You can download a .pdf of it here. Attempting to read legal documents always makes my head hurt, and I know other folks will have better analysis of it up later today, but here’s what I gleaned from scanning through it:
* Both parties must refrain from making “ad hominem attacks” on each other as long as they are alive and/or Fantagraphics is in existence. They are free, however, to critique each other’s work. They are also forbidden to ever discuss the settlement.
* Fantagraphics will remove two passages from the upcoming “Comics As Art” book.
* If the TCJ: Writers book is published again, Ellison’s name will be stricken from the cover and his interview in the book will be removed.
* Gary Groth (or some other Fantagraphics representative) will post a 500-word essay on Ellison’s message board to rebut statements Ellison made accusing Groth of embezzling funds and comparing him to a child molester. The statement will go online within five business days.
* Ellison gets two free copies of any book Fantagraphics publishes that contains anything he’s written.
* The Fantagraphics Defense Fund will come to a close with any remaining money going towards defraying lingering litigation fees.
There’s more, but that’s what I could make out to be the highlights, though I’m sure I missed something. Be a pal and let me know what it was.
