Third Eye Returns! All Third Eyes are OPEN normal hours for in-store shopping!

Third Eye Returns! We’re back and badder than ever!

Third Eye Faithful, we’re cueing up some LL Cool J, and spinning Bigger and Deffer, ’cause we’re back, and we’re badder than ever at all of our locations, and ready to bring you that Third Eye goodness you’ve been missing!

Third Eye Faithful — we just gotta tell ya: THANK YOU! Your patience has been amazing, and your support is forever appreciated!


OUR STORES ARE ALL NOW OPEN FOR NORMAL IN-STORE SHOPPING!


We know you’ve been extra patient with us as we adapt to the ways that we’re being told are OK to operate by our local government, and we can finally tell you: THIRD EYE IS OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR IN-STORE SHOPPING AND READY TO ROCK!


That’s right: no need to Call Ahead to be let in (with the new capacity requests, and the size of our super-stores, it’s rare we’ll ever hit the capacity requirements!), and no more brown paper on those doors — Third Eye is back in action, Third Eye Faithful!


SAFETY PRECAUTIONS


At the same time, we want to assure you that we’ve worked hard to take all the state and CDC guidelines very seriously, and have worked hard to add a ton of safety features to help make each store the perfect way to help you SHOP SAFE!


First off: we’ve made a bunch of improvements to the stores over the last couple of months, including floor decals to help with social distancing, public hand sanitizer stations, sneeze-guards at our checkout counters, and most importantly: daily health checks with our staff.

You can read more below about all that we’re doing to keep our spaces safe!


THE BIGGEST COMIC SHOPS IN THE WORLD… GIVE YOU PLENTY OF ROOM TO SOCIALLY DISTANCE.

You know us, Third Eye Faithful: we’re pretty humble, but considering the importance of space right now, we gotta shout it out: as one of the largest brick-n-mortar comic book and gaming stores in the world…. we’ve got you covered when it comes to being able to browse comfortably while maintaining safe social distancing.
Our stores are already laid out in a way to encourage open space for customers, and as such, we’re one of the best places you could come to Shop Safe and still have fun!


UNABLE TO VISIT US? IN AN AT RISK CATEGORY? WE STILL HAVE PLENTY OF ADDITIONAL OPTIONS TO HELP YOU SHOP SAFE!

Third Eye Faithful, we know that some of you may have loved ones who are in an at-risk category, or you yourself may be in an at-risk category when it comes to COVID-19, and as such, we’re continuing to offer our extra shopping features to help you SHOP THIRD EYE however works best for you.


In addition, to in-store shopping, these also include:

  • SAFE IN-STORE SHOPPING
  • CURBSIDE PICK-UP – LEARN HOW TO ORDER HERE
  • LOCAL HOME DELIVERY – DELIVERING WITHIN 40 MILES OF THIRD EYE ANNAPOLIS EVERY WEDNESDAY!
  • $5 FLAT RATE MAIL ORDER – CALL 410-897-0322 to order or visit SHOP.THIRDEYECOMICS.COM
  • PRIVATE SHOPPING APPOINTMENTS WHEN STORE IS CLOSED. SCHEDULE HERE.

We’ve put together a nifty infographic to help you see what we’ve got going on at each of our locations to help you keep on Shopping Safe during all the craziness we’re seeing in the world right now!

Remember: FUN IS ESSENTIAL, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re dedicated to making sure you get your daily dose of it!

STORE HOURS, FEATURES, AND MORE — WHAT TO EXPECT BEGINNING 5/29/20!

Third Eye Faithful, we’ve been eagerly awaiting this moment: we’re able to swing our doors wide open, and with plenty of proper social distancing, let you in all of our locations like normal.

Beginning 6/1/20, our county has followed along with the State of Maryland in allowing us to open the Annapolis Third Eye locations at a capacity that’s much more realistic for our two mega-stores than what we were operating under prior (which was very, very limited capacity).

