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


By Tom Spurgeon

* exhibitor applications for BellCAF are open. That show is March 31.

* FIBD has carved out its traditional place on the January 2019 calendar.

* the artist Tom Williams sent word that PIX has canceled for 2018 but plans to do 2019. I think there's room for a Toonseum-oriented comics show in Pittsburgh; they just haven't found exactly the right formula yet. The 2017 show seemed like a sturdy model on which to build, so I hope they're back next year.

* many of my friends are oriented towards ECCC at this point, which is still some ways off.

* here's a report from DC's event in Washington, DC over MLK Jr. weekend. I think it's a potentially important variation on the festival/convention event, one that could serve a variety of purposes for these companies.

* finally, the great John Porcellino has announced 2018 tour dates for his new book, From Lone Mountain.
