A Few Quick Notes On Yale Stewart, Dick Pics And Various Comics-Culture Permutations Perhaps In Play

So there's a cartoonist named Yale Stewart. A SCAD graduate, Stewart started out post-graduation doing an autobio comic called Gifted. He then shifted over into unlicensed kiddie versions of DC superheroes that he ran as JL8. These were popular. They were nominated for awards and well-reviewed. I'm pretty sure I linked to them. These led to official licensing work and work at Image. One of the permutations of the JL8 stuff was a series of images that Stewart has done as commentary on various national news stories and, at least in one case, solicited money for on behalf of an involved charity. The cartoonist Ulises Farinas objected to the latest of these images -- a Ferguson, Missouri related Green Lantern image -- and spoke out last week, setting off a mini-firestorm of criticism and Internet argumentation, much of it nasty and a lot of it aimed right back at Farinas.

imageIn the course of that argumentation, accusations sifted to the surface that Stewart had sent women in the comics industry dick pics. I'll define dick pics here -- for my Mom, mostly, so she doesn't ask me at lunch in a restaurant -- as photos taken usually in a mirror showing one's penis that are sent to someone, frequently as part of flirtatious dialogue in a sexual or hopefully sexual relationship. Stewart's proclivities re: camera and cock were apparently something in the rumor mills earlier this summer; Stewart addressed the rumors on Twitter in early July, and made a comment about the general practice in May. As far as I can tell, no one directly came forward to say this was done to me, not in public, but others have publicly testified that they were told by recipients that this had happened and stood firmly by these claims. Just about everyone who has sought to find out with any sort of connections in the comics world probably has at least one name. Further, it was claimed during this rolling, virtual reveal that these were unsolicited photos and that they went out to more than one person. You can see one on-line community forum where a photo said to be Stewart was posted to a thread here.

Other items of interest include a piece at Bleeding Cool about the Farinas/Stewart disagreement over the covers and an article at something called Unleash The Fanboy conflating the harassment claims with the criticism of the charity work into one super-issue and going after Farinas like he stole someone's pet. I disagree with the first piece in that I think these are fairly important issues, including and maybe especially the idea of profiting from grief -- and I disagree with the second on just about every substantive point.

Mostly, though, it looked like this had settled into the make jokes about it on Twitter + wondering out loud as to when Rich Johnston will put out another story on it at this now very different stage of things period.

Earlier today, Stewart posted a lengthy response on Facebook and via his Tumblr, saying the photos were his, they were sent to two women with whom he was having separate sexual relationships in 2012, they were still apparently unwanted, he has reached out and apologized to these women, he is apologizing to the public and he is making a $1000 charity donation. The next step, one supposes, would be a public vetting of that information, whether all of these things are true and whether that depiction encompasses everything involved. We'll see. If he's not being truthful here, he deserves everything that will come to him. My guess is that the first target of this attention will be the number of women that have received dick pics from this guy; he just sounds like he could be fudging there. It should also be pretty easy to ascertain if he was in a relationship with the women who got these pictures.

So a few things pop to mind, and they're not all "I need a new job." One is that the sentiment floated that it is ever okay to send people unsolicited naked pictures of yourself (or others) is deeply, horribly wrong. It's embarrassing to even have to type that. That's a big deal. That is not interpretive. That is not generational. That is not a whoopsie moment. That is a deliberative, potentially assaultive action. That is also something that someone else gets to decide for you, the hell with your intentions. Another is that I hope that anyone who experiences something shitty like this will reach out directly to any appropriate institution involved and give them a chance to do the right thing. This includes the institutions involved when/where an incident takes place and any/all institutions continuing to support said person once these things are reported and become part of the public record. Barring that -- and it's perfectly understandable why that last suggestion might be a total non-starter with a lot of folks -- a third thing is that I'm hopeful that someone might work with this site, or Heidi's, or ComicsAlliance, or CBR or any place you think makes sense to let those entities advocate on your behalf and hold institutions responsible. This can be done just as anonymously as it is to tell a few friends and swearing them to secrecy except when they're being mean about it on Twitter. A fourth realization is that Ulises Farinas was treated poorly by people that have a fannish interest in the art that Yale Stewart makes, and that this is another reminder of a deeply dysfuctional aspect of fan culture that ascribes virtue to certain fan interests and I think one against which we must always remain on guard.

One of the reasons that I support specific action should go hand in hand with broader change is because of stories like this one. While there's a possibility you can sort of carve out and wiggle your way to a point where sending one or two people pictures of your dick seems in a specific context an arguable thing to do, or at least one for which you can apologize down the road, maybe we're in an historical moment where we'd all be better off moving in the other freaking direction as far as we can go as opposed to remaining in those places where we have to contextualize and argue and apologize. Someone do an inspirational poster about that.

Mr. Stewart did not respond to an e-mail.

Kanika Mishra, Majida Shaheen Named 2014 Winners Of CRNI Award For Courage In Editorial Cartooning

Michael Cavna has a fine write-up here on the Cartoonists Rights Network International naming the Indian cartoonist Kanika Mishra and the Palestinian cartoonist Majida Shaheen this year's winners of the Award for Courage in Editorial Cartooning. As might be guessed, that's an award the group gives out to a cartoonist that exercises their "free-speech rights under extraordinary circumstances."

