Stumptown Coffee has taken steps to make sure UNDERGROUND USA won’t be under caffeinated. Very much needed, and very much appreciated.
Our coffee captain is Gretchen Harmon, who doubles as the first mate in charge of hospitality. Gretchen has her own connection to Portland’s historical pop magnificence, which she wrote about here. Yes, if you bring her book, she will sign it!

UNDERGROUND USA is a public history/art education event made possible in part by a grant from the Kinsman Foundation and by a grant from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. It is presented by Oregon Cartoon Institute in partnership with UO Comics & Cartooning Studies and PSU Comic Studies, with support from Oregon Historical Society and McMenamins.
Comic City USA, the first exhibit to look at Oregon print cartooning history, is at Oregon Historical Society, 1200 SW Park Avenue, through Jan. 31, 2017.
“People who read them when they first came out remember the initial impact — like getting whacked in the head with a two by four.” Patrick Rosenkranz, on underground comics
