Ghost of comics past

Me and my lady went out to coffee this morning and drew in my sketchbook.

Marian did the drawing on the right, wanting to leave while I took my sweet time.

in other news Marvel and DC seem to be having some bizarre contest on who can be shittier to the people who’ve done the best work for them.

Gary Friedrich is being forced to pay $17,000 in blood money to Marvel. Comics writer, Steve Niles has been graciously organizing a donation drive . Me and my pal Stokoe are selling off pages with the 100 % sales from the next 10 King City pages and next 10 Orc Stain pages going to the cause that Mr Niles is spearheading.

More on that here:

      Yup. I think the corporate ends of Marvel and DC are pretty shitty.

    ive been thinking about buying a page of your stuff for ages, and as keen as I am for the money to go to you, to support all your kickass endeavours, i do massively want to help and get behind this Marvel ridiculousness. Ill see where my money’s at. really well played for doing this though man, its awesome of you. the bottom end of comics is such a friendly place but Im hating the top end right now…

    this whole thing is awful. i’d say it’s unbelievable but it’s kind of believable, i’m not really surprised that it’s happening.

    I read that the Friedrich was selling prints of other creators’ work at conventions and that is what started the shit storm. I love to hate and rage against The Man just as much as the next guy, but I don’t know the whole story.

    • Brandon says:

      Even if that`s the case, I think it`s a bigger issue about how publishers treat the creators of the work. Just that the creator of something is assed out while his creation is pulling in serious money is a mess. It isn`t like this is a one time thing for them. they`ve been fucking over creators this is just the most recent one.

  10. Hi Brandon,

    Love that you take a serious stance on comics culture. we do too. Hope you get a chance to check out issue #2 of Rations magazine which takes a serious, but entertaining look at comics, graphic novels, and speculative fiction. It’s free to read online or download here: http://rationsmag.com/issue-02/

    I think you and your fans will like it.

    thanks,

    Oneil
