Publisher Ken Eppstein and the artists of Nix Comics have something to celebrate today, and it doesn't involve a saint. The local comic publisher's first issue, which was released in January, was nominated for "Best Anthology" in Portland's Stumptown Comics Fest competition. Ever humble, Eppstein calls it "a pleasure just to be nominated." If you think they should win, go vote here. The second issue is due out April 15.
