Marvel Demands $17,000 from Broke Ghost Rider Creator

Marvel Demands $17,000 from Broke Ghost Rider Creator

Personally, I think this is absolutely shameful behaviour by Marvel and I’m not alone. Read more about Ghost Rider creator Gary Friedrich and his legal battle with Marvel here.

Below is a message from Gary:

“A NOTE TO MY FANS AND SUPPORTERS:

Since the various news agencies and websites have reported the ruling against me on my claims against Marvel in the Ghost Rider lawsuit, and the assessment of a $17,000 judgment against me and my company instead, I have read an amazing amount of comments in my support on the internet, and have received many messages of support directly. Although the reports of my employment situation and financial difficulties as well as problems with my health are unfortunately true, I want to let everyone in the comic book world, especially my supporters and fans of the Ghost Rider character which I invented, created, and wrote, that I am going to appeal the Court’s ruling and continue to fight this as long as I am able and that your support of me means more than you will ever know. I have heard your voices. I thank you with all my heart, and I appreciate your thoughts and best wishes as I soldier on.
