The Arcane Awakening &

What do comic books have to do with M.U.S.C.L.E. figures?

Very little.

But, the University of M.U.S.C.L.E. will be starting work on an original comic, in some form, very soon. Whether it will ever see the light of day is an entirely different question.

In the meantime the University of M.U.S.C.L.E. has partnered with Mess Bucket Comics to provide exclusive signed copies of The Arcane Awakening. Each copy of The Arcane Awakening is signed by the author (Dominic Riggio) and the artist (Jacob Crippen).

Not only are the books signed, but The School Store is offering FREE shipping and over 10% off the cover price!

The Epilogue from the week of July 29th featured a brief review of the book. If the review isn’t enough an endorsement, then perhaps the fact that the University of M.U.S.C.L.E. will lose money selling these books is a strong enough endorsement.

The Arcane Awakening is a book that deserves to be read. The University of M.U.S.C.L.E. believes M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors, and even the strange group of people known as “non-M.U.S.C.L.E. collectors, will enjoy reading it.

I knew that The Arcane Awakening was a good investment Smithers!

Plus there’s always the prospecting angle. What if The Arcane Awakening becomes the next big thing?

Then a signed first edition will be worth a pretty penny.

So be sure to pick-up a signed copy of The Arcane Awakening at The School Store for only $13 (and FREE shipping!).

    MUSCLE has little to do with comics?

    The figures were inspired by a comic series!

    Kinnikuman figures were inspired by the Kinnikuman comic book. M.U.S.C.L.E. figures were just copies of those figures.

    The only comic-related M.U.S.C.L.E. thing was the back of the 28-pack.

    Well you can also make your MUSCLE’s fight each other on top of my book. So we have that going for us…
