Did y'all know April is Comic Book Month in Portland?
There are several comic events happening throughout the month, including an art exhibit this Thursday (April 4th) at City Hall.

In addition, there will be over 30 local comic book creators, publishers, educators, nonprofits, and collectives, showcasing the range of talent and diversity in the Portland comic community.
It’s free, open to the public, and there will be pizza and kombucha!
Some of the exhibitors include: Dark Horse Comics, Floating World Comics, Sophie Franz (poster artist), Helioscope, IDW Woodworks, The Nib, Portland Zine Symposium, Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, and many more!

COMICS ART EXHIBITION: SEQUENTIAL SELF
I’m excited to be apart of this show and have a few of my original comics on display!
“The Galleries at Eastfield College present Sequential Self: Female, Non-Binary, Trans, and Queer Voices in Comics and Zines, an exhibition focusing on underrepresented artists in the genre of comics and zines. Female, Non-Binary, Trans, and Queer voices, though not new to the comics genre, have existed at the margins while predominantly cis white male voices and characters were the focus of mainstream comics. Since the recent growth in diversity among comic artists and writers, there are now more voices and stories that reflect a variety of experiences and identities. This exhibition illuminates some of the powerful voices and innovative stories in the contemporary age of comics.”
The show, curated by Iris Bechtol and Lynné Bowman Cravens, also includes work by Sophie Campbell, KD Diamond, Robin Elan and L.M. Zoller, Melanie Gillman, Sarah Glidden, Erika Moen, Molly Roth, and Christine Suggs.
