Tom King SIGNING 11AM-2PM — Signing Open to All!

Free DC Comics Graphic Novel or Comic (while supplies last) with Government ID – all day 11am-9pm!

Our pal Tom King is bringing you FREE DC Comics graphic novels to deliver a little escapism and fun during the government shutdown. Just show your government ID, and Tom’ll hook you up with a FREE DC Comics graphic novel or comic! 

And, on top of that – Tom will be signing for all (no government ID necessary there!), so get a chance to meet one of the most talented writers in comics today!

Third Eye Faithful, we know we have a lot of you out there who may have loved ones who are impacted by the recent government shutdown, or may be impacted yourselves — and, we know how sometimes something as simple as an afternoon of good comics, good fun, and good friends can help lighten the week.

Well, when our pal, and all-around amazing comic book writer extraordinaire Tom King reached out to us to let us know he had tons of DC Comics graphic novels he wanted to put in the hands of those affected by the government shutdown — we dug into the Third Eye vaults, put together a bunch of comics on our end as well — and together, we’re going to be hooking anyone who shows their government ID at Third Eye this Saturday between 11AM-9PM a free graphic novel or comic (while supplies last!)
And, of course, even if you don’t have a government ID, you can still come and get your Tom King comics and graphic novels signed!
So, Third Eye Faithful, come on out this Saturday, and spend some time with your Third Eye Fam and Tom King as we deliver an afternoon of pure Third Eye fun!

Aside from free comics & being an awesome dude, why do we love Tom King? Check out these incredible projects!

 

BATMAN!

We gotta tell ya: Tom’s BATMAN is one of those incredible runs that will go down in history.
It’s pretty amazing that we’re getting THREE amazing BAT-RUNS in a row.
Seriously: Grant Morrison’s work on BATMAN, which then led us to Scott Snyder’s iconic run, which then brought us to Tom’s run.
That’s nearly TEN years of Batman awesomeness, and we cannot even begin to tell you how lucky we feel to have been with these runs every step of the way since Third Eye opened its doors!
If you’re not reading Tom’s run, we highly recommend jumping on board. We know many of you may have already picked up THE BUTTON (as it pertains to DOOMSDAY CLOCK in a BIG way!), but if you haven’t read the earlier stuff, please scoop the first volume and get into it!
We’ll have plenty of all the trade paperbacks, as well as single issues of Tom’s BATMAN in stock to get you on board, so you can get ’em signed!

Other Projects by Tom King – Vision, Mister Miracle, Omega Men and more!

In the spirit of iconic Vertigo riffs on superheroes like Grant Morrison’s ANIMAL MAN, Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING, and Tom King’s own VISION – the new MISTER MIRACLE is a dark, fascinating modern world take on the world of DC’s NEW GODS.
Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived.
So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda.
Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques.
He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.
You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough?
Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick – except one.
He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.
There are comics that practically crackle with that pure magic energy that makes for a stunning story – and the new MISTER MIRACLE is one of those books. Do NOT sleep on this one!

OMEGA MEN is by far one of the best sleeper hits in comics we’ve seen in a minute, and if you haven’t yet added it to your collection alongside VISION, you need to remedy that right this minute!
This dark, hard-hitting space epic takes an obscure group of DC Comics characters, and reinvents them in one of the most compelling ways we’ve seen.
And, how does it do that? Well, them murdering KYLE RAYNER is a good start.
On the run, and with motives that’ll surprise you, the world of OMEGA MEN is a brutal space epic steeped in a love of the DC Universe that will grab a hold of you and not let go!
We’ll have plenty of the graphic novel collecting the entire series in stock for you to get signed by Tom!

In this eerie, smart, and subtly complex series, the idea of not just the Vision, but artificial intelligence, and what it means to be human is brought into question in a way we’ve never seen before.
The Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family?
He goes to the laboratory where he was created, where Ultron molded him into a weapon, where he first rebelled against his given destiny, where he first imagined that he could be more, that he could be good, that he could be a man, a normal, ordinary man. And he builds them.
A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition or perhaps obsession: the unrelenting need to be ordinary.
Behold The Visions! They’re the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong?
This is the kind of book that people will be holding in the same high regard as Grant Morrison’s ANIMAL MAN, Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING, and more, for years to come!
We’ve got both trade paperbacks in stock to get you into it, so you can get it signed on 2/3/18!

Third Eye Faithful, I cannot even begin to tell you how freakin’ stoked we are about this killer series featuring the sharp writing of MISTER MIRACLE team Tom King and the amazing artwork of Mitch Gerards!
Baghdad, 2003. Florida police officer-turned-military contractor, Chris Henry is tasked with training a new Iraqi police force.
When one of his trainees ends up dead, Chris is forced to team up with Nassir, the last remaining cop in Baghdad.
Pulling the strings to bring them together is the mysterious Sofia, an American-educated Iraqi who has returned to take control of the city’s criminal underworld.
This stunning new mini-series delivers a wartime crime drama that’s unlike anything we’ve seen done in comics. You know the chills you got when you first read CRIMINAL? You know the way your jaw hit the floor upon finishing that first arc of SOUTHERN BASTARDS? Sheriff of Babylon delivers the same kind of feeling — a truly unique and fascinating read!
It’s also no secret that Tom’s real-life experience as a CIA operations officer probably helps lend an unremarkable amount of awesomeness to this new series!

A thrilling new chapter of Dick Grayson’s life begins in this title collecting the start of his new hit series.
It’s a super-spy thriller that will shock you and prove one thing: You may think you know Nightwing – but you don’t know Dick!
As he digs into the mysterious organization known as SPYRAL and learns more about his new partner, Helena Bertinelli, how can Dick keep track of all the lies?
Or will he fall apart once he can no longer tell fact from fiction?
Plus: Dick Grayson goes toe-to-toe with the Midnighter! Collects GRAYSON #1-4, a story from SECRET ORIGINS #7 and GRAYSON: FUTRUES END #1.

Tom King’s latest epic, HEROES IN CRISIS!

As we said above, Tom King is one of our all time favorite comic writers of the modern age and heck, of all time.  And when we say HEROES IN CRISIS will be one everyone will be talking about years after, we mean it.
HEROES IN CRISIS finds us in a world of superheroes plagued not by supervillains and monsters – but mental health.  Hundreds of heroes experience a certain level of PTSD, and with that knowledge – Wonder Woman, Batman and Superman create The Sanctuary, a top secret hospital for recovering heroes.
This all comes to a screeching halt when inexplicably, patients start turning up dead.
With absolutely nothing to go on; the DC Trinity start to suspect it as an inside job – with Harley Quinn and Booster Gold being the prime suspects!
Like many of his iconic storylines, Tom draws from his extensive career in the CIA – and a bit from his personal life as well.  We’re telling you – Tom takes it to a level that NO ONE has before, and we can’t wait to see where he takes us this time.
