experience and freeze them in time.
The moments are inert, lying there on the page in the same way that sheet music lies on the printed page.
In music you breathe life into the composition by playing it.
In comics you make the strip come alive by reading it, by experiencing it beat by beat as you would playing music…”
