A More Animated Omega Site

Visit the newly animated OmegaTheUnknown.com.

Not only will you get a little visual treat, you’ll also find a link to four informational banners like this one…

…that you can download and display on your own website or blog, in your email signature, or anywhere else you like.

Needless to say, Mary and I would like to see a these banners spring up all over the net.

    Do you perhaps feel an artist credit is due there?

    Just asking, as a big part of the “creators’ rights” movemenmt of late seems to me to have been involved with rightly crediting artists as co-creators.

  2. Steve Gerber Says:

    I can’t take it upon myself to include the artist’s name in a matter that could become contentious.

    I fully acknowledge Jim Mooney’s contribution to the series, however, and if he’d like his name to be included on the banners, he only has to ask. We’ll do an update.

  3. Leviathan Says:

    That’s a great answer.

  4. Bob Kennedy Says:

    Here’s why it’s contentious: What atist gets the credit? The one who drew the first appearance? The one who designed the costume (John Romita Sr., if I remember correctly)?

    The mass of people who could legitimately claim to have created, say, Wolverine or the Punisher could fill a (short) school bus. (John Romita designed the original costumes for both, although neither character used those exact costumes for very long if at all.)

    Well, count my “blog” in.

    Added it to my blog site. Once I get a chance I’ll post a comment about what it is about. I never had much of a career in comics and don’t know if I’ll ever get back in again, so I don’t know how much help it will be, but I’m glad to add my little bit.

    Added it to my blog, and to the Star-Spangled Site front page.

  8. Bart Lidofsky Says:

    Wolverine’s look was originally a clear swipe from the Doom Patrol’s Beast Boy. This was semi-acknowledged when it was revealed that Wolverine’s real name was “Logan”. Who was to know that TEEN TITANS would become a hit, and Beast Boy would become prominent again?

    Kind of remniscent of when KOJAK was a hit, and several series came out simultaneously with names similar to KOJAK, including KOLCHAK, THE NIGHT STALKER (although the critics conveniently forgot that Kolchak preceeded Kojak by a year or so).

    Bob: “Contentious” means “potentially involving lawyers.”

  10. Claudio Piccinini Says:

    “The one who designed the costume (John Romita Sr., if I remember correctly)?”

    Bob, if we start looking these things…
    I don’t think John Romita Sr. would ever worry about co/creation of the character just because he designed the costume.
    Draw a line between rationale and paranoia…
