VENOM #25 delivers a landmark moment in Donny Cates’s epic run, AND provides a perfect place to jump on and start reading one of Marvel’s best books — and get in on a potential FIRST APPEARANCE!

Since the first issue, we’ve been so darn hooked on Donny Cates’s incredible VENOM run, and with the giant-sized issue #25 dropping this Wednesday, we just had to give it some serious shout outs and love.

Caught between a Brock and a hard place! Eddie must make a life-altering decision. How does Eddie move on from the events of VENOM ISLAND?

Why is the Cates VENOM run so good? OK, take the world-building and lore-building that writers like ED BRUBAKER (with Captain America), JASON AARON (with THOR), and Scott Snyder (with BATMAN), have done, and apply that to one of comics coolest yet least-explored characters: Eddie Brock.

Add the two together, and factor in the incredible RYAN STEGMAN on art, and you’ve got yourself a recipe for a truly quality comic book series.

Now, VENOM hits issue #25, wrapping up the VENOM ISLAND storyline (which has been awesome), and setting the stage for big, new things to come.

We haven’t heard for sure — but, the rumors swirling say there’s a major CAMEO or 1ST APPEARANCE in this one!

One of our favorite artists in any medium has gotta be JUNJI ITO, and not since the work of HR GIGER, have we seen someone so perfectly capture the creepy, the chilling, and the macabre on the page.

With TWISTED VISIONS, we’re given a first-ever collection of Junji Ito’s artworks, featuring over 130 images from his bestselling manga titles along with rare works.

This sublime collection includes all of Ito’s unforgettable illustrations in both black-and-white and color, from Tomie’s dreadful beauty to the inhuman spirals of Uzumaki. Includes an interview focused on Ito’s art technique as well as commentary from the artist on each work.

AVENGERS #33 kicks off Chapter 1 of the AGE OF KHONSHU, one of the biggest MOON KNIGHT stories to hit the MARVEL UNIVERSE yet!

We’re not gonna lie: we’re HUGE Moon Knight fans at Third Eye, and have long held the character in high regard as one of Marvel’s coolest, and most under-used heroes.

Now, superstar JASON AARON (THOR) delivers a new take on MOON KNIGHT, and we cannot wait!


Mummies are rising from their graves.

Secret armies march by moonlight, from K’un-Lun to Wakanda to Greenwich Village.

A dark god invades Asgard. And the Moon Knight has been unleashed as never before. So begins the Age of Khonshu. So fall the Avengers.

UNNATURAL creator MIRKA ANDOLFO delivers the 2nd issue of her new masterpiece, MERCY, with MERCY #2 this week! A must for fans of UNNATURAL, LADY MECHANIKA and more!

One of our favorite rising stars in comics has gotta be MIRKA ANDOLFO, and her work on the new series, MERCY, may be her best stuff yet!

In MERCY #2, The Woodsburgh Devil strikes again when another innocent victim falls into the clutches of the elusive killer.

Meanwhile, Lady Hellaine invites the local bourgeoisie to a social event, attracting the attention of the powerful Lady Swanson. Subterfuge and lies emerge as the second chapter of MIRKA ANDOLFO’s new project divulges a shocking revelation.

What’s the scoop on MERCY? When the placid mining village of Woodsburgh is disturbed by a series of brutal murders, the settlement is in turmoil.

And as the first snow covers the chaos in a white blanket, a mysterious woman in black arrives, eliciting a totally different kind of unrest. But who is Lady Hellaine, really?

And what’s her secret agenda? Acclaimed UNNATURAL creator MIRKA ANDOLFO presents a sensual Victorian gothic horror about otherness, damnation, redemption, and what it means to be a monster in a horror tale perfect for fans of Penny Dreadful, Crimson Peak, The Alienist, Parasol Protectorate, and Dark Shadows.

Visit for additional MERCY bonus content, including exclusive art, a live-action comic trailer, and supplemental story material.

Need issue 1? We’ve got copies in stock to get you caught up! You can pick ’em up in-store at any of our locations, or order online here (for mail-order, curbside, and more!)

One of the most iconic comics and characters of the IMAGE era has gotta be Michael Turner’s WITCHBLADE, which came out of the Image / Top Cow days, and now, we’re finally getting some really great reprintings of the entire series, and we cannot wait!

This first collection of the bestselling series created by MARC SILVESTRI, DAVID WOHL, BRIAN HABERLIN, and MICHAEL TURNER equips streetwise cop Sara Pezzini with the mysterious Witchblade, a weapon of prehistoric origin and untold power.

As the artifact’s bearer, Sara goes toe to toe with a Machiavellian industrialist, supernatural serial killers, and far worse, as the supernatural underworld of New York alters the course of her destiny forever.

Gorgeously rendered and painstakingly assembled as the first in a series of absolute collected editions.

Star Wars: DOCTOR APHRA #1 kicks off a killer new Star Wars series set during the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK era!

We love the character, Doctor Aphra, and we love the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK era of Star Wars, so we’re pretty darn stoked to see this new ongoing DOCTOR APHRA series kicking off this week!

With the Rebel Alliance back on the run after their defeat at the Battle of Hoth, it’s never been a more dangerous time for outlaws, scoundrels and the errant rogue archaeologist to make their way in the galaxy.

But after a string of bad luck and near escapes, DOCTOR APHRA is back on the job! She’s been keeping a low profile – jobs are scarce and credits scarcer.

But the promise of the score of a lifetime is a chance too good for her to pass up.

And to find the cursed RINGS OF VAALE, Aphra will need a crew of treasure hunters the likes of which the galaxy has never seen before!

But RONEN TAGGE, heir to the powerful Tagge family, also has his eyes on the prize. Do Aphra and her team stand a chance at fortune and glory?
