TFAW - Universal Citywalk
Things From Another World has been a fixture in Universal CityWalk since the early days, and we recently moved to another CityWalk location in order to continue to offer an even better selection of collectibles, graphic novels, and comics. Whether you're shopping for a unique souvenir from your vacation, or an L.A. native looking to find a cool, geeky item, we've got just the thing for your collection.
John Byrne's Superman #10. The first comic he ever read...it was the start of a love of comics that ranges from Savage Sword of Conan to Scott Pilgrim. Just as his taste in comics varies, so too do his other interests. He is a photographer, painter, writer, and collector (art, comics, statues, and toys). The best is when those interests collide--painting a statue, writing a comic, photographing toys. Nothing beats doing what you love.On Dustin's Pull List:
Thor, Saga, East of West, Star Wars
All Star Superman (THE greatest Superman story ever written), Fables, Usagi Yojimbo, Hellboy, John Buscema's Conan (the only thing better is R.E. Howard's)...oh and BLACKSAD!

Camillo started reading comics something like 20+ years ago. His local comic shop closed, so he watched the Spider-Man, and Batman Cartoons. Fast forward a few years, and he found some comic stores and was able to do some catching up and has been more consistent for the last decade.On Camillo's Pull List:
The Goon, Spider-Man, The Walking Dead, most Avengers titles, Black Widow, and whatever big event Marvel has going on.
I can not recommend The Goon enough. Then there are Fables, Y: The Last Man, Spider-Man: Blue, Planet Hulk, Supreme Power, The Dark Knight Returns. There are way too many to name, but these are the ones that come to mind.

Barbara was a noob when she first started working at TFAW, but thanks to her co-workers, she's learned a lot about comic books. Her father gave her an N64 when she was a kid (her favorite--Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time) so video games are definitely her specialty. She enjoys the diverse customers we meet everyday and is grateful to work in a place where she is surrounded by things that she loves.On Barbara's Pull List:
Chew, Batman 66' and ANYTHING Deadpool
Saga, Chew, Hellboy, The Goon, Batman: The Killing Joke, The Walking Dead, Serenity, Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Hystoria.
Allen started with computers games at an early age, and eventually that got him into cartoons, anime, comics, and manga in his childhood years. Horror movies also played a large role in shaping his interests and eventually he found himself reading creepier and darker comics as he aged. Still in love with the super heroes, horrific scenarios, and weird worlds he finds himself exploring other stranger stories and breathtaking art that he never imagined he would find, especially working at TFAW.
Old Man Logan, Low, Outcast, Doctor Fate, The October Faction, The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina, Harrow County, and Power-Up.
Venom by Remender is pretty amazing. The Trick 'r Treat comic book that followed the film is also cool with a new one coming in October. The 2015 Martian Manhunter series is cool and weird also! Warzones Spider Island is cheesy and like a horror movie in all the right places and I couldn't recommend enough. Scott Pilgrim is also great, especially if you love video games! Check out my pull list though, I always suggest just finding a cool cover, you never know what you might find!
Ashleigh has been a nerd since she can first remember. Her dad would let her stay up late watching old horror movies via Elvira, and Tales From the Crypt, and showed her all the best fantasy films of the 80's. Her love of horror and fantasy from a young age, lead her to Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Lord of the Rings, and any/everything similar she could get her hands on. A book worm since she could first read, she turned to comics when her beloved Buffy was canceled. Now an avid comic reader, she enjoys many series.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel and Faith, Gotham Academy, Jem, Beauty, Power Rangers, Pink Ranger, Wicked and the Divine, Doom Patrol and everything being released on Young Animal, Doctor Strange, and Harrow County.
Coffin Hill, Wytches, Disney Kingdoms, Dead Boy Detectives, Harrow County, Scott Pilgrim, Fables, Fairest, all the Buffy!
Megan was first introduced to comics at a young age with Sonic the Hedgehog. Growing up in the golden age of cartoons, the '90s, she was often glued to the TV watching shows like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Batman: The Animated Series, and Freakazoid! Cartoons have, and always will be, a huge passion of hers and it's what made her pack her bags and move from Michigan to California to pursue voice acting. She also happens to be a huge cosplay enthusiast. Working in an environment where she can be surrounded by the characters that she has grown up loving, and being encouraged to gush about them, makes every day enjoyable!

Dustin M.- Associate
The much younger version Dustin loved toys, which lead to Marvel's G.I. Joe #113, which led to picking up X-Men #3 way back in the '90s. From there it was an addiction. He may be one of the few people who stuck with NFL Super-Pro all the way to the end. He doesn't read just the comics, but everything about them, history and trivia and how everything connects and who created what and when.
