        and have no fricking clue about comic artists or anything that has to do with the industry beyond clickbait articles trying to sell $40 kickstarter comics by aging gen Xers who hire brazillians to draw their comics. There's maybe 4 people here who have actually gotten close enough in the industry to have an ear as to what's going on.

        It's not that's why comics is fricking dying. Not sure why some illustration agency is dropping all its clients all of a sudden factors into that though.

        Also why is this thread autists trying to derail whatever actual story there is here with stupid dick measuring about who is or isn't a "literally who"?

          Seems to be the opposite so far as I’m gleaning. Seems there was some fricky wucky with the payments and deliveries. I know so,e of these homosexuals lurk here but they’re all being pretty quiet.

        Getting some kind of government funding from Blackrock and ESG scores, right? Marvel and DC are in no way sustainable on their own. They would’ve been bankrupt over a decade ago without them.

        As for these little mysterious companies, maybe money laundering? How can one comic company employ all those “comic artists” yet nobody has heard or bought from them?

          They don't employ the artists, you spastic. It's just an art gallery, they sell original art on consignment.

      So from what I’ve seen there’s rumors of skimming off the top, as well as issues with delivering the art clients paid for. Most people who defected say that they’ll manage the unfulfilled orders as best they can

        This seems to be what is being implied between the lines with what some of the artists have been saying. Here's a quote from comic artist Yildray Cinar posted on facebook and referred in a comicsbeat article:
        >I am no longer represented by Cadence Comic Art. Inquiries regarding any unfulfilled orders should be directed to Cadence, as the artists lack involvement in their sales and fulfillment.

        At this point you may as well wait until an official story comes out. Usually if this many people aren't saying anything more than boilerplate then that means lawyers are involved.

      They could have, and should have, used a trusted third party who won’t engage in hand offs. Or ship with hard plastic inside the cardboard like slabs for comics. This raises the price however and most commissioned art is overpriced as it is. Beside the fact that they seem like they were dirtbag schemers and didn’t care about the art or customer experience.

      That being said, Comic Artists don’t seem realize that paintings from similarly well-known artists cost anywhere from 1200-1500 and up the more famous they are. charging 500-600 let alone more for uncolored linework of characters that show up in comics weekly and have millions of fan art pieces online that look just as good is frankly absurd.

      for many, the pieces (and their names) simply aren’t worth enough for them to have an art dealer, in all honesty. This is why many people have a significant other or kid (if they’re older) run that stuff like a family business. After the dealers cut you end up getting less than you would if you just took on the stress and effort of shipping them yourself.
