No, Ethan is not on the Alt-Hero team. Perhaps some day, we'd certainly like to work with him, but not yet. And yes, we're going to see a number of people following our crowdfunding lead, then crashing and burning because they don't understand that they will not be permitted access to the converged distribution and retail channels. I expect a number of people to attempt to strike out on their own, then eventually come to Dark Legion in the next 12-18 months once they learn the difference between a) a successful crowdfunding campaign for a single product or two and b) a stable publishing house with a reliable distribution system.
Remember, not even having the #1 bestselling book in the world is a guarantee that your new publishing house is going to be viable just a year later. But it is evident that people need to learn these lessons for themselves.
