Bold Riley (and Justin Hall!) in the Portland Mercury

The most recent Comics Roundup in The Portland Mercury features not one, but two Northwest press talents. The new anthology No Straight Lines: Four Decades of Queer Comics from Fantagraphics, edited by Justin Hall (Glamazonia: The Uncanny Super-Tranny) gets an enthusiastic endorsement from Alison Hallett, and Leia Weathington’s The Legend of Bold Riley (and the release party in Portland this Saturday) get a big thumbs up from Courtney Ferguson.

The Legend of Bold Riley is a goofy and enjoyable Arabian Nights-style collection that never makes a hullabaloo that its strong sword-brandishing hero and righter of wrongs is a woman (a woman who loves the ladies, no less), because, duh, why the fuck wouldn’t she be?

Check out both reviews on the Portland Mercury site!
