Free Comic Book Day (FCBD), the annual event in which participating comic shops give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores, returns Saturday, May 5, and Things From Another World is where you'll find all of the action! Doors open at 9 am at TFAW's Portland, Milwaukie, and Beaverton stores. Make sure to stop by for special free comics--while supplies last--as well as amazing signings, big savings, and more. The comics retailer will also offer free comics online at TFAW.com.

"Free Comic Book Day is an opportunity for us to reach out to the community and offer entertainment the entire family can enjoy--and afford," said TFAW Senior Director of Retail Operations Andrew McIntire. "This is a great event that we look forward to every year."

TFAW has an incredible slate of comic book creators signing at their Portland and Beaverton locations, including several artists from this year's official FCBD comics, like Ben Bates (Sonic the Hedgehog), Jonathan Case (The Guild), and Steve Lieber (Alabaster). Plus, meet Terry and Rachel Dodson (Uncanny X-Men), Emi Lenox (EmiTown), Amy Mebberson (Strawberry Shortcake), Jeff Parker (Hulk), Chris Samnee (Captain America & Bucky), and the Witch Doctor team, Brandon Seifert and Lukas Ketner!

May 5 also kicks off TFAW's astonishing Mega Sale, both in stores and online. Customers will save 50-70% on comics, graphic novels, toys, statues, and more. In stores, customers will also enjoy incredible savings on all back issues, including hundreds of issues new to each location.

As a special bonus, Stormtroopers and other Star Wars characters from Cloud City Garrison and Kashyyyk Base Rebel Legion will "patrol" at the Beaverton TFAW, while the pirates from PDX YAR will invade the Portland and Milwaukie locations--and demonstrate their sword-fighting skills. Get the complete schedule below, and see you May 5!
