CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from October 6 to October 12, 2012:

1. Sedition charges were dropped against Indian cartoonist Aseem Trivedi; political clubs masquerading as symbol-desecration laws remain pointed at Trivedi, who could go to jail for them.

2. Ali Ferzat was finally able to accept the Sakharov Prize after not being able to because of fears for his safety and the difficulties of travel.

3. NYCC gets underway in New York, and brings with it an explosion of mostly mainstream comics-related publishing announcements, a lot of the "we're moving this person onto this title" variety but still a lot of announcements.

Winner Of The Week
Lee Salem, putting the final touches on what will be one of the great comics careers in our lifetimes.

Loser Of The Week
Stan Lee Media. Just because. I guess all it takes is one judge, though.

Quote Of The Week
"We will get a decent scan of this soon, but here is the cartoon Richard Thompson drew in the middle of his brain surgery. The dialogue balloon says 'Whee!' and the words at the bottom say 'NOT TO SCALE.' His surgeon said they all got a big kick out of it." -- Amy Thompson