We’re hoping this will be the final time we have to make a post like this in regards to what we’re doing at Third Eye (there’s been A LOT of rapid-fire changes over the last few months, and we’ve been working hard to adapt as quickly as possible through it all.

So, let’s start talking about what’s on the way…

STORE HOURS & FEATURES!

ANNAPOLIS – THIRD EYE COMICS & GAMES

Our Annapolis stores are HUGE. As two of the largest comic & game stores in the entire country (maybe even the world!), they’re perfectly set up to help accommodate social distancing (so much room to browse and keep a 6′ distance from others!), and are conveniently located right off RT.50!

  • Disinfecting of high-touch surfaces (door knobs, back issue drawer handles, counter area, faucets in bathrooms, etc.) throughout the day.
  • Overnight UVC light sterilization procedures for the sales floors of each store. 
  • Enhanced daily general cleaning procedures for each store (we were already pretty darn clean, but now — even more so!)
  • Installation of public hand sanitizer stations, touchless paper towel dispensers, touchless soap dispensers, and more.
  • Installation of plexiglass sneeze guards at all cash registers. 

EMPLOYEE HEALTH PROCEDURES TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY & THEIRS

We’ve also introduced some policies in our stores to help ensure the safety of all visitors to our stores, staff and customer alike. 

  • Touchless infrared thermometer temperature checks at the start of an employee’s shift with the employee’s consent.
  • Masks provided by Third Eye for all employees.
  • Paid sick leave for ALL employees, part-time and full-time.
  • Installation of public hand sanitizer stations, touchless paper towel dispensers, touchless soap dispensers, and more.

NEW STORE FEATURES TO HELP YOU SHOP SAFE & BROWSE OUR STORE LIKE NORMAL! 🙂

  • Floor decals to encourage proper distance between customers.
  • Enhancing the touchless nature of transactions with new systems to encourage touchlessness (i.e no need to sign via iPad for credit card changes, no need to key in email address for Belly points, etc.)
  • Face masks for our staff.
  • Enhanced ventilation throughout the day to help prevent stale air.

IN AN AT RISK CATEGORY BUT STILL WANT TO SHOP THIRD EYE? 

WE CAN HELP WITH A FEW DIFFERENT METHODS, INCLUDING SCHEDULED SHOPPING APPOINTMENTS PRIOR TO STORE HOURS, CURBSIDE PICK-UP AND MORE!

We realize that some of you may have conditions that make going out to the store a little nervous. We’ve watched what many stores did during the height of the COVID-19 crisis before things began to chill out — and have taken some notes, so we can help you get your daily dose of Third Eye.

  • SCHEDULED SHOPPING APPOINTMENTS PRIOR TO STORE HOURS *Annapolis Only* – You can email steve@thirdeyecomics.com for us to schedule an appointment for you to come visit our store during hours when it’s not open. We’ll send you a calendar of availability, and a brief explanation of how the process works. We know that our shop is a very important place for many of you and we want to do everything in our power to ensure you can experience it how it’s meant to be: in person!
  • CONTACTLESS CURBSIDE PICK-UP *ALL LOCATIONS* – If you know what you’d like in advance, you can call in to your local Third Eye location & set up a curbside order. We’ll also have an option on our online store to order for Curbside Pick-Up as well.

  • ZOOM PERSONAL SHOPPING – We’re going to continue to offer our PERSONAL VIRTUAL SHOPPER service, read more about it here.

All Third Eyes Open for SAFE In-Store Shopping and More!

Get ready, because 5/15/20 — all Third Eye locations are re-opening for SAFE in-store shopping and more! Find out all the details! ALL LOCATIONS ARE ALLOWING LIMITED CAPACITY BASED ON LOCAL CITY, COUNTY OR STATE GUIDELINES!

PLEASE CALL YOUR LOCAL THIRD EYE TO FIND OUT MORE!

Third Eye Faithful, we’re absolutely stoked to bring you some of the very best news we’ve ever had: our stores are once again open for you to come on in, and enjoy.

With the recent announcements from the governors of Maryland and Virginia along with an incredible decision by the Mayor of Annapolis, we’re lucky enough to be able to open all of the Third Eyes up for you to come on in, and visit once again.

