  1. Jasmin St. Claire… another comics geek. (Not only did she appear as herself in a pretty decent (so to speak) Carnal Comics issue, (I espcecially liked her Publishers Clearinghouse fantasy) but she was the model of the “Cocktails in the Cantina” CD of Star Wars lounge music.)

    Pretty good cast of characters for a show. Not a lot of comics per se, but sure to draw a crowd. I suspect they’ll have a shuttle bus from Puck to Penn like last year?

  2. Sorry, there’s no comics fan shuttle bus sponsor this year, but getting around town to/from all the different comics-related stuff going on in NYC this weekend should still be pretty easy.

    The N (on weekends) and R subway lines run right down Broadway from 34-Herald Square to Prince Street (and vice versa) — putting you within a block or so from Big Apple at Penn Plaza and MoCCAFest at the Puck on either end… with a hop off in between at 23rd Street for anyone checking out the Saturday afternoon auction at Illustration House (110 West 25th).

    For those going to/from the Kinokuniya Bookstore at Bryant Park that Saturday, the B/D/F/V trains should get you from 42St-5Av to B’way-Lafayette in a hurry.
