The road to Marvel’s big Summer mystery begins with INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME #1 this Wednesday!

Hot on the heels of the epic, and compelling ADAM WARLOCK special – the mystery surrounding the INFINITY GEMS begins to unfold in this new mini-event! Do NOT sleep on this — it’s the BEST cosmic stuff since the Abnett / Lanning days of ANNIHILATION, THANOS IMPERATIVE, and more!
Third Eye Faithful, we’re telling ya right now: Marvel has been slowly rebuilding their line over the last couple of months, and one of the brightest shining light is the cosmic stuff brewing in INFINITY COUNTDOWN.
We have not been this amped for cosmic Marvel since the days of the Abnett & Lanning GOTG-era (like ANNIHILATION, WAR OF KINGS, THANOS IMPERATIVE, etc.), and for good reason — writer Gerry Duggan is really getting to the roots of what makes the Marvel Cosmic stuff cool!
We’re talking Magus, we’re talking Super Skrull, we’re talking Shi’ar, I mean, it’s everything you love about a good cosmic epic.
In INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME, it’s all about the Infinity Stones.
Individually, they grant their wielder great power. Together, they grant the power of a god.
Newly reformed and scattered throughout the universe, these artifacts allow the ones who claim them their heart’s desire. Now, as their locations are discovered, forces converge for a battle that will begin the universe down a dark path to the END.
Jump onto this exciting ride that will lead to the biggest Infinity yet!
Plus: The saga of the Infinity Stones-what they are and how they came to be! From creation to destruction to re-creation, this prose primer will tell you everything you need to know about the legendary cosmic gems!
Third Eye Faithful, it’s been a long time since we’ve been this excited about a cosmic storyline, and trust us, as big fans of stuff like ANNIHILATION, THANOS IMPERATIVE, WAR OF KINGS and more — we LOVE the cosmic Marvel universe; it’s just been a long time since it’s been as cool as it’s looking in INFINITY COUNTDOWN!
On top of all that, INFINITY COUNTDOWN is one of a handful of “sleeper” storylines that will be leading into a mysterious big thing Marvel has planned for this Summer.
Much like LOIS AND CLARK, TITANS HUNT and others kind of paved the way for DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH — we are of the understanding that storylines like INFINITY COUNTDOWN, DAMNATION and more, are all taking us in the same direction: a big, epic change to the Marvel U as we know it.
Need the INFINITY COUNTDOWN ADAM WARLOCK special as well to go along with COUNTDOWN PRIME this week? Fear not, Third Eye Faithful, we know it’s sold out nationwide, but we’ve got plenty of copies in stock to hook you up!

Get the INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME #1 GEM HUNTER Variant Cover featuring WOLVERINE for normal cover price this Wednesday!

Sometimes a cover is just too cool for us to not spotlight, and this cover price variant featuring Wolverine holding one of the Infinity Gems by superstar artist ADI GRANOV is definitely one of those kinds of covers!

BRAVE AND THE BOLD #1 featuring BATMAN & WONDER WOMAN is a MUST-READ! This new 6-part mini-series is looking amazing!

Some of the most gorgeous art we’ve seen in a DC book this year (and that’s saying something, with all the high quality reads out there from DC!) A must-read new teaming of the Dark Knight and Wonder Woman that fans of classics like THE HIKETIA will love!
We have to tell ya, DC Comics has been on a real roll through 2017 and 2018, and they’re showing no signs of slowing down in putting out incredible quality comic book goodness.
This week, they blow our minds with the debut issue of the new 6-part miniseries, THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD, featuring BATMAN and WONDER WOMAN.
The gorgeous artwork of Liam Sharp makes the book pop perfectly, and the storyline is one of those truly iconic teaming of Bruce and Diana that always works so perfectly.
In BRAVE AND THE BOLD #1, when a Celtic god’s murder leads to a war between the fairy folk and a possible breach between worlds, Wonder Woman must find the murderer and keep the peace while Batman investigates strange occurrences in Gotham City.
As Diana must turn to the World’s Greatest Detective for help, the two heroes quickly learn their cases may be connected.

