Comics Arts Conference Session #3: When Cease and Desist Becomes Change and Discuss: How Lawyers Can Publicly Impact the Comic Diegesis

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

James R. Thompson (Duke University), Daniel Barer (Pollak, Vida & Barer), and Alex Grand (Comic Book Historians Group) look at lawyers' impact on comics narratives, such as the forced pantsing of Howard the Duck by Disney, Marvel's cease-and-desist demands on Cerebus and Dave Sim's inclusion and discussion of those demands within the comic, and Gerber and Kirby's Destroyer Duck. These cease-and-desist letters broke the fourth wall in a way that is now unavoidable, given the public awareness of legal machinations due to the weaponization of social media and the internet.
