Cartoonists Tell Us: What Do Comics Mean To You?

The first comic that I really connected to was Buddha by Osamu Tezuka. I found a busted copy of it at a used book store when I was 10. And after finding it I could hardly put it down; I found the drawings so entrancing. It was the first time I remember thinking that the drawn world could be even more beautiful than the real one.

In honor of our big summer reader poll of favorite comics and graphic novels, we’ve asked a few very cool cartoonists to tell us — or really, draw for us — what comics mean to them.
