CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from September 21 to September 27, 2013:

1. Akram Raslan feared dead.

2. The BCA releases its short list of nominees.

3. Retailer announces move away from new comics; whether that's a sign of weakness (a shop earmarking new comics as unworkable) or health (you can have a comic shop that specializes in old comics) concerning the Direct Market remains to be seen.

Winner Of The Week

Loser Of The Week
Ed Kramer.

Quote Of The Week
"Part of it is just enjoying working on my own schedule, and not having to do comics where the end of every story is that everyone puts on costumes and goes and punches each other." -- Ed Brubaker
