“The truth is, the bit of the conversation that I remember… the one place where things got magic for me, was asking Will why he kept doing it," Gaiman recalled of asking why Eisner was still producing work at an age when all his peers had either retired or passed on. Eisner told him of a Kirk Douglas film, where he plays a trumpet player looking for the perfect note — a note that when he finally found and blown, he could finally hang up his trumpet.
“And he described his entire career as being in search of the note. He knew he could hear this thing somewhere up ahead, and we were always convinced that the next project, he would finally attain it. He would hear the note. He would play the note, and he wouldn’t need to do anything after that,” said Gaiman. “I took that away, and still treasure that. When I think of Will, I think of him still questing for the note.”
— Neil Gaiman, in conversation about Will Eisner

My time at RISD’s pre-college program was really great; I met some really amazing people and worked the hardest I have ever worked. Also, after being too busy to draw comics for six weeks, I’ve spent the last few days just tearing through pages. Feels good.

Thank you. I am glad someone hated it enough so you could find it. The next book will out be fairly soon. This is so weird. Whoa.

chasingcomics said: Damn dude! You have so much great ink work on here and you keep pumping it out. Let me know if you ever put out a zine.
Thanks for the kind words. I should be putting out an 180 or so page graphic novel in early September, so look out for that.
