MoCCA Art Festival 2009, a fundraiser for the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA), takes place June 6th & 7th at the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City.

The MoCCA Festival, held each June since 2002, offers a unique venue to see and purchase comics, mini-comics, web comics, graphic novels, animation, posters, prints, original artwork, and much more. Thousands of people who love cartoons and comics — from hardcore collectors and enthusiasts to the merely curious — come to the Festival each summer to meet, talk to, and purchase works from some of today’s best cartoon and comics artists, writers, editors, and publishers.

Each year, the Festival also invites dozens of well-respected creators, scholars, and other experts to participate in a two-day slate of lecture/discussion panels on a wide range of comics and cartoon topics. Scheduled to appear are John Green, Tom Hart, Charles Hatfield on Jack Kirby, Al Jaffee, Arnold Roth, Tom Kaczynski, David Mazzuchelli, Dave Roman, Frank Santoro in Conversation with Gary Panter, Seth, Raina Telgemeier, Adrian Tomine, Marion Vitus, and more. Guests and scheduling are subject to change.

Of course we love the wonderful cephalopod themed poster for MoCCA Art Festival 2009 illustrated by Molly Crabapple and designed by Nicola Black.
