The Third Eye Guide to Batman/Superman


Hey Third Eye Faithful! We know one of the hottest things going right now in the DC Universe is the world of the Dark Multiverse and the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS that spun out of 2017’s DARK NIGHTS METAL storyline… so, we KNOW you’re going to be pumped to hear all about Batman Superman #1! 

The story of the DARK MULTIVERSE and the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS continues in the all new ongoing BATMAN / SUPERMAN series, with this title being ground zero for all things METAL-related!

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

In this new ongoing series, each issue will be introducing us to one of the Secret Six — the INFECTED!

New DARK MULTIVERSE versions of iconic DCU characters ala the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS… and the even bigger mystery: who are they, and what do they want, is what this series will be exploring! 

With huge things on the horizon, BATMAN / SUPERMAN #1 is THE most important DC Universe title to be following, as not only will it be ground zero for major events that will impact the DCU as a whole – but, also the focal point and flagship title for the DCU in 2019 and 2020!

Written by superstar Joshua Williamson (THE FLASH, NAILBITER, BIRTHRIGHT, DARK NIGHTS METAL: THE RED DEATH), and featuring the art of all-star DAVID MARQUEZ, BATMAN / SUPERMAN is set to be one of the hottest titles to launch from DCU since the debut of METAL, and we want to make sure you’re on board!

What else has Joshua Williamson worked on? Well, 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!

Debuting on 8/28/19, we’ll have not only all the normal covers for BATMAN / SUPERMAN #1, but also a special edition THIRD EYE variant featuring art by the one and only KAARE ANDREWS, who had done incredible work on past Third Eye covers like DETECTIVE COMICS #1000 and ACTION COMICS #1000! 

This cover completes the trilogy of covers Kaare has done for Third Eye, and puts an interesting riff on the Holy Trinity of the DCU with Dark Multiverse Nightmare Versions of SUPERMAN, BATMAN and WONDER WOMAN — which is why we have nicknamed this cover the UNHOLY TRINITY variant! 

You can check pre-order your copy of the THIRD EYE COVER for mail order or in-store pick up by clicking here.

The Third Eye Guide to Spawn #300

The Third Eye Guide to SPAWN #300 – TODD MCFARLANE & GREG CAPULLO (DARK NIGHTS METAL) reunite — and SCOTT SNYDER (DARK NIGHTS METAL) lends his talents to the book!

The biggest thing to hit Image Comics since SPAWN #1!

If you grew up reading comics in the ’90s — then you know as well as we do: SPAWN was the biggest thing ever, and issue #1 blew the doors off the comic industry in a huge way, and to this day — the title still remains one of the most beloved superhero comics on the stands!

Now, we’re about to see one of the most historic moments in comics as SPAWN hits issue #300 – not only is this a big milestone for Spawn, Todd McFarlane, and Image Comics, but also a huge milestone for creator-owned comics in general.

There’s only been one or two other titles that have hit 300 consecutive issues that would be consider creator-owned (in fact, the only other may be Cerebus), and to see SPAWN as one of them — it’s a pretty big deal.

On top of all that: this issue of SPAWN sets out to deliver something that many of you have been waiting for: the perfect place to jump back into the world of Al Simmons and the battle between Heaven and Hell.

And, for many of you – this may be your first ever time reading SPAWN, after only hearing about the legendary character for years — and that’s killer, cause issue #300 is THE perfect place to begin reading the series!

What’s the scoop on SPAWN #300? SPAWN MAKES HISTORY!

With this 300th issue, SPAWN becomes the longest-running independent series in comic book history. To celebrate, legendary artists TODD McFARLANE and GREG CAPULLO return with ALL-NEW interior pencils, with additional art provided by JASON SHAWN ALEXANDER, J. SCOTT CAMPBELL, and JEROME OPEÑA, a cavalcade of celebratory covers, and additional writing by SCOTT SNYDER!

And next month, RECORDS WILL BE BROKEN with SPAWN #301!

Wednesday 9/4/19 is our SPAWN #300 Launch Party! Get all the covers, score sweet deals on IMAGE Comics goodness, and more!

We’re totally pumped for SPAWN #300, as you can tell, and to help celebrate, we’re serving up something extra special: SPAWN #300 launch party events at all Third Eye locations!

The Third Eye Guide to Absolute Carnage

The Third Eye Guide to the biggest Venom / Carnage storyline since MAXIMUM CARNAGE!

