CR Week In Review


The top comics-related news stories from January 6 to January 12, 2007:

1. Danish imams will not be prosecuted for their Fall 2005 international agitation on the subject of Muhammed caricatures in the newspaper Jyllands-Posten that many believe played a major, if not the major, role in February 2006's riots.

2. Stephanie Fierman believed out at DC. Fierman was the first major hire by DC in revamping its sales and marketing department, moving away from slavish devotion to the direct market to more of a hybrid DM/bookstore affair.

3. Steve Krantz passed away at age 83: Krantz was one of the first, one of the most important, and certainly had the most varied projects of all the Hollywood producers who would take an interest in comics properties, changing the comics industry with their deals.
