Don't forget to check out my other Emoticomics:…

So what do you think? Can a picture only tell a thousand words if someone has written a thousand words on said picture?
Personally I believe a picture can indeed tell a thousand words, but there are many things a picture can not say. I mean, how would you know that the Mona Lisa is actually a depiction of a perfectly cloned human, or that The Last Supper was actually a future depiction of a theme park attraction of automatons recreating that picture. You honestly can't say either of these things without words, so you can not prove that those aren't the things that those pictures represent.
Still, the fact that I was only able to reference Da Vinci's work, proves how little knowledge I have in the history of art.

What I love about comics though, is that it combines two great cultural mediums into one even better medium. If pictures can say a lot in a small space but are limited to what they can say, and words can say anything but need a lot to say something detailed, then together you should have the perfect medium to which you can place your creativity. Unfortunately for some reason, people seem to look down at comics. It's almost like two positives made a negative. You combine two things which are held in very high regard by the rich and pompous, and you get something which is thought to only be for kids and is looked down by all but the nerdy. Seriously, we live in one messed up world.

Hold on, was I supposed to say something funny in this comment... oops.

Pictures can tell words... :nod: But i can't imagine how one comic page could fit 1000 words into it, because it's roughly more than 2 A4 pages. In Times New Roman, size 12. Impossible to fit into a comic page.
