It’s that time again – It’s been a hard year, but we’re all ready to meet up one last time this December and let out hair down. (Or put it up, it’s your hair!) Join us this month for snacks, games, and comic-type revelry!
As a special guest this Ladies’ Night, writer Janet Harvey for Angel City: A Town Without Pity will be here for a Q&A from 7-7:30! Make sure you bring your signed copy!
We are thrilled to welcome Ryan Cody, fantastic artist of Doc Unknown, to Austin Books & Comics! Come get the brand new complete release of Doc Unknown signed and chat with Ryan August 11th. We hope to see you here!

Superstar artist Joe Eisma (Archie, Morning Glories, Faith) will be at Austin Books & Comics on Wednesday, May 24th from 1-6 PM, signing copies of the brand new THE ARCHIES one-shot! Come by, get your issue signed, and talk to Joe about his work!
About the creator:
Joe Eisma is an artist and co-creator of the NY Times Bestselling and multiple Eisner Award Nominated series, Morning Glories, from Image Comics. He has also worked on Big Trouble in Little China, Evil Empire & Higher Earth from Boom! Studios, the revamped Archie ongoing series, and several issues of Valiant Comics’ Faith ongoing series.
About THE ARCHIES
Follow Archie’s quest to make his songwriting dreams a reality, and see what happens when the rock ‘n’ roll dream starts affecting his relationships with his closest friends. Join co-writers Alex Segura and Matthew Rosenberg (Archie Meets Ramones) and artist Joe Eisma (Archie) for a power-pop one-shot that goes loud on the music, fun and friendship.
The co-creator of recent smash-hit God Country is a fast-rising star in the comics industry. Stop in and get the new series debut signed before it also becomes a sold-out rarity. Cates is one of the most enthusiastic guests we’ve ever hosted, so be sure to ask him about his work!
The Bowmans are VAMPIRES who have quietly run the local barbecue joint in their small town for years, living off cow’s blood. Their peaceful coexistence ends as generations of hate, fear, and bad blood bubble to the surface–making it impossible to separate man from monster!
Critically acclaimed writer DONNY CATES (GOD COUNTRY) and artist LISANDRO ESTHERREN serve up the tale of a DIFFERENT kind of family just trying to get by, deep in the heart of Texas.
On Wednesday, March 29th, we will be joined by artist Val Mayerik and Jim Berry for a signing of their new hardcover graphic novel about the Battle of Little Big Horn, Of Dust and Blood. The graphic novel is not yet available to the direct market, so this is a wonderful opportunity to get it early, and get it signed by both the artist and writer!
About Of Dust and Blood:
OF DUST AND BLOOD: A Story from Custer’s Fight at The Greasy Grass, is an original graphic novel from writer Jim Berry and veteran illustrator Val Mayerik. The story details the day of The Battle At The Little Big Horn through the eyes of Greenhaw, a 7th Cavalry scout on one side of the battlefield, and Slowhawk, a young Lakota warrior on the other.
The book focuses on a compelling drama while also being as historically accurate as possible via quotes and documented actions on every page. There will be featured appearances by the famous protagonists of the day – G.A. Custer, Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse – but we’ve chosen to focus on two fictional characters, and use them as lenses to show what it might have been like on that hot afternoon in 1876 for two ordinary men pressed into battle.
We’re thrilled to announce artist Cliff Chiang will be dropping in for a signing at the end of April! There will be more details soon, but we wanted to get out word about this awesome event as soon as possible.
