HELLBLAZER RISE & FALL #1 on the DC Black Label imprint drops this week, and delivers THE best Hellblazer since the Vertigo days — do NOT sleep on this one!

From the writer of DCEASED, Tom Taylor, and the artist of THE BOYS, Darick Robertson!

Third Eye Faithful, we’re all children of the ’80s and ’90s here, and we grew up in the ’90s reading a TON of Vertigo books, and one of those was the incredible HELLBLAZER series featuring superstars like GARTH ENNIS, BRIAN AZZARELLO, JAMIE DELANO and more.

And, we gotta tell ya: it’s been a minute since a series has really lived up to those grisly Vertigo classics — but this weeks RISE AND FALL, from DC’s BLACK LABEL imprint, explodes this week at Third Eye, and we’re super pumped to tell you all about it!

A billionaire falls out of the sky and is gruesomely skewered on a church spire. Bizarrely, Angel Wings are attached to his back. More follow until, hallelujah, it’s raining businessmen.

Detective Aisha Bukhari is stumped by this, until she’s visited by her childhood friend, occult investigator John Constantine. DC’s Hellblazer discovers a link between the falling elite and a shocking moment in his and Aisha’s misspent youth.

How do these killings tie to the first death on John’s hands?

How does this involve heaven and hell?

Even if this is kind of John’s fault, will Constantine be happy to let a few more rich bastards fall from the sky, like a vindictive Robin Hood?

It’s an all-new DC Black Label mystery starring John Constantine in his very first tale spun by acclaimed writer Tom Taylor (DCeased) and artist Darick Robertson (The Boys)!

Make sure you get the HELLBLAZER RISE & FALL #1 Cover B by BATMAN DAMNED artist LEE BERMEJO!

We LOVE this cover B variant to HELLBLAZER RISE & FALL by superstar LEE BERMEJO (BATMAN DAMNED), and you can snag one of these at normal cover price while supplies last this week at Third Eye!

EMPYRE #6 concludes the incredible hit MARVEL event, and sets the stage for the KING IN BLACK!

Now, EMPYRE comes to its close, and takes us into one of the most anticipated Marvel events since the INFINITY GAUNTLET: the KING IN BLACK!

In EMPYRE #6, there can be only one King of Space—and it’s the last liege standing!

But as combat rages on, the clock ticks down to catastrophe! Will the ultimate interstellar weapon fry planet Earth before or after all sentient life on the planet is wiped out?

The Avengers and the Fantastic Four are tested as never before—as EMPYRE comes to a pulse-pounding finish!

But Malik’s obsession with the gods will push his crew into the darkest reaches of space, bringing them face to face with a threat unlike anything they’ve ever imagined – unless the rogue agent on their trail can stop them first…

GRENDEL KY #1 kicks off a must-read horror crime read that’s like SOUTHERN BASTARDS or NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN meets THE WICKER MAN!

For two generations, the rural hill town of Grendel, Kentucky has honored its Faustian bargain with the monster living in its abandoned coal mine: a human sacrifice every season in return for agrarian prosperity the likes of which this rocky region had never before seen (including its greatest cash crop: the dankest weed in the land).

When one town elder breaks this pact, Grendel’s only hope is that its prodigal daughter will return home to face down the creature of her nightmares-and bring her all-female biker gang with her.

KAMI GARCIA & GABRIEL PICOLO reunite on their next TEEN TITANS graphic novel, with TEEN TITANS: BEAST BOY – a follow up to last year’s RAVEN!

We gotta tell you: one of the true standouts of the DC INK line-up has gotta be TEEN TITANS RAVEN, and we’re so pumped to see the next in the series arriving with this weeks BEAST BOY!

Author Kami Garcia and artist Gabriel Picolo, the creative duo behind the New York Times, USA Today, and Publishers Weekly bestseller Teen Titans: Raven, take you on a journey of self-discovery and acceptance, while reminding us the value of true friendship—especially when life gets wild.
Garfield Logan has spent his entire life being overlooked.

Even in a small town like Eden, Georgia, the 17-year-old with green streaks in his hair can’t find a way to stand out—and the clock is ticking. Senior year is almost over.

If Gar doesn’t find a way to impress the social elite at Bull Creek High School, he will never know what it’s like to matter.

Gar’s best friends, Stella and Tank, can’t understand why he cares what other people think, and they miss their funny, pizza-loving, video game-obsessed best friend.


Then Gar accepts a wild dare out of the blue.

It impresses the popular kids, and his social status soars.

But other things are changing, too. Gar grows six inches overnight. His voice drops, and suddenly, he’s stronger and faster.

He’s finally getting everything he wanted, but his newfound popularity comes at a price. Gar has to work harder to impress his new friends.

The dares keep getting bigger, and the stakes keep getting higher.


When Gar realizes the extent of his physical changes, he has to dig deep and face the truth about himself—and the people who truly matter—before his life spirals out of control.
