I get a little miffed when people make claims like, "No, I didn’t read comics as a kid."  
But then he goes on to admit, "There was a lot of 80’s indie comics that I really liked. Love and Rockets, Mr. X, I was a huge fan of Eddy Current by Ted McKeever… … Oh! Guy Davis’ Baker Street! ... I like the old school adventure strip art like Alex Raymond, Milt Caniff, Frank Robbins, and stuff like that. "  
So okay, maybe he wasn't a Batman fan, but he WAS reading comics.  


I also liked his shout-out to the Joe Johnston Star Wars Sketchbook.  That was indeed a great book, that I know I spent countless hours poring over, and I'm glad to hear that somebody else liked it and was influenced by it too.


So overall, good interview, despite my gripes.  He is a good artist, and I hope he continues to do good work.

I hate that too. But, this one didn't strike me that way, I read more that he was just trying to say he didn't get into comics until he was older, and it was indy stuff at that. Maybe not, given the context.

But I agree there are lot of people who could find a less condescending way to say "I didn't read superhero comics as a kid," but for some of the people who phrase it that way, I imagine the disdain is part of the point they are trying to make.

I wondered what had happened to him. I was a big fan of his art but lost track.
