The Other History of the DC Universe #1

Academy Award-winning screenwriter John Ridley (12 Years a Slave, Let It Fall) examines the mythology of the DC Universe in this compelling new miniseries that reframes iconic moments of DC history and charts a previously unexplored sociopolitical thread as seen through the prism of DC Super Heroes who come from traditionally disenfranchised groups. This unique new series presents its story as prose by Ridley married with beautifully realized illustrations by Giuseppe Camuncoli and Andrea Cucchi. Issue #1 follows the story of Jefferson Pierce, the man who will one day become Black Lightning, as he makes his way from being a young track star to a teacher and, ultimately, to his role as a hero. Future issues focus on characters such as Karen and Mal Duncan, Tatsu Yamashiro, and Renee Montoya. Extensively researched and masterfully executed, The Other History of the DC Universe promises to be an experience unlike any other. You may think you know the history of the DC Universe…but the truth is far more complex. The Other History of the DC Universe isn’t about saving the world—it’s about having the strength to simply be who you are.

The Third Eye Guide to THE DEATH OF DOCTOR STRANGE

Will we solve the mystery of who killed Doctor Strange this September?

September is a huge month for Marvel, Third Eye Faithful. Between INFERNO, DARKHOLD, and now The Death of Doctor Strange, we’re in for a ton of Universe altering goodness from Marvel this year!

There are two big questions on everyone’s mind: who killed Stephen Strange, and how will the Marvel Universe cope without its Sorcerer Supreme? Writer Jed MacKay dives into the story of what will happen without the integral presence of Doctor Strange within the Marvel Universe.

What’s the scoop on The Death of Doctor Strange?

DEATH COMES FOR THE SORCERER SUPREME!
Doctor Stephen Strange is the world’s greatest neurosurgeon and Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme. He defends our planet from the supernatural and interdimensional threats no other hero is equipped to handle.

The final chapter in the life of Doctor Strange starts here by Jed MacKay and Lee Garbett!

Not only is the mystery of Doctor Strange’s death confined to this miniseries, but a one-shot featuring the students of Strange Academy explores what happens without their Headmaster.

Third Eye Faithful, we’ve been waiting for this one since it was originally announced last year!

ENTER THE PAGES OF THE DARKHOLD – AND LOSE YOUR MIND IN MIGHTY MARVEL FASHION! 
Critically acclaimed writer Steve Orlando joins forces with extraordinary artist Cian Tormey for a story that will delight and terrify! For hundreds of years, scholars and heroes alike have searched for the complete text of the Darkhold – a.k.a. the Book of the Damned, written by the elder god Chthon. Now one of the greatest sorcerers in the Multiverse has found it – and Chthon has found him. To save them all, the Scarlet Witch must gather the world’s greatest heroes…and unleash their inner darkness. Witness the Marvel Universe’s descent into chaos!

Scarlet Witch recruits some of the strongest characters across the Marvel Universe, heavy-hitters like Wasp, Spider-Man, Black Bolt, Blade, and Iron Man to help her combat the might of Doctor Doom with the Darkhold in his possession.

But in order to enter Chthon’s dimension and fight him, the heroes must read from the legendary Darkhold, which drives them utterly insane. Together, they’ll have to confront their inner darkness to overcome one of the most powerful mystical threats the Marvel Universe has ever faced.

The Third Eye Guide to DARK AGES

The Marvel Universe as we know it is about to undergo a drastic change.

Third Eye Faithful, Marvel is about to give us something serious to sink our teeth into this fall. Starting in September, Dark Ages takes us in a direction we don’t usually see – our favorite Marvel heroes fail. At the helm of this project is Tom Taylor (DCeased, All-New Wolverine) and he’s taking us on a wild, heartbreaking ride for some of Marvel’s biggest heroes. As the world is remade, fans will meet fascinating new versions of their favorite heroes as they fight to overcome insurmountable odds and restore hope to the universe.

