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


By Tom Spurgeon

* I was surprised to see the header image; I thought I'd changed it, but I'm just thinking about the new "forthcoming" image from San Diego with the lighted stairs.

* it's CXC all the time for me right now. I hope you'll find something to attend if you're in the area. It might be easier to access from in here.

* MICE, Short Run and CAB are still yet to come and are still all three highly anticipated by their target audiences. I have no idea if this will bring another interest in discussion issues of where festival money comes from, but it might.

* finally: the Harvey Awards announces its Hall of Fame: Mike Mignola, Alison Bechdel and five cartoons aligned with EC/MAD. I still wish the Harvey had distinguished itself from the Eisners by embracing a humor role, or a full New York City identity. But I don't get the things I wish for all too frequently.
