DOOMSDAY CLOCK #3 delivers the 3rd issue of the epic new maxi series!

The comic you’ve been waiting for… DOOMSDAY CLOCK #3! We know you’re on the edge of your seats – ’cause we are too!
DOOMSDAY CLOCK has hit 2 home-runs so far with the 1st 2 issues, and after getting a chance to dig into issue 3, we can tell ya right now: the book just gets better, and better.
The third issue of the series delivers the best issue yet, and we cannot wait to see where the story goes next after this point!
Trust us, Third Eye Faithful – you’ll never see this one coming!
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got issues 1 & 2 in stock to get you current!
What is DOOMSDAY CLOCK? OK, first off: it is indeed a sequel to WATCHMEN, which is arguably one of the greatest comic books of all-time.
It all started in the pages of the DC Universe Rebirth one-shot (pictured to the left), which not only brought back long-lost characters such as Wally West, but it also revealed that the world of WATCHMEN and the DC Universe.. were connected.
And, we were tipped off that the one and only Dr. Manhattan was responsible for the shift in the DCU that happened with NEW 52!
Now, in DOOMSDAY CLOCK, where the story of WATCHMEN ended and the story of REBIRTH begins is connected, and explored.. and it looks AWESOME!
Wanna get caught up on DOOMSDAY CLOCK? We’ve got plenty of issue 1 & 2 in stock to get you current!

Be sure to get both covers of DOOMSDAY CLOCK #3 to keep your set going!

We know a ton of you scooped all the covers of issue #1 & #2 of DOOMSDAY CLOCK (and, hey, for those who didn’t – fear not, we’ve still got ’em in stock! All 4!), so make sure you do not miss out on the killer duo of A & B covers for issue #3 this week!

SEX CRIMINALS #21 continues one of our favorite IMAGE COMICS series!

Some comics defy genre, and simply fall under the category of “just plain great comics” and SEX CRIMINALS is definitely one of those.

Start with volume 1 of SEX CRIMINALS, Third Eye Faithful, and find out for yourselves why this is one of the most charming, entertaining, hilarious, and downright heartwarming comics on the stands.
What’s it all about? Suzie and Jon have a strange gift: when they get intimate, they stop time. One day, the two of them meet, and discover they both share this strange gift.
And, then sooner or later, they decide to do what we’d all do with such a strange ability: they rob a couple banks.
A fantastic read, from the writer who brings you the stellar HAWKEYE series, and one of the most talented artists in comics today, SEX CRIMINALS is a must-have.

IDENTITY CRISIS writer Brad Meltzer’s iconic fan-favorite GREEN ARROW arc, ARCHER’S QUEST, arrives in TPB this Wednesday!

The early to mid-2000s were a real golden era for GREEN ARROW, and a lot of that had to do with the incredible work that writer BRAD MELTZER (IDENTITY CRISIS) did on the character.
