Dave Sim Versus Disney Over Baby Yoda Cerebus?

Dave Sim continues, as he has done for the last few years, to continue to publish Cerebus comic books, as Cerebus In Hell, every month getting a new title, a new #1 and a new weak joke at some aspect of the comic book industry, legacy or reputation – filtered through his own increasingly bizarre viewpoints. The one for May 2021 may be his most trademark-challenging yet. But hey, it's not as if Disney ever calls The Child by Baby Yoda, is it?

He is also reviving his old Swords Of mini-collection format for these comic books that he originally used to collect six or so issues of Cerebus, before he switched to the Phonebook format. Here are the solicits:
