Spurgeon on Great Power and Responsibility -- Awesome essay by Tom Spurgeon up today at his Comics Reporter website, specifically on the manner in which the comics industry has misused and sbused its most valuable resource, its creative people.

A canny choice of cover art to illustrate the piece with, too. Herb Trimpe, how much did he get from the X-Men movies, do you think? I've long said that the guy who drew the first Wolverine story should have gotten something out of the enormous wealth generated from those films. How much do you think he got?

Given the situation as it has existed for years, it's no mystery at all why the most popular creators in corporate comics today almost never generate compelling new characters for Marvel or DC. You'd have to be out of your fucking mind to do so.
