Is The Digital World Making A Fool Of The Comic Art Industry?

So the real question here is, “Did the Digital World Steal My Soul?” To this, I say NO. Did the Comic Book Industry or Cartoons Steal Your Soul? Come on, guys.

Well, okay…the Cartoonists in the Digital World stole your soul, but not that of all the other creators who have built a lot of their careers on your work. These guys didn’t start in the “digital” world. When did they take you as their slaves? Why have you never heard about them? It’s because they are too damned good to bother with.

Thomas Alanson

Thomas Alanson is the son of the comic book legend and editor of Wildcat, Thomas Alan Bates. He was born in 1968 in Chicago. In fact, Thomas Alanson got his start at the age of ten in school.
