Third Eye Faithful: we are so excited to be hosting one of our most anticipated signings yet — comics superstar James Tynion IV alongside PUNCHLINE writer Sam Johns! We’ve been big fans of both the killer creator-owned series James has been putting out like DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, and WYND, as well as both he and Sam’s work on things like BATMAN, PUNCHLINE, and much more! So, you better believe we are freakin’ PUMPED to be hosting these two for a fantastic in-store signing experience in true Third Eye fashion at the Third Eye mothership in Annapolis, MD! And, the book we’re kicking off with this signing is going to be one of the biggest, most exciting horror comics of 2021: THE NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE. That’s right, Third Eye Faithful: the man who brought you SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN and DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH is returning with another venture into horror, and this one may be his most chilling, and exciting yet!
What’s the scoop on THE 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? With Something Is Killing The Children and The Department of Truth, James Tynion IV has changed the face of horror in modern comics – now get ready for his most ambitious story yet, alongside his Detective Comics partner Álvaro Mart nez Bueno! This chilling new horror series looks to break new ground for DC Comics and their BLACK LABEL imprint, much like THE SANDMAN and HELLBLAZER helped put DC’s VERTIGO imprint on the map in the ’90s, we have a strong hunch that NICE HOUSE ON THE LAKE is going to do the same for BLACK LABEL in a big way! Do NOT sleep on this book!
OTHER PROJECTS BY James Tynion IV & Sam Johns!
DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH has been one of our favorite new series of 2020, and for good reason: it’s all the crazy conspiracy weirdness you want and then some! 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)! We’ll have plenty of copies of the single issues of the series, along with the trade paperback collecting 1-5 to get you started!
The PUNCHLINE #1 One-Shot by James Tynion IV & Sam Johns is a perfect introduction to one of the most popular new DC characters to debut since Harley Quinn, Red Hood, and the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS!
Spinning out of the pages of “The Joker War” comes the first solo book starring the blockbuster new character Punchline.
As she faces the consequences for her role in “The Joker War,” the story of how Alexis Kaye became Punchline will take Leslie Thompkins, Harper Row, and Cullen Row on a harrowing journey that reveals a fringe teenager’s radicalization to the ideology of madman. It’s a terrifying tale so big it demanded an oversize special issue!
Quite possibly the most popular horror series since THE WALKING DEAD in its glory days, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN is a must-read!
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.
