SAT 8/3/24: Nice House By The Sea #1 Launch Signing with James Tynion IV

August 3 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Third Eye Faithful, we are so darn stoked to be having one of our all-time favorite comic superstars back to Third Eye this August: JAMES TYNION IV, the critically acclaimed author behind hits like SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, W0RLDTR33, DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH & many more!!!
And, he’s coming in for something EXTRA SPECIAL: the highly anticipated sequel to his must-read horror masterpiece, NICE HOUSE BY THE LAKE!
In NICE HOUSE BY THE SEA, no one who was invited to the House knew Max–but she knew each and every one of them.
Masters of their fields, titans of industry and knowledge, they all represented the best and brightest of humanity. So when Max whispered to each of them the truth of what they deserved–to be saved from disaster, to carry on the flame of civilization in a paradise built just for them–they all leaped at the chance.
Why not? Why shouldn’t they be the ones to live forever?
Isn’t it their destiny to survive the culling of the lesser herd? Wouldn’t being named the future of humanity be…nice?
With the Eisner Award-winning The Nice House on the Lake, honored as Best New Series by the prestigious Angouleme International Comics Festival, James Tynion IV and Alvaro Martinez Bueno shocked the comics industry and unleashed a classic of contemporary horror…and no matter what you might think is coming, you aren’t ready for their second act!
And, don’t forget… if you haven’t read NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE before, this is a perfect time to start, by snagging the first graphic novel of NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE, which is the series that precedes NICE HOUSE BY THE SEA! In NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE, “Everyone who was invited to the house knows Walter-well, they know him a little, anyway. Some met him in childhood; some met him months ago. And Walter’s always been a little…off. But after the hardest year of their lives, nobody was going to turn down Walter’s invitation to an astonishingly beautiful house in the woods, overlooking an enormous sylvan lake. It’s beautiful, it’s opulent, it’s private-so a week of putting up with Walter’s weird little schemes and nicknames in exchange for the vacation of a lifetime? Why not? All of them were at that moment in their lives when they could feel themselves pulling away from their other friends; wouldn’t a chance to reconnect be…nice?
Don’t miss the first collected edition of 2021’s smash-hit horror sensation-so you can be all caught up when The Nice House on the Lake returns with issue #7! 




SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN is easily James’s biggest book of all-time, and for good reason: this monster-hunting must-read is one of the most compelling books on the stands!
When the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. The few children that return alive have terrible stories-impossible details of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows. Their only hope is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to be the only adult who sees what they can see.  Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters.
That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it must be done. GLAAD Award-winning writer James Tynion IV (The Woods, Batman: Detective Comics) teams with artist Werther Dell’Edera (Briggs Land) for a haunting series about staring into the abyss… and what happens when the abyss stares back. Collects issues #1-5.

DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH is another must-read hit from James that delivers some of the most exciting creepy conspiracy storytelling you’re gonna find, and we love every second of it!
COLE TURNER has studied conspiracy theories all his life, but he isn’t prepared for what happens when he discovers that all of them are true, from the JFK Assassination to Flat Earth Theory and Reptilian Shapeshifters. One organization has been covering them up for generations.
What is the deep, dark secret behind the Department of Truth? From bestselling writer JAMES TYNION IV (Batman, Something is Killing the Children) and breakout artist MARTIN SIMMONDS (Dying is Easy)! Collects THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH #1-5.
Get it signed by James on 8/3/24!
W0RLDTR33 is one of James’s newest projects, and delivers late ’90s internet dial-up chills in a BIG way, and we looooove it!!!
In 1999, Gabriel and his friends discovered the Undernet-a secret architecture to the internet. They charted their exploration on a message board called W0RLDTR33.
Then they lost control. Someone broke into W0RLDTR33-someone who welcomed the violent hold the Undernet had on them. At great personal cost, Gabriel and the others thought they sealed the Undernet away for good.
They were wrong. And now the whole world will know the meaning of PH34R.
Don’t miss the next major horror outing from multiple Eisner Award-winning writer JAMES TYNION IV (THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH, The Nice House on the Lake) and FERNANDO BLANCO (Detective Comics).
Collects WORLDTR33 #1-5

WYND is another favorite of ours at Third Eye, bringing James’s mad skills to the world of comics in a whimsical all ages adventures!!!
Wynd lives a quiet life in Pipetown – working at the local tavern, out of sight in the secret rooms beneath the floorboards, often stealing away to catch glimpses of the son of the castle’s groundskeeper as he works.
But Wynd also has a secret… magical blood betrayed by his pointed ears, forbidden within the city limits.
Joined by his best friend Oakley and Thorn, the groundskeeper’s son, Wynd’s strange dreams and an encounter with the city guard send him on the most dangerous adventure he could imagine, where Wynd will discover the magic in the world around him and, most importantly, the magic within himself.
Collects Wynd #1-5.

BATMAN: THEIR DARK DESIGNS collects the 1st arc of James’s critically acclaimed BATMAN run, which introduced so many new iconic BAT characters, including the super popular PUNCHLINE!
James Tynion IV’s smash-hit Batman run begins here! This start of a bold new chapter in the Batman saga collects stories from Batman #85-94 and Batman: Secret Files #3, featuring the debut of breakout character Punchline and setting the stage for Batman: The Joker War!
