CR Week In Review
The top comics-related news stories from December 14 to December 20, 2013:
1. The deadline passes
for New York based DC Comics employees making the decision whether or not to relocate to Burbank.
2. Two horrible
acts of harassment throw an end-of-year spotlight on of the comics community's lingering and egregious problems.
3. Stumptown, one of the original artist-directed small press festivals, ends its stand-alone event orientation
for a partnership with Rose City Comic-Con and a focus on its non-festival programs. It takes four days
for a festival to be announced that same weekend -- a spiritual replacement at best, for the small size of it, but very much its own show with a potentially bright future.
Winner Of The Week
Loser Of The Week
Let's say Shia LeBeouf and his rampant plagiarizing
here because I have no place to put him.
Quote Of The Week
"I had the normal trajectory for my generation: superhero stuff (mostly Marvel), then slowly losing interest in that whole deal. Still loving comics, but not getting what I wanted out of them. I've told this story too many times (that might happen a lot during this), but at the moment I was about to give up, I ventured into the back room "smutty" section of the comic store, and picked up two comics: Love and Rockets
#20 and Yummy Fur
#1, and my life changed. It really was one of those moments -- everything changed, right then and there. Something I thought I knew about comics, but had never really seen with my own two eyes -- that they were real art -- that was now real
. I had proof. You could do anything with them." -- Zak Sally
