On August 14th a cool comics show will be opening at the Oregon Historical Society in downtown Portland.
From the earliest Oregon cartoonists to those of us working in the industry today, Comic City, USA highlights 13 influential comic artists and writers who have helped Oregon become on of the largest centers for comic production in the country. Stone Soup will be included in this show.
Mike Peters will be honored with his very own day by the Billy Ireland Cartoon Library in Columbus Ohio, Saturday Nov. 12 (Their website still says Nov. 5 but they told me they've changed it...) The exhibit of his work will run through March 12, 2017. Mike is an AMAZING cartoonist and hysterically funny guy, so if you ever get the chance to hear him speak, DO IT.
Finally, my newest book is shipping to retailers as we speak. Officially it's an August 1 release. If you can't order it yet, you can pre-order it and it will come to you very soon. I hope you like it! It's a good one.
Happy Summer to all! ---Jan
