Official Press Release
Stumptown is honored to be welcoming indie-comics wunderkind Paul Pope as a guest of the April 24-25 2010 Comics Fest! Pope originally launched himself onto the self-publishing stage in 1993 with his genre-defying work Sin Titulo. His second published work, The Ballad of Doctor Richardson, earned Pope an Eisner nomination and was later reprinted by Portland’s Dark Horse Comics. In the years since, Pope’s vicious, ‘take-no-prisoners’ approach to brush work, and his unique world-building talents have earned him numerous accolades over the years on such work as THB, Batman: Year 100, Heavy Liquid, and One-Trick Ripoff, and he is also the only American comics artist to have worked with Japanese manga publisher Kodansha for over five years!
We’ll be posting additional information about Paul’s appearance in the weeks leading up to the Comics Fest at our convention blog at http://www.stumptowncomics.com, so keep checking back!
