It's all about Visual Storytelling. If you make Comic's or Animation movies the most important thing is the story it self: Both genre is Visual but both need the same thoughts behind them to make a great script and  let it become alive.

Dr. Pamela Rutledge's comment, May 27, 2013 1:26 AM
LucaVanin - It can have the same connotation of untruth in the west; just depends on context (and who's paying!) In Entertainment, of course, no one worries about superficial truth. Even (especially?) in Reality TV. What matters is the universal truth that stories can deliver. That is the real litmus test of truth.
