The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* it would be nice if everyone would use this service, at least to see if it's useful, but I don't have a lot of faith in that happening in a time where people don't do much outreach beyond posting something on facebook and maybe twitter.
* over 200,000 tickets sold in NYCC. Congratulations to them. I'm not into the dick-measuring aspect of this vis-a-vis other shows, but with NYCC the best thing about it from an outsider's perspective is their enthusiastic and jam-packed audience, which does mean greater attendance at a lot of panels that aren't TV shows or whatever. There's a similar effect at other well-attended shows. And to think that at one time NYC seemed a risky place to have a show.
* I think this tweet means that there will be an Emmanuel Guibert exhibit at this year's Angouleme Festival, but I wouldn't go by me.
