“La Historieta no es como el Cine”

¿actuamos como caballeros?

Comics are not like film. Comics take things from film, but the two cannot be interchanged. Comics became a hybrid artform. They take things from cartoons, illustration, prose, theatre, film, music, t-shirts, posters, journalism and a dozen other things. Imagine putting twenty different animals in a blender and that the resulting horror emerged somehow alive, shrieking and wearing Star Wars underpants three sizes too small. That’s comics.”

— Warren Ellis

“La Historieta no es como el Cine. La Historieta toma prestados elementos del Cine, pero ambos medios no pueden intercambiarse. La Historieta es una forma de arte híbrida. Toma elementos de la animación, la ilustración, la prosa, el teatro, el cine, la música, las playeras, los posters, el periodismo y una docena de otras cosas. Imagina meter veinte animales diferentes en una licuadora y que el horror resultante emergiera, de alguna manera, con vida y vistiendo tan solo unos calzoncillos de Star Wars tres tallas más pequeñas. Eso es la Historieta.”

— Warren Ellis
