Potlatch 2 is a benefit book to aid ORCA (Organized Readers of Comics Associated). ORCA promotes the reading of comic books to outside industry avenues such as libraries and schools. Each year they give away thousands of books, to inspire readership and support of our hobby and the business of comic books. The 18 different creators featured in this publication donated their time, effort, and stories towards helping this cause. The ten assorted tales compiled in this collection run the gamut on genres - so there is something for everyone.

Contributors on this Potlatch Project are: Lonnie Allen, Sal Cipriano, Jen Contino, Marc Deering, Marco Dileonardo,, Kenneth V. Heidrrich, Chris Jaworski, Dennis Kinninger, Ron Lebraseur, Barrett Lombardo, Andy MacDonald, Russ McIntosh, Juan Navarro, Steven Noppenberger, Rick Onley, Christian Rogue, Chris Staggs and Greg Vondruska
