A question about the "retrospective" books that are published regularly, such as "Joe Sinnott: Embellishing Life" that caught my eye this month. When such volumes are published (about Marie Severin, Herb Trimpe, etc., etc.), or when IDW's artist editions are released, do these fine silver-age creators that we love receive any royalties? I like to think that they do because they were so frequently exploited during the silver age, and because these volumes contain many reprints of their artwork. Does anyone know? I'd probably buy even more of these volumes than I do currently if I was certain that these creators were receiving a "financial thank you" for their time in the trenches.For the most part, I think the answer is yes. It certainly is the case with every such book that TwoMorrows publishes. In the case of the Matt Baker book I co-edited, since Baker was long dead when we did the book, his step-brother and nephew received the payment Baker would have been offered. After Mike Wieringo passed away, we began giving his royalty payments for the Modern Masters book I did with him to the scholarship fund at SCAD that his brother Matt had set up in his name. After Nick Cardy died, we gave his royalty payments for the book I did with him to the Hero Initiative in Nick’s name. But you get the idea.
Great analysis, @nweathington.Thanks. But is he really dreaming/losing consciousness during those moments, or is he waking up/being knocked back to his senses during those moments, and becoming aware that what he’s seeing is merely a projection?
It's kind of odd how when Scot is dreaming, or unconscious, that his memories appear "glitchy," almost as if they're being broadcast.
