As we mentioned yesterday, the dear departed BCGF indie comics festival that ended earlier this year has been replaced by the Comic Arts Brooklyn fest, which will be run by Gabe Fowler of Desert Island. And here’s the official word. We’re there.

    Letting a hundred flowers blossom and a hundred schools of thought contend is the policy for promoting the progress of the arts and the sciences and a flourishing socialist culture in our land. Different forms and styles in art should develop freely and different schools in science should contend freely. We think that it is harmful to the growth of art and science if administrative measures are used to impose one particular style of art or school of thought and to ban another. Questions of right and wrong in the arts and sciences should be settled through free discussion in artistic and scientific circles and through practical work in these fields. They should not be settled in summary fashion.
