Favorite Comic Con Quotes

1. "I've never been to Comic-Con, but I'm certainly aware from this side of the Atlantic that it's a very important part of film marketing now, even when the films are not directly linked to a comic."
Author: Alex Garland
2. "Anyway, in the mid 80's I was spending a fortune buying old Golden Age books from the late 30's and 40's and I was making personal appearances at a lot of sci fi and comic book conventions all around the country here so that I could find books for my collection."
Author: Bill Mumy
3. "Oh my God, I'm so excited. I love Comic-Con, it feels like a weird nerd camp. All my nerd friends are there and all the comic book writers I know and then a lot of actors, too, and you hang out with these people for just a few days, but you hang out with them all day, every day. It's like camp - it's like a weird camp. I love it."
Author: Brea Grant
4. "In comics, there are depths that don't reveal themselves immediately, and the stuff that you might consider anal about 'Watching the Watchmen' - like the notes where I plot the rotation of a perfume bottle through the air - might not be particularly obvious to anyone who reads it."
Author: Dave Gibbons
5. "I get fans stopping me and telling me what a bad man I am. I got a lot of that at Comic-Con. I'd tell them, 'Sorry, mate.'"
Author: David Bradley
6. "When it's time to confess, you don't know what you're saying. Are you telling the truth, or do you confuse your lies with reality? The question is comical. The answer is lost in the maelstroms of consciousness. It's even impossible to pretend, eventually, that the question wasn't asked. You've been kidding yourself about yourself for so long, you're someone else. Your you is just a fragile fabrication. Every morning, you have to wake up, assemble this busy, dissembling monster, and get him or her on his or her feet again for another round of fantasy."
Author: David Guterson
7. "Hollywood raised us. Your mind processes the world through a filter formed by comic books and action movies on Cinemax. That's why kids put on trench coats and take guns to school. The Devil knows how to control us."
Author: David Wong
8. "Small Man can be a very funny or a very tiresome Tour Companion, depending on how this kind of thing grabs you. He gambles, he drinks too much and he always runs away. Since the Rules allow him to make Jokes, he will excuse his behaviour in a variety of comical ways. Physically he is stunted and not at all handsome, although he usually dresses flamboyantly. He tends to wear hats with feathers in. You will discover he is very vain. But, if you can avoid smacking him, you will come to tolerate if not love him. He will contrive, in some cowardly way, to play a major part in saving the world."
Author: Diana Wynne Jones
9. "As Stephen Krashen and Joanne Ujiie (2005) assert, "Many people are fearful that if children engage in ‘light reading,' if they read comics and magazines they will stay with this kind of reading forever, that they will never go on to more ‘serious' reading. The opposite appears to be the case. The evidence suggests that light reading provides the competence and motivation to continue reading and to read more demanding texts" (p. 6)."
Author: Donalyn Miller
10. "...Marshall alone his room with a comically tall stack of books, methodically absorbing their contents as though they were drugs..."
Author: Douglas Coupland
11. "If you're a comic, you don't have a rehearsal room, you rehearse on stage. My main concern is remembering everything."
Author: Dylan Moran
12. "Uneori îmi pare direct comic ca am putut sa scriu Schimbarea la fata; — nu ma mai intereseaza; în afara de poezie, metafizica si mistica nimic n-are nici o valoare. Orice participare la framîntari temporale e timp pierdut si risipire inutila. Lucrurile acestea le-am priceput prea tîrziu din pacate, dar ma consolez de a le fi priceput macar acum. Un om, daca vrea sa pastreze o demnitate spirituala oarecare, trebuie sa uite calitatea lui de contemporan. Ce departe eram acum de stiam acestea la 20 de ani."
Author: Emil Cioran
13. "Comic-Con was crazy, good crazy... Five minutes after I'm done, the cast of 'Twilight' is where I was sitting."
Author: Erin Morgenstern
14. "Comic-Con has become more of a pop cultural festival, and to not be included feels like you're missing the biggest celebration of the year."
Author: Felicia Day
15. "I think Hollywood has seen what fandom can do for a project. You can definitely see that when you go to Comic-con."
Author: Felicia Day
16. "Comics were going down for the second time and here, all of a sudden, came this thing and for the next fifteen years, romance comics were about the top sellers in the field; they outsold everything."
Author: Gil Kane
17. "I love the comic opportunities that come up in the context of a father-son relationship."
Author: Harrison Ford
18. "Even a pretty traditional comic book writer can make valuable contributions to the Internet."
