The annual  two-day Festival continues to attract thousands of comic art lovers and  creators from around the globe to celebrate one of the world?s most  popular art forms in the heart of New York City.

Since 2002 MoCCA Fest has offered a unique venue to  experience comics,  minicomics, web-comics, graphic novels, animation,  posters, prints, original artwork, and more. Each year, the Festival  invites dozens of established and emerging creators, scholars, and  other experts to participate in two days of lectures and discussion  panels on a variety of comics and cartoon topics. Past exhibitors have  included Abrams ComicArts, ACT-I-VATE, Ad House, Candle Light Press,  Center for Cartoon Studies, Comics Bakery, Drawn & Quarterly, Evil  Twin Comics, Fantagraphics, First Second Books, Joe Kubert School, NBM  Press, New York University, the Norwegian Consulate, Paperkutz, Parsons  School of Design, Pantheon, School for Visual Arts, TopatoCo, Top Shelf,  Tug Boat Press, and many, many more.
