I hate bad news in the industry, as it seems to tarnish the wonderfulness that is the four=color world.  But, I do understand that deals, contracts, and entities may not always be that fair in the long run, which requires those that feel wronged to seek retribution.  Such is the case with Radical Publishing co-founder David Elliott, who has filed suit against parent company Blatant Entertainment over wages and lost income.

Elliott says he’s the co-founder, co-publisher, and former editor-in-chief of the company and its various publishing efforts, and that it terminated him in April. Elliott alleges that Blatant hasn’t given him his full salary, failed to properly credit him on several projects including Hercules and Aladdin, and is exploiting properties without consideration where Elliott owns a portion of the copyrights.

The allegations go on to say that Blatant may not even have proper documentation to show chain of ownership, which could later put the kibosh  on future movie deals that Radical is currently working on.
