Fanboy Rampage: Erik Larsen and Brian Keene vs. Terrific Production LLC Over Creator Rights

Two fanboy rampages in one day? Give unto us thy clicks, dear readers!

If you haven’t been following the saga of Terrific Production LLC, here’s a brief rundown:

Andrew Rev’s Terrific Production LLC recently acquired the rights to Youngblood, a matter which Youngblood creator Rob Liefeld was not pleased with, causing Liefeld to drop any involvement with the property and Image to remove all Youngblood comics from digital storefronts. After a lengthy and oddball interview with Bleeding Cool’s own Rumourmonger-in-Chief Rich Johnston, Rev joined Twitter and began trolling Liefeld. Since then, Rev has been working to recruit comic book writers and artists to Terrific Production with a series of increasingly bizarre and outrageous tweets.

Now, Terrific has found itself in a war of words with award-winning novelist, comic book writer, and podcast host Brian Keene, though this feud itself spun out of one between Terrific and Image Comics founder Erik Larsen.

When Cody L White of Comic Watch responded with some sales stats, Larsen pointed out that Terrific’s antics are a feature, not a bug.

This prompted Larsen to respond:

Inspired by this exchange, Keene took to his own Twitter to offer a public service announcement.

Which prompted another series of exchanges between Keene and Terrific which we’ll present uninterrupted for your pleasure.

The saga, as always, continues.

Fanboy Rampage was a blog by Graeme “Graham” McMillan dedicated to the funniest, most ludicrous and most inappropriate comic book back-and-forths online. McMillan has moved on now, becoming a proper journalist for the likes of The Hollywood Reporter and Wired but he gave permission to Bleeding Cool to revive his great creation.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
