Readers of my personal blog will be familiar with my feelings on copyright maximalism. Basically, I think it does our country and our society a huge disservice to have copyrights last so long. When works go into the public domain, they are available for society to remix and reuse the same way that Disney has made so much money reinterpreting stories collected by the Brothers Grimm.

Will and Kurt are taking a character, Crom the Barbarian, who has fallen out of copyright, and resurrecting him with new stories. This is a work of passion for Kurt, who grew up with these stories. Instead of being lost to the dustbin of the past, these stories will be reborn!

Eric was an avid comic reader in the late 1990s. He then took a hiatus from comic reading until 2011 when he dove head-first back into comics. Back in the 90s Eric only read Marvel comics although he loved Batman: The Animated Series. After a 2 year dalliance (2011-2013) with Marvel and DC, Eric now almost exclusively reads Image Comics.
