It doesn’t get much more Portland than a comic convention in the autumn. I rode the MAX to the show, which gets me slightly fewer PDX Points than riding my bike there.
Since Stumptown’s last hurrah, I’ve been looking for a Portland show to replace it. Rose City has found its footing as the new comics show not just for indie folk like myself, but for local publishers and a handful of bona fide celebrities as well. Big Bird! Princess Leia! Now I want to see the Sesame Street/Star Wars crossover.
My first Rose City was an incredibly pleasant experience, one that I hope to have again next year.
