  1. Please correct me if I’m wrong here, but isn’t the Shadowline deal the SAME as the Image deal? They publish your book, take a flat fee for their costs, but leave it up to you to market and push them, and then you can take whatever profits are made by them, no?

  2. Yes, it’s the same as the Image deal. Unfortunately, I can’t get into the specifics of the contract, but if all you had to pay was printing cost, it would be a fantastic deal. But that’s not the way it is.

    My friend, you would be shocked how many Image books don’t break even.


  3. Suddenly Kirkman’s call to arms is kinda looking like a fool’s goal. I guess that is his problem with Marvel and not with anyone else particularly.

  4. Not necessarily. Kirkman’s call-to-arms was specifically leveled at established “big name” Marvel creators. In other words, creators with an established fan base.
