Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I was a fan of the Daredevil and Green Arrow characters, so it seemed logical to write them. Now I'm kind of interested in taking obscure characters and seeing if we can turn them into top ten books. I mean, DD and GA had somewhat built-in audiences, so there was a basis to work from. But could we take a Doctor Strange book and put that in the top ten? That'd be a fun challenge. See more »

Trivia:

Big fan and friend of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez. When Smith finished Clerks II (2006) he invited Rodriguez and Tarantino to be among the first to view it. See more »

Trademark:

Characters often have an obnoxious but loyal and lifelong friend who are often the cause of conflict but ultimately redeem themselves through their actions (Randal Graves in Clerks (1994) and Clerks II (2006), Brodie in Mallrats (1995), Banky in Chasing Amy (1997), Zack in Zack and Miri Make a Porno (2008)) See more »
