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?

Be One of the First 20 in Line & Receive a FREE Gift!

We know you guys and gals love lining up early, and having fun waiting to meet your favorite creators, and we like encouraging the totally fun and totally rad community vibe it brings.
So, we’ve put together a really cool free giveaway for the first 20 of you who arrive early and line up for our signing with Justin!
 


 

GRUMBLE signing with Rafer Roberts, Justin Jordan and Kristen Gudsnuk!

Click here for event info on FACEBOOK.

What’s going on, Third Eye Faithful? We know you’re all coming down from the Holiday season, and you’re probably wondering “can the Third Eye team get anymore rad with their events?”
Oh yes. Yes we can!
We are holding our very FIRST three person signing, and it’s definitely one you’re not going to want to miss!
When Rafer came to us with his new book GRUMBLE, we just knew it was going to be something special.  We are already huge fans of his work on HARBINGER: RENEGADE and MODERN FANTASY – so we were super stoked when he agreed to come sign at the flagship store!  Not only that, but being the awesome guy that he is – he asked if he could bring some friends along to sign with him.
Who are they?  None other than Jason Jordan and Kristen Gudsnuk!
You may know of Jason from a little book series called LUTHER STRODE and if you don’t – you need to.  It’s easily one of the best books out of the last 10 years.  This isn’t Jason’s first rodeo – but we know every time he walks through our doors.
Kristen really struck gold with the awesome HENCHGIRL, and also teamed up with Rafer for MODERN FANTASY.  This will be her first Third Eye signing as well, and we are super pumped to have her in!
We’re so excited to have not one, not two, but THREE incredible talents coming to join us, and we know that you all are too! That’s why we’re asking you to join us Saturday,  1/26/19 from 11AM-1PM for a signing you won’t forget!
 

What’s the scoop on GRUMBLE?

If you know anything about us – you know we love a book that leaves us wondering “what did we just read, and when can we get more?”.  That’s exactly the kind of book that GRUMBLE is.
Enter Eddie – a low rent hustler who magically gets turned into a pug when a scheme goes wrong.
But wait – it gets better. Turns out, Eddie’s got a long lost daughter named Tala who also happens to be part demon. When she finds herself at odds with mega powerful inter-dimensional forces, she goes to father (now a pug) for help.  This goes about as well as you’d think, which is disastrous!  Eddie and Tala have to put their differences aside, or the fate of the world could be in danger.  That is, if they don’t kill each other first.
Featuring absolutely gorgeous artwork from Mike Norton (REVIVAL) and eye grabbing colors from Marissa Luise (HEX WIVES), this book is a wild ride and then some – and we are on board!  You can grab issues 1 and 2 right now at any of our stores!
 

Other Projects by RAFER ROBERTS

One thing we love is good Team Up story, and Rafer hit the money spot with HARBINGER RENEGADE.

Six months ago, a secret team of renegade whistleblowers leaked the existence of these extraordinarily dangerous individuals to a stunned world. Today, all across the country, crude, DIY psiot activation attempts have left hundreds brain damaged…or worse. The emergence of a new psiot in a community often leads to riots and mass violence. Gun sales are through the roof.

America is terrified of what could happen next.
With this revolutionary upheaval now in motion, Kris Hathaway, John “Torque” Torkelson, Faith “Zephyr” Herbert, and Peter Stanchek are about to discover their calling. Together, the HARBINGER RENEGADES are moving from town to town, building their ranks, and subverting authority one mind at a time…and setting out to prove once and for all that behind their power, there has always been a purpose.
 

Our favorite works by JUSTIN JORDAN

One of our favorite works by Justin is the series LUTHER STRODE, which is in it’s third and final act currently with the LEGACY OF 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.

Our favorite works by KRISTEN GUDSNUK

There’s a lot of people out there that could probably relate to Mary Posa – well, at least a little bit.

Mary hates her job, works long hours for little pay, her coworkers are jerks and her boss is a nightmare – but he’s a nightmare with a twist. He’s a super-villain! Mary lives in the shadow of her superhero parents and sister, in a job she can’t stand, with a super-villain boss, all the while battling her own conscience and working as a HENCHGIRL.
Clever and hilarious, HENCHGIRL takes the classic pieces of what you love about superhero comics and turns them around in a way that’s going to make you laugh and keep turning the pages!
 

If you love adventure, MODERN FANTASY is a read you’re not going to wanna miss! Sage, a young Ranger woman comes to a new city with dreams of adventure and links up with a drug-dealing reptilian wizard, and a dwarf maiden to navigate a a modern-day quest to save the world while also living an everyday life of student loan debt, and crummy day jobs.

