We are STOKED to announce our first Third Eye Creator Signing Tour featuring MATT MINER (GWAR ORGASMAGGEDON, CRITICAL HIT) and CLAY MCCORMACK (REDLINE) for their new book POSER.. What does that mean? It means that Matt and Clay will be signing at ALL THREE Third Eye locations! Yeah, we told you this was big.
Matt Miner is a New York Times featured comic book writer, pit bull rescuer, and aging punk living in Queens, NY with his wife and millions of dogs. Matt’s first series Liberator is a flagship title from the perpetually buzzworthy Black Mask Studios, released to critical acclaim in the publisher’s debut slate of comics. Matt is well known for his politically charged and punk rock infused work including GWAR: Orgasmageddon for Dynamite Entertainment, Toe Tag Riot, and Critical Hit for Black Mask Studios, and Poser for Waxwork Comics.
Clay McCormack is a veteran artist of the independent comics scene, and in addition to Poser he is the artist on Redline from Oni Press. He has also had work featured on the pages and covers of books by IDW, Image, Boom, Sean Murphy’s Cafe Racer, and Heavy Metal Magazine. His previous work also includes being the writer, artist, and creator of the multi-award winning online graphic novel Dead Meat, he’s seen the Exorcist 167 times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time he sees it.

What’s the scoop on POSER?
Anyone who has been to our stores know that we are BIG fans of all things 80s punk and horror. Heck, we even have a section of the store dedicated to it. That’s why when Poser appeared on our radar, we knew it was something we had to get behind!
We’ve all heard it called out before. Maybe at a show. Maybe toward a shady character. Maybe you’ve called someone it before.
Someone who tries desperately to fit into a profile, or scene that they are not apart of.
Matt Miner and Clay Mccormick take the concept of a Poser, turned it into an urban legend, and unleashed him into a world that of course, has shunned him. Will the Poser wreck havock on current day Las Angeles as he did in Redondo Beach in 1982? Or will a group of unlikely punks take him down before it’s too late?
POSER is a love letter to the underground Los Angeles punk scene, that explores the concepts of “sex, drugs and rock and roll” through the captivating lens of an 80s slasher flick. One of the COOLEST things is its accompanying vinyl soundtrack.
We know you guys and gals love lining up early, and having fun waiting to meet your favorite creators, and we like encouraging the totally fun and totally rad community vibe it brings.
So, we’ve put together a really cool free giveaway for the first 10 of you who line up for our big POSER SIGNING at either location!
