Ellison, Fantagraphics settle
The world is a bit nicer today, as the acrimonious lawsuit between Harlan Ellison and Fantagraphics has not only been settled,but the terms of the settlement have been released. Both parties agreed that "ad hominem, personal attacks" will cease as long as each is alive (or, in the case of Fantagraphics, in business).
In addition, Fantagraphics agreed to remove Harlan’s name from the cover of future editions of Comics Journal Library 6: The Writers, as well as his interview, and to remove passages from the book Comics as Art: We Told You So, as well as removing those paragraphs from its website. At the same time, Ellison’s website will remove allegations that Groth embezzled funds, anad which "likened him to a child molester." A rebuttal statement will be on his site for at least 30 days.
Fantagraphics may not solicit any further donations of art for its Defense Fund, but may market those pieces which have already been donated.
Ellison will receive two copies of all Fantagraphics publications or any of its imprints which contain material he wrote.
Each party is responsible for its own legal fees.
