Portland’s LInework NW comic arts festival is on indefinite hold, meaning Comics Town, USA doens’t have its own indie show.

So we’re doing our best to cover this, but maybe what we need is a PDX correspondent?
Anyhoo, Stumptown actually has a great events page with all the weekend goings on. So we’ll put post the pictures and links here. Send us reports!
