All-Ages Book Club I – Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur

The very first Austin Books all-ages book club, featuring Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur TPB 1: BFF. Children are encouraged, parents and guardians of all ages are welcome!

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Volume 1: BFF

MARVEL COMICS

(W) Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclare (A) Natacha Bustos (CA) Amy Reeder
Lunella Lafayette is a preteen genius who wants to change the world, but lives in fear of the Inhuman genes inside her! Now, Lunella’s life is turned upside down when a red-scaled beast is teleported from the prehistoric past to a far-flung future we call…today! Together they’re the most Marvelous Team-Up of all – Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur! But will they be BFFs forever, or just until DD’s dinner time? And Lunella soon learns that there are other problems with having a titanic T-Rex as a pet in the modern-day Marvel Universe. School, for one. Monster hunters are another – especially when they’re the Totally Awesome Hulk! Then there’s the fact that everyone’s favorite dino didn’t journey through time alone. Beware the prehistoric savages known as the Killer-Folk – New York City’s deadliest tourists!

Covering: Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur Volume 1: BFF (Amy Reeder, Brandon Montclare, and Natacha Bustos)

All Ages Book Club meets the last Sunday of every other month. Every one is welcome!

Guzu Gallery Presents

Spirit of ’77: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of Austin Books

Opening Reception: Friday, September 1, 7 PM – 10 PM

September 1, 2017 – October 10, 2017

Austin Books & Comics, Guzu Gallery’s favorite comic shop (and also their parent company and friendly next-door neighbors), has good reason to celebrate in 2017 — forty remarkable reasons to be exact. Central Texas’ largest and longest-running comics and pop culture retailer opened its doors in 1977, so this year they are celebrating their 40 year anniversary!

To mark the occasion, there will be a series of sales and events, including a pop culture art show event at Guzu Gallery — lasting the full forty days of Austin Books’ big 40 Day Sale.

Taking Austin Books’ birth year, 1977, as their inspiration, twenty-three talented artists will help pay tribute to the legendary comic book store via limited edition prints and original artwork. The opening reception will be on Friday, September 1st from 7 to 10pm and the artwork will remain up through October 10th. All artwork will be available for purchase. As always, admission is free and all ages are welcome!

Guzu Gallery welcomes everyone to the show, but if you can’t make it out, the artwork will be available for purchase in their online store on Wednesday, September 6th around Noon CST.
