One of the most crucial DEATH METAL tie-ins drops this week with TRINITY CRISIS, which is essentially DEATH METAL issue #3.5!

DC’s DEATH METAL has been one of the most exciting things to hit the DC Universe in a hot minute, and we’re loving every second of it, and this weeks TRINITY CRISIS may be one of the most important tie-ins to drop for the series yet!

Serving as a bridge between issues 3 & 4, this is essentially the big mid-series interlude, and features so much bigger-than-life cosmic DCU stuff — you’re gonna not wanna miss it!

With Superman freed from his New Apokolips prison, the classic Trinity lineup is reunited and ready to rock!

Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman amp up their power to launch an assault on Castle Bat, and that’s just the warm-up act! Three walking nightmares are hidden deep inside the fortress—but these Dark Multiverse versions of the Anti-Monitor, Superboy Prime, and Darkseid hold the key to humanity’s survival.

The Justice League have to face down their old nemeses, but will round two be the end for our heroes?

Wanna get caught up on the series? We’ve got all the issues of DEATH METAL, along with the tie-ins, in stock to get you current!

ULTRAMAN comes to the MARVEL UNIVERSE in the new RISE OF ULTRAMAN #1! And we are STOKED!

As huge fans of all thing kaiju at Third Eye, you know we’re pretty freakin’ pumped about the arrival of the new ULTRAMAN comic coming out of Marvel this week, and for good reason: it’s KILLER!

First off: Kyle Higgins, who has done wonders with BOOM’s MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS series, is a perfect choice to write this one, and he kills it on bringing all the things we love about the character to the Marvel U!

Secondly, the artwork by Franceso Manna is AMAZING, and a perfect fit, that’ll scratch your giant monster itch!

In darkness there lurks Kaiju – terrifying and unfathomable monsters. Between Kaiju and the rest of us stands the United Science Patrol!

But who are these enigmatic defenders, and how do they perform their miracles? Shin Hayata and Kiki Fuji have spent half a lifetime trying to find out – and their quest is about to drive them toward a decades-old dark secret and put them on a collision course with a mysterious warrior from beyond the stars!

Kyle Higgins (Mighty Morphin Power Rangers), Mat Groom (Self/Made) and Francesco Manna (AVENGERS) reimagine the classic origin of a pop culture icon as THE RISE OF ULTRAMAN begins!

DC’s BLACK LABEL masterpiece, BASKETFUL OF HEADS, from LOCKE & KEY creator JOE HILL drops in hardcover this week — and we cannot wait! Pure HORROR awesomeness!

One of the best releases of the last year has been the incredible HILL HOUSE line of comics from DC’s BLACK LABEL imprint, and the flagship title, BASKETFUL OF HEADS, is definitely our favorite!

Joe Hill, the horror mastermind behind NOS4A2 and Locke & Key, arrives at DC with the twisted tale of June Branch—trapped with four cunning criminals who have snatched her boyfriend for deranged reasons of their own.

Now she must fight for her life with the help of an impossible 8th-century Viking axe that can pass through a man’s neck in a single swipe—and leave the severed head still conscious and capable of supernatural speech.

Each disembodied head has a malevolent story of its own to tell, and it isn’t long before June finds herself in a desperate struggle to hack through their lies and manipulations…racing to save the man she loves before time runs out.

But is June Branch a woman fighting for her life—or a deranged axe murderer with a basketful of paranoid fantasies? The truth is even more horrifying than a basketful of heads. Collects Basketful of Heads #1-7.
