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


By Tom Spurgeon

* there's an open letter at the Festival Workers Association site from a number of cartoonists regarding changes they'd like to see with show. I'm in fully agreement with about half of these and sympathetic to the rest. I'm thrilled to see a comics group advocate for a better situation for cartoonists, and hope that we all end up on the better side of things. I'm happy to engage with any of the issues raised via e-mail.

* ICAF 2019 has their programming up. Looks like a good one.

* the heart of the MSU Comics Forum roars to life tomorrow. If Angouleme is the first start to the festival year generally and ECCC the mainstream/indie side of thing, you can argue the Forum is the opening bell for academic conferences and alt-shows. Go if you can: Seth and Qianna Whitted are both excellent speakers.

* finally: God bless each and every Indie Comics Fair.
