I have such trouble explaining my career to people who are just sort of aware of Ghost World or David Boring and Ice Haven.
The poisonous touch of capitalism may not be new, and it certainly does not exist only within the comic pages, but it is disappointing to see that the commitment to maximising profits at the expense of creative contribution continues.
Comic books, conversely, are a hybrid form that combines the use of extensive dialogue and well-developed plots characteristic of written literature with the visuals of graphic arts.
I write and draw “comics” in an attempt to figure out who I am and what purpose there may be to my existence.
Being in comics long enough allows you special insight into large, dysfunctional groups of people, which is handy when you’re living in a hospital.
Comic artists have been devalued to the point where you could argue public perception is of them as almost secondary creators, and certainly fungible ones in the comic creation mix.
