Nikki Cook – shares photos from the PARADE WITH FIREWORKS party AND the INFINITE CANVAS opening at MoCCA> THe latter was a rip-roaring success, with many cool people including the Zuda Crew and other local webcomics luminaries. Scott McCloud was on hand and dropped by for a bit at the beginning and end — the middle was interrupted by a wild rush to rescue his beloved Cintiq from savage cannibals or something — we didn’t quite get the whole story.

UPDATE: The webcomics world reacts to the show, via Gary Tyrell at Fleen:

Last night, the Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art in New York City opened its latest exhibit, and for the first time webcomics made it into the world of culture and connoisseurs. I don’t get to too many museum exhibition openings, but I do know one thing — when the room is packed wall-to-wall and the air conditioning is insufficient to cool the air from all the people, it’s not because of the snacks or the booze. It’s because people want to see the pretty stuff on the walls. By that criterion alone, the opening of Infinite Canvas: The Art of Webcomics would have to be judged an enormous success.


  1. So cute! It was my first visit to MoCCA and I was really impressed. This weekend I definitely have some comics I’m gonna be exploring on line (aka, procrastinating, but that’s another story).

  2. eh, I’m being elitest, but I still don’t know how I feel about webcomics being considered ‘art’. Using general terms, potentially moreso than cartoons, but definitely less than comic books.
