Quotes

  • "My advice to authors would be to try to do something original rather than to try to anticipate what the market is looking for."
  • "I take comedy very seriously, and I feel very competitive."
  • "Luckily for me, my father had impeccable taste. No contemporary collector was he. His treasure trove of comics included gems such as 'Little Lulu,' 'Frontline Combat' and 'Classics Illustrated.' But the works that stood head and shoulders above the rest were Carl Barks's 'Donald Duck' and 'Uncle Scrooge' comics from the 1940s through the 1960s."
  • "I don't think of cartoons or comics as being for kids."
