Events Around The Country

As promised yesterday, the Third Annual Stumptown Comics Fest is kicking off at the end of the month in Portland, OR; as a relatively new event, this one has fallen a bit below the radar, but to me, it seems like a Pacific Northwest version of MoCCA. Check out the attendees list, which includes Christopher Baldwin, Vera Brosgol, Kazu Kibuishi, Jenn Manley Lee, David Malki !, Dylan Meconis, Kevin Moore, Los Bros Smith, Colleen AF Venable, and Chris Yates. Plus, the other Dinosaur Comics.

If you make it to SPX in Bethesda this weekend, something you might want to check out would be the stage production of Get Your War On, playing in DC through Saturday. Yesterday’s Washington Post had a hell of a good review of the show.

And if you can’t make it to SPX this weekend, there’s a good chance it’s because you’re at the launch party for Andy Bell‘s new Psycho Zliks toys in Manhattan. It’s a little early for Halloween, but knowing Bell’s work, you’ll still have that creeped-out, not-so-fresh feeling in 2½ weeks.



Although I must concede “The savage world of SUNFLOWER” is a pretty awesome title for a book.

Yeah, Ryan, that’s how I reacted: “You mean there are two?”

That Washington Post review was great, but I loved this:

“Most of these sarcasm-laden exchanges cannot be reported here, and even those that can lose something when not being uttered with perfect glibness by the personable, conservatively attired actors, who are all swell…”

I mean, would that be perfect parody for a Daily Show correspondent, or what?
