Elvis is an anagram of lives
Elvis is Alive. The Complete Conspiracy by Xavient Haze
Publishers; Adventure Unlimited Press
On its back cover it says this - The book includes the complete comic strip "Elvis Presley:His Story in Pictures" written by Angus Allan and illustrated by Arthur Ranson. First published in Look-in magazine, this marks the first time the strip has been republished in its entirety since 1982 and the first time it has ever been available outside the United Kingdom"
There has been some falling out amongst comic artists and writers over the result of the American Presidential election.
Comic book creator Humberto Ramos (Champions/Marvel) has chosen, current commitments aside, not to attend comicons in US states that voted to elect Trump. The suggestion is that this is not pique but concern for his safety - which would make sense during a period of increased hate crime.

Polish comics - Polskie komiksy
The market for comics in Poland has grown rapidly over the past few years with an increasing number of Polish comic books and magazines.
It seems that The People's Republic of Poland discouraged the term komiks as a 'demoralising Western influence' and they were actually illegal and forbidden from 1947 to 1957. Instead the terms historyjki obrazkowe (graphic stories)' or 'c kolorowe zeszyty ( color books) were preferred. In modern Poland those terms have largely been forgotten and the formerly discouraged English loanword is now the common term.

The website MuslimGirl.net is run by young Muslim women wishing to speak rather than be spoken for or about.
The excuse for mentioning it here is that they have done a thing on Muslim women as comic-book heroes.
