Austin boasts a veritable Justice Leagueful of fine shops devoted to four-color heroics and black-and-white drama: Big State, Dragon's Lair, Funny Papers, etc. But for a surreal spin with Sam Hurt's Eyebeam or a java jolt of Shannon Wheeler's Too Much Coffee Man, we head to Austin Books. Local artists have their own big rack, and we can be sure to find what's being drawn here, from the bigger imprints such as Adhesive and Discovery to the many mini-comics put out by most anyone with a pen. And the genial staff makes us feel like Austin's comics fans are as valuable as its artists.
