Third Eye Faithful, we’re huge fans of writer James Tynion IV, who you may know from smash hits like the recent JUSTICE LEAGUE run with Scott Snyder, the killer BATMAN / TMNT crossover, and his epic run on DETECTIVE COMICS!

So, when we saw that James would be launching a KILLER new creator-driven BOOM STUDIOS series with SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN.. we knew we had to do something special to celebrate!

So, we’re bringing James not just to ONE Third Eye location, but to TWO Third Eye locations, to sign copies of his brand new series SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, along with his other past projects as well!

What’s the scoop on SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN?

This awesome new series, in the vein of IT and STRANGER THINGS, delivers a brutal, and uncompromising chiller that will leave you on the edge of your seat!

In SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, when the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless.

Most children never return, but the ones that do have terrible stories-impossible stories of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows.

Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to see what they can see.

Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it MUST be done.

Picture JOSS WHEDON’S Buffy the Vampire Slayer if she was operating out of Derry in IT, and that sums up the feel very well!

Other Projects by James Tynion IV!

Where else could we start than the blockbuster JUSTICE LEAGUE series that’s been blowing our minds since issue #1?

Seriously, this may be one of the best runs of JL yet and as co-writer alongside Scott Snyder,  James Tynion is doing an amazing job!

Snag the trade paperbacks, or the single issues, both in stock now, and get ’em signed by James at Third Eye on 9/7 and 9/8!

Spinning out of the cataclysmic events of Dark Nights: Metal and JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE, the core members of the Justice League-Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, the Flash and more-are reunited in all-new adventures! The League was forced to make an impossible decision…and now it’s time to face the consequences!

The returning Martian Manhunter struggles to protect the team from an incoming threat that will shatter the world as they know it, while a familiar face strikes out on a dark path…This new title collects JUSTICE LEAGUE #1-7!


Another must-read by James is his long, incredible run of the DC Rebirth DETECTIVE COMICS, which began with issue #934, and ran until nearly issue #1000!

We’ve got all the single issues, as well as the trade paperbacks, collecting the run in stock to hook you up!

Batman puts together his own team of Gotham City vigilantes in this great new starting-point graphic novel, BATMAN – DETECTIVE COMICS VOL. 1: RISE OF THE BATMEN, from DC Rebirth!

An elite fighting force modeled after the Dark Knight has invaded the streets of Gotham. Their armor, weaponry and surveillance equipment are based on Batman’s tech and tactics, but they’re far beyond anything he’s ever seen. And while these Batmen’s motives remain a mystery, their targets are all too clear…

They’re gunning for Gotham’s vigilantes.

Batman knows he can’t face this foe alone, and neither can the crime-fighters caught in the crossfire. So with Batwoman—secretly Bruce Wayne’s cousin, Kate Kane—as his general, he’s organizing the next generation of Gotham heroes into an army.

Tim Drake, a.k.a. Red Robin. Stephanie Brown, a.k.a. Spoiler. Cassandra Cain, a.k.a. the Orphan. And reformed criminal Basil Karlo, a.k.a. Clayface. These are the shock troops in Batman and Batwoman’s war. When they finally see the face of their true enemy, will they stand together…or fall apart?

Find out In Batman: Detective Comics Vol. 1: Rise of The Batmen, a great jumping-on point for new readers! This masterful high-octane thriller from writer James Tynion IV (Batman and Robin Eternal) and artists Eddy Barrows (Nightwing) and Alvaro Martinez (Ultimate Comics X-Men) explodes from the blockbuster DC Rebirth event! Collects Detective Comics #934-940.


And how can we forget about BATMAN / TMNT? These have been some of our favorite crossovers, and James does an incredible job of combining the hard-hitting Eastman-style TMNT with the world of the DARK KNIGHT!

It all starts in Gotham City, as a series of deadly raids leads Batman to believe he is up against a group of highly trained ninjas. Somehow, the Foot Clan has crossed over to another dimension-but they haven’t come alone: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo are on their trail!

Snag the trade paperback, and get a copy signed by James!


And, then one of our personal faves by James is his epic run of JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, taking some of the DC’s most iconic supernatural characters and putting them into some of their most mystical adventures yet!

Earth’s magic once belonged to them. Now they want the magic back. But who exactly are they?

It’s up to the new Justice League Dark to find out and stop this nightmarish new threat at all costs!

After the events of NO JUSTICE, Wonder Woman guides the misfit magic mix against enemies too fantastic even for the Justice League. Plus, what awful things are coming through the Tree of Wonder?


And, before all of these crazy awesome DCU titles — we first fell in love with James’s work in the incredible BOOM STUDIOS series THE WOODS, which delivers some very STRANGER THINGS-esque creepiness itself!

On a brisk fall day in suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 437 students, 52 teachers, and 24 additional staff from Bay Point Preparatory High School vanished without a trace.

Countless light years away, far outside the bounds of the charted universe, 513 people find themselves in the middle of an ancient, primordial wilderness.

Where are they? Why are they there? The answers will prove stranger than anyone could possibly imagine.

Snag yourself a copy of the trade paperback, and get it signed by James on 9/7 or 9/8!


And, last but definitely not least, a trade paperback featuring THREE of James’s biggest hits at Third Eye: the DARK NIGHTS METAL Nightmare Batmen one-shots!

In the DARK NIGHTS METAL: DARK KNIGHTS RISING TP, James has three great stories — THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, THE DEVASTATOR, and THE MURDER MACHINE!

Snag a copy and get it signed!
