The blank page

More than half the time I sit down to make comix, I find it hard to justify my dedication to a difficult career choice. The business of comix can be crippling, a tough racket to crack. I grumble and think about all the things I've missed and the things I'm going to miss just because a story is daring me to make pictures out of words. I knuckle up and fight a storytelling solution that almost has me down for the count, spitting in my eye as I roll in the dirt until I gasp, reach for the stars, and punch its lights out. When the dust settles I stare at something that means something. Only then am I reminded of why I love comix so damned much.
