  • AnonymousSo is Image the only publisher you don't have issues with? Would you ever work with Oni or First Second?
  • royalboiler

    My main deal with Image is that they are in a unique position now where Image central—-(Image is split into other branches too—Shadowline, top cow, Skybound etc.) under Stephenson they are putting out books that have a lot of eyes on them. and they treat me amazingly well and let me do essentially whatever I want to. Sooo —my end of Image is as good as I make it. They are the ideal place for me to do the work that I want to do & pay my rent off of it.

    and yeah, I’ve been pretty public about the work there that I don’t like— mark Millar books with all these amazing artists working on his sub-par scripts or that clown Straczynski who some how manages to put out some of the ugliest looking books at a company with the best production people I’ve ever worked with.  

    I did work for Oni in the past and they’re in a less blessed position than Image as far as sales - I do love 6th gun 

    First 2nd is frustrating  to me in that I feel like their model takes these amazing creators off of shelves for years. So you get a guy like Paul Pope spending 6 years on battling boy—and then when it comes out it’s in a tiny paper back.(I think Pope comics work best GIANT) I feel like that works best if you’re Craig Thompson and your book gets the level of impressive production work on it that his Habibi got. 

    Maybe that’s not a deal but I really enjoy going to the comic store and seeing new comics to read every month.

    That said I did really enjoy Walker bean, Delilah Dirk, Boxers and Saints, Zita Spacegirl and a lot of other books they’ve got.

    I’m reallly looking forward to my pal Farel’s The Wrenchies.—that they’re putting out. 

    and there’s lots of other publishers that I love, Antarctic press, radio Comix, Peow, Decadence,nobrow, Self Made Hero & Blank Slate Books & Koyama

    I’m really not trying to shit on any publishers,(aside from the usual) I just like talking about how I see things. I’m glad DH does what they do, I think Fanta is needed and vertigo (as much as I’m cool devaluing their place in comics) is better healthy and here than not.
