I have known Sean (the owner) for years now and he is doing one of my projects (if it gets done ) so I think I can tell you best. Sean offers a fair deal. Not the best in the industry, not the worst (far from it). He has always proven to be stand up in most cases, which says a lot. Understand, you'll get what you put in to the project (not saying money per say, I have lost thousands, but I have learned a lot). I think, for an Indy it is great place to start and you may decide to stay.

It's been two years. They're still around. Heard good things about them. I just learned about them a couple weeks ago. Heard of them before that, but nothing more then a company name that wasn't who I was looking for.

Anyone know what they're like now?

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure they don't offer a creator owned agreement.

Of course not that agreement would be private. All they publish is creator owned books.

Do they? I'm saying that I think maybe they don't.

If the agreement is not creator owned, then they would not be publishing creator owned books now would they?

The page you link to says they will help "develop and establish your intellectual property" -- no verbage about retaining your rights to said property.

Having a character/comic you created published does not always mean it will be a creator owned deal.

Fact is you don't know for sure do you Marv?

The ONLY way to know is to contact Sean. Unless someone here's been published, in which case Jason can answer the question.

Personally I can't see why it wouldn't be but you never know.

As posted above it is a Creator Owned Deal.

LOL @ Mwynn. You just keep getting ignored huh . Shadowflame was published through Arcana right?

I was under the impression that Arcana, like many other indy companies at the moment, want a stake in the ownership for publishing the title. Something like Arcana owns 50% of the property and it's licences from "10 years from last publication" or something like that.

This is becoming more common with indy publishers at the moment. Some have developed strong ties with media companies to sell the rights. They assume they'll make little to nothing on the sales of the book but split the money from media rights with you. I can't really say I blame them, but I would prefer to self publish and completely own my property.

I guess i do, thats okay though. Things may have changed with the deal with Platinum. Yet I will leave it at that. I'm not discussing private numbers.

I see no harm in an indy publisher wanting a stake in the ownership of your property in exchange for publishing the title. They are a business after all. And like jimmy said many have good connections.
