  • I've always used my work to examine what is currently going on in my own life. It's cheaper than going to a shrink. "The Death of Captain Marvel" was a great way of working through my own father's death. When I finished with Captain Marvel I had turned him from a warrior into a mystic. Adam Warlock was a mystical messiah - where to go from there? Decided to reverse course and turn him into a suicidal paranoid/schizophrenic, which was the way I was feeling at the time.

It's a love for what this medium is.

  • As big as an elephant is, a whale is still larger. Everything's relative. Even gods have their spot on the food chain.
