9148Roche Limit #1 arrives this Wednesday from Image Comics, delivering another incredible science fiction epic from the Premiere Publisher!

This week IMAGE drops another INCREDIBLE hit series on us, and folks, we gotta tell you: do not sleep on ROCHE LIMIT. This book is GOOD.

Twenty years after promising to lead the human race into the stars, billionaire Langford Skaargard’s dream of cosmic exploration is no more.

Roche Limit, a colony situated on the cusp of a mysterious energy anomaly, is a melting pot of crime and terrible secrets.

When Bekkah Hudson goes missing, the search to find her will plunge her sister and a cadre of the colony’s underworld figures into an odyssey that reveals a grim future for mankind.

Blending 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY with the sci-fi cyberpunk noir of BLADE RUNNER, ROCHE LIMIT is an incredible new ongoing IMAGE series that will appeal to fans of EAST OF WEST, BLACK SCIENCE, and LOW.

The storytelling and artwork are both top notch, and the book has all the makings of another smash IMAGE hit.

9152Aliens: Fire and Stone #1 brings us back to the world of Xenomorphs this week!

You guys know us: we’re HUGE fans of ALIENS here at Third Eye, and when we saw that Dark Horse was going to be going full force into the world of ALIENS and PROMETHEUS, we knew we’d be in for a treat.

During a vicious xenomorph outbreak, terraforming engineer Derrick Russell leads a desperate group of survivors onto a rickety mining vessel.

They hope to escape the creatures overrunning their colony — but, they’ll face horrors both in space and on the strange planet they crash onto.

This is a great jumping on point for anyone who’s been wanting to read ALIENS comics, and it also does a great job of both providing new and original story while tying into both PROMETHEUS and ALIENS.

9153Batman: Gordon of Gotham arrives in graphic novel this Wednesday, collecting the cult classic Gordon of Gotham & Batman: GCPD Series!

A huge inspiration on the upcoming GOTHAM series!

We’re totally stoked about GOTHAM coming to NETFLIX, and cannot wait to start watching the show, and we’re even more stoked that it’s going to help cast the spotlight on some great, forgotten BATMAN stories like this week’s GORDON OF GOTHAM.

This graphic novel collects all of the major crime noir-charged stories of the late ’90s, featuring not just Jim Gordon, but many of the other unique and interesting police officers of the GCPD.

This served as a precursor to the now classic GOTHAM CENTRAL series, and folks, trust us: it’s damn good stuff.

In this volume, you get GORDON OF GOTHAM 1-4, BATMAN: GCPD 1-4, and BATMAN: GORDON’S LAW 1-4.

Over 12 issues of pure GOTHAM CITY Noir!

A must-have, and a must-read; this influential set of stories played a big role in the direction of the upcoming GOTHAM series.

9156Rick Remender’s incredible new Image series, Low, continues with this week’s Low #3

Folks, if you’re a fan of epic IMAGE series like SAGA, then you have gotta be reading LOW. LOW is truly one of the most promising, and exciting new IMAGE ongoing series of the year, and we are so pumped for it, three issues strong!

In an effort to save mankind, Stel Kane embarks to do what hasn’t been done in a millennia: walk on the Earth’s surface.

But, before she can rise from the depths of the ocean, she must first help her son rise from the suffocating darkness in which he wallows.

What’s LOW all about? In the far distant future, the sun’s premature expansion has irradiated Earth, sending humanity to the lowest depths of the seas, hidden within radiation-shielded cities, while probes scour the universe for inhabitable worlds to relocate to.

After tens of thousands of years, a single probe returns, crashing on Earth’s surface, a now-alien place no human has seen for many millennia.

This aquatic sci-fi / fantasy tale, following two teams from the last remaining cities undersea as they race to the most unexpected alien world of all: the surface of Earth.

9157Third Eye favorite, Revival, continues with this week’s Revival Volume 4: Escape to Wisconsin trade paperback

REVIVAL has been one of our favorite IMAGE series since it’s launch, and it just continues to get better and better with each subsequent issue.

It’s also the kind of series that reads very well in trade paperback, so we know for many of you, there’s reason to celebrate when a new volume of REVIVAL hits.

We don’t blame ya — it rules!

What’s the scoop on REVIVAL? For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life.

Now, it’s up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them.

Now, as Dana closes in on the bizarre murderer of her Reviver sister, she’s swept up in a conspiracy that will bring her from rural Wisconsin to NYC!

A must-read for fans of WALKING DEAD, LOCKE & KEY and MORNING GLORIES, Revival is a sublime blend of real world crime drama and supernatural horror that makes for some of the best comics on the stands.

Imagine FARGO by way of AMERICAN HORROR STORY and that sums up REVIVAL perfectly.

Charlie was a helper dog, and he was good at it. Now, he and his friends Rover and Red, must escape the bloody city and find their way in this strange master-less new world.

9164Boom studio debuts a killer new drama with Butterfly #1 this Wednesday, blending “House of Cards” & “True Detective” into one thrilling new read!

We loved BUTTERFLY for the same reason we love shows like HOUSE OF CARDS and TRUE DETECTIVE: it explores deeply flawed and morally complex characters against the backdrop of the espionage genre.

Exploring the true nature of the people who devote their lives to covert ops and the deceit, solitude, and violence that follows them into it.

Featuring rising star writer Marguerite Bennett, BUTTERFLY explores the dark world of spycraft, and we love it.

When her cover is blown and she is set up for a murder she did not commit, she is unknowingly led to her father’s doorstep, a man who she thought died 20 years ago.

Codenamed Nightingail, her father was once a member of the very same Project Delta, a spy in the violent aftermath of the Cold War, and believes the yare behind her set-up.

Trained to trust nothing and no one, Butterfly must decide whether to seek answers with the Project, or believe the man who betrayed her years ago.
