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


By Tom Spurgeon

* I will end use of the photo pictured above by end of year. I like the photo because while it just looks like a mess of people there are actually several recognizable stalwarts of the peak-at-2012-or-so era of SPXers. I wish there were someone doing archiving of the scene like that -- an SPX book like Jackie Estrada SDCC photo books would be kind of amazing. I also like that one of the people in this photo is Chris Oarr, a key early figure who is not of the era depicted.

* a local show bearing a comic-con name described.

* it was wonderful to see Patrick Dean exhibiting at Heroes Con this year, and all love to Dean and his amazing family.

* pins and badges at CCI.

* here are the roads that will be closed for SDCC. Plan your walk up the street to jump in a Lyft and head to the airport accordingly.

* finally: we're in a toy-dominant era for CCI, and I say that as a longtime and continuing fan of their comics coverage.
