Third Eye Faithful: one of the biggest DC titles to release this Summer has gotta be BATMAN / SUPERMAN #1, and we’re super freakin’ stoked to be bringing in the superstar writer behind it, Joshua Williamson, to help kick it off at Third Eye!

Josh will be joining us on Saturday 8/17/19 to help celebrate the release of the book, and sign copies for you, along with all of his other incredible works, including his epic run of DC Rebirth’s FLASH, and his amazing creator-owned work like NAILBITER and BIRTHRIGHT!
While the details of just why BATMAN SUPERMAN is going to be such a big title are highly guarded, we gotta tell ya: trust us — it’s gonna be a HUGE deal!

What’s the scoop on BATMAN / SUPERMAN #1?

This is going to be a big book, Third Eye Faithful, and it’s got a ton of buzz behind it, as being one of the most important books in the DCU line-up for 2019.
In BATMAN / SUPERMAN #1, we’re taken into some very dark corners of the DCU.
Up in the sky, in the dark of the night, trust no one-for the Secret Six walk among us.
Spinning out of the devastating events of the Batman Who Laughs, Superman and Batman are together once more in an all-new monthly series-and they’re facing a terrifying new threat that could strike from anywhere.
The Dark Knight and the Man of Steel must journey into the depths of Gotham City to learn which of their fellow heroes has been transformed into the horrifying horseman of their most dangerous and deranged foe ever. Our heroes will need to fight to survive, but an even more dangerous question lurks in the shadows:
Can Superman and Batman even trust each other?

Who are the SECRET SIX in BATMAN / SUPERMAN?! Meet the next round of NIGHTMARE versions of iconic DC Characters — if you thought the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS was something, wait until you see these guys!

One of the most important parts of the new BATMAN / SUPERMAN series is the fact that it’s opening that portal to the DARK MULTIVERSE, and ushering in six new NIGHTMARE versions of DC characters, in the vein of the NIGHTMARE BATMEN (i.e the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, THE DROWNED, THE RED DEATH, etc.).
In other words: this book plays a big part in the realm of METAL, and we’re so pumped to see what’s in store.
The big shocker was that in issue #1 — the SHAZAM WHO LAUGHS debuts, and then from there — each issue will be debuting another of the SECRET SIX!
Stay tuned, as we’ll be offering a special countdown to the revealing of the sixth and final member of the SECRET SIX as the series runs on!

Get the THIRD EYE COMICS exclusive variant of BATMAN / SUPERMAN #1 by KAARE ANDREWS, completing our KAARE COLLECTION, and bringing together the Trinity of the DC Universe — but absolutely corrupted by the Dark Multiverse!

We’re so darn pumped about the arrival of BATMAN / SUPERMAN, that we’ve put together a special THIRD EYE COMICS exclusive cover for issue #1 — which completes our KAARE Collection that began with ACTION COMICS #1000, and continued with this year’s DETECTIVE COMICS #1000, featuring Kaare’s iconic takes on the Dark Knight and the Man of Steel and the women they love.
In this third cover, completing the set, Kaare portrays Nightmare versions of DC’s Holy Trinity, and we gotta say: it’s our favorite one he has done yet!
You can pre-order yours online for mail order or in-store pick-up here.

Other Projects by Joshua Williamson!

We’ve been hooked on Joshua Williamson’s incredible IMAGE series, NAILBITER, since issue #1, and this brutal take on the world of serial killers is showing no signs of slowing down!

In the world of NAILBITER, we’re asked the question: Where do serial killers come from?
Venture to Buackaroo, Oregon, a place that’s given birth to sixteen of the most vile serial murderers in the world.
Why is this place such a breeding ground for madness?
Find out as NSA agent Nicholas Finch tries to solve that very mystery in order to save his friend, and to do it, he’ll have to team up with the infamous EDWARD “NAILBITER” WARREN!
Imagine the world of TWIN PEAKS mixed with the horror of SE7EN and that sums up NAILBITER very well!
Snag volume 1, collecting 1-5, for only $9.99!
We’ll have plenty of copies of all the individual issues of NAILBITER as well as the first 5 graphic novels in stock and available for this event!

