Go, Read: Derf's Reminder That New Healthcare Programs Could Have Devastating Effect On Comics

The Beat was smart enough to pick up on Derf's recent note that more restricted healthcare could have a drastic effect on a comics community that depends on many of its younger artists taking some measure of financial risk. It's a game-changer for sure.

Take note of the dissenters in the comments section. Many of them have no clue that Derf is a successful cartoonist and call some version of sour grapes. The overall negativity may surprise some. Not me. A significant sub-group of comics fans has long had a negative view of anyone criticizing what many feel are dream jobs, end stop. I think it's an orientation that would be to comics' advantage to change.
