Behind the Google Chrome comic

The New York Times discusses Google's decision to use a comic to illustrate the thinking and concept behind the new Chrome browser, including an interview with Scott McCloud, the creator of the comic. A notable quote:

“I don’t think the potential for comics in nonfiction has been exploited nearly as much as it could be,” [McCloud] said. And what they can teach people should not be underestimated. “When you’re on an airplane and your life depends on it,” Mr. McCloud said, “comics are going to tell you how to open an emergency exit.”
