Oh, Archie

Following up on Dan’s post on the MoCCA Archie show from last week, I wanted to draw your attention to two related links.

First, Tom Spurgeon agrees with Dan, and today does a nice job of clearly presenting the issue. (Incidentally, he also put up a post collecting all of his 2009/10 “Holiday Interviews” with critics, including contributions from four of your favorite Comics Comics bloggers.)

Second, Bob Heer (whose Kirby and Ditko blogs I’ve enjoyed for years, without realizing until today that he is Jeet’s brother!) has written a long post tackling a related ethical issue: whether or not the artists who created so many recently republished classic comics are being paid royalties.

At the risk of being accused of putting my head in the sand, I’d say that’s kind of important. What would Siderman do?

    I was at the show the second week in December, and there were credits on the wall on cards with attributions. What is going on here ? There is alot of wrong information floating about.

    I would be thrilled to be corrected on that. I think my post was a lot more than credit on the walls, but if credit is posted, then great.

    Hey Dan,
    Your post was about more than credit on the walls – but what goes on at Archie and what goes on at MoCCA are 2 different things. I think MoCCA dealt with this correctly – albeit a few weeks late – but there may be reasons for that. The Archie situation is a different issue.
