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


By Tom Spurgeon

* the Wonder Woman Symposium begins today. Here's the ambitious-looking schedule, ambition being a good thing here.

* bunch of shows left on the calendar: CXC, Short Run, CAB, NYCC, APE, Paris. Update: Ryan Sands appeared in my room in a puff of smoke, shouted out "CALA!" and disappeared.

* finally, I looked up NYCC in the news to see if there was an article, and this was the only one I could find that was sort of about comics. I want to spend some time figuring out that show at some point. I would have spent some time on this before now but I'm deathly afraid starting down the road of inquiry will lead me to attending again. I have never had a worse experience at a show than any of the three times I attended NYCC, and I was almost beat up at San Diego 1999. I don't think that's on purpose, they all seem like nice people, but man. On the other hand, clearly tons of people get use out of this show and not just in a restricted band of mainstream comics expression.
