BEFORE WATCHMEN: SILK SPECTRE #1 DROPS THIS WEDNESDAY, AND IT IS… AMAZING. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS ONE! AN INCREDIBLE READ!

THESE ARE AMAZING COMICS. MINUTEMEN blew my MIND last week, and this week’s SILK SPECTRE is guaranteed to be the critical breakout hit of the BEFORE WATCHMEN line.

The creators that are working on these are coming from the same exact place that you and I are: a true passion for this world, and the characters within it.

Last week, I was wowed by Darwyn Cooke’s MINUTEMEN, this week, I am utterly stunned with how much I enjoyed Amanda Conner’s SILK SPECTRE.

First off: I love her art. She’s killer. Plain and simple. Secondly: the story on this one is AMAZING. A real stand-out read.

As we’re shown the formative events that made both Silk Spectre, and her mother, the original Silk Spectre into who they were in the original WATCHMEN series, this series really tells a dark, yet complex story that leaves you with your heart on the floor.

Too freakin’ good.

Wanna get caught up with BEFORE WATCHMEN? We’ve still got copies of last week’s BEFORE WATCHMEN MINUTEMEN in stock and available now to get you up to speed.

THE ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN and THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN MEET FOR THE FIRST TIME AS THE REGULAR MARVEL UNIVERSES CROSSES OVER WITH THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!

Featuring a very special cover with the 

Third Eye Comics logo!

This week marks the very special release of SPIDER-MEN #1, which is set to be one of the biggest Marvel titles of the Summer, for sure.

 

With the high quality runs that BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS and DAN SLOTT have had on both ULTIMATE SPIDERMAN and AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, we are totally stoked to see two of our favorite characters right now cross paths.

 

Also, this is the historic first crossing over of the ULTIMATE UNIVERSE and regular MARVEL 616 UNIVERSE… and no, ULTIMATE POWER doesn’t count. ;)

 

Spider-Men is a big book, folks, with an amazing creative team of BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (Writer of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN) and SARA PICHELLI (artist of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN) handling the creative chores, and bringing us this ass-kicker of a read.

 

This series kicks off from the point of view of Parker, and it really is a joy to see Bendis writing 616-continuity Amazing Spider-man again, because he does it so well.

 

But, what’s even better is the stellar interplay he pulls off between Peter and Miles (the Ultimate Spider-Man).
We don’t want to give away the plot points, or the situation, but we can tell you this: it really is a unique situation for both Peter Parker and Miles Morales, and it makes for one of the best damn reads we’ve had in a while.
The character of Morales has been one of the most likable, and compelling additions to Marvel’s roster this year, and we are really stoked to see where they take things next with him.
Spider-Men is set to be one of the best books of the Summer, in terms of just sheer quality alone, it destroys, and we really cannot wait for issue #2 now.
Wanna jump on board? You can hop on fresh with SPIDER-MEN #1 this Wednesday, and don’t forget: we’ve got a very special THIRD EYE COMICS exclusive variant of the book that is only available in our stores!

THE BOYS VOL.11 OVER THE HILL WITH THE SWORDS OF A THOUSAND TRADE PAPERBACK ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY
THE PENULTIMATE COLLECTION OF ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SERIES ARRIVES!
Not reading THE BOYS? Try volume 1 and find out why we love it so much!
You know, with trade paperbacks, we know you guys often wait and avoid the spoilers, so we’re going to try to avoid going into too much detail about what actually goes down in BOYS VOL.11.

 

Instead, we’re going to talk about WHY those of you not yet reading THE BOYS need to get into this amazing series, which can be caught up on pretty easily in graphic novel format.

 

THE BOYS is a very dark, very harrowing look at the world of superheroes from Third Eye favorite writer GARTH ENNIS, and TRANSMETROPOLITAN artist Derick Robertson.

 

This, is, in our opinion, our favorite thing that Garth Ennis has kicked out the jams on since his now-classic PREACHER series, and has kept us hooked for nearly 6 years now.

