Sergio Aragones quotes

I live in a very small town and now that I've closed down my studio, I'm working at home.

The sad events that occur in my life are the sad events that happen to everybody, with losing friends and family, but that is a natural occurrence, as natural as being born.

For every issue, I send four pages of finished marginals and they select the ones they need.

Generally what I produce is new. Of course, they are often variations on the same subject.

The Boogeyman is your conscience. The Boogeyman is the result of your own bad behavior. I love this Boogeyman.

I have always loved horror very much. I used to write stories for DC's House of Mystery. It was one of my first jobs writing for comics, and I loved it.

My work is so unorthodox that from one panel to the next, the drawings are completely different... totally opposed to the way of working in something like animation, where every drawing has to look like the one before.

The reason I love comics more than anything else is that the longest story will be just a few pages. With a novel, it takes so many pages to get to one thing happening.

Comics is a great medium to get a lot of stories out.

Anyone can write a story based on the kind of horror where you see a guy in car and then there's the bad guy in the back seat. It's infantile to rely on that for telling a story. That's like going to bed and thinking there's a monster under your bed. It's silly.

At the end of the '60s, I was trying to enter the world of comics.

I keep very weird hours. I never know when I'm going to get an idea.

I think that true horror is accomplished by slowly getting into your brain. The old way is much more scary.

I'd love to do a whole series of stories and have them collected into books.

If the gag is complicated, you spend more time thinking about the way you're drawing it.

My best sources are my travels and my collection of National Geographic.

Once you've established where you are, you go to the character and elaborate on expressions and action.

Suspense is very important. Even though this is humor and they're short stories, that theory of building suspense is still there.

The Western, when I do one, will be one long, continuous story.

When sadness happens in the middle of work, I separate my personal grief from my train of thought.
