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


By Tom Spurgeon

* SPX has picked up Brandon Graham and Phoebe Gloeckner, a couple of heavy hitters, as late additions. Raina Telgemeier is unable to make it.

* there is an amazingly lengthy con report from Randy Golden that begins here, about a Wizard World Chicago -- a show that used to be the nation's second biggest not once but twice for stretches. It's really useful if you don't go to that kind of show anymore to sort of see what one's like.

* this is the kind of thing that only interests me, but September 19, 20 and 26 all have more than ten events on each date. Wow.

* here's Dustin Harbin's poster for the inaugural Cartoons Crossroads Columbus in early October. I am that show's festival director.

* here's some photos from Derf Backderf of a museum-sponsored 'zine fair that took place in Cleveland last weekend.

* finally, it's great to hear about an event featuring Bob L. Crabb. I had to scan the postcard in because I couldn't find a match on-line, so I want to use it more than once!
