L-R, Pascal Girard, Brecht Evens and Joe Ollmann. D&Q brings the nicest cartoonists to America. Girard and Ollmann are from just north of the border. Young Evens, 25, was the life of the party, jumping up and down, picking people up, kissing men and women and generally living it up. European cartoonists kind of sighed, as they are used to his lovable antics, but it was all new to NYC.

OH NO! Our cartooning friends from away learn a harsh lesson — no open containers! $25 tickets were meted out to all those who were holding a beer.

Next day dawned clear and the ornamental crabapple had just begun to bloom.

Just before the panel I moderated on serial non-fiction, this panel on teaching comics with Karen Green, Tom Hart, Bill K., and Jessica Abel wrapped up — wow, I wish I had seen the whole thing. Green showed the famous panel from Popeye of multiple heads and fists and wondered why it was so easy to understand despite the sophistication of the imagery.

My panel — Nick Abadsis, Nick Bertozzi, Sarah Glidden, and Dean Haspiel went well, I thought.

Alex Cox was rocking his kilt. Seth Kushner wishes he had.

Jane Irwin returned after several years away. She said she needed time away to work out the bumps in her story.

Marianne R. Petit at the ICP booth — they are doing some amazing cutting edge things there.

More of those things!

Authentic Scotsman Simon Frazier was also rocking the kilt. I hear several pictures were taken of the two kilt-wearers were taken; alas, I did not get one. I did, however, remind them that there is a genre of romance/fantasy called the “kiltlifter.”

Nick Bertozzi and daughter Sabina. After several years lying low, Bertozzi promises to be more on the scene. He’s currently working on a comic about Ernest Shackleton that has been called one of the most accurate portrayals of that great adventurer yet.

At a show that included lots of very young cartoonists, crammed three to a table, it was hard to stand out, but these fellows, from Carleton College, had discovered a way — a banner!

IMG 3806 2 MoCCA 2011: The Photo parade
As you can see in this side view — the banner requires very erect posture.

Beat intern/illustrator Maggie Siegel-Berele and her table mates.

These very nice folks had incredible stone lithographs of art by Charles Burns, Kim Dietch and others. As soon as we find their card we’ll plug their name.

This is ALL that D&Q had left of their stock at the end of the show. Talk about good planning.
