Hate!

I'm so tempted to just start replying to people on Scans Daily with random notes of "Icon hate!"

A) Because there are icons I actually hate out there.

B) I hate the pointless waste of someone feeling the need to just say "Icon love!" to random poster #238

Bombston

Thanks to Flickr, a handy guide has been put together in order to assist the Boston Police Department to identify items which are not bombs, for future reference.

And with stickers to make sure people know better!

Vado gave an update on Gargoyles, which has seen delays since it launched.

“Gargoyles we just mishandled from the get-go. On top of that, there’s just a real lengthy set of approvals that affects all the Disney comics that’s slowed them all down. For example, Gargoyles #3 has been done for three weeks, almost a month now, and we’re waiting for Disney to give us the go ahead to print it.”

Gargoyles #4, #5 and #6 will have a series of fill-in artists as SLG attempts to catch up.

When asked if Disney asks for a lot of changes, he said “Surprisingly no, but the process is not a quick one.” He said originally three people would review the comics before they were printed, but now around 10 people review them.

When asked why Disney licensed their characters to someone else instead of doing their own books, he said Disney benefits because they retain the rights to the comics that SLG creates without having to spend the money on staff and other costs associated with creating the comics.
