Portland, Oregon - October 30, 2012 -- Registration for booth and table space for the 10th Annual Stumptown Comics Festival is now open to artists and publishers looking to exhibit at the creator-focused event running April 27-28, 2013 at the Oregon Convention Center.
As previously announced, Fables creator Bill Willingham will be a special guest of the festival. Also joining as guests are artist of War Is Boring and political cartoonist Matt Bors, Nobrow Press illustrator and Birchfield Close creator Jon McNaught, Boilerplate and Frank Reade creators Paul Guinan and Anina Bennett, Mara artist Ming Doyle, Wild Children writer Ales Kot, and many more creators to be revealed soon.
The 10th anniversary of the Stumptown Comics Festival marks a notable shift for the independent event with the selection of several new chairpersons to the organizing board, but continues to embrace the strong tradition of creator-focused programming that volunteers have cultivated over the last decade.
Stumptown Comics Festival will also begin the curated selection process soon and provide feedback to any creators who may want tips for how to be selected to exhibit in the limited space. Similarly, the yet-to-be-released convention floor will be laid-out in a more equitable fashion than standard conventions to be more accommodating to creators of all types.
