The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* TCAF is still on the mind, even though in comics terms that was 100 years ago. That's such a powerful show. I was impressed this year with how many first-rate exhibitions they have, but within and without show walls. That's an element of shows that has become more important to me the older I get.
* next up for me is CAKE, and then maybe Heroes Con or the Ann Arbor show depending on resources and so on. I'd like to do Heroes because of its 35th anniversary but that is an expensive show to do this year and while there are some work-arounds, that's not how I usually approach shows. It's like with TCAF I used to try to work around just taking a car service to the big airport. It's hard to have that kind of energy when you get older.
