[quote]Well, I’ve gotten that sort of impact, that feeling and emotion from many different kinds of media. Music, certainly. Throughout my whole life, there’ve been pieces of music that have had that effect on me. And movies, certain movies. And occasionally comics. It saddened me that I didn’t have quite as many memories of comics doing that for me…one that did was Jim Starlin‘s Warlock, I think it might’ve been issue #9. And granted, I was only fifteen years old, I don’t know that I would’ve necessarily had that same reaction at the age of forty, but that definitely was a powerful feeling, reading that particular book.
Aside from that, I think one of the more moving comics I read was a short story by Carol Tyler called “The Hannah Story” [from Drawn & Quarterly #1, 1994] – I remember that one really hit me emotionally. And there have been a few others. But I would like to see more comics carry an emotional wallop, and I guess this was my bid to put one on that list.[/quote]
