Issue #1 page 9

When you’re writing comics about someone you sincerely hate, it’s tempting to include insults and character judgments you would never otherwise say aloud. There’s a separation between the written word and reality where the authority of being the ‘storyteller’ gives the writer a useful excuse of plausible deniability when it comes to portraying an actual person as, basically, a box of dongs who can’t draw at all and holds a pencil like a crab trying to figure out how to use chopsticks.

This is unrelated to the comic, just sort of a fancy idea I had.
