Chris Oliveros Steps Down As D&Q Publisher
Noted journalist/commentator Jeet Heer reacts to the news of announced changes at Canadian indy-comics publisher Drawn & Quarterly:
"The fact that Chris is able to pass along his company to a new generation is also a rare achievement in Canada, where many small presses tend to be one-generation affairs.
