Odds'n'Sods: 6 September 2013

  • This link has been doing the rounds all week, but it's worth re-posting: I am massively impressed with this home-made range of Masters of the Universe Lego. (link)
  • Penny Arcade's Mike Krahulik draws a regularly laugh-out-loud webcomic and his company donates huge amounts of money to charity. If only he'd also stop being so damned offensive. The neverending 'dickwolves' controversy got coverage on The New Statesmen (link) while Elizabeth Sampat urges gamers to "quit fucking going to PAX already" (link). Sampat's article begins with a handy series of links to help you understand exactly what this whole shemozzle is all about.
  • I am very glad to see that, after completing their excellent series of hardcover collections of the Carl Barks Disney comic books, Fantagraphics are pushing ahead with a Don Rosa range as well. Fantagraphics treat comic creators exceptionally well; I'm hoping to find out if Rosa will be receiving royalties for the first time with these books. (link)
  • J.H Williams III and W. Haden Blackman are departing their DC comic book Batwoman after issue #26, citing editorial interference and a refusal by DC management to allow them to depict the marriage of the book's two lead characters (who are both women). This saddens me, not just because of DC refusing to depict a strong lesbian relationship or editorial interference, but also simply because Batwoman has been one of their best titles in recent years.

  • This one's been knocking around in my links drawer for a month, and I honestly can't remember if I posted it before or not: Dark Horse are publishing an Ewoks graphic novel by Zack Giallongo that ties together elements of Return of the Jedi, Caravan of Courage and the Star Wars: Ewoks cartoon. It's out in October, and I'm already excited. What? Shut up. (link) Leave me alone.
