This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 1/18/17

JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #5 delivers the penultimate chapter of the arc as the story that began in the DC Universe Rebirth one-shot begins to unfold!

Fans of FLASHPOINT, BLACKEST NIGHT & more will love this new mini-series! Meet series writer JOSHUA WILLIAMSON at Third Eye on Saturday 1/28/17

This mini-series really has us hooked, and we’re loving how it harkens back to bigger-than-life DC events like BLACKEST NIGHT, FLASHPOINT, and more.

In issue #4, you better believe that the Eclipso-versions of the Justice League you see on the cover are totally what you’re gonna be getting as the Suicide Squad is the only thing that stands in Max Lord’s path of total world domination!

Wanna catch up? We’ve got issues 1-4 in stock now to get you current!

What’s the real scoop here? The main villain behind iconic DCU storylines like OMAC PROJECT, INFINITE CRISIS, and JUSTICE LEAGUE GENERATION LOST.. MAXWELL LORD.. once again takes center-stage, and with him, he’s brought his own ‘Suicide Squad’ of some of the most blood-thirsty DC Super-Villains you can imagine.

Now, the JUSTICE LEAGUE and Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad are on a collision course… and the main plot of DC Rebirth (for those of you who read the one-shot, you know EXACTLY what we’re referring to) is going to be explored in more detail!

What’s the scoop on JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD? The first major event storyline of DC’s Rebirth era begins with a day Amanda Waller always knew would come: the Justice League discovers the existence of the Suicide Squad!

This government-sponsored black-ops team of super-villains with bombs implanted in their brains is obviously a deal-breaker for Earth’s paragons of truth and justice!

But you can bet that the Wall and her Task Force X won’t go down without the fight to end all fights as this weekly series gets underway!

And, of course, in true DC Comics fashion — there’s some bigger-than-life multiversal stuff looking to be shaping up here, and we cannot wait to see what’s cooking!

If you remember back before the NEW 52 DCU — DC was always at the top of their game when doing big universe-impacting storylines like IDENTITY CRISIS, INFINITE CRISIS, BLACKEST NIGHT and FLASHPOINT, and JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD is their first return to these kind of tales!

On top of all that, we’ll have one of comics fastest rising superstars, JOSHUA WILLIAMSON, the writer of JL VS. SUICIDE SQUAD in-store to sign your copies of the book on 1/28/17!

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got the prelude issue of SUICIDE SQUAD (#8), and the MAX LORD Rebirth tie-in JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 in stock along with JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD #1-3 to get you on board!

Get your JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD issues signed by writer Joshua Williamson on 1/28/17

Third Eye Faithful, we’re so pumped about JL VS. SUICIDE SQUAD that we’ve put together a huge signing with series writer, JOSHUA WILLIAMSON!

Josh is one of the fastest rising superstars in comics today, with hit series like NAILBITER, BIRTHRIGHT, and of course, the DC REBIRTH FLASH series, and we’re super stoked to have him in-store to sign ALL 6 issues of the JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD mini-series for you!

Image’s CURSE WORDS #1 debuts this Wednesday and it’s amazing!

If Harry Potter was an awful person, he’d grow up to be the star of Curse Words!

Third Eye Faithful – meet your next major favorite series!

CURSE WORDS is an incredible read, and it does that killer job that most Image books do of blending a few unique genres into one incredible read.

In this brand new ongoing series from Charles Soule (Inhumans vs. X-Men, Letter 44, Poe Dameron) and Ryan Browne (God Hates Astronauts), we’re introduced to a cast of characters that may be the most endearing since that first issue of SAGA!

A wizard has appeared in New York City, and he’s casting wonderful spells, getting famous, getting rich — and it’s all good, right?

Well, not quite.

See, that wizard that everyone loves and worships? He’s actually not the altruistic good guy with a cool haircut that he seems.

He’s actually a pretty evil wizard, and some pretty evil things are on the way.

Curse Words is a gonzo modern fantasy, full of darkness, light, and.. magic!

If Harry Potter went horribly wrong, and grew up to fool the world that he didn’t — he’d be Curse Words’s lead, Wizord!

Get the Curse Words #1 Exclusive covers while supplies last this week!

With a big launch like CURSE WORDS, Charles and Ryan worked with Image to help put together some incredible alternate covers to help celebrate the release, and we love ’em!

Obviously, the Cover B Skottie Young cover pictured to the left is totally amazing, and you know you gotta have that, but in addition to that, we’ll also have the Curse Words #1 1:25 Margaret variant (featuring a surfing Koala!), and the Curse Words #1 1:50 Wizard Cat variant — which you gotta see to believe! You can check ’em out at our Cover Gallery below!

We’re super stoked about the upcoming JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA Rebirth series, and we love the team line-up!

So, when we saw that all through January, DC would be putting out special one-shot issues spotlighting each member of the roster and telling their REBIRTH story, we knew we had to give it a shout out!


One of our favorites from back in the day, we’re pretty darn pumped to see THE RAY getting some spotlight again!

In JLA REBIRTH: THE RAY #1, we’re reintroduced to the character, and we get the full scoop on what he’s all about!

Locked indoors, raised in the dark and told his medical condition could be fatal to himself and anyone he meets, Ray Terrill is dangerous. A freak. Broken.

Or is he…?

Witness the amazing power of realizing your true self and stepping into the light in this moving rebirth of a long-lost hero for a new generation.

KILL OR BE KILLED VOL.1 arrives this week collecting the first 4 issues of the brutal new IMAGE vigilante series for  only $9.99!

The hard-hitting superstar creative team of BRUBAKER & PHILLIPS (FADE OUT, FATALE, CRIMINAL) deliver an incredible new take on the classic masked vigilante story!

One of the best new Image books we’ve seen in a bit is the totally stellar new KILL OR BE KILLED, which puts a very hard-hitting new spin on the classic genre of dude in a mask laying down some vigilante justice.

In KILL OR BE KILLED, we’re told the darkly twisted story of a young man forced to kill bad people, and how he struggles to keep his secret as it slowly begins to ruin his life and the lives of his friends and loved ones.

Both a thriller and a deconstruction of vigilantism, KILL OR BE KILLED is unlike anything this award-winning team has done before.

Trust us: we don’t want to spoil the surprise of the hook, but it’s a very interesting twist on things like the Punisher arch-type, and we think you’ll fall in love with this one.

Snag a copy this week for just $9.99!

U.S.AVENGERS #2 continues the surprise Marvel hit of 2017!

Don’t sleep on this super fun new Marvel series which conjures up memories of EXILES and NEXTWAVE! Killer read!

We were floored with how much we enjoyed the first issue of U.S AVENGERS, and a big part of it had to do with the great blending of art by Medina and a super unique, super interesting story from Ewing.

In U.SAVENGERS #2, we’re taken straight into the $kullocracy — as the Golden Skull launches his takeover bid — and it’s so crazy that it may just work.

How do the U.S.AVENGERS respond to the looming threat? Well, with tuxedos. Really well-fitted tuxedso.

Seriously though: this is a blast, with a killer team line-up, a sense of fun, and a big storyline that looks to be dropping major hints of what’s to come in the Marvel Universe!