Mishra and Shaheen are the first female recipients.

Mishra was cited for her cartoons about rape charges facing religious leader Asaram Bapu, charges that eventually landed him in jail. The victim was 16 years old. Cavna's piece notes that the cartoonist received death threats against her and family members for her work on that story. Shaheen was cited for her cartoon about Hamas political figure Ismail Haniyeh and the Al-Quds Brigades. These cartoons led to threats of violence from the artist's community.

The awards will be presented October 11 during the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists convention in San Francisco. I hope one or both of the cartoonists will be able to attend; that's always difficult with that specific award.

You can watch a video interview conducted by CRNI's Robert Russell with Kanika Mishra here; you can see a pertinent example of Shaheen's cartooning here.

By Request Extra: Seth Kushner GoFundMe Account

The photographer and comics-maker Seth Kushner has a GoFundMe account in his name. It was started by his wife. Any money raised will go to support the family and pay extra bills while Kushner continues to undergo treatment for leukemia. I hope you'll consider helping.

There will be a lengthy benefit across two days a week from now.

By Request Special: An Impromptu Conversation About The Fulfillment Rate/Timeliness Of Crowd-Funders

Here. I thought that was a good conversation for the range of experiences on display despite its relative brevity.

As much as anyone cares about what I say about anything enough to pay attention, I think I may have a minor reputation for hating on crowd-funding. The thing is, crowd-funding is such a tremendous opportunity both in terms of what is provided and the diverse array of people that can participate in that option that its abuses have become of significant interest to me. I'm fascinated by the occasional nonchalance of it, too. One reason I try not to ask for anything when I support people is that I can't stand waiting for stuff, this kind of unfinished business that needs someone else in order for me to find closure. At any rate, I hope these kinds of things don't over time diminish the upside of that kind of mechanism.

This Isn't A Library: New And Notable Releases Into Comics' Direct Market

image

*****

Here are the books that make an impression on me staring at this week's no-doubt largely accurate list of books shipping from Diamond Comic Distributors, Inc. to comic book and hobby shops across North America.

I might not buy all of the works listed here. I might not buy any. You never know. I'd sure look at the following, though.

*****

JUN141280 SISTERS GN $10.99
JUN141281 SISTERS HC GN $24.99
Behold the summer juggernaut we've all ben waiting for, although my guess is that this is really an early Fall release, as momentum should take Raina Telgemeier's work -- this time more closely affiliated with her breakout hit Smile than follow-up Drama could be -- all the the way through Christmas with sales punch. The first printing on this was bigger than all but a handful of North American superhero comic books since 2000. Telgemeier is a big star with her readers, and one thing she does as well as any cartoonist working is track the emotional state of her characters as they move through the narrative. I would assume a box set with Smile is coming soon, if not immediately, and she has a book tour planned.

imageJUN140463 FADE OUT #1 (MR) $3.50
JUN140145 MULTIVERSITY #1 $4.99
JUN140015 BPRD HELL ON EARTH #122 $3.50
JUN140010 DARK HORSE PRESENTS 2014 #1 $4.99
JUN140339 LITTLE NEMO RETURN TO SLUMBERLAND #1 $3.99
JUN140581 SUPREME BLUE ROSE #2 (MR) $2.99
JUN140584 TREES #4 (MR) $2.99
JUN140619 DAREDEVIL #7 SIN $3.99
JUN140698 MAGNETO #8 $3.99
JUN140614 ORIGINAL SINS #5 $3.99
JUN148174 SOUTHERN BASTARDS #1 3RD PTG (MR) $3.50
The juggernaut here is the first issue of the Grant Morrison written and coordinated multiple-universe series Multiversity for DC Comics, a company that can always use the energy and conviction that Morrison brings to such project. I'm choosing to spotlight the cover to the latest Ed Brubaker/Sean Phillips comic book The Fade Out, because that team may be the only creative force in the big-company end of comics more reliable than Morrison. This is post-war Hollywood noir, and comes right on the heels of their final issue of Fatale. A Mignola-verse book comes out this week -- they come out almost every week -- while Dark Horse is also presenting the latest iteration of its anthology title, Dark Horse Presents. That's a smaller book and a smaller price point than the last volume. The Little Nemo is Eric Shanower so I'll definitely look at that. That's two comic books from Warren Ellis next; I'd love to know the last time that happened. Daredevil and Magneto are solid mid-list performers for the House Of Ideas, while Original Sins is the latest "event" series, this time focused on messing with character origins a bit. Or at least that's my impression; I've only seen the advertisements. You know it's sort of fun to read those event series if you're not reading a bunch of mainstream comics just to sort of catch up with the general way they're being done. Southern Bastards looks like a legitimate hit with a third printing arriving this quickly.

JUN141526 CHI SWEET HOME GN VOL 11 $13.95
JUN141562 DOROHEDORO GN VOL 13 (MR) $12.99
MAY141474 VINLAND SAGA GN VOL 04 $19.99
Three solid series of mainstream-oriented manga of different types. I'm only following these in chunks and gups according to when they become available, but the price point is always pretty reasonable on these things right off of the rack first day.

