CR Week In Review


The top comics-related news stories from August 19 to August 25, 2006:

1. Muhammed cartoons: the riots have ended, the ill feelings continue.

2. The 9/11 Report: A Graphic Adaptation rolls out to big-time publicity and big-time initial sales.

3. Cold Cut dumps their tiered ordering system.

Winner of the Week
That new 9/11 Report graphic novel adaptation. Despite taking a few brutal shots from the critics, sales look great.

Loser of the Week
The Quills, an awards program with a TV show and a graphic novels category that somehow got to the announcement stage before someone realized that one of the graphic novels nominated was a prose book. Not the dumbest thing we ever heard of, though.

Quote of the Week
"I don't take drugs anymore. I knew a guy who couldn't remember his wife's face." -- Jim Woodring
