The Saga Of 'Said Writer'
Said Writer, decades ago, worked with an Artist and created a character. Over the years Said Writer has done everything in their power to reduce the Artists contribution in the creative process, to the point where the Artist produced their original character designs, to which Said Writer promptly labelled them as being possible fakes, then outright accusing the Artist of lying, thereby attacking the Artists reputation, the first time anybody had done such a thing to the Artist, who prides himself on his honesty. The Artist stood by his claims and had others attest to the veracity of his claims. Said Writer was mad because he had to share the small amount of royalties with the Artist, and felt that he, said Writer, should have all of the money and the Artist should have nothing. Naturally this is the Artists fault, not the publisher for changing the credit. Indeed Said Writer believes that the Artist and Publisher colluded, and still do, to remove his rightful credit from the character.
