Stumptown Comics Festival 2011


The 8th annual Stumptown Comics Festival takes place April 16-17 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, OR.

The Stumptown Comics Fest was started almost on a whim in 2004 by a small group of Portland-area cartoonists lamenting the lack of local convention-style outlets. While there were certainly other comic book shows in town, there weren’t any that gave much attention to the artists themselves. The dream was to design a festival with the creators as its focus, rather than dealers and work-for-hire publishers.
