To celebrate the release of the latest issue of Papercutter, Floating World Comics is hosting an art exhibit featuring an all star cast of Portland cartoonists who have been featured in previous issues of the local anthology.
Papercutter was launched in early 2005 by editor Greg Means as a showcase for emerging and underexposed cartoonists from Portland and across the country. Drawing from his background as librarian at Portland's renowned art hub The Independent Publishing Resource Center, Means has put together sixteen issues featuring dozen of comic book artists that cut their teeth in the world of zines and minicomics. Stories from Papercutter have gone on to be included in Best American Comics, been turned into graphic novels from major publishers, and have won four straight Ignatz Awards.
