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


By Tom Spurgeon

* count Phoenix among those shows that isn't messing around with recent court support of CCI's claim on the phrase comic con.

* Stan Lee has a few more Wizard shows planned. No idea as I"m typing this how much of his planned schedule he's going to keep post harassment complaint.

* speaking of Wizard, I know about a half-dozen people for whom Wizard's New Orleans show and its celebrity driven approach as become an event to attend because they get to go to New Orleans. Someone please start a small press show comics festival in that great city, please.

* here's a show in Kuala Lumpur, profiled.

* finally: here's a piece about a comics festival in Texas coming to an end after this year's show later this month. I think I could see a number of shows ending that started up in the crush of bunches of shows starting up: it's a hard gig, and the field is very crowded.
