CR Week In Review
The top comics-related news stories from June 21 to June 27, 2014:
1. Dan Vado needs $85K
to keep his SLG Publishing afloat. SLG was started in 1986, and has published work from a wide variety of young, many of them very young, including Evan Dorkin, Dylan Williams and Jhonen Vasquez.
2. Charles Burns openly plagiarized
by artist hired by Portuguese company Agua Castello.
3. HeroesCon in Charlotte comes and goes
, by itself a milestone worth noting but also marking the end of comics' traditional but peculiar way of thinking of the convention season: Spring, San Diego, Fall.

Quote Of The Week
"Recently we were forced to relocate because our old building was being torn down. At the time I had a couple of choices, close up altogether or try and make a go of it somewhere else. Not wanting to turn my back on a 28 year old business (which was struggling to begin with) I decided to try and keep going, adding a retail component to our storefront that we did not have before and add some other revenue streams to our gallery store as well as our publishing company like doing contract t-shirt printing and hosting live music. Sure, the smart thing to do was to just quit, but then publishing comics was never a really smart thing either, so go figure." -- Dan Vado
