I think most comics being made today are generally pretty bad, but the medium is inherently limitless. it’s just words and pictures. You can tell any type of story you want. You can do things they can’t do in movies & cartoons, because they have budget limitations and schedules and deadlines, lawyers and producers and accountants. The real world gets in their way. YOU can literally just sit down with a pencil and make something better than anything you’ve ever seen on a screen. It’s all that stuff they tell you when you’re a kid about how your imagination has unlimited potential. comics are just an extension of your imagination. So start drawing and don’t stop drawing.

I may not be the biggest fan of “Scott Pilgrim,” but I can’t deny just how vital this statement is for anyone wondering why comics are still an important medium. I saw this on O’Malley’s tumblr and I couldn’t resist sharing it.
