Shades of Mark Alessi.
I remember Gail's phone calls from the road the weekend she attended Rick's show and, when recounting her tribulations here, she's being kind to the man. The crap he put her through was absolutely absurd and unconscionable, and I remember at th etime really starting to worry that the next time I saw Gail, it would be on the side of a milk carton.
Attention, all creators who have been stiffed by Olney:
if you want to file a claim against the man but can't afford the expense, I will cover you out of my own pocket. No joke. I don't care if Olney owes you ninety bucks or nine thousand, if you're willing to put together your case but reclamation costs, filing fees and professional legal consultation are standing between you and your day in court, I will personally foot those bills. Contact me and we'll work out the details. If you're one of the three people on the internet who don't know my e-mail address, contact Gail and she'll forward your correspondence.
Go get him.
Wow a pro and one who is awesome. I remember seeing you at Heroes Con in 1999 Mr.Waid. I always loved your Flash run and the JLA arc you did with " Tower of Babel ".
Plus your kickin lots of booty on Legion of Superheroes. Love the appearance of the New Wanderers. I plan to add " Brave & the Bold " to my pull list .
Now I shall stop my regular scheduled sucking up and go back to following this thread. :)

Hey, "Rick". Go back a few miles, past Old Man Peterson's barn, then down the hill. Take the left fork in the road, and then go a couple miles more. See that line? Don't cross it anymore.

You are not even in the same species with the Shaws.
It is my fervent hope that somebody gives you the swift kick to the groin that you so desperately deserve, you turd juggler.
EDIT: It looks like Mr Waid has just raised his foot and taken aim. I hope it hurts.

Dick, bring it.
Bring it the fuck on.
I've collected the names of quite a few lawyers over the last few years dealing with contracts and entertainment law and I have no problem siccing them on your ass.
And good on ya Waid, you kick.
Mr Waid, you are a scholar and gentleman. I am in awe of your generosity. This goes so far above any sense of right and wrong; you are truly a Samaratin.
'Dick', you should be ashamed of yourself. You've got people willing to cover your debts, willing to help others take the proper legal channels to recover what you owe them. And where exactly do you stand?
You've admitted to owing many many creators (Daphne calculated the total expressed since this thread started to be somewhere in the neighborhood of $17,000, not including my own). You have yet to show the slightest bit of remorse for such flagrant withholdings. What you're doing amounts to fraud on a Federal level of law.
And all you've done here is occasionally stir the sediment, call respected creators 'liars', and sling your half-baked insults like so much excrement in the monkey-house.
I truly hope someone does take Mr Waid up on his offer. I'd enjoy immensely watching you and your imaginary playmate squirm under a judge's verdict.
Bravo, Mr Waid.

Mark Waid is an ornery cuss...and I mean that in the best, most respectful way possible.
Mark, can you post a complete list of everything you're currently writing? I want to make sure I add any that I'm missing to my pull list.
