Marvel or DC doesn't have to ask fan permission to reprint their fan commission

THE WAR OF THE REALMS (George Perez cover) (Apr 2019)
Marvel Comics
I was under the impression that Marvel or DC had to ask the fan who commissioned the artist... but apparently, not true according to Robert F, who had his Jim Steranko art used, but was not asked or notified. Imagine one day you go to the comic store and saw your commission on a comic book cover and had no idea how it got there?

Legally, I guess they don't have to pay or ask permission... but it doesn't make it right.

I've read an interview with George Perez a long time ago, that he stated that DC and Marvel grant him permission to draw their characters (even if he created them?), but those artwork must remain private and not be printed in a publication.

Anyway, I think all the fans who got their art used, I'm sure they're happy to learn that the artists gets paid again... and it just comes down to doing right to the creators.

Cap by the great Jim Steranko! This image is copyright to Mr Steranko and is shown here with his permission.

I contacted Mr. Steranko about this as I had heard he was accepting commissions. He quickly replied and we set something up. Mr Steranko was the ultimate professional and he kept me informed of the progress of the piece all along the way. The time lapse between the initial inquiry and the completion and shipment of the piece was less than 8 weeks which is ridiculously fast. It has always been a dream to own something done by Jim and I was not disappointed in the art itself (which will hang in my new office) or by the way I was treated. It was a GREAT transaction. I want to thank Mr. Steranko again (Love the ART!) and I also want to point out that I have received permission to show this in my CAF.

I just saw that this is now one of the variant covers for Captain America 695!

The War Of The Realms George Perez variant cover

THE WAR OF THE REALMS (George Perez cover) (Apr 2019)
Marvel Comics
The War Of The Realms is coming out April 2019 with a George Perez variant cover. Personally speaking, I don't like how Marvel is just re-using these fan commissions (this one was done in 2009). The art is great, don't get me wrong, but they aren't meant for covers. George used to do "cover quality" commissions, but these are just Marker & Pencil tones. Anyway, I guess it's better to see George's art in modern comics rather than nothing... just my two cents.

Media Release
-- The War Of The Realms is coming…and no corner of the Marvel Universe will be untouched! Today, Marvel is excited to release two new stunning variant covers: one by artist George Perez (with colors by Jason Keith) and one by Ryan Ottley (with colors Nathan Fairbairn).

NEW TEEN TITANS #2 (Dec 1980)
DC Comics
Ok , I have spent almost all of my day off trying to figure this out , I asked Marv, he said to ask you! Is Starfire left or right handed ?

George Perez answers: Even though I never actually had Kory writing anything (since we never established if her kissing Dick gave her the ability to write as well as speak English) the arm band on her left arm indicates that she’s likely left handed.

Revista ACCION #1903 (March 2019) features a report on Titans.

Reportaje: Titans 
Recientemente en Netflix se ha estrenado, por fin en nuestro país, Titans, la primera serie del servicio de streaming de DC en Estados Unidos, DC Universe, que presenta a un grupo de personajes legendarios en los cómics de la compañía, los nuevos titanes que Marv Wolfman y George Pérez convirtieron en obra cumbre del medio en los ochenta. No era sencillo estar a la altura, ni igualar lo que hemos visto en otras series basadas en cómics, de la competencia o de la propia DC… Pero Titans ha superado todas las expectativas y se ha convertido en una de las mejores series de superhéroes de la historia. Sin lugar a dudas.
