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


By Tom Spurgeon

* more events outside of the San Diego Convention Center, this time building on recent activity in the baseball park.

* everything about the actual event described here sounds gross to me.

* the Crumb room has been retired. I guess it's sort of interesting in that the Eisner Level endures. There are certainly easily discoverable and difficult to reconcile elements of Eisner's legacy -- including some actions that extend beyond art and into industry practice.

* how to apply to Autoptic. Those are nice table prices.

* I actually sort of like the idea of artists having access to wider representation at comics shows, but I really deplore the idea of extending that to attendees and having the convention itself involved in the process. That just seems to be like a dumpster fire in the making.

* finally, all my friends are talking about MoCCA Festival, not this week but next. Looks fun.
