HURT COMICS: I Blew Up the Internets

hurt comics code authority
My post yesterday about TP's newest shite contract made the Internets go kablooey.
I have been saying since Rising Stars that TP's contracts were lousy, so I'll admit I'm proud of TP for making their latest contract so transparently condescending, so adorably racist, so carsaleman-y that I no longer appear to be the least bit like a "hater."

An "old" hater. Hadn't forgotten that, no.

So, here's a collection of the 'splode, for your convenience:
ADDED:
Heidi at The Beat rounds up with illustrations of Pinoccho being seduced:
THE BEAT: Tokyopop: Hey, dude, totally bad contract!

Johanna at Comics Worth Reading rounds up TP's fails (and is going back and forth with Nat Gertler in the comments):
Tokyopop Sets Tongues Wagging » Comics Worth Reading

The ha-ha from Lisa Jonte:
Is that TP on your shoe?

Dirk Deppey put me at the top of the fold! Woot!
Journalista - the news weblog of The Comics Journal May 27, 2008: Mazuruka Fantasy Theater

Nick Mamatas has some SERIOUS FUN with The Contract (and brings the lulz):
Shining Scars

Hope Larson:
I was fakin'. -

Bryan Lee O'Malley takes it to the woodshed:
Statement

Christopher Butcher loses his faith:
comics212 - never safe for work. APALLING: TOKYOPOP’S NEW CONTRACT

Precocious Curmudgeon warns:
Put down that pen!

Gia compares it to luring children with candy:
a geek by any other name Creators Beware: TOKYOPOP’s Manga Pilot ‘Pact’

Danielle regrets that she has to harsh, but she takes a stand:
Comics Should Be Good! » Manga Before Flowers — News Flash: Corporations Suck!

NSFW: Simon at Icarus see the contract as symptomatic of a publisher  not in the business of books:
Icarus Publishing  TP’s “pact” asks creators to relinquish moral rights?
(SERIUOSLY, Icarus is NSFW)

The respected UK Manga circle Sweatdrop Studios asks if the new contract can be of benefit:
"Manga Pilot Agreement" - Sweatdrop Forums


Heidi MacDonald (I emailed her last night), is covering this in the morrow.
