Quotes of the Week: A very twisted way of thinking

I don’t view Eric Powell as a competitor or Mike Mignola or Terry Moore. I don’t have to take from someone else to gain something. That’s a very twisted way of thinking in my book. We’re all fighting the same fight. Sure, we’re all going for a slice of the same pie, but believe me, there’s plenty for everybody, and if we work together we can actually make the pie bigger again, like it used to be.
Steve Niles

[Books are] very old, cats and kittens, but before we had them we had scrolls and before that we had tablets and before that we had oral traditions. The codex—a book with a cover and pages—hasn’t been around forever and it won’t be around forever, and the sooner publishers, booksellers, and other industry insiders realize this and not only accommodate but embrace the changes that are revolutionizing the way people read, the better.
Eric Blank

The multiplex audience…seems to lay down money for the right to sit in front of the movie and do whatever they want. That’s different [from the art-house theater crowd], and I don’t like it as much. It’s colder. I don’t think it’s that the people are any better or any worse; I think it has to do with how much they love being at the movies. And for me to love being at the movies, I have to be with other people who love being there, too.

  1. It was the thing about DC's needing a Silver Age Earth. I've been reading a lot of Silver Age Aquaman lately and have developed a love-hate relationship that I need to get out of my system.I was just joshin about the books. My real guess would be the one about enjoying movies.

  2. Try again! Recluse that I am, I hate the "movie experience"!So I guess I don't disagree with Niles that comics creators aren't competitors, but rather fellow artists.Love/hate Silver Age Aquaman, eh? Ok, I'll be interested to read that one.
