Welcome to A Galaxy Called Dallas!


For 10 years A Galaxy Called Dallas has had a presence in the DFW area and specifically in the Garland area these last four years.

Begun in 2009 as a hobby blog, it eventually morphed into A Galaxy Called Dallas Comics located north of Downtown Garland, but has now closed.

We now return to our roots as a blog about the Geek Community in DFW but especially in the areas around Garland.

Alterna Comics and Where To Find Them



When A Galaxy Called Dallas was open for business, we proudly carried Alterna Comics. Great stories at a great price!


Alterna was founded by Peter Simeti in 2006 and is creator-owned. FUBAR Vol. 2 was #6 on the New York Times Best Selling Graphic Novel List in 2012 and in 2016 they released The Chair - a death row horror thriller. It is now streaming on Amazon Prime, Tubi, Itunes, and more.

Some stores have been reluctant to add them for many reasons, but you can find it at several DFW shops. Go to the Alterna Comics Store Directory and you'll see where to buy.

Oh, and I forgot the best thing. Alterna Comics are printed on newsprint just like back in the day. That means they smell great but most of all, they are inexpensive. With single issues ranging from $1.50 to $1.99 and trades from $9.95 to $14.95, you can't go wrong. But news came out just a few days ago to look out for 80+ pages for $4.99. Take that big boys!
