I know I’m not normal

Among my hobbies is hanging on the words of manga scholar and sometimes translator Matt Thorn. Brigid Alverson makes this very easy by conducting a delightful interview with Thorn for Publishers Weekly Comics Week. Resist the money quote if you dare:

“First I told them, ‘This whole business model is unmanageable. You’re selling to a subset of a subset. Normal people never walk into comic shops.'”

    (Okay, it’s probably just my jealousy talking. I could only ever do a kind-of round-off.)
