WAITING FOR TOMMY: JIMMY PALMIOTTI
By Richard Johnston

RICHARD: Well, I think that's worth a commission right there. DiDio is the spit of Hank off of Larry Sanders Show though, right? Right? And how come all those Dan Buckley photos disappeared off of Brooklyn Bizarro so quickly?

JIMMY: Dan DiDio is much more lean and secure than hank could ever be. Hank was a lovable mess...there is none of that in Dan. As far as the pictures on Brooklyn Bizarro go, whenever one of our group finally makes it to a position where the photos of that person can be used against him, we take the pictures right off the sight. Hell...you even abused a photo of him for 3 weeks.

RICHARD: Oh I think I feel a revival coming on.

JIMMY: Brooklyn Bizarro is supposed to be a garage basement of stuff and a fun site where we let it all hang out. That was my choice to pull his photos, and for the record, not the first time I had pictures pulled from there...couple of years ago we had to do the same for another friend of ours. She just landed a job where she was in the public eye and you know how sensitive that friggin public eye can be. There were a lot of shots of her drinking shots off another girls belly. Some people could take that the wrong way...you know?

RICHARD: Yeah, people are funny like that. There's been a spate of decisions taken at Marvel, book cancellations mostly, that give the impression of a new broom. As someone who's been inside and outside of Marvel, what would you speculate is going on in there? For a company that's successfully moved out of bankruptcy, they seem a whole lot more risk-averse than they used to be when Jemas was running around with a bucket of tar and feathers.

JIMMY: The cancellations and such that are going on are probably things that have been in the works for a while now. All companies have to look at the line each quarter and see what is and isn't working for them. I learned that first hand this past year.

I think what all the companies are realizing is that they need to appeal to a larger market place and by doing that, they have to mold the company more carefully to make the books more approachable. For Marvel, from what I know, Bill is still on the job, and they are glad about that. Since Joe and Bill have been there, the company has done very well for itself, so I don't see any major changes coming down the line except more titles that can have a life outside a comic shop. I think that is something both companies are focusing on ...its the next market to conquer to stay in business.

To tell the truth, I don't really follow what is going on at the companies these days...that's their problem, not mine. I have my own work that needs to be done and that is my first priority. after Amanda.

RICHARD: So, DiDio or Buckley, who'd win in a bare naked wrestling match

JIMMY: If it got that far, I would have already left the room.