Of the story, Taylor says: “Marvel’s DARK AGES is a story unlike any we’ve told before. And it all begins with the shocking revelation of what the Watcher has been watching for. A danger older than the Earth threatens everything. And for once, the heroes who have saved the planet time and again find themselves almost completely powerless in the face of it. X-Men and Avengers will assemble. Spider-people and the Fantastic Four will come together. Heroes for Hire will fight alongside Champions. But none of it will be enough. The lights are about to go out…forever.”

What’s the scoop on DARK AGES?

This is what the Watcher has been watching for!
•  A danger older than the Earth threatens everything. For once, the heroes who have saved the planet so many times are almost powerless in the face of it.
•  X-Men and Avengers assemble. Spider-People and Fantastic Four come together. Heroes for Hire fight alongside Champions.

The Third Eye Guide to SINISTER WAR

Our favorite webhead is in BIG trouble this summer as he becomes embroiled in the SINISTER WAR.

Things are looking pretty bleak for Spidey starting this July, Third Eye Faithful. With some of the biggest and baddest that have ever graced the pages of Spider-Man comics taking on our fearless web-slinger… and each other? What’s going to be left of a bunch fo Spider-Man’s most fearsome foes? What’s going to be left of Spider-Man himself?

It’s an all-out WAR between two of the greatest villains in the Marvel Universe, and the only person they hate more than each other is SPIDER-MAN! Spidey’s in deep trouble with the toughest battle that he’s ever faced. Nick Spencer and Mark Bagley team up for this epic Spider-Man story guaranteed to shock readers everywhere!

What’s the scoop on SINISTER WAR? What makes it one of summer’s biggest must-reads?

The series will have dueling Sinister Six teams fighting each other with Doctor Octopus’s Sinister Six going up against the Vulture’s Savage Six. Our friends over at Marvel say the villain teams will be “in a war that puts all of New York City in the crossfire.” The new series will also see “the grand return of Doctor Octopus,” who has been dead for years but with his consciousness embedded inside a Jackal created clone.

So who exactly is going to be making a mess of New York for Spider-Man to attempt to keep up with? Just based on the first cover of SINISTER WAR alone, we’re looking at Doctor Octopus, Vulture, The Lizard, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, Hydroman, Rhino, Scorpion, and Tarantula.

The Third Eye Guide to EXTREME CARNAGE

This July EXTREME CARNAGE follows up on the events of King in Black!

Third Eye Faithful, if you’ve been itching for some more symbiote brutality since King In Black, you won’t want to miss Extreme Carnage coming this summer!

VIOLENCE RUNS IN THE FAMILY!
As the dust continues to settle after the species-redefining KING IN BLACK saga, Eddie Brock and his son, Dylan, won’t be the only ones learning to adjust to a new normal. Collectively called the Life Foundation, symbiotes SCREAM, PHAGE, RIOT, LASHER and AGONY have tried to reconcile the sometimes-noble intentions of their hosts with their often-bloodthirsty impulses.
But the Life Foundation symbiotes aren’t the only ones with a part to play in this story, and they aren’t the only symbiotes who find themselves reinvented after KING IN BLACK. They have an older sibling who may be reinvented in its own right: CARNAGE.

What’s the deal with EXTREME CARNAGE, and why exactly are we so excited about it?

How can we explain the killer greatness of Extreme Carnage? Well, we’ve got some help from writer of EXTREME CARNAGE ALPHA, and close friend of Third Eye – Phillip Kennedy Johnson.

“After King in Black, everything we thought we knew about the symbiotes will have changed. Every man, woman, and child in the Marvel Universe will finally understand the massive threat the symbiotes represent, and the symbiotes that are still among us are now in the crosshairs of some extremely angry, scared, and powerful forces. In the pages of Extreme Carnage, we’ll not only explain what Carnage is in this new, post-King in Black era, but also see a return-to-form for the deadliest symbiotes that have ever lived while putting them on a lethal new path for the future.”

Don’t want to miss any of EXTREME CARNAGE? We’ve got you covered!

Don’t miss a single issue of symbiote goodness, starting July 7th with EXTREME CARNAGE ALPHA #1. Want to get started collecting? There’s a ton of killer variant covers and a sweet bundle deal to kick off this new brutal symbiote adventure. Click here to get started with EXTREME CARNAGE ALPHA #1!
