"Although I enjoy working in the European album format, I have a special fondness for the American comic book format. I love that the author can do exactly as he pleases... I enjoy playing with new formats, new approaches to narration — I like pantomime, I like autobiography, I like adventure, I like stupid humor, I like sophisticated humor, I like nonsense humor. We can do everything in comics, even things that haven't been done yet; it's a wide-open playing field." — Lewis Trondheim
