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

By Tom Spurgeon

* read Clarkisha Kent for the unique disappointments of the Universal FanCon implosion. There's a well-written, very thorough article here with a ton of detail, if you want to know more about what happened more generally. Good work on that one. It looks like a cross between early principal in-fighting that turned grasping and cynical and outright fraud intended from the very beginning. Sounds like it was clearly dead a while ago, too.

* Tom Hiddleston's con memories are likely more handsome than yours.

* both of these TCAF posters are ridiculously attractive.

* Comic-Con continues to roll out its special guest list. No one books special guests quite like Comic-Con for that show, and I've been impressed studying their lists for the last few years how they hit a bunch of different sets of targets.

* finally: this is an impressive list of con disasters.
