CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from June 18 to June 24, 2016:

1. HeroesCon quietly adds attendance to what was otherwise by most appearance a standard edition of the long-running, comics-focused show, suggesting a reality for convention in this Age Of Conventions.

2. Second Dwayne McDuffie award to Svetlana Chmakova's Awkward.

3. The new Howard The Duck comic book series was announced as canceled, another sign of the times whereby smaller mainstream efforts see the bottom fall out pretty quickly. The Chip Zdarsky/Joe Quinones effort ran 16 issues but ended on an issue #11 because of reboot-happy publishing strategies.

Winner Of The Week
Chmakova. That's a nice award, with a strong legacy and a focused mission.

Losers Of The Week
The idea of offbeat comics at the big, mainstream companies.

Quote Of The Week
"Hip Hop and comics were my genesis." -- Ed Piskor

By Request Extra: Linda Medley Could Use Some Support

image

There is a patreon for the illustrator and comics-maker here. Paypal-able at medleylinda2@gmail.com. I'm not sure exactly what's going on beyond the fact there's some need there, and that the person who brought it to my attention has never advocated for that kind of mention on this site before now. I hope you'll consider joining me.
