Nugget #84 -- Why Comics?


The complexity of human nature is expressed in the violence 
of adolescents’ hearts. You know what I mean? You could 
read Shakespeare, which actually does that, too, but it 
becomes very complex and intellectualized. In comic books, characters are like, The surface dwellers have destroyed 
my people and I'm gonna make war against them!
