“Comics are a very rich art-form for me, halfway between writing and cinematics. Each box contains sense and symbols, while allowing fluidity of reading. It is also a medium that is accessible and popular — we just need a sheet of paper, a pencil and a good story. It offers great creative freedom, which makes me want to tell stories involving the three things that fascinate me: drawing, staging and writing history.”
