I stumbled onto this comic wandering through Deviant Art and got permission to host it on my blog:

I know in the past I’ve ranted about the adage “A picture is worth one thousand words” and how it has been used to demean the worth of the written word but here I can see nothing but homage to both image and word both in its medium (comic) and in the story’s telling (the artist’s 1000 words to her parents and the girl’s 1000 words to the artist). Both art and the written have their specialty when conveying thought and emotion and this comic beautifully represents that.

Not to ignore the comic’s other masterfully used techniques and its overall message but that was somewhat I wanted to comment on. Check out Wenqing’s other work on her Deviant Art page, or follower her on Facebook.
