By Request/Festivals Extra: 2nd Iteration Of Portland's Projects Festival Languishes Far Below Goal
The Kickstarter campaign for The Projects II languishes far below its hoped-for return with three days left to raise the money. Like Joss Whedon television show, small press festivals tend to accelerate in quality with a second crack at things, so one hopes that Portland-area and Portland-visiting cartoonists and comics-makers and fans of both species might consider contributing. I did not attend the first and will not attend the second, but I love the Portland comics community and I am a big fan of conventions/festival that break with formula. This show's decidedly non-commerce driven approach certainly qualifies.