But, please, take note: there are a few things that we’ve had to put in place in compliance with our state governments to make this possible.

Read on for more details on that below!

First and most importantly: ALL Third Eyes are OPEN for IN-STORE SHOPPING!!

That’s right: you can come in, and browse just like the pre-COVID days! Please note: we’ve taken some precautions to help make the experience safe for all, but good news: in-store shopping!

We do have to keep a limit on how many people are able to be in the store, so please don’t take offense if we let you know we’ve reached our capacity and request that you wait outside.

Store Hours for each Third Eye

Just like your favorite DC and Marvel icons, it’s time to don a mask, and Third Eye Faithful, one of our temporary requirements at our stores is for you to wear a mask.

ENHANCED CLEANING & SANITATION POLICIES

We had already instituted these prior to the COVID-19 outbreaks, but we’re currently increasing all of our policies, and are in the process of implementing:

  • Deep cleans of all stores by an outside vendor specializing in commercial deep cleans.
  • Disinfecting of high-touch surfaces (door knobs, back issue drawer handles, counter area, faucets in bathrooms, etc.) throughout the day.

  • Installation of plexiglass sneeze guards at all cash registers. (COMING SOON)

EMPLOYEE HEALTH PROCEDURES TO ENSURE YOUR SAFETY & THEIRS

  • Masks provided by Third Eye for all employees.
  • Paid sick leave for ALL employees, part-time and full-time.
  • Installation of public hand sanitizer stations, touchless paper towel dispensers, touchless soap dispensers, and more.

  • Enhanced ventilation throughout the day to help prevent stale air.

THE STATUS OF IN-STORE EVENTS AT ALL THIRD EYE LOCATIONS

In compliance with our state’s request, we will be cancelling all of our in-store signing events & in-store play events. This is definitely a hard decision to make, as not only does it hurt the stores in a financial sense, but it also takes away some of the things we have the most fun coordinating.

However, the safety of our customers and our staff is our highest priority, and all of the guidelines so far have made the idea of large gatherings something we’re unable to promote.

We are working hard to come up with ideas on how to make things like release parties, and more still viable, as these are events that do not require prolonged exposure to gatherings, but events involving gatherings and prolonged exposure to others look to be something we are temporarily suspending.

For in-store signings, all cancelled signings will be re-scheduled for later in the year, once we are given the go ahead for PHASE 2 of the re-opening OR once we have figured out ways to make the events work without them being considered a large gathering.

If you have pre-paid for any VIP packages, and do not wish to wait until the event is re-scheduled – please email steve@thirdeyecomics.com and we will get you reimbursed. Please note ALL VIPs will be honored at the re-scheduled date, if you’re OK with hanging onto it until then.

For in-store play events, we will be cancelling all in-store play at Third Eye Games until the state guidelines allow for us to host gatherings again. While this is an impact on the store (nearly 50% of Third Eye Games is event space, which will now go unused), we realize that it’s the responsible and smart thing to do until we’re advised otherwise.

In the meantime, we have repurposed fixtures, and materials, from our other locations to convert the event space into retail space, so that we can hopefully offset the absence of in-store play with other categories until we’re able to resume in-store play.

For sales, release parties, and more, we are working hard to come up with ways that we can still bring you the fun that our store is known for with things like midnight releases of hit comics, and more, while still adhering to and obeying the guidelines of the state.

Our play space will be returning in a new and upgraded format as soon as our state gives us the thumbs up to bring it back!

If you have pre-paid any events, and wish to get a reimbursement instead of waiting for a re-schedule, please email steve@thirdeyecomics.com and we’ll get you taken care of with a reimbursement.

If you’d rather wait until the play space returns and events are re-scheduled, all pre-paid registrations will still be valid.

IN AN AT RISK CATEGORY BUT STILL WANT TO SHOP THIRD EYE?

