WAITING FOR TOMMY: MICAH WRIGHT
By Richard Johnston

RICHARD: Might give you a chance to get some work done though.?

MICAH: I don't think they allow the Unlawful Combatants access to paper or computers. I'd have to be all Alan Moore about it and store up years worth of comic stories in my brain to spring forth fully-formed from my skull like a Greek God once I was released.

RICHARD: Jemas is gone, replaced by another Fleer drinking buddy at Marvel. Epic is all but gone. Fancy another crack at the House Of Idea?

MICAH: To be quite honest, looking back on that entire "Micah Vs. Joe Quesada" online Battle to end all Super Battles, it was stupid of me to have spoken out about it in public. I had a meeting at Marvel which didn't go as well as I felt it could have. I should have just gone home and complained to my cats. Instead, I mentioned it online, forgetting that when you tell one guy, or even 50 of your closest internet friends, you're really telling the whole world. Joe Quesada reacted as many people would and lashed out at some guy he considered to be unfairly criticizing his employees. Like a moron, I punched back online, and then Joe hit me back online and after that third round, I grew tired of filling YOUR column every week with MORE examples of "Micah Vs. Joey Q" and so I wrote Joe a letter explaining my side of the story and apologizing to him for the increasingly histrionic tone of my responses to his comments and for any inadvertent harm I'd done to his employees.

Joe was really nice about it and wrote back saying that he was really only concerned about the way his Marvel's employees were spoken about. He also said that if I wanted to pitch him something, he'd make sure it got a fair read. I fully intend to take him up on that some day soon.

So, I guess the answer to your question is "I never had an online fight with Bill Jemas. I had an online fight with Joe Quesada."

 

THE AUTHORITY: UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT TPB

RICHARD: What else can we look forward to from you on the comics front?

MICAH: Well, there's VIGILANTE, coming in July from DC Comics. That's my first book under the DC Bullet, so I'm really excited about that... DC's books are higher profile and ship to different people than who generally read Wildstorm's books. I have a few things which are in various stages of approvals and I don't want to jinx any of them by talking about them in public yet. I'm also preparing a few pitches for Marvel and a few European companies... seems that my work sells pretty well in Europe for some reason, or so I'm told.

And, perennially, I'm always trying to get "American Cross" off of the ground. Now it's a little easier because I can say "American version of Master & Commander" and people suddenly get it, whereas before, they mostly went "huh?" when I tried to explain it.

RICHARD: That one's been a long time coming - I read your pitch for that before anyone had even mentioned StormWatch. well, I'll buy a copy. Thanks Micah.