Another incredible piece of work from IMAGE that Williamson has been doing is the dark modern fantasy epic, BIRTHRIGHT, which blends the 21st century with a world of FINAL FANTASY-style sword and sorcery in a masterful way!

For the Rhodes family, losing their son was the most devastating thing that could have occurred.. but it couldn’t prepare them for what happened when he returned.
A fantastic blend of real world drama with otherworldly Tolkien-esque fantasy, BIRTHRIGHT is one of the best things we saw from IMAGE in 2014, and we highly recommend scooping this first graphic novel, and giving the book a shot! You’ll be hooked!
We’ll have all the single issues of BIRTHRIGHT, as well as all 3 graphic novels, in stock and available for you to get signed on 1/28/17

Another incredible IMAGE series from Joshua Williamson is GHOSTED, and if you haven’t read this one yet — we highly recommend it!

Jackson T. Winters is one of the greatest criminal masterminds to ever live…except he’s rotting in jail after his last doomed score.

But when a filthy rich collector breaks Winters out, he’s tasked to put together an elite team of paranormal experts to do the impossible: steal a ghost from a haunted house of horrors!

We’ll have all the single issues and the graphic novels of GHOSTED available for you to check out and get signed at our big event on 1/28/17

And, we definitely can’t forget to shout-out Josh’s incredible DC Rebirth FLASH run that has been one of THE most important Rebirth books to be reading!

With an eye towards the bigger story of REBIRTH as a whole, along with some of THE best Flash storytelling we’ve seen in ages — this is killer, killer stuff!

A new storm brews over Central City and disproves the old adage about lightning never striking twice! Just as Barry begins to feel overwhelmed fighting crime, a new speedster appears-but just where did this amazing new ally come from?

Now, the Fastest Man Alive finds himself in a city of speedsters-and dealing with the reappearance of Wally West!

Not only do we have the single issues of FLASH REBIRTH in stock to hook you up, but also the trade paperbacks as well that collect the series!

SAT 1/5/19: Conan the Barbarian #1 Launch Signing w/ Jason Aaron

Click here for event info on FACEBOOK.

Limit of up to 6 items (2 from home, 3 from the table, any 1 CONAN #1) per trip through the line. 

Due to the popularity of this event, the signing line will cap at 1PM – you must be in line by 1PM to be able to get your items signed. 

Third Eye Faithful, get ready: this January, we’re bringing you our biggest in-store signing event yet as we host comic superstar, JASON AARON, to launch his most exciting new project yet: CONAN THE BARBARIAN!

We are beyond stoked to be hosting Jason at the shop, and we know when many of you guys heard our first announcement of this, you echoed the same excitement in a major way!

And, you guys know why this signing is happening? It’s because of YOU and your enthusiasm for these awesome events we have. Third Eye has a reputation far and wide for providing some of the most fun in-store events in the country, and we could not do it without you guys and the genuine love of the medium each and everyone of you brings with you.

As one of our absolute favorite comic writers in the game today,  Jason has one of the most robust, and eclectic catalogs of top notch work in comics, and we cannot wait to give you all the opportunity to meet a living legend like him, and get your favorites signed!

PLUS: it’s the debut of Marvel’s first CONAN series in years! Not since Marvel took over the Star Wars license, have we been this excited about a licensed comic series, and with the long, rich history and tradition Marvel has with delivering incredible CONAN comics (be it Buscema or Barry Windsor Smith — not to mention the many others — Marvel’s CONAN back catalog is legendary in its own right!), we just know that the return of Conan to Marvel is going to be extra special!

What’s the scoop on the new Marvel CONAN THE BARBARIAN series ?

OK, before we go any further: there really is no one more perfect to do a CONAN comic series than Jason Aaron.
Seriously: the work he’s done with THOR and the Asgard mythos over the last decade proves that he can do some serious sword-and-sorcery, and his creator-owned works like THE GODDAMNED, MEN OF WRATH, SOUTHERN BASTARDS and SCALPED show that he’s got an amazing way of telling tales where the lead characters are cast in moral shades of gray.
In other words: if you were wondering just how to make an awesome CONAN comic in 2018 — there’s only two things we can say: JASON. AARON.
And, then throw in the gorgeous artwork of the very talented Mahmud Asrar (UNCANNY X-MEN), and you’ve got yourself one of the best takes on the Cimmerian barbarian we’ve ever seen!
From an age undreamed…hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet…
Robert E. Howard’s creation returns to comics, in an epic tale as only MARVEL could bring you!
Conan’s travels have brought him to the far reaches of the unkown, from his birthplace in Cimmeria to the kingdom of Aquilonia and all in between.
As his fighting prowess allows him to carve his way through life, so too does it attract the forces of death!

