Time for Free Comic Book Day!

Trivia Question: what is the significance of the first Saturday in May?

Answer:

Yes, that’s right. Free Comic Book Day is almost here! Of course this means you need to make plans to visit your local Things From Another World on Saturday, May 5th. 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 the special free comics–while supplies last–as well as big savings, and even the beginnings of TFAW’s astonishing Mega Sale.

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. We will be singing shanties, engaging in a fight or two and of course posing for pictures!

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 and even the Rebel Alliance will be on hand throughout the day. As the great folks from the Vader’s Fist, the 501st Legion’s Cloud City Garrison will be joined by the Kashyyyk Base Rebel Legion 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.
