I brought samples in, because I didn't have any comic book samples, and I brought all these illustrations that I had influenced by Norman Rockwell and a couple of the other big boys. That's all I had, that's all I brought.
I really can't pinpoint the one moment when I said I want to be a comic.
'American Psycho' is violent. 'Apocalypse Now' is violent. 'Officer Downe' is a comic and not violent to me.
As psychotic as it gets outside, the comic can be more psychotic.
To my ear, the term 'comic novelist' is as redundant and off-putting as the term 'literary novelist'.
I like things that are sort of comic and humorous rather than satirical.
Describing comic sensibility is near impossible. It's sort of an abstract silliness, that sometimes the joke isn't the star.
Serial fiction is a conceit of comic books and soap operas. As one goes, so goes the other in terms of public consciousness.
I was into Spider Man when I was a kid and that was the only comic I've ever read.
To be honest, I wasn't the best stand-up comic.
I'm not a joke guy; I'm not a stand-up comic.
As a stand-up comic, you have to do the road.
When 'Watchmen' was published in 1986, the vast majority of comics readers deemed it a watershed in comics history. The 12-part serial comic book was widely acclaimed as a genius subversion of the superhero genre, and it did much to popularize comics to adults.
I read pretty much every 'Venom' comic that exists.
Part of being a comic is being flexible, being versatile.
