“It’s true that for a field to evolve, it has to be a collective change that pulls the whole system along with it — readers, artists, publishers, distributors, printers, retailers. On the other hand, oddly enough, it must go through a single person. It has to be an individual who takes the risk. It can be a publisher, it can be an artist, it can be a distributor.”
— Jean “Moebius” Giraud, saying something in 1987 that I think beautifully illustrates what’s currently starting to happen in the American comics industry, from The Comics Journal #118.
