As the first webcomic talk I’ve felt compelled to write about in nearly two months, I felt it prudent to bring this up for discussion.
As someone who writes, draws, makes a website, answers customers and helps pack merch â€¦ I donâ€™t have much sympathy for striking writers. Want real royalties and freedom? LEAVE the studio system!
As a conversation starter that hopefully will not degenerate into the usual “You’re the bitch!/No, your mom is the bitch!” type webcomics arguments, I’m interested to see where those of you who fill the same shoes as Stevens (or more) fall on this debate. Do you side with the majority of the country in saying the writers deserve what they’re asking for, or is Stevens right in calling the writers out for wanting something they’re not entirely entitled to?
