More Mocca Stuf
Once again, The Daily Cross Hatch has a far more coherent MoCCA preview than we could manage at this point, but here’s some more who’s where with what:
Dash Shaw with BodyWorld Cosplay (above)
Alex Robinson often paired with
The Finns! (in Finnish)
Leigh Dragoon (Above) The cat isn’t actually going to be there, we don’t think.
And more PR in the jump:
TP takes a wander into the world of indie cons this coming weekend, with Ken Knudtsen and Keith McCleary holding court at NYC’s own MoCCA Art Fest. MoCCA takes place June 7th-8th at the historic Puck Building, at the corner of Houston and Lafayette in Manhattan.
Knudtsen, writer and artist of TP classic “Crowpsy / Rufus & Cleveland,” the recently sold-out “I Hate Zombies” and the upcoming “The Devil in Miss Jones” will be at the Epic Proportions booth with artist Jerry Ma (Burn, Silent Assassin: 506). If fans were able to snatch any of these titles at Terminal Press’ con appearances this season, MoCCA will be a great chance to get a signature, a sketch and meet Ken in person.
Also on the top floor in the Skylight Ballroom will be “Killing Tree Quarterly” writer and artist Keith McCleary selling KTQ books and shirts at booth S57, along with a table of other great NYC artists. Even though “Killing Tree Quarterly” is the newest book in the TP library, McCleary has already taken on writing duties for “Deep Throat,” part of the “Hard/Core” line of comics that previewed with “Debbie Does Dallas” in January and will take off in full at July’s San Diego Con.
With a one-day admission fee of $10, a weekend pass for $15 and special guests like Bill Plympton, Chip Kidd and Art Speigelman, MoCCA is the best deal a comics enthusiast could want this weekend – so come on out and get your TP on.
And JAM IN THE BAND by Robin Enrico
My first graphic novel Jam in the Band will be debuting this weekend at said show. It’s the first in a series of graphic novels I am doing following the rise to fame and struggles of an all girl band divided between their desires for artistic success and romantic fulfillment. The book is 112 pages perfect bound with black and white insides and full color cover. I have enclosed the cover image and photos of the actual book (it still boggles my mind that its actually a physical object now).
