Come see cartoonists Christa Cassano, Dean Haspiel, and Josh Neufeld at MoCCA Arts Festival this April 1st & 2nd (Sat & Sun), 2017 from 11am – 6pm, located at Metropolitan West on West 46th street in Manhattan. They will be tabling at A103B and debuting two exciting comix exploring the exquisite corpse theme done in the tradition of Zap Comix and The Narrative Corpse. Who needs to take off their shirt or be awarded a festival prize when these three artists have stripped their sensibilities down to their most raw and subconscious core, baring their souls and making primal connections between the panels!?!

BECAUSE OF YOU by Dean Haspiel & Josh Neufeld
Created over a three-year period beginning in the summer of 2001, BECAUSE OF YOU is an unscripted, impromptu, dynamic dialogue between Dean Haspiel and Josh Neufeld, a unique two-man exquisite corpse that plumbs unparalleled depths of agony and personal humiliation. The protagonist, “Lionel,” wakes up one morning to an unpleasant surprise. From that point on he faces domestic crises, public transportation, the New York City streets, and his own hyperactive imagination — all in the course of one infamous ill-fated day.

CADAVRE EXQUIS by Christa Cassano
Eisner nominee and Yaddo fellow, Christa Cassano collaborates with seven other creators collecting various exquisite corpses featuring alien love trysts, existential angst, sex and death.
