This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 2/13/19

The best comic of 2018 is set to be the best graphic novel of 2019 as Tom King’s MISTER MIRACLE arrives in its entirety this Wednesday!

PLUS: meet writer Tom King at Third Eye Annapolis 7PM-9PM this Wednesday!

We’re so stoked that so many of you who’ve been waiting for the trade paperback release of the masterful MISTER MIRACLE are gonna be able to dig into it this Wednesday — that we can barely contain ourselves.

Seriously: this is arguably the best darn comic released in 2018, and with the graphic novel release this week, could be the best graphic novel released in 2019.

Tom King and Mitch Gerads craft a story that combines a charming, very human element with the epic scale and scope of the entirety of the Fourth World, New Genesis, and Apokolips, and everything in between.

From capturing the core of each of the New Gods, while also introducing new layers to each of them — he manages to do something that many have tried in the last few years: he’s made the amazing world of Jack Kirby’s FOURTH WORLD accessible, awesome, and downright fun to read for the first time since the original Kirby stuff of yesteryear.

What’s the scoop on this one? Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former Female Fury known as Big Barda.

Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques.

He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.

You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick-except one.

He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.

Meet MISTER MIRACLE writer Tom King this Wednesday for a special release day signing at THIRD EYE ANNAPOLIS 7PM-9PM!

Don’t forget, Third Eye Faithful, the one and only Tom King will be kicking off the release of MISTER MIRACLE with us at Third Eye Annapolis THIS WEDNESDAY 7PM-9PM! Make sure you get here early, and line up to get your copy of MISTER MIRACLE signed!

AVENGERS: NO ROAD HOME #1 kicks off an AVENGERS epic that follows in the footsteps of last year’s NO SURRENDER — and leads the road to WAR OF THE REALMS!

You wanna see CONAN vs. the AVENGERS? You wanna see the awesomeness of the current AVENGERS run continue? Get all that and more as NO ROAD HOME kicks off!

We’re super pumped about what’s to come with AVENGERS NO ROAD HOME, and as huge fans of last year’s NO SURRENDER crossover, we know this one is gonna be a MUST-READ.

This mini-series will be taking us into the upcoming WAR OF THE REALMS event, and Third Eye Faithful, we’re telling you: everything about MARVEL, WAR OF THE REALMS, and more is gonna be off-the-chain in 2019!

In AVENGERS NO ROAD HOME, Night has fallen across the universe.

Now seven Avengers – and one new addition – journey forth to bring back the light.

But when the threat they face has destroyed even the gods…will anyone make it home?

Just like NO SURRENDER brought us an epic story filled with major 1st appearances (IMMORTAL HULK anyone?), and changes to the status quo of the Marvel Universe – NO ROAD HOME is set to do the same!

The FLASH #64 continues the BATMAN / FLASH crossover “THE PRICE OF JUSTICE” with Chapter 2 this week!!!

If you loved BATMAN / FLASH: THE BUTTON – this is a must-read!

You got to hear us rant and rave about how excited we were about this crossover last week, but guess what: we’re gonna do it all over again!

As many of you know — the events of the now-classic FLASHPOINT storyline continue to impact the world of DC post-REBIRTH, and it was never more clear than in the pages of the BATMAN / FLASH: BUTTON crossover!

Now the FLASH and the DARK KNIGHT cross paths again, and it’s gonna be EPIC!

The two greatest detectives in the DC Universe take on the one cold case that will tear them apart!
As chief architect of the Sanctuary program that cost so much for so many, especially Wally West, Batman will be held accountable…by the Flash!

A cold case from the Justice League’s past has mysteriously re-opened, and Batman and the Flash-the only two heroes who stand a chance of cracking the case-are at each other’s throats!

Our heroes must combat a demon from the past while burying their own inner demons in the process…and neither the World’s Greatest Detective nor the Fastest Man Alive will ever be the same again!

But who is really pulling the strings here?

And how does Gotham Girl fit into all this?

Friendships will be tested and blood will be spilled in this titanic crossover event..

IMMORTAL HULK TPB VOL.2 continues one of the best MARVEL books going today!!!

We’ve been so darn impressed with IMMORTAL HULK, and with every issue getting better and better, this is proving to be one of those runs similar to Tom King’s VISION, Donny Cates’s VENOM, and more that absolutely reinvent and reinvigorate the character in a major way that no one saw coming!

In IMMORTAL HULK TP VOL.2, Bruce Banner is alive and on the loose – and now the entire world knows it.

