Get in at ground zero for the rebirth of the IMAGE COMICS superhero universe with RADIANT BLACK #1 — do not miss this chance to be a part of a historic new era!

Third Eye Faithful, if there’s one things we love about comics, it’s the constant evolution and change that happens throughout not just our favorite books, but the industry itself.

In the early ’90s, the superstars of MARVEL united to form IMAGE COMICS. Spawn, Wildcats, Youngblood, and many more all were born, and a raw, vibrant, and over-the-top new superhero world was created that didn’t follow any pre-existing rules or concepts.

It was an incredible time to be reading comics, and then, again, in the early-2000s, with the arrival of a little book known as WALKING DEAD, and shortly after, books like CHEW, MORNING GLORIES, and then yes: SAGA, IMAGE once again re-invented the game, and became THE definitive spot for quality, genre-defying comic book storytelling.

Now, they’re about to usher in another exciting new moment, as they combine the electric energy of those early IMAGE shared universe years with the high concept, story-driven approach we’ve grown to love over the last decade, to reintroduce the concept of a shared IMAGE superhero universe, and it all begins with RADIANT BLACK #1!

We’ve seen the stage being set, be it INVINCIBLE, SPAWN, or most recently CROSSOVER, but RADIANT BLACK is going to be the book that sets it off, and we CANNOT wait to dig into it!

For fans of INVINCIBLE and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comes a brand-new ONGOING SERIES from acclaimed writer KYLE HIGGINS (Ultraman, C.O.W.L.) and artist MARCELO COSTA that reinvents superheroes for a new generation!

Nathan Burnett has just turned thirty, and things aren’t great: He’s working (and failing) at two jobs, his credit card debt is piling up, and his only move… is moving back home with his parents.

But when Nathan discovers and unlocks the ethereal, cosmic RADIANT, he’s given the power to radically change his fortunes!

There’s just one problem: The powers don’t belong to him. And the COSMIC BEINGS who created them want them back… by any means necessary.

FUTURE STATE DARK DETECTIVE #3 leads the way for another strong week of FUTURE STATE releases!

We’re loving the heck out of FUTURE STATE, and we cannot wait to see where things go next in what is easily one of our favorites of the line: DARK DETECTIVE!

In this issue, Bruce Wayne meets the next Batman!

As the dark detective makes his move to put an end to the villainous Magistrate once and for all, the man who once wore the cowl encounters the next Batman—and these two have some questions for each other!

Fists will fly as this explosive meeting erupts in the skies over Gotham…but with the clock ticking, can Bruce finish what he started and unlock the secrets of the fascist surveillance that plagues his city?

And in GRIFTERS part two, the lucky streak that Cole Cash and Luke Fox have enjoyed just hit a brick wall in the form of the Huntress! The over-the-top adventure in the gutters of Gotham City concludes in the most bone-crushing fashion possible!

HAHA #1 returns with an all new 2nd printing featuring sick new cover art!

A comic about scary clowns? We’re IN! And, heck, so were all of you! In fact, this one was a total sell-out at all Third Eyes, due to the sheer popularity (and we ordered a ton too!), and now it’s back with an all new 2nd printing!

ICE CREAM MAN writer W. MAXWELL PRINCE brings his signature style of one-shot storytelling to the world of clowns-and he’s invited SOME OF THE COMIC INDUSTRY’S BEST ARTISTS to join him for the ride.

HAHA is a genre-jumping, throat-lumping look at the sad, scary, hilarious life of those who get paid to play the fool-but these ain’t your typical jokers.

With issues drawn by VANESA DEL REY (REDLANDS), GABRIEL WALTA (Vision), ROGER LANGRIDGE (Thor), and more, HAHA peeks under the big top, over the rainbow, and even inside a balloon to tell a wide-ranging slew of stories about “funny” men and women, proving that some things are so sad you just have to laugh.
