MoCCA Fest 2019: Joe Ciardiello's A Fistful of Drawings

I met illustrator Joe Ciardiello at the MoCCA Arts Festival this month—twice. Still, I did not manage to swing by his book signings for A Fistful of Drawings, his 2019 homage to the Spaghetti Western. No matter; the artist had the foresight to leave a signed copy adorned with an original cowboy sketch at the Fantagraphics table. I was only too happy to claim it.

Note:  Today marks Joe Ciardiello's first appearance here on Attempted Bloggery. With any luck there will be many more.

As you already may have noted, MoCCA Fest 2019 was a great opportunity to acquire signed books, many of them bearing original sketches. I have been showcasing my library acquisitions here (with interruptions) for about a week now and in about another week (also with interruptions) I should be done. For now.
