So, quickly then: MoCCA Fest 2017 (brought to you by the Society of Illustrators) has announced its programming slate; two rooms (at the Ink48 Hotel) each running three sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons (unfortunately, head to head; in past years, the rooms have staggered their start times), six per day, twelve total.
Best looking one from here: Gene Yang (Ambassador, Genius, etc) talking about diversity in comics with Damian Duffy, Hazel Newlevant, and Whit Taylor (Saturday, Garamond room, 12:30pm). Artist spotlight panels include Drew Friedman (Saturday, Helvetica room, 12:30pm), Cliff Chiang (Saturday, Helvetica room, 3:30pm), David Lloyd (Sunday, Garamond room, 12:30pm), and Becky Cloonan (Sunday, Helvetica room, 3:30pm). Politics gets a workout in Covering Trump (Saturday, Helvetica room, 2:00pm) and RESIST! (Sunday, Helvetica room, 2:00pm). Honestly, the other five panels look like they’ll be just as good.
MoCCA Fest runs Saturday and Sunday, 1-2 April, from 11:00am to 6:00pm at the Metropolitan West event space, West 46th between 11th & 12th. Admission is five stinkin’ bucks.
