PDXHunt 2018 Kick-Off! Saturday, July 21st 11:00 AM!

#PDXHunt is back again! Join us for a free, fun-filled day of exploring the geekier side of Portland.

Here's how the #PDXHunt works:

Participants can begin at our starting point, Cosmic Monkey Comics, to pick up their clue cards at 11:00 a.m. and enjoy free coffee and doughnuts.

Clue cards will have roughly 15 clues. Participants must include their public Twitter or Instagram account on the clue card — this is how we'll be able to track points. People can work in a group or solo, it doesn't matter as long as there's an account for us to track. (Please note: we cannot track Facebook accounts.)

Each clue is a stop somewhere in the Portland-area. Some stops require a specific task; some simply that you arrive. Each clue requires a photo to be taken of the place or action, which must be posted to the public Instagram or Twitter account with the hashtag #PDXHunt for us to see.

Completed clue cards can be dropped off at the final stop, Clinton St. Theater, before 7:00 p.m. on July 21, where will be hosting a free screening of a nerdy movie and giving away some random prizes. Final tallying for the main prizes will be completed in August and the winners notified.

Grand Prize: Two (2) RCCC 2018 Premium 3-Day Passes*

Runner-up: Play Fair All Access Family 4 Pack*

Random prizes: Friday Only single tickets (4), Sunday Only single tickets (4), 2018 RCCC T-shirt (2), free comics and graphic novels from Oni Press and Dark Horse Comics

*In the event of a tie, winners will be chosen at random.

Questions? Send us a private message on Facebook and we'll be happy to answer them.

#ImageComicsDay Wednesday February 1st, Steve Lieber signing noon-2PM

In honor of Image Comic’s 25th anniversary we’re celebrating on Wednesday February 1st, 2017. We will have some giveaways and creator signings that we should announce soon.

Steve Lieber (The Fix, Underground) will be signing noon-2pm

On February 1, 1992 seven comics superstars Erik Larsen, Jim Lee, Rob Liefeld, Todd McFarlane, Whilce Portacio, Marc Silvestri, and Jim Valentino came together to form their own company that would ultimately change the landscape of comics forever. Current partners McFarlane, Valentino, Kirkman, Larsen, and Silvestri collectively have brought creator-owned comics to the forefront of industry change and, after 25 years of amazing storytelling freedom, Image is pleased to celebrate the milestone anniversary with Image Day—Feb. 1, 2017. 

Image Comics wouldn’t have succeeded without the tremendous creativity and passion of its creators, the unwavering support of retailers, bookstores, and libraries, or the unbridled and unrelenting enthusiasm of the fans who show up each and every Wednesday to purchase Image titles. On Image Comics Day we celebrate together, nationwide, the exciting legacy that Image’s creator-owned publishing model has cultivated as we prepare for the next 25 years of amazing creator-owned comics to come.
