October 13 - 16 / New York Comic Con

Hey, Allies!

We've had a fantastic first month, and now NYCC is a upon us. This week, we'll be putting on the brakes to our weekly meetings as we prepare for this weekend's big convention.

New York Comic Con
This Weekend, 10/13 - 10/16
Javits Center

Please continue reading for further information and other upcoming events!

While registration for volunteer hours has almost filled up, we still need a lot more people to help with breakdown on Sunday night. Please sign up if you're willing and able!

If you would like to sell minicomics at the convention, please drop them off in the NYCC box in the Senior Studio by Wednesday night. Do not forget to fill out the accompanying form! Drop an extra mini in the Reviews box while you're at it. If you will be taking your minicomics directly to the convention, you MUST still fill out a drop-off form in the Senior Studio before Wednesday night. If your minicomic is not listed on the printed out tally sheet, WE CANNOT SELL IT.

And for those looking toward the future: next week's meeting (October 21st) is going to be a materials demonstration in the form of a jam comics marathon! Get pumped to work in new ways and collaborate.

Coming events:

  • Michael Kupperman @ Desert Island (7 PM)



Other business:
  • The SVA Library now has access to a new Underground Comix Database. Check it out!
  • Do you want publicity for your minicomics? Enter the Mini Reviews Box. Bring your minicomics to our meetings or the Senior Studio to submit them for review on the Cartoon Allies blog. Each week, bloggers Eric and Hayley will randomly select a student's mini from the box and offer readers a preview of the comic and their thoughts. We hope to improve student promotion and give members a space to show their work to a greater audience.
  • If you would like to be listed on our Members page, email your name, year, website url, and 50x50px icon to with the subject line "Active Member [Name]". As we collect a nice group of links, we'll update our long out-of-date Active Members list.
  • This week marks the beginning of our new blog schedule. New articles will be posted every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. This week, be sure to check Hayley's new From the Frontline article, Eric's review of Laura Knetzger's Bug Boys, and a new manga review from Matt.
  • If you're interested in helping us distribute Cartoon Allies event posters, let us know by email or at the next meeting.
Stay strong, Allies!
