And I had worked at the comic-book store almost by accident, because I was deciding to make a living as an artist, be it as an art tutor or illustrator, and that's how I wanted to make my living.
The drawing and the crafting of the story are fun, but it's the overall meaning that matters to me. It might escape some people who just want to read a comic, and that's fine. The overall meaning is what matters.
One similarity I see between peers and some of the people who read my books is that comics were definitely an outlet for us.
You're as good as the people you're with.
I never look at things again once they're done.
