OK, I’m just going to call this out here. We’ve got small presses doing comics and kickstarter projects crowing about their wonderful treatment of freelancers, and how they are paying people (WOW) like $100-135 per page. How generous!

When I wrote that I was getting $50 per page back in the 1980’s for doing the story, and fully rendered art and painted covers on A DISTANT SOIL, everyone was horrified.

People, don’t you realize that adjusted for inflation, this is the crap money these small presses are paying today? And most of these creators nowadays are getting that for full color art and story?

Adjusted for inflation, Siegel and Shuster got a helluva lot more than that for Superman.

The more you know…
