    I haven’t been able to attend a MoCCA Fest for the past three years because of schedule conflicts, and I miss them. Maybe next year…

    As far as celebrity sightings go, though, I’ve seen and/or met Jerry Robinson, Neal Adams, Frank Miller, John Kovaleski, Craig Yoe, and Mike Kaluta at past Fests. They may not be on the Downey or Goldberg level, but to me they’re even better.
