COMICS are for KIDS

COMICS are for KIDS

Question: peterahernandez asked: What do you think about the way some people view comics, some people tell me it's childish no matter what I tell them I just wanted your view on this ANSWER: I’ve been told comics are for kids countless times my whole life. I assume all comic reading Americans have heard the same. All you can do is blow it off. Can’t convince anyone by telling them “is not, they are for everyone!” They won’t believe you. I gave bloody gore drenched Invincible trade paperbacks to someone because they said they really wanted to see my work. They said “Cool, I’ll give it to my kids!R

Invincible is coming to a close

Invincible is coming to a close

  For those that haven't heard the news. The comic book that I've been doing art duties on for the last 13 years, Invincible, written by Robert Kirkman, is coming to an end. There are many reasons for this, but for me, it started last year when I told Robert I'd like to move on to other projects, I felt it was time to do other things. Robert said he also has been thinking about ending the book, so he asked that I stay on to finish the run. I told him I needed a break and so Cory Walker, the original series artist said he'd step in to help out, he is currently doing a 6 issue run, then I'll be back on for the remaining 12 issues starting in Fe

So I asked Robert Kirkman to interview me...

So I asked Robert Kirkman to interview me...

CBR wanted to talk to me about my new mini-series coming out next month called GRIZZLYSHARK, and I thought to myself "I've been interviewed by many comic news website guys, who are great, but what if I asked my long time co-worker and friend Robert Kirkman to interview me?!" I thought that'd be something new and he's already read everything GRIZZLYSHARK and knows me pretty damn well so it'd make for an interesting read. He's a busy guy so I thought he'd probably say no but also knew it wouldn't hurt at all to ask. So I asked. And it was one of the more fun interviews I've done!
