Third Eye Faithful — we gotta tell you: we are probably the biggest Tom King fans around. Seriously: since his early work on GRAYSON & OMEGA MEN to recent hits like STRANGE ADVENTURES, BATMAN / CATWOMAN, RORSCHACH and MISTER MIRACLE — we love the guy’s stuff. And, how can we forget his incredible BATMAN run, which still holds up as one of our fav runs of all-time? Seriously: Tom King does good stuff, and when we saw he was going to be bringing a unique spin to Supergirl, we knew we had to do something special to celebrate! That’s why on Wednesday 6/16/21, we’ll be bringing Tom in to sign Supergirl for you at Third Eye Annapolis, along with his other projects!

What’s the scoop on SUPERGIRL WOMAN OF TOMORROW?

Kara Zor-El has seen some epic adventures over the years, but finds her life without meaning or purpose. Here she is, a young woman who saw her planet destroyed and was sent to Earth to protect a baby cousin who ended up not needing her. What was it all for? Wherever she goes, people only see her through the lens of Superman’s fame. Just when Supergirl thinks she’€™s had enough, everything changes. An alien girl seeks her out for a vicious mission. Her world has been destroyed, and the bad guys responsible are still out there. She wants revenge, and if Supergirl doesn’€™t help her, she’ll do it herself, whatever the cost. Now a Kryptonian, a dog, and an angry, heartbroken child head out into space on a journey that will shake them to their very core.  

 

 

OTHER PROJECTS BY Tom King!

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.  

 

 

Another of our favorite collaborations by Tom and Mitch is the incredible SHERIFF OF BABYLON! Baghdad, 2003. 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.  

 

 

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.      

 

 

 

 

 

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.
