CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from April 5 to April 11, 2014:

1. and comiXology announced the acquisition of the latter by the former.

2. In the midst of convention season, the rapidity with which Comic-Con International hotels were divvied up underlines their continuing appeal.

3. Oni Press breaks with their longtime packing and office supply company over their CEO's support of political action groups targeting marriage rights.

Winner Of The Week
I'd like to say Ulli Lust or Gene Luen Yang, but I'm guessing those invested in comiXology at a level they'll be rewarded financially by this purchase did very well.

Loser Of The Week
Lots of prominent pros and comics industry people in the Comic-con hotel lottery, which should drive attention to the continuing struggle to negotiate the intense demand for attendance at that show.

Quote Of The Week
"We can keep our company culture." -- David Steinberger
