Q:Hi Lisa. I am quite old and I have no children. How can I leave behind a lasting trace of my physical body that will never die?
Linework NW is proud to announce our second special guest, JIM WOODRING!
One of the all time greats of American cartooning and a legendary figure in Pacific Northwest arts, Jim Woodring is an accomplished illustrator and oil painter, and his creations have also been translated into 3D in the form of toys. He is best known for his surreal comic series JIM, from which sprang the iconic character Frank. You may also know him from his quest to create a giant, functional pen nib, which he’ll be bringing to Linework NW!
"Jim Woodring is one of the great cartoonists of his generation, and probably one or two generations on each side of his own. He’s one of those cartoonists that raises one’s estimation of the entire art form for him being [in] it." – Tom Spurgeon, The Comics Reporter"Mr. Woodring’s imagery mimics the look of antique wood engravings and animated cartoons of the 1930s while tapping deeply into reservoirs of mythic imagination." – The New York Times
We couldn’t be happier to welcome Jim to Linework NW & Portland in general. Stay tuned for specific announcements regarding programming, to come soon!
Alright folks. This is it. The final push! Final orders for THE FIELD #1 are due on Monday, March 10th. That’s in just a few short days.
If you haven’t asked your LCS to carry the book, please do.
I’ve said it before, but I’m saying it again: I’m immensely proud of this book and thing that readers are really going to dig it. You’ve got an underwear clad amnesiac; and ex-Bible salesman on a meth induced murder spree; a bunch of bad assed bikers and a cavorting crew of cosplayers on a quest to save civilization. What more could you ask for? We’ve got Simon (PROPHET, JAN’S ATOMIC HEART) Roy’s incredible art between (and on) the covers. We’ve got the amazing Simon Gough throwing down some sick, sick colors. Published by Image Comics.
So, please, walk on down to your LCS and make sure that they’ve got your back.
All retumbls and retweets and repostings of any sort are greatly appreciated.

Indie Comics and Zines Mail-order and Distro based in London, UK
UK-based folks can get Titan over at Impossible Books, so cool:
“One of the excellent comics published on Study Group Comics’s website is Titan, by Francois Vigneault. It’s even better in print, where the space-based tale of productivity, downsizing, and the tumult surrounding them comes to life.”
PORTLAND! Linework NW comics/illustration fest is on April 12th. It’s still a little while away, but I’m so fuk’n stoked that I can’t keep my mouth shut about it.

Reuben Storey (Rigg & Ratt, Toiletry and Mutation, Moldy Castle)
Eric “Gutrot” Benton (Snakebomb 3, Night Watch Zine)