 

What’s it about? The Boys is set in a world where superheroes are complete, and total jerks. Mad with power, depraved, and with no respect for anyone, THE BOYS is a graphic, gritty, and ultra-violent spin on the classic superhero arch-types that will drag you deep into the dark depths of the superhero psyche.

 

But, wait there’s more: THE BOYS focuses on a group of men and women who work for the U.S government. Their mission? To police the super-police. These individuals have all had their lives destroyed in the crossfire of superhero battles, and with nothing left to lose, are the watchdogs that the government uses to keep it’s privately contracted defenders from going overboard.

 

The main focus is on a character named Hughie, who is reminiscent of Simon Pegg from SHAUN OF THE DEAD, who at the very beginning of the story sees his fiancé killed in the crossfire of a superhero fight; due to the speedster hero’s negligence.

 

From there, Hughie is brought into the BOYS, and that’s where the story begins.

 

Folks: the books are great, I can’t stress it enough. You will be glad you got on board with this, TRUST US.

 

Pop by, snag volume 1, and find out why we love the series so much.

IDW, publishers of TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, GODZILLA, LOCKE & KEY, THE ROCKETEER & deliver a comic that’s HOTTER THAN HELL with the new KISS ONGOING SERIES!
Okay, folks, I think that it’s part of the very fabric of a comic book fan’s DNA to appreciate KISS. I mean, c’mon, these guys are essentially a band of superheroes. And, while I may not be the most hardcore KISS fan at Third Eye (that blessing falls upon our store manager at Annapolis, TORMA), I will say this: I have bought DESTROYER on vinyl about 3 different times, ’cause I can’t stop playing that record out.

 

This Wednesday, marks the debut of the brand new KISS ongoing series from IDW Publishing, and the return of the Kiss Army to comic books. And, folks, with how fantastic IDW has been with handling their licensed books these days, we really feel they’re going to hit a home-run with this series.

 

With a fresh, edge storyline that captures the bigger-than-life madness of KISS, this new ongoing series starts with four individuals in the 1920s who find themselves chosen as avatars of a higher purpose.

 

And, you know… it’s a KISS comic with them dressed as gangsters on the cover, I mean, how can you NOT add this to your collection?

BATMAN #10 – THE NIGHT OF OWLS  NEARS IT’S CONCLUSION WITH THIS PENULTIMATE CHAPTER, AND WELL: THINGS JUST GOT REAL!

BATMAN #10 delivers more of that SCOTT SNYDER and GREG CAPULLO awesomeness that has us coming back again and again for more.
This week marks the penultimate chapter of NIGHT OF THE OWLS, as the massive crossover nears it’s conclusion, and BATMAN decides to start breaking the Talons down piece by piece by piece.
Now, primed for battle, and properly prepared… Batman takes the fight directly to the COURT OF OWLS, and the evil mastermind behind the Court is revealed.
Yes, folks: the Court’s leadership is REVEALED! :)
Plus, we see more exploration of the history of the Wayne family and their connection to the Court of Owls.
All I can say about Snyder and Capullo’s BATMAN run is that this has been one of the BEST reads on the stands, and we really cannot get enough of the series.
Each month, there’s always that one book we’re looking forward to the most, and to be honest: BATMAN has been filling that slot for most of this year, as it’s gotten better and better.
We highly recommend going back to the very beginning, starting with BATMAN #1, and catching up to this week’s #10.
Or, snag the first hardcover, collecting BATMAN 1-7, and catch up with 8-10 this week.
Just trust us though: you will be so stoked you did. Comic book gold here, folks.
Wanna get on board? We’ve got BATMAN #1-#10 in stock and available now to catch you up to current, and we also have the BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS hardcover in stock now to get you up to speed.

 AVENGERS ASSEMBLE #4 – THANOS THANOS THANOS! BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS (the writer of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN / AVENGERS VS X-MEN) delivers this AMAZING in-continuity 616 Marvel U title that re-introduces THANOS!
Saw the AVENGERS? Stayed after the credits? Want to know more? GET AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!

