Original thinking is always in opposition to what has been called the corporate mentality. There really does need to be a shake-up every so often, and that goes even moreso for the upper echelons.
What I’m waiting for is all the independent creators to start to realize how long they have been used like toilet paper and tossed; and say to publishers that magic word “No”. No, I won’t sell my work for rates too low to live properly. No, I won’t letter your copy if you are a malignant sexist pig. No, I will not provide color if you have loud personal bias against certain colors! No, I will not edit for you if you tell me to lie to my staff. No, I will not buy your funny-books if you keep engaging in negative behaviors. That sort of thing.
