50 Comics Positives For 2014: MoCCA Announced Move Out Of Armory

The long-running MoCCA Festival celebrated a second year of operation by the Society Of Illustrators. The SOI first stabilized the Spring NYC show and has started to pursue a yearly strategy of a small but powerful guest list and showing off the host city. Its big announcement for 2015 was thus worth a big-time notice: they'll be moving from the 69th Regiment Armory and into Center 548, near a more actively arts-oriented New York neighborhood and a space that will remind many of the old and very popular Puck Building. It's not the only change they've made, but it should be the most symbolic if they can find that right way to mix a show with high-end, served-by-Manhattan aspirations with modest comics pocketbooks. A giant inflatable Charlie Brown shut down the Armory years; he was very popular in photos of the show.
