Dark Horse Comics has announced a collaboration with Barnes and Noble Booksellers to celebrate the release of the upcoming Zelda art book, Art & Artifacts

At select store locations across the United States, fans of the Zelda series can take on a “quest” of sorts within the bookstore, journeying from location to location among the shelves and answering trivia questions along the way — guided by a map, of course! Those who are successful in their quest will be rewarded with an enamel pin and a photo opportunity.

  • 2/20  7pm Clackamas Town Center Mall, Portland, OR

    Oh look, there isn’t one anywhere near the Midwest. Ugh.

    • my booths

      I feel you. For the south, it can almost be guaranteed Texas get’s like three dates for things and then all other deep south states are skipped except Georgia lol

      • Vincent Nunnally

        We may as well just sell California to Japan at this rate. They get EVERYTHING.

  • Jacob Kolstad

    Dammit, another US-only event.

    • Sean Pazdera

      You’d be surprised at how many times we say that about Europe.

      • Jacob Kolstad

        Yeah, figures. Every time there’s an event on one of the continents, the playerbase on the other is bound to complain.

  • Joshua Millat

    Nothing in Ohio… gotta drive to NYC or Chi-town… NYC I guess…probably get shot in Chi-Town…

  • Ugh, I’m in a position of white people issues. I want to complain but really shouldn’t. I feel for you guys where it’s nowhere near… But I live in a part NY that isn’t New York NY. Everything exciting happens one inconvenient 4 hour ride from me, and they never like holding it anywhere else around New york because that is the location for everything forever. Is this pin worth the 4-5 hour commute through extremely dense streets? No, not really. but it would be nice if they’d stop dangling candy like this in front of me practically every month.

  • Hey

    Of course these things never happens in Europe Q_Q
