JUSTICE LEAGUE #27 kicks off YEAR OF THE VILLAIN this week, alongside DEATHSTROKE #45 & HARLEY QUINN #63!

One of the biggest things to sweep across the DC Universe begins this Wednesday, as Lex Luthor starts to build an army of the DC Universe’s most notorious bad guys!
We’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful, the stuff that DC Comics has planned with YEAR OF THE VILLAIN, and everything that will be spinning out of it — is HUGE — and the mayhem all begins this week in JUSTICE LEAGUE #27 with the first of the highly anticipated “OFFER” prelude tie-ins. Leading the charge this week is JUSTICE LEAGUE #27, which sort of acts as the anchor book for YEAR OF THE VILLAIN, as we’re shown the first offer being made to… a not-so-bad guy? That’s right, the Martian Manhunter is the first to get approached by Luthor… and why he pays the price, we’re gonna find out! Eons ago, the Monitor, the Anti-Monitor and the World Forger stopped the rise of Perpetua—but can they overcome billions of years of mistrust to work together and do it again?

Continuing THE OFFER, DEATHSTROKE #45, shows us that in the wake of Slade Wilson’s death, a new Deathstroke has vowed to complete his last, unfinished assignment. But the master assassin Shado has plans of her own, looking to step in for the late, great World’s Greatest Assassin and usurp his place in villainous hierarchy. Meanwhile, Rose Wilson discovers the identity of the person responsible for her father’s death. Can her brother, Jericho, stop her from seeking vengeance? Also, in this issue, Slade Wilson’s son Jericho accepts Lex Luthor’s offer of power—but he’s determined to use it as a force for good…so why is Lex smiling?

And, then rounding out the 3 OFFER tie-ins this week, HARLEY QUINN #63, the final trials of Harley Quinn have begun…and the stakes have never been higher! Will Harley succeed in becoming the Angel of Retribution? Or will she fall short, only to suffer the same fate as all those before her? Plus, a mysterious new comic by M. Clatterbuck appears…in which Lex Luthor makes Harley an exciting offer!


Don’t forget to collect the special Cover B Villain Portrait Variants for THE OFFER!

In celebration of the awesomeness of DC Bringing on the Bad Guys with THE OFFER, they’re doing a special COVER B variant for each issue which features a killer close-up portrait of one of the iconic bad guys featured in the crossover!
Make sure you snag each one for these three books this week for normal cover price!

SEA OF STARS #1 debuts from superstar Jason Aaron (War of the Realms, Thor, Conan the Barbarian, Southern Bastards, Scalped) on IMAGE COMICS!!

We’re huge fans of writer Jason Aaron, and when we saw he had a brand new creator-owned book on the way this week with SEA OF STARS, we knew we had to seriously give it a shout out!

Being a space trucker sounds like a cool job, but in reality, it can be boring as hell.
So when recently widowed Gil gets a long-haul gig across the universe, he figures it’s safe enough to bring his young son Kadyn along for the ride-that is, until their “big rig” gets bitten in half by a gigantic Space Leviathan!

Now separated from his son-with a breached suit that’s venting oxygen at an alarming rate-Gil must defy the odds and stay alive long enough to rescue Kadyn.

But meanwhile, Kadyn seems to be getting all the help he needs from a talking Space Monkey riding a Space Dolphin… or maybe it’s the strange powers he’s suddenly manifesting?!

From the writing duo of JASON AARON (SOUTHERN BASTARDS, Thor) and DENNIS HALLUM (Cloak & Dagger, Vader: Dark Visions), with dazzling art by STEPHEN GREEN (Hellboy and the B.P.R.D.) and cosmic colors by RICO RENZI (Spider-Gwen), comes a brand-new science fiction series with all the scope and heart of the The Neverending Story crossed with the imaginative weirdness of Miyazaki-an intense, galaxy-spanning adventure that’s suitable for fans of all ages!

