Daniel Clowes is exploring his legal options against Shia LaBoeuf, Fantagraphics Books associate publisher Eric Reynolds told Buzzfeed Tuesday.  LaBeouf made a film using dialogue, storyline, and visuals from a Daniel Clowes comic without permission, attribution, or payment (see "Shia LaBeouf Rips Off Daniel Clowes"). 

When it was discovered, LaBoeuf apologized, but not only was his apology partially lifted from a Yahoo Answers post, it didn’t go far enough, Reynolds said.  "His apology is a non-apology, absolving himself of the fact that he actively misled, at best, and lied, at worst, about the genesis of the film... I’m not sure if it’s more disturbing that he plagiarized, or that he could rationalize it enough to think it was OK and that he might actually get away with it."
