For those who like following the internet trail of Platinum and Arcana, there’s a fun thread at the Digital Webbing Forums in which DJ Coffman (!), Andrew Foley, Lee Nordling and even Platinum’s Dan Forcey all take part.
In other recent Platinum news, Weird Adventures in Unemployment is finally online (above). You’ll recall that this is the webcomic which Mike Strang created, only to have it taken away from him after editorial differences. This was possible because he had signed a work for hire contract. There’s more on this on the Comixtalk forum where Strang addresses Brandon Carr, the cartoonist was was hired to actually execute the strip. (Platinum does credit Strang as the creator.)
Brandon, I hold no beef with you being a scab worker like the players of the 87′ NFL season.
Thank you acknowleding that this project wouldn’t have happend without me. Which also earned you a paycheck.
My critque of your work though stems from the fact that my intial vision was far more ambitious. Therefore my disapointment upon seeing this minimalistic rendition. We went from Clerks to Dilbert.
The moral, as always, SHOW YOUR CONTRACTS TO A LAWYER BEFORE YOU SIGN THEM!
