What are you thankful for in comics?


I’m thankful for the possible return of Cyclops, who, as we all know, was right.

-Nolan Buro

Thankful for the best comic shop I’ve stepped inside, run by a great team who keep all of this fun and interesting. Thankful for good runs on titles I follow, and new comics to try. And, of course, am constantly amazed to be living in an era when we get comics-based movies and TV that are actually well made. And, Krypto. Always thankful for Krypto.

-Ryan Steans

The temporary escape from reality. Comic books have saved me from insanity on many occasion. It’s amazing what a super hero can do for the “emotional you”

-Natasha Michelle

I’m thankful for comics giving me a love for reading, developing my reading and writing skills, directing me towards a career as a librarian, and providing me with characters that helped shaped the moral foundation that guides me to this day. ‘Nuff said!

-Peter A.

I’m just thankful for comics, period. ?

-Benjamin Blackwell

    @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.

    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
