The other thing is this industry has decided it only has one market. Unlike any other industry in the world, unlike film or books or sports even, this industry has decided it has only one market and that’s 14 year old boys.
That and the fact that I knew that nobody was going to publish my work at Dark Horse or DC or anywhere.
