DC Editor Jamie Rich Sent Tom King's Wife a Vision TPB Because Marvel Wouldn't

Earlier this month, we told you about the trouble superstar writer Tom King was having getting his hands on a copy of The Vision, a comic written by Tom King, with art by Gabriel Hernandez Walta and color art by Jordie Bellaire. Apparently, Marvel wouldn't send him a comp copy of the book. King tweeted:

Apparently, it's a common problem at Marvel, to the point where Bleeding Cool's own Rich Johnston has recommended creators buy their own when they're on sale for cheap.

Considering comic book publishers rely so heavily on creators to do their own promotion on social media, you'd think a few copies of the book they created would be a small price to pay. Well, at least one comic book publisher seems to agree, but it isn't Marvel. According to King, his wife finally got that Vision book after all, but it was King's editor at DC Comics, Jamie Rich, that sent it to her.

Well, at least somebody is paying attention.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
