Is Mills really saying he doesn't like sci-fi, though? I just get he's disappointed the topics he wants to discuss need to be shrouded in sci-fi in order to be presented, and that's mostly down to Action getting pummelled in the media.

I just think that quote can be interpreted in different ways, Jim. Bearing in mind Mills is discussing topics he really wanted to depict and he feels portraying those topics in a sci-fi setting is a retreat from a 'real' setting, but I don't necessarily read he doesn't like sci-fi from it.

I love Pat Mills:


"Arthur C Clarke may be a smart-ass and he knows all these things about this, that and the other, but a lot of his characters are boring and wouldn't make good comic material. 2001 was a brilliant film but the characters are lousy. In a comic, you start with good, strong characters"
