Bruce Banner is BACK as THE IMMORTAL HULK in IMMORTAL HULK #1 aka the best darn Hulk title we’ve read in… forever!!

A return to the monstrous roots of the Hulk as we’re introduced to the most exciting incarnation of Bruce Banner since the Grey Hulk and Planet Hulk days: THE IMMORTAL HULK!
Marvel has been on fire in 2018 with hit after hit after hit, and THE IMMORTAL HULK is one of the new Marvel series that we’ve been most excited about.
First off, it’s the return of Bruce Banner as the Hulk – which we could not be more stoked for – and secondly, it’s one of the most interesting takes on the Hulk mythos that we’ve seen since the early days of PLANET HULK.
The tone and feel is almost reminiscent in some ways of the kind of superhero-charged horror found in a book like Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING, but that still doesn’t quite capture the tone.
All we know is that this book is GOOD, and we’re pumped to see what’s coming next.
In IMMORTAL HULK #1, you’d never notice the man. He doesn’t like to be noticed.
He’s quiet. Calm. Never complains.
If someone were to walk up and shoot him in the head… all he’d do is die.
Until night falls. And someone else gets up again.
The man’s name is Banner.
The horror is THE IMMORTAL HULK.

We LOVE the work of KAARE ANDREWS, and when we saw he was putting together some stellar variant covers for launch titles like THOR, HULK and IRON MAN – we knew we had to shout it out!

DARK NIGHTS METAL writer SCOTT SNYDER debuts his new ongoing JUSTICE LEAGUE series with JUSTICE LEAGUE #1, delivering the most exciting JUSTICE LEAGUE we’ve seen in ages!

In the aftermath of METAL and NO JUSTICE, comes the biggest JUSTICE LEAGUE you’ve seen yet!
Justice League SHOULD be DC’s biggest book, right? And, we’re pretty happy to say that this week, the new JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 definitely cements its status as that!
Seriously: this is good comics, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re telling you right now: if you read DC Comics – you need to be jumping on board JUSTICE LEAGUE as this is the center-piece of everything that makes the DCU tick!
What’s the scoop on JUSTICE LEAGUE #1? A brand-new era begins here! Comics legends Scott Snyder and Jim Cheung launch the Justice League into a cosmos-shaking mystery that will draw out their most terrible foes…in ways our heroes couldn’t possibly imagine!
In this debut issue, Martian Manhunter struggles to protect the team from an incoming threat that will shatter the world as they know it, while a familiar face strikes out on a dark path…
Big villains, big heroes, big stories – if you loved METAL, and you’re digging everything going on with DC Comics — you need to get into this one, trust us!

BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS CONTINUES TO MAKE DC HISTORY WITH MAN OF STEEL #1, 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 #2, with an arsonist loose in Metropolis, Superman’s powers are almost useless in finding the culprit.
And back at the Daily Planet, everyone wants to know what’s going on with Lois Lane.
How can Clark hold on to the secret of what happened to Lois and Jon much longer?
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!

DEADPOOL gets a fresh start with an exciting new era as I HATE FAIRYLAND creator SKOTTIE YOUNG comes on board THE MERC WITH A MOUTH!

Always wanted to read DEADPOOL & been waiting for a good starting point? This is it!
We’re all huge fans of the Merc with a Mouth at Third Eye, and when we saw one of our favorite peeps in comics, the one and only SKOTTIE YOUNG (I HATE FAIRYLAND), was going to be taking over on writing chores — we knew we were in for a treat!
In DEADPOOL #1, we see how it’s been a while since Deadpool’s had to merc to make ends meet, but hey, things are tough all over.
While Deadpool tries to get his humble mercenary-for-hire business back off the ground, a catastrophic threat so unfathomably huge, so mind-breakingly cataclysmic it defies description, is heading toward Earth, and there’s only ONE PERSON WHO CAN STOP IT!!!
Oh no, wait…it’s not Wade, is it? Oh, %$@#. It’s Wade.

Get the exclusive DEADPOOL #1 Skottie Young Baby Variant while supplies last!

DEADPOOL #1 also features a ton of rad new variant covers, and our favorite is this killer SKOTTIE YOUNG Baby variant featuring the biggest darn gun we’ve ever seen!

The countdown to the Wedding of BATMAN AND CATWOMAN continues in the BATMAN: PRELUDE TO THE WEDDING one-shots this week with NIGHTWING VS HUSH *Chapter 2 of the Wedding Preludes*!

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!
Beginning 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 2nd chapter? Dick Grayson has a lot of responsibility. Being the original partner to Batman, he’s the natural choice to be Bruce Wayne’s best man.
So if anyone has to get to the wedding, it’s going to be him. Too bad Hush has other plans-and maybe Bruce Wayne does, too!
Wanna catch up? We’ve still got Chapter 1 (RAS AL GHUL VS ROBIN) in stock to get you current!

The road to the Wedding continues with a new 2-part story arc in BATMAN, featuring THE JOKER! Get BATMAN #48 featuring THE BEST MAN Part 1!!

With only 2 issues to go until wedding bells ring, THE JOKER makes a frightening return!
Tom King’s BATMAN has easily been one of the best things to happen to comics in the last few years, and the run just gets better and better as it moves further along.
In this week’s BATMAN #48, we’re treated to THE BEST MAN Chapter 1, which is the 1st of a 2-part prelude into the WEDDING OF BATMAN AND CATWOMAN!
Batman and Catwoman decide it might be better to elope rather than go through some big, stodgy wedding ceremony, but no sooner do they put their marriage on the fast track than The Joker appears!
And when The Joker kidnaps the Caped Crusader, will he give his old foe a piece of his mind or bash in his brains?
Still not reading King’s BATMAN? This is a perfect issue to jump on board with before the Wedding happens!
