Ron Perazza shares Zuda Comics’ plans for the MoCCA Art Festival this weekend.

Anyway, we’ll be there at table 201 along with NIGHT OWLS creators Bobby & Peter Timony, the HIGH MOON team of David Gallaher & Steve Ellis. I think Kevin Colden, creator of I RULE THE NIGHT will be there as well as the one and only Dean Haspiel, creator of STREET CODE, but I don’t have final confirmation for those guys.

Actually there are some other ZUDA guys there but we can’t announce those projects since they haven’t started…yet. Ha!

We’ve got free Zuda Samplers to give away (which you can download here) in addition to the much coveted, adhesive Zuda Competition Calendar (which is sure to be Geocached for future generations). We’ll also be giving away a few copies of BAYOU VOL. 1 (which you can, of course, read online) so stop by early, stop by often!

Drawn + Quarterly at MoCCA ArtFest:

Beware and behold! MoCCA ArtFest is no longer at the Puck Building, the festival is now at the 68th Armory on Lexington Ave between 25th and 26th Streets.  We will have all of our spring 2009 books including George Sprott, The Collected Doug Wright, Melvin Monster, Moomin Volume 4, Shortcomings PB, and the new edition of 32 Stories.  On staff from D+Q, will be the comedic dream team of Creative Director Tom Devlin, Publicity Coordinator Jessica Campbell and special US envoy Alison Naturale. Stop by the booth or one of their bits and one of our D+Q specials. And one of our fashionable D+Q totes!

Adrian Tomine and Seth will be traveling together and each will be presenting their own slide show.  All I can say is that Adrian’s is based on his new edition of 32 Stories and Seth’s is based on his stories he has written for the show, some are on comics, some are not.  Both are awesome and should not be missed.  Questions will be answered, books will be signed.
