It seems like these days the legal spats between creators and publishers, or creators themselves are taking up all the headlines on comic websites.
Gary Friedrich is being counter-sued by Marvel after failing to win a share in the rights to Ghost Rider. The Kirby and Siegel families continue their pusuits and Archie Comics is doing battle in court against its very own CEO.
Seriously, at this rate there is bound to be a Law & Order spinoff show set entirely in the comics world. Law & Order: Comic Intent.
Come to think of it, I would watch that show…
Any way, in the case presented here, we see Tony Moore and Robert Kirkman going head to head over alleged misdeeds when it comes to The Walking Dead. Like most people, I don’t know much outside of what’s been published on the web, but I can tell you what makes me the saddest about the whole situation: That Kirkman and Moore grew up together. They were childhood friends, whose relationship has soured to the point of litigation.
Hopefully they can resolve it (holding hands if at all possible) amicably and maybe their friendship can be spared. It’s a small industry, getting smaller by the day and given his public fallout with Rob Liefeld recently, one can’t help but wonder if everything is okay over in Camp Kirkman.
Today’s page was legally obtained from Paul Salvi:
Paul Salvi is an attractive, successful artist. He lives in a nice part of Baltimore, contemplates suicide very infrequently and draws the webcomic The Line.
Take care, folks! See you here Wednesday!
