„I’ve always used my work to examine what is currently going on in my own life. It’s cheaper than going to a shrink.“

—  Jim Starlin

Interview at Newsarama (15 July 2006)
Kontext: When I finished with Captain Marvel I had turned him from a warrior into a mystic. Adam Warlock was a mystical messiah. Where to go from there? Decided to reverse course and turn him into a suicidal paranoid/schizophrenic, which was the way I was feeling at the time. I’ve always used my work to examine what is currently going on in my own life. It’s cheaper than going to a shrink. The Death of Captain Marvel was a great way of working through my own father’s death.

„I've made more money in novels than I did in my entire career in comics.“

Interview at comicbookresources.com (28 July 2000) http://www.comicbookresources.com/news/newsitem.cgi?id=194
Kontext: I've made more money in novels than I did in my entire career in comics. The few years I did novels, they paid off so well, I don't have to be a slave to doing comics. But I'd rather do comics than novels. If I wanted to do it just for the money, I'd run off and do another novel. I just don't have the juice for it. I'm really not interested in it. It's a love for what this medium is.

„We tried to do this the easy way — and we failed. Now begins the conflict I strove to avoid.“

Adam Warlock, in The Infinity Gauntlet (1991), Issue 4 : Cosmic Battle on the Edge of the Universe
Kontext: We tried to do this the easy way — and we failed. Now begins the conflict I strove to avoid. It may well prove to be a battle the Universe cannot survive! Eternity, it is now your turn.

„There are forces at work you do not perceive. I weave a delicate strategy which rash actions could rend. Patience, please.“

Adam Warlock to Doctor Doom, as the gathered heroes prepare to confront Thanos, in The Infinity Gauntlet (1991), Issue 3: Preparations for War.

„Naked power is seldom the answer to any problem.“

Adam Warlock to Galactus, attempting to convince him to join with the heroes allied with him in his plans to defeat Thanos, in The Infinity Gauntlet (1991), Issue 3: Preparations for War.
Kontext: Naked power is seldom the answer to any problem. Surely you must know that even this group's combined might is nothing compared to the force Thanos wields. Only a richly complex and skillfully executed strategy will insure your survival. Time is short and I have such a plan.

„I’m a firm believer that in-depth subjects can be better handled in a fantasy setting.“

Undated comment at his official site. http://www.starlin.com/creations/
Kontext: I’m a firm believer that in-depth subjects can be better handled in a fantasy setting. … Let’s face it, traveling to some far off land is a terrific way to break the mold, to do something different. Isn’t that why we go on vacations?

„Just came from the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy.“

As quoted in "Guardians Of The Galaxy Is Marvel’s Best Movie Yet" by Gregory Wakeman in YAHOO movies (23 July 2014) https://uk.movies.yahoo.com/guardians-galaxy-marvel-best-movie-yet-030700879.html
Kontext: Just came from the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy. With all the hype I expected to be a bit disappointed. It just couldn't be as good as everyone was predicting. And they were wrong. It's even better than everyone said. It just might be Marvel's best movie yet.