VENOM writer Donny Cates & VENOM artist Ryan Stegman deliver the culmination of their work in building the VENOM mythos with ABSOLUTE CARNAGE — get into the best take on the symbiote in ages with this awesome event!

We’ve been loving what Marvel has going in 2019, and one of the most anticipated reads for us has gotta be ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, which is the explosive culmination of all the cool stuff that Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman began in their VENOM run with Knull, and more!

Now, the Cult of Carnage goes into full swing, and we could not be more stoked! The Lovecraftian horror take that has become a major part of the expanded symbiote mythos that Cates and Stegman have created is in full effect in this new series, and we’re loving every second of it!

What’s the scoop on ABSOLUTE CARNAGE? Encompassing every character who’s ever worn a symbiote or been affected by the symbiotes of the Marvel Universe will feel the tendrils of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE!

From stars like Eddie Brock, Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and more to more obscure symbiotes like Scream — this book will be tying together everything in a major way, and judging from the quality of what we’ve already seen in Donny and Ryan’s amazing VENOM run – it’s going to be big!

After turning Venom’s world upside down a year ago, DONNY CATES and RYAN STEGMAN are about to put the Sinister Symbiote through hell again, only this time CARNAGE has come calling, and everyone who’s ever worn a symbiote is dead in his sights!

He’s skirted the periphery of the Marvel Universe for months, but Cletus Kasady at last stands poised to make his grand return to New York in a blistering 60-PAGE story… and he wants to paint the town red!

Join us Wednesday 8/7/19 for our ABSOLUTE CARNAGE Day-1 Launch Party!

We are so stoked about ABSOLUTE CARNAGE that we’re hosting a special DAY-1 launch event to kick it off, and give you first chance at jumping on board with all the killer exclusive covers and goodies Marvel has in store for it!

Wanna Catch Up On Your Venom & Carnage Reads Before ABSOLUTE CARNAGE? Start with Third Eye’s TOP 5 Symbiote Stunners!

We know after getting all hyped about HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X, you’re probably itching to dig into some X-MEN goodness, and we’ve put together our TOP 5 X-Reads to hold you over until things kick off at the end of July!

VENOM VOL.1 REX

This is where it all begins. The saga of Knull, the compelling introduction to the lore behind the VENOM symbiote, and so much more as Eddie Brock becomes the most interesting we’ve seen since his introduction in ASM #300! Ryan Stegman kills it with incredible artwork, and Donny’s writing is on point throughout. Highly recommended. Snag the first volume and get on board!

In VENOM VOL.1, an ancient and primordial evil has been awakened beneath the streets of New York. With it, something equally evil has been awakened in that most wicked of web-slingers: Venom!

The symbiote may still be a Lethal Protector of innocents in New York, but this never-before-seen threat could possibly force Venom to relinquish everything it holds dear – including its human host, Eddie Brock!

As Eddie and Venom summon the strength to defend New York against the most powerful foe they’ve ever faced, there’s one more thing standing in their way: Miles Morales, Spider-Man! Two of the hottest creators in comics today, Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman, join forces to deliver a Venom adventure a thousand years in the making! Collecting VENOM (2018) #1-6.

VENOM VOL.2 ABYSS – The 2nd volume in the Cates / Stegman VENOM run, and it’s every bit as good, if not better than the first.

In VENOM VOL.2, is it Venom no more?!

Just when you thought the blockbuster story of Venom couldn’t get any more intense, Donny Cates turns the world of Eddie Brock on its head – again!

But this time it won’t be dragons and god-hosts and breakneck action.

No, no. This time Eddie’s going through an emotional meat grinder the likes of which has never been seen in the Marvel Universe!

As Eddie finds himself truly alone for the first time in a long time, the silence is deafening.

Plus: San Francisco offers anything but a happy homecoming thanks to Eddie’s estranged father – and the little brother he never knew he had. Will Eddie’s return to his old stomping grounds reveal secrets better kept buried? Collecting VENOM (2018) #7-12.

MAXIMUM CARNAGE– The story that started it all for Cletus Kasady — MAXIMUM CARNAGE!

Not only do we see the introduction of Carnage, and all the mayhem he’s capable of bringing, but we also see the seeds planted for so much of what would impact the world of Marvel’s symbiotes down the road.

A must-read, make sure you snag the full trade paperback!

