    Movies ALWAYS help the sales of trades. Anyone that says movies don't help the sales of comics is an idiot. They just don't help comic shops and single issue sales, because guess what, most people don't even know they HAVE a local comic shop.

    I wonder if Starlin gets royalties for either Essential book. Hopefully he does for at least Infinity Gauntlet. It would be nice if Marvel had to pay him something for all the money they're making off his creation.

    If Starlin is getting a slice then it looks like the Kirby's should get a slice of that too for Thanos

    "Kirby had done the New Gods, which I thought was terrific. He was over at DC at the time. I came up with some things that were inspired by that. You'd think that Thanos was inspired by Darkseid, but that was not the case when I showed up. In my first Thanos drawings, if he looked like anybody, it was Metron. I had all these different gods and things I wanted to do, which became Thanos and the Titans. Roy took one look at the guy in the Metron-like chair and said : "Beef him up! If you're going to steal one of the New Gods, at least rip off Darkseid, the really good one!" Comic Book Legends Revealed #266 | Comics Should Be Good! @ Comic Book Resources

    If Kirby's estate got a slice of every comic character inspired by his work they would own Marvel AND DC.

    There's inspired by and there's copying. Guess which one this is?

    Inspired by. Thanos does have a resemblance to Darkseid, but as characters they are very, very different.

    Did you read the poster you previously quoted? Where Starlin started out copying one Kirby character and the editor told him, "if you're going to steal Kirby, at least steal Darkseid"?
