Tom Spurgeon has a partial, social-media assembled list of the winners of the 2014 Stumptown Awards which were apparently given out at the Rose City Comic Fest. The Stumptown Awards were formerly given out at the Stumptown Festival, which went south because of disorganization, and if anything speaks of disorganization and not-feelin’-it-any-more it’s not announcing the winners of your award to the world by even the TUESDAY following your ceremony.
So congrats to the fine cartoonists represented below but FIE ON YOU STUMPTOWN AWARDS.