MAY141606 FIRST KINGDOM HC VOL 05 (MR) $19.99
I'm happy to see this Jack Katz work slip back into print and I think there's an audience of sci-fi readers for this material, if only a modest one. I love the magazine, but I'd certainly take a look at this presentation.

MAR140977 KILLER OMNIBUS TP VOL 02 (MR) $24.99
This is a high-end spy/mercenary adventure serial I've enjoyed when it's cross my desk. Very stylish-looking.

JUL141214 PEANUTS WAITING FOR GREAT PUMPKIN HC $9.99
This is another Peanuts gift book, which may or may not appeal in DM shops for a crowd that might be more oriented towards the complete collection. Still, it's hard to go wrong with Schulz.

JUN141261 ALANS WAR GN $24.00
JUN141448 SHARK KING TP $4.99
JUN141265 ODD DUCK GN $15.99
JUN141212 TALES DESIGNED TO THRIZZLE TP VOL 01 $22.99
There are a number of pretty good books coming back to market; this is a group of four, completely unaffiliated with each other, that jumped out at me. My favorites were the second and the fourth. You won't find a prettier comic than that Shark King book, while the Kupperman I thought was really strong across the board.

MAY141480 ZAYA HC (MR) $29.99
This is a pairing of JD Morvan and the illustrator Huang-Jei Wei, continuing a run of Morvan's collaborative works to the market. It's a mostly spy-oriented science fiction work and it looks very, very pretty.

MAY141408 HIP HOP FAMILY TREE GN VOL 01 (NEW PTG) $27.99
MAY141401 HIP HOP FAMILY TREE GN VOL 02 $27.99
This is Ed Piskor's new work and a new printing of the previous volume. I think it's safe to call this book a legitimate alt-comics hit, and while it's not operating in the same sales stratosphere as the book at the top of this post, I hear it's doing very well. This is also a book likely to be paired together for gift-giving. I like cultural history, the more idiosyncratic the better -- it doesn't any more personalized than Piskor's mix of documentation and junky comic art flourishes. The great thing if you lived through this time period is to test your memory in a timeline fashion; I remember some of these things, but never close to the right order.

*****

The full list of this week's releases, including some titles with multiple cover variations and a long, impressive list of toys and other stuff that isn't comics, can be found here. Despite this official list there's no guarantee a comic will show up in the stores as promised, or in all of the stores as opposed to just a few. Also, stores choose what they carry and don't carry so your shop may not carry a specific publication. There are a lot of comics out there.

To find your local comic book store, check this list; and for one I can personally recommend because I've shopped there, albeit a while back, try this.

The above titles are listed with their Diamond order code in the first field, which may assist you in finding comics at your shop or having them order something for you they don't have in-stock. Ordering through a direct market shop can be a frustrating experience, so if you have a direct line to something -- you know another shop has it, you know a bookstore has it -- I'd urge you to consider all of your options.

If I failed to list your comic, that's because I hate you.

Let's Update The Comics By Local Scene List For 2014

image

In 2005 it occurred to me that this site could use a basic resource breaking down all things comics-related by metropolitan area -- kind of a first stop on who to contact if you were planning to relocate, or where to go if you were planning a visit, or who to invite if you were having a show, or who you might profile if you were writing a feature article.

This list always in progress is the result. Creative people make up the bulk but not the entirety of the people list. Comic shops make up the bulk but not the entirety of the institutions list.

It was majorly updated in January 2007, February 2008, December 2009, December 2010, January 2012 and we hope to now see it updated in August 2014.

This is the old list. We'll debut a new list with your changes on Labor Day. We would also like to add a new section: alumni from the various schools.

If you can be added to a community,

If you know someone who can be added to a community,

If you know someone who is definitely no longer part of a community but is listed as such,

If you know of an institution that should be added to the list below,

If you know of a community of three or more people and institutions to add,

If you know of changes or additions that need to be made in existing entries,

Basically, anything you can help me do to build on the following, I would greatly appreciate it. Four caveats:
1) I have to have either heard of a person or can find word of a person or have some other reason to believe an individual should be on the list

2) I'm not really all that interested in hearing your complaints about how I'm doing this wrong or which parts are stupid and I'm definitely not interested in hearing an argument from you as to why you or someone else should be included or not included. I'm not looking for a co-author, and your work/reputation should precede you

3) if you don't know for sure, don't suggest a change or addition. I don't need a guess; those are bigger pain in the butt to correct than not having the information at all.

4) Be as succinct as possible. If it's any work at all in me in deciphering your note, I'll delete it. Mirroring the structure always works.
Thank you in advance, and long live comics.

Go, Read: Frank Miller 20 Questions At Playboy

Here. It's his answer to #19 that will likely set off article and social media kvetching interest, mostly because that's the only reaction anyone has to anything anymore but partly because his answer there is... well... let's say colorful.

Miller was not the humongous figure for me in the 1980s that he was for most of my same-age peers that read comics, although I enjoy pretty much all of his major runs within the corporate superhero companies and there sure were a lot of them.
