MIKE DIANA OFFICIAL WEBSITE COMIX ORIGINAL ART UNDERGROUND FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Official MIKE DIANA Website
In 1994, underground cartoonist Mike Diana was thrown in jail for 4 days without bail on obscenity charges, for publishing, advertising, and selling his zine BOILED ANGEL.
Mike was on probation for 3 years, terms included fines of $3000, no contact with minors, 1280 hours of community service, maintain full time employment, and at his expense, see a psychiatrist and take journalism courses; AND no drawing for his personal use... his home was subject to unannounced searches by local police to make sure he was complying.


June 4, 1996: a ruling by Largo, FL Judge Douglas Baird declared Mike Diana's zines, Boiled Angel #7 and #ATE obscene. He said he personally found Diana's comics "patently offensive" and stated "the evident goal of the appellant's publication is to portray shocking and graphic pictures of sexual conduct so it will be noticed...." Mike Diana was served with another 2 years of probation, including $2000 in fines, and same probationary terms.

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund estimated over $56,000 has been spent on Mike's case to date. "It's futile that Mike's case is appealed to the State court as the State of Florida's history of overturning is nil." stated Susan Alston from the CBLDF

special signed postcard (some with original drawings) with America orders
while supplies last!

"The book America, covering more than two decades of Diana's work, shows a magnified reflection
of the society that deemed his artwork a crime. Much of Diana's work portrays outsiders repeatedly
being punished by the unforgiving nature of their surroundings; where the sensitive types are
gangraped, tortured, dismembered, pissed upon and left for dead. Drawing parallels with the
Franz Kafka book of the same title wherein oppressive and intangible systems force scorned
individuals to plead their innocence in front of remote and mysterious figures of authority."
