Plagiarism is the Sincerest Form of Flattery, Right?

I also saw this recently on Amazon:

el Borak collected stories for Kindle

Apparently, an e-publishing company used the sketch I did of Robert E. Howard's el Borak for their Kindle collection of el Borak stories without asking me for permission or even letting me know they were using it. I'd be offended if:

A) I thought they were making any sales.

B) I wasn't more offended by the fact that they probably didn't get permission from REH's estate to publish these stories either.

I am however offended by the horrible typesetting they used - jeesh.

The original in all its untainted glory:

Rob Steibel over at the Kirby Museum website saw one of the sketches I've done in honor of Jack Kirby's birthday and posted a link on their site:


Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the mention!