DAMNATION #1 debuts from THANOS WINS writer DONNY CATES this Wednesday, delivering a new mini-series that reinvents Marvel’s supernatural side much like ANNIHILATION did its cosmic side!

Get on board this epic mini-crossover event that, along with INFINITY COUNTDOWN, is leading us to the mysterious big things brewing in the Marvel U for Summer!

Third Eye Faithful, by now, you probably know – we’re big, big fans of writer DONNY CATES.
Whether it’s his stellar work on Image favorites like GOD COUNTRY and REDNECK, or his recent Marvel hotness on THANOS WINS and the LOKI SORCERER SUPREME arc in DOCTOR STRANGE, this dude can WRITE!
And, we’re super pumped to see him heading up one of the two big storylines that’re serving as the sleeper events that lead into the major stuff Marvel has brewing for the Summer.
Very much in the spirit of the beloved Marvel ANNIHILATION mini-events from the early 2000s, which helped shape the direction of the entire Marvel COSMIC-Verse; DAMNATION is set to take many of the under-used, and often forgotten characters of the MYSTICAL corner of Marvel Universe, and remind us just why they’re so darn cool!
In this 5-issue mini-series, DONNY CATES picks up the threads of SECRET EMPIRE’s aftermath where the city of Las Vegas was destroyed, and then subsequently raised by DOCTOR STRANGE.
When he raised the city up from the ashes – he brought MEPHISTO along with it, and now, all hell is breaking lose!
In DAMNATION, the city of sin gets its biggest sinner yet.
The devilish villain takes the city for himself and sets his sights on the rest of the world. It’s going to take heroes from all over the Marvel Universe to defeat him, but there’s nothing simple about fighting the lord of Hell.
This is going to be a killer storyline, because hey: DONNY CATES CAN WRITE SOME GOOD BOOKS! And, on top of that – it’s crackling with that same kind of energy and excitement we had for ANNIHILATION, because it’s literally a blank slate of Marvel characters that just do not get enough play.
Obviously, DOCTOR STRANGE has been getting some spotlight for the last few years (because hey, that JASON AARON rule rule!), but when is the last time we got to party with Mephisto, Nightmare, the Son of Satan, Satana, and of course, you know there’s gonna be some Ghost Riders, and familiar fearless vampire killers possibly popping up too, right?
Get stoked, Third Eye Faithful, DAMNATION is gonna rule!

The MILK WARS crossover between the DCU and YOUNG ANIMAL continues with CAVE CARSON / SWAMP THING One-Shot *Milk Wars Part 4* this Wednesday!

