Is there any way you could ask them to save the paper, and just email you the itemization as a PDF file?

This whole situation wth royalties make me really sick!I have seen similar examples all over the net.To set things clear i understand for the creators to have a fee on their reprinted work.What trully annoys me is the fact that they do it for a lifetime!All this should change!!!!someone who is born in 1990, 2000,2010 and reads the dark phoenix saga for ex they are all tottaly new readers!I think it is different to sell something to someone who could have it availiable when it was published and totally different to a whole new generation!So in my opinion with each decade that passes the percetance of the royalties sould encrease multiple times !At least 50% of the profits sould go to the creators!They publish material to a whole new  readership audience out of thin....air!That is NOT FAIR!!!!

There's no reason for royalties to increase. An equitable division, based on sales, is quite good enough.

So I decided to go looking for this card at the Hallmark store.
I bought TWO.

Ha!
Precisely.

This is no different from the times I bought Matchbox dinky cars with JB art work on the cardback.*

Collectors collect. I ain't even gonna try to stop!
(I'm happy to have the Canadian issued stamps of JBs MOS 1 cover as well.)


*One with the same artwork, from MOS #1, the other a She-Hulk lifted from interior FF pages (if memory serves).

JB, I notice that Marvel movie and TV credits sometimes give you thanks. When that happens, do they also give you some monetary compensation or is that a whole other thing?
