Look, that's me!

This strip is based on the idea that comics are better off when the people in charge don't pay any attention to the content. This has been proven many times throughout comics history. Take Marvel Comics during the 70's, for instance. Guys like Jim Starlin and Steve Gerber did crazy experimental and personal work with corporate-owned comics, because the editors didn't care what they did, as long as they got pages turned in on time. Throughout the 80s and 90s, Paul Levitz shielded DC Comics from the unholy gaze of Time-Warner, and they put out all kinds of great comics. Once the Management notices what you're doing, though, you're in trouble.
