~CAB: BC&GF . . up from the flames
so, the BC&GF / BROOKLYN COMICS & GRAPHICS FESTIVAL . . seems to have had a huge flame-out.
not to fear, GABE FOWLER of DESERT ISLAND, apparently came to the rescue, and re-mounted the show . .
solo as: CAB / COMIC ARTS BROOKLYN.
they had their first run this past NOV 9, 2013 . . and though their PR machine doesn’t seem to be quite up and running, they have a great blog going. and though, just a personal opinion . . the on-site pix aren’t totally up to snuff, the wild creativity is !!
ALL THERE !!
I will definitely make a point of catching it next year, and so should YOU !!
regarding the BC&GF flame-out, I can only imagine.
comic book artists and the people who publish & sell the work . . are NOT the easiest going people in the world, contrary to what you might think.
and let’s leave it at that.
if you want a good history of the BC&GF fest & the absolutely definitive take on the ‘break-down’, check out: ‘BC&GF ENDS’ by TIM HOLDER, THE COMICS JOURNAL
and a sense of the past: BROOKLYN COMICS & GRAPHICS FESTIVAL
anyways, I always wondered why ‘GRAPHICS’ was included . . in the first fest’s name.
it seemed a little defensive. re: the fine ‘art’ status of comic book artists.
there never were . . any ‘pure’ graphics exhibited anyways. and that was an ‘association’ that missed the boat, completely. and with REASON.
so . . ALL GOOD !!
