Acclaimed Mage and Grendel creator Matt Wagner receives his first substantial, heavily-illustrated, career-spanning interview in January 1994's Comics Journal. Only here will you find out the whys and hows of Wagner's success — from his first Comico Primer work to feature projects such as Doctor Mid-Nite and... Mage II?!? You've met Tom Tomorrow through his strip This Modern World — which appears in alternative weeklies throughout America — but you haven't really gotten to know him until you've read him interviewed by Journal editor Gary Groth. Plus, meet the artist who drew the critically-acclaimed Kings in Disguise comic book for Kitchen Sink Press, Dan Burr; his sketchbook appears in this issue, with a selection of images both profound and witty. And as usual, The Comics Journal features virtually the only investigative news source in comic books; the only critical, in-depth reviews; the controversial letters column "Blood and Thunder"; and "Hit List" and "Cool Comics Shops," the guide to the best comics and comic shops out there.