Soon the Hulk finds himself hunted once again – this time by the government, Alpha Flight, the mysterious Shadow Base…and the Avengers!

Someone’s going to find him first, but which option is least bad?

It might not matter, because Bruce has bigger problems. Something terrible has infected him.

Something with unspeakable plans for humanity.

And the only one who knows about this dark infection…is the Hulk!

Meanwhile, Carl “Crusher” Creel was just trying to live.

Now, to save what he’s built for himself, he must do the impossible.

The Absorbing Man must kill the Immortal Hulk! But the Hulk is the one thing standing between the world of the living – and the Green Door!

Collecting IMMORTAL HULK #6-10.

Wanna get into IMMORTAL HULK? We’ve got the first trade paperback, IMMORTAL HULK VOL.1, in stock now to get you up to speed!


Bendis’s WONDER COMICS imprint continues with WONDER TWINS #1, introducing the classic SUPER FRIENDS characters into the DCU!

We’re telling you now: we think it’s pretty darn rad that one of the things WONDER COMICS is bringing us is the introduction of the WONDER TWINS into the DCU!

Seriously: we remember watching many episodes of SUPER FRIENDS back in the day, and loving the WONDER TWINS, so when we saw that Third Eye favorite MARK RUSSELL (FLINTSTONES, SNAGGLEPUSS) was writing it — we knew it was gonna be perfect!

Exiled from their home planet, alien heroes Zan and Jayna must navigate life as teens on Earth at South Metropolis High School, where they’re even bigger outsiders than the typical awkward young adults.

Under the watchful eye of Superman, the brother and sister pull monitor duty at the Hall of Justice as interns, while also trying to overcome the pitfalls of Zan’s brash confidence and Jayna’s shy but streetwise persona.

If you think you know the Wonder Twins, think again-this book takes the form of the unexpected.

CAPTAIN MARVEL #2 continues the killer new CAPTAIN MARVEL series!!

This is the perfect series to start reading before you see the upcoming film!

We loved issue #1 of the new CAPTAIN MARVEL series, and we cannot wait to dig into this weeks issue #2!

The classic Fantastic Four villain MAHKIZMO has taken over Manhattan’s Roosevelt Island and turned it into an apocalyptic wasteland!

When CAPTAIN MARVEL ends up trapped there and cut off from the rest of world (including any Avengers-shaped reinforcements!), she’ll need to build her own team out of allies, old and new – SPIDER-WOMAN, HAZMAT, ECHO and a man known only as SOM – in order to start a revolution to free the island’s civilian inhabitants.

With that kind of backup, Mahkizmo should be toast – but not everything is what it seems on this island…

Scott Snyder & JOCK continue their incredible BATMAN WHO LAUGHS with BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #3!!

We’ve been LOVING the heck out of BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, and Snyder and Jock (BLACK MIRROR) continue to deliver a seriously impressive journey into the dark character of the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS!

In issue #3, all the pieces are starting to fit together as the Batman Who Laughs acquires another key element in his plan-one that is linked to the founding fathers of Gotham City and to a legacy started by the Wayne family and protected by none other than Oswald Cobblepot.

While the Penguin goes head-to-head with the darkest version of his mortal enemy, Batman is forced to compromise his principles and purge the serum that protects his heart from the deadly Joker Toxin!

It’s a no-win situation as writer Scott Snyder and artist Jock return to the sociopath they created in “Black Mirror”: James Gordon Jr.

Make sure you scoop the killer BATMAN WHO LAUGHS #3 Cover B variant by Ricardo Federici!

This series has had some of the best alternate covers we’ve seen, and this weeks COVER B by Ricardo Federici is one of our favorites to date!

RED SONJA returns with an all new ongoing series in RED SONJA #1!

We really dug the 1st issue of the new RED SONJA series which features one of our favorite new comic writers to come out in the last few years, with MARK RUSSELL.

Mark did amazing work on the DC Flintstones series, Snagglepuss, and has done awesome stuff throughout the last couple years and we’re super pumped to see what he does with the SHE DEVIL WITH A SWORD!

No man knows the place of her birth, nor where she learned to wield a sword to shame many a male.

They know only that she is called The She-Devil of The Hyrkanian Steppes.

That, and RED SONJA.

MARK RUSSELL (The Flintstones) and MIRKO COLAK (Conan) bring a savage tale of metal and blood. A world conqueror possesses a massive army and a fatal prophecy. A bastard sorceress craves revenge.

And a fearsome red-haired warrior is made wartime ruler of a homeland set for decimation.
