Wednesday night, Bridge City Comics in Portland, Oregon, hosted a release party for the Pacific Northwest College of Art’s graphic novel anthology, “Intense.” Since Bridge City is the shop with all my comic subscriptions (my box is on the bottom in the middle), I swung by to say hi and pick up my copy. Five of the authors were on hand, and I had them sign my book. Yay!
Apparently, last summer Jessica Abel and Matt Madden taught a three-day comic book workshop, and the students took their creations and published them. There were eight comics in the book, plus an intro by Abel and Madden and a bonus mini comic — all for the sweet price of six bucks. (Plus the books in my box, plus a copy of The Comics Journal. Whatevs.)
