“What I find attractive about sequential art is the potential to tell your story the exact way that you envision it. In film, the story will be re-processed through the visions of the director, the script writer, the actors, etc., and often strays from its original state. Compared to that, I find that comics allow for a raw, personal and more direct form of story-telling.”
