Strange Adventures #75, December 1956, cover by Gil Kane and Bernard Sachs
Sometimes, people ask me why I like comics books.
This is a cover
of a gorilla,
robbing a librarian,
at gunpoint,
for Moby Dick, Robinson Crusoe, and Treasure Island,
for the purposes of conquering the world.
What’s not to love?

"Read, read, read. Read everything–trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the most. Read! You’ll absorb it. Then write. If it is good, you’ll find out. If it’s not, throw it out the window."
