from Largehearted Boy Review by Benn Ray
In the 1990s, Mike Diana became a martyr and an icon for alternative cartoonists everywhere. We was persecuted and prosecuted for his art - with a judge even issuing a sentence preventing him from making that art and police raids to ensure that sentence was being followed. This handsome two-volume slip-cased box set not only catches us up on what Diana has been doing since then (one volume containing comics and one containing art), it makes a damn fine argument of what many of us knew at the time: that what the courts were doing back in the 1990s was engaging in censorship of art it did not understand and like. Diana's art isn't easy - it's disturbing, violent, sexual and perverse - a pointed reflection of American culture itself. (Posted on 4/2/14)
