There is no authority but yourself.— Rick Remender
The most bumbling Rick Remender quotes that will activate your desire to change
Nothing can compare to creating characters and worlds out of thin air with your friends and making a book exactly the way you think it should be made, pure creative freedom, purity of intention, with no boundaries.
It wasn't until I'd met everyone else's measure of success that I realized I'd failed myself.
Compromise is such an integral part of being a human being.
You're compromising in every decision you make.
To get through a war, a man needs something bigger than himself to fight for.
Dad was supportive, intelligent, read to me as a kid, left me a trillion dollars. It's hard to complain.
Final Execution is Wolverine's spotlight arc.
He goes through a crazy thing here. I think the fear with him is that he's in so many books that his growth can become stagnant. He ends this story in a very different place.

The seeds for the Descendants were planted in Uncanny X-Force, but I always conceived them as being bigger than just that book.

I do my very best to not allow external trends or zeitgeists to feed into what I'm producing.
I think the biggest mistake you can make in creator owned work is having info-dumps like, "Here's how this world works!" it's just like someone playing dungeon master and boring me with the backstory of their fucking world. Just bring me into you story and get it cooking.

Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie's The Wicked + The Divine is a warp into the middle of a wildly imaginative mythology and I'm itching to read more.
I can take strange detours and linger in places and do things that have no budgetary restraints.

I enjoy nothing more than creating new series and watching them grow in front of me month by month. It's a muscle I spent many years developing and it feels good to be using it again.
We are all so immersed in our own technology bubbles that we're ignoring so many important things. We're all online arguing over nuance and nonsense, and everybody's so incensed and upset about things that ultimately mean nothing while we are destroying our environment. While we're racing towards Armageddon, we're all online arguing about what Beyonce said at some award.
A lot of the time you just have to follow your creative muse and do what you think is best for the story.
I think that people who don't mind reading find the immersion and their ability to get into a deeper place with the story to be satisfying. That's the kind of reader I want.
