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

    DARK KNIGHT RETURNS THE GOLDEN CHILD #1

    (W) Frank Miller (A/CA) Rafael Grampá
    Frank Miller returns to the Dark Knight Universe!
    It’s been three years since the events of Dark Knight III: The Master Race. Lara has spent the time learning to be more human, and Carrie Kelley has been growing into her new role as Batwoman. But a terrifying evil has returned to Gotham City, and Lara and Carrie must team up to stop this growing threat-and they have a secret weapon. Young Jonathan Kent, “the golden child,” has a power inside of him unlike anything the world has ever seen, and it’s about to be unleashed…
    Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight and joining him is the superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking Mesmo Delivery. Following work in advertising and film, this incredible collaboration marks Grampá’s first comics work in six years, bringing his extraordinary detail and storytelling to the Dark Knight saga, resulting in a Dark Knight story like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

    After the events of the Jughead the Hunger vs. Vampironica crossover, Veronica returns to her own universe, still a vampire. She's not the same, and she knows it but she may not be ready for what she's about to discover!
