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


By Tom Spurgeon

* as seems eminently reasonable given their development of the FanX name, Salt Lake City's comics convention will likely move in that direction for a re-name on forthcoming shows. I don't think that will have any significant effect on the show.

* the Horton Plaza may be in the latter stages of a long decline: no anchor store, paid parking, a decrease in patrons, robberies. I've bought camera equipment, several meals and at least two pair of shoes there during SDCCs, and I'm likely not the only one who's found the place useful while attending the big show. It's interesting to go to enough comic book shows you see the hosting city move in cycles.

* this is a truth. Plus I already know I missed Baltimore and Fumetto.

* I know at least Stan Lee and Neal Adams will make the early-January Wizard show in New Orleans. Hell I'm tempted to pay my own way to the early-January Wizard show in New Orleans. Someone please put together a comic arts festival down there.

* finally: see Thi Bui at UVA in 2018.
