“With Antihero, the stuff we did wasn’t about controversy. It was more like making people laugh, but sort of a sick laugh. Sort of a thoughtful, bummer of a laugh, you know? Like the K9 dog biting off the cop’s face. The dog is sick of being told what to do by the cop, so he rebels. There’s a little story to it.
It wasn’t a firecracker up a cat’s butt. That’s just sick. It was confrontational but there was a smart story to it. I like to tell a deeper story. I like to think that the stuff we did with Antihero wasn’t easy. Maybe it was one step too far, but it’s never the easy step too far. It gotta push the envelope but in a way that’s intelligent, I guess?”
Why this quote, you may ask? And why is it illustrated by a studious Sean Cliver doing his homework, right above? The answer shall reveal sometime next week… Any guesses, perhaps?
