Form and content must never apologize for each other.
My first influences were superhero artists.
We're watching it and tracking it with our sister companies to plan anything.
Space does for comics what time does for film!
This is part of the mutual assistance program. Companies provide assistance in times of emergencies.
I had a lot of ideas on how comics worked and pretty early on I had this idea that it would be fun to explain them in comics form.
Today, comics is one of the very few forms of mass communication in which individual voices still have a chance to be heard.
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.
They've all had a chance to rest and be in their home base.
It wasn't until I discovered comics that I actually began to approach drawing as a possible career.
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.
[The digital revolution, he argued, would bring comics closer to their roots: cave paintings. Yes, cave paintings.] The ancestors of printed comics drew, painted and carved their time-paths from beginning to end, without interruption, ... the infinite canvas.
This is not a scare tactic -- it's realistic. This is a devastating storm.
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.
By stripping down an image to essential meaning, an artist can simplify that meaning.
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,
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.
The notion of getting under the hood and explaining how something works, that's fairly familiar territory to me.
I don't think the potential for comics in nonfiction has been exploited nearly as much as it could be.
I've always been very forward-looking, and it was actually kind of difficult to turn my gaze backwards to look at comics history.
The ancestors of printed comics drew, painted and carved their time-paths from beginning to end, without interruption, ... the infinite canvas.
A car hit a pole. I believe it was on Gregg Street. It affected 1,500 customers.
We're down to 60 (customers without power) right now.
Typically, you're going to set your peak in August,
To kill a man between panels is to condemn him to a thousand deaths.
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.
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.
Comic book readers are just as abandoned by the corporate system as the creators, despite the importance supposedly given their hard-earned dollars. The average comics shop can offer only a tiny fraction of an industrywide selection that is itself extremely limited in scope. And even when readers kn
Comics offers tremendous resources to all writers and artists: faithfulness, control, a chance to be heard far and wide without fear of compromise.
All through my comics career, I was always trying to reinvent the form.
