The no-secrets era of social media makes one consider the built-in risk factor of nominating high-testosterone men to positions of power at all. Everyone is under too much scrutiny now to take a chance on candidates who suddenly blow up into a comic meme, a punchline, a ribald hashtag.
I stole comic books from my brother when I was a kid, but I was never like an avid fan. I can't claim to be like a comic book geek.
As you get older you're told to be sensible, but it's important for writing if you're a comic that you're able to still access that childlike thing.

Walter Dean Myers

I'm such a horror geek, comic geek and action figure geek. I'm inspired by so much - from Hunter S. Thompson and Quentin Tarantino to 'The Dark Knight' and 'Halloween'. Just show me something that doesn't suck, and I'm happy.
