SAT 11/17/18: Local Comic Shop Day 2018 at Third Eye!
Published September 20th, 2018
Third Eye Faithful: We’ve gotta tell you. When we started this crazy journey 10 years ago, we always knew we had something special – but we never thought it would be as big as it is now. A LOT of that has to do with the support of or local community, which we EMBRACE with open arms!
It also means that we get to celebrate one of our FAVORITE days of the year: LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY, A one day special extravaganza where we invite you to join us in celebrating everything that makes the idea of the comic shop so darn great.
And, we’d be absolutely flattered if you’d come and join your Third Eye family for some Local Comic Shop Day fun!
Local Comic Shop Day is a nationwide celebration of what makes the idea of having a local comic shop in your neighborhood so darn great! Every year, the publishers pool their efforts as hundreds of independently owned comic book stores across the world unite to celebrate the unique impact that local comic shops have in their local communities and more!
It’s also a very special day to score some very limited releases that are ONLY available on LOCAL COMIC SHOP DAY! These are special items produced exclusively for Local Comic Shop Day, and we gotta say: the publishers really pulled out the stops for 2018!
Local Comic Shop Day Releases!
We’ll have TONS of limited edition, exclusive releases available in-store only on 11/17, and we’ve put together a gallery below to showcase just some of the great offerings available.
Please take note that LCSD Product is limited to stock on hand and available on a first come, first served basis. We are unable to take holds, phone or mail-orders.
Due to product allocations, some items may be extremely limited, and in the case of items that are one per store, we may raffle the item off free of charge, or determine another way to give everyone a fair chance to get their hands on it. Stay tuned to our Facebook page here for frequent updates on LCSD and more!
More to be added as it becomes available
You know no Third Eye event would be complete without our AWESOME creator guests! Well, we’ve got not only one – but TWO creators coming to join us for Local Comic Shop Day: Ed Brisson & Matthew Rosenberg!
Both have been absolutely killing the game lately; with Ed telling one of the best X-Men stories we’ve read in a while in EXTERMINATION, and Matthew working his magic in NEW MUTANTS: DEAD SOULS. Now, they’re teaming up to bring us even more X-Goodness with UNCANNY X-MEN #1.
In this new series, THE CHILDREN OF THE ATOM ARE BACK! The flagship X-Men series that started it all is back and better than ever! Starting with a mysterious and tragic disappearance, the X-Men are drawn into what might be…their final adventure?!
The coolest part? You’ll be able to pick up the Local Comic Shop Day EXCLUSIVE cover with gorgeous artwork by Mike Deodato! You can meet both Ed & Matthew, get your EXCLUSIVE Local Comic Shop Day variant of UNCANNY X-MEN #1 signed and stick around for the rest of the LCSD magic!
ANNAPOLIS – 11AM – 1PM
RICHMOND – 6PM – 7PM

So for ONE DAY ONLY we’re opening the floodgates and taking 20% off ALL back issues in the back issue bin! That means not only the books in the bins, but all of the key issues we’ve got displayed on our wall as well!
If you’ve been holding off on a key issue or three, now is your chance to stock up because WHO KNOWS when we’ll be doing something like this again, if ever!
Another very special treat we’re bringing for you at Local Comic Shop Day is we’re breaking out our variant boxes… and, yeah, we’ve got A LOT of those — and guess what: they’re all going to be $5.00 each!
.We can’t guarantee what’s in the boxes (or that we still have the totally sweet Ross cover of STAR WARS #1 floating around in there still), but we can tell you this: over 20 long boxes of variants for just $5.00 each — you can’t go wrong!
Yes, you read that right. This wasn’t the world’s longest typo. THIS IS REAL LIFE.

So, we’re going to take some of the time (money) out of your hunt, and raffle off a chance to win a FREE 100 pack of ComiCare Current Size bags and boards every month from Jaunary 2019 – December 2019!
All you have to do is come in and you’ll be entered in. Easy peasy. Good luck!
