FOR TOMMY 4
again to Waiting For Tommy. I'm
Rich Johnston, your ever-loving
monger taking a short break to share with you thoughts,
meanderings and art cut and pasted from all over the place.
And no, I still haven't gotten the picture of The White
Queen out of my head from last week. You could probably
lose the whole Xavier Institute up there. Anyway.
snubbed by Karen Berger, I thought I'd share my proposal
for a brand new Wildstorm comic book with you. But, sadly,
John Nee has failed to return my emails about the project,
so I'll give him a week to reconsider.

familiar tale it is as well - and apparently another name
for the proposed Heaven's Clock series reported on a few
years ago - and that Jim
Krueger's website still refers to as about to be published
from DC's Wildstorm imprint in 2001? The following description
is almost identical.
upon a time, there was a giant clock that creaked and moaned
within a hollow mountain. It was a secret behemoth. A wonder
the world would never know. The clock's pendulum swung deep
into the core of the earth. Hundreds of men that never aged
maintained the old clock's operation. The ice that blanketed
the mountain melted into the earth becoming twin falls that
moved giant wheels, in turn, driving juggernaut gears. Walkways
cobwebbed a labyrinth of pistons and cogs. Age-old generators
hummed and sparked with ancient power, illuminating unforgiving
crags and clefts in stone. Without this clock, the planet
would not move on its axis. The tides would no longer wane
nor wave. There would be no past and no future. Only
a static and perpetual present marked by ice and darkness.
At least, that's what God told the man who built the clockworks.
happened here then? And Jim - time to update your website
love Amanda Conner... Lately seen
inking Jimmy Palmiotti on Pro, starring a hooker-turned-reluctant-superhero,
it's always refreshing to remember she got her start on
a Barbie comic. Now, what would happen if they let the Ennis/Palmiotti/Conner
team loose on that little property? Who'll bid for the licence?