So, we all saw AVENGERS, and lets face it: it was INCREEEDDDDIIIIIBLE. And, I think it’s now OK for us to talk about THANOS.
Yes, after the credits of AVENGERS, the Mad Titan, is revealed, and wow, we cannot wait to see what they do with him in the future films.
So, what’s the deal then with AVENGERS ASSEMBLE? This series launched a few months back, and at first, we weren’t sure what to make of it. It was obviously reflective of the AVENGERS movie, with it’s team roster of THOR, CAP, HULK, HAWKEYE, BLACK WIDOW, and IRON MAN… but: it also fit into the regular Marvel continuity somehow.
And, then, we read issue #3: and our minds were blown. At the very end of AVENGERS ASSEMBLE #3, Thanos makes his return and presence known, and now, well, Marvel: we see what you did there.
AVENGERS ASSEMBLE is a very interesting way of taking the regular Marvel continuity, and using it to reflect what is happening in the continuity of the Marvel movies.
You could almost say that this is kind of an unofficial bridge, or inspiration for where they’re going to be taking the next film.
Either way: it’s a great read, with great art, and freakin’ THANOS.
How can you go wrong?
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got issues 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to this Wednesday’s #4!

PLANETOID #1 DROPS FROM IMAGE COMICS THIS WEDNESDAY DELIVERING ANOTHER KILLER DEBUT FROM OUR FAVORITE PUBLISHER IN 2012!
PLANETOID, Third Eye Faithful, is a MUST-READ new series from IMAGE that’ll be debuting this week, and we REALLY stress: PICK THIS ONE UP. It’s FREAKIN’ great, and I’m telling you right now: it’s under a lot of folks radar, and you know what that means with IMAGE #1s, right? :)
Seriously though, the book is amazing, and delivers a steampunky sci-fi epic that has us hooked.
What IS Planetoid? Meet Silas, Silas is an ex-soldier turned space pirate, who finds himself stranded on a mysterious planet in alien territory. As he explores the long-abandoned industrial ruins of the planet’s surface he will have to fend off rogue mechanical creatures, roving cyborg militias, and a hostile alien military with a bounty on his head.
With a small survival kit, Richter (a computerized assistant built into his space suit), and one really powerful gun, Silas will have to rely on resourcefulness and bare-bones survival tactics in order to stay alive and ultimate unlock the secrets of a planet where survival is a luxury and escape an impossibility.
Fantastic artwork, and an amazing story, PLANETOID delivers the kind of comic that we LOVE from IMAGE, with it’s fresh and unique art-style (very reminiscent of PROPHET, and the great sci-fi eurocomics from HUMANOIDS), and it’s stunning story…. DO NOT SLEEP ON THIS BOOK! Seriously, you will be stoked you got on board this great new series!

TRANSFORMERS: MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE VOLUME 1 TRADE PAPERBACK DROPS THIS WEDNESDAY, DELIVERING FIRST 5 ISSUES OF THE ULTIMATE TRANSFORMERS SAGA! 
IDW has been straight up killing it this year with all their fantastic licensed titles, and their world of TRANSFORMERS has been one of the real highlights ever since the killer DEATH OF OPTIMUS PRIME story arc. Who’d have thought killing off OPTIMUS PRIME could be one of the best things they’ve done? :)
But, seriously, this is great. MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE brings us the stellar creative team of LAST STAND OF THE WRECKERS, and sends the Transformers on an epic quest to the farthest reaches of the Transformers universe, and beyond.
This trade collects the first full story arc, and the one-shot that started it all: the DEATH OF OPTIMUS PRIME!

DEATHSTROKE #10 – THE NEW 52 INTRODUCTION OF LOBO CONTINUES, AS THE TERMINATOR HUNTS THE MOST OBNOXIOUS BOUNTY HUNTING ALIEN ALIVE!
I don’t know why, but, man, I am stoked on the NEW 52 spin of LOBO. Liefeld is a perfect fit to bring his unique art style to both DEATHSTROKE and LOBO, as he perfectly captures the over-the-top, ultra-violent, in-your-face awesomeness of both characters.
Wanna hop on board this story arc? Start with last month’s DEATHSTROKE #9 (in stock now at Third Eye), and snag this Wednesday’s #10 to get caught up to speed. Trust us, Third Eye Faithful, if you were a fan of either Deathstroke or Lobo back in the day, you will DIG THIS.

