The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Cons, Shows, Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* I'm pretty sure I hadn't seen this announcement for next April's FLUKE
, even though it's been up for a while. I always forget about FLUKE, just generally.
* that smaller show in North Carolina from a bit back set attendance records
* there is a bunch of stuff up now at the Angouleme Festival site
, and not just the official selections. One of the shows for this year's event is focused on Brecht Evens and the young Flemish cartoonists
. That looks good.
* two photo galleries
from the Fantagraphics retail space.
* I'm sort of charmed by this small, Christmas-related comics convention being held this weekend in Ontario
. Really focused specialty conventions are going to be a bigger and bigger thing over the next five years. That includes conventions around single artists, single themes, single geographical locations and those tied into holidays or events.
* finally, Andy Brown from Conundrum sent along this fun report from Expozine
, a report that includes a bunch of pictures like the one below of Michel Rabagliati, Nina Bunjevac and Salgood Sam. My goodness there are a lot of shows now.
