Third Eye Faithful, as many of you know — we are gigantic Tom King and Mitch Gerads fans. Whether it’s their incredible SHERIFF OF BABYLON mini-series, or their iconic, character re-defining MISTER MIRACLE maxiseries, these two make pure comic magic whenever they come together, and when we saw that they would be bringing their unique style to the one and only ADAM STRANGE — we knew we had to do something huge to celebrate.
We’ve put together a massive launch signing for Saturday 3/7/20 to kick the book off, and we’re bringing in both Tom and Mitch to sign for YOU, Third Eye Faithful!
Get STOKED, Third Eye Faithful, as this is set to be one of DC’s biggest hits of 2020!
What’s the scoop on STRANGE ADVENTURES #1?
After winning five Eisner Awards and topping year-end “best of lists,” the comic book of 2019 was Mister Miracle. The comic book of 2020 will be Strange Adventures.
The Mister Miracle team of writer Tom King and artist Mitch Gerads are joined by fan-favorite artist Evan “Doc” Shaner to bring you an epic tale in the tradition of Watchmen, The Dark Knight Returns, and DC: The New Frontier-a story of blood, war, and love that readers will be talking about for years to come.
Adam Strange is the hero of Rann, a man famous throughout the galaxy for his bravery and honor. After leading his adopted home to victory in a great planetary war, Adam and his wife Alanna retire to Earth, where they are greeted by cheers, awards, and parades.
But not all is as happy and nice as it seems, as the decisions Adam made during battles on Rann come back to haunt his family and threaten the entire DC Universe. And now a surprise DC hero will have to choose between saving Adam Strange and saving the world.
A story like no other, Strange Adventures is an ambitious, thrilling, shocking, and beautiful 12-issue saga that will push Adam Strange to the breaking point-and beyond!

Other Projects by Tom & Mitch
First off – one of the best comics of the last decade – MISTER MIRACLE is recommended reading for anyone; even those of you who may not be big into superhero comics, this book is a high mark in the genre, and is the perfect entry point into the world of the NEW GODS.
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.
Snag the graphic novel and get it signed by Tom and Mitch on 3/7/20!
Another of our favorite collaborations by Tom and Mitch is the incredible SHERIFF OF BABYLON!
In an effort to establish some semblance of order in the war-torn city, Florida cop-turned-military-consultant Chris Henry has been assigned to train cadets in law enforcement.
But good intentions are not immune to the chaos found in the post-9/11 Middle East.
When one of Henry’s trainees is found dead, he’s forced to ally himself with Nassir, the last policeman in Baghdad, to unravel a bloody mystery. While Henry and Nassir search for answers, forces in the shadows are pulling strings that these men don’t even know they’re tied to.
Collects the entire 12-issue miniseries.
Snag this one in either trade paperback or hardcover, and get it signed by Tom and Mitch on 3/7/20!
Another must from Tom is his incredible run of BATMAN, which in our opinion may go down as one of the best BATMAN runs of the last few decades, and really does set an incredible standard for just what a BATMAN book can be.
With nearly 11 trade paperbacks, and 85 issues worth of incredible story, Tom’s run on BATMAN is the definition of epic, and if you’ve never read it — we really cannot recommend it enough. It’s seriously one of the best things to hit comics in the last five years.
We’ll have all the graphic novels, as well as nearly the entire run in single issues, in stock, for you to scoop and get signed by Tom on 3/7/20!
Another must-read in the realm of Tom’s past projects is the incredible VISION maxiseries he did for MARVEL a few years back, which you can now scoop in its entirety with the VISION COMPLETE COLLECTION, collecting the entire 12-issue series.
One of our personal favorite comics of the 2010s, VISION is a book on the level of things like WATCHMEN, DARK KNIGHT RETURNS, and more, in terms of what it does for the superhero genre, and it still stands out as one of our favorite works by Tom.
A super hero story like no other. He was created to kill the Avengers – but he turned against his “father.”
He found a home among Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and love in the arms of the Scarlet Witch – but it didn’t end well.
Now, the Vision just wants an ordinary life – with a wife and two children, a home in the suburbs, perhaps even a dog. So he built them. But it won’t end any better.
Everything is nice and normal – until the deaths begin. Tom King and Gabriel Hernandez Walta confound expectations in their heartbreaking, gut-wrenching, breathtaking magnum opus – collected in all its Eisner Award-winning glory.
Snag a copy of this modern masterpiece, and get it signed by Tom on 3/7/20!
And, since we’re getting space-age with Adam Strange, you better check out Tom’s incredible OMEGA MEN while you’re here as well!
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!
