View from the Gutters presents Back Matter #5.NOW — Rose City Comic Con

Back Matter is our roundtable discussion show focused on all things news worthy in the world of comics. From the big buzz around the latest comics to comic book movies and TV shows, as well as other discussion that didn’t make it into our main show. Feel free to email us discussion ideas or any comments or questions you might have at

On this episode of Back Matter we present our thoughts and experiences from Rose City Comic Con 2014, which took place on September 20-21 in Portland, Oregon. We had a great time and are eagerly looking forward to attending again next year.

We also have an interview with Patrick Mapp, who was for about two decades the co-owner—along with his wife Kendra—of The Danger Room, one of our local comic shops in Olympia. In this special interview Patrick and Tobiah sit down to discuss the evolution of the comics marketplace, what it’s like to own a comic shop, and some of Pat’s thoughts on the comics community.

Our hosts on this episode were Tobiah Panshin, Joe Preti, Audrey Preti, and Kayleigh Fleeman.
