I returned home with Pat Mills' work fresh on my mind as a result. I happened to see online that Mills had a new e-book available of his memoirs with 2000 AD.
Without hesitation, I purchased the e-book off Amazon and began devouring it immediately.
I must say that I was extremely satisfied. Immensely.
If you've ever seen or heard Mills in interviews, you already know the passion, enthusiasm and sardonic wit that he always relays. It was no different here in the book and it seemed as if I could almost hear his voice and cadence as I was reading (as odd as that sounds). Also, I can already see some people complaining that the minutiae of creators' rights and creative development make the book seem slow. That would be a falsehood. As a freelance artist myself, I find myself constantly engrossed in reading experiences of the pragmatism it takes to makes one's living as a creative person. It's a rough business and being a gentleman is not always advised as Mills relates with entertaining and informative anecdotes.
Much like his legendary comics work, there's an immediacy that crackles off Mills' prose and it will keep the pages turning.
And if that's not enough, Mills adds in a link to an extra story regarding an episode in the book where he and other creators concoct a plan to get their past due payments from a publisher. I won't spoil but it is a very funny story and a nice touch that adds value to an already great package. It's got plenty of Thrill Power!!!
I would have liked more description of the artists that Pat worked with. We never get a sense of who Bolland, O'Neill, Fabry etc were. Surely they were great characters? Also photos from the time would be nice. For a book about comics, the lack of any illustrations or photos is a shame (I guess this is a rights issue).
ps Mills preaches a little. But isn't that why we love him.
