50 Comics Positives For 2014: We May Have A Small Press Comics Show In LA Now
Comics Arts Los Angeles was just a few weeks ago, but its seemingly successful first year may turn out to be one of the most important comics news stories if it allows that city and a scene growing in compounded fashion a galvanizing, high name-recogition rallying point. The room was young enough to make SPX and MoCCA look like old-time radio cons, had a perfect place on the calendar and felt buzzy in the absolute best way. A city that boasts that many cartoonists, that many stores, and that many old-fashioned comics readers, needs a recurring comics event and they may now have one. For that specific community this may be even more encouraging given how many regional events engage with the more commercial side of comcis-making and all the related industries maybe more than the words and pictures one.