The perennial fan-favorite collection, back in print! Carnage, the spawn of Venom, has assembled an army of Spider-Man’s criminally insane adversaries to spread his message of hostility, chaos and wholesale slaughter: Carrion, Demogoblin, Shriek and the Spider-Man Doppelganger!

Outmanned and overpowered, the wall-crawler must recruit his own band of super-beings to combat the rising tide of evil: Black Cat, Cloak & Dagger, Firestar, Captain America, Deathlok and … Venom?! Spider-Man’s worst enemy becomes his uneasy ally in the battle to halt Carnage’s mad rampage.

But when he finds himself at odds with a number of his allies, who want to finish Carnage and his cronies once and for all, Spider-Man must decide whether to violate his personal code of honor to rid the world of pure evil. Can the web-slinger find an alternative before it’s too late?

Either choice carries dire consequences! Collects AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (Vol. 1) #378-380, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN #201-203, SPIDER-MAN #35-37, SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED #1 and #2, and WEB OF SPIDER-MAN #101-103.

VENOM LETHAL PROTECTOR TP – The iconic first limited series of the ultimate anti-hero – LETHAL PROTECTOR is pretty much the gold standard for a VENOM story, and sets the bar pretty darn high.

In fact, it was so good, it gave birth to a TON of gnarly spin-off series that were pretty killer as well!

What’s the scoop on it? Venom – alien symbiote and defender of the innocent! When Eddie Brock heads West, there’s no shortage of enemies waiting to test his resolve – including the Jury!

Plus: Spider-Man meets Venom’s father!

And Venom gives birth to a whole new horde of sinister symbiotes! It’s the original Venom in his first – and deadliest – solo series! Collecting VENOM: LETHAL PROTECTOR #1-6.

VENOM: PLANET OF THE SYMBIOTES – Want a great back story on the various Symbiotes, and their alien origins? PLANET OF THE SYMBIOTES dropped a lot of the seeds that would eventually help develop into the iconic run that Cates has been building on with Stegman in VENOM and now ABSOLUTE CARNAGE!

Fearing the growing influence of his “other,” Eddie Brock takes the drastic step of splitting himself from the Venom symbiote!

But the unwitting result is a full-scale invasion by its alien race! As more and more humans are taken as hosts, Eddie must team with Spider-Man and the Scarlet Spider to save Earth from being overrun.

And to do so, they must journey to the Planet of the Symbiotes! But whose side will the Venom symbiote be on?

And amid all the chaos, Carnage awakens from his coma – and plans to absorb as many symbiotes as he can! Can our heroes deal with a 50-foot-tall psychopath?

It’s a symbiotic sci-fi super hero spectacular! Collecting material from AMAZING SPIDER-MAN SUPER SPECIAL, SPIDER-MAN SUPER SPECIAL, VENOM SUPER SPECIAL, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN SUPER SPECIAL and WEB OF SPIDER-MAN SUPER SPECIAL.

Use our ABSOLUTE CARNAGE Checklist to collect the entire series!

Third Eye Faithful, you know that we love hosting amazing creators and that you all have the best time with these events! We’re so stoked to be able to bring you another signing, this time with LITTLE GIRLS writer NICHOLAS AFLLEJE and artist SARAH DELAINE!
You guys know that we’ve been loving pretty much everything that’s been coming out of Image Comics this year; they’ve dropped some of our favorite things like BLACKBIRD, FAIRLADY, LITTLE BIRD, DIE, and many, many more. So it’s safe to say, that LITTLE GIRLS is definitely going to be a book you have to add to your shelves. Weaving an unsettling plot alongside a relatable story of growing up, dealing with normal kid stuff, and oh, a brain-eating twist, Little Girls is bound to be a favorite sooner than later!
Sarah DeLaine has performed many roles within the comic book industry for over a decade, but she prefers creating comics best of all. Her work has been featured in Aftershock’s Shock Anthology, and she has contributed to such titles as Roche Limit and Enormous.
Nicholas is teaming up with Sarah DeLaine for the first time on his debut graphic novel in LITTLE GIRLS! Nicholas Aflleje writes fiction late at night from within the confines of his residence in Jacksonville, Florida.
So, Third Eye Faithful, get stoked, and make sure you join us on June 19th, 2019 from 7pm-8pm and help us celebrate LITTLE GIRLS VOL. 1!
 

What’s the scoop on LITTLE GIRLS?

