CR Week In Review

imageThe top comics-related news stories from September 20 to September 26, 2014:

1. Marvel and the Kirby Family settle ahead of a potential pick-up for review by the Supreme Court Of The United States. Terms were not disclosed. The joint statement contained a reference to promoting Kirby's leviathan-sized role in the creation of the Marvel Comics universe, which I fully support.

2. The convention in Salt Lake City makes a formal response to charges it is trading on Comic-Con International's claim to the "comic con" phrasing.

3. Albert Uderzo and his daughter reconcile several days after a lawsuit filed by Sylvie was dismissed by a French court.

Losers Of The Week
Book banners. I consider censorship a mental affliction that settles upon societies for varying periods of time, it is that counterintuitive.
