Random Comics News Story Round-Up

* there's a lengthy catch-up with Mike Diana here. It seems stupid from the vantage point of 2013 that people were once so horrified by Diana's art, which was clearly full of pretty basic symbolism and taboo-tweaking; it seems downright insane that 20 years ago people were being prosecuted and convicted for making art like that.

image* Matt Derman on The 'Nam #8. Justin Giampaoli on The Massive #12. KC Carlson on Walt Disney's Donald Duck: The Old Castle's Secret. Grant Goggans pokes around more Legion Of Super-Heroes. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Batman, Incorporated's first volume. Richard Bruton on Blood Blokes #3 and Thunder Brother: Soap Division #5. Kelly Thompson on Batwoman #20.

* Rob Clough takes another look at mentoring as practiced at Center For Cartoon Studies.

* Chris Mautner would like to see Swan collected. I always think of that stuff as already collected the way it's published, but I'm all for that material showing up in whatever form Chris would like.

* Alex Dueben talks to Peter Bagge. Steve Morris talks to Kate Brown. Casey Gilly talks to Kieron Gillen. I guess there's something in that Gillen interview about people objecting to a scene where teenagers are shown having casual sex...? That seems totally bizarre to me at this late date.

* not comics: here are some robot benches from J. Chris Campbell.

* finally, every time you think the comics industry sucks balls, it may help to remember it used to suck mega-balls.
