moca presents extreme makeover: the comics edition, october 10



This one's for my fellow comic book fans in New York... Next week, the Museum of Chinese in America presents Extreme Makeover: The Comics Edition, a panel discussion with prominent comic book creators moderated by Jeff Yang. It's happening Wednesday, October 10 at MOCA. Here's some more information about the event:
Extreme Makeover: The Comics Edition
Wed, Oct 10 from 7pm – 10pm

On October 10, join Jeff Yang, editor of the new graphic novel collection SHATTERED and curator of Marvels & Monsters and Alt.Comics, as he and a celebrity panel of comic book authors and artists discuss how stereotypes ruin stories and turn characters into cliches. The fun really begins when we invite leading local graphic novelists to share their own "Comic Book Extreme Makeovers”. Panelists include Keith Chow, Larry Hama, Jerry Ma, and Greg Pak.

Admission: $5 non-members/$3 students and seniors/ free for MOCA members.

RSVP required to programs@mocanyc.org
