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


By Tom Spurgeon

* a lot of the anticipatory chatter I hear is for Heroes Con, with some joy expressed over an appearance by Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez. One of the all-time great drawers at the premier drawing-culture show makes a lot of sense.

* VanCAF sounds like it was a good time. A lot of creators take the extra time to tell me they like that show, which is a blessing for the communities in Portland, Seattle and Vancouver itself. That was a hell of a special guest list.

* lots of cosplay at veteran show Motor City. The article claims tens of thousands in attendance.

* finally: Comic Con Palm Springs has bought a young, regional animation festival. I can personally attest that's a model that can work. Palm Springs' relative isolation might work against it, although it would definitely have the hotel infrastructure necessary to grow.
