UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #1 marks the most anticipated IMAGE COMICS #1 since SAGA launched! Meet writers Scott Snyder (DARK NIGHTS METAL) and Charles Soule (Darth Vader) at Third Eye Annapolis on 11/16/19!

Holy crap: this book is going to be GOOD! In fact, it’s already been optioned for a major motion picture – that’s how much hype is swirling around what is set to be the biggest IMAGE COMICS release since Saga #1!

We’re so darn stoked on it, that we’ve got a TON of stuff going on to help launch it, including our very own Third Eye exclusive cover, AND a special launch signing with writers Scott Snyder & Charles Soule!

In this special oversized first issue, readers will journey into the near future, and an unknown nation that was once the United States of America-a land that’s become shrouded in mystery after walling itself off from the rest of the world without explanation over thirty years ago. When a team seeking a cure for a global pandemic breaches U.S. borders, they quickly find themselves in a struggle to survive this strange and deadly lost continent!

This is an all new ongoing series that takes a very near-future science fiction kind of look at the world around us, and tells one hell of a compelling story in the process.

If you’re a fan of Scott & Charles other work, then you know these guys can write, and trust us: they’re doing some of their best work yet in this new series, but on top of that, there’s some absolutely jawbreaking artwork courtesy of superstar Giuseppe Camuncoli, and it brings the book to life in a majestic way!

DAWN OF X WEEK 4: NEW MUTANTS #1 & X-FORCE #1 DELIVER A DOUBLE-SHOT OF X-CELLENCE!

We’ve been floored by how good all the new X-BOOKS are, and we’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful, like many of you: we are ALL IN on the entire line of X-BOOKS!

This week, we get TWO massive X-Releases with NEW MUTANTS #1 and X-FORCE #1 — and both are AMAZING reads!

In NEW MUTANTS, The classic New Mutants (Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik, and Cypher) get together with a few new friends (Chamber, Mondo) to seek out their missing member and share the good news… a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!

And then in X-FORCE #1, X-Force is the CIA of the mutant world-one half intelligence branch, one half special ops.

Beast, Jean Grey and Sage on one side, Wolverine, Kid Omega and Domino on the other. In a perfect world, there would be no need for an X-Force. We’re not there…yet.

What’s up with all this X-Awesomeness? 

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!

ABSOLUTE CARNAGE: WEAPON PLUS #1 one-shot delivers a vicious ABSOLUTE CARNAGE tie-in!

One of the best events Marvel has done in quite some time has gotta be ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, and we’ve been loving literally every single second of it and then some.

This week, they deliver the goods in a big way with another epic tie-in in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE WEAPON PLUS!

After one of the pilot missions of the sym-soldier program, Rex Strickland was given a highly classified mission by Nick Fury himself.

Where exactly did the ancient symbiote know as the Grendel come from?

Decades later, Carnage is on a rampage that will connect him to Knull the symbiote god and only Weapon H can stop him – by picking up where Rex left off!

BRING ON THE BAD GUYS – DC SPOTLIGHTS ITS VILLAINS THIS NOVEMBER AS YEAR OF THE VILLAIN REACHES ITS ENDPOINT — AND SOMETHING BIGGER EMERGES — COLLECT ALL THE ACETATE VILLAIN SPOTLIGHT COVERS!

BATMAN #82 leads the charge as the bad guys take the spotlight this month at Third Eye!

So, we’ve been telling ya: DC has something big brewing with their current YEAR OF THE VILLAIN story arc — and, it’s all gonna start coming together with this months DCU titles, which all share a common theme: one-shot stories tied into the current continuity and spotlighting major DC Universe villains related to the titles they’re in.

And, there’s also one more nifty unifying theme here: DC has incredible new acetate covers for each issue that literally transform the book before your eyes, as when you flip it open it reveals the actual title’s hero underneath the “takeover” cover featuring the villain.

If there’s one thing DC Comics does well: it’s shared universe storytelling, and we wish we could share what we know about where all this is going, but we’re going to tell you right now: by the end of this month – you’re going to be on your way to being all in on the DCU again, especially if the Dark Multiverse and all the awesomeness from METAL is your thing!

The first of the DC Villains titles this month is BATMAN #82, which puts the focus on Bane, as Batman and his allies wage war on the City of Bane, but an unexpected turn of events will send everyone reeling.

Will there be another death in the family, or can the Dark Knight break Bane’s iron grip over Gotham City?

While this does tie into the larger City of Bane arc – you can jump in with this issue on its own, as it’s very much a BANE-centric story, spotlighting the villain, and the greater tie all of this has to what’s coming for the DCU!

Harley Quinn #67 introduces a Harley that’s been super-charged to vicious extremes!

Another big release for DC’s WHEN THE BAD GUYS WIN month is Harley Quinn #67, which features a spin on Harley we have not yet seen: one where she’s playing for keeps.

In this one-shot, Harley has accepted the devilish offer of Lex Luthor — and now holds power like never before — and is deadly serious about using it to further her own motives.

What does Harley really want? That’s what we find out in this special one-shot issue tying into DC’s When the Bad Guys Win!

She’s bigger. She’s badder. She’s meaner. She’s Harley-er Quinn!