AVENGERS VS X-MEN: VERSUS #3 DELIVERS IT’S THIRD ISSUE, AND FEATURES SHOWDOWNS BETWEEN BLACK WIDOW & MAGICK, and COLOSSUS and THE THING!
AVX: VERSUS has been our favorite of the AVENGERS VS X-MEN tie-ins, no doubt. This is literally: THE FIGHT BOOK, and I mean, c’mon: what do we love as comic fans? Seeing our favorite heroes beat THE HELL out of each other.
This comic is LITERALLY a MARVEL VS CAPCOM game in the form of a comic, I mean, it is RIDICULOUS and we are loving every freakin’ second of it.
So, how does this VERSUS thing work? Basically, each issue of VERSUS takes place in between issues of the main AVENGERS VS X-MEN series.
So, AVX VERSUS #1 is in between AVX #2 & #3, AVX VERSUS #2 is in between AVVX #3 & #4, and AVX VERSUS #3 is between AVX #5 and 6.
And, folks, this kicks ass, I mean, you get all-star talents like ED MCGUINNESS and TERRY DODSON illustrating HUGE, EPIC battles between these characters. And, yes, a winner is decided for each and every single fight.
Trust us: you’ll love it.

THE MASSIVE #1 DEBUTS FROM BRIAN WOOD, THE WRITER OF DMZ, NORTHLANDERS, DEMO, AND MORE!
THE MASSIVE is one of our most highly anticipated new series of the Summer. Why? Well, the big reason is this: BRIAN WOOD. Seriously, the man can write, ya know? His work on books like DMZ, DEMO, NORTHLANDERS, LOCAL, and many more had hooked us in a  big way in the past, and now, with THE MASSIVE, he’s really kicking out the jams.
So, what is it that makes this book so damn cool? It’s a post-apocalyptic story that brings something new to the table. There’s lots of end-of-the-world fiction out there, but this, well, this is SPECIAL. This is unique, and this is fresh, and hot dammit, Brian Wood really makes this one an essential part of that stack you’re taking home this week.
THE MASSIVE is set in a post-war, post-crash, post-disaster, post-everything world, the environmental-action trawler KAPITAL scours the Earth’s oceans for its mysteriously missing sistership, THE MASSIVE. Captain Callum Israel, a man who has dedicated his life to the ocean, now must ask himself — as our planet dies — what it means to be an environmentalist after the world has ended.
Callum and his crew will come up against pirates, rebels, murderers, and thieves as they struggle to remain noble toward their cause.
Can you save a planet that’s already doomed?
Whether you were a prior fan of Brian Wood’s stellar runs on DMZ and other books, or if you’ve never read the man’s work before, give this a shot, find out why we make such a big deal out of his new projects.
Trust us: YOU WILL LOVE IT!

