The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* here's some more advance press for the ACE Universe show headed to ECCC-serviced Seattle. I think that's a pretty easy feature to seel a newspaper. One thing that discourages me about this becoming a competing model is that name is so terrible. It's like a hardware show name.
* just noticed that Wizard moved its Columbus show back to June from post-San Diego Con. I wonder if that means the show has done well enough that it's no longer on the rumored chopping block. Two years ago in particular that looked like a show they were running out there to return lousy attendance figures.
* there's been a lot of regional and local press coverage of smaller shows recently, but it's all celebrity guests and drooling-over-cosplay pieces so I'll pass.
* finally: TCAF TCAF TCAF. That's all my friends are talking about, anyway.
