i uploaded a couple of images this week to post in a discussion on the Comics Journal forum in response to a plea for me to stop being so pathologically touchy about the endless pointless arguments over the naming of our medium. I said it's fine to say that when you don't have to suffer some of these stupid interviews where the whole purpose seems to be to make me feel foolish. Having gone to the trouble I'll post them here too. These happen at least a couple of times every year; they are a total waste of my time.


This one took forty minutes and they took a bunch of photos. Then it all got thrown out and the journalist salvaged this bit for her gossip column:


The wife of my bosom asked what 'hauteur' means. I said it's a French word that means I'm full of myself. She said, 'well at least they got that part right.'

I still get pissed off with bookstores (and Libraries) that stock the "graphic" novels apart from the other novels. I understand that this was the reason why the Minx line didn't sell, despite DC campaigning to have them shelved with the other Young Adult titles.

That's a Honeybee!

Opened up freebie blokes mag this morning, 'Shortlist'. GRAPHIC NOVELS FOR GROWN-UPS. Ahh, fuggem. Speaking of grown-ups...Bizarre conversation overheard in comic shop by yours truly:

"Daaaad, I want Batman!"
"You can't have Batman, it's for grown-ups."
"I WANT BATMAN!"
"No! Here, look at this Wall-E book."
"NO! I WANT BATMAN!"
"RIGHT. IF THAT'S THE WAY YOU'RE GOING TO BEHAVE, WE'RE GOING HOME."

In fairness, Batman did have naked ladies with their swastika'd norks hanging out.