MIND THE GAP #2 – THE HIT NEW IMAGE SERIES CONTINUES! A MUST-READ FOR FANS OF “MORNING GLORIES”! THIS BOOK IS INCREDIBLE!
The awesomeness that is MIND THE GAP is almost indescribable, as this story is wrapped in so many layers, and so much awesomeness that it is hard to put into words what we love the most about it.
This series knocked us on our feet last month with it’s debut issue, and the stunning artwork that accompanied the compelling mystery-driven storyline.
For those of you who may not know, the art on the interior? It totally matches the covers, and yes, it’s the very talented Rodin Esquejo handling the art chores, the same cover artist as MORNING GLORIES.
Toss in an amazing story by Jim McCann that will knock you off your feet with stellar cliffhangers, and killer character development, MIND THE GAP is amazing.
The three issues from issue #1 are answered here, leading to even more questions surrounding the attack on Elle Peterssen.
A new person is introduced, but are they friend or foe? And Elle quickly finds that the situation she is in has rapidly gone from a 10 to 10,000.
What’s the scoop on MIND THE GAP? In issue #1, we’re starting the story with our protagonist, Elle, getting assaulted on a subway platform, and being put into a coma. No one knows who did it, everyone is a suspect, and along the way we’re introduced to a very compelling crew of characters.
Along the way, we learn that Elle has drifted into a waiting room for those who are comatose, a kind of otherworldly purgatory where they’re left to drift aimlessly, until they either pass away or wake up from their coma.
And, there’s a lot of mysterious individuals who are trapped there.
Folks: I cannot tell you enough, this series is AMAZING, and you need to give it a shot. The artwork is out of this world, the dialogue is great, the characters are compelling, and it’s just a fantastic read through and through.
Plus: this book reads like it would make an amazing series on AMC, or HBO, and well, you know what happened when THIEF OF THIEVES caught the studios’s attention, right? :)
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got first printings of issue #1 in stock and available now, to get you up to speed.

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #687 *ENDS OF THE EARTH CHAPTER 6* - THE ENDS OF THE EARTH story arc concludes this Wednesday, paving the way for the upcoming LIZARD storyline!
Folks, I am telling you, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is the best it has been in YEARS, maybe even DECADES. This book continues to impress, and impress, and impress, with stunning story lines that leave you wanting more.
Dan Slott joined the title at issue #648, with the BIG TIME arc, and ever since, we have seen AMAZING SPIDER-MAN quietly turn into one of the best 5 Marvel titles on the stands.
It didn’t skyrocket to success overnight, and it’s still very much under-the-radar, but this book delivers the GOODS. In terms of just sheer quality reads, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN is top notch, through and through.
With the current ENDS OF THE EARTH story arc, Slott has really hit his stride, as he brings us the ULTIMATE in SINISTER SIX story lines… and, Doc Ock, well Doc Ock wants to kill EVERYBODY.
But, what is all this about Doc Ock having a NEW Sinister Six… who just happen to resemble the Earth’s Mightiest Heroes?
Curious, and curiouser, right?
What will the fallout from this one cause, and how will this lead into the upcoming LIZARD story arc that begins in this month’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #688!
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #682 *CHAPTER 1* all the way up to this week’s AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #687 to get you on board!

GREEN LANTERN #10 – THE SECRETS OF THE INDIGO TRIBE REVEALED!
The GREEN LANTERN title has been a consistently killer read in the NEW 52, and we just cannot get enough of how rad GEOFF JOHNS and DOUG MAHNKE have been keeping this book.
For almost a decade now, GEOFF JOHNS has been the VOICE of the GREEN LANTERN title, and he’s been steady crafting a mythology since the very beginning of his run in GREEN LANTERN REBIRTH.
Now, with the NEW 52, Johns continues to build on that rich tapestry of mythology, and he’s giving us a story arc that we’ve been waiting for since the very conclusion of BLACKEST NIGHT…
THE SECRET OF THE INDIGO TRIBE! We’ve learned much about the RED LANTERNS, THE ORANGE LANTERN(s?), THE YELLOW LANTERNS, and more, but, the INDIGO TRIBE has remained a mystery.. until now, and folks, we have to say, this is the best the book has been since BLACKEST NIGHT.
Johns is back on track 100% with this arc, and we highly recommend getting caught up on your GL now!
Wanna get on board? We’ve got issues 1-9 in stock now to catch you up to this week’s #10.

