FAMILY TREE #1 delivers a must-read new horror / modern fantasy series from GIDEON FALLS writer JEFF LEMIRE!

One of our favorite comic writers of all-time at Third Eye has got to be the one and only JEFF LEMIRE, who’s currently wowing us all with GIDEON FALLS, and has in the past blown us away with DESCENDER, SWEET TOOTH, and many more.

His newest series drops this week, and it looks incredible!

When an eight-year-old girl literally begins to transform into a tree, her single mom, troubled brother, and possibly insane grandfather embark on a bizarre and heart-wrenching odyssey across the back roads of America in a desperate search for a way to cure her horrifying transformation before it’s too late.

But the farther they get from home, the more forces threaten to tear the family apart as fanatical cults, mercenaries, and tabloid Paparazzi close in, determined to destroy the girl—or use her for their own ends.

A new genre-defying series written by New York Times bestselling author JEFF LEMIRE (GIDEON FALLS, ASCENDER) and illustrated by acclaimed artist PHIL HESTER (Shipwreck, Green Arrow), FAMILY TREE combines mystery, action, and horror into an epic story about the lengths a mother will go to in order to keep her children safe.

The newest Green Lantern takes center-stage & makes her first appearance in FAR SECTOR #1 – do not miss on this killer new breakout hit from DC Comics!

This one’s a big deal – it’s the 1st appearance of a new Green Lantern in the DC Universe, and the debut of Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein!

A brand new maxiseries that brings a new layer to the Green Lantern saga, Far Sector is set to take the DC Universe by surprise in a big way!

In issue #1, N.K. Jemisin, the acclaimed, award-winning author of The Broken Earth and Inheritance science fiction trilogies, makes her comic book debut with bestselling Naomi artist Jamal Campbell as they thrust you into a stunning sci-fi murder mystery on the other side of the universe! 


For the past six months, newly chosen Green Lantern Sojourner “Jo” Mullein has been protecting the City Enduring, a massive metropolis of 20 billion people. The city has maintained peace for over 500 years by stripping its citizens of their ability to feel.

As a result, violent crime is virtually unheard of, and murder is nonexistent. 


But that’s all about to change in this new maxiseries that gives a DC Young Animal spin to the legacy of the Green Lanterns!

BRING ON THE BAD GUYS – DC SPOTLIGHTS ITS VILLAINS THIS NOVEMBER AS YEAR OF THE VILLAIN REACHES ITS ENDPOINT — AND SOMETHING BIGGER EMERGES — COLLECT ALL THE ACETATE VILLAIN SPOTLIGHT COVERS!
DETECTIVE COMICS #1015 features the 1st appearance of a new Bat-Villain: Mrs. Freeze!

So, we’ve been telling ya: DC has something big brewing with their current YEAR OF THE VILLAIN story arc — and, it’s all gonna start coming together with this months DCU titles, which all share a common theme: one-shot stories tied into the current continuity and spotlighting major DC Universe villains related to the titles they’re in.

And, there’s also one more nifty unifying theme here: DC has incredible new acetate covers for each issue that literally transform the book before your eyes, as when you flip it open it reveals the actual title’s hero underneath the “takeover” cover featuring the villain.

If there’s one thing DC Comics does well: it’s shared universe storytelling, and we wish we could share what we know about where all this is going, but we’re going to tell you right now: by the end of this month – you’re going to be on your way to being all in on the DCU again, especially if the Dark Multiverse and all the awesomeness from METAL is your thing!

This week, DETECTIVE COMICS #1015 leads the charge, for centuries children have been told to be careful about what they wish for, and after years of yearning for his beloved to return, Mr. Freeze finally gets it. But frozen hearts don’t melt easily, and after years in cryostasis, Nora Fries is the ultimate ice queen.

Gotham and Victor Fries will never be the same again.

BLACK STARS ABOVE #1 debuts from VAULT COMICS (MONEY SHOT, PLOT) this Wednesday, and delivers chilling Lovecraftian horror that fans of True Detective Season 1, Neonomicon, and more will love!

