Wolverine Origin HC

Wolverine Origin HC

MARVEL COMICS

(W) Paul Jenkins (A) Andy Kubert (CA) Joe Quesada

For decades, Wolverine’s shadowy past has been shrouded in mystery.

And now, in this landmark event, Marvel reveals all! The birth and childhood of sickly young James Howlett, the secrets and intrigue of his family history, the first struggle with his subconscious savagery that culminated in tragedy, and how James’ flight from everything he once knew led to the forging of the man known as Logan! Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert, two of Marvel’s most capably acclaimed creators, unite to tell the tale that shaped mutantdom’s mightiest misfit. Collecting ORIGIN #1-6.

Under Sinister’s direction, they are sure to become productive members of mutant society.

Anything from back issues, pull lists, games, toys, statues, or anything else within the walls of our shops or warehouse.

These are trying times. Everyone of you is near and dear to our hearts. We wouldn’t even be here without you.

The bad news is that it is looking like the city of Austin will be enacting a shelter in place order.
Here is what that will mean: we won’t be able to have customers in our shops or do curbside delivery.
BUT...
We will be able to send you orders through the USPS.

Hey everyone
It’s time for some good news and some bad news.
The good news is we will be getting this week’s books up and ready for sale tomorrow, Tuesday the 24th. We will be extending our hours at Austin Books until 10pm tomorrow so everyone will be able to grab what they need.
