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


By Tom Spurgeon

* writer, SDCC veteran and comics + culture historian Mark Evanier suggests that one thing that might disrupt Comic-Con International's relationship with San Diego is the city moving in a direction with taxes and policy that favor other aspects of development, like a plan that favors the San Diego Charges.

* I hadn't had APE in my calendar until reminded. That's the week of NYCC -- October 8-9. I think that's a good place on the calendar for that one.

* that Stan Lee/Steve Wozniak name-bearing show is off to Tokyo in December. I like the idea of December shows.

* the great Rich Tommaso is doing pre-convention sketches for pick up at Dragon Con, this weekend. Rich's originals look great, and that way you'll be guaranteed to get something you like at the show.

* finally, Chip Zdarsky's one-man convention has a better guest list than most conventions.
