    Stumptown Comics Fest is amazing, would love to win tickets! Me and my husband are super nerds and need to go! :)

  2. tom April 24, 2012 at 7:38 pm #

    I’m all in. Would love to take my gf. She’d go if she really loved me. Instead- she’ll need freebies.

  3. thecook April 24, 2012 at 7:54 pm #

    I love comic books

  4. Jeff Huth April 24, 2012 at 8:24 pm #

    My wife and I read comics to one another in bed. Its like foreplay…

  5. panda April 25, 2012 at 12:05 am #

    i’m thinking my boss would love this.

  6. Mike April 25, 2012 at 3:49 am #

    Nerds and Geeks Galore! My kinda place to spend time and help keep Portland Weird!

  7. Derek Neuland April 25, 2012 at 12:24 pm #

    I would love to attend Stumptown Comics Fest this year because I have gone every year since I’ve moved to Portland in 2009, but this year might be the first year i’m unable to go due to lack of funds.

  8. katie April 25, 2012 at 12:24 pm #

    i’d like to bring my new-to-portland/new-to-webcomics boyfriend to see what a vibrant and diverse comics community we have here!

  9. Alisha April 25, 2012 at 12:32 pm #

    A comics fest that doesn’t require driving to Seattle? Sign me up, please!

  10. Ed Kuehnel April 25, 2012 at 12:34 pm #

    I’d like to attend with my children to help foster their budding romance with comics; to encourage them to draw and create stories with pictures.

  11. Stefan Jones April 25, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

    I go to Stumptown each year to (in addition to seeing discussions) drop $100 in the dealer’s room on new indie comics.

  12. Hannah McLain April 25, 2012 at 12:38 pm #

    I want to attend so I can support the hard work of indie comics artists, especially KINOKO who will be selling her thesis project issue 1 of her retelling of The Epic of Gilgamesh. PNCA ARTISTS REPRESENT <3

  13. Rob casteel April 25, 2012 at 12:39 pm #

    Stumptown is the best comic show in town and the Stumptown crew is awesome for giving away tickets!!!

  14. Peter Lapp April 25, 2012 at 12:40 pm #

    I’m already making a fine place for those tickets to rest – in my pocket. I’ve never gone to Stumptown before and it’s about damn that changed. My girlfriend’s never been before either and I’m sure she’d love nothing more than to hang out all weekend geeking over gorgeous Allred prints.

  15. Lesley April 25, 2012 at 12:49 pm #

    I took my son last year and we had so much fun. He’s been saving his allowance up so he can buy more stuff this year!

  16. Dyche April 25, 2012 at 12:57 pm #

    I’d LOVE to win tickets to the Fest!It gets bigger and better each year!

  17. Scott April 25, 2012 at 12:58 pm #

    The last couple of years I’ve had to work on the weekends that Stumptown fell on. I’ve always wanted to go and this year I finally have the opportunity, which is exciting in and of itself. I hope it’ll be as fun as everyone as said.

  18. PhilipF April 25, 2012 at 1:02 pm #

    I would love to attend Stumptown this year, as I have in the past, but money is too tight right now. So I’d really love it if I won a pair of passes.

  19. Matt April 25, 2012 at 1:08 pm #

    Stumptown is my kind of comics fest: no stormtroopers or Playstation reps, tons of local folks/companies, and scads of new-to-me artists and works to blow my mind. My family and I look forward to it all year.

  20. Gerald Atkins Jr April 25, 2012 at 1:19 pm #

    I would like to check out STCF because I’ve never been to a comicon before and it looks rad.

  21. Andrew Nisbet April 25, 2012 at 1:33 pm #

    I want to attend because this is the only festival of it’s kind in the state. They always have a great selection of guests, panels, and workshops. And by winning passes, it gives me that much more money to spend at the show.

  22. Kyle stone-chilla April 25, 2012 at 1:51 pm #

    The new la brujeriais debuting. Need I say more?

  23. Richard A. Scott April 25, 2012 at 2:06 pm #

    I would like to attend. I’m broke as a joke. So a Broke walks into a bar…

  24. Nicole April 25, 2012 at 3:51 pm #

    My geek cred needs to level up!

