Everyone please face West. And slightly North.

According to Dark Horse CEO, Mike Richardson, I am living in Mecca.

In those days when I was first starting my business, the only way to get into comics was to go to New York. We saw, because of the ability to work together at long distances that evolved, comics companies started appearing pretty much anywhere. If there's any city that was more remote from the comic book industry than Portland, Oregon, I don't know what it was. But right now, if you've been paying attention, Portland is now a comics Mecca. There are companies springing up; there's a huge creative community here and a lot of talented people working here.
