It’s almost time for MOCCA Fest.
First up is a pre-MOCCA event tomorrow:
Thursday, April 8, 7 PM
A FREE pre-MoCCA “Jewish Comix Panel” Join comics editor/promoter Jeff Newelt AKA JahFurry (Pekar Project, Heeb, SMITH, Royal Flush) and comics creators Miss Lasko-Gross (A Mess of Everything), Chari Pere (ChariPere.com), Eli Valley (EV Comics, The Jewish Daily Forward), and JT Waldman (Megillat Esther) as they discuss topics like “Why on Passover can you not draw comics on paper, only on matzoh?” and “Comics and kvetching, a match made on Krypton” and “Why has there not yet been a graphic novelization of Yentyl?”

The Big Lipowsky will be there and will report back afterward. And then on Sunday I’m heading to MOCCA FEST and I’m going to try my hardest to get to this panel Sunday morning:
