If these are my stories you've been telling, if I'm the star of this "comic book," then why am I always on the sidelines? Why am I always just an observer?
Grant Morrison: It's the same for almost everyone. We expect starring roles in our own lives but somehow we just end up with walk-on parts.
Life doesn't have plots and subplots and denouements. It's just a big collection of loose ends and dangling threads that never get explained.
