Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* Frank Young on Cecil Jensen and Elmo. Looks like more to come.

* Derf shares a common comics advertisement from years past.

* here is a horrible story of abuse within the comics industry, told by its victim. Here is a twitter thread in support by its author. Here is a commentary thread by noted and trusted industry advocate Jay Edidin. There is an enormous amount of casual exploitation and abuse at different levels of the comics industry, partly I think because of a baseline expectation that the industry exists in not a small way to facilitate social relationships in a way that even those involved would find alarming and viciously problematic in any other context. It demands the light of our constant attention, and our unqualified sympathy and support to those affected.

* Lew Stringer notes the passing of Terry Bave.

* finally: this is a hell of a story by Steve Lieber and it's amazing to me I'm just hearing it now.
