The 2014 MoCCA Arts Festival (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) is  gearing up again this year, happening April 5th and 6th at the 69th Regiment Armony. Tickets are only $5  a day – you can’t afford NOT to go.

This year’s visual is from MoCCA Guest of Honor, the amazing Fiona Staples. (If you aren’t seeing her work in Saga, you’re missing out!)  Look at this beautiful work:
