Sample text

Garry: It’s horrible, because basically the artist is like the director of photography of a film, and if you’ve got someone who’s inept, incompetent, and doesn’t know about basic emotions, then the comic is ridiculous. 12 alan moore: conversations Alan: If the artist has just got a plot that says, “Daredevil talks to so-and-so on this page and at the end, so-and-so will come in,” then from that, the artist won’t know what expression to put on the mouth. So if he draws a chap grinning, and then Chris Claremont comes along and gives a huge balloon to it saying, “My wife and family have just died .
