Chris Roberson and Georgia Roberson sign at TFAW on Saturday, June 23rd, 2012 from 1:00PM – 3:00PM.
Boom! Studios’ Adventure Time comics have been a huge hit, selling out nationwide, and Things From Another World (TFAW) is excited to host a signing at their Portland location this Saturday from 1 to 3 p.m., featuring Chris Roberson (Memorial, I, Zombie) and his Adventure Time co-writer, his eight-year-old-daughter Georgia! Come out to pick up your copy of Adventure Time #5 and get it signed. Free soda and juice provided.
“Chris isn’t just an excellent comics writer, but he’s one of our favorite people,” said TFAW Senior Director of Retail Operations Andrew McIntire. “When we heard he and his family were moving to Portland, we wanted to be the first comic shop to welcome them to their new home, and we’re excited to host this signing for Chris and Georgia.”
The Adventure Time comics are based on Cartoon Network’s insanely popular animated show! The series follows the adventures of Finn, a 14-year old boy in the Land of Oo whose best friend is Jake, a dog with magical powers such as growing and shrinking or stretching into many shapes. Finn is a silly kid who wants to become a great hero one day. He might not look too tough, but if there’s evil around, he’ll slay it!
“When we created our new store, one of our top priorities was making it kid-friendly,” said McIntire. “We invite families to come out, meet Chris and Georgia, and check out our kids’ play area and expanded all-ages section.”
Chris Roberson is a critically acclaimed writer who’s written for a wide range of comics, including Cinderella: Fables Are Forever, Star Trek/Legion of Superheroes, and his creator-owned title, Memorial. He collaborated with his daughter, Georgia, on a hilarious tale in Adventure Time #5–make sure to stop by the Portland TFAW June 23 to get your copy!

Sam Humphries signs at Third Eye Comics on Saturday May 12, 2012 at 11:ooam.
SAM HUMPHRIES WILL BE SIGNING 11AM-1PM
FIRST 15 IN LINE GET A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT!
Meet one of this year’s hottest new comic writers at THIRD EYE COMICS in ANNAPOLIS in MAY!
GET THE EXCLUSIVE THIRD EYE COMICS Variant of HIGHER EARTH #1!
Last year, writer SAM HUMPHRIES, took the world of comics by storm with his completely self-published and self-distributed indie gem SACRIFICE. We were pumped to offer that very limited, exclusive title to you guys then, and have been keeping an eye on Sam’s future projects ever since. Now, six months later, Sam is co-writing THE ULTIMATES with Jonathan Hickman, delivering a ground-breaking take on JOHN CARTER OF MARS, feeding Fanboys to Zombies in FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES, and unleashing his biggest project of the summer: HIGHER EARTH.
We’re honored to say that Sam has made Third Eye Comics his official launch site for HIGHER EARTH #1, and in collabortion with him and BOOM! Studios, we’ll be flying Sam in for a special signing. We’re also going to be offering a very special THIRD EYE COMICS-exclusive variant cover of HIGHER EARTH #1 at this event, which (if judging by Sam’s past hits) is guaranteed to be one of the hottest variants of the Summer.
What’s HIGHER EARTH? When I first heard the concept of HIGHER EARTH, I knew that this was a book that was going to be big. A sci-fi fantasy epic that follows in the same vein as Brian K. Vaughan’s SAGA, delivering believable characters in an unbelievable world, HIGHER EARTH is incredible.
You know that Final Frontier we’re always seeking in most science fiction? Well, mankind found it.. and it sucks. A desolate wasteland.
So, instead of searching space, mankind sets it’s sight on exploring, and conquering new territory: alternate Earths.
Higher Earth follows the adventures of Heidi, a girl born in garbage, and Rex, a soldier gone rogue, as they look to bridge the gap between their destiny and them… but that gap consists of an empire of a hundred different Earths, across a hundred alternate timelines.
And, at the top? HIGHER EARTH. Only the most elite and powerful are allowed here.
Folks, we LOVE this one, as it has everything that makes a good down-to-Earth sci-fi story good: strong characters, good dialogue, great artwork, and big ideas. Just like FIREFLY/SERENITY, or BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, there’s a very cool relevance of HIGHER EARTH to the here and now, and that makes great sci-fi.
Welcome to the future. Space is dead. Welcome to Higher Earth.
HIGHER EARTH #1 releases in-store on Wednesday 5/9/12, and Sam Humphries (writer of SACRIFICE, ULTIMATES, OUR LOVE IS REAL) will be in-store on Saturday 5/12/12.
In collaboration with BOOM!, we’re having a special THIRD EYE COMICS variant of HIGHER EARTH put together, which will be available for sale at the Launch party event.
