damn, this is horrible to see. I'm sure it stings more for the ole Kirkman because they're childhood pals. but I feel ya, Ole Bearded One, I'm a musician and my main band-mates are old high school pals. most recently, shit has gotten a bit ugly because we've had some success on commercials and shows (they played our songs). I can only imagine the hoopla if our art was as appreciated as Kirkman's...
re: Tony Moore. I dunno, he seemed like an okay fella when I met him way back in like 05 here in Ohio. I don't do commissioned sketches by artists because they charge an arm and a leg, and I'd rather spend my money on drugs. I've always felt like Moore's clean-cut artistic approach didn't fit for TWD, and Adlard's truer, grittier style played more to the theme of the book
life's all about that bottom dollar, yeah? I think in this monetary battle between Kirkman and Moore, the only true loser are Indie comics, and more specifically creator-controlled/owned comics. that's the part that gets me
