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.

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