WE CAN HELP WITH A FEW DIFFERENT METHODS, INCLUDING SCHEDULED SHOPPING APPOINTMENTS PRIOR TO STORE HOURS, CURBSIDE PICK-UP AND MORE!

We realize that some of you may have conditions that make going out to the store a little nervous. We’ve watched what many stores did during the height of the COVID-19 crisis before things began to chill out — and have taken some notes, so we can help you get your daily dose of Third Eye.

  • SCHEDULED SHOPPING APPOINTMENTS PRIOR TO STORE HOURS *Annapolis Only* – You can email steve@thirdeyecomics.com for us to schedule an appointment for you to come visit our store during hours when it’s not open. We’ll send you a calendar of availability, and a brief explanation of how the process works. We know that our shop is a very important place for many of you and we want to do everything in our power to ensure you can experience it how it’s meant to be: in person!
  • CONTACTLESS CURBSIDE PICK-UP *ALL LOCATIONS* – If you know what you’d like in advance, you can call in to your local Third Eye location & set up a curbside order. We’ll also have an option on our online store to order for Curbside Pick-Up as well.
  • $5 FLAT RATE SHIPPING – We are going to continue to offer our $5 flat rate shipping option within the U.S for the duration of the COVID-19 challenge.
  • ZOOM PERSONAL SHOPPING – We’re going to continue to offer our PERSONAL VIRTUAL SHOPPER service, read more about it here.

BATTLE BONDS! PERKS, REWARDS, AND TIMELINES!

In the coming days, we’ll be sending out some emails to all BATTLE BOND buyers to let them know about some new perks we’re adding to their packages, as well as some timelines for some of the reward levels unlocked.

Some of the projects (like the mural on the back of the store, the custom chairs with people’s names on them at Third Eye Games, and more) need production time, so we’ll need to get in touch with you early to get those set up.

You should start seeing your BATTLE BOND emails coming through by 5/23, and then, shortly after, you should be receiving a special surprise in the mail or for pick-up in store ( depending on the option you chose ) depending on your BOND LEVEL, which features some goodies, like your BATTLE BONDS t-shirt, and more!

SHOP SAFE, SHOP THIRD EYE – SUPPORT YOUR LCS!

We’re going to be honest with you, Third Eye Faithful: the COVID-19 crisis has been very tough on us, and as we return to normal, we’re going to be counting on you to help us continue to make it through this.

What’s the easiest and best way you can help support? Shop Third Eye. Every purchase helps keep your pals at Third Eye going, and as we adjust and adapt to whatever the world is throwing at us in regards to this thing — we really do need your help.

For those of you who wish to help even more, we’ve also got a program we’re running until the COVID-19 challenge has passed, with THIRD EYE BATTLE BONDS. You can read about those here.

Third Eye: Phase 0 Re-Openings – Starting 5/16/20

WELCOME TO PHASE 0!

Third Eye Faithful, we’re not going to lie: this COVID-19 challenge has been the toughest thing we’ve ever faced as a business.

Your support through it all has been the shining light that’s helped guide us, and keep us moving ahead, and while we were hoping for good things with the announcement Governor Hogan made on 5/13/20, it looks like things just got a whole lot tougher for your pals at Third Eye.

Why is that? While the state of Maryland may open (and we think that the conditions put out by Governor Hogan were very fair), the County Executive of Anne Arundel County (where our flagship Annapolis stores are based) has given an indefinite amount of time that we are unable to open our doors. We are now allowed to do Curbside, and we believe there’s other ways we can continue to serve you until we’re allowed to open our doors.

The hardship we face as a business being shutdown is bad enough, but without any kind of timeline to plan for — things got a lot tougher for your pals at Third Eye.

But, Third Eye Faithful, we will get through this, because we know that YOU are here for us, and now more than ever, we need you to help join the FIGHT FOR FUN!

With PHASE 0, we’ve put together a comprehensive look at the options, store hours, and more for all of our locations to help you Shop Third Eye during the COVID-19 crisis.

We also have a very cool new feature we’ll be unveiling later this week that’s part of PHASE 0!

