PEG in the PDX

Hellooooo Portland! I am excited to announce that I will be asking my first trip ever to the NW (not including Vancouver) as D+Q will be making its debut appearance at the Stumptown Comics Festival. How could we not? This festival comes highly recommended by my pals Eric Reynolds of Fantagraphics, Brett Warnock of Top Shelf and Charles Brownstein of the CBLDF.

And as a publisher, Portland is one of the best comics cities ever! I am dying to visit a city that counts Joe Sacco as one of their esteemed residents not to mention the critic Mr. Wolk AND extremely supportive press such as the Oregonian, Willamette Weekly and The Portland Mercury. And, holy smokes, let's list the stores in no particular order: Powells, Reading Frenzy, Cosmic Monkey, Bridge City, Floating World, Excalibur, Guapo, and what else? Did I miss any other store?! Let me know. And let's not forget that it is the HQ of Top Shelf, Dark Horse, ONI and Spark Plug. And let's not forget Wordstock! What the heck is in the water there? Perhaps it is in relation to the number of microbreweries? PEOPLE! THIS CITY LOVES COMICS! A GRAPHIC SHANGRI LA, XANADU, HICKSVILLE!!!

So to commemorate this occasion, D+Q is bringing two superstar guests to the festival including R. Sikoryak of Masterpiece Comics and James Sturm of Market Day, James has a kick off event for the weekend at Powell's on Thursday the 22nd! Show us east coasters some love!
