Random Comics News Story Round-Up

Let's stick with a pair of review recommendations today. J. Caleb Mozzocco on Walt Disney's Donald Duck: Trail Of The Unicorn, while Chris Mautner has a long piece here about the new Witzend deluxe presentation. It's interesting to read this older material for the casual, occasional prejudice on display: racism and ethnic hatred in some comics; straight up old-boy sexism in others. I would certainly encourage all parents who are going to read older comics as part of their library for children in their home to read any older material to see if the ideas on display match up with their own in a way that might require a talk with the kids, or to skip the material entirely. That said, I love a lot of these comics, and am very glad they're collected. We live in amazing times.
