->"''People say what are UndergroundComics, and the best way to define them is the absolute freedom. Thatís involved, and that is important. People forget that what it was all about. Thatís why we did it. It's because we didnít have [[ExecutiveMeddling anyone standing over us]] telling us [[MoralGuardians ĎNo you cant draw this, you canít show that, you canít make fun of Catholics, you canít make fun of this or thatí]]. We just drew whatever we wanted, and throughout the process we had to break every taboos first and get that over with. Drawing racist images, sexual perversions, making fun of attorney figures, all of that and getting down with business. ''"
