40 Years of Austin Books & Comics – Week 12

Austin Books & Comics 40 Year Anniversary
Can you believe it? On September 1st of this year, we’ll have been helping you (and some of your parents and grandparents) discover your favorite comics for FORTY YEARS!

We have lots of fun stuff planned throughout the year, so keep an eye out for our ongoing celebration!

This month’s question:

WHAT HERO (or villain) HAS THE BEST COSTUME?

Batman and his cowl? Superman with his cape? Colors, composition, utility? What makes the best costume in comics?

Share your answer in the Facebook comments for a chance to win a $40 Gift Card to ABC/Guzu/Sidekick/Outlaw Moon, as well as being featured in a future post!

Have a question? Click here to send a message and we'll get back to you shortly!

  • James Olsen says:

    I think Nightwing’s black and blue costume from the 90s is the best for a few reasons. First, it just makes sense. Being an acrobat, it makes sense for Dick Grayson to choose a costume without a utility belt and a cape. He has to keep his suit light so he can move the way he wants. It’s not overly colorful like so many other costumes in the Bat-Family. Gotta stay stealthy, right? I like how the symbol on the costume extends to his arms and isn’t a literal bird (something they messed up for DC Rebirth). It’s just brilliant in its simplicity. It seems like a natural bridge between Robin’s costume and Batman’s.
