I highly recommend Ashley Quach’s Sassquach comics. Here’s a panel from Mickey, Goofy and Donald’s Boys’ Night, in which things get rather unconfortable and bittersweet for the aging Disney characters.

I’m glad Mrs. Quach didn’t give a rat’s ass about copyright, as Nina Paley (of Sita Sings the Blues) put it in one of the most eloquent defenses of free culture I’ve read. I’m not at all a copyright abolitionist, but I believe the protected timeframes are ridiculous and that licensing should only ever be required for commercial use. Like Paley, I already dedicated a couple of videos to the public domain and intend to continue to do so when possible and the time is right. It would be very good if more artists followed suit.
