@eskimospy Ha! Yeah, I name every computer-related device I have after things in Back to the Future. My thumb drives are “The Hoverboard” and “Pitbull” (griff’s hoverboard). The external backups you see there are “Griff” and “McFly”. I have another HD that’s named “The Clock Tower” and a portable HD that’s named “Einstein” (Doc Brown’s dog, for those unfamiliar).

It’s a problem. :)

ROZ KIRBY: Have you been satisfied with what you’ve done?

KIRBY: Have I been satisfied with what I’ve done?

GROTH: Yeah.

KIRBY: If I’ve done it myself, I’ve always been satisfied. If somebody interfered, it always created a bad period in my life.

GROTH: What was the most creatively rewarding period in your career?

KIRBY: I believe when I was given full rein on The New Gods. I was given full rein on The New Gods, and I was given full rein on Mr. Miracle. Mr. Miracle was a fine strip. I was given full rein on many other strips, which sold extremely well and made me very happy. I was happy doing them because as a professional, you’ve got to take the credit for it, or you’ve got to take the, beating for it. I don’t like to take a beating without being responsible.


GROTH: You don’t want to take somebody else’s beating.

KIRBY: I don’t want to take somebody else’s beating. That makes me unhappy. So right now, I can tell you, I’m a happy man because whatever I’m doing, I do for myself and I do a little creating here and there for others, and they work out very well. I feel like an independent man, and I am. This is the kind of feeling I always wanted. You can rarely get that… Well, I could rarely get that in the early part of my life.

GROTH: I think most people can rarely get that. You have to fight for it.

KIRBY: Yes.
