You’ve probably been wondering what happens when a couple of Brick Store and Leon’s vets make you a new bar with a huge beer list and an also-huge patio...

Comic books happen.

Apparently comic books happen.

Down we go to My Parents’ Basement, the random yet glorious merger between a comic book shop and a well-stocked beer bar, opening Wednesday in Avondale Estates.

Your slideshow. And your menu.
