Dark Horse founder Mike Richardson signs 47 Ronin at Things From Another World in Beaverton, OR on Wednesday, July 9th from 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm!

Press Release:

Since founding Things From Another World in 1979 and Dark Horse Comics in 1986, Mike Richardson has accomplished many things, including opening a dozen retail locations, producing nearly 30 films and TV series, and writing countless comics, books, and graphic novels.

Now he returns to his roots with a 47 Ronin Signing and Meet & Greet July 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Beaverton TFAW–where he worked the counter from 1982 to 1988! Both longtime customers and new faces are invited to catch up with Richardson while enjoying free food and beer (21+ with ID).

With 47 Ronin, Richardson has brought Japan’s enduring national legend to comics–with artist Stan Sakai (Usagi Yojimbo). The tale of the 47 Ronin and their epic mission to avenge their wronged master epitomizes the samurai code of honor, and Richardson and Sakai have done justice to their story! Meticulously researched and beautifully illustrated, this collection of the acclaimed miniseries recounts this sweeping saga of honor and violence in all its grandeur.

Now’s your chance to enjoy an evening with Mike Richardson at the Beaverton TFAW July 9 from 6 to 9 p.m. Catch up with Richardson, enjoy free food and beer, and purchase your copy of the 47 Ronin hardcover graphic novel for just $19.99!

Comments Off on UK – Chew Signing

chew7Writer John Layman signs ‘Chew’ Comics and Graphic Novels at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Monday 17th March from 6:00 to 7:00pm!

Tony Chu is a cop with a secret. A weird secret. Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats. It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why. It’s a dirty job – and Tony has to eat terrible things in the name of justice. And if that wasn’t bad enough, the government has figured out Tony Chu`s secret. They have plans for him… whether he likes it or not.

John Layman is the creator, writer and letterer of CHEW, the New York Times best-selling, Harvey Award and multi-Eisner Award winning cannibal cop comedy series from Image Comics. Layman was an editor for WildStorm Production and has written or lettered for every major publisher in comics for the last decade and a half.

**We love an excuse for enthusiastic super-fans to dress up, so if you wanna wear a costume we love it! We’ll also have prizes to give away for a Sci-Fit costume contest if there’s people dressed up! Any Sci-Fi cosplay/costume is fine not just Aliens**

Nerds Like Us is a monthly Friday midnight movie series made just for you… NERDS! We show the classic nerdy films of your golden days and beyond! See some of your favorite movies in a way you’ve never been able to experience them before, ON THE BIG SCREEN!!!

**Parking is street only. Make sure to read all signs and do not park in valet or paid parking lots, they WILL close at 2am. You may park at the VONS across the street but most park in the row furthest east and go in to be put on the manager’s list for Midnight Movie goers**

*Important request- we understand the nature of midnight films draws a more fun and fanatical crowd! We absolutely embrace this and we love when people sing-along with musical numbers or quote along with famous lines. Please, however, respect other theatre goers who are enjoying these films for the first time in decades on the screen and don’t have loud “living-room” style conversation in the theatre. Thanks, and enjoy the show!
