MoCCA 2009 - Hot in many ways

:: Posted by max @ 6/11/2009 02:42:00 PM
So MoCCA 2009 was last weekend, i just got back from NY and i'm still getting back into my routine.

I planed on doing a lot more reporting myself but in the end not so much. I did snag a video of one panel that was pretty good - Making Good Comics in a New Era - and made a short overview clip from the little bit of footage i took at the show - it was insanely big, hot, and packed with books and i kind of short circuited and forgot to keep shooting after the first hour of day two.

Also found this via Heidi, the audio for the Gary Panter and Raymond Sohn panel.

Hung out a lot with the Indy Spiner Rack guys at the show, i don't mince words when i say you could not meet a nicer couple of guys! I owe them for the suport and for putting me up for a few hours when i missed my Train! Man, what a day that was. Some epic exhaustion.

They Reported on the event this year, had a talk with MoCCA board member Fred Van Lente who does a great job answering some tough questions!

So my final word is I had a great time. The heat messed me up and made it hard to think strait sometimes. But it was great to see friendly faces and there were soooo MANNY comics to look at. Saw increadable abstract stuff by Andrei Molotiu and had a great encounter with Bob Fingerman, one of my favorite Comix creators from when I was a punk kid. Made a few new freinds and amused myself when I spaced out and unwittingly stole a book from Brian Wood - made up for it by swapping for it, hope he liked what he got.

I didn't want to have to carry too much back with me but managed to snag a nice selection for the collection. If i find the time i'll try to do a bit of a quick list with stars or something - have a few books now backed up to read soon.

Rover out.
