hipslikecinderfella asked: Can you recommend your favorite lady-friendly comic shops in Portland? I'm moving there in a couple of weeks and I need to find a new home for my subscriptions.
You have chosen well, my friend. There is an embarrassment of riches in this town — Excalibur, Cosmic Monkey, Bridge City, TFAW Hollywood, Floating World… you’ll be in good hands wherever you go. Excalibur is even owned and run by a woman — it’s been in her family for (I think) 40 years.
