  • JMS Quote spotted in Obit for Will Eisner

    I noticed this in the NYTimes obituary for the fabulous Will Eisner:

    A mark of Mr. Eisner's influence is that one of the most prestigious awards in the comics business, the Eisner, was named for him and was presented by him. Mr. Eisner's biographer, Mr. Andelman, noted that when Mr. Eisner handed out the award for best serialized story of 2002, one of the recipients, the writer J. Michael Straczynski, "thrust the award in the air and remarked: 'You know, you get the Emmy, you don't get it from Emmy. You win the Oscar, you don't get it from Oscar. How freakin' cool is this?' "
    This is a classic JMS sort of thing to say. I can imagine he was just beaming!

    No matter where you go, you're only halfway there...
