Are Words Better Than Pictures?

Robert Horton and Steve Scher are back with the Overlook Podcast, grappling with the relative worth of the graphic novel, the comic book, the movie and the written word.
Is the written word a better vehicle for the imagination than the graphic novel or the movie? Are the pictures in your head that are formed from the words you read create a more indelible and valuable experience than those formed from an artist’s rendering or the image projected on the screen? Some people ¬†will argue that books are superior because they engage the imagination in a more profound way.Steve says pshaw to that notion. Robert has some deep thoughts.

Hope you will find Robert online at The Crop Duster and at The Seattle Weekly and the Everett Herald.

Look for Steve doing political commentaries on Northwest Cable News and if you are so inclined, have a read of his essay on art in our cities at City Arts magazine.
