quote by Alan Moore

...My point is, I went crazy. When I saw what a black, awful joke the world was. I went crazy as a coot! I admit it! Why can't you?

Unbelievable Dc Comics quotations

Madness is the emergency exit. You can just step outside, and close the door on all those dreadful things that happened. Forever.

All it takes is one bad day to reduce the sanest man alive to lunacy.

That's how far the world is from where I am. Just one bad day.

I'd begun reading Crumb shortly before that, and other underground stuff, so that was an influence to some degree. Of course the Marvel and DC comics, they had been my main interests in my teenage years.

I was cast in 'Thor' back in 2009, so it sort of took me out of the running for anything tied to DC Comics.

I grew up on DC Comics, moral tales where the bad guys got their comeuppance.

To me the gory panels or grotesque stuff just made me chuckle.

Ladies. Gentlemen. You have eaten well. You've eaten Gotham's wealth. Its spirit. Your feast is nearly over. From this moment on...none of you are safe.

The comics I read as a kid were all about guys in tights.

But here was a guy who wore a fedora. He fought crime like they did in Marvel and DC, but he did it in the real world. I had just turned 12 when I met the Spirit and it was a strange coincidence. At the same time I discovered girls I fell out of love with guys in tights.

When I was a kid, I read many more Marvel comics than I did DC.

As I got older, in high school and then in college, I started reading more DC.

It's all a joke! Everything anybody ever valued or struggled for.

.. it's all a monstrous, demented gag! So why can't you see the funny side? Why aren't you laughing?

When I got out of college I worked for DC comics.

I worked on staff there and I also freelanced for them for about a decade. I spent two years on staff as an editor right out of college. I'm from Los Angeles and I came back here after a couple of years in New York, to go to Graduate School at USC. I wasn't thinking specifically about animation although while I'd worked at DC.

All our songs are about real people, true events.

We do write about DC Comics and things like The Replacements. It's pretty much good conversations that happen at Art Brut shows. It's like making friends - like a Wanted ad: "Man that likes the Replacements and DC Comics wants friends to drink with at venue tonight. Who's coming?" It's like that.

I've been using easy-to-understand DC Comics-surrogates to describe him: imagine if Darkseid's son, Orion, joined the Green Lantern Corps to train them to stop Darkseid. That's essentially what Victory is doing in the Galactic Rangers.

As far as comic books are concerned, I was always a Marvel guy for the most part, although I did follow DC a little. I don't know, honestly I'd just like to play whatever role [that] not just the studio, but the fans think I fit the best into. Because I think, especially in worlds like that, you've really got to do right by the fan base and stay in tune with what they are looking for and what they desire. I would just want to do right by them.

When I first got the audition for Shado, I went online and subscribed to DC Comics and read a bunch on Shado and the Yakuza, just to get to know her character better.

I did get a nice compliment from Ramona Fradon a few years ago.

She was talking about the one and only Plastic Man comic that I inked for her for DC and she said it was the only time that she'd ever had anyone ink her. Everyone else put in their own personality and changed it. In fact, bless her heart, she said if she were still doing Brenda Starr, she'd have me ink it.

I will say that I'm proud of my connection to DC comics because they are absolutely fabulous in sending reprint royalty checks.

My mother wouldn't even let me read DC Comics.

All the other editors at DC never gave me a moment's time.

They would take the thing and give me a check and say, 'I'll see you in two weeks.' They never gave any kind of encouragement or information. They were very competitive with each other. They didn't want to teach an artist and then lose him to some other editor.

I'm a huge comic book collector. When I was a kid, I had both Marvel and DC. I was my own librarian. I made card files. I had origin stories of all the characters, and cross-referenced when they appeared in other comic books. I was full on.

I have always loved horror very much.

I used to write stories for DC's House of Mystery. It was one of my first jobs writing for comics, and I loved it.

I wasn't terribly aware of Catwoman. She was a DC comics character and as a kid, I wasn't terribly fond of the DC comics characters. I was a Marvel boy.

That pompous phrase (graphic novel) was thought up by some idiot in the marketing department of DC. I prefer to call them Big Expensive Comics.
