The best origin? The Beyonder… it doesnt have origin, it doesnt have an end…

Batman

Batman


I still think Batman’s origin story, parents gunned down on the way home from the movies, is one of the best.

Brad reads?! Road trip bk 6; Snotgirl v1. I’ve been told this book wasn’t written for me and I agree, though I’m still intrigued. Fashion blogger. Severe allergies. Mystery medicine. Powers? This book sells great and I’m really interested in what happens next. I’ll grab v2. https://t.co/91EUqOnibC AustinBooks photo

Brad reads?! Book 5; Thor God of Thunder v1 by Jason Aaron & Esad Ribic. This reminded me of Thor comics when I was a kid, with a fresh threat to Odinson. Norse history, modern threats, really enjoyable. The only problem I have with this book is that I didn’t bring along book 2. https://t.co/0hzUB6efRn AustinBooks photo

Brad reads!? Road trip book 4; Manhattan Projects v1. Alternative history with parallel dimensions and an evil (redacted)? I’m in. Really enjoyed this volume by Jonathan Hickman and Austin’s own Nick Pitarra. Highly recommended for fans of speculative fiction, or kinetic art! https://t.co/vT4eomVYmo AustinBooks photo
