DAWN OF X continues with its second title in the new X-BOOKS line-up with MARAUDERS #1 featuring KITTY PRYDE as the new RED QUEEN and more!

Third Eye Faithful: we’ve told you just how hyped we are about all the X-MEN books spinning out of HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X, right?

So, you better get used to this top spot being dedicated to the X-BOOKS for the next couple of weeks, cause these are some of the best things going in comics this year!

Quite possibly, one of the most exciting things we’ve seen to come down the pipeline for Marvel in the last decade, has been HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X!

These two huge series have delivered some of the most exciting, and invigorating takes on Marvel’s merry mutants that we’ve seen in decades!

And, now, as HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X near their conclusions in their respective issue #6s, the road to what lays ahead for the X-Men is clear: the DAWN OF X!

That’s right: Jonathan Hickman’s far from done with his take on the world of the X-MEN, and is starting off the first season of X-Awesomeness right with DAWN OF X this Fall!

HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X reinvented and reimagined just what the X-MEN meant to the Marvel Universe, and the DAWN OF X initiative? This is where Hickman takes the groundwork he’s built in those two mini-series, and begins taking us into the biggest golden age of X-Men comics yet!

DAWN OF X is the official banner that covers 6 all new ongoing series, two of which directly written by Hickman, and all 6 directly overseen and guided by Hickman, that take the world of the X-MEN and make it the most exciting it’s been since the days of Claremont and Lee!

For those of you not yet hip to why the HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X stuff has been so freakin’ cool — click here to get the full scoop on it with our THIRD EYE GUIDE TO HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X!

This week, the fun continues in MARAUDERS #1!

In the spirit of X-Men classics, like INFERNO, MUTANT MASSACRE, and many more, the Marauders brings a cutting edge, true to the spirit but looking ahead, approach to the X-MEN, and we’re loving every second of it!

Even in this glorious new dawn, Mutantkind faces hardships and oppression from their human counterparts. 

Led by Captain Kate Pryde and funded by Emma Frost and the Hellfire Trading Company, Marauders Storm, Pyro, Bishop and Iceman sail the seas of the world to protect those hated and feared! 

Written by SAVAGE AVENGERS superstar Gerry Duggan & Jonathan Hickman – this is a MUST-READ!

Make sure you scoop the MARAUDERS #1 RED QUEEN variant for normal cover price $4.99 this Wednesday while supplies last!

There’s a bunch of killer variant covers on MARAUDERS #1, but the RED QUEEN cover is probably our personal favorite of the bunch, and we’ll have a limited amount available at each Third Eye location for you to score at normal cover price $4.99 while supplies last!

BATMAN / SUPERMAN #3 continues the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS Saga this Wednesday!

One of the most important books to be reading in the DC Universe RIGHT NOW is BATMAN / SUPERMAN, as it’s delving deep into the DARK MULTIVERSE saga, and the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS story that wrapped up in the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS mini-series over the Summer!

In this weeks issue #3, the question is asked: Is Superman the newest member of the Batman Who Laughs’ Secret Six?

It certainly looks that way, and Batman may be powerless to stop the Man of Steel and his own demented doppelgänger.

The Dark Multiverse’s most dangerous Bruce Wayne is loose in our world, and he has our world’s greatest superhero at his side. Who do you turn to when there’s no one to trust?

Jeff Lemire’s new IMAGE series, ASCENDER, arrives in trade paperback with ASCENDER TP VOL.1! A must-read sci-fi fantasy masterpiece that fans of DESCENDER will love – but also great for fans who haven’t yet discovered DESCENDER! A must-read for only $9.99!

We’re LOVING the new series from JEFF LEMIRE, Ascender, which is in effect a sequel to his DESCENDER series – but: is set far enough out, that if you’ve never read DESCENDER, you can jump into ASCENDER fresh!

10 years after the conclusion of DESCENDER, magic has taken the place of machinery, and the rules are very different indeed.

Mila, daughter of Andy and Effie, spends her days exploring the lonely wilds of the planet Sampson and trying to stay out of the clutches of the evil disciples of the all-powerful vampire witch known only as Mother.

But, just like her parents, Mila doesn’t like to play by the rules, and when a certain robot pal of her dad’s shows up, nothing will ever be the same!

With all the scope and heart of the sci-fi classic, DESCENDER, powerhouse creative team JEFF LEMIRE and DUSTIN NGUYEN reunite to take readers on an unforgettable fantasy quest! 

Collects ASCENDER #1-5


One of comics most beloved characters, and a part of the Spider-Man mythos so crucial that she’s nearly as important as Peter Parker himself, MARY JANE is definitely one of the icons of comics.

In this weeks AMAZING MARY JANE #1, she takes the spotlight, and we’re pretty stoked about it!

One lucky lady just hit the jackpot with her own series — THE AMAZING MARY JANE #1 by writer Leah Williams and artist Carlos Gomez will bow this October, putting the spotlight on the love of Peter Parker’s life! But if Spider-history has taught us anything, such a position is rarely a good one and usually spells trouble!

In a story spinning from the pages of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #25, Mary Jane Watson just got her big shot — but at what cost? And can she really trust anyone as she pursues her Hollywood dreams?

Mary Jane is no stranger to drama, so you can be sure that THE AMAZING MARY JANE will be offering up action, glamor, grit, and even a little sass in this new ongoing series, coming in October!

Make sure you scoop the AMAZING MARY JANE #1 ARTGERM Variant for normal cover price while supplies last this Wednesday!

We’re huge fans of ARTGERM at Third Eye, and the variant he did for AMAZING MARY JANE #1 is a MUST-HAVE!

We’ll have limited quantities available at each Third Eye location this week, so scoop yours while supplies last!
