Third Eye Faithful, one of our favorite superstars in comics is the one and only Skottie Young, who many of you know from the incredible MIDDLEWEST & I HATE FAIRYLAND Image series, as well as his iconic “Little Marvel” variant covers throughout the years.

Now, we’re bringing the one and only Skottie Young to Third Eye to kick off the most exciting project of his career to date: STRANGE ACADEMY!

This incredible new ongoing series, set in continuity with the Marvel Universe, loaded with the debut 1st appearances of several new characters, and setting the stage for an entirely new corner of the Marvel U to be explored is going to be one of the biggest books of 2020.

And, guess what? We’re bringing series creator & writer Skottie Young to Third Eye to kick it off in true Third Eye Fashion!

What’s the scoop on STRANGE ACADEMY? 

The Marvel Universe has mysteriously changed in such an alarming way that Doctor Strange has done what he’s avoided for decades; he’s opened a school for young sorcerers.

Young people from around the world with aptitude in magic have been brought together in New Orleans to study the Mystic Arts under Strange, Brother Voodoo, the Ancient One, the Scarlet Witch, Magik, Hellstrom and ALL your favorite Marvel magicians.

But with all the new magical threats, is it too late?!

If you took the timeless fun and wonder of something like Harry Potter and then blended it against the bigger-than-life bombastic awesomeness of the MARVEL UNIVERSE, you’d get STRANGE ACADEMY, and we’re loving EVERY SECOND OF IT!

Other Projects by Skottie Young

I HATE FAIRYLAND is one of our all-time faves, and one of Skottie’s most beloved works!
In I HATE FAIRYLAND, we get an Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes it’s cute little face against Tank Girl/Deadpool-esque violent madness has arrived.

In an adventure that ain’t for the little kiddies, (unless you have super cool parents, then whatever), you’ll meet Gert-a six year old girl who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for thirty years and will hack and slash her way through anything to find her way back home.

Join Gert and her giant battle-axe on a delightfully blood soaked journey to see who will survive the girl who HATES FAIRYLAND!

This incredible new IMAGE COMICS ongoing series has quickly become one of our favorite reads, month in and month out, and if you haven’t yet gotten into it: this first trade paperback collecting 1-6 for just $16.99 is the perfect place to start!

The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics.

The town of Farmington has been destroyed, sending an unwitting adventurer and his vulpine companion in search of answers-and to quell a coming storm that speaks his name.
From author SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND, Deadpool, Fortunately, the Milk) and artist JORGE CORONA (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET, Feathers, Big Trouble in Little China: Old Man Jack) comes the tale of Abel, a young boy who must navigate an old land in order to reconcile his family’s history.

The perfect read for fans of dark fantasy like Return to Oz, classic Don Bluth animation, and/or Miyazaki animation. Collects MIDDLEWEST #1-6.
Make sure you get the MIDDLEWEST VOL.1 THIRD EYE COMICS exclusive edition!

In addition to the regular edition of MIDDLEWEST, we’re going to have a special edition THIRD EYE COMICS variant of MIDDLEWEST featuring the artwork of SKOTTIE himself, and limited to just 200 copies!
That’s right: it’s gonna be a popular one, and you can get yours for just $16.99! We’ll have it available in all of our stores, or you can pre-order your copy now!

Rufus has been the biggest bully in Rottenville since kindergarten, but everything changed on the first day of high school.
Suddenly going from bully to bullied, he’s forced to make a shaky pact with his favorite geeks, Spencer and his twin sibling besties Edith and Ernie, to survive the Hunger Games-like contest known as the Bully Wars-where the winner will rule the school!
Collects BULLY WARS #1-5.

Skottie has really built up a following with all the awesome and different stuff he’s done, and one of the things he’s most famous for are his incredible variant covers featuring little kid versions of Marvel’s greatest heroes!

These iconic images of classic covers and iconic heroes and villains have captivated fans of all ages, and as such, has built quite a following for Young’s work.

We’ll have plenty of the assorted Marvel baby variants available to purchase at our signing with Skottie so you can get some of your favorites signed!

Another series that really caught our imaginations from Skottie was his incredible OZ comics from Marvel, where he took all of the Oz tales and adapted them into some of the most charming, and compelling graphic novels we’ve ever seen.

It all starts with WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ, and then carries on from there!


You know who is the perfect writer for the Merc with a Mouth? The one and only Skottie Young, Third Eye Faithful, and there’s really no doubt about that!

In DEADPOOL VOL.1 MERCIN HARD FOR THE MONEY, Deadpool is back to mercin’ for a living!

It’s been a while since Wade Wilson has struggled to make ends meet, but things are tough all over.

While Deadpool tries to get his humble business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge – so mind-breakingly cataclysmic that it defies description – is heading toward Earth, and only one person can stop it!

Oh no, wait – it’s not Deadpool, is it? Oh %$@#. It’s Deadpool. Good thing he has a plan. But what happens when things take a turn for the weird – Weirdworld, that is!

Find out as Wade ventures into a realm of monsters, sorceresses, Man-Things…and romance? Plus: Halloween hijinks – and a very, very bad day! Hop back on board the Deadpool train as Skottie Young, Nic Klein and Scott Hepburn reinvent the Merc With a Mouth!
