Neil Gaiman weighs in on the flap over adult-oriented comics in a Denver Library:
It’s been twenty years, and newspaper headlines still oscillate between “Wham! Bam ! Pow! Comics Have Grown Up!” and “OH MY GAAAD THIS COMIC NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN HAS CONTENT NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN IN IT!” articles. Bizarre.
(Ironically, the people complaining don’t seem to care much about the content—they just wanted to get the Spanish-language books off the shelves.)
Someone has to quote the Simpsons, “Won’t someone please think of the children?”
Writing our own fotonovelas was all that kept me sane in my second-year high school Spanish class.
