Ethan Van Sciver is raising money using GoFundMe for Richard C. Meyer's lawsuit against Mark Waid, and follows a similiar GoFundMe set up by Waid for this legal battle. Meyer, who Van Sciver refers to by the nickname "Ya Boi Zack," is suing Waid alleging that the long-time writer interfered with his plans to publish his comic book JawBreakers.

"Mark Waid, a bully with a history of harassing those who disagree with him, took it upon himself to call Zack's publisher and interfere with the contract they had between them," Van Sciver alleges, referring to Antarctic Press. "He bragged about it, before and after doing it. He scared this publisher. And Zack lost his publishing deal."

Van Sciver says that this GoFundMe for Meyer is a reaction to Waid's own crowdfunding for the legal battle.

"[Waid] is at the very heart of the problem in comics, and we must not allow Zack's limited resources to be a reason why he isn't stopped," writes Van Sciver.

Notable contributors from the comic book industry for Van Sciver's GoFundMe for Meyers appear to include Chuck Dixon, Matt Moylan, and Van Sciver himself.
