CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from January 4 to January 10, 2014:

1. Amid a wave of nonsensical, PR-driven activity from the recipient enabled by celebrity-interested on-lookers, Daniel Clowes' legal representation issues a cease-and-desist letter in the direction of the actor that plagiarized his short comic "Justin M. Damiano."

2. A short list for the Angouleme Grand Prix is released, showing just how powerful that award is, in part, for primarily rewarding one cartoonist a year (there have been special and anniversary honors).

3. It's not a story I'm writing about until tomorrow, and even then I have a different take on it, but people seem worked up about the fact that Comic-Con is getting rid of the ability to click for four-day attendance with one button and making people click four or five.
