CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from March 31 to April 6, 2012:

1. The civil case brought by Zunar against police and government official in Malaysia for their actions regarding the publication of his books has closed after reopening again this week. A decision is due in May.

2. The Eisner Award nominations are announced, with a lot of attention as to who didn't get a nomination. This includes Jaime Hernandez and his much-lauded story from 2011, "The Love Bunglers."

3. Graphicly shuts down its storefront to focus on a different aspect of their business, basically leaving comiXology in sole possession of a meaningful comics-related digital storefront.

Winners Of The Week
Those involved with Emerald City Comicon, an organization that announced 53K in attendance for the three-day show and an expanded slate of Friday activities for next year's version. That's how you celebrate a 10th anniversary.

Loser Of The Week
This guy.
