I really need to catch up on my DVR…

On the August 1 episode of Attack of the Show on G4TV, guest host Baratunde Thurston dropped some knowledge about how the creators of comics characters in blockbuster movies (including Thanos creator Jim Starlin and Bane creator Chuck Dixon) are/are not compensated for their work. It references one of The Beat’s many recent articles about these issues.

I still can’t embed G4 videos on WordPress, so check out the segment here.
