At this very moment I'm behind on a compilation that Slave Labor is doing for Free Comic Book Day.
Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
Because of the audience I get and the fact that these people aren't traditional comics buyers I don't think the comic industry looks at that and thinks that is a very respectable thing. I'm very used to it. I'm not the guy who wins awards and gets mentioned in magazines.

Goth culture, as mired in the past as it is, even it goes through changes, so Goth when I was growing up is not what it is now. When I think of Goth culture as it is at the moment I think of mall culture.

I could go through a lot of my old emails from when I first started doing comics. Back then the lowest age of fans was like 15 or 16 up to people in their 20's and 30's.
Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
I don't feel at all slighted because the show was cancelled because I look at some of the shows that are doing incredibly well and I'm not jealous. I don't want to do that. I wouldn't give up having made my hideous little show to still be producing something that doesn't thrill me.
Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
I don't particularly dislike any kind of person that might be reading my stuff. They like it and that's cool, but I don't do the work for any kind of group in particular, except for hobos, who just plain kick ass and light up my life.

Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
I got to draw monsters, robots and write funny stories. I loved doing that stuff and working with the actors. But it got to be less and less that stuff and more about trying to be everywhere and not being able to do one thing very enjoyably.
Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
I love the show and a lot of what came out of it, like some of the people I met and got to work with, but those were truly some of the unhappiest days of my life.

I think there is something a little too self conscious about enjoying being an outsider.

I'm just doing little bits and pieces for other magazines right now.

Money is not happiness. Being able to pay your rent is happiness but a third season of being in hell would not have been worth it.
Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
Retro looking stuff but a lot of these guys doing these shows are my age or younger. I was just disgusted. I hated being around that kind of thing. Not that it affected what I did because when it comes down to it I was doing my own show.
Quotation of Jhonen Vasquez
Some robot who never made me laugh didn't think was funny or didn't think the audience would understand. I guess that's television.
