The missing link between THANOS WINS and INFINITY WARS is revealed in the THANOS LEGACY one-shot from DONNY CATES & GERRY DUGGAN

THANOS WINS and VENOM writer DONNY CATES returns to the MAD TITAN in this crucial one-shot tying into INFINITY WARS!
We’re HUGE fans of writer Donny Cates and his work on THANOS WINS and VENOM, and we’re also big fans of writer Gerry Duggan and his killer INFINITY WARS saga, so we’re pretty stoked to see the two teaming up to explore the events that bridge THANOS WINS to INFINITY WARS before Thanos’s fate was revealed.
How did Thanos’ journey back from the future lead to the events of INFINITY WARS PRIME? Now it can be told!

Get the killer THANOS LEGACY #1 George Perez variant for just $4.99 cover price!

There’s a ton of killer alternate covers coming down the pipeline for THANOS LEGACY, and this one featuring art by INFINITY GAUNTLET all-star GEORGE PEREZ is a MUST-HAVE!
Make sure you scoop a copy for your collection this week at Third Eye!

Third Eye Faithful, if you haven’t read THANOS WINS, you gotta check it out. What’s the scoop on THANOS WINS?

One of our absolute favorite reads of this year has been the incredible Donny Cates THANOS run featuring a future version of THANOS returning to present day Marvel pleading for present Thanos’s help.. after killing the entire Marvel Universe.
Throw in the debut of COSMIC GHOST RIDER (who we don’t want to spoil the identity of, but we promise: it’s rad), and one hell of an amazing story — and this is one of the best graphic novels you can buy this summer!
Ask the most powerful beings in the Marvel Universe how they fear the universe will end, and in their most honest moment, they will answer with two words: “Thanos wins.”
And now, it looks as though that disturbing thought is about to become a horrific reality!
See what happens when the Mad Titan gets his way!
Thanos journeys to the end of time and his moment of complete victory…and still isn’t happy with what he sees. Witness the Mad Titan’s greatest glory – and ultimate shame! And no matter what form Thanos’ victory takes, is there any way that anyone – or anything – can possibly survive?
Featuring the Silver Surfer and introducing the all-new cosmic Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider!

The Vertigo revival continues with the launch of the all new ongoing DREAMING #1 this Wednesday!

One of the most beloved highlights of the Vertigo era in the ’90s was the incredible SANDMAN spin-off series, THE DREAMING, which was all about.. well, the Dreaming — aka the kingdom of Dreams.
From the upheaval of THE SANDMAN UNIVERSE #1 rises THE DREAMING-a kingdom in chaos.
There is a place where stories are born.
Today its walls lie slashed and bleeding.
Dream has abandoned his realm, and until he is found, its residents must protect its broken borders alone.
But the most senior storysmiths are tormented by invasive secrets, the warden Lucien is doubting his own mind-and beyond the gates something horrific waits with tooth and talon.
Only Dora, the monstress, finds opportunity in madness, stealing dreams for the highest bidder. But she has no idea how deep the danger lies.
Meanwhile, in Dream’s gallery, something new is growing…
Wanna get on board with the very first of the Vertigo revival? We have plenty of SANDMAN UNIVERSE #1 in stock to get you up to speed!

COVER #1 delivers the next big creator-owned masterpiece from Brian Michael Bendis (DAREDEVIL, SUPERMAN, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, POWERS, ALIAS, and more)!!

We’re loving the incredible burst of creativity coming from comics legend BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS as he absolutely kicks butt on his first year at DC Comics, and we’re super pumped about his next big release, COVER!
Years in the making, from the award-winning team of Brian Michael Bendis and multimedia sensation David Mack, comes a brand-new graphic novel experience.
And it’s all kind of based on a true story. Sort of…
Deep in the American intelligence community, someone realizes that comic book creators, who travel all over the world to sell their wares, might make the perfect cover for operatives in the dangerous, topsy-turvy world of intelligence and counterintelligence…and that’s when all hell breaks loose.
This is the story of the time the world of comics and the world of international spywork smashed together-with unexpected results!
Artist David Mack, follows his Emmy nominated work on Jessica Jones, and his critically acclaimed video work for Dashboard Confessionals and Amanda Palmer, brings another completely unique vision to this driving comedic spy story that is also a beautiful Valentine to all those creators who sit alone and make beautiful stories.

BORDER TOWN #1 kicks off an all new ongoing DC Vertigo series that has us super stoked!! 

We really think DC has it right this time with their relaunch of the Vertigo imprint, which had been better known in the past for mature-themed stories that fell outside the realm of normal DCU superhero stuff, and Third Eye Faithful, as huge fans of Vertigo growing up.. we’re loving the new stuff that’s coming out of Vertigo this Summer!
Don’t miss the start of this all-new ongoing Vertigo series by writer Eric M. Esquivel (Gregory Graves, Ricanstruction) and artist Ramon Villalobos (Nighthawk, America).
When a crack in the border between worlds releases an army of monsters from Mexican folklore, the residents of Devil’s Fork, AZ, blame the ensuing weirdness-the shared nightmares, the otherworldly radio transmissions, the mysterious goat mutilations-on “God-dang illegals.” With racial tensions supernaturally charged, it’s up to new kid in town Frank Dominguez and a motley crew of high school misfits to discover what’s really going on in this town torn between worlds.

For a year he has walked the Young Kingdoms, under the distant gaze of his protector, Arioch.
