Creators Of Constantine To Receive No Payment For The TV Option

Swamp Thing 37 page 3 panel 2Steve Bissette, co-creator of the John Constantine character, states that;”

As of this morning, it appears there will be NO payment to the Constantine creators for this series.

This option apparently rolled out of the already-paid-for option for the CONSTANTINE movie in the 1990s. Thus, we’ll only see $$ waaaay down the road, it appears, IF this series makes it to being a series. If it makes money. If it trickles down.

Will update you if/as we learn more.

But we will see $$ from any comics/graphic novels sold from the spillover of interest, FYI.

Hollywood accounting: gotta love it.

He added;

“an announcement of a plan” requires, in place, an OPTION—hence, my posting the facts as I know them this AM. Option, here, emerges from the prior Option that led to the movie (which we were paid our share of once there WAS a movie; how it works in the Warner/DC world).

John Constantine was created by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette and John Totleben, as he first appeared in Swamp Thing #21. Moore has waived any such fees to be paid to Steve and John. But in this case it seems he might as well not have bothered.
