Updated: MoCCA 2008: Your Guide to Next Week’s Events

Categories:  News

We know it’s tough to find things to do in a quiet city like New York, especially if you happen to visiting from out of town for a week during the MoCCA Art Festival, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Consider your week planned out below—sure pretty much everything on here is somehow related to the festival itself, but give us a break, this is a comics blog, after all.

Check out the full lineup, after the jump, including yet another appearance by yours truly on the city’s fourth best live comics talk show, Comic Book Club.
