I always loved, most of all with doing comics, the fact that I knew I was in the gutter. I kind of miss that, even these days, whenever people come up and inform me, oh, you do graphic novels. No. I wrote comic books, for heaven’s sake. They’re creepy and I was down in the gutter and you despised me. “No, no, we love you! We want to give you awards! You write graphic novels!” We like it here in the gutter.

-Neil Gaiman, as quoted in a NPR article.