Danger lurks for this band of roommates when one of their significant others is taken by criminals and it’s up to the modern-day adventurers to rescue him!
MODERN FANTASY seamlessly blends together a high-fantasy D&D-like adventure with the modern day world, and we can’t get enough of it!

SAT 2/9/19: Daredevil #1 Launch Signing with Chip Zdarsky (Marvel Two-In-One, Sex Criminals)

Click here for event info on FACEBOOK.

Third Eye Faithful, get ready: this February, one of our all-time favorite comic book creators is returning to Third Eye, and we could not be more stoked! We’ve been huge fans of Chip’s work for quite some time now, whether it’s his incredible Image Comics series SEX CRIMINALS, or his amazing Marvel work on series like PETER PARKER SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE, and more!
So, when we had the rare opportunity to get the one and only Mr. Zdarsky to Third Eye to sign what is looking to be his biggest release yet in DAREDEVIL #1 — we knew we had to jump at the chance!
Chip is one of those rare talents in comics that is literally the total package: his artwork is incredible, his writing is amazing, and he can effortlessly walk between the worlds of hilarious, mind-bending concepts like those seen in Sex Criminals to bigger-than-life Marvel magic that harkens back to the Marvel glory days of Simonson, Claremont, Shooter, and more.
Plus: it’s a very rare thing for Chip to make signing appearances, Third Eye Faithful, but he KNOWS that Third Eye has the most passionate, engaged, and enthusiastic comic book fans in the country — and that’s why he’s coming to kick off the Man Without Fear, his boldest work to date, with us!
And, you know what that means, right? We wanna see you lining up bright and early, and maybe even starting a Chip chant or two before doors open!
 

What’s the scoop on the new Marvel DAREDEVIL series?

Holy crap: everything we’ve heard and seen on this book tells us one thing — this is the most exciting DAREDEVIL comic to come down the pipeline in ages, and we could not be more stoked to have Chip kicking it off with us at Third Eye!
The details surrounding the new Man Without Fear series are being kept tightly guarded by Marvel, because — well, let’s be real: there’s some BIG changes coming to the world of Matt Murdock, and they’re going to impact the Marvel Universe in a pretty massive way!
What we do know is that Chip himself is one of the biggest Daredevil fans to ever swing a billy club, and the peeks we’ve had at what he’s got shaking with the new DD series have us on the edge of our seats with excitement. Seriously, he’s crafting something that’s going to go down in history as one of those kind of DAREDEVIL — you know; the legendary kind!
Featuring artwork by the one and only Marco Checchetto, aka, one of the best darn artists working in superhero comics today – the new DAREDEVIL is very much a grounded-in-reality kind of superhero comic.
We’re talking hard-hitting — this is what a vigilante in the real world would look like kinda thing, and while we haven’t had a chance to dig deeper into the series, from what we’ve heard, we get some Miller / Mazzuchelli-kinda vibes on where this one is going ala BORN AGAIN!
Best of all, Third Eye Faithful, whether you were rabidly following the amazing DD run by CHARLES SOULE (like us!), or are brand new to reading DD, or maybe returning after not visiting Hell’s Kitchen for a bit — this is a fantastic place to get into the character and follow the title!
 

Other Projects by CHIP ZDARSKY

We’re super big fans of Zdarsky’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 2/9/19!

First off, we gotta start with one that many of you may already know: SEX CRIMINALS!
Sex Criminals is by far one of our favorite ongoing IMAGE series here at Third Eye, and Chip alongside Matt Fraction, is crafting a truly unique and innovative comic that reminds us every time we read it: this is why Third Eye comics exists. Comics like this.
It’s fun, it’s unique, and it’s something that can truly only be born out of comics.
What’s SEX CRIMINALS all about? Suzie’s just a regular gal with an irregular gift: when she has sex, she stops time. One day she meets Jon, and it turns out he has the same ability — well, imagine that! And sooner or later, they get around to using their gifts to do what we’d all do: rob a couple banks.
A bawdy and brazen sex comedy that’s as heartwarming as it is hilarious. This is a fantastic book, and with the recent announcement that it’s on it’s way to TV screens soon — you HAVE to start reading it now.
We’ll have all of the single issues, as well as the graphic novels, in stock for you to catch up on and get signed by Chip at our signing!

Another series by Chip that we feel many of you may already be very familiar with is his incredible run of PETER PARKER SPIDER-MAN, which brought us some of the most touching, and on point Spidey moments we’ve seen in quite some time!

