Free Comic Book Day a Huge Hit With Fans of All Ages

Wow! We just had an excellent weekend of comic book magic, thanks to an excellent turnout at all three of our Oregon stores for Free Comic Book Day! We want to thank all of our creators, including Terry and Rachel Dodson, Steve Lieber, Dave Stewart, Scott Allie, the Pander Bros., Bluewater Productions, Erika Moen, and so many more (see a full list here) for coming in, signing for fans, drawing sketches, and just being fun people to hang out with. We also want to thank the pirates of PDX YAR and the Stormtroopers from Cloud City Garrison for entertaining everyone at our stores.

Check out our video and photo gallery below:
