As this issue is wide enought for its own thread, here we have this in the Editing Rules:
"Do not create verse pages for companies. We have made exceptions for Disney and Nintendo, due to their extremely iconic statures, and occasional interaction between their properties, as well as for Dreamworks, and similar prominent animated movie imprints, with characters that have no other verse page of their own, where they can be listed, but a "verse" is generally defined as a shared continuity."
And here we are with the clear issue that we are blatantly ignoring this with over half of the Companies pages being around arguably breaking it.
My main issue is that IDW is breaking the thing of the series sharing a continuity, unless it could be argued to get an exception, especially considering the respective series featured on that verse page already haveversesoftheir own.
They can get their own separate verse pages if anything, but I still think that there's something off here.
Also going by that logic we should erase Image comics and Dark Horse comics for the same reason too.
I honestly wouldn't mind.
Verse pages should stick to a single franchise, potentially dividing into other verse pages if there are multiple canons to leave at a side, as it's the case with Sonic having the game and Archie verse pages as of now.
Image Comics, Dark Horse Comics and IDW aren't prominent as Disney or Nintendo nor feature multiple interactions between their own works, so they actually should be deleted and divided into as many verses as needed.
I don't read Dark Horse much, but I reckon similiar suit follows as Image
I haven't read it, but from a quick glance at the verse page this seems wrong. The only links on the page are links to other verse pages that fall under the "Dark Horse Comics" publishing label, and the summary reads like it mostly publishes compartmentalized series for licensed properties.
Yeah, Valiant is it own verse, divided by ages due the reboots (Valiant Comics, Acclaim Comics and currently Valiant Entertainment), only that when Acclaim age finished, characters like Solar, Magnus and Turok were licensed, and appears in Dark Horse and Golden Key comics.
Well, in this particular case, all of the listed franchises in the IDW Publishing page already seem to have their own verse pages, so moving the profile image links to their own sections of the respective verse pages, if they do not exist already, should probably be enough.
