THIS WEEK’S HIGHLIGHTS AT THIRD EYE COMICS FOR WEDNESDAY 6/8/22

The Justice League is gone, and the Dark Army rises! The biggest comic event of the summer starts HERE with DC's DARK CRISIS #1!!

DC's next big crossover event that's been years in the making is finally here! This kind of multiverse-spanning generational story-telling is what we love about DC comics! Everything you know about the DC universe and it's continuity over the last 10-20 years culminates here into one big epic battle that could only be known as DARK CRISIS! 

It kicked off last April with the DEATH OF THE JUSTICE LEAGUE in issue #75 of their main self-titled series. With the Justice League gone we see if these remaining heroes have what it takes to band together against the DARK ARMY, consisting of every big bad in the DCU, that took down their predecessors! The ROAD TO DARK CRISIS one-shot that dropped last week bridged the gap between Justice League #75 and Dark Crisis #1 and sets the stage for our main players in this event! Everything has been leading up to this and trust us, you won't want to miss a single issue! 

Crisis on Infinite Earths. Infinite Crisis. Final Crisis. And now...Dark Crisis! The epic event years in the making is finally here! Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League are dead. The remaining heroes are left to protect the world from an onslaught of violent attacks by DC's greatest villains! Can the legacy heroes step out of the shadows of the classic heroes to form a new Justice League? And will that be enough to stop a darkness greater than anything they've ever faced from destroying everything? Don't miss out on the first issue of the blockbuster event of the summer!

Check out our THIRD EYE GUIDE TO DARK CRISIS to get the full scoop and the hype around this huge event!

Dark Crisis #1 is where the action kicks off and of course this monumental issue is going to have some sick covers like this awesome REDONDO variant!

Arthur discovers what's truly hiding in the depths in the newest DC Black Label psychological horror AQUAMAN ANDROMEDA #1!

Deep in the Pacific Ocean, at the farthest possible distance from any land, sits Point Nemo: the spaceship graveyard. Since the dawn of the space race, the nations of the world have sent their crafts there on splashdown, to sink beneath the silent seas. But there is something...else at Point Nemo. A structure never made by human hands. And that structure seems to be...waking up.

 

The crew of the experimental submarine Andromeda, powered by a mysterious black-hole drive, have been chosen to investigate this mystery. But they aren't the only ones pursuing it. Anything of value beneath the ocean is of value to the master pirate Black Manta...and anything that attracts Black Manta attracts Arthur Curry, his lifelong foe, the Aquaman! But heaven help them all when the doors of the mystery at Point Nemo swing wide to admit them...

 

Bringing a bracing cosmic-horror sensibility to the world of Aquaman, rising superstars Ram V (Venom, The Swamp Thing) and Christian Ward (Thor, Invisible Kingdom) team up to put Arthur Curry through an exercise in psychological terror that could break the will of even a king!
