This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye for Wednesday 11/20/19

Published November 18th, 2019

Posted in: ,

DARK CAPTAIN MARVEL makes her grand debut in THE LAST AVENGER Chapter 1 with CAPTAIN MARVEL #12 – do not miss out on this key moment in CAPTAIN MARVEL history!

One of the most exciting character changes since Angel became Arch-Angel, or Frank Castle was revealed to be the Cosmic Ghost Rider — DARK CAPTAIN MARVEL is the epitome of AWESOME, and we’re so stoked about this new story arc featuring the incredibly talented Lee Garbett on art!

We read this one — and the ending is a shocker, so trust us: you don’t want to sleep on this one if you’re a Marvel head!


Captain Marvel has fought off alien hordes. Rescued X-Men. Punched Thanos in the face. Literally saved the world.

She now faces her greatest challenge: kill the Avengers. Has one of the world’s most powerful heroes gone dark? But why?

And what does this mean for Carol…for the world? Life on earth will never be the same.

Kelly Thompson teams up with Eisner-nominated artist Lee Garbett for a brand-new arc – and a bold new direction!

Perfect jumping on point for one of the Marvel series that’s been picking up steam the fastest; much like IMMORTAL HULK and VENOM began really turning into must-reads, CAPTAIN MARVEL is following in that same path!

Wanna go back to the beginning? We’ve got issues 1-11 in stock to get you current, or we can jump you on with the first 12.

THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS takes center stage as one of the must-get HOSTILE TAKEOVER VILLAINS MONTH titles in BATMAN / SUPERMAN #4, featuring a special one-shot story focusing on a CRITICAL moment in the lead-up to DC’s big 2020 plans!

Do NOT sleep on BATMAN / SUPERMAN, as this picks up immediately after the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS mini-series, and is continuing the story as it leads to what is going to be the biggest Crisis the DC Universe has ever seen!

In this weeks BATMAN / SUPERMAN #4, even for those of you not following the series, the BATMAN WHO LAUGH takes over the title completely, and the story focuses on a CRITICAL moment for the character!

Even from prison, the Batman Who Laughs is staying two steps ahead of the Caped Crusader and the Man of Steel.

His plan to infect heroes and turn them into the Dark Multiverse versions of themselves is starting to build steam, with Shazam and others already succumbing to his evil toxin.

Batman and Superman are racing the clock to prevent the other three members of the Secret Six from being poisoned, but they realize they are too late when those three come looking for them instead-one of whom is a lot closer to Superman than expected and itching for a fight!

What’s the scoop on DC’s VILLAINS MONTH Hostile Takeover?

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!

The world of Sean Murphy’s WHITE KNIGHT gets further explored in a crucial new Black Label one-shot with BATMAN: White Knight Presents Von Freeze #1!

Holy crap: the dystopian, almost cyberpunk-esque Gotham City that Sean G. Murphy has been building with his WHITE KNIGHT and CURSE OF THE WHITE KNIGHT series has been wowing the hell out of us, and this weeks one-shot, focusing on the one and only Mr. Freeze looks to be one of the best parts of it yet!

In BATMAN WHITE KNIGHT PRESENTS VON FREEZE, the world of Batman: White Knight expands with this standalone tale!

As the Third Reich roars into power, the deep friendship and working relationship between the Baron von Fries and his research partner, Jacob Smithstein, is in crisis.

Ordered by Himmler to speed development of their cryotechnology in service of world domination, Smithstein is forced to go into hiding and compromise his moral code in order to save his wife and infant daughter, Nora, from persecution and certain death.

When the S.S. ramps up surveillance over the project, young Victor begins to question his father’s true allegiance.

Both families are driven toward an impossible choice and a sinister standoff, and Victor makes a pact with Smithstein that will ripple through generations.
