Quote of the day #2 | The ‘residue of shit’ on comics by celebrities

by  in Comic News Comment

“The comic book world is a tough business. If you’re a celebrity with a comic, it already has a residue of shit on it because so many shit celebrity slash wrestler slash race-car driver slash who-gives-a-fuck books have already tainted the possible audience for it. This is not a get-rich-quick thing, it’s not a way to prolong my career – I would like the same fans that I respect in comics to like my books, and I know the only way to get there is to earn it, and the only way to earn it is to come up the same way everybody else does, as much as I can.”

Actor and now comic creator Shia LaBeouf, who attended this past weekend’s C2E2 to sell his self-published comics.
