CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from June 22 to June 28, 2013:

1. BOOM! acquires Archaia.

2. Thai cartoonist meets with police officials about defamation job concerning Thai prime minister.

3. The framework of the forthcoming Ghost Rider copyright trial is set. While the initial articles I saw said jury trial, I guess hearing from a couple of you lawyer-types this is still up in the air, with Marvel preferring a bench decision of some sort.

Winner Of The Week
Let's say Daniel Clowes. Having a big exhibit open up in your home region is a big deal, one of the big, positive life events.

Loser Of The Week
The idea of Superman as Jesus.

Quote Of The Week
It is with tremendous *~feeling~* that we inform you ALL COMMENTS from the previous version of ComicsAlliance... well, they didn't make it.-- the ComicsAlliance twitter account
