Thor Brings the Thunder to Austin Books & Comics

Local pop culture retailer teams with Marvel, SEGA® and Red Fly Studio to present Wii Thor: God of Thunder game launch party



Texas-based True Believers: we've got an event just for you! Austin Books & Comics presents the "Thor: God of Thunder" Wii video game launch party on Saturday, April 30, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., featuring original comic book characters Thor and Sif in the flesh!

SEGA and Austin game developer Red Fly Studio are teaming up with Austin Books & Comics to launch their new Wii game, "Thor: God of Thunder." Guests can attend this free video game launch party and try out an in-store demo of the "Thor: God of Thunder" game. Players will wield the iconic Mjolnir, Thor's legendary hammer, to fight across multiple Norse worlds, controlling elemental storm powers to overcome hordes of deadly foes with devastating lightning bolts, earthshaking thunder and mighty blasts of wind that sweep away throngs of enemies.

Austin Books & Comics is also hosting a Red Fly Studio "meet the developers" table, featuring key members of the game development team that created "Thor: God of Thunder" for the Wii. Red Fly Studio is well-known for their previously released titles "Mushroom Men: The Spore Wars," "Ghostbusters: The Video Game" and "Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II."

Chad Barron, producer on "Thor: God of Thunder" for Red Fly Studio, offers, "Red Fly Studio is already a big believer in supporting the local Austin community. By having the opportunity to launch our brand-new Wii game at Austin Books & Comics, we look forward to meeting more of our Austin fans, and providing enthusiastic support for the Thor franchise."

Guests can participate in the Thor costume contest, plus receive hourly giveaways of signed posters and special Thor premiums, including the new Wii game. Meet guest costume characters in person, Thor and his Norse girlfriend Sif, who will be on site in full costume for the duration of the event. There will be no charge to event guests for photos with the costume characters.
