SMASH HORROR COMICS HIT SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN ARRIVES IN TRADE PAPERBACK WITH SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN VOL.1 THIS WEDNESDAY!
One of the most exciting new releases of 2019 had to have been BATMAN writer James Tynion IV’s SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, which delivers one of the best darn horror comics riffs we’ve read in ages!
When the children of Archer’s Peak begin to go missing, everything seems hopeless. The few children that return alive have terrible stories – impossible details of terrifying creatures that live in the shadows.
Their only hope of finding and eliminating the threat is the arrival of a mysterious stranger, one who believes the children and claims to be the only one who sees what they can see.
Her name is Erica Slaughter. She kills monsters. That is all she does, and she bears the cost because it must be done.

Read one of the most classic BATMAN tales ever with BATMAN: HUSH TPB!
Third Eye Faithful: you know you can never have enough BATMAN, and we wanted to spotlight one of the best BATMAN tales ever with BATMAN: HUSH by superstar Jim Lee!
In this classic tale, Batman sets out to learn the identity of the mysterious villain known as Hush.
But Batman ends up facing the most intense case of his life as secrets from his past flood into the present!
Guest-starring the Dark Knight’s greatest allies and enemies, this collection presents BATMAN #608-619, a six-page story from Wizard #0 and a two-page origin story that originally appeared at dccomics.com in a new edition with a new cover by superstar artist Jim Lee!
HELL ARISEN – the road to JOKER WAR and DEATH METAL begins here!
Third Eye Faithful: one of the biggest events of recent memory was DC’s HELL ARISEN, which showcases the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, and paves the road to two massive DC storylines: DEATH METAL and JOKER WAR!
What’s the hook on this series?
DC’s “Year of the Villain” begins its sinister conclusion!
Lex Luthor has brought Perpetua back from her cosmic grave and restored her power!
Now the Multiverse lives in fear that she might wipe out all existence. The only thing that could stop her are the forces of the Dark Multiverse- which means it’s Luthor’s mission to defeat the Batman Who Laughs!
But if Batman and Superman couldn’t stop him, what chance does Luthor stand?
Spinning out of the end of the “Justice/ Doom War” in Justice League #38 and the conclusion of the epic “Infected” arc from Batman/Superman #5, DC’s two top villains face off in a battle royal-and the fate of all reality hangs in the balance!
Tom King and Mitch Gerads just wowed you with STRANGE ADVENTURES — but did you read their incredible 2018 work: MISTER MIRACLE? Find out why this rules so hard with the graphic novel!
Tom King and Mitch Gerads craft a story that combines a charming, very human element with the epic scale and scope of the entirety of the Fourth World, New Genesis, and Apokolips, and everything in between.
From capturing the core of each of the New Gods, while also introducing new layers to each of them — he manages to do something that many have tried in the last few years: he’s made the amazing world of Jack Kirby’s FOURTH WORLD accessible, awesome, and downright fun to read for the first time since the original Kirby stuff of yesteryear.
What’s the scoop on this one? Scott Free is the greatest escape artist who ever lived. So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former Female Fury known as Big Barda.
Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques.
He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.
You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough? Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick-except one.
He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.
