Jim Shooter shares an inside look at comics contracts
On his blog, former Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Jim Shooter has been discussing the possible effects of the Disney / Marvel merger. One of the ramifications being eyed is the possibility of Disney ending art return — the practice of returning original art to creators so they can collect it or sell it.
And, of course, we’ve already discussed here the possibility of the House of Mouse cracking down on convention sketches.
In furthering the conversation, Shooter has uploaded pages from a couple of contracts — from both Marvel and DC. Although they’re each about a decade old, they’re a pretty fascinating look at the inner world of print publishing.
