Sunday was a bit mellower than Saturday at the Festival... at least until the now-infamous fire alarm evacuation! Our first signer of the day was Leah Hayes, seen here, seated, with the just-arrived Ted Stearn and Dash Shaw:
That's what you would have seen if you were among the first attendees to visit our table at this year's MoCCA Art Festival. Check out our "Day 0" recap here, and read on for the full rundown on Day 1 (Saturday, June 7, 2008).
We got to the Puck Building (traditional site for the Festival) early (so very early) on Saturday morning to meet Alex and Mary from Rocketship. This year we arranged to have our books shipped to their store, and they made two trips across the river from Brooklyn to deliver everything to us at the Festival. We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to Alex and Mary, who were solid-gold superstars, going above and beyond the call of duty and providing us with invaluable assistance the entire weekend (not to mention loaning us a spare spinner rack). If you're in the area, get your butt over there ASAP and have yourself a spending spree -- you'll be giving your comics budget to two of the nicest folks in the business. (Plus, their store is fantastic.)
The Pain artist Tim Kreider and Escape from "Special" author Miss Lasko-Gross are amongst those signing at Jim Hanley's Universe on Friday night in Manhattan. Here's the skinny:
The Fog of War (November 2, New York, NY) 8:00-10:00pm, Alex Robinson, Tim Kreider, Mike Dawson, and The House of Twelve signing at Jim Hanley's Universe in New York City. Alex Robinson will be showing off and signing his Lower Regions. Mike Dawson, Chris Radtke, Cheese Hasselberger, Miss Lasko-Gross, Kevin Colden, and K. Thor Jenson will be out to support the troops as the House of Twelve Goes to War, and Tim Kreider will sign collections of his "The Pain" comics. 4 West 33rd St. NY, NY
