March 8th, 2008 — Attendees of this year’s New York Comic Con (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.  Premiering at this year’s 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, Crazee Comics Media Group Founder & 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 be the most entertaining yet! It continues to get bigger and bigger every year, as we continue to attract new sponsors.”
