April 2010 is Comic Book Month in Portland, Oregon

And to kick off the event – Stumptown Comics, the Sequential Art Gallery and McTarnahan’s Brewing Co. hosted an art show at the Portland Center for Performing Arts.

Dan Robertson and I attended, had a few drinks with locally distilled vodka and brewed beer, then took in the art. Mayor Sam Adams made an appearance and officially proclaimed April 2010 to be Comic Book Month in Portland, Oregon.

Free guided tours featuring the PCPA exhibit as well as other local galleries (City Hall) will be provided to Stumptown attendees during the fest. Lots of cool artwork up on the walls. Really stoked for the Stumptown Comics Fest at the end of the month.

Check out a video I put together of the Mayor’s speech. An entertaining, funny and laid back dude.