Author: Harvey Pekar
19. "A lot of comic conventions go way beyond comic books and include other parts of pop culture, like celebrities and science fiction and movies and books. So I go to them either as a celebrity, or as a fan, because I'm a big sci-fi geek."
Author: Jane Wiedlin
20. "No true fan wants to go to Comic-Con and get assaulted with a marketing blitz about just any old show."
Author: Jim Lee
21. "A-list stars go to Comic-Con to woo the nerd demographic."
Author: Jim Lee
22. "It was this other side of Avery - the fact that he so visibly had an other side - that was helping me finally understand all three of the dimensions in Kafka: that a man could be a sweet, sympathetic, comically needy victim and a lascivious, self-aggrandizing, grudge-bearing bore, and also, crucially, a third thing: a flickering consciousness, a simultaneity of culpable urge and poignant self-reproach, a person in process."
Author: Jonathan Franzen
23. "Spidey was the one comic I read consistently throughout my childhood. As someone who grew up a nerd, scrawny, and picked on in high school, I related very strongly to Peter Parker."
Author: Josh Keaton
24. "The art department at Wayne has taught me so much about developing my skills in painting. And now I'm learning how to take those skills and apply them to the discipline of design. I'm probably going to join a small firm after this and keep doing what I love on the side. If I can publish a small run of comics while working at a firm, I consider that successful. I'll have everything I want then."
Author: K. Guillory
25. "These were the kids who would take LSD for recreational purposes, who relied upon tape recorders to supply the weird studio effects their music required and who could repeat the cosmic wisdom of the Space Brothers as if it were the Pledge of Allegiance. Brought up on space heroes and super beings, as revealed to them in comic books and TV shows, the whole galaxy was their birthright, just as Mad magazine and cheap B-movies had shown them hows stupid and flimsy a construct daily life could be. To the subtle dismay of their parents, this was a generation capable of thinking the unthinkable as a matter of course. That their grand cosmological adventure should come to an end just as Neil Armstrong succeeded in bringing Suburbia to the Moon is another story and it will have to wait for another time."
Author: Ken Hollings
26. "I love nerds. Comic-Con junkies are the tastemakers of tomorrow. Isn't that funny? The tables have turned."
Author: Kristen Bell
27. "If you want to go on the floor, go in disguise because otherwise you won't be able to. I would just put on a full Darth Vader costume and walk through Comic-Con so I can actually check it out and enjoy it as opposed to being approached by everyone, which is lovely, but it gets very difficult to enjoy because there's so many people there."
Author: Kunal Nayyar
28. "We live in a bubble sometimes, and you can get out of touch with your fans. You go to the studio, you come home. But coming to Comic-Con is a real opportunity to connect with the people that made your show happen and are responsible for its continued success. It's really humbling."
Author: Kunal Nayyar
29. "Comic-Con has been an amazing experience. It's overwhelming, I have to admit, because of the lines and the crowds."
Author: Kunal Nayyar
30. "The umpire had comical news. The congregation had been theoretically spotted from the air by a theoretical enemy. They were all theoretically dead now. The theoretical corpses laughed and ate a hearty noontime meal."
Author: Kurt Vonnegut
31. "Comic books, movies, radio programmes centered their entertainment around the fact of torture. With the clearest of consciences, with a patriotic intensity, children dreamed, talked, acted orgies of physical abuse. Imaginations were released to wander on a reconnaissance mission from Cavalry to Dachau. European children starved and watched their parents scheme and die. Here we grew up with toy whips. Early warning against our future leaders, the war babies."
Author: Leonard Cohen
32. "Comic-Con is overwhelming when you have such a long day of press schedules."
Author: Lyndsy Fonseca
33. "Look, you came all the way out here to help me. The least I can do is give you a place to stay. But my dad will be there, so…""So we have to be quiet," he whispers, waggling his eyebrows comically.I just smile. I neither confirm nor deny that there will be more sex. But there will be. If he tries very hard at all, there definitely will be."
Author: M. Leighton
34. "When you say 'comic book' in America, people think of Mickey Mouse, and Archie. It has a connotation of juvenile."
Author: Mark Hamill
35. "I can go to a movie theater and watch a movie I was in with an audience... but with television, the opportunity to meet the fans at Comic Con or any other situation, it's a chance to enter that circle; it's that sharing."
Author: Mark Sheppard
36. "I think that, if the world was a bit more like Comic-Con, we'd all be a little happier."
Author: Matt Smith
37. "The newspaper articles that Joe had read about the upcoming Senate investigation into comic books always cited "escapism" among the litany of injurious consequences of their reading, and dwelled on the pernicious effect, on young minds, of satisfying the desire to escape. As if there could be any more noble or necessary service in life."
