QuotesOnComics.com, run and curated by Paulo Patrício, is exactly what its name says it is: a website with random quotes on comics, some hilarious, some dead serious, others thought-provoking, but all stimulating and thoroughly inspirational.
Press & Mentions
“On Thursday and it was Erik Larsen talking about a Grant Morrison quote (he was supporting it) and yesterday/early this morning it was Ryan K Lindsay pointing out the site as an interesting resource which it is. Quotes are always fun and interesting because it’s just a nugget of what’s actually said. Because of that it can be reinterpreted in different ways.”
“(…) uma compilação de depoimentos curtos, opiniões e até excertos de letras de músicas, ditos ou escritos por diversas personalidades, sobre as HQs. Os textos, que podem ser lidos em sequência ou escolhidos por autor, revelam a diversidade de pessoas que amam – e outras que odeiam – os quadrinhos e formam um banco de dados de citações que pode servir de material de argumentação e fonte de pesquisa ou, simplesmente, como uma divertida leitura.”
“I enjoyed spending too long hitting the ‘Give Me Another Quote’ button a few dozen times. Try it for yourself…”
“An excellent source of free time destruction.”
J. Caleb Mozzocco
“Quotes on Comics gives you what’s in the name, presented randomly for your diversion.”
“Random testimonials such as the above, and other thoughtful quotes from comics practitioners. Proprietor Paulo Patrício hopes to keep expanding it with ever more pithy sayings.”
“This will probably save Dirk Deppey five minutes a day or so when he does ¡Journalista!”
“Quotes from authors, celebrities and artists on comic books, one at a time.”
“A growing collection of sound bites, thoughts, quips, and nuggets of wisdom surrounding the medium.”
“Nos puede parecer algo irrelevante, pero puede tener su utilidad, como poder disponer en cualquier momento de citas curiosas de todo tipo de personas y personajes célebres para añadir a tu blog si es de temática relacionada con el cómic o simplemente pasar unos minutos leyendo frases de autores conocidos.”
“Todos los días una cita sobre tebeos.”
