Creator’s Rights

Filed under: Uncategorized — M Kitchen @ 10:03 am

Back in 1988 a group of comic creators got together to discuss the issue of Creator’s Rights.

The summit was instigated by Dave Sim in an attempt to define the ethical boundaries in selling his first printing of High Society direct, bypassing the distributor.

As a result of the summit, Scott McCloud came up with a “final draft”.

In 2005 Al Nickerson jump started the discussion again, and created the Creator’s Rights Forum.

After spending almost two weeks of reading through the posted articles, I jumped into the discussion, with a Creative Stream Analysis using Spawn as an example.

One month later, Dave Sim responded.
How cool is that?

However I decided a few weeks ago to start taking advantage of the time sitting idle while the CGI machine makes it’s calculations, and pull out an old fashioned sketch pad.

Here’s a sharpie quickie: Wolverine
