#85 - Litigious!
In the comic book industry, the fans are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the creators, who make comics; and the companies, who own and publish the comics. These are their stories.
If you've been on any of the comic book news sources or any social media sites in the past two weeks, then you're aware of the current legal battles of Gary Friedrich V. Marvel over the character Ghost Rider and Robert Kirkman V. Tony Moore over The Walking Dead. Needless to say, it's been an ugly couple of weeks and there's a virtual civil war brewing online as pro comics creators are taking sides. To make matters worse, Kevin Smith's reality show Comic Book Men premiered and the results were less than stellar.
Despite all the doom and gloom, we do manage to talk about some actual comics, including Batgirl, Catwoman, Justice League International and Winter Soldier.
Come to the Comic Book Cocktail Hour, a live Twitter chat with special guest, artist Dan McDaid.
