Runoff takes off: Newsarama talks with Runoff creator Tom Manning:

"... I like challenges and I wanted to write a book that wasn’t exactly a genre. A book that would be really hard to explain to someone else. Something without a catchphrase. In 1999, I was coming out of college and I was frustrated because I read Marvel Comics as a kid but now I didn’t know what to read but I didn’t see anyone taking comics to the levels they should be going to. I’m not trying to say that Runoff takes comics to a new level but to look at comics as a medium and not just entertainment. It’s not Frankenstein versus Wolverine."
