Peter Laird, Dave Sim, and TMNT #8...
« on: September 18, 2008, 03:54:13 PM »
Below is a letter from Dave Sim dealing more with JUDENHASS and the mainstream bookstore market. In Dave’s letter, "Steve" is the great Steve Bissette. Included with Dave’s letter was a correspondence between Dave and (TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES co-creator) Peter Laird concerning the reprint rights to TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #8. For the record, Peter has given me permission to post his letter to Dave. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #8 featured the appearance of Dave’s character, Cerebus.

Dave and Peter’s agreement seems very fair to me. It reminds me of "The Kenmore and Nihilist-Man Team-up story" contract that Brandon J. Carr and I came up with… minus the issue of money, of course.

Also, if I understand Dave correctly, he is saying in his letter that anti-Semitism is inherently linked to Christianity. Being a Christian myself, I see the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as the payment, the sacrifice, to all of the world’s sins. I do not point the finger at any one group for the death of Jesus. He came and died for all of us, so we are all responsible for His death.

I posted these letters on the Creator’s Rights’ website.
