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


By Tom Spurgeon

* it's pretty much SPX in my circles from about mid-August through the mid-September show itself. Should be a peak year for the show embroiled in the challenge to community that is the Pickrodt defamation suit.

* Portland is a great comics city. It's where Image is! And Dark Horse! John Callahan lived there! Rose City has become a successful show; the photos always show a lot of happy people and that guest list a bunch of great comics-makers. I'd love to go, but Fall is tough and trips out west even tougher these days. Portland all by itself can handle filling those seats, though.

* the Thought Bubble show is in a couple of weekends. That show has a fine reputation. Warren Ellis as headliner intrigues. Comics has moved in a direction where doing a show doesn't seem like it would be a futile act, and it's always interesting to have his perspective on the way the tribes are organized.

* finally, we've added Georgia Webber to CXC's line-up.