PHASE 0 UPDATE: ANNAPOLIS Stores – Hours, Shopping Options, and More!

Anne Arundel County has followed the re-opening of the state of Maryland, but still has restrictions on Third Eye and other retail businesses, but we’re working hard to continue to provide you a great experience until the county allows us to follow the State’s lead and open our doors to our favorite people: YOU!

Third Eye Faithful, by now, we think it’s pretty obvious: Mr. J holds a pretty special place in all of our hearts here at Third Eye.

Maybe it’s the nostalgia we feel from our first year opening happening to also be the same year as the release of the iconic Christopher Nolan DARK KNIGHT film, featuring Heath Ledger’s incredible portrayal of the Joker, or maybe it’s just from growing up surrounded by so many great Joker tales through the ’80s, ’90s, and 2000s.

Strange Academy #1 Launch Signing w/ Skottie Young

Click here for event info on FACEBOOK

Click here to pre-order Strange Academy VIP Packages

Third Eye Faithful, one of our favorite superstars in comics is the one and only Skottie Young, who many of you know from the incredible MIDDLEWEST & I HATE FAIRYLAND Image series, as well as his iconic “Little Marvel” variant covers throughout the years.

Now, we’re bringing the one and only Skottie Young to Third Eye to kick off the most exciting project of his career to date: STRANGE ACADEMY!

This incredible new ongoing series, set in continuity with the Marvel Universe, loaded with the debut 1st appearances of several new characters, and setting the stage for an entirely new corner of the Marvel U to be explored is going to be one of the biggest books of 2020.

And, guess what? We’re bringing series creator & writer Skottie Young to Third Eye to kick it off in true Third Eye Fashion!

What’s the scoop on STRANGE ACADEMY? 

The Marvel Universe has mysteriously changed in such an alarming way that Doctor Strange has done what he’s avoided for decades; he’s opened a school for young sorcerers.

Young people from around the world with aptitude in magic have been brought together in New Orleans to study the Mystic Arts under Strange, Brother Voodoo, the Ancient One, the Scarlet Witch, Magik, Hellstrom and ALL your favorite Marvel magicians.

But with all the new magical threats, is it too late?!

If you took the timeless fun and wonder of something like Harry Potter and then blended it against the bigger-than-life bombastic awesomeness of the MARVEL UNIVERSE, you’d get STRANGE ACADEMY, and we’re loving EVERY SECOND OF IT!

Other Projects by Skottie Young

I HATE FAIRYLAND is one of our all-time faves, and one of Skottie’s most beloved works!
In I HATE FAIRYLAND, we get an Adventure Time/Alice in Wonderland-style epic that smashes it’s cute little face against Tank Girl/Deadpool-esque violent madness has arrived.

In an adventure that ain’t for the little kiddies, (unless you have super cool parents, then whatever), you’ll meet Gert-a six year old girl who has been stuck in the magical world of Fairyland for thirty years and will hack and slash her way through anything to find her way back home.

Join Gert and her giant battle-axe on a delightfully blood soaked journey to see who will survive the girl who HATES FAIRYLAND!

This incredible new IMAGE COMICS ongoing series has quickly become one of our favorite reads, month in and month out, and if you haven’t yet gotten into it: this first trade paperback collecting 1-6 for just $16.99 is the perfect place to start!

The lands between the coasts are vast, slow to change, and full of hidden magics.

This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 4/22/20

WHITE ASH #4 continues the incredible modern fantasy epic! A must for fans of MIDDLEWEST, Y: THE LAST MAN and more!

We’ve been loving this incredible modern fantasy series in the vein of MIDDLEWEST, SWEET TOOTH, and Y: THE LAST MAN, and are super stoked for issue #4 this week!

In WHITE ASH #4, a tragic death leaves the residents of White Ash reeling.  More of the Town’s secret past is revealed as we get our first glimpse of the “Longest Night.” The incomparable Glarien makes her debut appearance cutting a bloody path on to the scene.

