40 Years of Austin Books & Comics – Week 14

Austin Books & Comics 40 Year Anniversary
2017 marks 40 years of your favorite local comic book store, Austin Books & Comics! In celebration of this, we’ll be having some new features over the next few weeks and months.

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

We recently asked, what superhero or villain has the best costume?

Share your own in the comments section below!

Check back next week for the start of an extra special new feature, and be sure to Like Us On Facebook for more 40th anniversary festivities!

Bucky as Captain America
Doctor Doom

Captain America is my favorite comic character, and Bucky as Cap was a fantastic twist on the classic design that combined the iconic elements of the character with his darker, assassin/spy background.

Doctor Doom, in addition to easily being Marvel’s greatest supervillain, has a great costume that shows off the magic, technological, and royal aspects of the character all in one amazing, iconic design.

Classic Wolverine
Always and forever, this Wolverine costume.

-Stephen P.

Uncanny X-Men Cyclops
The most recent Cyclops costume from Uncanny X-Men!

-Garrett E.


Hero: Spider-man. Villain: Deathstroke

-Darnell W.

Green Lantern Hal Jordan
Green Lantern John Stewart

Green Lanterns. Both John and Hal. Tie. Best villain: Galactus

    @AustinBooks mind giving a local creator a signal boost? My Kickstarter is at almost $15,000! Lots of unlocked stretch goals, and a killer guest pinup section! We just announced this piece by Jeff Smith today.


    Thanks so much! https://t.co/zrspQ0FeHM

    Our hope is that this could inspire other creators and publishers to do the same to help out other local comic shops https://t.co/qVSIz06GBr AustinBooks photo
