A number of syndicated and self-syndicated cartoonists will be speaking this weekend at the Sept. 28-30 Stumptown Comics Fest in Portland, Ore.
They include Universal Press Syndicate editorial cartoonist Ted Rall (who’s also United Media’s acquisition and development editor) and United editorial cartoonist Matt Bors.
Joining Rall and Bors on a Saturday-morning panel will be four other creators who’ve appeared in Rall’s “Cartoonists With Attitude” (CWA) books. They include Barry Deutsch, Stephanie McMillan, Ben Smith, and Shannon Wheeler.
Two other CWAers — Mikhaela Reid and Masheka Wood — will appear this evening at the Center for New Words in Cambridge, Mass., for a slideshow, discussion, and book signing. Their recently released collections are titled “Attack of the 50-Foot Mikhaela!: Cartoons by Mikhaela Reid” and “Deep Doodle: Cartoons by Masheka Wood.”
