Wynd #1 Virtual Signing w/ writer James Tynion IV (BATMAN, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN)
June 20, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT
PLEASE NOTE: this is NOT a physical in-store signing event. This is a VIRTUAL signing event, a first of it’s kind way to keep the fun coming your way!
Third Eye Faithful, you know us: we’re never content to just let things go, and when the world got turned upside down and the idea of doing in-person creator signings with some of our pals who make the hottest comics around got thrown out the window for the next couple of months — we’re gonna be real: we were bummed.
However, after putting our heads together here at Third Eye, we’ve come up with something that we feel is pretty darn cool, and pretty darn unique — and, gives YOU, Third Eye Faithful, to be a part of the first ever virtual signing event, and we’re doing it with one of the biggest names in comics today: BATMAN writer JAMES TYNION IV.
You’re probably wondering: OK, Third Eye, what’re you getting at? Well, read on, and find out!
Make History and be a Part of the 1st Virtual Comic Book Signing Event at Third Eye!
With the state of the world – cramming a couple hundred people into our store isn’t quite the smartest thing to do right now (although we’re stoked to have you visiting us for in-store shopping again!) due to the suggestions for social distancing, and what not.
Combine that with the fact that many comic book creators are not really feeling the idea of hopping on planes right now — and well, that means, the idea of in-store signings is going to be tough to pull off until the end of Summer, or Fall.
But: FEAR NOT! We’ve come up with something truly unique that we think will help keep you hooked up on the things that make our in-store signings so great – the chance to interact with your favorite comic creators AND the chance to get copies of your favorite books signed!
And, we’re kicking this off with one of the biggest names in comics today: JAMES TYNION IV – known for his recent hit SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN and his epic BATMAN run that’s about to explode with JOKER WAR, and we CANNOT wait!
So, how’s it work?
- Download the meeting app ZOOM (https://zoom.us) for your computer or device.
- Go to the link: thirdeyecomics.com/wyndsigning on 6/20/20 anytime after 10AM, but before 11AM, and follow the instructions to join the ZOOM meeting.
- At 11AM, our guest, James, will be logging in, and allowing you to submit questions via the app, and as the hosts, we’ll be passing them to James to answer.
- While James is answering your questions, or taking your comments on his work, he’ll be signing copies of his various projects, like WYND, BATMAN, and more (we’ll have already sent the books to James ahead of the signing).
- There’ll be product links to order signed copies of the various books James is signing during the event, both in the chat, and on the link: thirdeyecomics.com/wyndsigning
- James will ship the books back to us at Third Eye, and we’ll have them waiting in-store at your location to pick-up, OR if you prefer, we can coordinate shipping for you on them. 🙂
What’s the scoop on WYND? Find out why Tynion’s next BOOM series will be his biggest hit since SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN!
Following hot on the heels of his incredible horror-charged masterpiece, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, Wynd is set to be the next big hit from superstar JAMES TYNION IV, and we could not be more stoked to be hosting a signing event for it!
For fans of Once & Future, Isola and Middlewest, the award-winning team of James Tynion IV (Batman, Something is Killing the Children) and Michael Dialynas (The Woods, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) reunite for the new must-read series that shocked the comic industry!
Magical heritage is punishable by death in Pipetown, so a young boy named Wynd must keep his true identity – and pointy ears – a secret from everyone, even if it means he’ll never have the normal life he wants.
But when his secret is threatened, Wynd will be forced to leave his home behind to embark on a dangerous quest that will put him at the heart of a royal conspiracy beyond his imagination.
Now on the run with Oakley (his best friend), Thorn (the boy of his dreams), and Yorick (a literal prince!), Wynd will have to embrace the magic within himself if he wants to save them from the shocking dangers that await!
If you wish to get your pre-order copies signed, please note so in the order comments, so we can notify you of the process!

Other Projects by James
OK, one of the biggest books by James that we’re in love with is his incredible BOOM series, SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, which totally channels the awesomeness of things like Stephen King’s IT, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and manga like PROMISED NEVERLAND into an incredible 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.
Another big hit from James currently is his run of BATMAN, which began with #86, and is continuing up through to the explosive JOKER WAR storyline!
Kicking off in BATMAN #86, James has been delivering one of the best runs of BATMAN we’ve seen yet, and with the introduction of the red hot new character, PUNCHLINE, we’re completely hooked on this series!
We’ve got copies of BATMAN #86 all the way up through to BATMAN #91 (and #92 will be out in time for this signing as well!), to get you hooked up and get signed by James.
You can snag them in-store at any of our locations, or you can order the day of the signing at the purchase links we’ve got at the event page!
Another HUGE book from James is the recently concluded mini-series, YEAR OF THE VILLAIN: HELL ARISEN, which not only sets the stage for JOKER WAR but also begins the road to the highly anticipated DEATH METAL event that’s going to blow the doors off the comic industry this Summer!
We’ve got plenty of copies of issues 1-4 in stock to get you hooked up on this one, and you can scoop them in-store to send off to get signed, or purchase at the links in the chat and on the site during the signing event.
Got books by James you’ve already bought that you’d like to get signed?
So, considering so many of our Third Eye Faithful are always on the cutting edge of what’s the best stuff in comics — we know a lot of you are already way hip to James’s stuff, and may have some of his projects already.
So, while you’re probably going to be lining up to scoop WYND, and some other recent releases, you may be sitting on some of James’s past hits like THE WOODS, MEMETIC, and more.
And, you want ’em signed, right? We can help, Third Eye Faithful!
For just a flat fee of $7 per book + shipping & handling (which varies depending on the amount of books), we’ll carefully pack, prepare, and ship off the books to James along with the other stock.
While at our in-store signings, we don’t require any charge to get books signed from home; we do have to charge a service charge for this long-distance signing, because there’s a good deal of labor on our part to ensure the books are safely organized, shipped off, and gotten to and from James for you.
Be one of the 1st 25 to pre-order Wynd #1 for the signing — and get a FREE Wynd gift limited to this event!
OK, Third Eye Faithful: so it’s NOT quite as awesome as lining you up outside our store before the event, and getting that awesome community vibe we all really love so much at Third Eye, but — we still want to give you the sense of fun and excitement that comes from being “first” for one of our events!
The 1st 25 preorders we get for any of the WYND packages above (whether it’s Cover A, Cover B, Cover C or the Bundle), will receive a special FREE gift with their order!
