Harveys Move to Baltimore Comicon

Tom Spurgeon has a story on the move of the Harvey awards from MoCHA to Baltimore’s Comicon. Spurgeon speculates that this may negatively impact the more indy-friendly SPXPo held in Bethesda, Maryland which hosts the Ignatz awards. I don’t know enough about the history of the SPXPo to tell whether it’s “stagnating” or not but one option would be to move SPXPo to Northern Virginia. That wouldn’t change a thing about the geographic location of SPXPo, but it might help end the constant (and to my mind, irrelevant) attempts to link it to Baltimore’s superhero-style convention.
