COMIC RIFFS CELEBRATES: 60 Telling Quotes About Comics and Cartooning

“The fact of the matter is, comic books proper — whether in print or digital — is still a niche story art form and will never be able to compete with the Hollywood industry, The filet mignon I enjoyed at the Governor’s Ball in Los Angeles to celebrate the Emmy win … doesn’t mean I can stop working until midnight six days a week and stop eating peanut butter sandwiches at my art table for dinner. I do what I love and that’s almost why the pay is allowed to be so damned lousy but I have no fantasy that my work will get me on Easy Street and that’s okay.”
– Cartoonist DEAN HASPIEL, on life after winning an Emmy for the opening sequence of HBO’s “Bored to Death”
