There aren’t nearly enough small press cons, and yet somehow there seems to be a lot of overlap in their timing. I seem to remember at least one occasion when CAB (Comic Arts Brooklyn) was the same weekend as SPX (Small Press Expo). This year, MoCCA and NOCAZ (New Orleans Comics and Zine Fest) will be taking place the same weekend, unfortunately. I can’t say enough good things about this scrappy and funky little show, which has a little bit of everything. In previous years, that’s included a free vegan lunch, live brass band, puppet show, and break dancing.
If you’ve ever needed an excuse to visit New Orleans, this is it.