  25. Orion April 26, 2012 at 1:13 am #

    I’d like a free pass!

  26. Kate April 26, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    tickets please?

  27. Sol April 26, 2012 at 1:14 pm #

    Yes, please. Going in any case, but a free pass means more moolah to spend on comics and stuff…

  28. Natalie Sneed April 26, 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    The idea of going to this comic festival makes me so happy! I’ve only just gotten into comics the last few years, but I love them forever !!!

  29. Hannah April 26, 2012 at 3:21 pm #

    I haven’t been to Stumptown for years. My best friend is in town from the other side of the country, and it would be so much fun to go with her.

  30. Brian Copk April 26, 2012 at 4:02 pm #

    I wanna go

  31. Alex April 26, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    I would love these tickets because my boyfriend moved here in January from Philadelphia and still isn’t convinced that Portland is the shit. He is a HUGE comics lover and going to the comicfest would definitely help win him over that he needs to stay in Portland with me :)

  32. Lynn April 26, 2012 at 4:18 pm #

    my husband is the biggest comic book fan and I’m learning to love them since we just moved to Portland- the comic book lovers dream city :)

  33. Jacob April 26, 2012 at 4:19 pm #

    Hoping I win. Comics!

  34. Nick April 26, 2012 at 4:31 pm #

    You can help a poor girl and her hapless father escape the two-dimensional world of library, park, coffee shop, into which they drift every weekend. A three-dimensional passage through the Convention Center altered by otherworldly things would be just the ticket(s).

  35. Joe M. April 26, 2012 at 4:34 pm #

    Been reading comics all my life and a huge supporter of stumptown, cheers!

  36. Carolyn April 26, 2012 at 4:41 pm #

    I like comics….

  37. Dawn April 26, 2012 at 4:45 pm #

    The husband would love this. The festival is actually on his weekend plans, but winning tickets would be gravy for him.

  38. Sara Leighton April 26, 2012 at 4:47 pm #

    Please add a lady to this convention! (I will do)

  39. Jess April 26, 2012 at 4:48 pm #

    I am new to portland, and have wanted to attend stumptown comics fest for the last 4 years, due to lack of funds and illness and this and that, i’ve never had the chance. I’d love to go this year!

  40. Mikel Sauve April 26, 2012 at 4:56 pm #

    This would be my 1st time to attend SCF & I would really like to go!!!

  41. Johnny April 26, 2012 at 4:58 pm #

  42. Maleah April 26, 2012 at 5:45 pm #

  50. Heather April 26, 2012 at 10:39 pm #

    I love the selection of workshops and vendors! And actually getting to meet the creators and artists face to face!

  51. Mandi April 26, 2012 at 11:12 pm #

    Oh, dear… We just moved to Portland and my hubby is DYING to find his niche in the comic community.. He would love to attend this event!

  52. Robin April 26, 2012 at 11:26 pm #

    I want to go for this simple reason: E. K. Weaver.

  53. Hannah April 26, 2012 at 11:41 pm #

    I can’t wait.

  54. Mia April 26, 2012 at 11:46 pm #

    Just want to hang out, learn and bag cool comics.

  55. Leashy April 26, 2012 at 11:59 pm #

    I love comics and I want to support local artists and make my boyfriend do so as well!

  56. Celina Hernandez April 27, 2012 at 4:01 am #

    I’d love to win passes for me and my partner in crime. The fact that Portland is a town made for comic artists is just one of the reasons we fell in love w/Portland and why we moved here as soon as we could.

  57. Stephanie April 27, 2012 at 5:41 am #

    I go to this event every year, and it would really be rad to be able to go both days!

  58. Vanessa Wilson April 27, 2012 at 9:44 am #

    I love comics! This would be awesome!

  59. Carolyn Wiesner April 27, 2012 at 11:11 am #

    I’ve never been able to go to this. Sounds like it would be amazing!

  60. free April 27, 2012 at 12:54 pm #
