What’s going on, Third Eye Faithful. While Summer has given us releases as hot and unpredictable as DC weather, we gotta admit, we’re ready for the Fall. That’s because not only does the temperature get cooler – so do our events. For the past two years DC has been literally changing history with their iconic REBIRTH relaunch. We’ve seen our favorite heroes deconstructed, broken and rebuilt within this defining period in comic book history. So when we got the chance to bring in BENJAMIN PERCY, the prolific writer behind some of our FAVORITE stories in the timeline, we all on board!
Prior to his illustrious career in the world comics, Ben was a professor at various colleges, and wrote four novels. He began writing for DC Comics in 2014, for a little book called DETECTIVE COMICS. After that he took off, writing iconic story-lines for Green Arrow and Teen Titans Rebirth runs. We gotta tell you though, our favorite stuff is his current NIGHTWING Rebirth run. His ability to create such unique, complex worlds that challenge what we know about our favorite characters is mind melding.
We know greatness when we see it, and Ben is it. That’s why we are THRILLED to welcome him in for his first Third Eye signing! You’ll be able to get your key issues signed, chat a little with the mastermind behind some of the best Rebirth runs, and of course hang with the Third Eye Fam. New to Ben’s work? No problem! We’ve included some of our favorite works below!
Through the years, we’ve seen Dick Grayson carry many titles. Robin. Agent 37. Batman. Nightwing.
Since the 2016 reboot of NIGHTWING, we’ve seen him dismantle threat after threat with impressive athleticism, detective skill and an equally impressive (and revered) backside. In the Bleeding Edge arc, beginning in issue #44, a new type of terror descends upon his current home Bludhaven – one that he has never faced before.
The Dark Web
We all know that Dick isn’t the most tech savvy of the Bat Family, so when an anonymous entity causes a Subway car full of cellular devices to EXPLODE – it’s clear that circus tricks aren’t gonna help him out this time.
We LOVE writers that explore how technology has evolved and the sometimes toxic dependency man has on it. Ben takes us on a journey straight out of his 2017 novel The Dark Web and gives us a Black Mirror-like spin on the world of Nightwing!
Pick up NIGHTWING VOL 1 Better Than Batman to see where it all started, or grab NIGHTWING #44 to jump right into Percy’s The Bleeding Edge arc at all Third Eye locations!
For years Oliver Queen has struggled to balance being a political figure for the disenfranchised of Star City, the heir to a capitalist empire and a superhero Robin Hood to the weak.
In Rebirth, we see Ollie back to his political roots, fighting to protect the city and people he loves – even at the detriment of himself.
But Green Arrow’s life will be forever changed as he is betrayed by those closest to him.
A budding relationship with Black Canary forces Ollie to confront the fact that he can’t fight “the man” if he is “the man.”
And one by one, his friends desert him-and all the money in the world won’t bring them back when he needs them most.
Believe us when we say: Ben Percy knows how to write some of the smartest, compelling stories of this generation. You can pick up GREEN ARROW #1 at all Third Eye locations!
If there is one thing Ben does seamlessly, it’s connect the old school to the new, and that’s exactly what goes down in his unforgettable TEEN TITANS run
Did we say recruit? We meant KIDNAPPED.
With veteran Teen Titans members Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy skeptical about the sanity and competence of Damian, are they ready to call the young Robin leader?
You can pick up a copy of TEEN TITANS #1 Damian Knows Best at all Third Eye locations!
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.
So, we’ve put together a really cool free giveaway for the first 25 of you who line up for our big BENJAMIN PERCY signing!
