MoCCA Art Festival 2009!

Partway through this Memorial Day Weekend...  And I am taking the time to see what is coming up in the way of Comic Cons & Shows in the near future.

One that I've heard is a "good one" for creators that are in independent comics, small press, or self-published comics is the upcoming MoCCA Art Festival that is being held two weekends from this one.

The Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art, (MoCCA), announced a short time ago that the MoCCA Festival 2009 will be held June 6th & 7th at the 69th Regiment Armory at Lexington Avenue and 25th Street in New York City.

Besides hearing good reports from Facebook Friends, I see that the Village Voice calls the MoCCA Festival ""the best small-press nexus (anywhere!)". Plus MoCCA itself says that this year's Festival is  "Now BIGGER than ever!".

So if you are in the area during during that time, prepare for an incredible weekend of comic and cartoon art exhibitors, panels, lectures, sketches, autographs, and more!

So Where Is It?
69th Regiment Armory
68 Lexington Avenue, between 25th and 26th Streets

When Is It?
June 6th and 7th, 11am-6pm

So What's the Cost?
$10 per day
$15 per weekend
MoCCA Members: $10 per weekend.

Who's Going To Be On Panels?
Scheduled to appear are John Green, Tom Hart, Charles Hatfield on Jack Kirby, Al Jaffee, Arnold Roth, Tom Kaczynski, David Mazzuchelli, Dave Roman, Frank Santoro in Conversation with Gary Panter, Seth, Raina Telgemeier, Adrian Tomine, Marion Vitus, and more.  Please Note: Guests and scheduling are subject to change!

Thousands come every summer to meet and purchase works from some of the world's best cartoonists, animators, and graphic novelists. I am including just a few of those in the listings below:
