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!

ADRIAN TOMINE & SETH ON TOUR:
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.