Something hunts people on the outskirts of town…
Sam and Lielet are two new friends living in Ethiopia. They’re dealing with the kind of problems that all kids have: judgmental social cliques, condescending adults, alienation… and a legendary brain-eating monster straight out of folklore. Sure, it’s not going to be easy, but all they have to do is live through it.
Showcasing a quietly unsettling plot and building tension similar to NICK DRNASO’s Sabrina and ADRIAN TOMINE’s Killing and Dying, debut creative team NICHOLAS AFLLEJE and SARAH DeLAINE construct a poignant story of otherness and mystery.

SAT 7/13/19: Reaver #1 Launch Signing with Justin Jordan

Click here for event info on FACEBOOK.

Third Eye Faithful, you know that we love hosting amazing creators and that you all have the best time with these events! We’re so stoked to be able to bring you another signing, this time with REAVER writer JUSTIN JORDAN!
If it’s one thing we’ve found out about Image Comics this year, its that they’re absolutely killing it with their releases this year! Between titles like DIE, EXCELLENCE, LITTLE BIRD, FAIRLADY, and more, there’s something absolutely everyone will love. A dark, grim fantasy adventure, REAVER is no exception to the unreal quality of storytelling Image has been laying out on us this year!
So, Third Eye Faithful, get stoked, and make sure you join us on July 13th, 2019 from 11am-1pm and help us celebrate REAVER #1!

What’s the scoop on REAVER?

The continent of Madaras once promised a new start for settlers, but 200 years after its discovery, the war rages on.
Deep within this savage and untamed land, a darkness builds at that must be stopped at all costs. To do so, the Imperials assemble six of its most despicable prisoners-a turncoat, a skin eater, a sorcerer and his bodyguard, a serial killer, and the Devil’s Son-the only ones who can stop the end of the new world. They are Hell’s Half-Dozen.
Join JUSTIN JORDAN (LUTHER STRODE) and REBEKAH ISAACS (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) for REAVER-a dark, grim fantasy for a post-Game of Thrones world.
 

Our favorite works by JUSTIN JORDAN

One of our favorite works by Justin is the series LUTHER STRODE!
Luther Strode is your average slightly nerdy, extremely enthusiastic comic-loving fan trying to graduate high school, and make the girl he digs so much notice him — while not getting his butt kicked along the way.
One day, Luther discovers an ad in an old comic book in the style of those Charles Atlas GET RIPPED ads, and sends away for the regimen to turn himself into a musclebound He-Man.
What he gets instead is an instructional manual from a murder cult as old as mankind that does everything it promised — and more.
Unaware that the instructions he’s following are turning him into a unique breed of super-predator, and indoctrinating him into a dynasty that includes killers ranging from JACK THE RIPPER to GENGHIS KHAN, Luther does what any young man gifted with supernatural powers would do: he puts on a costume and decides to fight crime.
It’s just — well, sometimes he hits a little too hard, and sometimes, the thirst for blood is a bit too strong.
This is Luther Strode, and we love it. Imagine if Mark Millar’s KICK-ASS crossed paths with DRAGON BALL Z, and combined into one.

You know the way the line goes, right? With great power, comes great responsibili–… no, no wait, that’s not quite the one we’re looking for.
With great power comes a terrible curse.
What would you do to save your small, forgotten town? Joe Chamberlain would do absolutely anything. Including making a deal with the devil. That’s where the terrible curse comes in; now, Joe is cursed to become Brimstone, wielding the power of fire and destruction.
Seeking vengeance, Joe must find and destroy the demon he made the deal with that made him Brimstone; but can he control his fiery powers and leave the town he was trying to save intact? Or will the pain and power rip him apart from the inside out?

WED 6/12/19 FAIRLADY #1 Signing with Brian Schirmer

Click here for info on FACEBOOK

Third Eye Faithful, you know that we love hosting amazing creators and that you all have the best time with these events! We’re so stoked to be able to bring you another signing, this time with FAIRLADY writer BRIAN SCHIRMER!
We have absolutely loved FAIRLADY. It’s fast becoming one of our favorite Image books right alongside hard-hitters like LITTLE BIRD and DIE. Before we even had the chance to read the book when it came out, we were struck by the cover and knew that this one was a MUST READ. If you’ve been following along like we have since the release, you know how darn good this book is!
So, Third Eye Faithful, get stoked, and make sure you join us on June 12th, 2019 from 7pm-8pm and help us celebrate FAIRLADY #1!

