where the writers are
PAGE 12 OF THE GRAPHIC MEMOIR "FORGET SORROW"

From an interview with David Small, author of "Stitches":

And there is what makes this form--the graphic book--potentially so very powerful: words analyze and guide us toward an objective view of experience, while pictures –like music--dive straight for the heart.  When the two work well together, I believe you’ve got a powerful tool in your hands . . . .

In books –unlike on a screen--the viewer/reader is more in control of his experience . . . .

I like to say that images get straight inside us, by passing all the guard towers. You often go to the movies and see people with tears streaming down their cheeks, but you don't see this in libraries, not in my experience at least.
