So, we’re pretty freakin’ pumped on the upcoming BLACK LABEL series, JOKER / HARLEY: CRIMINAL SANITY featuring superstar KAMI GARCIA (DC Ink: RAVEN), and with the book coming out right on the heels of the new JOKER movie (which looks SO freakin’ cool!) — we just had to do something extra special to help launch it big at Third Eye!
Join us on 10/12/19 as we bring in both KAMI GARCIA and BATMAN writer TOM KING to do a very special BATS & LAUGHS double-feature signing, where you can get your fill of the Joker, Harley, and even the Dark Knight himself by getting copies of Kami’s new book signed by her, and copies of Tom’s Batman run and other projects signed by him!
What’s the scoop on JOKER / HARLEY: CRIMINAL SANITY?
In Gotham City, where heinous acts of violence are a daily occurrence, the GCPD relies on Harley Quinn, a young forensic psychiatrist and profiler, to consult on their toughest cases.
But Harley is haunted by one unsolved case-the night she discovered her roommate’s body marked with the signature of a notorious serial killer known as The Joker.
Five years later, the case remains unsolved and a new series of horrific murders occur throughout the city.
As the murders escalate, Harley’s obsession with finding the depraved psychopath responsible leads her down a dangerous path.
When the past and the present finally collide, Harley has to decide how far she is willing to go-and how many lines she is willing to cross-to solve these cases once and for all.
JOKER/HARLEY: CRIMINAL SANITY introduces readers to a Joker and Harley Quinn unlike any they’ve seen before, utilizing forensic psychiatry, behavior analysis (profiling) and psychological profiles to create a true-to-life take on these iconic characters that is more terrifying than any psychotic fantasy.
OTHER PROJECTS BY KAMI GARCIA & TOM KING
In addition to JOKER & HARLEY: CRIMINAL SANITY, Kami will also be signing copies of her recent hit DC Ink graphic novel — TEEN TITANS: RAVEN, featuring art by webcomics superstar Gabriel Picolo!
What’s the scoop on RAVEN? When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom-and Raven’s memory-she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother’s family and finish her senior year of high school.
Starting over isn’t easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can’t remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. When strange things start happening-things most people would consider impossible-Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.
But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she’s ready to face what’s buried in the past…and the darkness building inside her.
Tom King has a TON of big books under his belt, and here’s just a few of the ones that we love the most — and that you can get signed at Third Eye on 10/12/19!
First off: BATMAN.
We gotta tell ya: Tom’s BATMAN is one of those incredible runs that will go down in history.
It’s pretty amazing that we’re getting THREE amazing BAT-RUNS in a row.
Seriously: Grant Morrison’s work on BATMAN, which then led us to Scott Snyder’s iconic run, which then brought us to Tom’s run.
That’s nearly TEN years of Batman awesomeness, and we cannot even begin to tell you how lucky we feel to have been with these runs every step of the way since Third Eye opened its doors!
If you’re not reading Tom’s run, we highly recommend jumping on board. We know many of you may have already picked up THE BUTTON, but if you haven’t read the earlier stuff, please scoop the first volume and get into it!
We’ll have plenty of all the trade paperbacks, as well as single issues of Tom’s BATMAN in stock to get you on board, so you can get ’em signed!
Secondly, MISTER MIRACLE.
The critically acclaimed 12-issue mini-series is collected. Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived.
So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former Female Fury known as Big Barda.
Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques. He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks. You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough?
Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick-except one.
He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.
THIRD: OMEGA MEN!
OMEGA MEN is by far one of the best sleeper hits in comics we’ve seen in a minute, and if you haven’t yet added it to your collection alongside VISION, you need to remedy that right this minute!
This dark, hard-hitting space epic takes an obscure group of DC Comics characters, and reinvents them in one of the most compelling ways we’ve seen.
And, how does it do that? Well, them murdering KYLE RAYNER is a good start.
On the run, and with motives that’ll surprise you, the world of OMEGA MEN is a brutal space epic steeped in a love of the DC Universe that will grab a hold of you and not let go!
We’ll have plenty of the graphic novel collecting the entire series in stock for you to get signed by Tom!
In this eerie, smart, and subtly complex series, the idea of not just the Vision, but artificial intelligence, and what it means to be human is brought into question in a way we’ve never seen before.
The Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family?
He goes to the laboratory where he was created, where Ultron molded him into a weapon, where he first rebelled against his given destiny, where he first imagined that he could be more, that he could be good, that he could be a man, a normal, ordinary man. And he builds them.
A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition or perhaps obsession: the unrelenting need to be ordinary.
Behold The Visions! They’re the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong?
This is the kind of book that people will be holding in the same high regard as Grant Morrison’s ANIMAL MAN, Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING, and more, for years to come!
FIFTH: SHERIFF OF BABYLON!
Third Eye Faithful, I cannot even begin to tell you how freakin’ stoked we are about this killer series featuring the sharp writing of MISTER MIRACLE team Tom King and the amazing artwork of Mitch Gerards!
Baghdad, 2003. Florida police officer-turned-military contractor, Chris Henry is tasked with training a new Iraqi police force.
When one of his trainees ends up dead, Chris is forced to team up with Nassir, the last remaining cop in Baghdad.
Pulling the strings to bring them together is the mysterious Sofia, an American-educated Iraqi who has returned to take control of the city’s criminal underworld.
This stunning new mini-series delivers a wartime crime drama that’s unlike anything we’ve seen done in comics. You know the chills you got when you first read CRIMINAL? You know the way your jaw hit the floor upon finishing that first arc of SOUTHERN BASTARDS? Sheriff of Babylon delivers the same kind of feeling — a truly unique and fascinating read!
It’s also no secret that Tom’s real-life experience as a CIA operations officer probably helps lend an unremarkable amount of awesomeness to this new series!
