This past weekend, I attended the premiere event in the east for indie comics. In case you haven’t made it to MoCCA Fest, it is a fundraiser for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art. The festival is also a great opportunity to truly hobnob with the indie creators of today.
Like last year, I attended as a volunteer, not only to get the perks of volunteerism, but to hang out with a amazing group of geeks. I was assigned to the A/V team, which meant I was working all of the panels. Unlike last year, I didn’t get to watch any panels this time around. I did get plenty of time to wander the floor and meet some new people as well as catch up with some old friends.

No matter what, MoCCA Fest is still the premiere place to find new indie comics on the east coast and hob nob with all of these awesome creators. With each table, I had the chance to meet the brains behind great comics, and every purchase I made went straight to the creator. Especially in this economic climate, that makes me feel great. I highly recommend that you add this to your con list next year.
