My Letter to Marvel about Marvel's Treatment of Gary Friedrich

I have been reading Marvel comics for the last 25 years since I was a young boy.  In fact an issue of spiderman is what helped me how to learn to read.   
I am very saddened by Marvel’s legal treatment of Gary Friedrich the man who helped create Ghost Rider by going after one of his few sources of income to the total of $17000. 
This is beyond disgusting and malicious.  I have been spending roughly a $70-100 dollars a month on your books for a long as I can remember.  I am emailing to inform you that I will be cancelling all of the Marvel books on my pull list from my local store.  Additionally I will no longer be spending my money going to Marvel movies (of which I have seen all at least twice) cartoons and toys.  
You were a company taught millions of people what herorism was.  It is heartbreaking that you are now teaching us about greed and evil through your actions as a company.  =
I have decided to spend my money on companies who respect the creatives that work for them.  
I will be forwarding this to my social networks and will be encouraging my friends to do the same.
You can write Marvel here and let them know how you feel about the actions they are taking against Gary.

Well said. I will be pointing out your letter to the GH who is also an avid comicbook fan and collector from way back when prairie bush tumbled across roadways .
