What’s going on, Third Eye Faithful? We know you’re all coming down from the Holiday season, and you’re probably wondering “can the Third Eye team get anymore rad with their events?”
Oh yes. Yes we can!
We are holding our very FIRST three person signing, and it’s definitely one you’re not going to want to miss!
When Rafer came to us with his new book GRUMBLE, we just knew it was going to be something special. We are already huge fans of his work on HARBINGER: RENEGADE and MODERN FANTASY – so we were super stoked when he agreed to come sign at the flagship store! Not only that, but being the awesome guy that he is – he asked if he could bring some friends along to sign with him.
Who are they? None other than Jason Jordan and Kristen Gudsnuk!
You may know of Jason from a little book series called LUTHER STRODE and if you don’t – you need to. It’s easily one of the best books out of the last 10 years. This isn’t Jason’s first rodeo – but we know every time he walks through our doors.
Kristen really struck gold with the awesome HENCHGIRL, and also teamed up with Rafer for MODERN FANTASY. This will be her first Third Eye signing as well, and we are super pumped to have her in!
We’re so excited to have not one, not two, but THREE incredible talents coming to join us, and we know that you all are too! That’s why we’re asking you to join us Saturday, 1/26/19 from 11AM-1PM for a signing you won’t forget!
If you know anything about us – you know we love a book that leaves us wondering “what did we just read, and when can we get more?”. That’s exactly the kind of book that GRUMBLE is.
Enter Eddie – a low rent hustler who magically gets turned into a pug when a scheme goes wrong.
But wait – it gets better. Turns out, Eddie’s got a long lost daughter named Tala who also happens to be part demon. When she finds herself at odds with mega powerful inter-dimensional forces, she goes to father (now a pug) for help. This goes about as well as you’d think, which is disastrous! Eddie and Tala have to put their differences aside, or the fate of the world could be in danger. That is, if they don’t kill each other first.
Featuring absolutely gorgeous artwork from Mike Norton (REVIVAL) and eye grabbing colors from Marissa Luise (HEX WIVES), this book is a wild ride and then some – and we are on board! You can grab issues 1 and 2 right now at any of our stores!
One thing we love is good Team Up story, and Rafer hit the money spot with HARBINGER RENEGADE.
Six months ago, a secret team of renegade whistleblowers leaked the existence of these extraordinarily dangerous individuals to a stunned world. Today, all across the country, crude, DIY psiot activation attempts have left hundreds brain damaged…or worse. The emergence of a new psiot in a community often leads to riots and mass violence. Gun sales are through the roof.
America is terrified of what could happen next.
With this revolutionary upheaval now in motion, Kris Hathaway, John “Torque” Torkelson, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and Peter Stanchek are about to discover their calling. Together, the HARBINGER RENEGADES are moving from town to town, building their ranks, and subverting authority one mind at a time…and setting out to prove once and for all that behind their power, there has always been a purpose.
Our favorite works by JUSTIN JORDAN
One of our favorite works by Justin is the series LUTHER STRODE, which is in it’s third and final act currently with the LEGACY OF LUTHER STRODE!
Luther Strode is your average slightly nerdy, extremely enthusiastic comic-loving fan trying to graduate high school, and make the girl he digs so much notice him — while not getting his butt kicked along the way.
One day, Luther discovers an ad in an old comic book in the style of those Charles Atlas GET RIPPED ads, and sends away for the regimen to turn himself into a musclebound He-Man.
What he gets instead is an instructional manual from a murder cult as old as mankind that does everything it promised — and more.
Unaware that the instructions he’s following are turning him into a unique breed of super-predator, and indoctrinating him into a dynasty that includes killers ranging from JACK THE RIPPER to GENGHIS KHAN, Luther does what any young man gifted with supernatural powers would do: he puts on a costume and decides to fight crime.
It’s just — well, sometimes he hits a little too hard, and sometimes, the thirst for blood is a bit too strong.
This is Luther Strode, and we love it. Imagine if Mark Millar’s KICK-ASS crossed paths with DRAGON BALL Z, and combined into one.
You know the way the line goes, right? With great power, comes great re–… no, no wait, that’s not quite the one we’re looking for.
With great power comes a terrible curse.
What would you do to save your small, forgotten town? Joe Chamberlain would do absolutely anything. Including making a deal with the devil. That’s where the terrible curse comes in; now, Joe is cursed to become Brimstone, wielding the power of fire and destruction.
Seeking vengeance, Joe must find and destroy the demon he made the deal with that made him Brimstone; but can he control his fiery powers and leave the town he was trying to save intact? Or will the pain and power rip him apart from the inside out?
Our favorite works by KRISTEN GUDSNUK
Mary hates her job, works long hours for little pay, her coworkers are jerks and her boss is a nightmare – but he’s a nightmare with a twist. He’s a super-villain! Mary lives in the shadow of her superhero parents and sister, in a job she can’t stand, with a super-villain boss, all the while battling her own conscience and working as a HENCHGIRL.
Clever and hilarious, HENCHGIRL takes the classic pieces of what you love about superhero comics and turns them around in a way that’s going to make you laugh and keep turning the pages!
If you love adventure, MODERN FANTASY is a read you’re not going to wanna miss! Sage, a young Ranger woman comes to a new city with dreams of adventure and links up with a drug-dealing reptilian wizard, and a dwarf maiden to navigate a a modern-day quest to save the world while also living an everyday life of student loan debt, and crummy day jobs.
Danger lurks for this band of roommates when one of their significant others is taken by criminals and it’s up to the modern-day adventurers to rescue him!
MODERN FANTASY seamlessly blends together a high-fantasy D&D-like adventure with the modern day world, and we can’t get enough of it!
