While I appreciate the art, what I really love about comics is still motion story-telling. The invisible panel, what happens in between panels is always for the reader to imagine. Its more interactive than other mediums. I must say sometimes I would rather imagine what the main character looks like, but comics paints a visual picture in front of my eyes. That's how it creates it world. And I really, really love comics for its stillness- to be able to visualize the story without the fast pace of the movie.

I love art and I'm a very visual person, so comic books are one of my favorite kinds of books :) I like the short, little light-hearted comics the best -- the kind that you'd find in the Sunday papers, so another thing that I like about comics is the bit of entertainment, amusement and gratification that they can offer just at a glance.

For me, I love the medium and the way that it allows for the visual storytelling elements of the cinema (such as montage, specific angles, creates atmosphere, etc.) and then combines it with literature's ability to express characters' inner thoughts and dialogue on the page. Graphic literature doesn't need to explain word for word the environment of the story, hence more time can be spent on events, dialogue, and characterization. It also creates a unique pace. With films, the story moves very quickly and you don't have the opportunity to slow things down to absorb all of the nuances of performance or all of the little details of the plot. On the other hand, with literature sometimes you're given too much of this and you feel bogged down with specifics that aren't necessary to move the plot forward. With graphic literature, you get to choose how much of the information you absorb, you get to decide how long you spend on each page looking over the images and contemplating the text, and that is a wonderful luxury for a reader to have.

I love the fact that it combines two Arts, the Art of storytelling and Visual Art. For me to really like a Comic these two have to come together. Sometimes you have Great drawings but poor story and vice verse you can have a great story badly illustrated. But the Greats like Carl Barks, Herge and Robert Crumb combine these two factors very well.
