Stumptown Release Party w/ Greg Rucka and Matt Southworth, at Bridge City Comics on Mar 25th


If you live in Portland, I’d highly recommend dropping by Bridge City Comics on March 25th, because both Greg Rucka and Matt Southworth will be at the store, to celebrate the release of Stumptown, Volume 1 HC, which collects the first four issues of the Oni Press series.

If you’ve not read any of Stumptown, then this is your chance to catch up on one of the best crime comics in recent memory. If you’ve already read the single issues, I’d still recommend picking this up, because Oni have done a beautiful job on the collection. I saw a pre-release version of the book at Emerald City Comicon and it looks well worth the cover price. The artwork looks even better collected, because Matt’s had a chance to go back and fix a few things, to make it look more like how he intended it to look.

About Stumptown:

Dex Parios is the proprietor of Stumptown Investigations, and a fairly talented P.I. Unfortunately, she’s less adept at throwing dice than solving cases. Her recent streak has left her beyond broke - she’s in to the Confederated Tribes of the Wind Coast for 18 large. But maybe Dex’s luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast’s casino operation, will clear Dex’s debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne’s missing granddaughter. But is this job Dex’s way out of the hole or a shove down one much much deeper?
