The Journal presents three big interviews drawing on all corners of the alternative comics field. We catch cover artist Peter Bagge at the crossroads of his comics career — he just ended the incredibly popular Hate: what's next for this fan-favorite creator? We also track down the finest young talent in editorial cartoons — Ted Rall — and enjoy a razor-sharp exchange with one of society's finest commentators about his satirically-charged newspaper work and his laugh-a-minute comics albums and longer stories like "The Worst Thing I've Ever Done." Our interview with underground legend Spain Rodriguez, begun in issue #204, concludes in this issue. Finally, we corner Vertigo mainstay Peter Milligan in the midst of his 1998 re-emergence into popular comics consciousness. Plus all the jokes, hard-nosed news, and reviews you've come to expect from the award-winning magazine!
