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


By Tom Spurgeon

* the Locust Moon Festival is the big one right now, with many of those exhibitors and many others anticipating CAB while others look forward to that classic, lovely event in Lucca. We're definitely in the early evening of the convention calendar year, and it's so freaking exhausting now I can't blame anyone who's tired even just hearing about all the events.

* CAKE is accepting exhibitor applications now through December 15. I hope to attend the 2015 edition of that show, which has been announced for early June. Alt-comics could use a strong Chicago show and a strong early-June show. I'll be interested to see what the show looks like as it expands; I know some folks find it to be perfect right now.

* exhibitor applications are available for RIPExpo 2015, to be held the last weekend in March.

* love some of the comics made in the course of this event report.

* as this post rolls out, people are starting to get back exhibitor yay/nays on Emerald City, which is in late March this year.

* Short Run has a t-shirt. I would like that t-shirt.

* finally, here's a nice regional-media preview of this year's aforementioned Locust Moon Festival.