Spider-Man is back in his friendly neighborhood!
The wall-crawling wonder returns to New York City, going back to basics for big heroics in the Big Apple while taking on threats old and new!
A crime ring is tightening around Spidey, and Ironheart could help him zero in on the source – if only she’d stop beating him up.
When Spider-Man’s old pal, the Human Torch, joins in on the trail of terrifying tech, the web-head and flame-brain will be led to…Wilson Fisk!
And they’ll find out that the former Kingpin of Crime is still a force to be reckoned with! Plus: What is jolly J. Jonah Jameson up to these days? And Spider-Man’s newest ally, the Mason, falls prey to the Vulture!
 

And, don’t forget, MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE, where Chip ushered in the return of the FANTASTIC FOUR (which has quickly become one of our favorite monthly reads!) by reuniting Johnny and Ben Grimm!

With Reed and Sue Richards gone and presumed dead, Johnny Storm and Ben Grimm reunite in a bid to find their new place in the Marvel Universe.
But something is wrong with the Human Torch, and only the Thing can help him! And what monumental secret has Victor Von Doom been hiding – and how will it completely change the lives of Ben and Johnny?!
Prepare for things to go Multiversal as the Thing and the Torch explore the Fate of the Four! It’s the reunion you’ve been waiting for – well, half of it, at least – in the world’s new greatest comic magazine!

For those of you hooked on the stellar RIVERDALE TV show, we know you’re all big Jughead fans (and so are we!), so you know you gotta read the incredible JUGHEAD series that Chip did alongside SQUIRREL GIRL’s very own ERICA HENDERSON a few years back!

This book was a blast, and we loved every second of it, as Chip’s unique knack for combining humor and heartwarming storytelling brought everyone’s favorite hamburger fan to life!
Riverdale High provides a quality education and quality hot lunches, but when one of those is tampered with, Jughead Jones swears vengeance!
Well, I mean, he doesn’t “swear.” This is still Archie Comics after all.

Another big-time favorite of ours by Chip is the sci-fi epic KAPTARA, which takes MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE-style action figure adventure and blends it with humor and wit to make for one crazy awesome sci-fi read!

 Keith Kanga crash lands on KAPTARA, a world filled with danger and weird danger and dangerous weirdos!
And if he can’t survive, then Earth, the place where YOU live, is doomed!
 
 

And, folks, we cannot forget all about HOWARD THE DUCK!
Hot off the pages of the… post credits scene at the end of.. well, you know, THAT movie… HOWARD THE DUCK has returned!
Join him as he takes on the weird cases that ONLY a talking duck can crack as the Marvel Universe’s resident private investigator.
Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones guide you through Howard’s new world as he takes on the Black Cat, and some oh-so-mysterious forces from OUTER SPACE!
Seriously tho: this Howard series was freakin’ great, and if there was anybody who can make Howard hilarious and awesome it’s Chip.

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 7/14/18: FARMHAND #1 Launch Signing w/ Rob Guillory (Chew)

Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK.

Third Eye Faithful, Image Comics is on fire this year as they put out hit after hit after hit, and one of the most promising new ongoing series of 2018 has gotta be FARMHAND, from the co-creator of the legendary series that started the Image revival in 2008 – Rob Guillory of Chew!

Now, ten years after the debut of the book that literally changed creator-owned comics as we know it (and c’mon, you can say WALKING DEAD was the book that built Image, but in our minds, it was Chew that really established Image as the name they’ve come to be for top notch, high quality comic book goodness), Rob is back with a series that is set to hook you the same way Chew did and then some.
We’re so freakin’ pumped for FARMHAND that we actually set up a big launch signing with Rob for 7/14, and will be bringing him out for his first ever Third Eye signing – so not only will you get a chance to get your stack of Chew trade paperbacks signed, but even better: you’ll get to get a copy of FARMHAND #1 signed right as it’s setting new issue racks across the country on fire!

What’s the scoop on FARMHAND?

First, let us just say this: Farmhand is incredible. We’ve read a good chunk so far, and we’re telling you now: this is a book that has that “it’s gonna be special” feel. The same kind of feel we got when we read Chew #1, the same kind of feel we got when we read Black Science #1, the same kind of feel we got when we read Descender #1 — it’s just one of those books. So, you better believe, Third Eye Faithful: you need to get into this one.
The scoop on it? Meet Jedidiah Jenkins, he’s a farmer who lives in Freetown, Louisiana.
He’s your typical farmer, until he has some very frightening visions that download scientific data into his brain that’s so cutting edge – it hasn’t even been invented yet.
From there, he creates the Jedidiah Seed.
When planted and watered, he’s able to grow human organs that heal fast and can be customized in a hundred different ways.
That’s right, Third Eye Faithful: a farmer who grows human organs.
Of course, things go awry when Jedidiah becomes an overnight sensation, and shortly after, the recipients of these plant / human organs tend to not work out so swift.
When Jedidiah’s long estranged son, Ezekiel, shows up – things really kick into an interesting direction.
This book is incredible. Rob’s art is the best we’ve ever seen it, and the storytelling here is the perfect blend of weird and warm – the kind of weird and warm that really shows you just how a story about growing human organs out of a farm can tug at your heart strings.