We’re loving the recent output of VAULT COMICS with hits like THE PLOT & MONEY SHOT, and we’re super pumped about the next big release from them with this weeks BLACK STARS ABOVE #1!

A young fur trapper flees her overbearing family only to get lost in a dreamlike winter wilderness that harbours a cosmic threat.


The year is 1887 and a storm brews. Eulalie Dubois has spent her entire life tending to her family’s trapline, isolated from the world.

A chance at freedom comes in the form of a parcel that needs delivering to a nameless town north of the wilderness.

Little does Eulalie know, something sinister hides in those woods and it yearns for what she carries. 

Imagine the eerie Lovecraftian horror of comics like NEONOMICON or TV series like TRUE DETECTIVE Season 1 and blend it with historical fiction like Manifest Destiny or movies like THE REVENANT — and that sums up BLACK STARS ABOVE well!

Joe Hill’s new DC Horror imprint, HILL HOUSE, continues the awesomeness that began with BASKETFUL OF HEADS #1 in another new ongoing series, with DOLLHOUSE FAMILY #1!

We REALLY dug the debut of the HILL HOUSE books with last weeks BASKETFUL OF HEADS, and when we saw there was another series launching alongside it with DOLLHOUSE FAMILY, we knew we had to shout it out!

There’s a number of reasons we dig it, but one of the coolest reasons? The team behind Vertigo classics like LUCIFER & THE UNWRITTEN (Mike Carey & Peter Gross) are handling the creative duties, and they’ve proven before that they can handle comic book horror / fantasy perfectly.

On Alice’s sixth birthday, her dying great-aunt sent her the birthday gift she didn’t know she always wanted: a big, beautiful 19th-century dollhouse, complete with a family of antique dolls.

In no time at all, the dollhouse isn’t just Alice’s favorite toy…it’s her whole world.

And soon, young Alice learns she can enter the house to visit a new group of friends, straight out of a heartwarming children’s novel: the Dollhouse family.

But while the Dollhouse family welcome her with open arms, in the real world, her family life is becoming much more complicated…and deep within the Dollhouse’s twisting halls, the black room waits, with an offer to Alice.

The house can fix all this, the black room says.

All she has to do is say the words… 


Longtime collaborators Mike Carey and Peter Gross (Lucifer, The Unwritten) are joined by Vince Locke (The Sandman), to bring their most horrifying vision yet to Hill House Comics-a story that echoes into centuries past, into Alice’s tormented future, and into the beating heart of the madness that makes up our world…literally.

Cable and X-23 join Kwannon for a personal mission that could jeopardize all Mutantkind!

What’s the scoop on all this X-Awesomeness? Featuring the superstar dream team of Jonathan Hickman & Leinil Yu – this is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and will be the biggest X-Men since Claremont and Jim Lee’s X-MEN #1 way back in the ’90s!

THE BOYS VOL.5 OMNIBUS arrives this week, delivering the next slab of Garth Ennis’s epic, hyper-violent take on superheroes gone wrong!

We’ve been loving the TV version of THE BOYS, and we’re even more pumped that it’s helping bring the spotlight on one of our favorite comic series of all times!

All the pieces are falling into place, for the Boys as well as their most mortal enemies.

The long-dreaded superhuman conflict is on its way. But first there are secrets still to be uncovered: like the story of the team’s first encounter with supergroup The Seven, and while shockwaves from that disastrous meeting that still reverberate today. Hughie, meanwhile, discovers his comrades’ hidden history, as their original leader Colonel Grey Mallory takes him through sixty years of the filthiest black operations imaginable.

And finally, with good and bad guys teetering on the brink, a shadowy force sets events in motion that will push even Butcher over the edge. The Boys, vol 9: The Big Ride collects issues 48-59 of the New York Times Best-Selling series by Garth Ennis, Darick Robertson, Russ Braun and John McCrea, and features all of the covers by Robertson!

