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


By Tom Spurgeon

* I am really looking forward to the 25th anniversary SPX, this year's Short Run and our own, fifth CXC. I think we're going to have a Fall of good shows across the board. That whole world and its relationship to comics itself, is changing rapidly. I get asked questions that your average con-goer didn't even conceive of five years, and I think that's all for the greater good.

* interesting to read about additional security at the Silicon Valley show. I bet every show that goes off between now and next February has had that conversation.

* here's a snapshot of the show in Indianapolis that might describe with some accuracy an average show of the wider-media type.

* here's what programming will look like at Rose City.

* finally: here's an article about research and academic opportunities at San Diego con, including the framework for sharing/exploring those elements provided by the show itself.
