“It came from another world in 1979!”

After incorporating in 1979, Mike Richardson opened the first Things From Another World store--just 400 square feet--in Bend, Oregon on January 1, 1980. We were brought into this world with a $2,500-limit credit card and a dream: to sell a wide range of comics and offer excellent customer service to our customers. We were also born with another name, Pegasus Books, but decided Things From Another World was more our style in the '90s (we were considering a symbol, a la Prince, but we were talked out of it).  Today, we're the third-largest comic book retailer in the nation, but our purpose remains the same: to have an outstanding selection of comic books, graphic novels, toys, statues, and other pop culture-related goodness, and to take special care of our customers.

Owned by the people behind Dark Horse Comics (the creators of titles like Hellboy), Things from Another World has everything a comic book lover wants in a comic book store... and by that I mean comics, and comic paraphernalia by the load. Because my wife is a big Buffy fan (published by Dark Horse) we still have our comics mailed from TFAW even after having left Portland. A great stop for the comic lover, both young and old.

Great local comic book store that really stands out among all the other great comic shops in Portland. They also have a great mailorder business and comics always arrive on time and in great condition.
