Said in a very thoughtful tone by Doug TenNapel, an industry veteran on creating certain types of work:
Why would I want to write something that an old man wouldn’t want to read? What does that say about me?
Sure, maybe not every old man would be interested in the material, but this makes me never want to write something that would bring a slow frown to the face of my grandfather. I’m gonna carry that with me in my chest.
The more I listen to Doug TenNapel (via the Making Comics podcast), the more I love what he has to say.
