When I come up against the real world, I just vacillate.
Everything that is strong in me has gone into my art work.
I guess I didn't enjoy drawing very much. It was like homework.
Most of my adult life I had this towering contempt for America.
The only burning passion I'm sure I have, is the passion for sex.
I have always had an abiding interest in that type of female anatomy.
I felt so painfully isolated that I vowed I would get revenge on the world by becoming a famous cartoonist.
When people say 'What are underground comics?' I think the best way you can define them is just the absolute freedom involved... we didn't have anyone standing over us.
Oh, yes. I knew I was weird by the time I was four. I knew I wasn't like other boys. I knew I was more fearful. I didn't like the rough and tumble most boys were into. I knew I was a sissy.
Killing yourself is a major commitment, it takes a kind of courage. Most people just lead lives of cowardly desperation. It's kinda half suicide where you just dull yourself with substances.
