2011 Stumptown Comics Fest And Portland

I had the honor and privilege of sharing a booth at this past weekend's Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, OR, with the immortal Jason Leivian, proprietor of Floating World Comics, one of the best comic shops on the planet. The show itself was fantastic. We had a spacious booth to relax in and sell our wares from. I found some terrific comics including some Jademan back issues and several mind-blowing comics from an indie company called Raw Fun. I was introduced to several fine folks from Dark Horse Comics including publisher Mike Richardson. I spoke with Brandon Graham, Nate Simpson, Tom Neely, Rick Remender, and many others. I chatted at length with Matt Maxwell who writes Strangeways, about horror movies, Clive Barker ones in particular, and Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II specifically. I did a few sketches at the con in people's sketchbooks including one of Pinhead for Matt.

On the Thursday before Stumptown, Jason hosted an art opening and signing at the store for me. Floating World Comics is the comic store you think you can only imagine, but there it is, in downtown Portland. I bought many things. During the signing I was able to speak at length with a bunch of folks I only know through the internet mostly.

Other than hanging out with Jason for a quality amount of time, the best part of the trip was meeting all the fine people living in and around Portland. Already plotting a return to next year's fest.
