ABSOLUTE CARNAGE #1 kicks off one of the most highly anticipated Marvel storylines of 2019

Still not reading the awesomeness that is Donny Cates & Ryan Stegman’s ABSOLUTE CARNAGE? Get on board with the ABSOLUTE CARNAGE event!

We’ve been loving what Marvel has going in 2019, and one of the most anticipated reads for us has gotta be ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, which is the explosive culmination of all the cool stuff that Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman began in their VENOM run with Knull, and more!

Now, the Cult of Carnage goes into full swing, and we could not be more stoked! The Lovecraftian horror take that has become a major part of the expanded symbiote mythos that Cates and Stegman have created is in full effect in this new series, and we’re loving every second of it!

What’s the scoop on ABSOLUTE CARNAGE? Encompassing every character who’s ever worn a symbiote or been affected by the symbiotes of the Marvel Universe will feel the tendrils of ABSOLUTE CARNAGE!

From stars like Eddie Brock, Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and more to more obscure symbiotes like Scream — this book will be tying together everything in a major way, and judging from the quality of what we’ve already seen in Donny and Ryan’s amazing VENOM run – it’s going to be big!

After turning Venom’s world upside down a year ago, DONNY CATES and RYAN STEGMAN are about to put the Sinister Symbiote through hell again, only this time CARNAGE has come calling, and everyone who’s ever worn a symbiote is dead in his sights!

He’s skirted the periphery of the Marvel Universe for months, but Cletus Kasady at last stands poised to make his grand return to New York in a blistering 60-PAGE story… and he wants to paint the town red!

HOUSE OF X #2 follows up the blockbuster awesomeness of issue 1 this Wednesday!!

We gotta tell ya: Marvel has lightning in a bottle with HOUSE OF X, and we’re so darn pumped to get our hands on issue #2 this week as the story continues to amp up!

In HOUSE OF X #2, Learn the truth about one of the X-Men’s closest allies…and then begin the fight for the future of mutantkind!

Superstar writer Jonathan Hickman (AVENGERS, SECRET WARS, FANTASTIC FOUR) continues reshaping the X-Men’s world with Marvel Young Gun artist Pepe Larraz (EXTERMINATION, AVENGERS)!

What’s the scoop on HOUSE OF X? In the vein of milestone moments for X-MEN like GIANT SIZE X-MEN #1 and X-MEN #1 (the Claremont / Lee collaboration), HOUSE OF X and POWER OF X reduce the X-MEN line down to just two primary books, both of which written by Jonathan Hickman.

While the mysteries behind what’s actually going down in HOUSE OF X are too damn good for us to spoil here (trust us: you’re gonna wanna read and see these unfold in person) — we’ll say this: by the time you finish issue #1, your view of the X-MEN and their place in the Marvel Universe will have taken some drastic twists and turns, and left you with your jaw on the floor!

This is the definition of history-making comics, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re so darn excited to share these moments with you as they happen!

So, where do things begin? The fun starts in HOUSE OF X #1, where we see how since the release of Uncanny X-Men #1, there have been four seminal moments in the history of the X-Men. Giant-Sized X-Men. X-Men. Age of Apocalypse. New X-Men.

Four iconic series that introduced a new era for Marvel’s mutants and revolutionized the X-Men.

In House of X, Charles Xavier reveals his master plan for mutantkind…one that will bring mutants out of the shadow of mankind and into the light once more.

Need issue 1? We’ve got copies in stock to hook you up!

Get the exclusive variant covers to HOUSE OF X #2 including the next of the DECADES covers featuring iconic costumes of the founding X-MEN!!

There’s a ton of great variants for HOUSE OF X, but the DECADE variants featuring iconic incarnations of the most important X-MEN throughout history are our favorite!

Make sure you snag yourself a copy of this awesome one featuring JEAN GREY this week!

BATMAN #76 *CITY OF BANE CHAPTER 2* continues Tom King’s final arc on the DARK KNIGHT and delivers the biggest BATMAN story in ages!

If there’s one thing we’ve been loving, it’s Tom King’s incredible BATMAN run, and when we saw that Chapter 2 – issue #76 — was due out this week, we knew we had to shout it out!

In BATMAN #76, “City of Bane” continues! Bane has taken over Gotham City, and Batman is nowhere to be found.

At least, not a Batman anyone recognizes.

Flashpoint Batman is now patrolling the city, dispensing a violent brand of justice and taking out rogue villains who haven’t yet signed on with Bane.

It’s all building to a rebellion among the bad guys who don’t want to play along— and distrust in those who do!

Meanwhile, a surprising ally has come to Bruce Wayne’s aid, nursing him back to health so that he can get back to his city.

Wanna get on board? We’ve got issue 75, featuring chapter 1, in stock now to get you current!

Get the BATMAN #76 Cover B DEL OTTO Variant this week for cover price while supplies last!

We LOVE the work of GABRIELE DELL OTTO, and this incredible variant to #76 is a must-have!

And as a lifetime of horror movies has taught us, there’s something strange going on in this island village.

DIE #6 continues the red hot new IMAGE comics series that reads like Stephen King’s IT meets Jumanji!!

One of the best new books in the last couple years from IMAGE has gotta be DIE, from WICKED + DIVINE writer Kieron Gillen!

Imagine this: Dungeons & Dragons, coming-of-age horror ala STEPHEN KING’S IT, and otherworldly travel into childhood games like Jumanji — that’s DIE!

A new arc begins this week in issue #6!

Forget escaping Die-half of our heroes can’t even escape the remains of shattered Glass Town.

Is there any way out? Of course there is. It’s just whether or not you can pay the price.

Start reading DIE with DIE TP VOL.1 for just $9.99 this week at Third Eye!

DIE is a blast! DIE is a pitch-black fantasy where a group of forty-something adults have to deal with the returning, unearthly horror they only just survived as teenage role-players.

If KIERON’s in a rush, he describes it as “Goth Jumanji”, but that’s only the tip of this critically acclaimed obsidian iceberg.

FUTURE FOUNDATION #1 kicks off a brand new ongoing series with the concepts and characters HOUSE OF X writer Jonathan Hickman brought to life a few years back!!

We’re huge Hickman fans, and one of our favorite things that came out of his FANTASTIC FOUR run was the FUTURE FOUNDATION idea!

Now, Marvel is returning to that world, and we’re stoked!

When the Richards family is called back to Earth to be the Fantastic Four again, they left behind the Future Foundation – a think tank of the most brilliant young minds in the universe – with one mission: to find the pieces of and rebuild their friend Molecule Man.

But that’s proved harder than imagined as this crew of young geniuses, Atlanteans, Mutants, Moloids and androids have run into every problem in the Multiverse.

Now, with the leadership of Alex and Julie Power and a little extra firepower from guest professor Yondu Udonta, the team will undergo their most dangerous mission yet – a PRISON BREAK!

Jeremy Whitley (UNSTOPPABLE WASP) and Will Robson (GREAT LAKES AVENGERS; Spawn) take the Future Foundation on a heart-pounding journey across time and space!
