First Thursday, last Mercury post. 

Lightly edited from Floating World's myspace blog:

Portland’s best kept secret: we are a comics town. The list of local comics creators and publishers gets larger every year. I think it should be a point of pride that Portland is the West Coast comics capital of the nation.

For example, PERISCOPE (formerly MERCURY STUDIO) located in downtown Portland is the largest in the comic book industry. Home to over 20 artists and writers (including the artists of Superman, Batman,Wonder Woman, Fantastic Four, and Spider-Man), this studio represents the best professionals working in the industry as well as new emerging artists.

First Thursday, June 7th from 6–10pm, Floating World Comics is proud to present a PERISCOPE STUDIO art show featuring as much of their all-star roster we could fit in the store! The following artists will be on hand displaying original comic art and comics:

STEVE LIEBER (Whiteout, Gotham Central, Civil War Frontline – Eisner Award Winner)
PAUL GUINAN (Heartbreakers, Boilerplate – alternate history steampunk, featured in US News & Report and NY Times)
KARL KESEL (Fantastic Four, Spider-Man)
DAVID HAHN (Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, Bite Club, Private Beach)
COLLEEN COOVER (Banana Sunday, Small Favors – best girly porno comic ever)
DYLAN MECONIS (Wire Mothers: Harry Harlow and the Science of Love – history of psychology, featured in Publishers Weekly)
JESSE HAMM (Good As Lily, a new Minx title – DC’s new imprint aimed at young teens and female readers)
RON CHAN (A Dummy’s Guide To Danger)

Actually, Dylan will be on an airplane, and I'll still be in Ohio, but the rest is right on target. But what's all this about a new name? Stay tuned for the press release!
