Random Comics News Story Round-Up

image* here's Dr. Frederick Aldama, Professor Latinx himself, on Miles Morales and a few issues related to the character.

* not comics: that nice man Buzz Dixon sent along this link to an article about a summer camp using superheroes to reach special needs children.

* not comics: it's always good to be reminded of dodgy activities by big corporations when they're immune to reprisal, as was the case with The Lion King and a similar work by Osamu Tezuka festooned with specific acts of appropriation. I always laugh by those that still take the strategy of never having heard of a similar work to one they worked on, a work by an acknowledged master, when I knew about it at least a little bit collecting random facts as a dull-witted 11-year-old.

* here's an update on the support for conservative political candidates provided by Marvel Chairman Ike Perlmutter.

* finally: some nice person at Henry Ford College publications profiles those great citizens of comics, Dan and Katie Merritt.
