Is the term DMV for the Maryland, DC, Virginia area over yet? I always thought it should be “the DCMV” but obviously I am not plugged into the crowd for creation and popularization of alternative language-ology.
Anyhow I noticed that Tom Spurgeon has not updated his great list of comics scenes in a couple of years (or at least I could only find one as recent as 2012). For conventions he’s listed Small Press Expo but needs to add Intervention, a new convention started by Onezumi and Harknell a few years ago. I think the DC Conspiracy group is still going relatively strong but the Washington Webtoonists group is dead, dead, dead.
On the people front I’m pasting Tom’s list so I can update it this summer (maybe I can send Tom an update before SPX this fall).