Other Projects by JASON AARON

We’re super big fans of Aaron’s other projects, and past works as well, so we wanted to take a moment to spotlight some of the other great stuff he’s done that you can get signed on 1/5/19!

First off, one of our absolute favorites by AARON is the incredible crime epic SOUTHERN BASTARDS, which blends the desperation of rural noir with the world-building of series like Garth Ennis’s PREACHER to make for one of the best darn comics on the stands today!

OK, folks, SOUTHERN BASTARDS HAS to be one of our favorite books, each and every month, and if you’re not reading it — now is the time to start.
A brutal rural crime noir that captures the vibe of movies like NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, and the storytelling chops of PREACHER, it’s hard to put into work just what makes the story tick — but trust us: the ending of volume 1 is so good, so surprising, and such a total kick in the butt, that you’ll be hooked!
We’ll have all the graphic novels, as well as select single issues from the run, in stock and available at our signing with Jason on 1/5/19!

Another series by Jason that we feel many of you may already be very familiar with is his incredible run of THOR that began with the THOR GOD OF THUNDER series, and we feel that many of you in particular are like us, and fondly remember the awesomeness of THE GOD BUTCHER storyline!

We’re talking some of the most hard-hitting THOR ever, and pretty much what has set the template for all the amazing THOR that Jason has done since.
We’ll have all the graphic novels, as well as select single issues from the run, in stock and available at our signing with Jason on 1/5/19!
 

And, don’t forget, Star Wars, the flagship series that resurrected the SW license at Marvel, was done under the careful hand of Jason Aaron for nearly 3 years straight, and pretty much gave us the best darn Star Wars comic we’ve read in a very, very long time.

Seriously: this is incredible stuff, and we know many of you, like us, were blown away with just how freakin’ good a Star Wars comic could be by this series!
We’ll have all the graphic novels, as well as select single issues from the run, in stock and available at our signing with Jason on 1/5/19!

Finally, one of Jason’s most recent hits, and one of our personal favorite series of the year, is the incredible new AVENGERS flagship title which has taken Earth’s Mightiest Heroes back to their roots, while at the same time introducing a ton of bigger-than-life Marvel mayhem to make for some of the best AVENGERS storytelling we’ve read since the Jonathan Hickman run of the book!

A new era for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes! Steve Rogers. Tony Stark. Thor Odinson.
The big three are reunited at last – and just in time to save the world from the 2,000-foot-tall space gods known as the Celestials!
Behold the coming of the Final Host! But who will answer the call as a new team of Avengers assembles?
As Black Panther and Doctor Strange battle for their lives deep within the earth, Captain Marvel faces death and destruction raining down from the skies.
And what about the Savage She-Hulk and the all-new Ghost Rider? Plus: No gathering of Avengers would be complete without a certain Prince of Lies!
But what world-shaking connection exists between the Dark Celestials and Odin’s ancient band of Prehistoric Avengers?
We’ll have all the single issues, as well as the 1st graphic novel of this blockbuster run in stock to hook you up!

The series where we first discovered Jason (OK, so that’s not necessarily true — Third Eye Steve remembers working the counter at a comic shop in the pre-Third Eye days and reading Jason’s incredible THE OTHER SIDE for Vertigo, and digging the heck out of it!) is the amazing SCALPED series.

This hard-hitting crime drama blends the kind of compelling storytelling of a series like THE WIRE with the real world politics and environment of a Native American reservation, and is some of the best darn sequential storytelling we’ve seen in the last few years.
A true must-read — what’s it about? Dashiell Bad Horse has come home to the reservation armed with a set of nunchucks,  a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and a dark secret. But nothing has changed-except for the glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime.
We’ll have all the graphic novels of SCALPED in stock to get you hooked up so you can get ’em signed by Jason on 1/5/19!

