When I was a child, ladies and gentleman, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a the hero of the comic book. I saw movies, and I was the hero of the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed, has come true a hundred times.
Elvis Presley

A new site called Quotes On Comics with random testimonials such as the above, and other thoughtful quotes from comics practitioners. Proprietor Paulo Patrício hopes to keep expanding it with ever more pithy sayings.


  1. Nice. I like the simple interface.
    Especially the lack of “Pow! Bam! Whok!” cliché graphics. My only wish would be a searchable data base and a full listing instead of a pop up quote.

    Well, at least that’s what it looked like on my iPhone.
    Still, nicely done.

  2. Yes, although once I was told he wore a girdle for the Comeback Special and my faith in the human spirit was considerably crushed. but you know what? Doesn’t matter!!!!

  3. It is common knowledge that Elvis’ wardrobe was inspired by Captain Marvel Jr.

    And not so common knowledge: President Obama is not the first President to be a comicbook fan.

    Also, it would be nice to have a link imbedded with the source so we can discover who the speaker is/was. (And the Author Index should be alphabetized by LAST name, and there should be a search engine.)
