DC Comics Seeks To Prevent Yale Stewart's Money-Making JL8 Wallpapers?

Okay, this is when the story goes to a new level.

We have covered Yale Stewart's confessions and apologies regarding sending intimate photos of himself to women who were not exactly appreciative of them.

One aspect that has been mentioned is asking how Yale Stewart was able to create his Little League and JL8 webcomics, in prime violation of DC Comics trademarks and get a Harvey nomination along the way, even sell original artwork and digital wallpaper images to raise money for charities. And now, he'd gone official, with Capstone hiring him to write Superman children's books using official DC licenses.

And the truth is, DC Comics turned a blind eye to these activities, because they liked them, they like Yale, they liked what he was doing – and feared a backlash, even within their own walls, if they did anything like sent a Cease And Desist letter.

Well, in the light of recent events, it's felt that that publicity backlash might not be as strong as it was before.

I'm told from internal DC sources that DC Comics will be taking action against Yale Stewart's sales, even those used to raise money for good causes. And that it's quite the talk of the DC offices.

I'm not sure, even now however, that they've done their sums right on that one.
