Muhammad Ali, one of the world's best-known athletes, passed away yesterday at age 74.

In his memory, I offer an excerpt from the profile, "The Greatest," in The Big Book of the '70s. Script by Jonathan Vankin, art by Graham Manley. One page of three.

Now it might seem odd me posting this, I am not American, and I am a cis-male, and one for whom parenthood is never likely to be a thing.

But that's sort of the point.... )

Warning for heavy racism, language, and violence.

In times like this, especially over the past few months since I last posted anything from March, I feel it's best to return to this comic.

"Without a doubt, the comics format made me the man I am today. I remember reading [Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story], 14 pages and sold for 10 cents, and as a student with other students in Tennessee, we read the book and had a protest using the lessons from that book.

It was our guide – it was like our road map. And this is my belief – March, with its three books, will be a road map and a guide to many people in the future, especially young people. Especially children.

"To have a parent, a grandparent, a teacher, say “all of the children should be reading this book,” to have someone say “this book should be in every school and every library,” that is very meaningful. And I hope people will read it, not only here in America but around the world, and be inspired to act, be inspired to do something." - Congressman John Lewis

In February and March 1974, SF writer Philip K. Dick had a series of hallucinatory experiences which influenced the remainder of his personal life and literary career. Although he generally treated these as genuine spiritual revelations, on which he wrote a massive journal commentary he called the Exegesis, he did occasionally consider the possibilities that these visions were symptoms of schizophrenia or a temporal lobe epilepsy. Whatever they were, in 1981 Dick sat with interviewer Gregg Rickman to discuss them, and in the summer of 1986, R. Crumb illustrated some excerpts in Weirdo #17. 2⅔ pages out of 8.

There's pretty much nothing I can say, to summarize this work's artistic and commercial impact on sequential art, that others haven't said before, so on to the scans, all from Maus II: And Here My Troubles Began (Pantheon, 1991). Total of nine pages out of 130: two from Chapter 1, one from Chapter 2, six (out of 24 pages) from Chapter 3.

Trigger warning for scenes of Holocaust atrocities and for racist speech.

One of the best things about the internet is the sheer variety of media you find, more or less by chance. From the whimsical and amusing, to those which are so scorchingly painful you can practically FEEL the cost of writing it to the author as you read it.

This is very much the latter.

"Lighter than my Shadow" is a forthcoming autobiographical graphic novel about growing up with anorexia and coming to terms with it in adulthood by a British creator; Katie Green.

I'll say up front there are trigger warning  for issues here involving an eating disorder as well as a reference to sexual abuse in the material linked to, so proceed any further bearing that in mind.

Boing Boing, a directory of wonderful things, has a preview up of "Primates," an upcoming graphic novel by Jim Ottaviani and illustrator Maris Wicks. The GN will cover the professional histories of the three great female primatologists of the 20th century: Dian Fossey, Jane Goodall and Biruté Galdikas.

This seems singularly apt. Though not a happy story, and indeed horrifying in more ways than I can articulate, it's a story about courage, and determination in the face of unimaginable opposition.

The piece is called Malala Yousafzai: I have the right. (Those of you familiar with the name will know that this is a story involving violence against a young woman, and bravery beyond measure, for those of you who aren't yet familiar with it, read on...)

Because this is a real person, I'm being cautious with the trigger warnings, and include them for bullying, child abuse, misogyny/sexism and violence towards women.

Not just BASED on a true story, but an ACTUAL true story )
