Interview with Ray Felix part 4: How to Spot an Idea Thief

Interview with Ray Felix part 4

Miguel Guerra talks to Ray about how big corporations love stealing ideas from indies. The comics industry is no exception. How to spot when you’re being played. Highlights include…

• More of what to watch out for! Ray organized a Creators Group where they would discuss ideas (jam session). One of the members has also a Ghost Artist for Marvel. They soon noticed their ideas (characters and scenarios) started to appear on the pages of Marvel. Learn how they punked the spy and kicked him out for good.

• Beware of people at conventions too. Watch out for people asking too many questions, especially about the backstory of your characters.

What the comics industry doesn’t want you to know

I fist spoke to Ray Felix about his legal battles with Marvel and DC back in 2013. Ray’s self published book, A World Without Superheroes, was challenged by both Marvel and DC over his use of “superhero” in the title. The Big Two claim they own “superhero” in any context (damn!). Our interview was so popular, many news sites and blogs, like The Guardian and the New York Daily News wrote articles about it. To read the full interview, click here.

I decided to follow up with Ray of Bronx Heroes Publishing, and see how he’s doing. Let’s just say, he’s been busy! I divided our compelling conversation into a series of interviews, where we discuss:

• How to survive as an independent comic creator
• Protecting your intellectual property against corporate lawyers
• The hidden world of ghost writers, artists and finishers. Who creates your favorite comics?
