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.
And when you look at the Turtle's movie there is something there, definitely something there.
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.
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.

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.
All that political stuff Delano was doing. Me, I've gone off the top, into total fantasy.
I don't want to write, I'd rather draw.
I'm just drawing it now. It's totally revolting. I'm sure you'll love it.
They asked me to write it and zoomed me over there to do it. But they ended up sacking me.
We could hang around for ten years and nobody would care enough to identify us. Therein lies the horror.
