Spinning out of METAL.. the NIGHTMARE BATMEN one-shots continue with BATMAN: THE DEVASTATOR #1

Get a FREE THE DEVASTATOR Pin when you purchase BATMAN: THE DEVASTATOR #1 (while supplies last!)

We’re so pumped for DARK NIGHTS METAL, and one of the coolest aspects of it has gotta be the NIGHTMARE BATMEN!

These essentially are Dark Multiverse hybrids of BATMAN.. and then corrupted versions of some very familiar DCU heroes thrown in for good measure.

We’re talking THE RED DEATH, who you may know as a certain SCARLET SPEEDSTER, we’re talking THE DROWNED, who you may know as the Queen of the Seas, and of course, there’s the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS — we’ll let you figure that one out on your own. 🙂

When METAL begins – there’s a set of heavy-hitting emissaries of doom, each one of them representing Batman’s worst fears about himself brought into existence.

Every one of them represents a time in his career that could have gone wrong, or put him on a path to more sinister inclinations.

See, this is what’s cool about METAL: the Dark Multiverse is much like the MULTIVERSE in that it is a thousand different possible outcomes — but with the DARK MULTIVERSE, they’re all terrifying.

The Nightmare BATMEN are a perfect example.

What if Bruce Wayne tried to harness the Speed Force, and it drove him mad?

What if he went too far trying to experiment with Doomsday’s DNA after Superman’s death?

And, you know who’s leading the Nightmare Batmen, right?

The BATMAN WHO LAUGHS!

This week, we’re introduced to the DEVASTATOR. An alternate take on Bruce where he experimented with DOOMSDAY’s DNA in the wake of Superman’s death.

Get a FREE BATMAN THE DEVASTATOR badge when you purchase BATMAN: THE DEVASTATOR #1 – while supplies last!

Okay, so with something as cool as this – DC Comics really pulled out all the stops to deliver a very cool and fun bonus item to go along with the NIGHTMARE BATMEN one-shots!

They’ve made special promo pins for THE RED DEATH, THE MURDER MACHINE, THE DAWNBREAKER, THE DROWNED, THE MERCILESS, and the DEVASTATOR!

When you pick up your copy of the one-shot for say, the THE DROWNED, you’ll get your THE DEVASTATOR badge!

The biggest BATMAN story we’ve seen in ages continues with Sean Murphy’s epic BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT #2 this Wednesday!

As DC Comics returns to ELSEWORLDS, BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT shows us just how freakin’ great DC’s self-contained mini-series can be! A world where the Joker is cured, and is determined to save Gotham from Batman? So cool!

BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT blew us away last month, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot wait for issue #2!

Public support for Batman dwindles and Gotham City’s 99 percent rally around ex-Joker Jack Napier’s crusade to expose decades of corruption within the GCPD. A proposition inspires new revelations about Harley and The Joker’s past; and as Jack transforms into a hero of the middle class and takes extreme measures to mobilize a revolutionary army of super-villains, Bruce struggles to stay focused on engineering a technological breakthrough to save Alfred.

What’s the scoop on WHITE KNIGHT? Featuring the incredible artwork of the one and only SEAN MURPHY, who wowed many of you with Image’s TOKYO GHOST, along with his work on series like THE WAKE and more, BATMAN: WHITE KNIGHT is one of the most fascinating looks at the DARK KNIGHT we’ve seen yet!

In a world where Batman has gone too far, The Joker must save Gotham City.

He’s been called a maniac, a killer and the “Clown Prince of Crime” but “white knight”? Never. Until now…

Set in a world where the Joker is cured of his insanity and homicidal tendencies, The Joker, now known as “Jack,” sets about trying to right his wrongs.

First he plans to reconcile with Harley Quinn, and then he’ll try to save the city from the one person who he thinks is truly Gotham City’s greatest villain: Batman!

Superstar writer and artist Sean Murphy  presents a seven-issue miniseries of a twisted Gotham City with a massive cast of heroes and villains that, at its heart, is a tragic story of a hero and a villain: Batman and The Joker. But which is the hero-and which the villain?

