The biggest comic of 2019 arrives in a gorgeous hardcover collection with HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X!

Third Eye Faithful: whether you’re a die-hard weekly reader who has all the single issues but wants to own this massive tome of comic goodness, or someone who waits for trade — HOUSE OF X is a must-have for the bookshelf this holiday season.

Seriously: superstar Jonathan Hickman delivers one of the most exciting X-Men stories we’ve seen in over two decades as he completely redefines the world of Marvel’s merry mutants, and sets up the landscape for Marvel’s X-Universe!

And, this gorgeous hardcover collects the entirety of both HOUSE OF X & POWERS OF X in sequential reading order, to deliver the ultimate way to enjoy this epic story.

In HOUSE OF X / POWERS OF X, it’s time to face the future – and fear the future – as superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (INFINITY, NEW AVENGERS, FANTASTIC FOUR) changes everything for the X-Men!

In HOUSE OF X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind – one that will bring mutants out of humankind’s shadow and into the light once more!

Meanwhile, POWERS OF X reveals mutantkind’s secret history, changing the way you will look at every X-Men story before and after.

But as Xavier sows the seeds of the past, the X-Men’s future blossoms into trouble for all of mutantdom. Stories intertwine on an epic scale as Jonathan Hickman reshapes the X-Men’s past, present and future!

Frank Miller returns to the world of DARK KNIGHT RETURNS with the all new DARK KNIGHT RETURNS: GOLDEN CHILD #1 one-shot — and it’s a MUST-READ!!!!!

If there’s one thing we can safely say is a certainty in comics: just about all things Frank Miller are amazing, and EVERYTHING that’s Frank Miller + Batman is over-the-top amazing.

So, as you can imagine: we’re pretty darn stoked about the upcoming DARK KNIGHT RETURNS: GOLDEN CHILD one-shot that features rising superstar RAFAEL GRAMPA (remember MESMO DELIVERY – that ultra-violent slice of awesome from years back? We’re so pumped to see Rafael doing art again, as we loved the kinetic awesomeness of Mesmo!), and returns Miller to the DARK KNIGHT RETURNS universe!

It’s been three years since the events of Dark Knight III: The Master Race.

Lara has spent the time learning to be more human, and Carrie Kelley has been growing into her new role as Batwoman.

But a terrifying evil has returned to Gotham City, and Lara and Carrie must team up to stop this growing threat-and they have a secret weapon.

Young Jonathan Kent, “the golden child,” has a power inside of him unlike anything the world has ever seen, and it’s about to be unleashed… 

Dark Knight Returns: The Golden Child is Frank Miller’s triumphant return to the world of the Dark Knight and joining him is the superstar artist Rafael Grampá, the mastermind behind the groundbreaking Mesmo Delivery.

Following work in advertising and film, this incredible collaboration marks Grampá’s first comics work in six years, bringing his extraordinary detail and storytelling to the Dark Knight saga, resulting in a Dark Knight story like nothing you’ve ever seen before.

We’ve been so impressed with Boom’s output in 2019, and they’ve been crushing it with release after release, whether it’s their incredible licensed work on series like FIREFLY & BUFFY & POWER RANGERS or their amazing new creator-driven work like SOMETHING IS KILLING THE CHILDREN & ONCE AND FUTURE, they’re quickly becoming THE spot for cutting edge comics, and RED MOTHER looks to continue the trend!

After losing her eye and the man she loves in a brutal mugging, Daisy McDonough is left trying to put the pieces of her life back together.

Just when she begins to think she can heal- move on, she begins to see strange things through her new prosthetic eye.

And The Red Mother sees her in return.

Continuing BOOM! Studios’ string of successes, The Red Mother follows Faithless, Once & Future, and Something is Killing the Children for a new original series that examines the dangers that hide in plain sight – and the consequences of digging beneath the surface to find the truth underneath.

UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #2 delivers an excellent follow up issue to the hottest IMAGE series of 2019!

Third Eye Faithful: we know that many of you, just like us, fell in love with the incredible new series, UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY, and we know that you’re probably just as stoked as we are to get your hands on issue #2!

Well, fear not: it’s here, and it’s AWESOME!

In UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY #2, as the team goes on the run from the deadly Destiny Man, the focus shifts to Charlotte’s brother, Daniel. Until this expedition, he was the only person on Earth to successfully infiltrate the black box that is the United States.

What secrets did Daniel learn that might keep the team alive, and what did they cost him?

What’s the scoop on UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY?  Journey into the near future, and an unknown nation that was once the United States of America-a land that’s become shrouded in mystery after walling itself off from the rest of the world without explanation over thirty years ago. When a team seeking a cure for a global pandemic breaches U.S. borders, they quickly find themselves in a struggle to survive this strange and deadly lost continent!

This is an all new ongoing series that takes a very near-future science fiction kind of look at the world around us, and tells one hell of a compelling story in the process.

If you’re a fan of Scott & Charles other work, then you know these guys can write, and trust us: they’re doing some of their best work yet in this new series, but on top of that, there’s some absolutely jawbreaking artwork courtesy of superstar Giuseppe Camuncoli, and it brings the book to life in a majestic way!
