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


By Tom Spurgeon

* I almost totally forgot about these Mike Lynch photos from the NCS weekend retreat/celebration.

* this weekend is one of those ridiculous ones, of which there are three or four on the schedule right now. Here's what I have just for Saturday:
+ If I Were In Chicago, I'd Go To This (CAKE)
+ If I Were In Munich, I'd Go To This (Comic Festival Munchen)
+ If I Were In Memphis, I'd Go To This (Memphis Comic Expo)
+ If I Were In Austin, I'd Go To This (New South Fest)
+ If I Were In Brooklyn, I'd Go To This (Grand Comics Festival)
+ If I Were In NYC, I'd Go To This (Special Edition)
+ If I Were In London, I'd Go To This (CECAF)
That's sort of amazing.

* here's a profile of New South Fest.

* this is a nice line-up for the Helsinki Comics Festival, celebrating its 30th year.

* the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival is selling tickets right this moment.

* the show with which I'm involved, Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC), launched its web site last night. Announced were special guests Kate Beaton, Jerry Beck, Bill Griffith, Francoise Mouly, Jeff Smith, Art Spiegelman and Craig Thompson. You can also discern the rough shape of the festival and apply to be an exhibitor. Twitter here. Facebook here. Tumblr here.

* finally, check out the wonderful poster Jim Woodring did for Short Run.
