Jerry Ordway is a great artist, and I wish him all the best. It's a terrible situation, and it's happened to way too many good artists. I hope he can find a way to make things work out for him.
Despite this being an old, predictable story, I have to admit to being a little shocked to hear that the same thing happened to Curt Swan too. Curt Swan?!?!? DC should have installed him in a palatial villa with a full-time staff, like a Pope Emeritus.
