comics can be read or watched, but it can also be played. we can also create comics that are especially meant to be played (on various musical instruments). sometimes the words in speech balloons can be sung, the onomatopoeias (sound effects) also give us great opportunities. well, it's obvious that composers often use graphic notation to write music - it would be great to see works where comics are used this way in our anthology.
