WAITING FOR TOMMY: ED BRUBAKER
By Richard Johnston

RICH: Looks like I'll have to resort to shoplifting then. You've written a fair few crime comics in your time. Does crime pay?

ED: That depends on your definition of crime, I guess. Corporate crime sure seems to, as does sleazy government cronyism. The kind of crime I prefer just seems to keep everyone barely afloat and awash with guilt and regret at the same time.

RICH: Crime is like sex?

ED: Well, anal sex, certainly. At least in Texas.

RICH: Any desire to write porn comics? I hear Avatar are putting together a very interesting line...

ED: I thought this was supposed to be a funny interview?

 

CATWOMAN #25 - SIGNED BY ED BRUBAKER WITH ARTISTS PAUL GULACY AND JIMMY PALMIOTTI!

RICH: That's very debatable. From small press writer/artist of books like Lowlife to Vertigo slice-of-nasty-life to superhero writer... what advice would you give your former selves? And how do you think you'd have taken it?

ED: I'd tell myself in my early to mid-twenties to stop caring what the Comics Journal says and just enjoy whatever you enjoy, regardless of genre or artistic goals. Raymond Chandler said it best -- "There is no high art or low art, there's just art, and precious little of that."

I'd tell the eager Vertigo break-in me to stick to the stuff I knew best and not worry about trying to please everyone. Not to second-guess what felt like the right thing to do for what they tell you they want you to do.

I think both of my former selves would've told me to shut up. As Lewis Carroll said, "I give myself such good advice but I rarely seldom follow it."

Jesus. What's with all my quoting famous writers all of a sudden? I swear I don't have a Bartlett's Familiar Quotations in my house at all.
