Lotsa catching up to do. Like for instance, that Comic Art Battle in which Team Alternative thrashed us, Team Mainstream, like wicked children. I don't really need to decribe it, because Mote Magazine did an excellent job of reporting so that all of Canada knows about it. And there are even more pictures over at the Mercury Studio blog so you can get a better grasp of the violence and carnage. See how I was overpowered by those ruffians of Team Alternative as Nicole George tore my shoe bodily from me. See the intense workgaze of David Hahn, and Drew Johnson do his best Brando "Stella!" yell. Watch Lieber go into full "heel" mode for the crowd.
By now I believe the organizer, cartoonist Ezra Claytan Daniels has settled into his new home of Chicago. We artists of Portland wish him well in toughguy city, and encourage you to check out his dope website Dream Chocolate.
