"As soon as I started getting an allowance, it was for comics. I would just go [to the store]. I didn't really have a concept of new comic day, I just thought they showed up at any given random time at Golden Apple in LA. I would just show up and was like, 'Ooh, WildC.A.T.S.!' It was all that -- WildC.A.T.S., Spawn, Cyberforce. I got into it too late to even know that these creators worked on Spider-Man and the X-Men. I just knew that they created the friggin' Violator. It was huge for me. It got me into comics, straight-up. I think I liked those comics more than I liked X-Men. I just remember being at my friend's house and he was like, 'You gotta read this Spawn,' and I loved it."
