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


By Tom Spurgeon

* the 2013 iteration of Geek Girl Con has announced for October 19-20. Specifically-focused cons are going to be all the thing in cons for the next five years, I'm telling you.

* HeroesCon is offering three-day passes now. It will be here before you know it.

* speaking of shows that will be here almost immediately, the Emerald City Comicon is in the "adding guests like mad" phase of its publicity roll-out. ECCC does an excellent job of providing all of the not-comics aspect of a full-service convention while protecting the comics portion of the show from too much interaction with those aspects.

* am I just not finding anything, or was there literally no writing at all on-line about Genghis Con?

* FIDB announced a partnership with Cultura. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, and I'm likely wrong, but I think Angouleme was looking for a partnership like this one to make up for one that's now expired, right?

* the nice folks at Comic-Con are accepting pitches for panel presentations at WonderCon.
