"Mr. McCloud, how do I break into the comics business?"

Scott's How-To Guide
"Voila!" I tell 'em. "You're in the business!"

This really pisses 'em off, but I think it's an important reference point.
The quote and scan above are from Scott McCloud's Reinventing Comics, which I happened to find at the local library. Excellent read, and like Lynda Barry's One Hundred Demons and R.Crumb before them, I find an exhortation to create my own comics. Even if it is just a teeny little one. Maybe now that I've got some graphics programns besides MS Paint I can finally take a stab at that Hawkman/Mitochondria idea.