Never read CHEW? Start now to pre-game for FARMHAND & find out why this legendary series began the Image Comics revolution in 2008!

In our personal opinion, CHEW was one of the most important comics of the 2000s.
See, before CHEW came out – Image Comics was literally just WALKING DEAD and a couple of other books, but it wasn’t the hotbed of smash hit creator-owned launches that we’ve come to know over the years.
And, Chew opened the floodgates. It literally changed the market of comics as we knew it, and you know why?
‘Cause the book is THAT damn good. Seriously: it was unique, and unlike anything else at that point in time. In fact, Third Eye had literally opened its doors just shortly after CHEW #1 came out, and we remember watching as many other great Image classics-in-the-making (books you know and love now!) followed in its wake.
In other words: Chew ranks up there with those iconic and important comic works that have changed the medium, and if you’ve never read it. Now is the time to change that.
What’s the story on it? Tony Chu is a detective with a secret. A weird secret.
Tony Chu is Cibopathic, which means he gets psychic impressions from whatever he eats.
It also means he’s a hell of a detective, as long as he doesn’t mind nibbling on the corpse of a murder victim to figure out whodunit, and why.
He’s been brought on  by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, the most powerful law enforcement agency on the planet, to investigate their strangest, sickest, and most bizarre cases.
A unique blend of heart-warming slice-of-life storytelling about the relationships people have, and a dystopian look at the world as we know it – that doesn’t seem too far removed from reality; Chew is a book that literally defies genre, and has it all.
You can pick up the first trade at Third Eye for just $9.99, and find out just why we’re so darn stoked to have Rob visiting our store to sign his new series FARMHAND!

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.

Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK.

We’re huge fans of writer STEVE ORLANDO, whether it’s his ground-breaking work on projects like VIRGIL, his incredible work on MIDNIGHTER and the latter MIDNIGHTER AND APOLLO series, or his recent hits like SUPERGIRL, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, and DC’s MILK WARS crossover.

So, when we had the chance to have Steve pay Third Eye a visit to kick off his incredible new Image Comics SKYBOUND series, CRUDE, we knew we had to do it up special!
Steve will be joining us on Wednesday 4/11/18 for a special DAY-1 Release Signing of CRUDE #1!

What’s the scoop on CRUDE?

Killers once feared Piotr Petrovich. Now, they’ve sent his son home to him – in a body bag. Haunted by his failures, Piotr journeys across Russia to learn what type of man his son really was, while hunting the bastards who killed him.
And once Piotr finds them, they will learn to fear him once more…
GLAAD Media Award-nominated writer STEVE ORLANDO (VIRGIL, Midnighter) and artist GARRY BROWN (BLACK ROAD) deliver an emotional, bone-shattering account of murder, masculinity, and mayhem.

Be sure to check out these other series by Steve Orlando!

BATMAN. BLACK CANARY. KILLER FROST. THE RAY. VIXEN. THE ATOM… and LOBO!
And, yes, it’s THE Lobo as you remember and love him most!
Pairing up with the incredible superstar team of IVAN REIS AND JOE PRADO (AQUAMAN N52), Steve Orlando brings us a whole new spin to the DCU that’s as much about delivering exciting new storylines as it is looking back to the glory days of the DCU.
We’ve got plenty of all the single issues of the series, along with the first two trade paperbacks, in stock, to hook you up at the signing!
We’ve gotta give a big shout-out to Steve Orlando’s stellar MIDNIGHTER series that ran through 2015, and delivered some of the best work on the classic AUTHORITY character since Mark Millar and Warren Ellis’s defining runs.
Spinning out of GRAYSON comes a solo series starring the man who can predict your every move…but no one will be able to predict what he’ll do next!
A theft at the God Garden has unleashed a wave of dangerous biotech weapons on the world, and Midnighter intends to put that genie back in the bottle by any means necessary.
But something else was stolen from the Garden as well…the secret history of Lucas Trent, the man Midnighter once was!
We’ve also got plenty of copies of the follow-up, MIDNIGHTER AND APOLLO, in stock as well, to get you hooked up!
It’s been a long time since we’ve been this stoked about a SUPERGIRL series. Heck, not since the PETER DAVID & GARY FRANK run from way back in the day have we been this amped about the Girl of Steel!
In SUPERGIRL REBIRTH, Supergirl turns to the shadowy organization known as the D.E.O. (Department of Extranormal Operations) to restore her lost powers once and for all! But as a fateful experiment sends Kara Zor-El rocketing toward the sun, disaster strikes at home in the form of the lost Kryptonian werewolf Lar-On!

