“I think the average artsy kid needs to be a little wise in picking his battles, his targets, and his battlefield. One of the advantages of doing this through comics is that no one pays attention to them. Publishers are small, the direct market is almost invisible to the mainstream population, and you can get stuff into print and onto shelves quick relatively cheaply. Running out into the streets flyposting and tagging walls is a fun release, but no one will really pay attention to that, at least now in any kind of way you would want them to. Sneaking in under the radar, with a zine or a comic or whatever it is and building up from there one reader at a time is an effective and easy way to get your ideas out there.” Brian Wood
