RICHMOND FB EVENT PAGE || ST MARY’S FB EVENT PAGE || ANNAPOLIS FB EVENT PAGE

Listen Third Eye.  You know we are all about bringing you the biggest and best in everything comics and collectibles.  Between new releases, new creator events and a brand new store in RICHMOND – we pretty much run on coffee, pizza and our love of comics!  Speaking of new; we’ve got another first for everyone.  We are STOKED to announce our first Third Eye Creator Signing Tour featuring MATT MINER (GWAR ORGASMAGGEDON, CRITICAL  HIT) and CLAY MCCORMACK (REDLINE) for their new book POSER..  What does that mean?  It means that Matt and Clay will be signing at ALL THREE Third Eye locations!  Yeah, we told you this was big.
Matt Miner is a New  York Times featured comic book writer, pit bull rescuer, and aging punk living in Queens, NY with his wife and millions of dogs.  Matt’s first series Liberator is a flagship title from the perpetually buzzworthy Black Mask Studios, released to critical acclaim in the publisher’s debut slate of comics.  Matt is well known for his politically charged and punk rock infused work including GWAR: Orgasmageddon for Dynamite Entertainment, Toe Tag Riot, and Critical Hit for Black Mask Studios, and Poser for Waxwork Comics.
Clay McCormack is a veteran artist of the independent comics scene, and in addition to Poser he is the artist on Redline from Oni Press. He has also had work featured on the pages and covers of books by IDW, Image, Boom, Sean Murphy’s Cafe Racer, and Heavy Metal Magazine. His previous work also includes being the writer, artist, and creator of the multi-award winning online graphic novel Dead Meat, he’s seen the Exorcist 167 times, and it keeps getting funnier every single time he sees it.
We gotta tell ya, when we got the opportunity to bring these two guys in, we knew we had to make it a HUGE event.  POSER is a breath of fresh air in the world of superhero reboots and we can’t wait for you guys to get your hands on issue one on 9/5/18.  You can catch the guys at the shops on the following days and times!
THIRD EYE RICHMOND: Friday, 9/21 6PM – 8PM
THIRD EYE ST MARYS: Saturday, 9/22 11AM – 1PM
THIRD EYE ANNAPOLIS: Saturday, 9/22 3PM – 5PM
 
What’s the scoop on POSER?


Anyone who has been to our stores know that we are BIG fans of all things 80s punk and horror.  Heck, we even have a section of the store dedicated to it.  That’s why when Poser appeared on our radar, we knew it was something we had to get behind!
We’ve all heard it called out before.  Maybe at a show. Maybe toward a shady character. Maybe you’ve called someone it before.
Poser.
Someone who tries desperately to fit into a profile, or scene that they are not apart of.
Matt Miner and Clay Mccormick take the concept of a Poser, turned it into an urban legend, and unleashed him into a world that of course, has shunned him.  Will the Poser wreck havock on current day Las Angeles as he did in Redondo Beach in 1982?  Or will a group of unlikely punks take him down before it’s too late?
POSER is a love letter to the underground Los Angeles punk scene, that explores the concepts of “sex, drugs and rock and roll” through the captivating lens of an 80s slasher flick.  One of the COOLEST things is its accompanying vinyl soundtrack.

SAT 7/7/18 MAE signing with Gene Ha!

Happy Summer Solstice, Third Eye Faithful! We know for many, the best part of the summer is soaking up some sun pool or beachside with a cold beverage and a good book in your hand. For Team Third Eye, it’s all of the awesome creators that stop by to sign some books and chat about their latest works. This year, we’re kicking off the summer with the amazing GENE HA!
Gene has been in the game for a while now as both an artist and writer, and has worked for the likes of MARVEL, DC, VERTIGO and more. His work on TOP 10 with Alan Moore earned him three Eisner Awards, so yeah, he’s a big deal folks. For the past two years, Gene has been building a world of his own with his critically acclaimed young adult series MAE, and it quickly became one of our favorite go-tos for fantasy lovers of ALL ages.
We’re so stoked to see where Mae’s adventures lead, and we know you are too! That’s why we when Gene agreed to come in for his first THIRD EYE signing, we knew it was going to be something spectacular!

What’s the scoop on MAE?

Mae’s sister Abbie has been missing for seven years. So when she just shows up in a bar one night, Mae is more than a little shocked. Even more shocking is where Abbie has been–a parallel world in which she was queen of a cat army and battled monsters of seemingly infinite variety.

And this is just our story’s beginning. When monsters and other impossible creatures start making their way to our world, and abduct the girls’ father, Mae joins Abbie in a strange and fantastical universe in which everything they thought they knew–about themselves, their family, their world–is challenged.

SAT 7/28/18: THE NEW WORLD #1 Launch Signing w/ Tradd Moore & Heather Moore

Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK.

What’s going on, Third Eye Faithful.  We all know it’s been a MAJOR year for Image.  Whether it’s the gorgeous artwork of Isola, or the mind melding storytelling in Gideon Falls, we’ve been absolutely blown away by everything new coming from the powerhouse publisher.  That’s why when we saw that TRADD MOORE was teaming up with his wife HEATHER MOORE and longtime collaborative partner Ales Kot for THE NEW WORLD, we knew we had to work our magic
You guys may know Tradd from a little book called THE STANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE.  If not, stop whatever you’re going and pick it up right now.  His style is unlike any other, and always seems to hit our sweet spot of bizarre, bold and beautiful and this book is no different.  Heather makes her creator debut with THE NEW WORLD, and really comes out the gate swinging providing the with dramatic, eye catching colors to Tradd’s beautiful artwork.
We know THE NEW WORLD is going to blow you away, and that’s why we super stoked when TRADD MOORE and HEATHER MOORE agreed to come in, hang out and sign a few books for you guys.  What makes it even more special is that not only is this Heather’s debut as a creator, it’s also her first time signing at Third Eye!  This is going to be one you’re not gonna want to miss folks!

What’s the scoop on THE NEW WORLD?

The United States of America-after the Second Civil War.

Two lovers meet. One: a straight-edge vegan hacker anarchist boy with a penchant for messing with the State. The other: a chaotic, hedonistic cop with a reality TV show and a license to kill.  Seems like a match made in Hell, right?  Yet somehow, they find themselves in each other’s arms, and at the top of New California’s wanted list.

 We are BIG fans of love stories with a twist, and this is giving us MAJOR Romeo and Juliet mixed with Mad Max vibes

Like we mentioned before, this isn’t Ales and Tradd’s first time collaborating.  They really seemed to have caught lightening in a bottle with their work on ZERO and SECRET AVENGERS, and continue to blend daring storytelling with gorgeous art.  Add in Heather’s gorgeous coloring and you’ve got an unstoppable team.

Be sure to check out THE STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHOR STRODE!

Luther Strode is just your average geek until he sends for an exercise course from the back of an old comic book. What he gets is the instruction manual from a murder cult as old as mankind that does everything that it promised and more.
Snag a copy of the graphic novel, and get it signed by Tradd on 7/29/18!
