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

By Tom Spurgeon

* the initial SPX 2014 exhibitors list is up.

* please submit to the Ignatz Awards if you're eligible. You have until the end of May. I know that I find those awards very helpful in finding new works that are starting to build in buzz with younger cartoonists, so as many eligible works that can be considered, the better off I am. So yeah, do it for me.

* here's a report on Jillian Tamaki and Mariko Tamaki at Politics & Prose. I look forward to seeing that one; I'm told it's very good.

* the cartoonist Kate Beaton has a short post up here about her time at the recent event in Stockholm.

* this Lance Fensterman interview gets into C2E2 numbers: they're up (to about 63K), and they're using more of the space available to them with that giant facility. The stuff about acquisition/growth policies and the observation on growing gender balance are two other things worth noting.

* here's the beginnings of a lengthy wrap-up on this year's Doug Wright Awards.

* Tom Heintjes handicaps the NCS awards.

* finally, a couple of posters I hadn't seen yet, for SPX and ELCAF.
