Todd's Comic-Con appearance coincides with his February 24th attendance at an exclusive preview reception hosted by New York Comic-Con at the Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art (MoCCA) in conjunction with Reed Exhibitions. A multimedia retrospective exhibit showcasing Todd's art and career will include original artwork and artifacts including original comic art pages, animation cels, character designs and layouts, as well as toy designs and prototypes from the McFarlane Companies archives. The official opening of the exhibit will be held the following night, Saturday, February 25 and is scheduled to be open to the public through May 1, 2006.

For those unable to attend the MoCCA show, we've created a mini-site featuring a selection of artwork from the exhibit, including a downloadable audio of Todd's thoughts and reminiscences on each piece.

This section will continually evolve during the course of the MoCCA exhibit. Check back often for new images and new audio files from Todd to guide you through "Todd McFarlane: A Retrospective."
