“That’s one of the hardest things to do in comics: to create a character through which the reader can actually feel his or her own emotional memories. It’s much easier in a novel, but when you’re in a sort of half-blind state of looking at pictures on a page, you’re always being bounced back off the page. I really think that that’s Charles Schulz’ greatest achievement as a cartoonist: He really created the first sympathetic cartoon character in Charlie Brown — that was the first cartoon strip with a character that you really, really cared about deeply, so I’ll thank him for that.”
