Shows what happens when you are behind the curve, as Marvel, Cockrum, Agree to Settlement (thanks Z) is a follow-up to yesterday's story about the X-Men artist's current condition from shortly after the article mentioned yesterday was published. It turns out that a settlement between Marvel and Dave to compensate him for his contributions to their legacy was engineered by Clifford Meth and Neal Adams, a legendary comic artist in his own right. Word is: "While the details of the settlement will remain confidential, they will allow the Cockrums to securely enjoy their retirement. The Cockrums were elated with news of the settlement. 'Dave is relieved and happy that Marvel has come forward with an offer to compensate him for past work that has benefited Marvel,' Neal Adams reported. 'I can tell you that Dave's happiness is, in fact, my happiness.'" This doesn't abate the sadness at Dave's current physical condition, but it's a relief to know that their financial difficulties have been eased.
