Decorum #1 Launch Signing with Jonathan Hickman (House of X, East of West, Secret Wars)

March 14 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT


Third Eye Faithful: get ready — we’re bringing you our biggest signing yet – JONATHAN FREAKIN’ HICKMAN!

That’s right, the incredible superstar comic writer who reinvented the X-Men with HOUSE OF X, and turned the Marvel Universe on its head with SECRET WARS, will be coming to Third Eye to launch his biggest creator-owned series yet: DECORUM, from IMAGE COMICS!

We’ve been long-time fans of Jonathan’s work, whether it was his early Marvel hits like SECRET WARRIORS & SHIELD, or his legendary creator-owned favorites like Pax Romana, Manhattan Projects, and East of West — he definitely holds a place in the Third Eye Hall of Fame!

So, when we saw he had a brand new IMAGE series coming out, hot on the heels of his recent smash success with HOUSE OF X, we knew we had to do something special to celebrate!

What’s the scoop on DECORUM? 

In this new IMAGE series, there are many assassins in the known universe. This is the story of the most well-mannered one.

“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what knife you use.”

Jonathan Hickman doing space assassins? Count us in!

Other projects by Jonathan

OK, so, first and foremost, the book that nearly every single one of you went nuts for in 2019, Third Eye Faithful: HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X!

In HOUSE OF X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind – one that will bring mutants out of humankind’s shadow and into the light once more!

Meanwhile, POWERS OF X reveals mutantkind’s secret history, changing the way you will look at every X-Men story before and after.

But as Xavier sows the seeds of the past, the X-Men’s future blossoms into trouble for all of mutantdom. Stories intertwine on an epic scale as Jonathan Hickman reshapes the X-Men’s past, present and future!

We’ll have plenty of copies of both the single issues of HoX / PoX, and the hardcover of the series, for you to scoop and get singed by Jonathan on 3/14/20!

Another must-read from Jonathan is his incredible long-running dystopian alternate history sci-fi western, EAST OF WEST.

This is world. It is not the one we wanted, but it is the one we deserved.

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse roam the Earth, signaling the End Times for humanity, and our best hope for life, lies in Death.

One of our all-time favorites, we’ll have plenty of all the trade paperbacks and hardcovers of EAST OF WEST in stock and available for you to scoop and get signed on 3/14/20!

Another legendary read from Jonathan is his incredible Marvel project, SECRET WARS, which literally turned the Marvel Universe on its head, and then some!

Seriously: it remains one of the most impressive MARVEL events of all-time, and if you’ve never read it — we can’t recommend it enough!

In SECRET WARS, the Marvel Universe is no more!

The interdimensional Incursions have eliminated each and every alternate universe one by one.

And now – despite the best efforts of scientists, sages and superhumans – the Marvel Universe and Ultimate Universe have collided…and been destroyed!

All that exists in the vast empty cosmos is a single, titanic patchwork planet made of the fragmented remains of hundreds of devastated dimensions: Battleworld!

And the survivors of this multiversal catastrophe all bend their knee to Battleworld’s master: Doctor Doom! What strange creatures inhabit this world?

Which familiar faces will return? And what happens when Battleworld’s domains go to war?

The Marvel Universe is dead – and the victors of the Secret Wars will determine what comes next!

Hickman’s library is so full of different stuff, and another fav of ours, is his incredible horror / crime drama, BLACK MONDAY MURDERS, which brings a blend of occultism and the politics and economies of the world into play.

BLACK MONDAY MURDERS delivers a must-read, and if you’ve never tried it – we’ll have both trade paperbacks in stock for you to scoop and get signed on 3/14/20!

Definitely our favorite FANTASTIC FOUR run of all time has gotta be Hickman’s, and Marvel has reprinted his epic character-defining run into two gorgeous complete collections!

Legendary writer Jonathan Hickman’s sprawling, landmark run begins here! Dark Reign strikes Marvel’s first family in an explosive way – with H.A.M.M.E.R. agents attacking the Baxter Building!

But as Reed Richards builds a bridge across the Multiverse to learn how to solve everything, he finds more than he bargained for.

What is the Council?

The FF deal with the Wizard and the Mole Man; a familiar visitor arrives from the future with a mysterious message; and the team journeys deep beneath the Earth, under the sea and to the moon – where they learn a startling secret about the history of the Inhumans.

It’s superior super-hero storytelling as only Jonathan Hickman can deliver it!

Hickman does an incredible job of taking real world history, and then adding an otherworldly twist, and his work on MANHATTAN PROJECTS proves to be one of our all-time favorites.

What if the research and development department created to produce the first atomic bomb was a front for a series of other, more unusual, programs?

Taking historical fact and blending it with bigger-than-life fiction, MANHATTAN PROJECTS remains one of our favorite IMAGE COMICS reads of all-time.


SHIELD takes some of the biggest ideas of Hickman, and blends them with real world historical figures against the backdrop of the Marvel Universe to tell one of the most unique Marvel stories of all-time.

Leonardo da Vinci. Galileo Galilei. Sir Isaac Newton.

The titans of history, they discovered the truth of reality in mathematics and the limits of possibility in science – and pushed past those limits with their boundless imaginations.

And each has weighed the same question: What is man’s destiny?

For these men were also all members of the Brotherhood of the Shield, a secret organization that has been safeguarding humanity and shepherding the future for almost 5,000 years.

They turned back the Brood in ancient Egypt.

They kept a Celestial from destroying Earth in first-century China.

They stopped Galactus the first time he visited our planet during the 16th century.

And still they watch over us all. But during the late 1950s, the Brotherhood faced a test like none other: the Night Machine, a super-powered being driven to bring about the organization’s utter destruction.?

His vicious attack on the High Council’s Rome headquarters causes a line to be drawn between the members of the Shield, and the questions about man’s destiny will be resolved once and for all!

Snag a copy of the trade paperback, and get it signed at Third Eye on 3/14/20!

Pax Romana is one of our earliest exposures to the work of Jonathan Hickman, and it still remains one of our favorites.

From the mind of comic book innovator JONATHAN HICKMAN, comes the exhilarating time-traveling epic: PAX ROMANA.

The creator of THE NIGHTLY NEWS brings his unique sensibility to science fiction and the result is a visually stunning look at a new history of the world.

PAX ROMANA tells the tale of 5000 men sent on an impossible mission to change the past and save the future.

And how can we forget… X-MEN! The follow-up to Jonathan’s incredible HOUSE OF X, this is THE Marvel book to be reading right now, and every single second of it has been INCREDIBLE!

The X-Men find themselves in a whole new world of possibility… and things have never been better! Jonathan Hickman (HOUSE OF X, POWERS OF X, SECRET WARS) and superstar artist Leinil Yu (NEW AVENGERS, CAPTAIN AMERICA) reveal the saga of Cyclops and his hand-picked squad of mutant powerhouses!
