CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from October 19 to October 25, 2013:

1. The Kirby Family has their petition for a rehearing denied.

2. An astounding private collection of rare Brazilian comics frequently used by researcher and academics was robbed of its most valuable copies in an armed invasion of the home where the collection was housed. The degree of skill employed in finding which ones to carry out the door indicates that someone may have been involved that had seen the collection.

3. Image sells a pair of #1 issues into the Direct Market at 57K each -- returnable, but still an astounding number for non-superhero work and work not from the two biggest mainstream comics companies. They were for the series Velvet and Pretty Deadly.
