You mean this one?
"Comics are a mass medium we go into on our own.
We don't experience it in company, the way we do film, TV, or often music.
You don't gather twelve of your friends around a comic, nor does your family huddle around it together in the evenings.
And you normally can't dance to one, nor can you attempt to have sex in the toilets next door to one. Well, actually, that's not true. But you see my point. Comics aren't a group experience.
But when you pick up a comic, you know that many other people are doing it too, or have done.
You've seen the reviews in the newspaper and other culture magazines. You're experiencing it in the context of a culture simultaneously experiencing it and conjuring general conversation about it.
And I-- oh."
