Third Eye Faithful, get ready: this February, one of our all-time favorite comic book creators is returning to Third Eye, and we could not be more stoked! We’ve been huge fans of Chip’s work for quite some time now, whether it’s his incredible Image Comics series SEX CRIMINALS, or his amazing Marvel work on series like PETER PARKER SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE, and more!
So, when we had the rare opportunity to get the one and only Mr. Zdarsky to Third Eye to sign what is looking to be his biggest release yet in DAREDEVIL #1 — we knew we had to jump at the chance!
Chip is one of those rare talents in comics that is literally the total package: his artwork is incredible, his writing is amazing, and he can effortlessly walk between the worlds of hilarious, mind-bending concepts like those seen in Sex Criminals to bigger-than-life Marvel magic that harkens back to the Marvel glory days of Simonson, Claremont, Shooter, and more.
Plus: it’s a very rare thing for Chip to make signing appearances, Third Eye Faithful, but he KNOWS that Third Eye has the most passionate, engaged, and enthusiastic comic book fans in the country — and that’s why he’s coming to kick off the Man Without Fear, his boldest work to date, with us!
And, you know what that means, right? We wanna see you lining up bright and early, and maybe even starting a Chip chant or two before doors open!
Holy crap: everything we’ve heard and seen on this book tells us one thing — this is the most exciting DAREDEVIL comic to come down the pipeline in ages, and we could not be more stoked to have Chip kicking it off with us at Third Eye!
The details surrounding the new Man Without Fear series are being kept tightly guarded by Marvel, because — well, let’s be real: there’s some BIG changes coming to the world of Matt Murdock, and they’re going to impact the Marvel Universe in a pretty massive way!
What we do know is that Chip himself is one of the biggest Daredevil fans to ever swing a billy club, and the peeks we’ve had at what he’s got shaking with the new DD series have us on the edge of our seats with excitement. Seriously, he’s crafting something that’s going to go down in history as one of those kind of DAREDEVIL — you know; the legendary kind!
Featuring artwork by the one and only Marco Checchetto, aka, one of the best darn artists working in superhero comics today – the new DAREDEVIL is very much a grounded-in-reality kind of superhero comic.
We’re talking hard-hitting — this is what a vigilante in the real world would look like kinda thing, and while we haven’t had a chance to dig deeper into the series, from what we’ve heard, we get some Miller / Mazzuchelli-kinda vibes on where this one is going ala BORN AGAIN!
Best of all, Third Eye Faithful, whether you were rabidly following the amazing DD run by CHARLES SOULE (like us!), or are brand new to reading DD, or maybe returning after not visiting Hell’s Kitchen for a bit — this is a fantastic place to get into the character and follow the title!
We’re super big fans of Zdarsky’s other projects, and past works as well, so we wanted to take a moment to spotlight some of the other great stuff he’s done that you can get signed on 2/9/19!
First off, we gotta start with one that many of you may already know: SEX CRIMINALS!
Sex Criminals is by far one of our favorite ongoing IMAGE series here at Third Eye, and Chip alongside Matt Fraction, is crafting a truly unique and innovative comic that reminds us every time we read it: this is why Third Eye comics exists. Comics like this.
It’s fun, it’s unique, and it’s something that can truly only be born out of comics.
What’s SEX CRIMINALS all about? Suzie’s just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon, and it turns out he has the same ability — well, imagine that! And sooner or later, they get around to using their gifts to do what we’d all do: rob a couple banks.
A bawdy and brazen sex comedy that’s as heartwarming as it is hilarious. This is a fantastic book, and with the recent announcement that it’s on it’s way to TV screens soon — you HAVE to start reading it now.
We’ll have all of the single issues, as well as the graphic novels, in stock for you to catch up on and get signed by Chip at our signing!
Another series by Chip that we feel many of you may already be very familiar with is his incredible run of PETER PARKER SPIDER-MAN, which brought us some of the most touching, and on point Spidey moments we’ve seen in quite some time!
Spider-Man is back in his friendly neighborhood!
The wall-crawling wonder returns to New York City, going back to basics for big heroics in the Big Apple while taking on threats old and new!
A crime ring is tightening around Spidey, and Ironheart could help him zero in on the source – if only she’d stop beating him up.
When Spider-Man’s old pal, the Human Torch, joins in on the trail of terrifying tech, the web-head and flame-brain will be led to…Wilson Fisk!
And they’ll find out that the former Kingpin of Crime is still a force to be reckoned with! Plus: What is jolly J. Jonah Jameson up to these days? And Spider-Man’s newest ally, the Mason, falls prey to the Vulture!
With Reed and Sue Richards gone and presumed dead, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm reunite in a bid to find their new place in the Marvel Universe.
But something is wrong with the Human Torch, and only the Thing can help him! And what monumental secret has Victor Von Doom been hiding – and how will it completely change the lives of Ben and Johnny?!
Prepare for things to go Multiversal as the Thing and the Torch explore the Fate of the Four! It’s the reunion you’ve been waiting for – well, half of it, at least – in the world’s new greatest comic magazine!
For those of you hooked on the stellar RIVERDALE TV show, we know you’re all big Jughead fans (and so are we!), so you know you gotta read the incredible JUGHEAD series that Chip did alongside SQUIRREL GIRL’s very own ERICA HENDERSON a few years back!
This book was a blast, and we loved every second of it, as Chip’s unique knack for combining humor and heartwarming storytelling brought everyone’s favorite hamburger fan to life!
Riverdale High provides a quality education and quality hot lunches, but when one of those is tampered with, Jughead Jones swears vengeance!
Well, I mean, he doesn’t “swear.” This is still Archie Comics after all.
Another big-time favorite of ours by Chip is the sci-fi epic KAPTARA, which takes MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE-style action figure adventure and blends it with humor and wit to make for one crazy awesome sci-fi read!
Keith Kanga crash lands on KAPTARA, a world filled with danger and weird danger and dangerous weirdos!
And if he can’t survive, then Earth, the place where YOU live, is doomed!
And, folks, we cannot forget all about HOWARD THE DUCK!
Hot off the pages of the… post credits scene at the end of.. well, you know, THAT movie… HOWARD THE DUCK has returned!
Join him as he takes on the weird cases that ONLY a talking duck can crack as the Marvel Universe’s resident private investigator.
Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones guide you through Howard’s new world as he takes on the Black Cat, and some oh-so-mysterious forces from OUTER SPACE!
Seriously tho: this Howard series was freakin’ great, and if there was anybody who can make Howard hilarious and awesome it’s Chip.
