EXCL. PREVIEW: Cross the Line in "Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows" #3
Okay, so the fact corporations suck is not surprising…but since I just spent this morning giving both fans and U.S. media corporations a fair shake, as it were, in my column, I’m feeling rather chagrined when I blog-hop this afternoon and find that Lea Hernandez is reporting on the latest (& truly hideous) Tokyopop contract with creators here.Â Christopher Butcher weighs in here, and Bryan Lee O’Malley takes a stand here.
The long and short of it is that Tokyopop wants to swindle young, impressionable comic-book creators out of their creative property and also manages to insult the French for having IDEAS. You know, ideas that influenced modern jurisprudence. Dear lord.
I don’t like to be negative, in general, in this forum, but man. This whole thing just reeks.
