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

By Tom Spurgeon

* an NCSF grant goes to the Kenosha show.

* Rob Salkowitz crunches some general convention numbers. I was a little distressed when he moved in the direction of geek opinion-leading, but I'm glad he's actually going to do some research into that area rather than assume those broad claims to be truth. I know that anecdotally, the conventional wisdom as to geek endorsement of this or that at a big show seems to work out in terms of actual success just about as frequently as flipping a coin.

* I missed this nice report on FLUKE. This photo parade, too.

* finally, Peter Bagge made a poster for the Expo in Oslo.
