SexWorkerWatch: Chester Brown keeps doing the interview runaround;

“The closest we came to a conflict was in deciding what the title should be. I favoured more “direct” titles that used words like “sex”, “prostitute”, or “trick” — they wanted to avoid those words. But as vehement and passionate as they were on the subject, they still would have let me use a more direct title if I had insisted on it. As you know, I disliked the title Paying For It because it implies that I paid for “it” in some non-monetary way.”

‘V for Vendetta’ artist David Lloyd Revolutionary comic art – INQUIRER.net, Philippine News for Filipinos

It was also a turning point because the editor started his own independent publication, called “Warrior,” and wanted me to create a similar character, and that’s how “V for Vendetta was born. I was asked to write and draw that, but I knew Alan Moore at that time. Alan Moore is brilliant, and I knew it would be better if Alana would write it, so we got him on board and it worked out very well.
