Marvel and DC would crush a Union in no time. Simply because artist are a dime a dozen and can get replaced. The Old guys got Royally screwed working freelance with basically no benefits.Basically they had to strike tough deals to get a decent wage. Simon and Kirby went to National and worked out a deal to get a combined $500 Now the top guys get a contract and get payed well based on their track success.....

>I think the reason why Mandrake has been underappreciated is because his art style is geared more toward the horror/weird science stories.
True; and he has a weird etherial look to all his stuff which doesn't work for all stories. I remember thinking his stuff looked "soft" during his Grimjack run. (Looking at it now I suspect part of that was 'cos Truman is a damned tough act to follow.)
