 :) There may be a Washington Post article coming too. I passed on everything to them. So hopefully they'll pick it up too.

A reporter got hold of me wanting to know more bout how was going to tell my child bout Chadwick Boseman's death. Which honestly not okay with being asked that. Too personal.

Media roundup, not including the Observer article above:

Wow!

I love you Marvel but we all sometimes need tough love.  I hope this is an opportunity for corporate growth for Marvel and they take ownership for their mistake.

Now that this is getting more ground. I feel like it could be the start of something. And hope that Marvel does admit their mistake and corrects it.

If have the chance, keep spreading the word.

One of the best ways to send this message to Marvel is don't buy it as judge death suggested. Its like voting. Your purchase is your vote. I also think posting on Lands page is an excellent idea. This way fans who may not know this become aware of this.

Oh don't worry, I wasn't gonna buy it anyway  :D

This is brave for AVP Galaxy to address this issue and I would say very commendable.

I agree. I hope Galaxy continues to signal boost this issue here and across social media. This is a story that deserves to stay in the limelight until a resolution is reached.

Something I'm seeing on Twitter is concern for the personnel being anthologized in this book not receiving any kind of payment. Am I wrong in that the writers and artists should never expect that to begin with because the properties aren't owned by them anyway?

I'm kind of a noob with comics, as I've only read the A/P books and tend to order them online in TPB format. What does direct market mean? Obviously, if I was able to get this book, I would want the Mark Nelson cover. Does direct market mean I can only get that book in person at a few comic book stores?

Depending on contracts they might get something, they might not. It's all a bit inconsistent. Marvel though has no reason to pay any of the former creatives which is unfortunate but as I've seen one of them post, just really how could they have known the books would be getting reprints let alone decades later or even being owned by a different company. So some making these contracts probably just didn't count on anything like this even being a factor.

Direct market is your comic shop, book stores, or even Amazon. Basically just retailers who get the "new" product. Second hand retailers would be like Ebay or a garage sale, in some cases a used book store.

Amazon is not the direct market.  Direct market is as you said, comic shops and online retailers who are primarily dealing with comics. I have been buying from amazon as my primary source of Comic collections for 17 years and they have never stocked DM variants.