Another must-read run from Jason Aaron, which actually falls in as part of his epic run of THOR, is the JANE FOSTER Thor stuff, which began with the THOR GODDESS OF THUNDER storyline.

We loved every second of the Jane Foster THOR stuff, and the entire run connects the GOD OF THUNDER Thor stuff with the current THOR title very nicely.

Highly recommended, we’ll have all the graphic novels, as well as select single issues for this run in stock to get you hooked up!

These are just a few of the many amazing pieces of work Jason has done, which is one of the reasons we’re so stoked to be hosting him at Third Eye for CONAN — he’s written so many of our favorite comics!
Make sure to swing by our shop between now and the 5th to get the full scoop on which Jason Aaron books you should check out, and set aside for our big signing with Jason on 1/5/19!

SAT 6/9/18: ISOLA #3 Launch Signing w/ Brenden Fletcher & Karl Kerschl

Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK.

When we first took a glance at ISOLA – we knew right away that this book was going to be truly special, and Third Eye Faithful, after sitting down with issue #1 – we can tell you we were absolutely right.

This lush, gorgeously illustrated sci-fi fantasy epic takes us back to our youth when we spent way too much time playing FINAL FANTASY VII, and eagerly sought out every Miyazaki film we could find.
Seriously though, imagine the world-building and epic storytelling of SEVEN TO ETERNITY and mix that with a STUDIO GHIBLI aesthetic, and that sums up ISOLA very well.
And, because we’re so pumped on the book, we’ve put together a very special signing to bring ISOLA creators BRENDEN FLETCHER (BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE, MOTOR CRUSH, GOTHAM ACADEMY) and KARL KERSCHL (GOTHAM ACADEMY) to Third Eye!

What’s the scoop on ISOLA?

As the home of premiere top quality storytelling, it’s really awesome to see a new crop of Image books that deliver the goods, and ISOLA definitely fits the bill.
In ISOLA #1, the captain of the Royal Guard has fled the capital city with the Queen of Maar, suffering under the effects of an evil spell.
Captain Rook’s only hope of returning Queen Olwyn to her throne and saving the kingdom from impending war lies on an island half a world away-a place known in myth as Isola, land of the dead.
Featuring lush color work by MSASSYK (Gotham Academy) and letters by ADITYA BIDIKAR (MOTOR CRUSH). Recommended for fans of Studio Ghibli and the work of Hayao Miyazaki.
Imagine the sweeping science fiction fantasy storytelling of SEVEN TO ETERNITY and mix that with a very Studio Ghibli aesthetic, and that really captures the tone of ISOLA well.

Be sure to check out these other series by Brenden Fletcher & Karl Kerschl!

 
Barbara Gordon is no stranger to dusting herself off when disaster strikes, so when a fire destroys everything she owns, she spots the opportunity for a new lease on life – and seizes it!
Following the rest of Gotham City’s young adults to the hip border district of Burnside, Barbara sets about building an all-new Batgirl…and discovers new threats preying on her peers!
As the new hero of Burnside, Batgirl gets started by facing twin sister assassins on motorcycles! Collects BATGIRL #35-40.
This was a super fun run of the character, and really set the stage for what we know in the world of BATGIRL!
Snag a copy of the graphic novel, and get it signed by Brenden on 6/9/18!
Another big favorite of ours was the work that Brenden & Karl did on GOTHAM ACADEMY SECOND SEMESTER, and if you haven’t yet checked it out – now is the perfect chance!
With a new semester under way, Olive and the rest of the Detective Club have a new mystery: the Book of Gotham!
The club must find out why this book is so important as Olive faces her destiny!
A great blend of TV shows like RIVERDALE & VERONICA MARS with the world of Batman – GOTHAM ACADEMY rules! Snag a copy and get it signed by Brenden & Karl on 6/9/18!
One of our favorite IMAGE series of the last few years has gotta be MOTOR CRUSH, and we’re super pumped to give you the opportunity to get it signed by Brenden on 6/9/18!
By day, Domino Swift competes for fame & fortune in a worldwide motorcycle racing league.
By night, she cracks heads of rival gangs in brutal bike wars to gain possession of a rare, valuable contraband: an engine-boosting “machine narcotic” known as Crush.