 AMERICAN VAMPIRE: LORD OF NIGHTMARES #1 PROVIDES THE PERFECT JUMPING ON POINT FOR ONE OF OUR FAVORITE READS ON THE STANDS!
FROM THE SAME WRITER AS “BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS” & “THE BLACK MIRROR”, SCOTT SNYDER
AMERICAN VAMPIRE has been one of our all-time favorites here at Third Eye since it’s debut, and from the very first issue, we knew: SCOTT SNYDER was going to be a name to watch.
This guy has some serious talent, and as many of you know from his current work on the NEW 52 flagship BATMAN title, he is one of the most talented guys working today. Seriously, he knows how to keep you HOOKED on a comic.
Hot on the heels of last year’s award-winning AMERICAN VAMPIRE: SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST limited series, we see a return to post-war EUROPE and the vampire-hunting agency known as THE MORNING STAR.
Agent Felicia Book has had a dark life, filled with tragedy, but she has finally found her peace, raising her adoptive son, Gus. But when the Vassals return for help tracking the most powerful vampire of all time, she soon learns nothing can prepare her for the threat inside The Coffin — this is a fantastic companion to the ongoing AMERICAN VAMPIRE series, and a perfect jumping on point for any new readers who are interested in checking out some of Snyder’s work on other projects.
Plus: it is the best Vampire comic coming out. NO. DOUBT.

PANTHA RETURNS FROM THE PULY PAGES OF WARREN MAGAZINES VAMPIRELLA & MORE THIS WEDNESDAY IN A CUTTING EDGE NEW SERIES FROM DYNAMITE ENTERTAINMENT WITH PANTHA #1!
We’re huge fans of the glory days of horror comics, well, OK, the second wave of glory days (since ya know the EC Comics days were the first), with the WARREN horror mags. Great, black & white, magazine-sized comics like CREEPY, EERIE, and VAMPIRELLA, that delivered pulpy sci-fi and horror tales that were so subversive, and outside of the comics code that they couldn’t be contained to a regular format of comics.
Now, Dynamite, after doing an excellent job bringing VAMPIRELLA back, has brought back PANTHA in this killer new series with a modern edge.
She stalks the night, driving the forces of Chaos from the shadows and hunting them down like prey! Much more than a feral shapeshifter, Pantha is also an avatar for the Egyptian goddess Sekhmet — and she’s going to learn that history can repeat in a violent, terrifying way!
Featuring the return of many fan-favorite heroes and villains that were prominent in the old school PANTHA and VAMPIRELLA comics, this new series will be an important cornerstone for the future of Dynamite’s killer VAMPIRELLA titles.

UNTOLD TALES OF PUNISHER MAX #1 DEBUTS THIS WEDNESDAY, WITH CRIME NOVELIST JASON STARR BRINGING HIS UNIQUE VISION TO THE WORLD OF PUNISHER MAX!
We loved Garth Ennis’s now-classic run of PUNISHER MAX, and, just as much, we loved Jason Aaron’s PUNISHER MAX arc that put ol’ Frank Castle in the grave.
So, when we saw that Marvel was going to be bringing us more from the world of PUNISHER MAX, but set during the earlier periods of his time dispensing the bad guys.. well, lets face it: we got pretty freakin’ pumped. :)
Jason Starr, a crime novelist who has wowed us so many times before with amazing work in both his crime novels and his comics, brings his unique vision to the Punisher. A massive debt, a gun with untraceable bullets, one unthinkable choice: Who’s side will the Punisher take?
As gory, and gruesome as past Punisher MAX stories, and loaded with all the other gratuitous bad-assery that you’d expect, this book delivers the goods in a BIG way.
Jump no board this Wednesday with UNTOLD TALES OF PUNISHER MAX #1.

PURE ESPIONAGE BAD-ASSERY RETURNS IN TOMORROW’S DANCER #2, WHICH IS THE SECOND ISSUE FOLLOW-UP TO THE HIT NEW IMAGE SERIES FROM “WHO IS JAKE ELLIS” & “ACTIVITY” writer NATE EDMONDSON a “VIKING” artist NIC KLEIN
We loved the first issue of this new IMAGE series which really delivers a stunning read for anyone who happens to be a fan of films like TAKEN or LEON THE PROFESSIONAL.
A great, espionage-driven thriller, this book screams bad-ass, through and through. The story follows the world’s most proficient killer, aging, and mellowing, as he finds himself on the hit list of the organization that once employed him.
Now, they’ve come after him, and with this, his real-life girlfriend has gotten sucked into the violence. A hit man and a ballerina.
It’s a pretty straight-forward concept, but, it’s done so damn well, and we can see why: Edmondson is THE man when it comes to writing espionage and spy stories, and this may be his best yet.
Highly recommended, snag yourself a copy this Wednesday at Third Eye.
Missed #1? No worries, we’ve got issue #1 in stock now to catch you up to this week’s #2.

