MoCCA Fest 2013 is Almost Here!

MoCCA Fest 2013

Do you love comics and cartoons? Do you live near or can you get to New York City? MoCCA Arts Festival is on for the first weekend in April (6th - 7th). There you will find the titans of comics and cartoons collected under one roof, and in a more intimate setting than your typical comic con.

The Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art (MoCCA) almost closed its doors for good and was saved from oblivion by Society of Illustrators. They are running the festival this year for the first time. Come out and thank them by showing some love for your favorite American art form.

Check out the full lineup and more info on their website:
