CR Week In Review
The top comics-related news stories from April 5 to April 11, 2014:
1. Amazon.com 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 Amazon.com 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.
