CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from December 27, 2014 to January 2, 2015:

1. The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum announces the acquisition of the Jeff MacNelly collection. That's a key editorial cartoonist and cartoonist generally, particularly for a Midwestern institution like the Billy.

2. Danielle Corsetto announces she'll be shutting down her long-running Girls With Slingshots.

3. The Best-Of-2014 lists keep coming, like this one from the all-seeing eye of Great Britain, Paul Gravett. The consensus? There is no critical consensus.

Winner Of The Week
The Billy.

Loser Of The Week
Anyone hoping that this year's Best-Of lists would call attention a small group of five or six comics that they could pick up and read. Those days seem over.
