Tonight, Marvel Comics is partnering with comics retailers across the country to celebrate 70 years of peddling funnybooks. Cosmic Monkey Comics (AKA one of the best bookstores in Portland) is hosting a party—there will be cake, and a 50% discount on all Marvel titles save this week's. Writer Jeff Parker and local comics power couple Colleen Coover and Paul Tobin will also be on hand. And so will Spider-man.

Cosmic Monkey Comics, 5335 NE Sandy, 9-11 pm

*and at the Barnes & Noble in Clackamas, but fuck that.
