Award-winning author Greg Rucka and rising superstar artist Matt Southworth will be on hand to sign copies of Stumptown, the brand new hard cover graphic novel collection of their four issue miniseries of the same name. Stumptown is a hard-boiled detective story about a female P.I. in Portland. Copies of Stumptown will be available for purchase during the signing.
In addition, Bridge City Comics is teaming up with Stumptown publisher Oni Press to produce a limited edition print, featuring brand new Stumptown artwork (created by series artist Matt Southworth), for sale only at this event!
Dex Parios is the proprietor of Stumptown Investigations, and a fairly talented P.I. Unfortunately, she’s less adept at throwing dice than solving cases. Her recent streak has left her beyond broke – she’s in to the Confederated Tribes of the Wind Coast for 18 large. But maybe Dex’s luck is about to change. Sue-Lynne, head of the Wind Coast’s casino operation, will clear Dex’s debt if she can locate Sue-Lynne’s missing granddaughter. But is this job Dex’s way out of the hole or a shove down one much much deeper?
