Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland:
My buddy Chris (who put on a similar show here in Austin last year called STAPLE) is taking the trip up to Portland in October to go to the second Stumptown Comics Fest, which looks like a blast. I'm extremely jealous, and if I could manage the flight/hotel expenses, I'd be going too.
I really want to visit Portland at some point, and this would be a great excuse. Maybe next year. If any of you are in the Portland area, this looks like a great comics festival.
