This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 12/6/17

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN artist RYAN STEGMAN returns in the new VENOM INC crossover with SPIDER-MAN: VENOM INC ALPHA #1 this Wednesday!

A War of VENOMS! Flash Thompson, Eddie Brock, Peter Parker – who will survive and what will be left of them?

We are super pumped about VENOM INC this week as it looks to be one of the best Spider-Man storylines we’ve seen in a minute.

In the tradition of past crossovers like MAXIMUM CARNAGE, VENOM INC pits the worlds of the Venom symbiote and Peter Parker against one another in a big way!

Kicking off this December, it’s safe to say we’re all getting something we’ve all been waiting a LONG time for: the answer to the question — WHO WILL BE VENOM!

Featuring Mania from the Remender / Bunn run, Lee Price from the recent VENOM run, Eddie Brock (who needs no introduction), Flash Thompson (who may be OUR favorite Venom!), and Peter Parker — this is a story that spans the legacy of VENOM in the Marvel U and delivers a killer story in the process!

What’s the scoop on it? Peter Parker, Eddie Brock and Flash Thompson have one major thing in common – the Venom symbiote changed all of their lives.

The inky black alien life-form is doubling down on our heroes – and they’re not the only ones about to be put through the ringer.

VENOM INC. kicks off here and rolls into AMAZING SPIDER-MAN & VENOM as a familiar face rises to new levels of villainy!

Get the VENOM INC ALPHA #1 Adi Granov Cover B this week at Third Eye for just $4.99 cover price!

Marvel has really pulled out all the stops for the new VENOM INC series, and one of the best darn covers we’ve seen on a Marvel book in a minute is the Cover B featuring art by superstar ADI GRANOV!

The worlds of BATMAN / TMNT collide again in the new BATMAN / TMNT II #1 this Wednesday!

DC Comics follows up their incredible BATMAN / TMNT crossover from a couple of years ago with an epic new series! 

We loved the original BATMAN / TMNT, and when we saw that the team of James Tynion IV (DETECTIVE COMICS) and Freddie Williams II (from the original BATMAN / TMNT) were reuniting, we knew we had to give this a big shout out!

When Donatello goes looking for a new mentor to help him improve his fighting skills, he opens a doorway to another reality, hoping to summon the Turtles’ one-time ally, Batman.

But instead, he gets sent to Gotham City and someone else comes through the open portal-Bane!

Suddenly, there’s a new gang boss in New York and he’s out to unite all the other bad guys under him.

Can Donnie get back in time and bring Batman with him to help his brothers before Bane causes irreparable destruction?

Get the killer KEVIN EASTMAN Cover B to BATMAN / TMNT II #1 for just $3.99 cover price!

How can you go wrong when the main man himself, Kevin Eastman, brings his trademark art style to Gotham?

You can’t! Seriously, this awesome Cover B to issue #1 of BATMAN / TMNT II is a must-have, and we know it’s gonna be a popular one! Make sure you scoop a copy this week at Third Eye!

BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT #3 delivers another stunning issue of this incredible Elseworlds tale where THE JOKER becomes the hero of Gotham!

Gorgeous art, and sharp storytelling is making WHITE KNIGHT an instant classic!

We’re loving what TOKYO GHOST artist and co-creator SEAN MURPHY is doing with BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT, and this weeks issue #3 is another grand slam homerun!

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?

In this weeks issue #3, tragedy strikes, and the Bat-family face the fight of their lives against an army of super-villains and waning public support.

A new discovery reinforces Jack’s plot to jeopardize the Dark Knight’s standing in Gotham City, and Harley’s obsession with The Joker reaches a new height-and threatens to change the game for good!

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got plenty of issues 1 & 2 in stock now to get you current!

GOD COUNTRY & REDNECK writer DONNY CATES brings his chilling horror series BABYTEETH to trade paperback with BABYTEETH VOLUME 1 this Wednesday!

A modern day spin on ROSEMARY’S BABY and THE OMEN? You need this!

We’re all big horror fans at Third Eye, and when we saw that one of our favorite writers, Donny Cates, was bringing his incredible new horror series about demon babies to graphic novel – we knew we had to give you the heads up, Third Eye Faithful!