BATMAN: THE DARK PRINCE CHARMING VOL.1 delivers a stunning European comics take on the DARK KNIGHT!

Gorgeous artwork, and stunning storytelling as acclaimed European comics master enrico Marini (EAGLES OF ROME, LE SCORPION) makes his American comics debut in this all new BATMAN story!

We’re huge fans of a lot of the incredible comics we see coming over places like Italy, Spain, and France, and when we saw that the legendary ENRICO MARINI was going to be doing a BATMAN graphic novel — we knew we had to shout it out!

In this stunning new work, the question is asked: what secret connection do both Batman and The Joker share with a strange and mysterious young girl?

After she’s kidnapped by The Joker, Batman must plunge deep into the underworld of Gotham City and race against time to find out where she’s being held. The stakes are high, and for Batman, it’s personal!

DEVILMAN: GRIMOIRE GN VOL.1 brings the return of the iconic MANGA character in bloody, over-the-top fashion!

One of our all-time favorites, DEVILMAN returns!

We’ve always had a huge soft spot for GO NAGAI’s DEVILMAN and when we saw that there was a brand new series that’s perfect for folks who’ve never read DEVILMAN coming out — we knew we had to give you guys the shout out on it!

In this modern retelling of the horror manga epic spanning generations of fans!

When demons begin taking over the bodies of humans, only the strongest survive.

When a practicing young witch named Miki Makimura asks her friend Akira Fudo for help with a ritual, the spell is interrupted and Akira is left on the brink of death. His body is overtaken by a powerful being named Amon.

Now torn between his humanity and the demon within him, Akira uses his abilities to fight in the war between demons and humans for the future of the world itself!

The long out of print THOR BY KIERON GILLEN TPB is now back in stock at Third Eye! A must-read take on THOR by the writer of DARTH VADER & WICKED AND DIVINE!

Holy crap: did KIERON GILLEN absolutely rule on THOR or what? Seriously, one of the most underrated, and most impressive runs on the character we’ve ever seen, and when we had the opportunity to get a bunch of copies of this run back in stock – we jumped at it!

In the THOR BY KIERON GILLEN TP, Loki has woven his intricate scheming throughout every level of Thor’s existence. From Asgard to Oklahoma, from Latveria to Hell, the Trickster has involved the likes of Dr. Doom, Hela, Norman Osborn and even Mephisto to meet his sinister goals.

But when his plans spiral out of control – culminating in the Siege of Asgard and the return of an ancient evil so terrible it means certain disaster to even speak its name – it’s up to Thor and his fellow Asgardians to save the day.

But who, if anyone, will save Loki? And what soul-saving part does Dani Moonstar of the New Mutants have to play?

MARVEL LEGACY: SPIDER-MAN #234 begins the LEGACY era for Miles Morales as the SINISTER SIX returns!

The iconic SPIDER-MAN rogues return in a new incarnation with this perfect jumping on point for the Miles Morales Spidey series!

We’ve been big fans of the Miles Morales SPIDER-MAN series since day one, and are pretty pumped to not only see the character remaining a major part of the MARVEL U as Legacy begins, but also getting the spotlight in a big way as the new SINISTER SIX is introduced!

In SPIDER-MAN #234, Miles’ world has been shaken a lot lately, but nothing will compare to what the mysterious Iron-Spider and his brand new SINISTER SIX will do.

Sandman, Hobgoblin, The Spot, Electro and Bombshell (?!) join this mystery villain to make Miles’ life a living hell.

Jump on board with this issue, and find out why this has been one of our favorites for a while!

LEGACY is such a big thing that Marvel has put together a very special set of covers featuring lenticular transformations from the classic cover that inspired it to the modern day homage cover.

These are gonna be some tricky ones to find. With limited print runs, and very limited availability, these are set to be some of the most sought after exclusive variants that Marvel has done yet.

DARK NIGHTS METAL: JUSTICE LEAGUE #32 continues the BATS OUT OF HELL Crossover that ties into METAL!

