At Work on History Comic #2!
Only ten days left to meet our goal, friends!
We're 82 percent of the way there and I'm hopeful we'll make it, but NOW would be the time to send the Kickstart link to friends you think will support the project. Thanks for being a part of making these comics happen!
While history comic #1, about Lone Fir Cemetery, is already in local Portland stores, we're getting rolling on history comic #2. This second issue will tell the story of the X-Ray Cafe, an early nineties all ages music venue and hang out spot that had a major influence Portland's current music scene and alternative culture.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of interviewing X-Ray Cafe owner (and current owner of VooDoo Donuts) Tres Shannon. With his dog Oprah Winfrey at his feet, Tres talked about how the kids who came to the X-Ray were so damn weird that they scared the drug dealers off the cafe's West Burnside block, he recalled the days when Hole, Green Day and Bikini Kill played the club and the times when people come up to him today on the streets to talk about how the X-Ray changed their lives. Tres is quite a character—perfect material for the second comic!
