The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* it's Heroes Con this weekend. I'll be interested in what the attendance is like for that show. It's a great audience, and a very commission and drawing-focused show. People have a lot of affection and they should: there are a lot of fans down there for a wide range of cartoonists and there is some great back-issue shopping. I do wonder after the physical size of the show related to that audience, and will scour the Internet for photos and perception tweets. I wish I could be there. If you're going, buy something from Patrick Dean -- he's had a hell of a week.
* other big shows this weekend are in Denver and in Ann Arbor. The Denver show has been very financially successful so far, according to what I hear. The Ann Arbor show, focused on kids comics, has grown to the point where it's become a key show for a key comics audience.
