Brian Hibbs Takes a Victory Lap

The Brian Hibbs-led class action suit victory by retailers over Marvel Comics receives its due in this San Francisco newspaper piece. It's interesting to see that side of the business spoke of in neutral business terms for a change, and as a personal note I'm also glad that Brian has another press photo that's not the hideous picture we used to run in the Comics Journal back in the late 1990s. As covered extensively here and in other comics-related sites and magazines, Hibbs' lawsuit forced changes in the way Marvel allows order adjustments, and ended a common practice of Marvel shipping late or changing content in its direct market dealings.
