  1. "My point is, people being disabled is part of the real world, it is essential it be part of the fictional world as well. Especially if DC is dedicated to a diverse universe. And I don’t mean, “You have to keep Oracle around because I’M in a wheelchair,” I mean for everyone. Are there people of every race, religion and sex in the world? Yes, so let your comics reflect that as well as many other diverse subsets there are out there."
  3. "If they’ve seen any creative improvement, any artist will tell you their old work looks like garbage. The characters don’t look pleasing to me at all until early 2009 or so. I think my writing used to be punchier, but the stories were flatter. The characters used to use more witty quips; now I try to write them more naturally. I started the comic in my early 20s and I’ve changed pretty rapidly; I see it happening to the characters as well. Their motivations change, they learn (or fail to learn) from mistakes, they’re self-conscious about different things. They’re all a little more cynical about love."

  4. "I read this fantastic article written by a woman who was married to a cartoonist, offering advice to anyone romantically involved with a cartoonist. She said something along the lines of “if he’s staring out the window for five hours doing nothing, he is working.” That line is the only reason I can justify all the seemingly useless hours I spend in front of a blank notebook."
