FIRST COMICS Coming To Austin Comic Con

First Comics, the legendary independent comic book company, is back with vengeance! The cutting edge publisher who brought us the first Japanese manga (Lone Wolf and Cub), the first comic drawn and lettered entirely on a computer (Shatter), the first graphic novel (Beowulf) and many other seminal titles, has relaunched full tilt with the same approach that brought them so much success the first time: “Take creative risks, find great entertainment, and publish it!”

Be part of the First Comics renaissance at Austin Comic Con, Booth Nos. 412 and 413!

First Comics is publishing brand new titles from the best and brightest comics stars as well as from the stars of the future, along with original new stories and remastered collections of some of its favorite classic characters, in a variety of formats (deluxe hardcover, softcover, floppy, etc.).
