Profiled: Matthew Petz creator of War of the Woods

Matthew Petz won last year’s Zuda monthly contest only to watch DC Comics close down Zuda. JK Parkin profiles Matthew’s relaunch of War of the Woods on ComiXology and how the rights to his creation were returned to him.

Petz told me that when Zuda closed down, he was offered a percentage of what he would have earned on the contract he won last January, despite the fact that he hadn’t produced any work for them yet. “The people at DC I was dealing with and who I’ve since become friends with were (and still are) very supportive,” he said. “So in the end I got some money and more importantly, I was given my rights back. That was the biggest deal. I own War of the Woods 100 percent.”
