I mean, can you imagine that a big strapping, working-class lad like myself would write dialogue like that!? What really rankled me was that my name was on the script. People were going to believe that I wrote, “No words, Skizz. ” They’re gonna beat me up in the street. There’s no point to those little arbitrary changes at all. It would have worked perfectly well without the balloons. Garry: When I was doing a Future Shock over at IPC, at that time they were doing minimal dialogue with large pictures—lots of action everywhere and very little to read.
I don’t know, perhaps it depends on the writer or the artist. It’s stupid, but there is a personality thing in comics ’cos it’s such a small ﬁeld, it’s ridiculous. I’m not gonna get recognized in Tesco’s. You can be a minor celebrity at conventions, which is nice, but it’s such a small ﬁeld that there is this status thing whereby some people don’t get messed around with because they’ve got big names, or whatever—or perhaps just long names like John Tartaglione. [Laughter] Hellﬁre: It would appear that not only do you write the stories for yourself, but you get very involved with what happens to these characters .
People who are so good—there aren’t very many of them. You don’t meet them, and they’re not very interesting when you do. You have to go into your work very intensely. This is a shaming sort of admission, and I hope you won’t laugh ’cos it’d hurt, but when I’m writing some of the V stories sometimes, and it’s really tragic, I’m sitting there—a grown man—and there’s tears rolling down my face. I’ve got myself into the position where I’m incredibly uptight, and that’s terribly neurotic. If people saw me, I’d be slapped away.
