Eddie Campbell QUOTES / QUOTATIONS
All that political stuff Delano was doing. Me, I've gone off the top, into total fantasy.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
And when you look at the Turtle's movie there is something there, definitely something there.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
Because Taboo was supposed to be a quarterly magazine and it came out once a year.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
By March '87 we're down to seven thousand, by the end of the year we're down to twelve hundred. The whole bottom just fell out of the market. It was bad for me because I was in Australia at the time.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
Dave Sim said in his latest thing of his, 'when you're on the right track, you'll know it, but until you get there, you have to believe you're on the right track'. Interesting little conundrum. It's not easy.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
He cites the history of man and woman from a feminist viewpoint, but he puts it in the mouth of someone who wants to usurp that, who wants to re-establish the old order, which is an interesting trick.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
He would still see it as his duty to shut up and get on with it, not cause any trouble. In our own time we've made a hero of the rebel, and it's more heroic to speak up.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I came in on the decline. Phil Elliot was in first, he got his book out, he sold thirteen thousand, I think he got two issues out before I got mine in, this was March '87. He was out in December '86.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I can't really be myself on Hellblazer. I was asking Neil Gaiman before I got on to it and I said I don't think I can do it.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I did a synopsis and everybody was happy with it, but when I came to do the script they got it in and they weighed it and there was only two ounces of nastiness.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I don't think I'm entirely in tune with the Vertigo house style at this juncture, but I'm thinking about it.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I don't want to write, I'd rather draw.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I just wrote, about a year ago, this bloody superhero thing for Dark Horse... The biggest disaster of my scrawny career so far.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I love doing these paintings. But every time I'm in demand to do something they phone me up and want me to write.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I remember having an argument with Alan, I said the Queen's not just going to call the guy up and send him out to do it. And Alan says, well, how would a monarch give orders to her assassin.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I think in the corridors of power these dangerous kinds of orders are issued in a much more vague way, passed down two or three levels of command before they're given to the assassin.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I think the actual pecking order is such that the person in power doesn't give the order to go and kill this guy.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I thought about this, I thought these people are ringing me about horror. I don't think I like horror, I don't think I'm interested in horror.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I thought, well I can do that. I couldn't be bothered writing a book review, because I'd have to read the book, I haven't got time to read a whole book for a fifty dollar write-up.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I used to write a column in there, called Genius, And How It Got That Way, they had asked me to write a column on the great comics in history.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I would have thought it'd be a lot more complicated than that. Victorian sense of duty is a powerful motivating factor.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I wrote five issues of that and got the sack. Actually, they paid me for eight, but they changed their minds about the direction and threw three issues out the window.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I'd be interested to read Gull's paper on it, and I wish Alan would put it in somewhere. It gives him a relevance to our times, which he doesn't otherwise have. Gull, I mean, not Alan.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I'm currently just working on the new chapter which is fifty pages of Gull cutting up Marie Kelly.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I'm happy with it, the four issues I've done - or at least I'm writing the third one now.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I'm just drawing it now. It's totally revolting. I'm sure you'll love it.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I'm not saying that if there is something horrible in the world we shouldn't draw attention to it hide my head under the carpet like a big ostrich.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I'm thinking to myself, I just love doing the art, it takes me a morning to do.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I've got this Encyclopedia published in the 1930s, it's useful to me because it's got all these English gentlemen who are now totally forgotten, and pictures of them, very useful, but Gull's not in there.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
I've just spent three pictures of someone hitching up his trousers before crouching down. It just takes more and more pictures.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
In his head he's very organised, in his day to day life it's a total disaster area. Well, to an organised guy like me. I have to do two pages of book-keeping to go round the corner for a newspaper. Seriously.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
In the meantime since '84 I'd been in the rock magazine Sounds every week for two years. It was a comic strip, going right across the tabloid page.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
In the old days a guy could scratch his bum in one picture, and under the new regime it takes five pictures to scratch your bum.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
It was in the eighties. I've sent all the bloody notes to Alan. But his special interest was treating women's problems with hysteria.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
It was taking so long to get it just so that they got Jamie Delano to do a fill-in issue, which is appearing as number 84, and I'm doing 85 to 88.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
It's business, selling comics, you work out what sells and you don't want to muck about with it too much.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
It's not the last one. Five's out, six is coming out in November, that's a single chapter, and then seven is the big horrifying one. And I think a couple after that to wrap the thing up.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
It's the whole Taboo thing, there was no point getting too far ahead, because Taboo could only pay us up to a certain point. But now we're striding forward - you saw the last one issue of From Hell?
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
None of the archaeological digs had been properly written up at that time, they had happened, but they hadn't been properly analysed and published.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
Part of the problem I think is that neither Alan or myself can get entirely into that Victorian mindset, to use a modern word.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
So all the time I'm drawing Gull I was thinking he was sort of this forgotten character, I can't even find him in my encyclopedia here.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
The new one is a lightweight, humorous thing. But we worked hard on it. It was a lot of fun - all five pages of it.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
The point behind From Hell is, I think, a feminist point. It's all about the horror inflicted by a patriarchal system, that's Alan Moore's basic theme.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
There are a couple of things in there if we're constraining this discussion to horror here.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
There's another story in there I'm happy with, The Testament of the Angel Seamus. Those are the things I'm happy with.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
They asked me to write it and zoomed me over there to do it. But they ended up sacking me.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
They're about real life, these books, both like novel length things. There's another book I did last year, A Thousand and One Nights of Bacchus.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
They're seemed to be some perception when I came on that I was bringing it down to earth a bit more, but I've done totally the opposite.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
They've got this house style which is writer driven. I heard of one person who sent his script in, and Karen Berger said there weren't enough words in it. Put some more in.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
To me it just didn't ring true the idea of Queen Victoria calling Gull in and saying go and get rid of these women. That was the bone of contention.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
To me it's still horror, and I don't actually like horror. I mean the 'horror story' as manipulative entertainment.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
We could hang around for ten years and nobody would care enough to identify us. Therein lies the horror.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
We were just publishing them ourselves, the whole black and white boom thing was just a license to print money, you could print any old rubbish and it'd sell.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
What was the Shakespeare thing? Will no-one rid me of this meddling priest? So the guy within earshot does it, goes out and kills the guy.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
When Alan is totally intent on an idea - and Alan lives and writes in the realm of ideas - he seems to be oblivious to the nuts and bolts.
Quotation of Eddie Campbell
You had to make an appointment to see her. But it was just a crazy spectacle, people filing past.