Jason Aaron & Marvel’s CONAN revival arrives in TPB with CONAN THE BARBARIAN TP VOL.1 Life and Death of Conan!

We have to tell you – Jason Aaron has been KILLING it on CONAN, and delivering some of the best CONAN comics we’ve seen since Kurt Busiek and Cary Nord’s epic run nearly 20 years ago!
Hard-hitting, brutal to the very last drop, and in-your-face, Aaron and artist Mahmud Asrar are a dream team on Conan, as they bring the Barbarian to life in a way that is truly fitting of his return to Marvel Comics!
In CONAN TP VOL.1, the greatest sword-and-sorcery hero of all returns to Marvel! From an age undreamed…hither came Conan the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.
Conan’s travels have brought him to the far reaches of the unknown, from his birthplace in Cimmeria to the kingdom of Aquilonia and all in between.
But as his fighting prowess lets him carve his way through life, so too does it attract the forces of death!
And few are more deadly than the Crimson Witch. Robert E. Howard’s legendary barbarian stars in an all-new ages-spanning saga as the destiny of Conan – and King Conan – are forever changed!
Collecting CONAN THE BARBARIAN (2019) #1-6.


LOIS LANE #1 kicks off the 12-issue maxi series from BATWOMAN & Wonder Woman writer GREG RUCKA!

We love DC books like BATWOMAN, THE QUESTION, and more that conjure up conspiracy-heavy storylines, and an almost noir-style, and this weeks LOIS LANE, which ties into the events of LEVIATHAN, is definitely one of those kind of books!

In LOIS LANE #1, on the road and out of Metropolis—and carrying a secret that could disrupt Superman’s life—Lois Lane embarks on a harrowing journey to uncover a threat to her husband and a plot that reaches the highest levels of international power brokers and world leaders.

Critically acclaimed and best-selling author Greg Rucka and master storyteller Mike Perkins team up for a tale of conspiracy, intrigue and murder that pushes even Lois to her limits.

THE ADVENTURE ZONE GN VOL.2 delivers the next installment of the ADVENTURE ZONE graphic novels!

We love the podcast THE ADVENTURE ZONE, so there’s probably no surprise that we’re super about the new graphic novels from the folks behind it!

Hot on the heels of The Adventure Zone: Here There Be Gerblins, the smash hit graphic novel that launched the series, Murder on the Rockport Limited picks up the saga where volume 1 left off.

Both books are based on The Adventure Zone, a tabletop RPG comedy podcast with downloads numbering in the tens of millions and an army of passionately devoted fans. We rejoin hero-adjacent sort-of-comrades-in-arms Taako, Magnus, and Merle on a wild careen through a D&D railroad murder mystery.

This installment has a little of everything: a genius child detective, an axe-wielding professional wrestler, a surly wizard, cursed magical artifacts, and a pair of meat monsters. You know, the usual things you find on a train.

Wanna get on board? We’ve got volume 1 in stock to get you current!

The ICONIC SILVER SURFER: PARABLE story from comic legend MOEBIUS arrives in hardcover this Wednesday in a glorious oversized edition !

One of our all-time favorite comic artists at Third Eye is the legendary MOEBIUS, so when we saw that the SILVER SURFER story he did way back when with STAN LEE was getting reissued in a gorgeous, oversized hardcover — we were like: we’re so in!

One of the all-time great stories of the Silver Surfer, by the legendary Stan “The Man” Lee and visionary French artist Jean Giraud, A.K.A. Moebius – as stunning now as it was 30 years ago!

A star falls to Earth. Panic grips the planet as mankind prepares for its inevitable end. But the star is a ship, and inside is a god. All he asks for is adoration.

Overcome with relief, man rushes to obey. There is only one voice of dissent that will not be silenced: the Silver Surfer, who recognizes the “god” as his former master!

But why has Galactus encouraged mankind to live down to his darkest nature? The Sentinel of the Spaceways stars in a bewitching tale of man’s folly and nobility.
