Evolving Comics 2.5.1
The interview that Meadows conducted with Scott McCloud was interesting because it primarily discussed the evolution of media when it comes to conveying a narrative, particularly in this case the narrative in the form of a comic. His approach, rather than rejecting the change and evolution that comes with the implementation of new technology, is to embrace the new media and be creative in the delivery of the narrative. He discusses the idea of presenting comics in three dimensional cubes and other interactive ways, but doesn't necessarily limit himself to bringing comics to the monitor. I thought it was interesting how he said that he didn't think 'technology becomes extinct' and that he praises those who 'choose paper rather than having paper chosen for them.' He presents the idea of old medium and new medium collaborating.
