The imprint has been asserting more and more control over what it publishes. It doesn't effect earlier contracts, but they now keep a share of media rights, even on things like the Boys, which moved to a different publisher. And royalties were recently changed so that the creators aren't entitled to anything unless the monthly sells better than 50,000. Effectively, that means no royalties.

Yeah, I'm thinking in terms of those earlier contracts, since I haven't been following Vertigo recently. So I'm thinking about Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon holding all the rights to Preacher, for example. Needless to say, I'm not surprised that creators working at DiDio-era Vertigo are getting screwed in comparison.
