The Man Who Sold the World

Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta.

It was a wonderful day for comic books this Thursday, February 9th, 2012. Marvel Comics, upon triumphantly defending their title against the evil creator of Ghost Rider, Gary Friedrich, decided to take a victory lap by pressing their countersuit for $17,000–literally suing him for drawing his own creation their legally-won property.

Here’s the low-down on how the House of Ideas put Friedrich in his place: http://ohdannyboy.blogspot.com.au/2012/02/gary-friedrich-enterprises-llc-et-al-v.html

 

I have to tell you, DC Comics is looking like straight up punks by comparison for their relatively soft approach to spoilsport Alan Moore who keeps saying mean things to them about their brilliant exploration of the Watchmen brand which they graciously permitted him to create own associate with for a while.

    I think that photo is actually apropos of your blog! It’s about taking ownership of your work. I don’t see what’s wrong with signing your shit? What? Why not?

      Yeah, that whole “you look full of yourself if you sign your art” irked me. Besides that, I don’t understand why every little thing one decides to do needs to be read into. I.E., you sign your work, so you’re full of yourself; you don’t sign your work, so you have no self-esteem. It’s such a non-issue!
