Initially discussing the Titan trade paperbacks and IPC's non-payment of royalties to creators for reprints, landau says "We decided to pay creators out of our own profits, which did not make IPC too happy. We did this again when we launched and ran Eagle Comics in the US for IPC [reprinting 2000 AD material]."
