“For me, the story isn’t something I’m entirely in control of, like an all-knowing, all-powerful God. Instead, it’s a landscape I create in which to explore and play with people, ideas and themes. I don’t always know where I’m going to end up or what I’m going to learn along the way; but if the landscape is an interesting enough one, then it’ll be worth the effort.”

Dylan Horrocks, in interview, Abracadabra

*Addendum: Speaking of interviews with great cartoonists, the new issue of The Comics Journal has a long interview with Craig Thompson, creator of Goodbye Chunky Rice and Blankets. The magazine has posted online some snippets that were left on the cutting-room floor. Enjoy, and have a good weekend.
