"Comics keep history from becoming dull"

Comics occupy a dimension parallel to conventional magazine publishing; similar form, different motivation. CanadianArt.ca has just published a special feature on comics by freelancer writer Kenton Smith. He interviewed comics publisher Chris Oliveros, founder of the Montreal-based publisher Drawn & Quarterly, who says 
“the work today is so diverse—everyone has a unique vision.”....And besides, he explains, “comics’ visual dimension makes a story more engaging, and keeps history from being dull.”
