COMICS

 
 

"…comic book artists and people who deal in comic books all feel like outsiders, they're never given respect. There's an amazing skill involved in making a good comic book. The artwork in comics is brilliant, some of the writing is brilliant - comic books is a really great art form, but it's not considered art. Not literature. It's this amazing bastard thing hanging out there. And they complain, but I keep saying, "No, you're lucky that haven't been accepted - keep being angry and outside and doing stuff. Because if you become a Keith Haring or a Basquiat or any of these people who get drawn into the Establishment, they die, they just freeze up." Terry Gilliam (Animator and film director)
