THE LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 arrives this week, delivering the official origins of Carol Danvers! Get the full scoop on one of the Marvel Universe’s biggest icons in this new limited series

Stoked for Captain Marvel to come to the MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE? Find out where she came from, and what she’s all about here in this incredible new series!
We’ve been long-time fans of CAPTAIN MARVEL and Carol Danvers, and when we saw she’d be one of the next Marvel icons to make her way to the silver screen courtesy of the Marvel Cinematic Universe — we were pretty stoked!
Now, Marvel is giving you a perfect chance to learn all about who Captain Marvel is, and what she’s all about in this new limited series chronicling her origins, and where she is now in the Marvel U today!
Carol Danvers was just a girl from the Boston suburbs who loved science and the Red Sox until a chance encounter with a Kree hero gave her incredible super-powers.
Now, she’s a leader in the Avengers and the commander of Alpha Flight. But what if there were more to the story?
When crippling anxiety attacks put her on the sidelines in the middle of a fight, Carol finds herself reliving memories of a life she thought was far behind her.
You can’t outrun where you’re from – and sometimes, you HAVE to go home again. But there are skeletons in Captain Marvel’s closet – and what she discovers will change her entire world.
Written by best-selling author Margaret Stohl and drawn by fan-favorite comics veteran Carlos Pacheco, this is the true origin of Captain Marvel.

Get the incredible ARTGERM alternate cover to LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 this week at Third Eye!

We’ll have TWO different ARTGERM variants to LIFE OF CAPTAIN MARVEL #1 this week, one which features the title text & trade dress and is only $4.99, normal cover price, and then another one that’s much more limited — a virgin variant (like pictured to the left here) that’s a special 1 in 200 copies (and is a bit more than cover price – please email info@thirdeyecomics.com to check availability).

The worlds of INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US and MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE collide in an ultra-violent blend of the DCU vs. ETERNIA!!

As big-time kids of the ’80s — we love all things HE-MAN, and as big-time comic heads, we love all things INJUSTICE, so when we saw that the two would be colliding together into this amazing Elseworlds mini-series… we knew we had to shout it out big time!
Believing He-man and the Masters of the Universe defeated, a robotic impostor has seized control of Eternia-but not for long!
After freeing his kingdom from this strongman’s rule, Prince Adam learns not everyone is pleased to see the pretender deposed-but Adam knows the value of freedom.
So when heroes from another dimension ask his aid in deposing a super-hero turned dictator, he agrees. Teaming up with Batman against the Superman of the Injustice Universe, He-man and his new allies face dangerous and familiar enemies in a battle where no world is safe!
We CANNOT wait for this! First off: Tim Seeley is like the perfect dude to write a HE-MAN comic, like, seriously — have you seen the awesomeness he’s done at DARK HORSE putting together all those rad HE-MAN books?
Secondly: it’s INJUSTICE! The ultra-violent alternate universe of the DCU where Superman killed the Joker, and went crazy. You can only imagine what that means for the Masters of the Universe, ya know?
This is gonna rule – make sure you scoop yourself a copy this week!

In BATMAN #51, the honeymoon’s over for Bruce Wayne as Gotham City’s most prominent citizen gets selected for jury duty in a chilling court case involving Mr. Freeze!
Freeze claims the charges should be dismissed because Batman used excessive force; cue the outrage and media circus. While doing his civic duty, Wayne’s forced to take a hard look at the Dark Knight’s methods.
And hey…what is Dick Grayson doing running around the city dressed as Batman?

Get the BATMAN #51 Cover B by KAARE ANDREWS (ACTION COMICS #1000 Third Eye cover artist)
