Excerpt from my interview with Bleeding Cool today:

But the comics I enjoyed reading as a kid were stories I could grow into and continue enjoying on some level into adulthood. If a story was watered down for my benefit I could sense it right away, and although I might read the issue if someone bought it for me I wasn’t going to ask for the next issue. I focus on writing stories with humor and layers that take advantage of the medium and the skills of my artist. I continue as an adult to subscribe to all-ages comics alongside my long list of horror titles and I want Littlest Pet Shop to be the kind of comic that has appeal well after the readers are out of grade school. A fan once started a letter to me about my My Little Pony Celestia Micro that began, “You may have thought you wrote a simple children’s story…”, but I didn’t think that at the time. My approach to every project is to never write a simple anything.

The best conversation anyone will have today

Conversations with kids always leave me stunned at how amazing being a kid is. 

This morning, I took my kids to daycare. After I’d dropped them off in their respective classrooms, I went to put my 3 year old’s lunch away in a fridge in one of the big activity rooms… a room that is full of elementary school aged kids waiting for the bus every morning. 

This morning, I overheard the kids all talking about their favorite characters.

“Jake the Dog!”

“Creeper!” (That’s a Minecraft thing, right?)

“Elsa!”

A girl that was about 10 said “Legolas!” and a few of the other kids shrugged it off. I turned and said “I’m a Samwise fan myself, but Legolas is pretty great.”

She must have recognized a kindred nerd spirit in me because she launched into a 3 minute, frenzied talk about The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit and her love for them. She even fit in a  “and I KNOW it’s not in the movies but in the books…” 

I told her she sounded like a true Tolkien Scholar. 

She looked at me like I was crazy. “What’s that?”

“Oh, a Tolkien Scholar is someone who studies Tolkien’s books… like, as a job.”

She got very quiet for a minute and said “You can do that for a job?”

“Yep.”

She looked right at me and said “I know what I want to be when I grow up.” My heart almost melted, the moment was so cute. 

Then the bus came and she left. 

And I have to live with the fact that in the timespan of about 6 minutes, I created a Liberal Arts major.

Sometimes I wonder what it’d be like to turn to a life of crime. Probably the same.
