JOKER 80TH ANNIVERSARY DROPS THIS WEEK — AND IT’S LOADED WITH KILLER CONTENT, AND FEATURING INCREDIBLE COVERS!

We are SO stoked about the upcoming JOKER 80TH ANNIVERSARY special, and cannot wait to dig into it this week at Third Eye!

Third Eye Faithful, by now, we think it’s pretty obvious: Mr. J holds a pretty special place in all of our hearts here at Third Eye. 

Maybe it’s the nostalgia we feel from our first year opening happening to also be the same year as the release of the iconic Christopher Nolan DARK KNIGHT film, featuring Heath Ledger’s incredible portrayal of the Joker, or maybe it’s just from growing up surrounded by so many great Joker tales through the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s.

Either way: we love the Clown Prince of Crime, and we’re totally stoked to help celebrate his return to the spotlight with a special one-shot courtesy of our friends at DC Comics!

There’s a TON of awesome covers for this one, and we’ve put together some special cover bundles to help you score ’em all!

You can check out the full gallery of covers, as well as our special bundle offers here.

ADVENTUREMAN #1 from SEX CRIMINALS / HAWKEYE writer MATT FRACTION delivers the goods with superstar artist TERRY DODSON!

We are SO stoked about this one. First off: Fraction is one of the true greats of modern comics — whether it’s his work on creator-owned hits like SEX CRIMINALS and CASANOVA or his mainstream work on books like HAWKEYE, he’s a genuine force, and we love his stuff!

Combine that with the artistic chops of superstar TERRY DODSON, and you’ve got yourself a true dream team!

Revisit how the legend of the greatest pulp hero of them all, ADVENTUREMAN, ended in a heartbreaking CLIFFHANGER with our hero facing execution at the vile hand of his ultra-nemesis BARON BIZARRE on the eve of the MACABRAPOCALYPSE…or did it?!?

Eighty years after his apparent demise, single mother Claire and her Adventurefan son Tommy seem to be the only two people alive that remember the thrilling ADVENTUREMAN sagas…but from that memory burns THE SPARK OF RESURRECTION! WHERE HIS STORY ENDED…HER STORY BEGINS!

This sense-obliterating, earth-shaking, imagination-quaking adventure that spans generations comes to you from MATT FRACTION (SEX CRIMINALS, Hawkeye) and TERRY & RACHEL DODSON (X-Men/Fantastic Four, RED ONE)!!!

ARTEMIS & ASSASSIN #2 continues the killer new series featuring rising star artist MEGHAN HETRICK!

We LOVED the first issue of this one, and we know a lot of you may have missed it, because it came out right before the shutdowns began… so if you did miss it, snag it next time you visit Third Eye!

Charged with carrying important plans about the invasion of Normandy to the Allied troops, Virginia’s death would have a cataclysmic effect on WWII as we know it. 

Written by Stephanie Phillips (Butcher of Paris, DESCENDENT), with art by Meghan Hetrick and Francesca Fantini, colors by Lauren Affe, and letters by Troy Peteri, ARTEMIS AND THE ASSASSIN is a pulpy adventure story about the cost of changing history.
