The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* a lot of the anticipatory chatter I hear is for Heroes Con, with some joy expressed over an appearance by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez
. One of the all-time great drawers at the premier drawing-culture show makes a lot of sense.
sounds like it was a good time. A lot of creators take the extra time to tell me they like that show, which is a blessing for the communities in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver itself. That was a hell of a special guest list.
* lots of cosplay at veteran show Motor City.
The article claims tens of thousands in attendance.
* finally: Comic Con Palm Springs has bought
a young, regional animation festival. I can personally attest that's a model that can work. Palm Springs' relative isolation might work against it, although it would definitely have the hotel infrastructure necessary to grow.
