WAITING FOR TOMMY: JAMIE RICH
By Richard Johnston

RICHARD: What's the product from Oni that you're proudest of? Why?

JAMIE: Gosh, it's always hard, and I usually have to step back and say the work with I've done with Andi and Chynna, because those two creators' books are the shining examples of what I left Dark Horse to do. Those are the comics I was most desperate to read. That's if you put a gun to my head. I can tick off just about every book we've done and have a good reason why it's special. Like, today Union Station comes out, and I had to thank Ande Parks for giving me a gangster comic, and for giving me a chance to work with Eduardo Barreto again. There are very few Oni books I wish we never did, and get me drunk at a con, I'll probably tell you. And even then, the intentions at the beginning were noble.

RICHARD: Oni has been ahead of the game with the likes of Kevin Smith, Greg Rucka, Blair Witch and oodles more. Who of the current crew do you reckon will be the next surprise hit Oni has on its hands?

 

QUEEN AND COUNTRY: OPERATION MORNINGSTAR TPB

JAMIE: No question, it's Antony Johnston. That guy can write anything. His scripts blow me away. They're clean and concise and he nails it every time. His first four books with us are a romantic comedy, psychological horror/action, Shakespearian crime, and then straight-up horror. All done with equal skill. After him, it's Neal Shaffer. Neal is a similar writer when it comes to skill, though I think he will end up going on the road less taken. Antony's work is challenging and smart work, but not in the same way as Neal's. Antony is Billy Wilder, Neal is Jean-Luc Godard.

RICHARD: Finally, spoil a surprise for Joe. Tell us one of the projects Oni have got coming up, so that he won't be able to announce it exclusively once you've gone.

JAMIE: Ha! That'll teach him for being at a con in Vegas while this is all going down! Well, we haven't really leaked much yet about our next book with the Days Like This team, J. Torres & Scott Chantler. It's called Scandalous, and it's about feuding gossip columnists in the Golden Age of Hollywood. Or what would you say to a Queen & Country script book, compiling the first story arc with sketches by Steve Rolston? Or the fact that Rolston is returning to the title for the anniversary issue, #25?

RICHARD: Yeah, yeah, yeah, Queen And Country this, Queen And Country that, but feuding gossip columnists?? You're publishing a comic just for me aren't you Jamie? I'm touched, I'm really touched.

Jamie Rich publishes Oni Press. for now. Rich Johnston writes Lying In The Gutters. Next week, Geoff Johns. The week after, Micah Wright.
