ACTION COMICS #1000 arrives this Wednesday delivering one of the biggest releases of 2018 as Brian Michael Bendis makes his DC debut & more!

Over 80 pages of comics biggest superstars, from SCOTT SNYDER (DARK NIGHTS METAL) to TOM KING (BATMAN) to BENDIS – ACTION #1000 reminds us all just how cool Superman can be, and kicks off the upcoming Bendis MAN OF STEEL series!
We’re so darn pumped about ACTION COMICS #1,000 – it’s not even funny! We gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful, there’s some things in comics that are just plain special, and one of those things is the legacy of ACTION COMICS.
Over half a century ago, ACTION COMICS #1 changed the game entirely when it comes to the medium we all love and cherish so much, and things haven’t been the same ever since.
Now, with comics longest running title coming up on it’s iconic 1,000th issue — we knew we had to do something extra special to celebrate, and with the return of the Man of Steel’s iconic costume, red trunks and all, we had no choice but to call it Action Wednesday at Third Eye!
On Wednesday 4/18/18, we’ll be celebrating 1,000 issues of ACTION COMICS with a special edition release of ACTION COMICS #1000, which features the biggest line-up of all-star comics talent we’ve seen yet.
We’re talking GEOFF JOHNS (DOOMSDAY CLOCK), we’re talking TOM KING (BATMAN, MISTER MIRACLE), we’re talking SCOTT SNYDER (DARK NIGHTS METAL), we’re talking BRAD MELTZER (IDENTITY CRISIS), and yes, we’re talking BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS’s first ever DC Comics work!
Not to mention that this is a glimpse at what will be Bendis’s ongoing DC series, MAN OF STEEL, a new mini-series where the comics superstar responsible for iconic hits like DAREDEVIL, ALIAS, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN and more, will be redefining SUPERMAN as we know him for the modern age.

MIDNIGHT RELEASE TUESDAY NIGHT 4/17! Join us at 12AM 4/18/18 to kick off ACTION WEDNESDAY! Meet contributing ACTION #1000 writer TOM KING (BATMAN , MISTER MIRACLE) and more!

We gotta admit: Supes being back in the red trunks is pretty darn cool, ’cause c’mon: it’s his iconic look, and we wanted to do something extra special to help celebrate!
So, we’re going to have a very exclusive, available ONE day only Third Eye Blue Kryptonite pin for you to score. All you have to do is wear a pair of red trunks, any red trunks, on the outside of your pants when you come visit Third Eye on 4/18/18!

The road to Marvel’s new direction continues in a big way with INFINITY COUNTDOWN #2 as the search for the INFINITY GEM rages on!

The best darn cosmic Marvel book we’ve seen since the era of Abnett & Lanning’s GOTG and ANNIHILATION runs!
Marvel continues to keep on delivering the goods with INFINITY COUNTDOWN as this weeks issue #2 shows us that the secret is out about the Power Stone, and the Chitauri are in on the action as the Raptors, Novas and Guardians meet for a showdown in space!
PLUS: Adam Warlock enters the fray after the events of INFINITY COUNTDOWN: ADAM WARLOCK-his next move will set the stage for cosmic chaos to come!
What’s the scoop on INFINITY COUNTDOWN? Marvel is really, really building towards some very big stuff this Spring and Summer, and ground zero for a ton of it is in INFINITY COUNTDOWN, which is also the best darn cosmic Marvel book we’ve read since the ABNETT / LANNING-era of GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, THANOS IMPERATIVE, WAR OF KINGS, and more!
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.
In INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1, as the Infinity Stones reappear around the cosmos, the ultimate race for power is on!!
Battles will be fought, blood will be spilled, lives will be lost… all as the greatest cosmic heroes and villains vie for possession of the Power Stone, towering over a remote asteroid, somehow grown to the size of a building.
Watch as the path to Infinity opens before your eyes and the END lies near…
Need the INFINITY COUNTDOWN ADAM WARLOCK special, along with the INFINITY COUNTDOWN PRIME one-shot that served as prequels to INFINITY COUNTDOWN and of course, INFINITY COUNTDOWN #1? We’ve got ’em all in stock to catch you up!

VENOMIZED #3 continues the mini-series that concludes what began in VENOMVERSE with the POISONS & sets the stage for what’s to come in Donny Cates & Ryan Stegman’s new ongoing VENOM series this Summer!

In the VENOMIZED mini-series, the story that began in VENOMVERSE reaches its epic conclusion with VENOMIZED! The POISONS, a species that hungers for super-powered symbiotes and their hosts, have picked their next target…THE MARVEL UNIVERSE ITSELF!
Their first objective? Put every superhuman in a Klyntar symbiote – and CONSUME THEM! But with VENOM and the X-MEN still missing after the events of “Poison-X,” the planet, and its heroes, is defenseless!
This will be the big finale to all the crazy symbiote-planet stuff that’s been running through the VENOM books for the last year or so, and will set the stage for what is easy the most anticipated VENOM series since the iconic RICK REMENDER & TONY MOORE run from a few years back!
In VENOMIZED #3, with one of their strongest allies consumed by the Poisons, the heroes of Earth must rally and stand against one of their own!
Meanwhile, the Poisons have been working in secret to shore up their defenses, but have they thought of everything?

After debuting and surprising everyone out of nowhere in the WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION arc last Summer (which you can catch up on in graphic novel form and single issues still at Third Eye!), WEAPON H has turned out to be one of the most exciting and interesting new characters we’ve seen to come down the pipeline in a hot minute.

Now, our hero is on the run, as he tries to escape his mysterious past and seclude himself from the rest of society.
But when a new kind of Wendigo threatens the lives of others, will Weapon H be able to shirk his responsibility?
Does any of his humanity remain?
