well, thats what he's asking, to me i dont even consider it inferior, its just two different things.which is why i asked in terms of what? since HE already called it inferior.is it like watching the movie version of Lion King and its theatrical production?kung in terms of artistic value and sosyal meter , syempre iba pa rin ang stage play.i think anyone can watch and appreciate movies.
the only comics i read were comic strips,in news papers.compared to? in terms of what ba, literature appreciation?id admit I didnt/dont read shakespeare, hugo and other classical writings.the closest i got to was allan poe's in h.s. because his were short stories, and the iliad/ odyssey in elem. as well as the Filipino novels, ibong adarna, Florante and laura, noli and el Fili, being mandatory readings in filipino. and those selected stories in Gems. our literature textbooks.i dont think reading comics is comparable/ at par, even with contemporary novels/ stories like Dan Browns, Sidney Sheldon, GG Martin, even JK Rowling's Harry Potter.iba pa rin.
