CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from March 19 to March 25, 2011:

1. More than five years later, you'd think that all uses and employments of the cultural construct aspect of the Danish Muhammad cartoons had been exhausted. You'd be wrong, but you'd probably think that.

2. The ReedPOP show C2E2 avoids the sophomore slump with the show it needed to have: greater attendance and more widespread approbation in a way that makes it look like it will be around for a while.

3. Hard-working comics publisher Archaia secures significant investment, which they'll use to target brand development and digital publishing.

Quote Of The Week
"She had obtained them after a marital dispute that was widely covered in the newspapers and also involved frogs." -- The New York Times on the mid-20th century dispensation of Mutt and Jeff. That "also involved frogs" line is great and, moreover, it kind of knows it's great, which is why it's weird to see it tossed out there in a NYT obit.
