"Leaps of the imagination are an enormous pleasure, and comics are particularly good at sparking them. Their narrative is one kind of guide; their style is another." -- Douglas Wolk

"[C]artooning gets at, and re-creates on the page, some sixth sense--of space and of being in a body--in a way no other medium can quite so easily, or at least so naturally." -- Chris Ware

"No orthodoxy of 'reading' is without its blind spots." -- Marjorie Garber
