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.

On our Facebook page, we asked fans and employees to share their all-time favorite comic storylines.

Share your own stories in the comments section below!

Check back next week for more new features, and be sure to Like Us On Facebook for more 40th anniversary festivities!

Spider-Man: Kraven's Last Hunt
Kraven’s Last hunt, as previously mentioned, is by far my favorite. So much depth and insanity.
“They said my mother was insane.”

-Joel P.

Camelot 3000
The reimagining of Arthurian legends in a future setting was handled beautifully. That has stuck with me for many years.

-Kirk L.

Millie the Model
My cousin gave me Millie the Model comic books. I alwayse played with the paperdolls and designed clothes for her. They will always be my favorite.

-Jane K.

Usagi Yojimbo
Usagi Yojimbo’s Dragon Bellow Conspiracy arc. it has the right combination of historical detail and intrigue combined with action. imagine an Akira Kurosawa movie but with fuzzy animals.

-Mark R.

Transmetropolitan Vol 3
Transmetropolitan: Year of the Bastard from Warren Ellis’ Transmetropolitan #13-18. I read this every four years, so I am in the proper mindset for voting. Every election I’m older, and every election, this series and this storyline speaks to me more and rings truer every. damned. time.

-Tony S.

Star Wars: Tag and Bink Are Dead
Tag and Bink Are Dead was so much fun. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead in the Star Wars universe.

-Kris K.

@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
