I WAS GOING to (belatedly) write up a thing about how well November’s Comics Underground went, but Christian Lipski at the Portland Examiner went ahead and did it for me. Thanks Christian!
Comics Underground is something that should always have existed. It brings to mind the salons of the 17th and 18th centuries, with artists gathering to present their work to a patron, but also to one another. Standup comics, too, frequent out-of-the-way clubs where they can showcase their latest material among colleagues.
The Portland comics community is unlike any other, and close interaction of its members (and fans) can only enhance the goodwill towards the art form.
That makes it sound so fancy!
Stay tuned for details on the next Comics Underground.