What is WHITE ASH? Welcome to White Ash, a small smudge of a town in western Pennsylvania, where mining is a generational calling and the secrets are buried deeper than the coal in the mountain.

As Aleck Zwerg tries to escape that legacy and head off to college, he falls into the orbit of the enigmatic Lillian Alden.

Together, they race down a dangerous path, leading Aleck to uncover a secret about his family that changes everything he knows about himself and White Ash. And now, if he leaves, there will be no one left to protect the people of the town from an ancient evil that has just returned.

NORTH BEND #2 continues the eerie mind-control meets the supernatural meets Cold War madness we loved in issue #1! Imagine THE AMERICANS TV series meets HP LOVECRAFT!

We LOVED the debut of NORTH BEND, as it takes the eerie almost otherworldly paranoia of Lovecraftian horror and blends it with the Cold War thrills of THE AMERICANS.

In the not too distant future, the U.S. is at war — against Russia, and its own people. The country is on the verge of economic collapse and political revolution.

Desperate to regain control, the CIA recruits Seattle DEA Agent Brendan Kruge to test an experimental mind control drug on unwitting Americans. Compelled by his sense of duty to his country, Brendan struggles to keep his life from falling apart as he tries to reconcile his personal beliefs with the security of the nation.

In issue #2, the cold war continues when a DEA agent is recruited to test a mind control drug on unwitting Americans. Brendan sets up the Seattle safe house, clashing with someone who puts the entire project at risk before it even gets off the ground. Meanwhile, Annie’s search for the stolen cash leads her down a road that could cost her everything.

WRETCHES #5 CONTINUES THE GRUNGY SCI-FI AWESOMENESS WE’VE COME TO LOVE! PART BLADE RUNNER, PART SAGA – A MUST READ!

We’ve been LOVING Wretches, and we’re pumped to see the 5th issue dropping this week!

What’s the scoop on it? Alone on the tough streets of an alien city, far from the lifeless planet they once called home, siblings Shea and Sean spent their youth struggling to survive. Still suffering emotionally from the loss of everything they’d ever known and loved, Shea and Sean have nothing else in the universe but each other.

Forever outrunning the horrors of their past, they survive the only way they know how- by hunting and killing sentient robots for profit!

Now, when the rough path that they had no chance to follow finally catches up to them, will they be able to keep each other safe or will they lose the only important thing they have left, each other?

In WRETCHES #5 this week, Sean is forced to help the twisted bot who’d kidnapped him in the first place, as he attempts to infiltrate an alien city and rob the local drug-lord.

The reward for his aid in this violent raid- the “promise” of getting Shea back in one-piece once they succeed.

After being taken through their slums, Shea begins to recognize that the average bots and their wants aren’t any different than those of humans – to live their lives in peace.

Unfortunately for her, these bots are still under the rule of a power-hungry tyrant, and her execution is imminent.

As he faces down new foes, and old, Cinder is about to learn that knowing magic, and actually practicing it, are two completely different things. The hit series continues with an all new adventure, featuring new interior artist Fei Chen!

New Comics return on 4/22/20 & 4/29/20 with DC Comics, Scout Comics, and more!

Need your NEW COMIC DAY fix? We’ve got you covered! Find out about the return of NEW COMICS on Wednesday 4/22/20 and 4/29/20

Third Eye Faithful, we know you’re itching for your next round of new releases, and we’re eager to help make it happen!

As many of you know, the printing process was temporarily stopped due to the challenges of COVID-19.

However, you know us, Third Eye Faithful: where there’s a will, there’s a way, and we’ve been busting our butts to help bring YOU some brand new releases to help tide you over while stuck inside!

The first NEW COMIC DAY since COVID-19 shutdowns began is WEDNESDAY 4/22/20 — with new releases from SCOUT COMICS, SOURCE POINT PRESS and more!

Third Eye Faithful: first off — on Wednesday 4/22/20, we’ve gotten in touch with some of our publishing partners, and will have brand new releases from publishers like SCOUT COMICS, SOURCE POINT PRESS, and more, available to hook you up on New Comic Wednesday 4/22/20!

