After reading this http://destroyerzooey.livejournal.com/180842.html I wanted to mention another bit of their bad (for the writer or artist ) contracts. I was talking to one of their artists and learned how a contract for a series there works. It seems that you write the first one as a standalone volume with a contract to do a sequel. But..if the first one is a flop no sequel is ever released. So this damages the cohesion of the stories and makes so good stories not be told. I must admit I was not in the least surprised by this new contract they are doing. But really, no moral rights. That is too far, even for Tokeopop.
