DC. I have an idea.
Instead of trying to cram and re-cram characters like Booster Gold down our throats over and over again, bring back your DCU Presents series. Only this time, just call it what it is: “DCU Retains Copyrights.” Put all those characters in that book and then A), we know to avoid it and B), you can protect and hang on to characters like Booster Gold, who I’m sure would be snapped up in a heart beat by… someone, if you were to go too long without publishing them.
Spare us the inevitable 9-12 issue ongoing that will be cancelled with as little fanfare as it’s inception.
Today’s page comes to us from our favourite Plastic, Richard Clark:
Born in a crossfire hurricane (actually Cleveland, OH), Richard P. Clark’s illustration career began in 1993 while still an undergraduate at The Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then, he’s worked for a wildly varied list of clients in several industries-among them HBO, Playboy, The Wall Street Journal and Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s been finding work again in the Comic Industry, including a recent job for Dark Horse providing finishes over Darick Robertson’s breakdowns for The Guild-Vork comic. He’s hoping this recent turn into the comic lane sticks as there are literally scores of stories he’d like to unleash on the world. Mr. Clark currently resides in Upstate NY after a 10-year tour of duty in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and a goofy dog named Barnaby.
Have a great weekend, friends!
