This week in the news, Comichron report indicates comics market is growing, major graphic novel distributor stops sales to book stores and comic shops, Batman/Superman returns from Josh Williamson and David Marquez, Year of the Villain will end in a giant battle, continue through 2020, DC will release 8-bit series leading up to Batman: Curse of the White Knight, and X-Men Monday kicks into high gear tomorrow with mutant romance questions answered.
