40 Years of Austin Books & Comics! – Week 8

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 if they could live in any comic location, what would it be.

Share your own 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!

Asgard
Asgard, it seems to me it would be pretty cool to live there amonst the Norse Gods and the more everyday Asgardians. They certainly know how to party and celebrate. You might even have access to the other realms, which would be good for vacationing. perhaps I could be the envoy or ambassador of Midgard.

-Daniel G.

Los Angeles
The City of Angels with Faith from Valiant!!

-Angelique M.

Gotham City
If I could live in a comic book location, it would be Gotham city!

-Edward M.

Kamar-Taj
Kamar-Taj, a cool place that opens the doors to so many other cool places.

-Shad R.

Earth-484
If I could be alive in any comic book location, I would choose DC’s Earth-484. I definitely choose Earth-484 because I everyone in the DC Universe is a Pirate! Image going on an epic adventure and then seeing a PIRATE JUSTICE LEAGUE!

-F.G.

Savage Land
The Savage Land in the Marvel Universe. Dinosaurs are always awesome.

-Christopher M.

TMNT Hideout
The New york of tmnt. Nothing like living with the amazing turtles in their sweet souped up sewer pad.

-Dwayne Y.

    1980s era Alan Moore Swamp Thing DCU Heaven. It’s quite nice there, you can hang out with your better friends for eternity.

    And best of all, if you want to go back to Earth we all know that DC characters never stay dead forever. Alec’s been back and forth a few times 🙂

    New Release Pick of the Week

    Once and Future #1

    ONCE & FUTURE #1 (OF 6)

    BOOM! Studios

    (W) Kieron Gillen (A/CA) Dan Mora

    When a group of Nationalists use an ancient artifact to bring a villain from Arthurian myth back from the dead to gain power, ex-monster hunter Bridgette McGuire escapes her retirement home and pulls her unsuspecting grandson Duncan, a museum curator, into a world of magic and mysticism to defeat a legendary threat.

    Bestselling writer Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + The Divine, Star Wars) and Russ Manning Award-winning artist Dan Mora (Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Klaus) explore the mysteries of the past, the complicated truths of our history and the power of family to save the day – especially if that family has secret bunkers of ancient weapons and decades of experience hunting the greatest monsters in Britain ‘s history!

    $3.99

    No new comics review today 😪 as comics are running late for the entirety of Southern Texas.

    We are expecting the delivery early Wednesday and will have them available as soon as possible! (Sadly we’ve had quite a bit of experience with this.)

    Stay tuned for the latest on either fb and Twitter.
