A medium is a bridge between two minds.
I don't think the potential for comics in nonfiction has been exploited nearly as much as it could be.
There's a very big part of me that just wants to take all of comics history and toss it on the bonfire. I'd sort of like to get on to the future.
All through my comics career, I was always trying to reinvent the form. Scott McC
We're down to 60 (customers without power) right now.
That (System Benefit Fund) was set up in the deregulated market. Every month you have the opportunity to check that box. There are about 10,000 customers who contribute to that fund, and we contribute to it in the summer.
Webcomics are much bigger than any one scene can circumscribe.
Comics offers tremendous resources to all writers and artists: faithfulness, control, a chance to be heard far and wide without fear of compromise.
I've always been very forward-looking, and it was actually kind of difficult to turn my gaze backwards to look at comics history.
My dad was an inventor, and I think I've always had a rosy view of technology, or at least its potential.
Sometimes, that can knock some old tree over that's been sitting all summer,
My dad was an engineer and so I had this picture of science and technology and pursuits of the mind as being more impressive than artistic pursuits, which I saw a as kind of frivolous.
This is not a scare tactic -- it's realistic. This is a devastating storm.
My first influences were superhero artists.
It's going to get bad. It's not a pretty sight for East Texas. It's time for SWEPCO to prepare for its own customers. We are already mobilizing our troops,
Form and content must never apologize for each other.
Today, comics is one of the very few forms of mass communication in which individual voices still have a chance to be heard.
We track it and that's our new peak, ... We hadn't had anything close to (the previous mark) in the last five years.
By stripping down an image to essential meaning, an artist can simplify that meaning.
You've got to have extreme temperatures over your entire service area (for peak demand to occur). You've got to keep it at 100 or above for several days.
It would take a lifetime to read all the webcomics published in one year.
And what better way to reinvent the form than to toss virtually 99% of everything that's been done with it and start with a brand-new canvas, reinvent it from the ground up? Digital comics gave me the opportunity to do that, and producing things digitally gave me the opportunity to do that.
As I see it, mainstream comics now speak only to the hardcore few who stayed; conversing in a weird, garbled, visual pig latin only they can understand - rendering the term 'mainstream' a hollow joke - while the true mainstream, the other 99.9% of the populace, find enjoyment elsewhere.
The ancestors of printed comics drew, painted and carved their time-paths from beginning to end, without interruption, ... the infinite canvas.
Right now, we only have three customers without power ï¿½ and that's across three states. So we're not being affected by snow or ice at all.
If you think about it, for any kind of content on the web, the natural price per unit of these things should be under a dollar.
Creator and reader are partners in the invisible creating something out of nothing, time and time again.
When you're free of editorial control, you owe it to yourself to obtain feedback from friends and readers. Some take those criticisms to heart and incorporate it into their work, and some ignore them.
We're watching it and tracking it with our sister companies to plan anything.
