    Responding to strong industry opinion, colorists will now be eligible to receive royalties and will also receive cover credits on issues they've worked on. Digital-first creative teams are also eligible for participation for the first time, having formally been paid at a flat rate.
    About time.

    This is fantastic news. I'm glad colorists get credit for the work they put in as well.

    What took them so long on the whole colorist credit thing? The work of colorists nowadays is clearly an artform of its own.

    Yeah, I've been completely "wow'd" by a lot of colorists' work, especially lately, so it's fantastic to see them get their due.

    Agreed on the colorists.

    It is hard to believe digital first comic creators were paid at a flat rate. That is seriously uncool.

    Positive changes Nice! It's always good to see the industry grow like this. DC has some brilliant colourists that make the book so vibrant and made me appreciate a lot of things. I'm happy for them getting to be much more included like this.
    Current Monthly Pulls (though I buy a ton of trades as well all the time):
    DC: Trinity of Sin: The Phantom Stranger, Trinity of Sin: Pandora, Justice League, Justice League United, Constantine, Justice League Dark, Smallville Season 11 Minis
    Marvel: Avengers, New Avengers, Avengers World, Original Sin

    Favourite DC Characters: 1- Supergirl 2- Pandora 3- Red Lantern Bleez 4- Batgirl (Babs) 5- Larfleeze 6- Green Arrow

    Hyped for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire!

    I think it's great, but it seems like this should have been done all along.

    Regardless, I'm happy this has happened.
