Nick Spencer pans DC's treatment of freelancers

The comics writer Nick Spencer says something worthy of note:

And that includes people who used to work for them years before who are getting shafted and shunned, and Time Warner does nothing about it. Very little of Chuck Dixon's Robin and Birds of Prey runs were ever published in trades and may now be out of print, and more recently, a planned paperback for the first several issues of Impulse was cancelled too. I think there was supposed to be a second paperback collecting more of Infinity Inc, and that was cancelled too. All because, I suspect, they don't want to pay any royalties to Mark Waid and Roy Thomas. And they're clearly so begrudging, they don't recognize how it only serves to hurt them when they could have a chance of making money off of that stuff.

I just hope Spencer is aware that if DC can be unfair to their contributors, so too can Marvel.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent.
