Saturday 2/3/18: Swamp Thing Winter Special Signing w/ TOM KING (Batman, Vision, Mister Miracle)


Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK.

Third Eye Faithful – we’re not gonna even dance around it: Tom King is one of our absolute favorite writers in comics today, and we’ve got a strong feeling it’s going to be that way for quite some time.

So, as you can imagine, when the opportunity came up for us to be lucky enough to bring Tom in the shop to sign his incredible looking SWAMP THING WINTER SPECIAL that’s due out this Winter… well, to say we jumped at it is an understatement!

We know many of you are already very familiar with Tom’s work on BATMAN (along with the incredible BATMAN ANNUAL that came out this week!), along with his iconic VISION run, his breath-taking SHERIFF OF BABYLON, and his currently amazing MISTER MIRACLE run – but, when we say that Tom on Swamp Thing excites us the most; trust us: we’ve got good reason!

Not only did his work on BATMAN #23 (THE BRAVE AND THE MOLD) blow us away, but the character of SWAMP THING and everything that it means to comic fans is the kind of character that Tom really makes pure magic with.

Read on, Third Eye Faithful, mark your calendars, and get stoked for another big Third Eye signing!

What’s SWAMP THING WINTER SPECIAL all about?

In this very special one-shot, Tom King and Jason Fabok pay tribute to the legendary creators of Swamp Thing, writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, as they join forces for an earth-shattering Swamp Thing passion project!

In this new, squarebound one-shot, Swamp Thing is out of his element as he shepherds a lost boy through a blinding blizzard and other hazards of a strange, frozen tundra. In this touching and harrowing tale of survival, the pair must navigate countless threats throughout a bewildering terrain-with a bloodthirsty snow monster hot on their heels.

But how long can they rely on each other? Separated from the Green and stripped of his powers in this dead world, Swamp Thing struggles to fight for their lives and deliver the boy to safety.

Disoriented and decaying, Swamp Thing’s fading understanding of his surroundings forces the duo to confront their desperation and uncover the true identity of the snow monster that hunts them.

In addition, this special features the final Swamp Thing story from the monster’s co-creator, Len Wein.

Originally intended as the start of a new series, it is presented here both in its original script for and with art by Kelley Jones.

Other Projects by Tom King… starting with 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.