We’ve got plenty of the back issues, along with the first trade paperback, of the new SUPERGIRL by Steve Orlando, to get you hooked up!

Saturday 3/17/18: Eternity Girl #1 Launch Signing w/ Magdalene Visaggio

Click here for the event info on FACEBOOK.

So, you probably already know it, but we’re big fans of the pop-up imprint, YOUNG ANIMAL, that the one and only Gerard Way (of UMBRELLA ACADEMY, DOOM PATROL and TRUE LIVES OF THE FABULOUS KILLJOYS fame) oversees for DC Comics.

And, when one of our favorite rising stars in comics, the wonderful Magdalene Visaggio, was announced as writing one of the wave 2 YOUNG ANIMAL titles launching this Spring, we knew we had to get her in the shop to sign copies of issue #1 and kick the book off in true Third Eye style!

What’s the scoop on ETERNITY GIRL?

Spinning out of the epic MILK WARS crossover running this Winter, ETERNITY GIRL is the tale of Caroline Sharp.
See, Caroline Sharp has been a lot of things, including both a superhero and a super-spy.
But now, with those days behind her and her powers proving unreliable, Caroline finds herself stuck in a life weighed down by her depression and an inability to change.
You see, Caroline is going to live forever, and there is no escape to be had.
The very act of living reminds her that, to the rest of existence, she is an anomaly. All of that could change, however, when her old foe, Madame Atom, comes to her with an intriguing offer.
Madame Atom can give Caroline the power to end her life; she just has to destroy the rest of the world.
Just like the other YOUNG ANIMAL books combine the best of classic, timeless superhero magic with a bold, hyper-kinetic aesthetic, ETERNITY GIRL is a fantastic read that re-invents the idea of superheroes in the 21st century!

Read more about MILK WARS, which is the PERFECT jumping on point for the YOUNG ANIMAL titles!

So, you’ve been hearing us rant and rave about how much we love the YOUNG ANIMAL books, and guess what — this January, starting in the JLA / DOOM PATROL Milk Wars one-shot on 1/31 – you can jump on fresh and try out the world of YOUNG ANIMAL!
Read all about THE MILK WARS, as well as our epic upcoming signing with GERARD WAY (DOOM PATROL, UMBRELLA ACADEMY) and STEVE ORLANDO (JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA, SUPERGIRL) here.

Other Great Projects by Magdalene

Mad science meets punk rock in QUANTUM TEENS ARE GO, and we’re loving every second of it!

But mysterious entities keep trying to stop them turning it on.
If the FANTASTIC FOUR were sktae punks, they’d be QUANTUM TEENS ARE GO!
Super fun, super fast high-octane action loaded with in-your-face sci-fi, killer robots, and more!

From the publishers who brought you WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, SPACE RIDERS and 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK, KIM AND KIM is the tale of two twentysomething besties out to make a name for themselves in the wild world of interdimensional cowboy law enforcement!

Hey Third Eye Faithful!
We’ve got a killer signing event coming up this February at Third Eye, as we host Tee Franklin, the writer of one of our most anticipated new graphic novels of Winter 2018: BINGO LOVE!
When we first caught glimpses of BINGO LOVE, we knew this was going to be a must-read from Image Comics, and when it worked out that we were able to get Tee in here to sign the book for a special early-release signing event; we jumped at the chance!
Make sure you line up early, and come out and check out this incredible new rising star in comics and her big graphic novel debut!

What’s BINGO LOVE all about?

In this incredibly illustrated, and compellingly written graphic novel, we’re taken into the middle of 1960s America, and introduced to one of the most touching stories in comics we’ve read in a long time.
When Hazel Johnson and Mari McCray met at church bingo in 1963, it was love at first sight. Forced apart by their families and society, Hazel and Mari both married young men and had families.
Decades later, now in their mid-’60s, Hazel and Mari reunite again at a church bingo hall.
Realizing their love for each other is still alive, what these grandmothers do next takes absolute strength and courage.
BINGO LOVE is a touching story of love, family, and resiliency that spans over 60 years.
