So, I’ve thought about doing character cameos in my comic, yknow a fun webcomic tradition. But I’m wondering, what would happen when I try to print and sell it as books? Would I need to pay royalties to all the creators who sent in characters? Or do I give a disclaimer when accepting characters that I will NOT be paying? But is that too rude?
Let me know what you think, especially if you’ve printed and sold your comic with cameo characters in it.
Oh and one final thing: what about allowing patron cameo characters? I’m charging people to give me their characters and then charging them again for the print book? Are most people fine with that?
Note: I would be fine with all these scenarios of having cameo characters with no royalties back to me, but I’m curious how others would feel.
