MoCCA Mega-Blast

I'll be attending the MoCCA arts Festival this coming weekend:

Here is some information about my schedule, the spectacular panel I will be a part of and the rawkus after-party:

SATURDAY, April 10th
2:00 PM
The Art of the Superhero: When Singular Vision Meets Popular Mythology
Once upon a time, comics defenders made much fuss over how "comics are not just superheroes." We turn the notion on its head, exploring how superheroes can be not only as smart, and as much of a personal artistic expression as the more "literary" autobio and indie comix, but when done right these new myths can be simply sublime. Join true superheroes of the art Frank Miller (Dark Knight Returns, Sin City), Jaime Hernandez (Love & Rockets), Paul Pope (Batman Year 100, Heavy Liquid), Kyle Baker (Plastic Man, Nat Turner) & Dean Haspiel (Billy Dogma, ACT-I-VATE) as they explore what they find inspiring about the genre and about each others work. Moderated by Jeff Newelt (HEEB, Smith, Royal Flush)
