Third Eye Faithful, we’re super stoked to be having the creative team who brought us the graphic novels that inspired the upcoming TV series, THE BOYS, to Third. Eye!
The legendary Garth Ennis will be joining us alongside the incredibly talented Russell Braun (THE BOYS, NIGHT WITCHES, JIMMY’S BASTARDS) for what is sure to be an epic Third Eye signing event
As many of you know from years of having us recommend and refer you to Garth Ennis’s impressive catalog, ranging from titles like PREACHER, THE BOYS, PUNISHER MAX, WAR STORIES, CROSSED and beyond. We’ve been long-time fans of Garth’s writing, and we’re absolutely positively STOKED to be hosting this incredible signing event for TWO of his latest and greatest releases, and we’re even more stoked to have the amazing artist that brought NIGHT WITCHES to life here along with Garth!
So, Third Eye Faithful, start getting yourselves prepared for what is sure to be one of the most killer signing events we’ve hosted at Third Eye yet!
What’s NIGHT WITCHES & SARA about?
So, many of you may already know, but for those of you who don’t, Garth Ennis can write some of the most kick-ass, action-packed yet true to the history war comics you’ve ever read.
Seriously: when this man is putting his pen to paper for war genre stuff — he’s one of the best, not just in the world of comics, but in any medium. He’s just got a natural knack for being able to tell a fantastic war story, while keeping you entertained all the way through.
In THE NIGHT WITCHES, as the German Army smashes deep into Soviet Russia and the defenders of the Motherland retreat in disarray, a new squadron arrives at a Russian forward airbase.
Like all night bomber units, they will risk fiery death flying obsolete biplanes against the invader. but unlike the rest, these pilots and navigators are women. In the lethal skies above the Eastern front, they will become a legend known to friend and foe alike as the Night Witches.
With casualties mounting and the conflict devouring more and more of her comrades, Lieutenant Anna Kharkova quickly grows from a naive teenager to a hardened combat veteran.
With both Garth and Russ on site to sign, you can get your copy of NIGHT WITCHES signed by both creators!
And, then, the other huge new release we’re bringing Garth in for, is the amazing new TKO STUDIOS graphic novel, SARA!
SARA is another hard-hitting war story from Garth, and is a perfect example of the high quality work that rising star publisher TKO Studios is putting out!
In SARA, a team of female Russian snipers beat back the Nazi invaders on the WW2 Eastern Front, and all hell breaks loose!
PREACHER’s not just big because the show is amazing, — no, it’s big because it’s one of the best damn graphic novels of the modern age of comics.
At Third Eye, we’ve always thought that the heart of the medium of comics was good story, and PREACHER is one of those rare moments that hits on every single note. The writing of Ennis marries with the art of Steve Dillon to make for an incredibly cinematic and immersive experience that is pretty much responsible in part for the entire direction of the comic book medium today.
Seriously, books like PREACHER, TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE SANDMAN, and more paved the way for the renaissance of amazing stories we’re seeing now with books like SAGA, BLACK SCIENCE, and more.
What’s it about? A minister without faith finds himself struck by an entity that blends the first ever offspring of an angel and a demon, and sends him on a search for God, who has abandoned heaven. From there — you’re taken into a story that defies genre, but at its heart is about friendships, and the good, the bad, and the ugly that comes with them.
We’ve got plenty of PREACHER BOOKS 1-6, the entire run, in stock to get you on board this modern classic!
Ennis’s critically acclaimed follow-up to PREACHER is the epic 12 volume THE BOYS, and folks, if you’ve yet to read this yet — you gotta check it out.
The men and women who have extraordinary abilities and are supposed to protect us? They’re just capes-for-hire who have the same character flaws as many human beings, and while some are worse than others, they’re all a little corrupt as we are quick to see that absolute power corrupts absolutely.
And, THE BOYS? They’re the men and women who’ve had their lives destroyed in the crossfire of these super-powered throwdowns… and have dedicated their lives working for a secret part of the government to make sure that the “heroes” of the world never go.. too far!
An epic look at the darker side of capes and tights, THE BOYS is one of our favorite Ennis reads, and we highly recommend checking it out!
With Russell Braun joining Garth on the series, and delivering some of the most memorable moments, this is an epic chance to get your copies of the BOYS signed before it explodes with the upcoming TV series!
Jimmy’s Bastards is another collaboration between Garth & Russ, and delivers a super fun, over-the-top riff on the James Bond super-spy arch-type.
Jimmy Regent, Britain’s number one super-spy, has got it all: intrigue, adventure, a license to shoot whoever he likes and beautiful women falling at his feet.
He also has a new partner who isn’t quite as impressed by Jimmy as all other women appear to be.
Now, there’s a price to pay for Jimmy’s multiple romantic conquests — the results of which are about to come calling in the worst possible way…
Another must-read from Garth is his epic work on THE PUNISHER with the now-classic PUNISHER MAX line, and then preceding it, PUNISHER: WELCOME BACK FRANK!
Garth has pretty much written the definitive take on Frank Castle, and to this day, we don’t think we’ve seen anyone come close to capturing a more perfect way to approach the Punisher (aside from Jason Aaron’s run — which was very much in the spirit of Garth’s take!)
In PUNISHER MAX, when a mob hit killed his beloved wife and children, Frank Castle became the Punisher – an unstoppable one-man army waging war on every piece of criminal scum plaguing New York’s streets.
But do the Punisher’s origins trace back even further?
In 1971 Vietnam, Captain Castle’s platoon faces a Viet Cong attack – and to survive, he must make a grim choice.
Then, Punisher’s old partner, Microchip, long thought to be a casualty of Castle’s war, resurfaces with a startling offer!
Will the Punisher play patsy for the CIA?
If not, will they let him walk away?
And in a story ripped from the headlines, Castle must take on rival Irish gangs when a bomb goes off in Hell’s Kitchen!