Taking place after the events of METAL #3, the JUSTICE LEAGUE must find the artifacts that can fight against the forces of the DARK MULTIVERSE!

Third Eye Faithful, we think it’s safe to say that METAL has been an absolute success and a half in terms of delivering what we all really want out of comics: GREAT storytelling that has you eagerly awaiting what’s to come next!

And, now, following hot on the heels of the epic GOTHAM RESISTANCE crossover, we’ve got the BATS OUT OF HELL crossover that ties into METAL, as the JUSTICE LEAGUE must scatter across the globe to discover the ancient artifacts that can help fend off the forces of the DARK MULTIVERSE!

All the brilliance of Batman, but none of the morals.

MARVEL LEGACY: AVENGERS #673 delivers WORLDS COLLIDE Chapter 3!

The return of the HIGH EVOLUTIONARY is making AVENGERS a must-read! 

We’re huge fans of what Marvel Legacy has brought to the AVENGERS title, as the characters are getting back to their roots, and the road to something HUGE is being paved with the current crossover between AVENGERS and CHAMPIONS.

In this week’s #673, we’re given the 3rd chapter of the WORLDS COLLIDE Crossover (which continues from CHAMPIONS #13 Chapter 2), and it’s AWESOME!

DEADMAN gets his own mini-series courtesy of the legendary NEAL ADAMS!

We’ve always been big fans of the character DEADMAN, and when we saw that he’d be getting some spotlight courtesy of BATMAN legend NEAL ADAMS, we knew we had to show some love!

When we last left Deadman, the true story had barely begun!

Deadman’s death was unsolved, and his fate was intertwined with that of his parents and siblings. Even the Dark Night Detective couldn’t solve the mysteries of Boston Brand’s fantastic secrets!

Now, Batman is back, confronting Deadman about who was really behind his death.

Was Boston Brand’s assassination a test for the League of Assassins?

Why does Batman think Ra’s al Ghul was involved? And why does Deadman need the help of Zatanna, Phantom Stranger, Dr. Fate and the Spectre to defend Nanda Parbat?

This is a great reintroduction to the character, AND… it has a special GLOW-IN-THE-DARK cover that’s just too freakin’ cool!

MARVEL LEGACY: IRON FIST #74 delivers the second part of the LEGACY direction for Iron Fist with SABRETOOTH ROUND TWO: PART 2!

One of our favorites of the new LEGACY launch titles was most definitely IRON FIST #73, which kicked off the LEGACY era for Danny Rand, and brought long-time Iron Fist foe SABRETOOTH back into the mix!

In this weeks issue #74, SABRETOOTH’S grudging alliance with IRON FIST takes the duo on a butt-kicking spree as they try to locate the Book of the Iron Fist and its mysterious thief.

Meanwhile, CHOSHIN’s plan moves into phase 2… but before the issue’s over…a wicked double-cross will change what you thought you knew!

This book captures the raw energy and fun of one of our favorite IRON FIST runs, the IMMORTAL IRON FIST, and blends it with classic ’70s cult cinema to make for one heck of an awesome read.

Image delivers a stunning sci-fi read with NO.1 WITH A BULLET #1! 

A dark, and frightening take on social media and where it could be taking us! A must for fans of PRIVATE EYE, TRANSMETROPOLITAN and SNOTGIRL!

We REALLY dug issue 1 of this killer new IMAGE series.

Picking up the torch of frightening yet scary relevant futurism sci-fi that TRANSMETROPOLITAN first brought, NO.1 WITH A BULLET is all about Nash Huang, and the scary world she lives in.

Her social media, strong. Her variety show segments, a hit. Nash Huang is at the top of her game. But when the iRis Shutter contact lens hits the market, Nash’s life is personally invaded.

The latest leap forward in “technological progress,” these contacts not only play video or augment reality…but also record footage. Fighting to keep her life together after a leaked sex tape goes viral, a clingy super-fan is the last thing on Nash’s mind…but that’s exactly when the bodies pile up and the terror begins.
