The CAG Party is coming!

Hey Kiddies, time to buff up yer party shoes, and break out bestest duds, as the CAG Indy after-Party is coming to NYC! That’s right, after the NY ComicCon To be held in NYC on April 18 – 20.

Well, not only will CAG be there in force (look for our booth), but so will I (ask for me), and then come on out to our party at Twins Pub (421 9th Ave, New York, NY 10001, 212.564.7288) and hang with us.

Here is the info as I just received it from President Keith Murphey:

March 5th, 2008 Attendees of this years New York ComicCon (NYCC) are invited to celebrate the Third Annual Indie After-Party on Saturday, April 19th from 7-11 PM at The Twins Pub in New York City. This years event will converge on the entire venue, with free food on the first floor, a cash bar, and DJ and dance entertainment on the second floor. And what would a party full of comic book creators be without comic books? Well, party-goers will get the chance to see (and buy) some of the best around.

Premiering at this years Indie After-Party is a very special event the first annual Comicbook Artists Guild (CAG) Awards Ceremony! At this first-of-its-kind event, the leadership of this nationwide organization will induct honorary members and present awards in comic book excellence. Categories to be recognized include Best Writer, Best Artist, CAG-MVP, Best New Talent, and Special Award for Excellence in Production.Catch da Craze Podcast will be filming the event and conducting interviews in the new CDC corner at the party.

When asked to comment on the party, organizer Samuel Vera said The Indie After-Party has grown into a must-attend event at the NYCC. I am honored to be one of the original sponsors and the only podcast show to document the event year after year. Fellow Organizer and CAG President, Keith Murphey states This party is for the up-and-comers and the well-established veterans. Everyone is welcome here and this party will promise to bethe most entertaining yet! It continues to get bigger and bigger every year, as we continue to attract new sponsors.

Founded in 2000, the Comicbook Artists Guild is an organization designed to bring talented comic book artists together - be they writers, colorists, inkers, pencilers or all of the above - to collaborate on a project of their choice. CAG is also a great place to meet with other comic lovers to learn new tricks or techniques, or teach a few of your own! CAG is for anyone who loves comics and has the passion to create in any aspect of the field.

The Twins Pub is located just 3 blocks away from the New York Comic Con, midway between the 34th Street subway station and the Javitz Center.
