GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #1 delivers the best darn GOTG ever, and you know why? It’s written by THANOS WINS & VENOM writer Donny Cates & illustrated by THANOS WINS artist Geoff Shaw!

One of our all-time favorite writers takes the GOTG concept — and makes it freakin’ amazing once again with an all new twist! Silver Surfer! Beta Ray Bill! Nova! Gladiator ! Groot! Star-Lord! Cosmic Ghost Rider and more!
We’re gonna tell ya right now, Third Eye Faithful: the Marvel book of 2019 to snag in terms of new series has GOT TO BE Guardians of the Galaxy!
Donny has amazed us with how crazy awesome he’s been able to make VENOM in the current run with Ryan Stegman, and before that, he completely reinvigorated the Marvel cosmos with his work on THANOS WINS and then COSMIC GHOST RIDER!
Now, he’s setting his sights on his biggest story yet: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and we could not be more pumped.
With a new roster, a new direction, and Donny at the helm, Guardians is set to be one of the most explosive new books to hit Third Eye in 2019!
On top of all that, THANOS WINS artist Geoff Shaw brings his amazing art to the page on this, and combined with Donny’s storytelling: this is THE Guardians book you’ve been waiting for!
The universe is on fire. Hundreds of worlds are at war. Never has there been such hatred and division across the cosmos.
And in spite of all this, Thanos of Titan is still dead…or is he?
Now, more than ever, the cosmos need the Guardians of the Galaxy…but in the aftermath of the Infinity Wars, who is left to answer the call?
Featuring every cosmic super hero in the known universe by the THANOS WINS creative team of Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw!

BUFFY returns with the all new BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER #1 from BOOM STUDIOS!

The best BUFFY comics since the debut of BUFFY SEASON 8 are here! Jump on board, and find out why this week!
We’re pretty freakin’ pumped about the new BOOM STUDIOS Buffy series — and you know why? ‘Cause BOOM has been impressing the heck out of us with their work on recent hits like their FIREFLY launch, and their consistently impressive MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS run!
So, seeing the BOOM gang head to Sunnydale has us more than just a tad stoked, and with the first issue dropping this week, we just had to take a second to share with you why we’re so pumped!
Go back to the beginning as the critically acclaimed pop culture phenomenon Buffy The Vampire Slayer is reimagined under the guidance of series creator Joss Whedon.
This is the Buffy Summers you know, who wants what every average teenager wants: friends at her new school, decent grades, and to escape her imposed destiny as the next in a long line of vampire slayers tasked with defeating the forces of evil.
But her world looks a lot more like the one outside your window, as Eisner Award-Nominated writer Jordie Bellaire (Redlands) and Russ Manning Award-Winner Dan Mora (Saban’s Go Go Power Rangers) bring Buffy into a new era with new challenges, new friends…and a few enemies you might already recognize. But the more things change, the more they stay the same, as the Gang faces brand new Big Bads, and the threat lurking beneath the perfectly manicured exterior of Sunnydale High confirms what every teenager has always known: high school truly is hell.
Imagine the world of BUFFY… if it was reimagined in the world we live in today, and that sums up the new BUFFY very well!

COSMIC GHOST RIDER from Donny Cates arrives in trade paperback this Wednesday!

The complete origins of Frank Castle.. herald of Galactus, and Spirit of Vengeance? 
One of the coolest things to come out of THANOS WINS was the incredible COSMIC GHOST RIDER character, and we’re so pumped to see the entire mini-series featuring him hitting this week!
You knew him as the Punisher.
Then Frank Castle made a deal with the devil that made him the Ghost Rider.
A deal with Galactus made him cosmic.
And a deal with Thanos made him…dead?!
Not to worry, Castle doesn’t die easy.
He’s back – and he’s got a plan to make the universe a better place! It all starts with an idea so simple he can’t believe no one’s ever done it before.
But as with all things worth doing, it’s not going to be easy.
Castle takes on space sharks, faces down the future Guardians of the Galaxy and runs into Galactus during a bar fight! And don’t forget…baby Thanos?!
It’s Frank…er…the Punish…um…Cosmic Ghost Rider in the craziest caper you’ve ever seen! Collecting COSMIC GHOST RIDER #1-5.

The 2nd issue of SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN drops this week continuing the killer new series!

We’re loving the new SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN series, and this week, issue #2 continues to deliver more adventures of our favorite member of the Spider-Verse, Mr. Otto Octavius… your friendly neighborhood Superior Spider-Man!
What’s even cooler? He’s fighting freakin’ TERRAX! That’s right: the cosmic bad guy who’s thrown down with the FANTASTIC FOUR many years before.
This cosmic-level foe outpowers Otto Octavius, the Superior Spider-Man, by a factor of ten.
Terrax may have no problem defeating a Spider-level hero, but he’s never faced a hero who uses Otto’s SUPERIOR tactics.

But when the door between worlds opens, it’s not just any nightmares that come spilling out. They call themselves the Dark Knights. Each one is a twisted version of Batman from a world where one of his worst fears has come true.
With the invasion underway and Batman trapped in the Dark Multiverse, the Justice League must undergo an impossible quest to find the mysterious metals capable of repelling the Dark Knights and their master, the fearsome Barbatos. If they fail, everything they’ve ever known will be plunged into eternal darkness. But the true horror is…what if they’re already too late?

Marvel releases another incredible FACSIMILE edition with SILVER SURFER #14, a modern classic issue!

We’re big fans of the recent deluxe FACSIMILE editions that Marvel has been putting out in the last year, and this reproduction of the iconic SILVER SURFER #14 is a must-have!
It’s the wall-crawler versus the sky-rider in a case of accidental hostility when Spider-Man erroneously snags the Silver Surfer’s board with his webbing! Norrin Radd mistakes this as an attack, and Peter clocks the Surfer as an intergalactic threat.
Who will come out victorious?
Revisit the interstellar issue pitting the surfer against the spider, re-presented in its original form, ads and all!

Get ready for the future of X-MEN, X-FORCE and more, with EXTERMINATION, available in trade paperback this week!

There is a TON of awesome stuff coming down the pipeline for the X-MEN with the upcoming AGE OF X-MAN stuff, and the stuff going down in UNCANNY X-MEN, and a lot of it begins in the pages of the killer mini-series EXTERMINATION, which came out over the Summer last year!
Cyclops. Iceman. Angel. Beast. Marvel Girl.
The original X-Men assembled by Professor X years ago were brought to the present to find a world they barely recognized but were determined to help.
Now mutantkind’s future lies squarely in the hands of its past! With Ahab hunting the young mutants, and an unexpected yet familiar face targeting them for his own mysterious agenda, the present-day X-Men are called to arms to protect the original five.
If even one of them perishes, the future is lost. But how many – and who – will die protecting them?
To safeguard the timeline, the X-Men must risk everything to answer the biggest question of all: Can the original five’s fate be changed? Collecting EXTERMINATION #1-5, plus the EXTERMINATION stinger pages.

One of our all-time favorite comic artists has gotta be the very talented Darick Robertson, of TRANSMETROPOLITAN & THE BOYS fame, and when we saw he was going to be delivering an all new IMAGE COMICS series that reinvented the story of Oliver Twist against a dystopian post-apocalyptic backdrop.. we knew we were in for a treat!
OLIVER re-imagines Charles Dickens’ most famous orphan as a post-apocalyptic superhero fighting to liberate a war-ravaged England while searching for the truth about his own mysterious origins.
