THIS WEEK’S HIGHLIGHTS AT THIRD EYE COMICS FOR WEDNESDAY 6/1/22

Monsters lurk in THE CLOSET #1 - the new existential familial horror story from writer JAMES TYNION IV!

James Tynion has been making waves in the genre of horror in the past few years with some of his recent hit series, and THE CLOSET is no exception! If you've read Nice House On The Lake you understand Tynion's mastery when it comes to writing complex interpersonal relationships and this new series has just as compelling characters but with a much smaller cast of a family of three. Everyone in this family has fears and is troubled by more than monsters, and what lurks in the closet is only the beginning!

A tale of existential familial horror by JAMES TYNION IV (THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH, RAZORBLADES) and GAVIN FULLERTON (BOG BODIES, Bags). Thom is moving cross-country with his family and dragging the past along with them. His son, Jamie, is seeing monsters in the bedroom closet and will not let them go.

We've also got a sick THIRD EYE X ECGCE EXCLUSIVE COVER for THE CLOSET #1 by the amazing artist BRAO! Order your copy now while this exclusive cover is still available!
