I’ll have a longer report (HA) later, but to hold you over here is Robyn Chapman’s MoCCA Festival wrap-up at The Tiny Report, which hits all the main points, including the big one, which was “Whoa! Charlie Brown!”
PW Comics World also has a photo gallery up by Jody Culkin and Calvin Reid, including the above shot of Guests of Honor Howard Cruse and ALison Bechdel.
Short version: MoCCA is back, baby! Spurred by the $5 entrance attendance on Saturday equalled all of last year’s show, there was great energy all the way through Sunday, and way too many good comics to even think of buying them ALL. Sales were good but not mind boggling (i son’t think there was a big debut at the show that drove excitement the way some years have had.)
But yeah, good times, and after some tough years, MoCCA Festival seems to have reestesblished itself as a prime stop on the CAF circuit.
