CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from August 9 to August 15, 2014:

1. Team Cul De Sac reports that the Watterson/Pastis Pearls Before Swine collaboration strip originals brought in the neighborhood of $70K at auction, bringing the total raised by the anti-Parkinson's Disease charitable effort to around $200K.

2. A brief professional registration snafu at NYCC that surfaced last week gets taken care of with passes restored, throwing the spotlight on how shows have begun to handle the massive influx of interest in shows from a variety of communities. Okay, let's be honest, we mostly paid attention to Robin Williams and Ferguson all week, not even in that order.

3. Nobrow has begun announcing specific North American releases for the their books.

Quote Of The Week
