„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 Comic creator 1949

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.
