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

    UPDATE: In the case of Jim Steranko, I believe he was providing Captain America commissions to Marvel to fulfill his variant covers contract for covers from 2016 to 2017. It's probably the case that Marvel did not know these were fan commissions. I'm not sure if Steranko extended his variant cover contract, but you can read about the press release here:

    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 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).
