The Never-Ending, Four-Color Festival: Shows And Events
By Tom Spurgeon
* we are right in the thick of it now. Full speed ahead. I may do a stand-alone on the MoCCA Festival, but right now you can just go to the Secret Acres site and read their report. That's a remarkably strong set of criticisms for people intimately involved with the show.
* this weekend it's Linework NW. I'll be there. I'm interested in their split-exhibitor strategy. The bulk of exhibitors for the show are exhibiting Saturday or Sunday, which is something that maybe you could only pull off in Portland with that much hometown talent. But it's a great idea if it works.
* Baltimore Comic-Con has begun announcing guests. That's a well-liked regional show with a lot of national draw for guests from the mainstream American comic book world. Plus, Baltimore's a great city and you're close to a bunch of stuff to do.