In BABYTEETH, Sadie Ritter is sixteen years old, nine months pregnant, and scared out of her sweet nerdy mind. Having a baby that young is tough, but with the support of her loving family behind her, everything should be okay.

OH YEAH, and also her baby is the antichrist and it’s going to break open the barriers between the earthly and demonic planes and unleash eternal suffering to all of humankind. Other than that, though…should be fine.

Check it out this week, and find out why it was one of our favorite new reads of 2017!

WITCHBLADE begins anew with the all new WITCHBLADE #1 featuring a brand new wielder of the Witchblade!

Combining the eerie awesomeness of the ’90s classic with a sharp, modern day sensibility – the new WITCHBLADE rules!

We really really liked the new WITCHBLADE! It was just the right amount of paying tribute to the original series that we all know and love so well and combining it with a sharp new twist that makes for a great read.

Gunned down and left for dead on a New York rooftop, Alex Underwood’s life should have ended there-but instead, at the moment of death, she became host to the Witchblade, a mystical artifact that grants the woman wielding it extraordinary powers.

But the power comes with a heavy cost, and Alex finds herself thrust into the center of an unseen battle raging on the snowy streets of NYC.

Demons are real and walking among humans, and every one of them is intent on taking out the Witchblade’s newest host before she becomes too strong to kill.

But the artifact chose Alex for a reason, and she’s not going down without a fight.

Meet BATMAN Writer TOM KING on 2/3/18 at our big SWAMP THING WINTER SPECIAL Signing!

Third Eye Faithful – we’re not gonna even dance around it: Tom King is one of our absolute favorite writers in comics today, and we’ve got a strong feeling it’s going to be that way for quite some time.

So, as you can imagine, when the opportunity came up for us to be lucky enough to bring Tom in the shop to sign his incredible looking SWAMP THING WINTER SPECIAL that’s due out this Winter… well, to say we jumped at it is an understatement!

We know many of you are already very familiar with Tom’s work on BATMAN (along with the incredible BATMAN ANNUAL that came out this week!), along with his iconic VISION run, his breath-taking SHERIFF OF BABYLON, and his currently amazing MISTER MIRACLE run – but, when we say that Tom on Swamp Thing excites us the most; trust us: we’ve got good reason!

Not only did his work on BATMAN #23 (THE BRAVE AND THE MOLD) blow us away, but the character of SWAMP THING and everything that it means to comic fans is the kind of character that Tom really makes pure magic with.

BLACK BOLT VOL.1 HARD TIME collects the critically acclaimed sleeper hit of the year by Saladin Ahmed & Christian Ward! 

One of Marvel’s best books you’re not reading – trust us: we turned you onto VISION too, remember? 🙂 Seriously tho: SNAG THIS TRADE & GIVE BLACK BOLT A SHOT! Great stuff!

One of the biggest surprises for us this year, and we gotta tell ya – it kinda crept up out of nowhere, because we’ve been kinda done with the INHUMANS for a bit — is the new BLACK BOLT series.

We already knew the art would be incredible because c’mon: Christian Ward (INFINITE VACATION, ODY-C) is incredible, but combined with the amazing storytelling of Saladin Ahmed, and that means we’ve got one of the most exciting takes on Black Bolt we’ve seen since the now-classic Paul Jenkins & Jae Lee INHUMANS.

In BLACK BOLT VOL.1 HARD TIME, the king of the Inhumans has been imprisoned! But where? Why has he been jailed? And who could be powerful enough to hold the uncanny Black Bolt? The answers will shock you – and Blackagar Boltagon as well!

For if he is to learn the truth, he must first win a fight to the death against a fellow inmate: the Absorbing Man! As a prison revolt begins, Death’s Head enters the fray – but is he there to help, or to hunt?

And who – or what – is the warden of this strange place? Whatever it is, the Jailer knows only penance and fear. And soon, so will the Silent King!

Award-winning sci-fi writer Saladin Ahmed crafts a story fit for the mind-bending art of Christian Ward!
