And last, it may be worthwhile trying to hang something beyond the partial wall because some of the pictures do very well in a confined space.
Space and time, not proteins and neurons, hold the answer to the problem of consciousness. When we consider the nerve impulses entering the brain, we realize that they are not woven together automatically, any more than the information is inside a computer.
It is strange, but nobody is shocked when pop singers make a fortune in the space of two years.

I would hate to think I'm promoting sadness as an aesthetic. But I grew up in not just a family but a town and a culture where sadness is something you're taught to feel shame about. You end up chronically desiring what can be a very sentimental idea of love and connection. A lot of my work has been about trying to make a space for sadness.
Comics have a problem, and that is continuity - the obsession with placing the characters in an existing world, where every event is marked in canon.
