CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from February 13 to February 19, 2016:

1. Sparkplug Comic Books announces its plans to shut down this calendar year.

2. The comics industry remembers the late Alvin Buenaventura, a bright star of art- and alt-comics publishing in the post-2000 comics world.

3. The CBLDF announces a this-year move to Portland, Oregon.

Winner Of The Week
The CBLDF. Being in a cheaper location in a thriving comics community on a completely different coast should add a lot energy-wise to the institution.

Losers Of The Week
Fans of Sparkplug. That as a well-loved company, and it's sad that it's going.

Quote Of The Week
"He was inexplicable, the most singular human being I've ever met. There's nobody else in the world even remotely like him. He can't ever be replaced in any way." -- Daniel Clowes on Alvin Buenaventura


this year's comics images are from Fawcett
