It looks like MoCCA is finding its stride again.  Soon after receiving  that 
notice about the MAD Magazine one-day exhibit, I got this one [SCROLL DOWN  
BELOW MY SIG] about a free-to-everyone evening of vintage cartoons from the  
1920s and 1930s.  This screening begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday 30 October,  and is 
hosted by cartoonist Kim Deitch.  (Deitch will also be giving a talk  on his 
work at MoCCA on Thursday 13 November.)
I'll probably be going to the 30 October vintage cartoon screening, as well  
as to the 29 October MAD Magazine exhibit.  Again, anyone else interested  in 
this one?

Dear MoCCA Member,  

Please join us for two great MoCCA Thursday  events with Kim Deitch! If you 
haven't seen MoCCA recently now is a wonderful  time to visit and catch up on 
all of the changes.

Cartoon Movie Night with Kim Deitch: October  30, 7 pm
Kim Deitch will host a Cartoon Movie Night  featuring rarely seen animated 
cartoons from the 1920s and 1930s hand-picked  for the occasion from Deitch’s 
own personal collection. This period of  animation inspired Deitch’s signature 
character Waldo the Cat and is the  subject of his acclaimed graphic novel The 
Boulevard of Broken Dreams,  which is featured in the exhibit. As a special 
Halloween treat, MoCCA will  also display for one night only selected specimens 
from Deitch and spouse Pam  Butler’s extensive collection of antique toy cats. 
The blurring of fact,  fiction and autobiography in Deitch’s work is a major 
focus of Kim Deitch: A  Retrospective, and this display will present a rare 
opportunity to see the  historical artifacts that motivate the fictional 
narrative in Deitch’s graphic  novel Alias the Cat.

Kim Deitch Q & A with curator Bill  Kartalopoulos: November 13, 7 pm
A Q & A session with Deitch and exhibit  curator Bill Kartalopoulos. In a 
unique and wide-ranging conversation, the two  will discuss Deitch’s work and 
career to date. Deitch will present examples of  recent work and will also 
preview images from his current works in  progress.

MoCCA Thursdays
Free and open to the public, MoCCA Thursdays are  a regularly scheduled 
series of lectures, conversations, and presentations  with comic and cartoon art
