More Disney/Marvel News

So while fandom is still having some fun with the Disney engulfment of Marvel py posting pics (here), (here), and (here), I’m getting news from other quarters that Disney is already putting down it’s Iron boot on the industry. As I hear it Disney is having stuff removed from eBay — sketches people do of Marvel characters. these images are already being pulled & accounts suspended for a week.

This was reported to me by a cartoonist friend of mine. I can only assume that more of these type of corporate shenanigans will occur. I can only imagine what it will do at conventions.

Tony Isabella has a few thoughts on the matter in his most recent column. While he doesn’t know any more than me (and admits as much in his column), he is always an entertaining read.
