§ Something called The Comics Summit – An event for creators, by creators, about the joys and pitfalls of making independent comics will be held July 7-8 in Birmingham, UK.

§ This Twitter thread has a lot to say about Universal Fan Con blowback including the fact that every outlet covered the disaster – to be fair, it was very newsworthy – but not the success of Wicomicon. Negativity sells, alas. I also wondered how many POC are major con personnel? The first person who springs to mind is Aman Gupta who ran Fan Expo in Toronto. Also Kandrix Foong , founder of Calgary Expo. And ReedPOP recently hired Ku-you Liang. I’m sure more are involved in Anime cons and smaller events like BlerdCon, MeccaCon and ECBACC.
