The professional and super-devoted fan culture immediately the surrounding North American comic-book culture cycles through a specific, intense, sprawling, multiple-day discussion about harassment and sexism in the industry spring-boarding from accusations made by two women -- one of whom works in comics, one of whom used to -- about the personal conduct of writer Brian Wood in terms of social interaction.

2. Lucy Shelton Caswell awarded the EC Segar Award from King Features Syndicate during the second half of the opening festivities for the opening of the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum. She is the founding curator.

3. Signe Wilkinson robbed at gunpoint on Sunday night, turns around and makes a cartoon of it by mid-week.

Loser Of The Week
The reputation of certain comics public spaces as safe places, whether or not they should have had that reputation to begin with.

Quote Of The Week
"When I was learning to read and such comic-book creators as Walt Kelly and Carl Barks were telling me fresh stories every month, I also learned that what I didn't buy one month would be gone forever the next. I haunted the newsstand and planned my allowance accordingly, because I wasn't going to get another chance at those issues. I certainly was never going to find them at the library." -- Maggie Thompson
