GRIMES: “As for ‘Numbleschitz’, I’ve always been more than pleased with the way the writing and dynamics of the piece turned out.

But, the ‘jagged coke bottle’ inking almost singlehandedly sinks it.

I’ve come very close to using the title character again. (The one with the bacon strips for hair).

He has the vigor of an overoxygenated Jack-o’-lantern.

But, if you try to do that same sort of thing again with a character it’s often never as primally funny. The ‘nobler’ and more together they get the duller they can be, too.

Perhaps, he’ll still turn up. If you see him hitchhiking, don’t pick him up!” — Rick Grimes (December 22nd, 2008).
