MOCCA 2009 Report

Posted on 08 June 07:06 (over 11 years ago)

Intrepid Copacetic customer turned comics reporter, Yakov Hadash has turned in a report on the goings on, yes, but mostly on those comics on offer that were found to be the most Copacetic of MOCCA 2009, which was held the weekend of June 6 & 7, 2009.  We're going to take Yakov's advice and try to get these in at Copacetic, so don't hesitate to ask us about any of them to learn if we have been successful.

Here's the report:
