None. This year’s event comics have been a series of duds. Nothing stands out like Siege, Secret Invasion, Civil War, Dark Reign, Fear Itself, House of M, Original Sin, Spider Island, Bruce Wayne: Fugitive, Contagion/Cataclysm/No Man’s Land, Final Crisis, Identity Crisis or Blackest Night. The only War of the Realms book I’ve seen that I really enjoyed was the Strikeforce: Land of the Giants book with Tom Taylor’s fantastic take on Spider-Man as a hero and as a part of the team. And his friendship with the Queen of the Pegasus. That book should’ve been two or three times longer.

Poll: What comic would you like to see adapted into a movie?

I would like to see a dedicated Valiant line-up of films. Bloodshot, Ninjak, X-0 Manowar, Harbinger. And then a two-parter crossover adaptation of Armor Hunters.

Poll: What comic would you like to see adapted into a TV series?


I would like to see another (and better) attempt at Mike Grell’s Jon Sable: Freelance.

-Peter A

Sandman

-Tristan Child

Young Avengers and Runaways. Runaways already exists obviously but Em (from ABC) discovered it existed as a Marvel Civil War event series in your shop a couple weeks ago. Seems like a cool evolution of a good existing series.

Poll: What is your all-time favorite storyline?

Messiah Complex/Second Coming of the X-Men years ago. It involved so many different xmen and factions and was a story of hope literally and figuratively.

Who is your favorite publisher and why?

Currently, my favorite publisher is :01 Second; they’ve been printing some great graphic novels of late.

-Peter A.

My favorite publisher is Image right now. They have been putting out some great stories and the variants have been limited to one or 2 for new issues. Road of Bones was a recent good read.

-David Ribeiro

Marvel by far because they have the best characters and the most relevant and interesting stories. I grew up primarily on X-Men and i still have a huge love for them.

Who is your favorite character and why?

Thor and FOR ONE REASON ONLY… He can out drink Wolverine lol.

-July

Spider-Man has always been my favorite character and not just because we share the same first name, but because when I was growing up I felt Parker’s personality was similar to my own: nerdish; shy; socially awkward. However, I wasn’t bitten by a radioactive spider, so I got to live vicariously through Spidey’s exploits and character-building adventures. All of which helped me become the father, husband, teacher/librarian, that I am today.

-Peter A.

Doctor Strange cuz magic is cool and he sports a sexier goatee than Tony Stark.

-Seanieboy

Harley Quinn but mainly for the batman animated series. I like to think I’m a huge collector of Harley. As for comics I have to go with the punisher. Even though I dont agree with how he handles things but by far my favorite comicbook character loving his war of the realms tie ins.

-Daniel Rios

Daredevil for sure. He is a tormented soul who continually struggles with the pursuit of good versus evil. He views justice as very clear cut in a very confused world of Hell’s Kitchen.

-Tim Rabroker

Captain America, because he’s the moral compass of the Marvel universe and represents the very best of us.

What is your favorite franchise?

The Fantastic Four. It’s got the excitement of an adventure series. It’s got the Crazy Comic Sci-Fi side of it. But most importantly, it’s got compelling characters. With a good writer behind the wheel, Fantastic Four is about as good as it gets.

What is your favorite thing about Austin Books & Comics?

Hands down the customer service! I’m very new to comics and I have alot of question. The amazing employees never hesitate to answer any of my ridiculous questions. So every Friday I’m there picking up my pull list. Depending who’s there I don’t even have to say my name anymore for the pull list. Felt VIP status

-Daniel Rios

I have been shopping at ABC for about 23 years and it has always been the staff. I enjoy chatting with them when I come in. Better yet it was fun getting to work with the folks there for a short while. From Brad and Mark Finn back in the day all the way to today with Ty, Brandon and Trevor ABC would not be a success with them all.

-Greg Trosclair

The diverse, friendly and knowledgable staff! Everyone is so kind to me and makes me feel like part of the family.

-Brian Spaulding

The staff actually cares about what the customer wants and goes out of their way to make sure you’re happy with your purchase. With me it’s all about condition, condition, condition! Yes I’m very happy to call Austin Books & Comics my to go store for all my comics and supplies. Staff is awesome!
