Stumptown Comics Fest this weekend

2007 stumptown comic fest

Originally uploaded by dieselboi.

The Stumptown Comics Fest is back. Yeah, you thought you missed it didn’t you. They changed the dates on us. I’m glad I know a comic book store owner who can remind me of these things. This year’s Fest is at the Doubletree hotel at Lloyd Center and is both Saturday and Sunday.

The Fest was born out of the need for Portland to have their own comic convention similar to other cities. Yet the organizers wanted to focus on the creators instead of the dealers. You will be able to buy most any comic there, but you will also have the chance to attend panel discussions and meet some comic creator heroes. I know someone in my household will be excited to see and maybe chat with Mike Allred, creator of “Madman” and “The Atomics” Oh, and there are so many others to see.

So, head on out for a couple of days of comic goodness that only Portland can offer. Pick up something local and discover that Portland is a thriving comic scene.

Stumptown Comics Fest
Sept. 29-30, 10am-6pm daily, $5

    Don’t forget to come to the afterparty Saturday night at Tonic Lounge. It’s Tractor Operator’s CD release party and Fox Hollow and The Morals will be playing as well. 6 bucks, 9:15.
