Moving on to the fast approaching Stumptown, Floating World is debuting a new issue of DIAMOND, with a cover by Paul Pope and other good stuff. Jason Leivian writes:
The latest full color issue of DIAMOND is at the printers right now and is due to arrive this Wednesday, April 13. Like the previous issue, we’ve teamed up with the Portland Mercury for distribution. 5000 copies will be included as a FREE insert in the 4/14 issue of the Mercury coming out next week.
We’re holding onto 1000 copies which will be sold at the store and through distributors like Last Gasp, Tony Shenton, Copacetic… Orders may also be placed directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
I’d like to give a special thanks to our sponsors that made this issue possible: Koyama Press, Tugboat Press, Ground Kontrol Arcade, Stumptown Coffee, Drippy Bone Books, and Stumptown Comics Fest.
