WAITING FOR TOMMY: JAY FAERBER
By Richard Johnston

RICHARD: No sending him to the typing pool then?
JAY: Not unless the book gets cancelled. If that happens, he'll probably need the work.

RICHARD: Are there any creator's career paths that you seek to emulate? Would you be happy in the bosom of a publisher with occasional side projects like Brian Bendis? Or a wide variety of work, with occasional forays into company projects like Warren Ellis?
JAY: I think Greg Rucka's got the perfect career. He's got a successful novel series, a healthy creator-owned book, a "fringe" book at DC, plus consistent work on Big Name characters, to keep his name out there. I think it's a great combination, and there's not a stinker in the bunch.

RICHARD: Do you have a novel in you, too?
JAY: Absolutely. A lot more than one, I'd say. It's just a matter of getting the prose muscles back in shape. I'm starting on a mystery novel featuring Webster Dodge, my private eye protagonist from Dodge's Bullets.

RICHARD: Did you pitch to Epic?
JAY: Initially, yes. I sent them the script for the first issue of a new series that was called, at the time, Thunder Girls. It's a mother/daughter super-hero duo. Stephanie Moore liked the first script, and asked for a couple very small -- and reasonable -- changes. I made the changes, and re-submitted the script. She didn't get to read it right away, and as I waited for her to read it, I began to hear lots of horror stories coming out about Epic, and I started thinking that maybe this wasn't the best idea. So, I basically retracted the script, thanked Stephanie for her time, and it's since been re-worked into an idea called Firebirds, and will be published in September, at Image.

RICHARD: That's right, that's right, leave the news to the last page to keep 'em reading. You've done this before haven't you? Who's the artist?
JAY
: Andres Ponce, who drew most of Noble Causes: Distant Relatives.

RICHARD: And look everyone! Art!