BATWOMAN: HYDROLOGY HARDCOVER DELIVERS THE FIRST FIULL STORY ARC OF JH WILLIAM III’S KILLER NEW BATWOMAN SERIES!
One of the BEST kept secrets of the NEW 52, find out why this is a big-favorite at Third Eye!
 One of the hidden gems of the NEW 52 is the amazing BATWOMAN series from JH WILLIAMS III. I mean, we loved BATWOMAN: ELEGY, which was JH WILLIAMS’s first riff on the character way back in pre-NEW 52 DETECTIVE COMICS, so when we saw him returning, well, hot damn: we couldn’t resist.
I’m telling you, Third Eye Faithful, Williams III brings some of the best damn artwork in the NEW 52 to his BATWOMAN book, and we cannot get enough of it.
The story starts off with a fantastic noir mystery, with children going missing, and for an unknown purpose. Now, Kate must train her cousin, Bette Kane (aka Flamebird) as her new sidekick. How will she handle the unsettling revelations about her father, Colonel Jacob Kane? And why is a certain government agency suddenly taking an interest in her? These are some of the questions that will be answered in this highly anticipated follow-up to the debut BATWOMAN arc by JH WILLIAMS.

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES MICRO-SERIES TRADE PAPERBACK VOLUME 1 DELIVERS MORE IDW OLD SCHOOL TMNT GOODNESS WITH A MODERN EDGE!
IDW has been doing an amazing job with their licensed books, and their revival of the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES is one of their most shining examples of how damn good they are at what they do.
This trade paperback collects the first round of micro-series one-shots, stand-alone stories which focus on the solo adventures of various Turtles, and delving deeper into their origins and motivations, while also linking back to the current ongoing TMNT series and setting up the current story arc.
The talent they’ve brought in to work on these has been top notch, and both the art and story is totally true to form for what we’d want out of a good Turtles comic.
A good blend of old school gritty and dark TMNT style action with a modern edge, we can’t recommend this stuff enough, Third Eye Faithful.

ORC STAIN VOL.1 TRADE PAPERBACK — BACK IN STOCK — A MUST READ FOR FANS OF THE ART STYLE IN “PROPHET”, MOEBIUS, AND GEOFF DARROW! 
AMAZINGLY KILLER STUFF!

This isn’t necessarily a “new” release, but, with how long this trade was out of print (seriously, it felt like an eternity, probably because of how much we love it!), we felt this book deserves some more love.

ORC STAIN is one of the best looking comics on the stands. Seriously. James Stokoe’s art is amazing, from the lush, hyper-detailed backgrounds, to the vibrant coloring… his stuff rules so hard.

And, the subject matter of Orc Stain is pretty darn fun too. If you took all of those late ’70s / early ’80s Ralph Bakshi-esque fantasy movies like FIRE AND ICE, WIZARDS, and yes, HEAVY METAL, mixed them together with some zombie bath salts, and a grindcore soundtrack, you’d get ORC STAIN.

For a million millennia the world has cracked and convulsed under the indomitable mob of the Orc. Savage, bloodthirsty creatures, they are without number, staining nearly every corner of the globe.

The mighty Orc Tzar, newest leader of the mob, marches ever both to find the lost organ of a forgotten god. Only a lone one-eyed orc with a mysterious gift can find the key to breaking the cycle forever.

An epic fantasy that will totally appeal to those of you who’re digging PROPHET, or really dug KING CITY, ORC STAIN is a MUST-READ.

Snag yourself a copy this Wednesday and find out why we’re loving this book!
