CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from November 30 to December 6, 2013:

1. Dan Nadel announces that award-winning boutique comics, culture and art book publisher PictureBox Inc. is done.

2. Fantagraphics makes its ambitious crowd-funding goal for the Spring 2014 season with $72K+ to spare; I was a contributor, too, and look forward to my incentive. Aside from the issue of Fantagraphics being a virtuous publisher worthy of support, the crowd-funder itself was extremely well-run.

3. A massive flurry of comics people in need dominates the pre-holiday comics community landscape.

Winner Of The Week

Losers Of The Week
Folks that won't consider the idea of appropriation of art as a creator's right, or that cast the issue according to what legalities allow. I think there's a better way there.

Quote Of The Week
"I can't stop you from ripping off my work, but I can fucking floor it to new heights, destroy you in my wake, and make you eat my dust." -- Hellen Jo
