It's completely different. It's like a brand new world of story. The blend of the images and the text creates this poetic thing we call 'comics'.

There's nothing more exciting than seeing the story you write with balloons and captions. With words that tell a story to go along with your images.

Together, image and words tell the complete story and none really works without the other. Not entirely, anyway. My excitement only grows as the other artists from the anthology start to send in the pages they're doing. It makes me want to do my best work, which is the whole reason you look for collaboration: working with others makes you think about what they're doing and about what you're doing, and thinking is the most important part of the creative process.

Think about it.
