CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from October 5 to October 11, 2013:

1. CRNI: Akram Raslan, RIP. That's their report and unconfirmed, but they are reporting it as a fact and if true would be the biggest regime murder of a cartoonist perhaps ever.

2. Direct Market stores sold a hell of a lot of Villains Month DC serial comic books, despite the fact that orders were screwed up on the 3-D cover version of those books.

3. A stunt-driven issue of Walking Dead marking a) the comic's 10th anniversary, b) a new plotline, c) the return of the TV show to the Fall line-up should be the best-selling North American comic book of the year.

Winner Of The Week
Columbia University, scoring Al Jaffee's archives and letting everyone know they'll be around in the archives and originals collection for the conceivable future.

Quote Of The Week
"Here in the United States we are experts in the knowledge that editorial cartooning is a dying art. In other areas of the world, however, it is an art that people die for." -- Dr. Robert Russell
