My wife is wonderful. She's one of the people who has changed my life around... or has allowed ME to change my life around.
On the whole, and this comment can get me in a lot of trouble, I find that retailers in the comic book business are not business people. They're fans who've gotten themselves shops.
The people that are running the bulk of the comic shops in North America aren't business people and they don't understand sales. They don't understand good product.
The violence in society, I'm afraid, is perpetrated by the people at the top.
If it came to saving the life of one priest or sacrificing the life of an entire congregation, the church would save the life of the priest. Which is backwards, of course.
Jesus gives his life for the congregation, not the other way around.
I mean, price is price. It's just where you want to spend your money.
It's wherever business rules, business is going to get the politicians they want because they control the money and money controls the power.
In the Second World War, they're talking about the Japanese traitors and putting them into concentration camps. But companies like DuPont had factories in Germany turning out stuff for the German Army.
Since the Gulf War, since the new World Order, America is now the number one arms dealer in the world.
If you like a story that's totally different and won't know which way it's going... where it's go ing to end up and which way it's going to take you, then I think my work fits the bill.
The only reality is our society, and I mean this seriously, Western Society is a very sick society.
If you'd rather go to the football game than read a comic, that's fine. I'd rather do both.
But basically, I'm trying to write a fun story.
I've done work for hire. I've worked for DC and Dark Horse.
