The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* the first round of Comic-Con International badge sales begins this weekend. It's an amazing thing that people still want to go to this particular show given how many alternatives there are out there and CCI rarely gets enough credit for this. Like right now it feels like the energy is more in toys than maybe the big fantasy movie series of 10 years ago, but the general appetite on display feels about the same.
* CAKE exhibitor applications are open now until December 9. That's a good show with a really strong exhibitor base
