Vaughan & Chiang's "Paper Girls" Builds a Familiar Yet Disconcerting World
Start Time: 06:00PM End Time: 09:00PM
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.
"I miss the days when I could work the counter and talk comics with the people who came into the assorted Pegasus stores (TFAW's original name), and I look forward to seeing some old friends as well as meeting some new ones," said Dark Horse Comics and TFAW President Mike Richardson.
"Many customers have fond memories from when they could come into the store and see Mike behind the counter," said TFAW Vice President Andrew McIntire, with a smile. "We're thrilled to have Mike back in the store--maybe we can talk him into helping pitch books for new comic day!"
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!
