Queer Cartoonist ATTACK!!! (Part 2)

Well, it's over. Sadly. It was an incredible weekend. It started out ... challenging. More than a few hours on the New Jersey Turn Pike. EZPass drama. (Not really.) Getting to the first panel late. Parking drama. (Manhattan is not tourist friendly.) A flop house!!!! Peeling paint, dank dwellings and bed bugs. Oh, my! (Hotel Pennsylvania = European hostel.) Saved by lesbians. Brooklyn is bigger than D.C. Hanging with a comix legend. Train rides. A mouse. Cocktails at 10am. Vietnamese and Lebanese food. Sigh. A great time was had by all. Members of the Juicy Mother crew were reunited for Attack of the Queer Cartoonist. Check out my previous blog entry. There were nice turn outs for each event. For more info about our weekend, check out Howard's blog. He's got some things to say, too. Jennifer Camper (Juicy Mother), Ivan Velez (Tales From The Closet), Joan Hilty (Bitter Girl), and Howard Cruse (Stuck Rubber Baby, Wendell) really turned out a great event, discussing gay comix and their role in it.
