    Opinion noted.

    I would point out that one of the first things they are calling for is more people hired to their marketing departments. That’s a pretty important job, not the least bit simple, and probably the most significant part of anyone ever hearing about an Image book going to print. If someone considers that an inconsequential task, I don’t think there’s much more to discuss on the topic.

    These people calling for unionization are editors, graphic designers, and other production staff without whom Image would be able to stay in print, which allow the writers and artists to do their thing from someplace other than their basements. It’s all fine and well to be creative, but unless a creator can develop that into a production process for their audience they’re going to have a pretty hard time monetizing their creativity.
