Alliance Chat 21

Welcome to the Alliance Chat: where no topic has gone before!

In this podcast, we’re chatting about… well, Byron’s ranting about an incident he encountered on Deviant Art and we all weigh in whether it’s good to vent/rant on Social Media or not. Plus, we talk about how some studies are showing how Digital Comics are actually helping the sale of traditional comics.

  1. Byron I for one will miss you at Deviantart, not everybody is the same there there is good/ great artist who use it but the clue is in the name. (and for the record I looked at the art of the guy who was ragging you and a spider having a heart attack glued to a pencil would look better than what that guy draws.) thanks for the pod cast

  2. Was there a story about Marvel low-balling oversea artists? I remember hearing something about that a couple of years ago, but I thought Marvel said that all new artists, US or other countries, were paid the same rate. I was looking for some news stories, but couldn’t find anything.


      The Filipino government approves of outsourced talent banks, and goes on to list their clients. Marvel and DC and Disney are some of them.

      It’s not common practice, since a large number of titles are creator-owned, but for some titles that need the extra hands on deck, the Big-Two will often get fill-ins to take care of issues. This has been going on for a few years now. It’s just not really talked about a lot because apparently everyone does it in some fashion, and because comics aren’t as big of a medium as movies or TV.

      I would assume the pay rate is NOT the same unless they were put on the Big Two payroll.
