SHAZAM #1 delivers the 1st issue in the highly anticipated SHAZAM ongoing series from GEOFF JOHNS (DOOMSDAY CLOCK, BLACKEST NIGHT, AND MORE!)

The architect of the DC Universe as we know it debuts his next big series with SHAZAM #1!
We gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful, writer GEOFF JOHNS is one of our all-time favorites at Third Eye, and we’re so darn stoked to see him putting out more of what he does best: sweet, sweet comic storytelling!
Following hot on the heels of his currently running mega-hit, DOOMSDAY CLOCK, Geoff is launching his next ongoing series this week with the very talented DAVE EAGLESHAM (who many of you may remember from Geoff’s iconic JSA run back in the day) in SHAZAM #1!
Launching the 1st monthly ongoing SHAZAM series set in the DC Universe in nearly 2 decades — this one is going to be extra special, and we’re telling you now: do not sleep on it!
Teenager turned super-hero Billy Batson struggles to balance school and superheroics! (Guess which one is more fun?)
But when Shazam unlocks a shocking secret deep within the Rock of Eternity, it challenges everything he knows about the worlds of magic and his family’s future as its champions!
Also, witness the bizarre team-up of Dr. Sivana and Mr. Mind as they set off to build a society all their own! Don’t miss the start of an epic run in the making as “Shazam and the Seven Realms” begins!
Not only does this look to be delivering an incredible spin on the iconic DCU character (who’s going to be getting his own flick soon!), but it’s also the 1st in a series of new titles that Geoff Johns will be rolling out on the heels of DOOMSDAY CLOCK, and laying the ground work for a new era in the DC Universe as the bigger story of REBIRTH comes to its head!

SHAZAM #1 also features a gorgeous COVER B variant by DOOMSDAY CLOCK artist GARY FRANK for just $4.99 cover price!

DEFENDERS: BEST DEFENSE Begins with Chapters 1 & 2 in DEFENDERS: IMMORTAL HULK and DEFENDERS: NAMOR #1!!! Get on board with this reunion of the DEFENDERS from IMMORTAL HULK writer AL EWING!

We’re huge, huge fans of what writer AL EWING is doing with the IMMORTAL HULK, and are so excited to see him masterminding the reunion of the original DEFENDERS!
We’ve been loving the heck out of what Marvel has been doing with recent titles like IMMORTAL HULK, DOCTOR STRANGE, and more — and now, some of the biggest writers working in the Marvel Universe today are uniting to release FIVE big one-shots reuniting the original DEFENDERS!
That’s right, Third Eye Faithful: DOCTOR STRANGE, IMMORTAL HULK, NAMOR THE SUB-MARINER, THE SILVER SURFER — they’re all coming back, and with a vengeance!
We were lucky enough to sneak peek many of these one-shots, and we’re telling you right now: these are going to be books you GOTTA have, and will be the sleeper hits of the Winter, trust us!
It all starts in the DEFENDERS: IMMORTAL HULK one-shot, where we learn of the stunning discovery that drives this storyline: Stephen Strange is DEAD.
That’s right, the Sorcerer Supreme is a charred skeleton left in an abandoned barn on the edge of a deserted town.
And, we all know how the Hulk feels about deserted towns, right?
Bruce Banner wants to know why, and he’s not planning on stopping until he has the truth in his hands… with or without the IMMORTAL HULK!
And, then in DEFENDERS: NAMOR, following up on the fact that the Monarch of the Oceans has declared war once more on the surface world in the pages of AVENGERS by JASON AARON (Which rules! And, yes, we do have all those issues in stock)
And if this is a war that Namor means to win, he is going to need allies to stand beside him!
The Sub-Mariner’s quest for a lost tribe of sea-dwellers carries him further than he ever thought possible-and to a reckoning both strange and wonderful!
And hey, what’s up with that weird apparition in the sheet, anyway?
Find out how the mystery of Steven Strange’s death ties into everyone’s favorite wing-footed anti-hero!

DIE #1 from KIERON GILLEN & STEPHANIE HANS delivers one of the most promising new IMAGE ongoing series launches since SAGA!!

WICKED + DIVINE writer KIERON GILLEN delivers a blend of horror storytelling and gamer culture in this GOTH JUMANJI-style story!
You know us, Third Eye Faithful, we’ve got our toes dipped in all sorts of nerdy obsessions, and one of those is tabletop gaming.
So, when we saw one of our favorite comic writers, Kieron Gillen, was bringing his unique talents to a new ongoing IMAGE series with art by the very talented STEPHANIE HANS… and that it was based around the concept of a group of forty-something adults dealing with horrors they accidentally brought into the real world during their teenage role-playing games…. well, we were sold.
And, hot damn, this book is good!
DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning unearthly horror they barely survived as teenage role-players.
If Kieron’s in a rush, he describes it as “Goth Jumanji.”
That only captures a sliver of what you’ll find in oversized debut issue-where fantasy gets all too real.

Get the totally rad DIE #1 Cover B variant by WICKED + DIVINE artist JAMIE MCKELVIE for just $3.99!

In addition to that gorgeous cover A, Kieron’s WICKED + DIVINE collaborator, Jamie McKelvie, has an amazing Cover B variant for DIE #1 that drops this week as well!
Make sure you scoop a copy!

One day, Erik Killmonger will rise up and attempt to steal the throne of Wakanda.
The throne he believes he is owed.
But long before he became “Killmonger,” there was a boy known as N’Jadaka.

A boy who knew the Black Panther only as a fairy tale, a whisper from strangers.

When we got our first peek at the new MARTIAN MANHUNTER series, we knew right away this was going to be a special one, and Third Eye Faithful: we were right!
No matter what you know about J’onn J’onnz, you’re not prepared for this!
The acclaimed team of writer Steve Orlando and artist Riley Rossmo (BATMAN/ THE SHADOW, BATMAN: NIGHT OF THE MONSTER MEN) reteam for a reinvention of the Manhunter from Mars in this twisted, unexpected series.
Back on Mars, J’onn was about as corrupt as a law officer can be, and when a reckoning comes for his entire society, he’ll get a second chance he doesn’t want or deserve!
One shocking murder, and an unexpected fragment of the Mars he lost, will change his life-and the course of the Earth-forever!
Great storytelling, gorgeous artwork — this is going to be one of those books very similar to last year’s MISTER MIRACLE, where the buzz just keeps growing and growing based on how unique, and how quality this one is!
