Three quotes from Ware: Conversations

“More than anything I was just trying to get a real sense of what it felt like to be alive, and there’s a lot of those moments in life. I didn’t want to ignore them. I wanted to try to put them on the page, to try to get a real sense of time passing.”

“You don’t read a book trying to get emotion out of the font that it’s printed in. You read it for the story. You read for what happens in your mind, and to me comics are some sort of magic language that happens before your eyes.”

“I guess I’ve used birds in some stories as a way of linking together narrative passages that happened in different time periods, maybe to kind of create a hint of causation between two different times.”
