I didn’t stay very long (I was newly off a train and hadn’t eaten) but it was an amazing event. The turn out was incredible. I think if there’s any question that women are making comics and/or fans of them, something like this puts them to rest. It was delightful to see so many women there.
I met a few people, including the ever-lovely Raina Telgemeier and Jenn Jordan, the co-writer of the web comic Darwin Carmichael is Going to Hell. There are a couple more people whose names escape me right now (no disrespect to them meant — I am tired and suddenly, it became late).
It was very cool to see this. I’m glad it happened and it definitely makes me excited to see what MoCCA will have tomorrow. This just feels like a really exciting time for comics.