Meet writers GERARD WAY & STEVE ORLANDO at Third Eye Annapolis on 2/24/18! 
We’re so stoked about MILK WARS! 1st: we freakin’ love what STEVE ORLANDO has done with the JLA in the DCU since REBIRTH, so you KNOW we’re pumped about that – and then 2nd, it’s the incredible YOUNG ANIMAL imprint and characters (curated by uber-talented GERARD WAY of UMBRELLA ACADEMY fame) getting the spotlight in a big crazy surreal crossover!
What’s not to love?
What’s the scoop on MILK WARS? So, for the last year or so, Gerard Way has been bringing a sense of pure raw comic book madness to the DC Universe in the pages of his YOUNG ANIMAL pop-up imprint.
A finely curated collection of cutting-edge new comics that take classic DCU superheroes, and blends them with post-modern ideas, and a unique kind of magic to make for some of the most fascinating and impressive comics on the stands.
Now, the world of Way’s YOUNG ANIMAL will be colliding with the DC Universe proper in an epic crossover titled MILK WARS.
Whether you’ve been hooked on the YOUNG ANIMAL books all along, or you’ve never read them before — this is a perfect way to introduce yourself to them, while at the same time finding out just how fantastic the current JUSTICE LEAGUE stuff has been!
The fun continues this week in “MILK WARS” part four!
Swamp Thing has detected a disturbance in the Green, and his hunt for it has led him to RetCo headquarters.
There he finds Cave Carson and his crew struggling against being assimilated into RetCo’s diabolical narrative.
Is it possible for Swampy and Cave to destroy the organization from the inside?
Plus, find out how their efforts help Eternity Girl in the final installment of her backup story!
So, what’s the scoop on it?
It all begins in JUSTICE LEAGUE / DOOM PATROL #1, in January, as a brand new villain, designed by comic legend FRANK QUITELY (WE 3, AUTHORITY, ALL STAR SUPERMAN) known as the MILKMAN MAN.
In the vein of THE ANTI-MONITOR from CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, the Milkman Man’s goal is to homogenize the DC Universe and remove all traces of the beautiful strangeness and odd wonder that makes the DCU so unique.
Of course – this doesn’t sit well with the world’s most unusual heroes: DOOM PATROL.

Which is where Valentine Richards, a failed novelist turned reporter, comes in. Val is hired to travel to Luna’s remote castle home and uncover where the old star has been all these years, and just how much of what he says is actually true.
But once Val starts to hear Luna’s tale, she finds herself entering into an insane world of psychedelic violence and explosive supernatural adventure.

Vertigo legend KAREN BERGER’s new imprint BERGER BOOKS (HUNGRY GHOSTS) continues with MATA HARI #1 this Wednesday!

Based off the true story of a World War I-era spy — MATA HARI is a must-read blend of historical fact with otherworldly fiction!
Many of you may already know all about Karen Berger and the incredible work she did through the years building the legendary publishing imprint, VERTIGO.
So, when we saw she was giving a special imprint at Dark Horse to curate some of the best darn comics coming out — we knew we had to take notice.
Following hot on the heels of the incredible HUNGRY GHOSTS #1 from Anthony Bourdain, comes the MATA HARI #1, and it’s AWESOME!
Dancer. Courtesan. Spy.
Executed by a French firing squad in 1917.
100 years on from her death, questions are still raised about her conviction. Now, the lesser-known, often tragic story of the woman who claimed she was born a princess, and died a figure of public hatred with no one to claim her body, is told by breakout talent writer Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd), artist Ariela Kristantina (Insexts), and colorist Pat Masioni drawing on biographies and released MI5 files.
In this first part of a five-issue miniseries, we meet Mata Hari in prison at the end of her life as she writes her memoir-part romantic tale of a Javanese princess who performed “sacred” nude dances for Europe’s elite, and part real-life saga of a disgraced wife and mother, who had everything she loved taken from her.
But, as she sits trial for treason and espionage, we hear another tale: one of a flamboyant Dutch woman who became “the most dangerous spy France has ever captured”-a double agent who whored herself for secrets, lived a life of scandal, and loved only money.
Leading us to ask… who was the real Mata Hari?

Bongo’s long-running tradition of comic goodness continues with all new SIMPSONS one-shot featuring KRUSTY THE CLOWN!

We’re huge SIMPSONS fans at Third Eye, and we gotta tell ya, for decades, BONGO has been doing an incredible job of delivering top notch SIMPSONS comics.
We always really dig when they do one of their one-shots featuring some of the supporting characters, and one of our favorite Simpsons characters, KRUSTY THE CLOWN, gets the spotlight this week!
In this one-shot, Krusty the Clown finds himself alone and wandering the empty streets of Springfield, not a friend, neighbor, debt collector, or annoying fan in sight.
All that he is left with are his memories of a life in showbiz lived to the fullest-a little song, a little dance, and a little seltzer down his pants.
But where did all the people go? It would appear that he is the Laugh Man on Earth!
