This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 3/30/16

The new series from SAGA writer BRIAN K. VAUGHAN, PAPER GIRLS, arrives in trade paperback for just $9.99 with PAPER GIRLS VOL.1 TPB! 

Meet the best graphic novel you’ll buy in 2016 this Wednesday!

We are HUGE fans of Brian K. Vaughan – whether it’s his incredible series SAGA, or his stunning work on Y: THE LAST MAN, the man is a dynamite writer, and his newest IMAGE COMICS series, PAPER GIRLS may be our favorite yet!

With gorgeous artwork courtesy of CLIFF CHIANG (who redefined WONDER WOMAN in the NEW 52 Wonder Woman series with BRIAN AZZARELLO), PAPER GIRLS delivers one of the freshest, and most compelling reads we’ve seen in 2016 yet!

In the early hours after Halloween of 1988, four 12-year-old newspaper delivery girls uncover the most important story of all time. Suburban drama and otherworldly mysteries collide in this smashhit series about nostalgia, first jobs, and the last days of childhood. Collects PAPER GIRLS #1-5.

This all new ongoing series captures the charm of a John Hughes movie like BREAKFAST CLUB or SIXTEEN CANDLES and combines it with the sci-fi horror of WAR OF THE WORLDS or INDEPENDENCE DAY!

We highly recommend scooping a copy, and getting into it – it’ll be the best thing you read this year, we can pretty much promise you that!

ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT MARVEL: X-MEN ’92 #1 TAKES YOU BACK TO THE GOLDEN ERA OF ROGUE, GAMBIT & JUBILEE THIS WEDNESDAY!

The all new ongoing X-MEN ’92 series begins, delivering an incredible trip back to the alternate reality where the world of Chris Claremont and Jim Lee’s X-MEN never ended!

One of our favorite highlights from SECRET WARS was the incredible X-MEN ’92 limited series which brought us back into one of the most memorable eras for Marvel’s Merry Mutants: the ’90s!

Now, due to the insane demand and popularity of that limited series, Marvel is bringing us an all new ongoing series that drops us right back into a world where the X-Men still rocked bomber jackets, the most iconic X-Villains were born, and Wolverine was still a mystery!

With Cassandra Nova defeated, the X-MEN have taken in all the young mutants she had rounded up and are officially reopening the Xavier School for Gifted Children, but being responsible won’t stop them from having some totally getting into crazy adventures!

And, guess what: when OMEGA RED enters the picture — things get even crazier!

STREET FIGHTER X GI JOE #2 continues the most perfect crossover ever! 

As kids of the ’80s and ’90s, we totally have fond memories of when the GI JOE 3 3/4″ action figures crossed over into the world of STREET FIGHTER (mostly due in part to the long-forgotten STREET FIGHTER live action flick), and are totally pumped to see a comic that has as much fondness for that period as we do!
