BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS CONTINUES TO MAKE DC HISTORY WITH MAN OF STEEL #4, a 6-issue mini-series that takes us into the Bendis era of SUPERMAN!

The architect of Marvel since the early 2000s has made the switch to DC, and it all starts here with the most exciting Superman #1 we’ve seen in a long time!
If you’ve read comics in the last couple of decades, then you know that Brian Michael Bendis is responsible for some of the most incredible modern comic stories of all-time.
Whether it’s his universe-defining work in series like AVENGERS DISASSEMBLED, HOUSE OF M, and NEW AVENGERS, or his incredible world-building in series like ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN — Bendis has always delivered big-time.
And, making the jump to DC Comics may be the best thing Bendis has ever done, because we gotta admit: it had been a minute since he had wowed us at Marvel, but what’d you expect after nearly 20 years of amazing stories?
A fresh new sandbox to play in is exactly what Bendis needed, and it’s super obvious in MAN OF STEEL #1, which is – in our opinion – the best darn Superman comic we’ve read in ages.
Seriously: we have been huge fans of recent runs from Jurgens and Tomasi, both of which were INCREDIBLE, but we gotta tell you: the Bendis era for SUPERMAN, if issue #1 of MAN OF STEEL is any indication, is going to be AMAZING.
In MAN OF STEEL #4, Rogol Zaar has committed a string of atrocities across the cosmos that have led him to the Fortress of Solitude-and now Superman and Supergirl plan to crush his schemes!
But are even two Kryptonians enough to stop his sinister machinations?
Need to catch up? We’ve got issues 1-3 in stock to get you current!
Want the full scoop on everything Bendis has planned with MAN OF STEEL, and then what follows after this 6-issue mini-series? Click here for our Third Eye Guide to Bendis on SUPERMAN!

The definitive ZELDA book you need!
We loved the HYRULE HISTORIA and ARTS & ARTIFACTS collections that came out a few years ago, and when we saw that DARK HORSE had a new book for THE LEGEND OF ZELDA on the way — we knew we had to shout it out!
In the LEGEND OF ZELDA Encyclopedia, we’re given a comprehensive collection of enemies and items, potions to poes, an expansion of the lore touched upon in Hyrule Historia, concept art, screencaps, maps, main characters and how they relate, languages, and much, much more, including an exclusive interview with Series Producer, Eiji Aonuma!

Make sure to collect all 5 to connect the covers into one awesome large image as seen below!
Tom King’s BATMAN run, without a doubt, has been one of the most amazing, and most impressive runs on the character that we’ve seen since the Snyder / Capullo era, and continues to keep us on the edges of our seats.
Now, with the wedding of Batman and Catwoman getting so close (7/4/18 – mark the date!), we’re pretty darn pumped to see the storylines in the comics leading into it kicking off!
Continuing this week, every week from now through June, will feature a one-shot counting down to the wedding of BATMAN AND CATWOMAN, and showcasing just how the entire Bat-Universe is dealing with such a big thing!
What’s the scoop on this week’s 4th chapter? Red Hood has always been the one standing slightly apart from the rest of the Bat crew.
Some see him as the Robin gone bad – which is exactly the kind of thing someone like Anarky can exploit.
Now Red Hood is running security at Catwoman’s bachelorette party – and if Anarky can crash it, that could be the final straw for Jason Todd!

This gorgeous, all-new original graphic novel is a MUST-READ!
We’ve been huge fans of what DC has been doing over the last few years, and BATMAN: THE DARK PRINCE CHARMING is an example of some of our favorite stuff, as they’ve brought some incredible international talent to the DCU in a big way!
We’re huge fans of a lot of the incredible comics we see coming over places like Italy, Spain, and France, and when we saw that the legendary ENRICO MARINI was going to be doing a BATMAN graphic novel — we knew we had to shout it out!
In this stunning new work, the question is asked: what secret connection do both Batman and The Joker share with a strange and mysterious young girl?
After she’s kidnapped by The Joker, Batman must plunge deep into the underworld of Gotham City and race against time to find out where she’s being held. The stakes are high, and for Batman, it’s personal!
In volume 2, Batman hunts down The Joker in a desperate attempt to rescue the young girl who may or may not be the daughter of Bruce Wayne.
But The Joker’s prisoner may be more formidable in her own right than he anticipated.
And what role might Catwoman have to play in the final showdown between two sworn enemies?

One of the best IMAGE debuts we’ve seen in a minute! Pirates & Portland circa the 1800s — crazy awesome good read! Picture KILL BILL meets pirates!
Holy crap, we LOVED the 1st issue of SHANGHAI RED, and we cannot wait to get it into your hands this week, Third Eye Faithful!

Drugged, kidnapped, and sold to a ship’s captain, she wakes up on a boat headed out to sea for years, unable to escape or even reveal who she truly is.

ICE CREAM MAN VOL.1 arrives from Image Comics this week, delivering an eerie TWIN PEAKS / DAVID LYNCH style brand of horror and humor!!

We love comics that just plain celebrate the weirdness and wonder that can only be captured in comics, and ICE CREAM MAN is one of our favorites.
This bizarre, yet compelling series from Image has quickly become a favorite for us, and if you’re not reading it yet, we highly recommend jumping on with the trade paperback this week as it captures the kind of strange surrealism and horror of things like David Lynch films, and comics like The Goon perfectly. It truly is a unique work though, and we really dig it!
Chocolate, vanilla, existential horror, addiction, musical fantasy…there’s a flavor for everyone’s misery.
ICE CREAM MAN is a genre-defying comic book series, featuring disparate “one-shot” tales of sorrow, wonder, and redemption.
Each installment features its own cast of strange characters, dealing with their own special sundae of suffering. And on the periphery of all of them, like the twinkly music of his colorful truck, is the Ice Cream Man-a weaver of stories, a purveyor of sweet treats. Friend. Foe. God. Demon.
The man who, with a snap of his fingers-lickety split!-can change the course of your life forever.

Down but not out, Stephen may just have one last play left in him – one that could shake the Marvel Universe to its core!
