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

image

By Tom Spurgeon

image* it's CAKE mania right now. CAKE, CAKE, CAKE. That's a thriving and on-the-rise cartooning community that could use the continued success of a show like that one as a galvanizing event. What I've heard back from people that have worked with the show is all good, too. I hope this latest edition -- back in last year's venue -- goes well. Sometimes it takes a while for the audience to grow accustomed to attending a show.

* if North American cartoonists are going to start attending shows in the UK, they better bring their A game.

* John Porcellino reports on a weekend in Fort Wayne, attending the Appleseed Con there.

* all the really good photos from the NCS weekend seemed to feature Mark Tatulli. The best set of pictures I've seen so far came from Alan Gardner's report.

* Dakota McFadzean got to go to Sweden and all we got is this well-written and lavishly illustrated report.

* finally, the Columbus Dispatch does a write-up on the Wexner's Dan Clowes summer focus. I hope you'll get there if you can.
