CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from June 14 to June 20, 2014:

1. Mehmet Duzenli starts his jail term.

2. Well-liked major regional show HeroesCon gets underway in Charlotte, complete with their first anti-harassment policy.

3. South Carolina's governor signs an idiotic reprisal-type measure into law, punishing two state schools for daring to assign works with LGBT elements by making them host core American documents courses, as if that were the logical inverse of the objected-to works.

Winner Of The Week
Joe Sacco, who will soon have one of the best comics exhibition in terms of how his The Great War will be treated and the number of people that will get to see it.

Losers Of The Week
Everyone in South Carolina that got us to the point where legislators are punishing schools for their students learning about Alison Bechdel's life.

Quote Of The Week
"I don't think I understood when I was fourteen years old why the X-Men resonated with me so much. I know in retrospect that this portrait of a constructed family of outcasts offered the hope that my future would not necessarily be one of loneliness and rejection." -- Andrew Wheeler
