Press Release: TFAW

"Things From Another World cordially invites you to go to Hell. Meet Hellboy creator Mike Mignola at the Portland TFAW store December 15 from 7 to 10 p.m. for a Hellboy in Hell signing and gallery show celebrating Hellboy's return to comics--and Mignola's return to full interior art. The Eisner Award-winning artist and writer will also be displaying his original art in the store! This is an all-ages event; free food and beer (for those 21+) will be provided.

Mignola rocked comics fans worldwide when his signature
character, Hellboy, died in the summer of 2011. However, death can't keep the world's greatest paranormal investigator down: Hellboy in Hell follows his adventures in the afterlife and reveals shocking secrets fans have been dying to know. This is the first time Mignola has drawn Hellboy's ongoing story since Conqueror Worm in 2001!

Hellboy has been cast into Hell--why not join him? Follow his adventures in Hellboy in Hell and chat with the creator himself December 15 at the Portland TFAW. Copies of Dark Horse Comics' Hellboy in Hell #1, as well as a large selection of Mignola's comics and graphic novels, will be available for purchase."

Bridge City Comics is proud to announce our Number 13 #1 and RIPD #1 Release Party on Friday, December 21, 2012 from 6pm - 9pm! This event is free to the public. In attendance to sign autographs will be writers David Walker (Number 13) and Jeremy Barlow (RIPD). Copies of their books will be available for sale during the event.

NUMBER 13 #1
The young bionic amnesiac known as Number 13 searches for answers and his creator, in a future world that's been brought to its knees by the vicious Monstrum Morbus plague. Weakened by his last explosive encounter, Number 13 is discovered by a group of curious, scavenging mutants who have banded together for survival. They dub him "Thirteen" and invite him to join their group -- and one of them knows exactly what horrible purpose he was built for!

Roy Pulsipher and Nick Walker are dead, but that doesn't mean their time in law enforcement is over. Both Roy and Nick are officers in the Rest in Peace Department, sworn to serve the Almighty and protect the living from evil's foul corruption. Their current case has them chasing a ghostly fanatic determined to undo all of creation -- a threat with very personal connections to Roy's past, stretching back a hundred years into a weird, Wild West and Roy's first day on the job. It's a twisted history that Nick is only starting to uncover, and one that could have him reconsidering ever joining the R.I.P.D.! Prequel to the upcoming feature film starring Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges! "

12/06 - AmaZine Day - Zine Fest

Coming up:   Dec 12:   2:00pm until 6:00pm
1001 SE Division 
Portland, OR
"This December, give the gift of zines!

Help your loved ones discover their next favorite writer or artist, shop for yourself, and have a great time at AmaZine Day...

AmaZine Day is a new small press and zine fest taking place three times a year in the IPRC's expanded space! The Portland Zine symposium organizers teamed up with IPRC to create this unique, mini zine fest to balance out the rest of the year with chances for Portlanders to exhibit and share their zines! Celebrate zines and community with the
PZS organizers and the IPRC. Our goal is to take the edge off of waiting all year for PZS, especially since we keep filling up each year!

In addition to zines, we'll also have live music, food, beer provided by Ninkasi, sodas and pizza from Hot Lips, and yetis.

This will be a second-ever AmaZine Day and the Portland Zine Symposium organizers and the IPRC is really excited to present this mini zine fest again, after the success of the first one!

The event is FREE to attend, but you can also register for a little slice of table to sell and trade your zines for only $5! There are only 40 available spots and you'll need to fit your zines in a tabloid-size area (11 by 17 inches).

Sign up to table is in-person only at the IPRC. All proceeds will go to the IPRC and PZS. Space is very limited, register ASAP!"
