This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 8/8/18

The biggest new Marvel series launch of 2018 is here: Welcome back the Fantastic Four with the incredible FANTASTIC FOUR #1 this Wednesday!

This is the best FF we’ve read since the days of John Byrne & Jonathan Hickman’s epic runs!

We’re super pumped about the Fantastic Four. Heck, more pumped than we’ve been in a while about Marvel’s First Family, and we’re telling you now: you will be too.

This is seriously one of the best new books we’ve read this year, and it just crackles with that raw energy that screams THIS IS GOOD COMICS!

Seriously: Dan Slott (SUPERIOR SPIDERMAN) and Sara Pichelli (Miles Morales Ultimate Spider-Man) hit it out of the park here, and we really cannot recommend the book enough.

Everything about this release is perfect. From the incredible storytelling of Slott to the gorgeous art of Pichelli to heck, all the amazing alternate covers kicking off the release.

This is quality stuff, and if you’re looking for one of the MUST-READ Marvel books to jump onto — this is it!

On top of all this — you’ve all been wondering just where the Marvel Universe headed post-SECRET WARS, and while there were some periods where things were a tad off, things have kicked into high gear in 2018, and guess what:

FANTASTIC FOUR is the book to read to help fill in all the dots. Even more so than AVENGERS, this is where the modern mythology and tapestry of Marvel continuity is being built, and we’re so darn pumped!

In FANTASTIC FOUR #1, Since the end of SECRET WARS, there’s been a gap in the Marvel Universe.

A void no other team can fill. And it’s time for the world to move on. But can it?

A life-changing decision by the Thing! A momentous declaration by the Human Torch! A clarion call-to-arms that summons Doctor Doom!

And a signal in the sky that heralds the return of hope to the Marvel Universe!

All this, and Alicia Masters adopts kittens! So cute! Plus, the Impossible Man!

CATWOMAN #2 delivers its second big issue, and it continues to be amazing!!!

Spinning out of the events of Tom King’s epic BATMAN #50, the new CATWOMAN series by JOELLE JONES may be our favorite take on Selina Kyle yet, and this weeks issue #2 continues the awesomeness!

Gotham’s a toxic litter box for Selina Kyle of late, so she hits the road looking to clear the air, change her look and clear her name, too-there’s a copycat burglar swiping her M.O. who needs sorting out.

In her hometown, Catwoman runs afoul of a crime boss who’s also hunting this impostor.

Can the two declare a truce to hunt a mutual enemy, or will Selina end up just more roadkill?

BLACK BADGE #1 delivers the concept of the SPECIAL OPS branch of the Boy Scouts! Killer new read from the creators behind GRASS KINGS, MIND MGMT & more!

BLACK BADGE is a must-read for fans of movies like THE GOONIES!

We love a cool new concept, and one of the coolest is BLACK BADGE, which debuts this week from BOOM!

In this killer new series, Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins, the team behind Grass Kings , reunite for a new ongoing series about a top-secret, elite branch of boy scouts tasked by the government to take on covert missions.

Among their organization, the Black Badges are the elite; the best of the best. They are feared even by the other badges.

The missions they take are dangerous, and they will only get worse as their leaders attention is split between their mission objectives and tracking down a lost team member. A team member who disappeared years ago, presumed dead.

A haunting look at foreign policy, culture wars and isolationism through the lens of kids who know they must fix the worlds that adults have broken.

This was a fantastic read, and we have a feeling it’s gonna turn into one of those series folks wished they had jumped onto from the beginning! Do NOT sleep on issue #1 this week!

SANDMAN UNIVERSE #1 brings the world of Neil Gaiman’s THE SANDMAN back to comics, and we are so stoked!!

One of the greatest comic series of all-time, THE SANDMAN, is getting a new lease on life as Neil Gaiman oversees the return of the incredible world he created in the ’90s for Vertigo.

From the mind of New York Times #1 bestselling author Neil Gaiman comes a new world filled with dreams, nightmares and wonderful characters living together in a shared universe for a new story unlike anything we’ve ever seen before.

A rift between worlds has opened, revealing a space beyond the Dreaming. Meanwhile, a book from Lucien’s library is discovered by a group of children in the waking world where it should not exist.

Lucien calls for Matthew the Raven to seek out their master, Daniel, Lord of Dreams.

As Matthew flies across the Waking World and others, he finds a young boy named Timothy Hunter who, in his dreams, has become the world’s most powerful magician-but in his nightmares he is the world’s greatest villain.

A new House has appeared in the realm of the Dreaming: the House of Whispers, with its proprietor, a fortune-teller called Erzulie. And elsewhere, Lucifer has fallen again, only this time he might be trapped in a Hell of his own design.

Spiraling out of this special issue will be four all-new series set in the Sandman Universe. It all starts here!

FARMHAND #2 delivers more awesomeness from CHEW’s ROB GUILLORY this week at Third Eye!

In issue #2 of FARMHAND, Ezekiel Jenkins just wants to forget his past.

Unfortunately, now that he’s returned to his family’s farm, that’s going to be damn near impossible.

And if dealing with his own demons isn’t enough, today he’ll be dealing with a few of his father’s as well.

What’s the scoop on FARMHAND? The scoop on it? Meet Jedidiah Jenkins, he’s a farmer who lives in Freetown, Louisiana.

He’s your typical farmer, until he has some very frightening visions that download scientific data into his brain that’s so cutting edge – it hasn’t even been invented yet.

From there, he creates the Jedidiah Seed.

When planted and watered, he’s able to grow human organs that heal fast and can be customized in a hundred different ways.

That’s right, Third Eye Faithful: a farmer who grows human organs.

Of course, things go awry when Jedidiah becomes an overnight sensation, and shortly after, the recipients of these plant / human organs tend to not work out so swift.

When Jedidiah’s long estranged son, Ezekiel, shows up – things really kick into an interesting direction.

This book is incredible. Rob’s art is the best we’ve ever seen it, and the storytelling here is the perfect blend of weird and warm – the kind of weird and warm that really shows you just how a story about growing human organs out of a farm can tug at your heart strings.

SIXTH GUN creators reunite on SHADOW ROADS & we’re loving it as the Old West horror continues in SHADOW ROADS #2!

The Sixth Gun was one of our favorite series of the last few years, and when we saw that the creators, CULLEN BUNN and BRIAN HURTT, would be reuniting to explore a world set in the aftermath of that epic series, we knew we had to give it some love.

In issue #2, Henry and Barry find themselves in the presence of the enigmatic Buzzard Clan, where they meet an unexpected chief who holds secrets to Henry’s past.

Meanwhile, Ghost Eyes and Isabelle are tracking the soul-stealing Hunter, but instead they find the mysterious Black Star Rangers!

What’s the scoop on SHADOW ROADS? The world is thinnest at The Crossroads, a mythical plane that serves as a doorway throughout the universe. It is here that a band of adventurers throughout the Wild West gather, brought together by Gord Cantrell and Abigail Redmayne with a singular purpose: to fight back against the creatures that would endanger the sanctity of all creation.

SHADOW ROADS is the set in the world that remains after the conclusion of Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt and Bill Crabtree’s critically-acclaimed series, The Sixth Gun.
