The Bangor Daily News interviews Non Sequitur creator Wiley Miller about his life in Kennebunkport, ME and his views on editors pulling comics.
“Editors are word people. A cartoon is an abstract,” he said. “Today [editors] seem to be so much more afraid of a quote offending anybody that their first reaction is to err on the side of caution. Since they can’t fix the copy in it, they just cancel it. This was just a straight gag, very innocuous. The cartoons that you think are going to raise some hackles quite often get nothing. The ones you don’t expect to sometimes evoke some rancor.”
