Below are some observations, news stories and links to same generated by Comic-Con 2019. The pictures are from last year's show. ***** UP THROUGH TUESDAY, JULY 23 UP THROUGH MONDAY, JULY 22 UP THROUGH SUNDAY, JULY 21 UP THROUGH SATURDAY, JULY 20 The Eisners are a Comic-Con awards program, so I don't always agree with some of the In-Memory choices that don't go as deep on the artistic contribution as other factors. Ted Stearn wasn't as significant artists as some, or as part of SDCC, but he was an artist I liked very much and wanted to mention him here. UP THROUGH FRIDAY, JULY 19 UP THROUGH THURSDAY, JULY 18 UP THROUGH WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 * there's a good buzz for this year's San Diego show, at least from where I sit, despite or maybe because the changing shape of the various comics industries. * Zdarsky and Loo go high-concept -- or the "please make a TV show" route if you're cynical -- with Afterlift. I like Zdarsky writing humor a lot, so i'll look at this for sure. At some point I'm going to sit down and trying to figure out industry veteran Chip Mosher as an editorial director, but this is not that day. That's a much higher profile creative team than most of what's been done so far with those comics. * Jonathan Hickman and collaborators working on the X-Men comics is a big deal, just in terms of a potential point-and-buy prestige title with a still-potent amount of affection from different corners of its longtime readership. Its mega-story status is the story, at least this week. And then let's see where everything stands a few months in. * okay, I should do better at this once I stop flying in airplanes. I'm also going to do a couple of comics publishing news stories as stand-alones that deserve then. See you tomorrow. UP THROUGH WEDNESDAY, JULY 17 * one of the other giant shows on the world calendar, the one in Angouleme, announced a major exhibit/retropective featuring Yoshiharu Tsuge. That would be super-fun to see. * it may be a rare comics announcement for the show, but it's legit comics news; Warren Ellis an Bryan Hitch team up on a Batman maxi-series. I think the recent mainstream work from both men has been a lot of fun. ***** ***** *****

By Tom Spurgeon * Please consider giving to the Sam Gafford Memorial Fund, and particularly so if he was an independent creator and publisher from your general area. * a group from Center For Cartoon Studies in Maine is asking on behalf of their latest, admirable-sounding projects. * finally, Dustin Harbin is about $16,500 from making his current asked-for amount.