So, what’s the scoop on FAIRLADY #1?

Every fantasy epic ends with a war. But what happens when the war is over?
After posing as a man to join the army, Jenner Faulds returns home to The Feld for a new start as a “Fairman”-a specially licensed private investigator.
But sexism didn’t end on the battlefield, and as the only “Fairlady,” Jenner gets stuck with the cases nobody else wants.
Hitting the streets to solve The Feld’s overlooked mysteries,  Jenner finds that the smallest cases hide the biggest secrets.
Writer Brian Schirmer, artist Claudia Balboni (Star Trek), and colorist Marissa Louise team up for FAIRLADY—an all-new series with the procedural case-solving of Magnum P.I. and Fables, but set in a vibrant, RAT QUEENS-like high fantasy world. Plus, this—and every—issue contains a complete 30-page story!

OTHER PROJECTS BY Brian Schirmer!

In a dreamlike version of the Old West, Tom Ketchum struggles to clear his name-and stay alive-when he’s mistaken for wanton outlaw “Black Jack” Ketchum.
With the aid of his talking sidearm, a secretive gambler, and a mute girl with a Winchester, Tom evades the mysterious Union and its supernatural enforcers, the faceless Dusters, as he’s forced to question his identity, his sanity, and his very existence.

In this alternate history of 19th century Europe, Dracula, Frankenstein’s Monster, and a certain Egyptian resident don’t lurk in the darkness – they’re world leaders, struggling to hold their nations together amid assassination plots, romantic betrayals, and political intrigues.
That’s the world of our story. The setting. And a couple of the major players. But, it’s about a great many things – love, loss, mistrust, espionage, the murkiness of “truth” – and hope in the face of all of that.

Third Eye Faithful, you know that we love hosting amazing creators and that you all have the best time with these events! We’re so stoked to be able to bring you another signing, this time with TEEN TITANS RAVEN writer KAMI GARCIA!
Raven is one of our favorite Teen Titans, and we’re super stoked about Kami Garcia’s take on the character! In this new story, we get to follow Raven’s journey as she discovers who she is, the life she wants to have, and the person she’s destined to be.
So, Third Eye Faithful, get stoked, and make sure you join us on June 29th, 2019 from 11am-1pm and help us celebrate TEEN TITANS RAVEN: DC INK!

So, what’s the scoop on Teen Titans Raven?

When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom-and Raven’s memory-she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother’s family and finish her senior year of high school.
Starting over isn’t easy. Raven remembers how to solve math equations and make pasta, but she can’t remember her favorite song or who she was before the accident. When strange things start happening-things most people would consider impossible-Raven starts to think it might be better not to know who she was in her previous life.
But as she grows closer to her foster sister, Max, her new friends, and Tommy Torres, a guy who accepts her for who she is now, Raven has to decide if she’s ready to face what’s buried in the past…and the darkness building inside her.
 

OTHER PROJECTS BY Kami Garcia!

Kami Garcia takes a new approach with THE X-FILES ORIGINS: AGENT OF CHAOS and serves it up to a younger audience who wants to dabble in some of the X-Files goodness! X-Files Origins: Agents of Chaos is a combination of a pair of YA novels about younger versions of our favorite Mulder and Scully.
Mulder’s story, AGENTS OF CHAOS and Scully’s story, DEVIL’S ADVOCATE make up the Origins book, and each story is set in the spring of 1979, when serial murder, the occult, and government conspiracy were highlighted in the news.
Have you always wanted to know what made Mulder become a believer, and what made Scully become a skeptic? This is book is the way to find out!
 

Her heart has to break before it can open.
When star soccer player Peyton Rios receives an offer from her first-choice college, senior year starts off exactly as planned. But when Peyton uncovers her boyfriend’s dark secret, she confronts him―and finds herself falling down a flight of stairs. Peyton’s knee―and maybe her dream of going pro―is shattered. Everyone is talking: Was she pushed, or did she fall? Peyton knows the truth, even if no one believes her.
He has to let someone in before it’s too late.
With her future on the line, Peyton goes to stay with her uncle in a small Tennessee town to focus on her recovery. Dating is the last thing on her mind―until she meets sweet, sexy Owen Law.
But Peyton doesn’t trust her heart, especially when she senses that Owen is hiding something. When their secrets are finally exposed, Peyton has to decide if love is worth fighting for.
