A Publishing Deal, Uncovered

It’s unusual for comic book creators to talk about their pay situations. It’s not the done thing. And then it sometimes it gets too much and it explodes everywhere, injuring various passer bys. Look forward to a piece on just such an incident tomorrow.

But then John Byrne has never really cared for the done thing. Talking about his IDW work of late, such as Next Men, Cold War and High Ways, he writes;

I have waived my page rate and first publication royalties on all my books at IDW, to make it easier on their corporate wallets. I get only the royalties from the trade paperbacks and other reprints.

IDW have been very good about making sure they pay me what they owe me (as distinct from a certain other “small” company I could mention), so I trust them.

Let the “small” company speculation begin!
