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


By Tom Spurgeon

* Kinsee Morlan talks to CCI's David Glanzer and Adam Smith.

* Jamie Coville went to King Con and has pictures and audio recordings.

* I don't always trust attendance figures like this because most people don't really comprehend what 10,000 people looks like in a convention setting, but I'm thrilled Elkhart has a show. That little Goshen-Elkhart corridor is one of America's greatest. Shipshewana!

* I hope this lady finds her coat. I always leave stuff behind at shows and not just my dignity.

* Mocca Festival is barreling down on us. One thing they can do in the SOI iteration that wasn't available to them before is really show off their special guests like Mike Mignola with stuff at the Society building in the weeks leading up to the show. I bet you this is something that most big shows will have in place within three years.

* nice to see Brian Fies on this list of Comic-Con guests.

* finally: I have no idea if bikes and scooters could change the baby-stepping pace of the crowds around the San Diego Convention Center, but I suppose it's a possibility.
