Welcome to the Austin Books & Comics New Reader Guide! We’re here to introduce some of our favorite books that you may not already know about, and maybe even help you find your next favorite comic series!

Marvel Cosmic

Starting with 2006’s sadly out of print Annihilation event series, and especially since 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy film, the cosmic part of the Marvel universe has been at the forefront of the Marvel universe. Mostly set apart from the events of the other Marvel titles, the cosmic titles offer action, adventure, and thrills like nothing else in comics today.

In this guide you’ll find a collection of Marvel’s recent cosmic titles.

All titles are available at the store, and if not we will be happy to special order them for you!

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel (2014)

The character-defining run that saw B-lister Ms. Marvel become Earth’s Mightiest Hero, Captain Marvel! Kelly Sue DeConnick’s now iconic run saw Carol Danvers soar to new heights as she finds adventure all over the cosmos, including saving a planet from evil slavers, falling backwards through time, and discovering that her cat Chewie may not be as regular as she thinks. Read the renaissance of one of Marvel’s greatest heroes with this series.

Number of volumes: 5

Drax

Drax

What does Drax do when he’s not having adventures with the Guardians of the Galaxy? Seek out bloody revenge against Thanos, of course! This series is wall-to-wall action as Drax blasts and fights his way through the seedy backwaters of the galaxy in his quest to put a violent end to the Mad Titan. Along the way he may just end up helping out those in need, including a shipful of kidnapped royal children and fighting Fin Fang Foom.

But as the Serpent’s mystical hammers transform friend and foe alike into unstoppable agents of destruction, as terror takes hold and the Serpent’s power grows, as Odin prepares to burn the Earth to cinders to save his people – it’s not these sacrifices the Avengers fear. It’s the knowledge that no matter what price they pay, this battle may be unwinnable. Heroes will fall, gods will die, and fear will rule the day – as the hammer falls!
