CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from March 22 to March 28, 2014:

2. The cartoon version of The 99 is banned by a Saudi Arabian policy-making body.

3. Cartoonists join in the protest of the twitter ban in Turkey, cartoonists being a longtime target for censorship and control in that country.

Winner Of The Week
Take your pick.

Losers Of The Week
It's only tangentially related to comics, but the routine use of censorship as a political tool in Turkey is extremely troubling, so anyone responsible for that.
