One of our favorite new IMAGE COMICS series of 2017 has gotta be CURSE WORDS, and the stellar work of CHARLES SOULE (DAREDEVIL, IVX, ASTONISHING X-MEN, and more) and RYAN BROWNE (GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS) continues to impress us with each issue!
When we saw that our pals Charles and Ryan were doing a big signing tour to celebrate CURSE WORDS, we knew we had to make Third Eye a stop, and luckily enough, Charles and Ryan were able to fit a Maryland stop into the tour!
And, guess what, Third Eye Faithful: that Maryland stop is right here at Third Eye Annapolis! They’ll be bringing the Curse Words van right to Third Eye, and signing your copies of the brand new CURSE WORDS VOL.1 graphic novel (along with all their other projects they’ve worked on!)
What’s the scoop on CURSE WORDS?
CURSE WORDS is an incredible read, and it does that killer job that most Image books do of blending a few unique genres into one incredible read.
In this brand new ongoing series from Charles Soule (Inhumans vs. X-Men, Letter 44, Poe Dameron) and Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts), we’re introduced to a cast of characters that may be the most endearing since that first issue of SAGA!
A wizard has appeared in New York City, and he’s casting wonderful spells, getting famous, getting rich — and it’s all good, right?
Well, not quite.
See, that wizard that everyone loves and worships? He’s actually not the altruistic good guy with a cool haircut that he seems.
He’s actually a pretty evil wizard, and some pretty evil things are on the way.
Curse Words is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of darkness, light, and.. magic!
If Harry Potter went horribly wrong, and grew up to fool the world that he didn’t — he’d be Curse Words’s lead, Wizord!
Other Projects by Charles Soule & Ryan Browne
This mini-series has been incredible, as it chronicles just what went down between the Inhumans, the X-Men, and of course, the fate of Cyclops, that have led us to the events of IvX!
We’ve got all the issues & the graphic novel in stock to get you hooked up, so you can get ’em signed on 8/5/17 by Charles during our Curse Words signing!
One of our favorite series in the last few years is the totally surreal, and totally awesome GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS from RYAN BROWNE, which is a perfect example of why we love Ryan’s art so much!
GOD HATES ASTRONAUTS follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships.
Unfortunately, for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank-robbing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing.
Not so much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to RoboCop and Die Hard.
Another incredible piece of work from Charles Soule was his iconic DEATH OF WOLVERINE series, which.. well, killed the one and only Logan.. and put him down for quite some time!
This iconic 4-part miniseries is now available in graphic novel, and we’ll have plenty of copies on hand for you to grab and get signed by Charles.
Another incredible favorite of our’s by Charles is his incredible LETTER 44 series.
In LETTER 44, on Inauguration Day, newly elected President Stephen Blades hoped to tackle the most critical issues facing the nation: war, the economy, and a failing health care system. But in a letter penned by the outgoing President, Blades learns the truth that redefines “critical”: seven years ago, NASA discovered alien presence in the asteroid belt, and kept it a secret from the world. A stealth mission crewed by nine astronauts was sent to make contact, and they’re getting close-assuming they survive the long journey to reach their destination.
Today, President-elect Blades has become the most powerful man on the planet. This planet.
We have all of the LETTER 44 graphic novels, along with single issues, in stock for you to scoop and get signed by Charles on 8/5/17
And, you totally need to check out Charles’s fantastic work on the current run of DAREDEVIL, which has been some of the best stuff we’ve read with the character to date!
In DAREDEVIL VOL.1 CHINATOWN, Daredevil is back in black and back on his home turf as Matt Murdock begins a fresh life once again!
He may have returned to New York City, but Matt’s on a different side of the law now, with a job in the District Attorney’s office. And he finds his new career quite the challenge when he locks horns with local crime lord, Tenfingers, duplicitous founder of the Church of the Sheltering Hands.
Could this be a job for Daredevil?
Fighting crime in the shadows, prosecuting bad guys in the light – it’s a whole new chapter for the Man Without Fear, and it comes with a protégé.
Welcome to Hell, Blindspot – you’ll soon find out that life with DD comes with a heaping helping of Hand ninjas out for your blood!
For the last couple of years, Charles has been doing an amazing job of building the world of the Inhumans, and turning both the new and classic INHUMAN characters into one of Marvel’s most interesting line-ups.
We’ll have the graphic novels of INHUMAN, ALL NEW INHUMANS, and UNCANNY INHUMANS, all available, for you to check out and get signed by Charles, along with the single issues as well!
One of our personal favorites by Charles is his stellar run of SHE-HULK from a few years back, which had gorgeous art, and a great sense of humor that made it one of our favorite takes on the character ever done.
In Charles’s SHE-HULK, Jennifer Walters is…the She-Hulk! A stalwart member of the Avengers and the FF, she’s also a killer attorney with a pile of degrees and professional respect.
But juggling cases and kicking bad guy butt is a little more complicated than she anticipated.
With a new practice, a new paralegal and a mounting number of super villains she’s racking up as personal enemies, She- Hulk might have bitten off more than she can chew!
When Kristoff Vernard, the son of Victor von Doom seeks extradition, it’s an international jailbreak, She-Hulk style!
And She-Hulk and Hellcat must uncover the secrets of the Blue File – a conspiracy that touches the entire Marvel Universe! Someone important to She-Hulk is killed, and she won’t let it stand…but who can she trust? She-Hulk takes on her most terrifying role yet: defendant!
We’ll have the graphic novels of Charles’s She-Hulk run on-hand for you to snag and get signed!
One thing you may not be aware of is that Charles has done a ton of great work on Marvel’s STAR WARS line, whether it’s his incredible LANDO mini-series, his stellar OBI-WAN AND ANAKIN mini-series, or the currently ongoing POE DAMERON series, they’re all fantastic reads!
We’ll have the single issues, and graphic novels of all of Charles’s STAR WARS work on hand as well for you to take a peek at and get signed during our big IvX signing event!
We know you guys and gals love lining up early, and having fun waiting to meet your favorite creators, and we like encouraging the totally fun and totally rad community vibe it brings.
And with a signing this big – we know there’s some of you who will want to pop up a tent – so we’re hooking you up with something extra cool for lining up early and hanging out!
