Piracy trumps obscurity again
Here’s a short illustrated story for you:
Steve Lieber is a comic book artist. He drew Underground, a graphic novel (written by Jeff Parker, drawn by Steve, and colored by Ron Chan). The story follows Park Ranger Wesley Fischer as she tries to save Stillwater Cave – and then has to save herself.
On Sunday (3 days ago, as of time of writing) a fan posted scans of every single page onto 4chan (EDIT: archive of the 4chan thread on Steve Lieber’s site), a well-known discussion forum.
I'm calling BS on this. Without a X axis to this graph and then an A/B test where only "a limited excerpt" is released on 4Chan can you claim this was good for the author.
If someone posted my entire content online i'd have a problem with it.
BTW how come no link to the Boing Boing article, was it buried or a minimal post etc?
