ANALOG #1 delivers one of the most exciting IMAGE COMICS we’ve seen since the debut of SEVEN TO ETERNITY & KILL OR BE KILLED!


Meet writer GERRY DUGGAN & Third Eye variant cover artist MIKE HAWTHORNE at Third Eye on FCBD!
An eerie look the influence of social media on our privacy mixed with DETECTIVE COMICS. 
Image Comics is heating things up big-time with tons of killer new releases, and this week, they’ve got TWO major ones on the way with the highly anticipated ANALOG #1 leading the way!
We’re so excited for this one on so many levels, it’s ridiculous.
First off, the story is totally in tune and on point with the scariest parts of modern society – the power of social media, and its impact on the privacy of human beings.
Secondly, it’s Gerry Duggan, who is one of the best darn writers in comics, and consistently delivers great reads all the time. This is clearly the story he’s been itching to tell, and we feel it may be one of his best works yet.
Third, the artwork of David Sullivan makes this book pop, and fits the very BLADE RUNNER meets BLACK MIRROR tone of the story perfectly.
Seriously, Third Eye Faithful, you gotta trust me when I tell you: this book crackles with that special kind of energy we felt the first time we flipped through iconic Image hits like EAST OF WEST, TOKYO GHOST, SEVEN TO ETERNITY and many more.
What’s the scoop on ANALOG? Five years from now: the security of the internet has been totally destroyed.
Secrets are no longer sent over the web, they’re entrusted to armed couriers called “Ledger Men,” like human punching-bag Jack McGinnis.
He’s got a gun in one hand and a briefcase handcuffed to the other. Danger lurks around every corner, and Jack has to watch his back-because he had a part in the cyber attack that changed the world.
Get in on the ground floor of this new ongoing series and thrill as we slam Jack’s fist into the faces of spies, mercs, fascists, and eventually less punchable adversaries like a very grumpy artificial intelligence.
Get the exclusive ANALOG #1 Third Eye Comics x 10th Anniversary variant by Mike Hawthorne on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2018!
We feel so strongly about ANALOG, and because we’ve got such a long history and friendship as a store with Gerry & Mike, we had to put together something special to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of Third Eye, and that’s this incredible ANALOG #1 variant by MIKE HAWTHORNE (DEADPOOL, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN).
Available exclusively at our FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2018 x 10th ANNIVERSARY signing event with Gerry & Mike for just $3.99, you know you’ll have to get a copy of this killer cover & add it to your collection!

SONIC returns in an all new ongoing series with SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #1 beginning a new era of SONIC comics!!

One of the comics we all held near and dear growing up returns with an all new ongoing series!
OK, so like many of you, we grew up reading the heck out of those great Archie SONIC comics and when those stopped coming out – we gotta admit: we were bummed.
However, the incredible folks at IDW (who’ve handled licenses like TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, GHOSTBUSTERS, and so much more so well) are handling the SONIC comics now, and we’re so stoked!
In SONIC THE HEDGEHOG #1, after defeating the evil Dr. Eggman’s latest plot, Sonic is racing around the world to shut down the robotic Badnik forces that are still attacking villages.
But it’s a big job for one person-even Sonic the Hedgehog!
Fortunately, he’ll have some help from his best friend: Tails!

Image debuts another genre-smashing hit with ISOLA #1 this week delivering a unique blend of Miyazaki / Ghibli-style aesthetic and SEVEN TO ETERNITY-style science fiction!!

Meet creators Brenden Fletcher (Batgirl of Burnside, Motor Crush) & Karl Kerschl (Gotham Academy) at Third Eye on Saturday 6/9/18!
IMAGE is KILLING it this week, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re so happy to see a true return to form for one of our favorite publishers with books like this, ANALOG, and their recent hit, GIDEON FALLS.
As the home of premiere top quality storytelling, it’s really awesome to see a new crop of Image books that deliver the goods, and ISOLA definitely fits the bill.
In ISOLA #1, the captain of the Royal Guard has fled the capital city with the Queen of Maar, suffering under the effects of an evil spell.
Captain Rook’s only hope of returning Queen Olwyn to her throne and saving the kingdom from impending war lies on an island half a world away-a place known in myth as Isola, land of the dead.
Featuring lush color work by MSASSYK (Gotham Academy) and letters by ADITYA BIDIKAR (MOTOR CRUSH). Recommended for fans of Studio Ghibli and the work of Hayao Miyazaki.
Imagine the sweeping science fiction fantasy storytelling of SEVEN TO ETERNITY and mix that with a very Studio Ghibli aesthetic, and that really captures the tone of ISOLA well.

Get the ISOLA #1 Cover B Variant for just $3.99 !

With a series as special as ISOLA, we’d say awesome alternate covers are totally warranted, and the Cover B variant totally captures the vibe of ISOLA in a gorgeous, lush way.
Make sure you snag a copy this week at Third Eye while supplies last!

Another incredible addition to the DC Universe following up on the heels of METAL from LUTHER STRODE writer JUSTIN JORDAN
Another killer addition to DC’s NEW AGE OF HEROES is the CURSE OF BRIMSTONE, which in the aftermath of METAL, takes us straight into the depths of the supernatural side of the DCU!
In CURSE OF BRIMSTONE, Joe Chamberlain would do anything to save his small, forgotten town-even make a deal with the devil.
But things get worse, and Joe finds himself cursed with the power of BRIMSTONE. With the power of fire and destruction coursing through his hands, Joe must now track down and destroy the demon he made his deal with before the power he now wields destroys the town he was trying to save.
But as the fiery pain inside him grows, can this young man overcome his own demons before his power rips him apart from the inside out?
What’s the scoop on the NEW AGE OF HEROES? Well, Third Eye Faithful, there’s not many times we can truly say: you’re going to remember where you were when you got these, but with the NEW AGE OF HEROES books, we’re saying it right now – you’re gonna remember exactly what was going on the day you came into Third Eye and scooped ’em.
It’s no secret that DC Comics has really captured lightning in a bottle with their incredible output lately, whether it be the mainline events like METAL and DOOMSDAY CLOCK, or the self-contained ELSEWORLDS-style hits like BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT — they are truly where it’s at for great stories with great artwork right now.
And, we gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful: we’ve seen what they have planned for 2018, and it’s huge. We’re talking BIG stuff, and that means DC has no signs of slowing down whatsoever.

VENOMIZED #1 kicks off 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 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?
