Battle of the art-board stars: Canada's Mote Magazine reports on the Fourth-Ever Comic Art Battle held Aug. 14 in Portland, Ore., which pitted Team "Alternative" -- Bwana Spoons, Nathan Beaty, Nicole George and Aaron Renier -- against Team "Mainsteam" -- David Hahn, Drew Johnson, Steve Lieber and Jeff Parker:

"A big part of these events for me is putting the decidedly reclusive pursuit of making comics into a very interactive, and exciting public arena. People really get into these things. At Saturday's battle, there was a whole section of people who came with giant foam fingers to help cheer on their team."

Team "Alternative" won.
