Spring is upon us once again and with it comes a most cherished tradition. No, we aren’t talking about the swallows returning to Capistrano, this is far more important than that. You see, it is almost the first Saturday in May.
Yes, that’s right. Free Comic Book Day is almost here! Of course this means you need to make plans to visit TFAW this Saturday, May 7th. The good folks at TFAW have put together a stunning collection of comic book creators, who will be at all three Portland area locations. And that is on top of special deals like $2 doorbuster graphic novels, 60% off hundreds of sale items and TFAW Bucks!

PDXYAR will, once again, be adding a decidedly pirate flavour to the day as we will be on hand at the Milwaukie & Portland Things From Another World locations from 10am – 4pm, We will be singing shanties, engaging in a fight or two and of course posing for pictures! There is even a rumour that there might be a round or two a Scallywag Hunt with the chance to win swag as well (Click here to follow PDXYAR on Twitter and get in on the fun).
Oh and, speaking of photography, TFAW has set up a Flickr Group Pool where you can share the photos you take at the event. You can join the group here.
Now if you find yourself not being able to make it to the Portland or Milwaukie locations, do not fret- all is not lost. While there won’t be a pirating presence at the Beaverton TFAW (not officially at least), there will be duly sworn representatives of the Empire on hand throughout the day. The great folks from the Vader’s Fist, the 501st Legion’s Cloud City Garrison will be manning their posts at the Beaverton TFAW store from 11am until 6pm. While they will definitely be posing for photos, I can’t promise you will get any intergalactic shanty singing out of them though. On top of all of this, if you get by the store between 4pm and 7pm, you will be able to meet a great artist and one of PDXYAR’s close friends, Dane Ault.
