Don’t get any cuter than this.
Some readers don’t like his smart-ass attitude, and some creators don’t like… that his paychecks are bigger than theirs. All of which is absolute crap, but that’s another story.
Millar has all my respect for things like the text following. He posted this on his message board, discussing further…
Decades on, my generation of creators is hyper-aware of what happened to the people who really built the industry. The very small handful of people who built pretty much everything that pays for all those big offices around the world for the major companies. But even then I still see this happening. One reasonably well-known and sleazy company, for example, has a deal where every new creator-owned series is owned entirely by the writer and the artist is work for hire. Thus, if a movie gets made and someone makes one, two or three million dollars from the proceeds, the artist gets nothing but a cut of publishing.
Other thing I’ve seen is new creations unevenly split. In rights terms, 50/50 is the only way to go, but I’ve seen this split on big projects 75/25 and even 90/10 among the writer and artist. This rarely gets reported because artists, even more than writers, tend to be gentle souls, crushed by their next deadline and never quite finding the time or the energy to make a fuss. But I see all sorts of stuff going on now like front-loading money from a movie deal into a writer’s first draft of a screenplay money too. That’s a particularly sneaky one. Say, for example, the rights to a movie is going for a million dollars. That should be half a million each. But some very dodgy deals can be cut where the screenplay is 500K and the rights are 500 between both, the artist just getting half of what he’s due and the screenplay binned immediately and always planned to be binned with the writer recouping 75% of the pot.
What I mean by all this is that people should keep their eyes open. This isn’t an industry where our work is worth pennies anymore. These ideas can be used in endless mediums and are the reason the Big Two have vast Manhattan and Los Angeles offices. At the same time, writers and artists have to be fair with each other. Anything that isn’t 50/50 isn’t such a good deal. I think it’s fair enough for a writer to exclusively take a producer fee in the same way that an artist could take a design fee because, for example, I spend easily 5-10 hours a week on producer calls, watching casting sessions or even disappearing for a week entirely for story meetings or early edit screenings. I still split my producer fees 50/50 with the artists as a personal choice, but don’t judge the others who don’t as it really is a distinct deal from the rights and a different job.
I definitely should take this to heart in the future… Mark Millar is awesome.
Sandra as a booth babe in a convention where she’s wearing a Dirndl? What convention indeed.

A little post to celebrate the release of “Agito Cosmos” Volume 2.
French comic-book illustrated by Fabien Mense (who also works for animation industry - see previous posts about his designs on Hotel Transylvania).
Story by Olivier Milhaud.
bleh French artists *quits drawing forever*
Oh wait I’m a french artist. *keeps drawing to try and reach their level??*
Don’t lie! You are at that level!! I dream of reaching even just 1/15th of that level!!!
Forgot to mention, with the success of the Marry Me Kickstarter, I’m gonna try my darndest to go to SDCC next year for the launch of vol.2. So, I’m hoping to hang out with some online friends at the con, coffee, dinner, drink and draw and whatnots as well… so, yeah, my american convention plan for next year all set.
DC has unveiled its exclusives for SDCC. You can see them all at USA Today but I’ll show the one that I’ll be getting. Oh yes, I will.
Behold the ESSBUFFS!
It’s pricey - $49.99 but I simply must have it. Of course, I’d rather have an ongoing series with these three by Lauren Faust, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. How about a digital comic? Anyone?
I want these!!!
Here we go, some photos that don’t involve a mirror and visible technology! More info on this costume can be found here!
This shoot was a bit of a bust, but it was better then nothing. I do fancy a few of the pictures from it, which i’ll try to post over the next few days.
Also I’m kind of amazed of the response my test shots had - the positive feedback was really lovely so thanks a bunch for that!
This looks freakin’ amazing! Just beautiful yo!
