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


By Tom Spurgeon

image* I missed the opening, but this Melted City 4 show in NYC seems worth a drop-in.

* it's true that the CBLDF Thursday night party has become one of three if not one of one wider comics-industry related events going on during CCI weekend. There'd always been a certain comics element there but there was a big surge in more mainstream creators a few years back. Nice crowd.

* actor and comedian Yvette Nicole Brown will step in for Chris Hardwick to moderate his high-profile CCI panels. I think that's good, and cringe slightly only in that some people wouldn't be okay with it and might take it out on Brown. I do think it's interesting this push came from panel sponsors. Hardwick was accused of a full buffet of mistreatment of a person with whom he was in a longtime, significant relationship: Chloe Dykstra.

* a lot of people I know from high school and whatnot ask me about the Conan O'Brien show's presence at Comic-Con. I only ever talk to people that couldn't get tickets. I have managed to see O'Brien and show guests at the restaurant at the US Grant a couple of times, though.

* finally: we've all thought it.
