Quote of the Day

"People love superheroes. We live in a world where we've been told that the ice caps are going to melt and the pedophiles are going to get your kids. Everything's hell - if the [terrorists] don't get us, something else will get us. Comics are the one place that remains with this kind of utopian, hopeful, positive view of human evolution of where we might end up. I think that it's beautiful. We need people like us to keep saying, 'No, what if we become super-good? What if we go for the future? What if we stop pandering to the worst aspects of the human nature and start leaning toward the best aspects of human nature?' That's what comics represent."

-Grant Morrison, Wizard Magazine 216, October '09
