The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* ComicsPro sent out a press release last week that indicated they'll be doing their popular annual meeting in Portland two of the next three times they have them, and that they're looking for a floating meeting at another point during the year to hit locations they haven't hit yet. The Portland meetings will be February 22-24, 2018 and February 20-22, 2020. The 2019 and the first of the floaters have yet to be determined.
* NYCC is an odd show from a comics perspective... the only comics company that gets profiled here is one I've never heard of.
* Rob Salkowitz covers ReedPOP's acquisition of the MCM shows over in the UK. They've been aggressive about their move overseas given the traditional glacier-like speed of the conventions business. A lot of people like ReedPOP's spin on the San Diego formula, so I assume any show they'll buy will benefit.
