This Week's Highlights for Wednesday 1/30/19

Published January 26th, 2019

Posted in: , , ,

2019 is set to be a HUGE year for the X-MEN, and things kick off in AGE OF X-MAN ALPHA #1 as we venture into the alternate future of the X-MEN that changes everything!

Third Eye Faithful: 2019 is gonna be a major year for the X-MEN, just trust us: big stuff is coming, and it all begins with the AGE OF X-MAN, which kicks off on Wednesday 1/30/19 in the pages of AGE OF X-MAN ALPHA!
Much like one of our favorite X-MEN events of all time, AGE OF APOCALYPSE, Age of X-Man drops us into a sprawling alternate universe, where Xavier’s son went into the past to kill Magneto, but killed Xavier instead — and changed the course of history as a whole.
Nate Grey — aka X-MAN — was one of the few characters who survived the destruction of AGE OF APOCALYPSE before it imploded in on itself, and has been a fixture in the pages of the recent UNCANNY X-MEN run (which we have all issues in stock so far — 1-10!).
While we don’t want to totally give away the incredible ending of the UNCANNY X-MEN arc X-MEN DISASSEMBLED, we will say that Nate ends up causing a similar change in the timeline as Legion did, and all hell breaks loose… leading us into the AGE OF X-MAN.
The story of AGE OF X-MAN will be told through the pages of six 5-part mini-series, which delve into an alternate timeline where the entire idea of the X-Men are removed from history.. in a sense, and the world has changed as a result.
We LOVED the alternate world of AGE OF APOCALYPSE, and we’re pretty stoked to see what changes await in the world of AGE OF X-MAN.
Wanna get the back story on AGE OF X-MAN? We’ve got issues 1-10 of UNCANNY X-MEN, which sets up this arc perfectly, in stock now!

FIGHT CLUB returns with FIGHT CLUB 3 #1 from writer CHUCK PALAHNIUK this Wednesday

The follow-up to the official FIGHT CLUB sequel from last year debuts this week!
So we’re all pretty massive fans of writer Chuck Palahniuk at Third Eye, and his work on FIGHT CLUB, obviously, is a big deal for us, ’cause c’mon: it’s one of those things that’s just monumental in terms of the impact it had on pop culture.. and it’s the very masterful storytelling of Palahniuk!
So, when he continued to explore the world of FIGHT CLUB with the sequel FIGHT CLUB 2, we were totally on board, and now, Chuck returns to that same world with FIGHT CLUB 3!
Marla Singer is about to deliver her second child, but the daddy isn’t her husband–it’s Tyler Durden, who’s very invested in his heir, and the world he’ll inherit.
Marla, her first son, and her husband–the unnamed narrator in the novel, who now goes by Balthazar–live in a rundown motel with sketchy neighbors. In the FIGHT CLUB 2 graphic novel, Tyler transformed Project Mayhem into Rize or Die–now, as a road to paradise presents itself, a new group has implemented a ruthless and deviant plan to fine-tune mankind, leading Balthazar to forge an unlikely alliance . . . with Tyler Durden.

FLASH ANNUAL #2 features an epic tie-in to TOM KING’S HEROES IN CRISIS!!

We’re loving the work Joshua Williamson is doing on the FLASH, and this weeks FLASH ANNUAL #2 delivers an absolutely epic tie-in to the currently running HEROES IN CRISIS storyline!
In FLASH ANNUAL #2, we’re brought face to face to the darkest days of BARRY ALLEN!
In Barry’s grief and guilt following Wally West’s death at Sanctuary, he refuses to divulge the heartbreaking news to the rest of the Flash family until he’s searched every corner of the globe for his former partner- including inside the Speed Force itself.
But his journey into the heart of all speedster powers inadvertently triggers the release of his long-lost ally Godspeed!
And when Godspeed immediately races off to attack Kid Flash Wallace West, Barry must hunt his former friend and check in on his fellow speedsters.
What is Godspeed planning and what does he want with the rest of the Flash Family? Can Barry protect everyone after he couldn’t save Wally?
With a heart-wrenching appearance from Wally’s former sidekick, the recently returned Bart Allen, this annual is an absolute can’t-miss for all Flash fans!

“DIE” & “WICKED AND DIVINE” writer Kieron Gillen delivers his next masterpiece with PETER CANNON THUNDERBOLT #1 — what if Superman hated the world he was destined to save?

A brilliant, dark & daring dissection of the superhero genre by one of the most talented writers in comics!
We’re huge fans of writer Kieron Gillen, and his work on favorites like the recent IMAGE hit, DIE, and the modern classic, WICKED + DIVINE, so when we saw he was delving into the world of superheroes, we knew we had to give this one some love!
His level of genius is matched only by his heroics, and in humanity’s darkest hour, he’s the hero they need the most-alas, poor humanity.
Peter Cannon-the man known as Thunderbolt-is only too happy to leave civilization to face its end.  Kieron Gillen (The Wicked + the Divine) teams up with powerhouse artist Caspar Wijngaard (Doctor Aphra) as he returns to the superhero genre with a dark, humorous and relentless love song to the genre.
Well, “Love Song” in a Leonard Cohen Love Song kind of way.
Peter Cannon, Thunderbolt: saving a world he hates.
This is a must-read, with shades of Ozymandias from WATCHMEN, as Gillen gives us a superhuman who knows he must save the world.. but, he hates everything about it.
Not since IRREDEEMABLE have we seen such a compelling and interesting take on superhero comics! Make sure you check it out this week!

WYRD #1 from DARK HORSE debuts a KILLER book that could potentially be the next GOON or HELLBOY!!

Agent Wyrd is to the modern mythology of superhero comics & science fiction what HELLBOY is to the supernatural and folklore! A must-read!
Here’s one that came out of nowhere, and when we sat down with the PDF, we found ourselves immediately impressed!
WYRD is a new DARK HORSE series that continues one of the things Dark Horse has always been best at: delivering unique, pulpy characters that don’t quite fit anywhere else, but are so darn interesting and unique — they make for some of the best comic books around.
In WYRD, there are problems, cases, too strange for US law enforcement to solve.
Pitor Wyrd is the one who solves them–for a fee, of course. An unaging, invincible detective with a penchant for the strange, Wyrd is the one the government calls when things go very badly and very strange.
This issue: Crimea. A failed attempt at recreating a certain US supersolider. A monster roaming the countryside. A trail of bodies.
Just like the HELLBOY comics take the idea of supernatural folklore, monster myths, and more to weave pulpy masterpieces — Wyrd is diving deep into the classic archetypes and history of superheroes and science fiction to unfold some darn good comic books!

HEROES IN CRISIS #5 delivers a must-read installment to Tom King’s DCU epic!!!

We’re huge fans of writer Tom King at Third Eye, and we’re pretty darn pumped about his work on HEROES IN CRISIS so far, and cannot wait to see where this all takes us next!
In issue #5, the secrets of the DC Universe are hacked! Sanctuary wasn’t supposed to keep records, but now that the A.I. is compromised, superhero secrets are leaking all over the ‘Net.
Booster and Harley set aside their differences to focus on who they believe is the real killer (assuming one of them isn’t lying, that is).
Meanwhile, Batman and the Flash continue to investigate the mysterious murderer. The answer can be found in Sanctuary…but is it safe to go digging in the crime scene?
