This Week's Highlights for Wednesday 1/10/18

The long-awaited prequel to the legendary OLD MAN LOGAN miniseries arrives with OLD MAN HAWKEYE #1 – SET 5 YEARS PRIOR TO THE ORIGINAL!

How did the heroes fall? What happened after? How did those villains in charge come to power? It’s all in here, and more! DO NOT MISS THIS!
We can safely say that this is probably one of the biggest comics of 2018 that we’re excited about, and we’re so pumped we’re getting it this early into the year!
The classic OLD MAN LOGAN mini-series still holds up as one of the best darn Marvel stories in the last decade or two of comics, and the world that writer MARK MILLAR created still captivates us.
Now, all those questions we had many years ago when OLD MAN LOGAN first debuted — are being answered!
In OLD MAN HAWKEYE, the super heroes have fallen.  The country has been divided into territories controlled by super villains.
Among the wastelands lives CLINT BARTON – one of the few Avengers to survive.  But it’s been 45 years, and he’s no Avenger.
Trying to eke out a living anyway he can, the former HAWKEYE is confronted with a startling discovery:  the sharpshooter is going blind.
With time running short, Clint realizes there’s one last thing he wants to see: revenge for his fallen comrades-in-arms.
Return to the Wastelands in a story set five years prior to the original OLD MAN LOGAN!

 Never read the original OLD MAN LOGAN? Check it out this week with the OLD MAN LOGAN graphic novel!

If you’ve never read the original OLD MAN LOGAN, well, I’m just about envious of you – cause getting to experience this modern classic for the 1st time is one of the best treats in comics!
Picture this: MAD MAX meets UNFORGIVEN in a dystopian Marvel future where nearly every hero is dead, and the country has been divided into territories by Marvel’s most notorious super-villains.
In the middle of it all… LOGAN tries to live a life of peace, with his claws having been sheathed for decades, and all because of a terrible secret he carries with him.
Of course, that’s until an aging Hawkeye drags him into the road trip from hell.
Folks – this book is amazing. A T-Rex wearing the venom symbiote. Nomadic biker gangs that paint skulls on their faces and call themselves Ghost Riders. And, wait until you see some of the surprise twists as to just how the future got so messed up.
Fusing the dystopian super-hero elements of the X-Men’s “Days of Future Past,” the wild and wooly futurescapes of Mad Max, and the tragic pathos of Clint Eastwood’s archetypal Western heroes, Millar’s tale finds Wolverine at a crossroads with who he really wants to be and who he really is.

One of the best comics of this generation arrives in complete hardcover with Tom King’s VISION!

Meet writer TOM KING and get it signed at Third Eye on Saturday 2/3/18!
OK, first off: everyone who told me they were gonna wait for the hardcover – I’m gonna be looking at you this week for this one! 🙂 Seriously: VISION is THE best darn thing Marvel did in the last few years, and one of the best comics of the last decade, in my opinion – so: you know you need to get this book!
What’s the scoop on it? One of the most celebrated comic books of the century, collected alongside an expansive array of special features!
Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family?
So he heads back to the beginning – to the laboratory where Ultron created him as a weapon. The place where he first rebelled against his destiny and imagined that he could be more – that he could be a man.
There, he builds them.
A wife, Virginia. Teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him.
They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition – or obsession? – the unrelenting need to be ordinary.
Behold the Visions! Theirs is a story of togetherness and tragedy – one that will set the Android Avenger on course for a devastating confrontation with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.
Collecting VISION (2015) #1-12, plus the extras from VISION DIRECTOR’S CUT #1-6.

Meet VISION Writer TOM KING on 2/3/18 at our big SWAMP THING WINTER SPECIAL Signing!

Third Eye Faithful – we’re not gonna even dance around it: Tom King is one of our absolute favorite writers in comics today, and we’ve got a strong feeling it’s going to be that way for quite some time.
So, as you can imagine, when the opportunity came up for us to be lucky enough to bring Tom in the shop to sign his incredible looking SWAMP THING WINTER SPECIAL that’s due out this Winter… well, to say we jumped at it is an understatement!
We know many of you are already very familiar with Tom’s work on BATMAN (along with the incredible BATMAN ANNUAL that came out this week!), along with his iconic VISION run, his breath-taking SHERIFF OF BABYLON, and his currently amazing MISTER MIRACLE run – but, when we say that Tom on Swamp Thing excites us the most; trust us: we’ve got good reason!
Not only did his work on BATMAN #23 (THE BRAVE AND THE MOLD) blow us away, but the character of SWAMP THING and everything that it means to comic fans is the kind of character that Tom really makes pure magic with.
