Floating World Comics reboot. It was like Flashpoint with ladders for about three days while we moved from one side of the Goldsmith building to the other. Now the dust has settled. Some of it is still there.
Recently voted “Favorite Comic Shop” in the 2011 Portland Mercury Reader’s Poll, we’ve expanded into a bigger and better location. Same building; we’ve moved just a block away to the corner of NW 4th and Couch (400 NW Couch St).
Grass Hut will be joining us and gaining a lot more square footage. Previously known as “the record store of comics stores” because of the way we sold books, we will finally be selling actual records. Paul Anson (from Discourage Records) is selling new and used vinyl as Landfill Rescue Unit.
To celebrate, we’re proud to host a book release party and art exhibit with multiple Eisner award winner, Matt Fraction. Casanova: Avaritia is the long anticipated third volume in Matt Fraction’s acclaimed creator owned series. The world’s sexiest and savviest superspy is back, killing his way from dimension to dimension in a high-stakes, action-packed adventure. The true identity of megasuperdupervillain NEWMAN XENO is now known to Casanova Quinn and E.M.P.I.R.E. – which means our man Casanova is now a pan-dimensional killer with one target hiding in an infinitely complex sprawl of realities.
TIMELINE UPDATE: Book signing with Matt Fraction rescheduled for Wednesday September 14th, 6-10pm.
Original art from the Casanova series by Gabriel Bá and Fabio Moon will be on display from Sept. 1st until Sept. 30th.