Her could have been a very different man. Billy Butcher, leader of The Boys, once had a chance at another life entirely – when the love of a good woman pulled him aside from his dreadful path of violence and despair.

This is the story of Billy and Becky, told by the man himself: from the backstreets of London’s East End to the carnage of the Falklands War, from the heights of love to the depths of tragedy. And when he’s done, he’ll be ready … to finish things once and for all. 

Wanna get caught up on the series? We’ve got THE BOYS OMNIBUS vol.1-4 in stock to get you current!

DRAGON BALL VISUAL HISTORY is the ULTIMATE Dragon Ball coffee table book – a must-have!

Featuring stunning full-color artwork, exclusive creator commentary and rarely seen sketches, Dragon Ball: A Visual History is the definitive journey through the artwork of one of the most influential and popular manga series of all time, Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball.

FOLKLORDS #1 delivers a killer new mini-series from BOOM STUDIOS (SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN, ONCE & FUTURE) that fans of DIE, MIDDLEWEST & FABLES WILL LOVE!

From Narnia to Harry Potter, we’ve seen our hero leave the real world for a fantasy world-but in Ansel’s world of monsters and magic he’s haunted by visions of our world with tailored suits and modern technology!

Ansel embarks on his Quest to find the mysterious Folklords, hoping they can explain his visions…but looking for the Folklords is punishable by death.

What will Ansel risk to find out about the world he has never truly belonged in? 

Fans of DIE, MIDDLEWEST, AND FABLES, will dig the heck out of this killer new series!

UNNATURAL creator MIRKA ANDOLFOS delivers UNSACRED #1 this Wednesday, and it’s a blast!

We’re huge fans of the extraordinary talent MIRKA ANDOLFO, who many of you know from Image’s UNNATURAL, so when she had a new series on the way — we knew we had to shout it out!

Angelina, a voluptuous angel, and Damiano, a mischievous devil, are madly in love. But, while she does not intend to give in to temptation, he would very much like to… This is the tale of their bizarre and spicy daily life! 

A sex-positive–and incredibly funny–slice of life…full of angels, devils and gags!

HELLBOY creator MIKE MIGNOLA returns to the world of Mr. Higgins with OUR ENCOUNTERS WITH EVIL featuring Professor Meinhardt & Knox! A monster-hunting good-time from the master of monster comics!

Mr. Higgins was just the beginning!

Follow Professor J.T. Meinhardt and Mr. Knox as they continue their pursuit of ne’er-do-well creatures of the night!

Backed by the dauntless vampire hunter Ms. Mary Van Sloan, the heroes of Mr. Higgins Comes Home pursue vampires, werewolves, and other horrors that even they are hard-put to name or explain.

The only thing that’s for certain is that the strange truths these adventurers uncover are seldom what they seem!

As huge fans of HELLBOY, and pretty much all things Mignola-verse, we’re stoked to see more new Mignola stuff!

Garth Ennis (Preacher, Punisher MAX, the BOYS) returns to the Punisher with PUNISHER: SOVIET #1 this Wednesday, featuring Ennis’s CROSSED co-creator / artist Jacen Burrows!

We’re huge fans of ANYTIME that Garth Ennis hops on the Punisher, but, when you pair him up with the one and only Jacen Burrows, who he did CROSSED with — well you know you’re in for something special!

A dozen Russian mobsters lie dead at the Punisher’s feet and he wasn’t the one who pulled the trigger.

If you know Frank Castle, you know this doesn’t necessarily set his mind at ease. Who is in New York City decimating the Russian mob and can it be long before they come into conflict with Frank?

As a PUNISHER MAX story – this is kind of unique; the PUNISHER MAX stuff is always set in a real-world where there’s no super-powers, and the only Marvel characters who do come through are ones that could actually exist in the real world (i.e Nick Fury, Kingpin, etc.).

And, even more importantly: there’s no rules at MAX, so the books typically carry strong language, and Ennis’s trademark hyper-violent storytelling!
