CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from May 24 to May 30, 2014:

1. Well-regarded working cartoonist Bruno Maïorana takes a long, serious look at comics-making as a vocation and declares, roughly, "I don't think I can do this anymore."

2. Comic-Con International engages with a petition for them to have a public anti-harassment policy in part by pointing out they already do have a public anti-harassment policy.

3. Wiley Miller wins the Reuben.

Winner Of The Week
Miller. There were a lot of awards-winners this week, and god bless them all, but a Reuben is a Reuben.

Losers Of The Week
A lot of people running around the feet of these prose-publishing giants. It's tempting to name fans of the old way of doing BEA, but that way is so many years gone now that there doesn't seem an easy connection there.

Quote Of The Week
"You can see the Comic Con logic: Draw in rabid fans across genres and media any way you can. What publishers would like to know is whether they will come for the books -- and eventually buy them." -- Boris Kachka
