SCOOP: DC Digital Compensation Payments Detailed

The letter from Jim Lee and Dan DiDio to DC freelancers detailing digital comic payments has now gone out. It reads;

This letter is the fulfillment of our promise, made in those earlier announcements, to provide you with the specifics of our talent compensation plan for works published digitally. in so doing, we become the first major publisher in the digital comics arena to announce a participation plan for all talent, thereby setting the industry standard in that regard.

Note the change in language, the includion of the word “all” before talent, which wasn’t there before. Marvel claimed they had done it first, days before, but Marvel’s letter only went out to exclusive comic book creators, everyone else receiving it the week after.

We are pleased to announce that for every work published by DC in a digital format, writers and pencilers will each receive additional compensation equal to 5% of DC’s net receipts derived from the sale of that work. Inkers will receive 3% of DC’s net receipts. Those of you who have a creator-owned deal in place with us will receive a creator royalty of 3% of DC’s net receipts.

So those are the figures. But are they really announcing “a participation plan for all talent?” I understand that DC colourists will not be receiving any such additional compensation for digital exploitation of their work.

But Marvel colourists… will.
