Frunking Disney, how many stories have I heard of artists getting burned by the mouse.

I'm sure Walt is spinning in his grave.

Nah, Walt was pretty big into making endless piles of money.

Do you know anything regarding his struggle to be paid as an artist in his early years?

He was a f**king sellout who made war propaganda and testified against unions before HUAC. Have some perspective before you go defending a dead rich guy who never cared about your feelings. Disney hasn't turned any corners. They've always been like this.

No need to be a dickhead, I said I was a bit hazy on his early years but I was simply refering to this.

"Disney found his first major success with the creation of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. Disney's character Oswald was plenty lucky, becoming a huge star in one-reel animation, but Disney himself would find his luck had run out. Traveling to New York to renegotiate his contract, he discovered that his producer had taken his team of animators from under him and that he no longer had any legal rights to Oswald the Lucky Rabbit."

I'm certainly no expert I just thought this situation was a bit similar.

I refuse to purchase any Alien/Predator comics under the Disney/Marvel banner.

I've been reading the Dark Horse Comics for near 30 years. It was a good run...
