God, we love Twitter. Superstar DC creator Sean Murphy was pissed off on Twitter yesterday when he learned that someone on the Batman Beyond team cropped his batmobile out of a cover for the series, resulting in the following exchange between Murphy and fellow DC creator Brett Booth:
Someone on the BATMAN BEYOND team cropped my cover w/o asking, removing a Batmobile in the bg. Glad I quit that book. pic.twitter.com/WzZDaKAB6K— Sean Gordon Murphy (@Sean_G_Murphy) August 14, 2013
@Sean_G_Murphy don't take to too personally, the Logo is far more important than the art;)— Brett Booth (@Demonpuppy) August 14, 2013
@Demonpuppy The editor called the background cityscape "empty" and wanted me to fill it with more characters. Almost lost my shit.— Sean Gordon Murphy (@Sean_G_Murphy) August 14, 2013
@Sean_G_Murphy yeah sometimes I just don't agree with them. I stopped doing multiple covers for awhile after a similar experience.— Brett Booth (@Demonpuppy) August 14, 2013
@Sean_G_Murphy sometimes people just don't click. It happens.— Brett Booth (@Demonpuppy) August 14, 2013
Murphy isn't saying this is something that happens all the time at DC:
Or maybe he's just afraid to imply otherwise.
The pair quickly went into damage control mode:
Brett Booth knows not to bite the hand that feeds him:
Guys, we appreciate your tact, but you're doing it wrong.