We’ll be highlighting all of those titles this week coming up in our weekly THIS WEEK’S HIGHLIGHTS blog AND giving you the ability to order them for home delivery or mail order!

And, then on 4/29/20 — DC Comics returns to the racks with all new releases, and kicking back into a normal weekly schedule, paving the way for the return of ALL new comics sometime in mid-May!

Click here to browse the 4/29/20 releases, and pre-order now!

And, then following hot on the heels of 4/22/20, is Wednesday 4/29/20, which will be bringing a modest yet totally killer line-up of DC Comics releases to you, and even more importantly, will be resuming weekly releases from DC Comics!

On top of that – this just sets the stage and paves the way for the return of ALL new comics from all the publishers later in May!

But in the meantime, you’ll have your pals here at Third Eye bringing you weekly releases from DC Comics, Scout Comics, Source Point Press, and many others!

OK, so the whole COVID-19 thing has been a little confusing with new comics — what’s the scoop? Read our FAQ here!

So, there’s been no new comics since the week of 3/25/20? Correct. The printers had shutdown, along with many of our distributors, and as such, comics were put on a hiatus.

How about new graphic novels? I know you guys have been getting those, right? Absolutely – at Third Eye, we use a variety of distributors, and when we learned of the COVID-19 challenges, we quickly switched gears to another provider to keep new graphic novels coming for you guys.

OK, so now new comics are resuming? Gradually – much like the rest of the nation – this is a slow return, with publishers gradually returning back into rotation. Why is it a big deal? The return of DC Comics definitely signals that we’re very close to the return of ALL weekly new comics, and that’s why we waited until their announcement to bring NEW COMIC DAY back to Third Eye!

So, 4/22/20 is the official first NEW COMIC DAY since COVID-19 – what’ll be available? We’ll be highlighting all of those books in our weekly newsletter and our blog here at thirdeyecomics.com, but they’re from great rising star indie publishers like SCOUT COMICS, SOURCEPOINT PRESS, and more.

And, then 4/29/20, we get DC Comics — and more Indies, right? You bet!

What about the rest of the publishers, and of course, our pals at Marvel? The rest of the publishers are set to resume shipping mid-to-late May, and that includes Marvel, from what we know.

But, you’re currently getting graphic novels from all the publishers, including Marvel, right? We are! And you can see them every week on our blog and newsletter, beginning with 4/22/20’s shipment! 🙂

I have a Third Eye Pullbox – do I need to pre-order DC Comics via the link above or below? Nope, you can still manage your pullbox subscriptions like normal at thirdeyepullbox.com. The books will be auto-dropped into your pull box right when they release.

I don’t have a Third Eye Pullbox, but I love your store — and this is the extra motivation I needed to set up a box; how do I do that? 🙂 EASY! Go to thirdeyepullbox.com, and just follow the registration instructions. It’s a free service we provide to pull and hold your favorite comics each and every week!

I don’t want to subscribe to DC titles, but I want to make sure I get ’em, especially with how weird the COVID-19 situation has made distribution — what’s the best way to do that? EASY! We’ll be putting up each weeks titles every Friday for pre-order, so you can pre-order the Friday prior. We’re even giving you an early head-start with the ones releasing 4/29/20! 🙂

In DARK NIGHTS METAL, beyond our universe, there is the Multiverse … and beneath the Multiverse is a nightmare realm where every fear that has ever been felt on our Earth becomes reality. Now an evil force as old as time wants to drag us down into the shadows, into the realm of never-ending terror.

But when the door between worlds opens, it’s not just any nightmares that come spilling out. They call themselves the Dark Knights. Each one is a twisted version of Batman from a world where one of his worst fears has come true.

With the invasion underway and Batman trapped in the Dark Multiverse, the Justice League must undergo an impossible quest to find the mysterious metals capable of repelling the Dark Knights and their master, the fearsome Barbatos. If they fail, everything they’ve ever known will be plunged into eternal darkness. But the true horror is…what if they’re already too late?
