there is no truly superior media, Form follows function, hard to judge form without knowing function. therefore without addressing what you’re trying to achieve it is impossible to determine what is “better”
If you think color TV is superior to black and white, i can give you a couple stories that could not be told with color.
so would it be “Better” very difficult to tell.
Now i’m using a comic intro in a game i’m currently making (and will be making for a long time) So if you ask me, it is a method that takes less effort ( 1 good comic page is still easily 6 hours of work, but 1 min of animation is 600 pictures. assuming you’re at 10fps and no layers.) Also in comics you won’t be compared to million dollar works, because comics generally aren’t that expensive.
But i also have animations because you can’t shock people with loud noises using a comic. the best you could do is a 2 page spread of something scary.
