Authors may be missing royalty statements or checks across a wide range of properties in prose, comics, or graphic novels. This list is incomplete and based on properties for which we have verified reports of missing statements and royalties. 

  • LucasFilm (Star Wars, Indiana Jones, etc.)

  • Boom! Comics (Licensed comics including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc.)

  • Dark Horse Comics (Licensed comics including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, etc.)

  • 20th Century Fox (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Alien, etc.)

If you have not been paid or are missing royalty statements, these contracts must be honored. We urge all authors to review their statements to make certain they are in order. 

 

To get help in seeking resolution, an affected author does not need an agent or membership in any author organization. If you are missing royalties or royalty statements, please fill out this form hosted by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America. We guarantee anonymity.
