DC’s TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE one-shots continue with one of the biggest yet: TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE: INFINITE CRISIS! If you loved DARK NIGHTS METAL — you need to be reading these books!

Third Eye Faithful, we’ve told you again and again, we’re huge fans of the world that’s been created with DC’s DARK NIGHTS METAL event, and we’re very excited about where things are going as we gear up for THE ANTI-CRISIS!

DC’s been releasing one-shots that visit different timelines and corners of the DARK MULTIVERSE, to showcase every dark alternate reality that could’ve come to be, and then some.

In this weeks TALES FROM THE DARK MULTIVERSE, it’s INFINITE CRISIS!

DC’s mega-event “Infinite Crisis” saw the destruction of the Trinity, the rise of Alexander Luthor and Superboy-Prime, and the rebirth of the Multiverse…but it all started with Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, who saw it all coming and died with secrets that could’ve saved the world.

But…things happened differently in the Dark Multiverse!

Not only does Blue Beetle survive- he thrives!

And after killing Maxwell Lord himself, Ted sets off a chain of events that irreversibly alters the lives of the Justice League and his best friend, Booster Gold.

In trying to prevent a crisis, Blue Beetle becomes the Crisis…and the Dark Multiverse will never be the same.

Wanna catch up on the other DARK MULTIVERSE one-shots? We’ve got ’em all in stock to get you current!

The all new ongoing JOHN CONSTANTINE HELLBLAZER series finally returns the iconic anti-hero to his VERTIGO roots in issue #1 this Wednesday!

We really dug the SANDMAN UNIVERSE HELLBLAZER one-shot (in stock now) that reintroduced Constantine back into dark, and dreamy world of Neil Gaiman’s SANDMAN Universe, so you better believe we’re pumped about the all new ongoing series kicking off this week!

John Constantine is back in London, back to his old tricks-and just in time, as things have become very dark indeed in his old stomping grounds.

A small-time gang lord has found himself dealing with a big-time outbreak of supernatural weirdness…and without any allies to call on and nothing left to call his own, John doesn’t have much choice about taking a paycheck from one of London’s worst, or accepting the help of one of the gang lord’s would-be foot soldiers.

But what should be an open-and-shut exorcism turns out to be nothing but…and the author of this madness may just be getting started on their terrible masterpiece! 


The original Constantine is back in this series from Si Spurrier (The Dreaming) and Aaron Campbell (Infidel), with nothing to his name but decades of bad memories and an unearned second chance.

How, exactly, will he squander it? There’s only one way to find out…

DAWN OF X: NEW MUTANTS #2 continues the breakout hit of the DAWN OF X line-up — do not sleep on this great book!

One of our absolute favorites of the new DAWN OF X X-Titles is NEW MUTANTS, as writer JONATHAN HICKMAN (HOUSE OF X) delivers some of the best darn team storytelling we’ve seen in a minute!

In issue #2, the New Mutants set out to find their missing member and share the good news…a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!

What’s the scoop on NEW MUTANTS? In NEW MUTANTS, The classic New Mutants (Sunspot, Wolfsbane, Mirage, Karma, Magik, and Cypher) get together with a few new friends (Chamber, Mondo) to seek out their missing member and share the good news… a mission that takes them into space alongside the Starjammers!

What’s up with all this X-Awesomeness? 

Quite possibly, one of the most exciting things we’ve seen to come down the pipeline for Marvel in the last decade, has been HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X!

These two huge series have delivered some of the most exciting, and invigorating takes on Marvel’s merry mutants that we’ve seen in decades!

And, now, as HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X near their conclusions in their respective issue #6s, the road to what lays ahead for the X-Men is clear: the DAWN OF X!

That’s right: Jonathan Hickman’s far from done with his take on the world of the X-MEN, and is starting off the first season of X-Awesomeness right with DAWN OF X this Fall!

HOUSE OF X and POWERS OF X reinvented and reimagined just what the X-MEN meant to the Marvel Universe, and the DAWN OF X initiative? This is where Hickman takes the groundwork he’s built in those two mini-series, and begins taking us into the biggest golden age of X-Men comics yet!

DAWN OF X is the official banner that covers 6 all new ongoing series, two of which directly written by Hickman, and all 6 directly overseen and guided by Hickman, that take the world of the X-MEN and make it the most exciting it’s been since the days of Claremont and Lee!
