On Creating Comics
"The medium of comics is one that I think is vastly un-tapped. For many reasons, comics have always been synonymous with super-heroes and I think that's one of the problems. Superheroes are a genre, they shouldn't be defining comics. I think comics can and should be all things...histories, biographies, educational, mysteries. science fiction...ALL genres and ALL styles. A lot of people say they won't read comics. I think that they haven't seen the right comics. I understand that by expanding the potential of comics into different genres and approaches, it will restrict the appeal of comics to any one group but that's to be expected. Most of the work I've done in the past reflects my interest in different areas and I've been fortunate to have artists that were willing to take that journey."
