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


By Tom Spurgeon

* the Lakes International Comic Art Festival has announced its first round of guests for their mid-October show. There will be some scrutiny about their guest list overall after accusations and responses to accusations about the content of the list led to some turbulence with last year's show.

* Tingfest, the only comics festival that matters, has announced its initial infrastructure and guest list.

* every condolence possible to the family and friends of the young woman who according to the gofundme here lost her life due to complications from a severe asthma attack at the Emerald City show last weekend.

* here's some advice for potential exhibitors on how to get into the curated MICE event.

* the show with which I work, CXC, is still taking applications for exhibiting at its 2018 show. Looks like Long Beach is open for business, too.

* still can't get over what a great get this is.

* finally: I always have fun reading people grateful for their experience after a con or festival.
