WAITING FOR TOMMY - HEIDI MACDONALD
By Richard Johnston

RICHARD: So what, rare, comic books do you see as "making you see your own world in a different way"?

HEIDI: I just read the Gilbert Hernandez collection PALOMAR, and that's one of the greatest things I've ever read. LOVE AND ROCKETS is definitely my all time favorite comic of any kind. In recent books, SAME DIFFERENCE and other stories by Derek Kirk Kim amazed me. Kim is astonishingly talented, both in art and the ability to tell a story. If he were more prolific he'd be the great hope of comics. BLANKETS. KRAMER'S ERGOT #4. Older stuff, FROM HELL, HUTCH OWEN, anything by Eddie Campbell. SANDMAN, INVISIBLES, PREACHER.

 

SPIDER-MAN: DOC OCK #1 - SIGNED BY ARTIST KERON GRANT!

On a completely different tip, ONE PIECE, by Eiichoro Oda is a lot of fun - it's a wacky pirate adventure, with a real sense of storytelling and character. IRON WOK JAN by Shinji Saijyo is one of the great guilty pleasures of comics. These are both entertainments, but really well done.

In mainstream comics, not too much really catches my eye. I still love PLANETARY on the rare occasions it comes out - sorry kids, I guess It's coming out more often again.

RICHARD: We see the bizarre things people say on message boards in public. do they get worse in private e-mail?

HEIDI: Not really. A couple of times I've called people out in email, and they just whimper or don't even answer. I don't know if it's just that I'm intimidating, which some people have told me, or that they have to have an audience. I get a few weird emails, but they are mostly from my friends. Hoo hoo haw.

RICHARD: I only find you intimidating because you're a loud American. I get this feeling you're going to invade something any second. Um. Are you?

HEIDI: As long as Tony Blair plays Muttley to Dubya's Snideley Whiplash, you guys are safe.

RICHARD: How involved do you get in your subjects? Or do you preserve a hard sheen of cynicism?

HEIDI: I guess I'm pretty cynical about everything, but not in a judgmental way, I hope. It's my job to try to approach everything on its own level. Which is impossible for any single human being, because we all have our little prejudices. Jen and I have are always trying to get a little more hard-hitting with the Pulse, just because it's way more interesting that way. I will say that as an antidote to my innate cynicism, I always try to do research for any story I'm working on, and it gets very time consuming When you're dealing with a daily newssite that has four or five stories a day, it gets to be a balancing act between how much you can really devote to any one thing. Hey the internet is transient, right? No one is going to care about stuff you write today tomorrow or even be able to find it, for crying out loud ;)
