Quote of the Day | Robert Kirkman on the price of success

“That’s the kind of thing that happens when things get as big as this is. There has been turmoil on the show and in the comic and a lot of crazy behind-the-scenes stuff, but at the end of the day, I’m not going to lie to you – it’s all worth it. It’s fun to have a successful comic and a successful show. Having a show as big as The Walking Dead that really is drawing attention on the comics industry as a whole and is definitely bringing new readers into stores … You know, the comics industry is very near and dear to my heart, and so, because this thing has grown into this giant machine that does seem to be serving a lot of purposes and doing a lot of good for a lot of people, if I have to deal with a couple of headaches from time to time, I think it’s completely worth it. It is a double-edged sword, but swords are pretty nice.”