Author: Michael Chabon
38. "There followed one of those comical interludes in which the jihadists were confused about what to do next and fell to bitter recriminations."
Author: Neal Stephenson
39. "The silent film has a lot of meanings. The first part of the film is comic. It represents the burlesque feel of those silent films. But I think that the second part of the film is full of tenderness and emotion."
Author: Pedro Almodovar
40. "How small and neat and comically serious the other men looked, with their grey-flecked crew cuts and their button-down collars and their brisk little hurrying feet! There were endless desperate swarms of them, hurrying through the station and the streets, and an hour from now they would all be still. The waiting mid-town office buildings would swallow them up and contain them, so that to stand in one tower looking out across the canyon to another would be to inspect a great silent insectarium displaying hundreds of tiny pink men in white shirts, forever shifting papers and frowning into telephones, acting out their passionate little dumb show under the supreme indifference of the rolling spring clouds."
Author: Richard Yates
41. "You used your power to toss one rock at me?" he exclaimed, an almost comic note of incredulity in his voice. "On the contrary," I heard Dorian say pleasantly. "I didn't use magic for that. I just threw it."
Author: Richelle Mead
42. "I came to one of the first Comic Cons in 1985, when it was just people trading back issues of comic books."
Author: Scott Aukerman
43. "I mean, I love Comic-Con."
Author: Seth Rogen
44. "Do people always act this way around you? (Kiara)You should have seen the reactions when I wore a League uniform. Those were actually comical. Except for the ones who lost control of their bowels. Then it was just messy. (Nykyrian)"
Author: Sherrilyn Kenyon
45. "Great works of art in all cultures succeed in capturing within the constraints of their form both the pathos of anguish and a vision of its resolution. Take, for example, the languorous sentences of Proust or the haiku of Basho, the late quartets and sonatas of Beethoven, the tragicomic brushwork of Sengai or the daunting canvases of Rothko, the luminous self-portraits of Rembrandt and Hakuin. Such works achieve their resolution not through consoling or romantic images whereby anguish is transcended. They accept anguish without being overwhelmed by it. They reveal anguish as that which gives beauty its dignity and depth."
Author: Stephen Batchelor
46. "Hell, if someome wrote a book about you, well, it'd sell a million copies the day it was released. And if someone else was clever enough to write a parody - you know, to privide som comic relief during these extremely difficult economic times - that would probably be an even bigger seller, or at least it shoud be. So, just come clean with me, Ed. Your secret's safe with me, and whoever reads my internet blog. You...are...a...vampire!"
Author: Stephen Jenner
47. "To fail to try to understand the world from the point of view of the lion or the bat is to admit that the human existence is so limited that it cannot project itself satisfactorily into the minds of different creatures. Do we really want to accept this limitation when we quite satisfactorily project ourselves into all sorts of invented imaginary creatures, even those with very different sensory systems and value systems than our own? All one need do is to read a few comic books to conclude that the projection abilities of our species are great indeed and that our children, at least, have little difficulty in going beyond their ordinary frameworks of reality."
Author: Sue Savage Rumbaugh
48. "The clown figure has had so many meanings in different times and cultures. The jolly, well-loved joker familiar to most people is actually but one aspect of this protean creature. Madmen, hunchbacks, amputees, and other abnormals were once considered natural clowns; they were elected to fulfill a comic role which could allow others to see them as ludicrous rather than as terrible reminders of the forces of disorder in the world. But sometimes a cheerless jester was required to draw attention to this same disorder, as in the case of King Lear's morbid and honest fool, who of course was eventually hanged, and so much for his clownish wisdom. Clowns have often had ambiguous and sometimes contradictory roles to play. ("The Last Feast Of The Harlequin")"
Author: Thomas Ligotti
49. "If I were a modern writing about a modern young woman I would have to do her wedding night in grisly detail. The custom of the country and the times would demand a description, preferable "comic," of foreplay, lubrication, penetration, and climax and in deference to the accepted opinions about Victorian love, I would have to abort the climax and end the wedding night in tears and desolate comfortings. But I don't know. I have a good deal of confidence in both Susan Burling and the man she married. I imagine they worked it out without the need of any scientific lubricity and with even less need to make their privacies public."
Author: Wallace Stegner
50. "Still,[...] in all forms of comics the sequential artist relies upon the tacit cooperation of the reader. This cooperation is based upon the convention of reading and the common cognitive disciplines. Indeed, it is this very voluntary cooperation, so unique to comics, that underlies the contract between artist and audience."
Author: Will Eisner
