CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from November 17 to November 23, 2012:

1. Steve Bell continued to negotiate charges of anti-Semitism over a recent cartoon.

2. The CBLDF names new board members and officer slate.

3. Bal Thackeray died in Mumbai. This is of course major political news for that part of the world, but in terms of comics it's worth noting for how Thackeray's cartooning past was consistently used I think mostly to humanize him as someone that had an artistic career before his political life; running a satirical magazine and doing some pointed editorial cartooning was also a part of his political development.

Winner Of The Week
Brian Basset

Loser Of The Week
Unfairly-maligned flesh-having super-villains of the Marvel Universe.

Quote Of The Week
