In an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, best-selling author Janet Evanovich talks about her love for Joss Whedon’s “Buffy” comic books and manga:

ORLANDO SENTINEL: You’ve cited comic books as an influence, and it seems to run in the family. Have you thought of writing for comics yourself?

JANET EVANOVICH: You know, I have. Several years ago, we tried to get a contract to write manga. My daughter is my Web master, and she’s a huge comic-book fan. We just couldn’t make it profitable for us, but we’re thinking about re-examining it. Have you seen (Joss Whedon’s) Buffy comics? Oh my God, they’re fantastic! I would love to do something like that. I love Fruits Basket; I love Cowboy Bebop. I like a lot of stuff out there.
