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


By Tom Spurgeon

* MoCCA Festival made available its Becky Cloonan-drawn poster image.

* with the grand prix being awarded on the front end of the Angouleme Festival, I was interested to see where news might coalesce early this week. The prix revelation (three books or less) award to South Korean cartoonist Choi Kyung-jin looks like the feature story of choice.

* "It is common practice at shows for the trash at the end of the shows to be raided by some vendors to find things that other vendors have left behind." There's one for the Team Comics rally meeting. Anyhow, good catch by Bleeding Cool on a story concerning illegality among con organizers.

* a recent cruise-ship comics show profiled. That's a model that makes sense to me. I think we'll see a couple of variation on that basic model, too.

* finally, George Perez refocuses his post-election boycott.
