Comic book contracting has opened the door for creative forms of contracting. This innovation has made contracting more accessible and transparent to the general public. Accordingly, Comic Book and Creative Contracting has been praised and talked about extensively in the media.
Here are just a few examples!

Professor Camilla Baasch Andersen and Dr. Colette R. Brunschwig's Q&A, made especially for the Comic and Creative Contracts Conference 2017 by Colette R. Brunschwig and Salome Pitschen
In this video, Colette R. Brunschwig answers questions regarding legal visualization, legal audiovisualization, and legal multisensorization and shares her thoughts on the current state and potential future growth of these research topics. Thereby, she also considers comic book contracts.
Professor Andersen talking at the UWA Institute of Advanced Studies. Professor Andersen inspires non-lawyers and seeks to persuade lawyers as to why we need a simpler form of contracting. Once again she poses the question; 'who even reads those end user licence agreements before they click agree?' In this video Camilla Andersen wonderfully points out that the legal profession needs simplification.
Camilla talks with Chris Isyley of local Perth radio station 6PR. This radio interview is insightful as Chris hones in on the more important questions that follow comic book contracts. Is there a danger that in using comic book contracts, important information will be left out? Isn't there the danger of over-simplification that end user licence agreements and other tedious legal documents seek to overcome? Here Camilla mentions that while simplification will not be ideal in all instances, for many other contracts, such as in end-user licence agreements, comic book contracts would make contracts more comprehensible. This radio interview is an interesting dialogue between Chris and Camilla addressing many other aspects of Comic Book Contracts not focused on in other media.
