The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Cons, Shows, Events

By Tom Spurgeon

* It's all about the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library and Museum this weekend, with the big opening of their new facility and their every-other-year cartooning festival, North America's secret yet openly awesome comics convention. Articles like this one profile the opening part. An academic conference over the next two days eases us into the cartoonist-presentation heavy weekend. I'll be there. Today I'm talking about Pogo -- actually, I'll just be chaperoning a bunch of scholars doing that talking in front of an audience. Hope I see you there.

* Image Expo announcing for early 2014 was big news.

* I'd say Comic-Con making official their choice of Anaheim for a second straight year in terms of the WonderCon event is bigger.

* Brian Gardes on GeekGirlCon.

* finally, a longtime-coming Rose City report.
