World without Marvel and DC: Part 4

And last but not least, we come to the section on creators, and what they would have to deal with if DC and Marvel were to disappear.

Actually, I don't have much to say here that hasn't been said by smarter people all across comics fandom for the last quarter century.

Are you going to create a bill of rights for yourself?
Are you going to bargain for health benefits? A pension? Other items to prevent you from being another "oh, it was tragic what happened to him, after he created character X that was made into a film"?
Are you going to work primarily for yourself, or do corporate work? What are your long term career plans and how do you plan to achieve them in this environment?

Or in short, questions that too many comic creators have put off for far, far too long.

OK, that's it. Show's over. Hope you enjoyed. Please don't forget to include your thoughts.
