I'm still confused as to what is REALLY going on with this property and the dispute between Neil and Todd. Conventional wisdom is that Todd is using MM as a bargaining chip to get Neil to sign off on the stuff he created for SPAWN, but I don't think this has been confirmed by euther party.
*IF* that is the case, then I think its a terrible thing to do. I've always thought Creators' Rights must go hand in hand with Creator's Responsibilities and were I to make a list of such Responsibilities, then Stewardship Of The Form of Comics would be high on the list. I consider MM to be a seminal work in the evolution of the Modern Superhero. *IF* it is reduced to being used as a bargaining chip, then that stinks.
Has there been any further discussion of DC/Vertigo publishing your Swamp Thing story?
Not anything meaninful. Maybe I'll try and collar Karen and Heidi in San Diego and see if we can get it rolling!
