SK8! Page Twenty-Four!

I just love panel two. It should have been larger, but you can lose something when you're focusing on telling the story...

Matt sez:
"Fans always ask, “Where do you get your ideas?” An odd question because getting ideas is easy, it’s getting RID of ideas that’s hard. On SK8, concepts flowed like pee on St. Patty’s Day. Perhaps that was the books greatest flaw, we tried to do too much. But when you look back at great moments of comic creators; Miller Daredevil, Byrne Fantastic Four, Claremont/Simonson X-Men, Lobdell Generation-X, Stan Lee everything, etc., the one thing they all have in common is a tidal wave of ideas. New characters, new places, new situations, in every single issue. The bad news for those guys is that they all burned out from burning the candle at both ends. The good news for the rest of us is their genius still remains. So shoot for the moon, would be creators, there’s no disgrace in failure, only in failure to try."

Yoda sez:
"There is no try, there is only do."
