Festivals Extra: SPX Posts Its Ambitious 2014 Programming Slate

Here. Bill Kartalopoulos does the programming for the Small Press Expo, and I think his work over the years has exceeded anyone's expectations for solid, rewarding, challenging programming show to show, year to year. So I always look forward to see what he has planned. He's a great moderator, too, so it's nice to see him doing so many of the heavyweight spotlights and the Fremok panel.

It's also worth walking through that list just to see what's out there. I mean, you get the heavyweights and their spotlight panels, sure, but one of the first panels is Katie Skelly moderating Meghan Turbitt, Eleanor Davis and Julia Gfrörer, all of whom are funny and articulate and intelligent. That's just not a panel you would have seen five years ago because of the relative progression of each panelist's career (also because Davis tends to avoid doing shows). Like comics in general, well-run comics panel programming can offer a massive return on your time investment.
