If there's anything I'm proud of in my work - it's not
that I draw better; there's so many better graphic artists than me - or
that I write better, no. It's - and I'm not saying I know the truth,
because what the hell is that? But what I got from Ruth and Dave, a kind
of fierce honesty, to not let the kid down, to not let the kid get
punished, to not suffer the child to be dealt with in a boring,
simpering, crushing-of-the-spirit kind of way.
