Signing from 11AM-1PM!

Hello Third Eye Faithful!
We are practically falling out of our chair with excitement as we type up this one, Third Eye Faithful.

In fact, this one is such a big deal, that we had to give you guys at least a month’s notice — so you can make sure you’ve got the day off to take part in this historic Third Eye signing! 🙂

Folks, I’ll just say it: GEORGE PEREZ is coming to Third Eye. That’s right: the legendary artist who helped co-create most of the Teen Titans (like Cyborg, Raven, Starfire, Deathstroke and more!), brought the Multiverse to life with CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, and helped us really, really hate to love Superboy Prime in FINAL CRISIS LEGION OF THREE WORLDS.

Perez is a true Titan (pun intended) in the world of comics, and his fingerprints have been felt on nearly every aspect of both the Marvel and DC Universes for decades.

Heck, the look and feel of most of the DCU’s most iconic characters, like Nightwing, is courtesy of Perez’s involvement.

So, when BOOM STUDIOS offered us the chance to host a signing event for George’s incredible new BOOM series SIRENS… we jumped so hard at it that we practically knocked ourselves cold hitting our heads on the roof!

So, Third Eye Faithful, here’s the thing: we’re counting on you guys to make this the BEST stop on George’s signing tour. He’s going to be hitting a ton of amazing comic shops nationwide in support of SIRENS, and he chose to make his DMV stop Third Eye for a reason — because you guys are AWESOME.

I know that many of you are long-time fans of the man, but I also know there’s some of you who may just be getting into comics — either way: you have to take this chance to meet a man who has truly defined the look and feel of modern age comics.

9081So, what’s SIRENS all about?

So, Perez is a man who needs no introduction: his legendary work on everything from THE AVENGERS to CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS to TEEN TITANS has made him a name that comic fans far and wide revere.

However, most folks don’t know that Perez has done some downright incredible creator-owned stuff over the years, and his upcoming new series from BOOM STUDIOS is very much in the vain of that, and we could not be more stoked about it, because George’s creator-owned stuff has always been some of our favorite!

Perez has a reputation for doing incredible work on strong female characters like WONDER WOMAN and SCARLET WITCH, so when we saw he’d be putting together a team of female heroes that he completely created, we knew it’d be amazing.

In this sci-fi adventure story that spans time and space, featuring a team of female heroes that kick butt across the universe, we’re given a cast of characters who harken back to iconic heroines like Princess Leia, Alien’s Ripley, Kill Bill’s Beatrix Kiddo, and Battlestar Galactica’s Starbuck.

As an intergalactic force enslaves planets across the galaxy, the legendary team known only as the Sirens must reunite to save the galaxy: but is that even possible when the Sirens themselves don’t even remember who they are?

And, the rest of the universe only remembers them as villains?

This six issue limited series delivers some of the best team-driven storytelling we’ve seen in a long time from a comic, and it’s all written and illustrated by Mr. George Perez!

9083Get your copy of the Third Eye Comics variant of SIRENS #1 and get it signed by GEORGE PEREZ on 9/25!

When Boom Studios first approached us about doing the signing for SIRENS, we knew we had to really do it up big, so we worked with them on making this incredible, and very limited variant cover of SIRENS #1 available exclusively at Third Eye!

Make sure you scoop a copy for only $3.99 at Third Eye, so that you can get it signed by George at our huge signing on 9/25!

 


crisis-onMust-Read Works by George Perez

It would take up most of your inbox if we listed off every amazing project that Perez has done over the years, so we’ve hand-picked a few that we have readily available and in stock now for you to check out, read up on, and get signed by Mr. Perez on Thursday 9/25/14!

The first one, of course, has gotta be CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, as this is not just one of Perez’s most iconic works, but also one of the most iconic, history-making comics.. ever!

This is the story that changed the DCU forever. A mysterious being known as the Anti-Monitor has begun a crusade across time to bring about the end of all existence.

As alternate earths are systematically destroyed, the Monitor quickly assembles a team of super-heroes from across time and space to battle his counterpart and stop the destruction.

DC’s greatest heroes including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Aquaman, and more assemble to stop the menace, but as they watch both the Flash and Supergirl die in battle, they begin to wonder if even all of the heroes in the world can stop this destructive force!

This is a HUGE milestone of a comic, and folks, if you’ve never read it, we cannot recommend it enough. Scoop yourself a copy of this great graphic novel, read this slab of awesome, and get it signed by George Perez on 9/25!


8983And, hey, one historic DC story means we gotta plug a historic Marvel story, and folks, it doesn’t get much more iconic than the one and only INFINITY GAUNTLET.

This is THE defining cosmic Marvel storyline, and with Thanos’s presence becoming more and more of a thing in Marvel’s cinematic universe — you know that this is a graphic novel that you GOTTA get signed by Mr. Perez on 9/25!

In the INFINITY GAUNTLET, it’s the Avengers, the New Warriors, the X-Men, and more against the omnipotent Eternal, THANOS.

The Mad Titan has become the most powerful being in the universe and enslavement or destruction may be the only choices he gives it!

Folks: it all began here, and Perez’s art on it is part of what helped make it so damn iconic!


8984

Snag the graphic novel, and get it signed by George on 9/25!

In this legendary highlight of the FINAL CRISIS saga, Perez helps turn Superboy Prime from an interesting villain into the kind of bad guy you hate to love, and love to hate — in other words: he made him pretty darn awesome!

In CRISIS OF THREE WORLDS, Geoff Johns and George Perez deliver the Crisis of the 31st Century as the Legion of Super-Heroes reaches out for help against a powerful foe they can’t beat alone.

From the moment SUPERMAN landed on Earth until the end of time, the Time Trapper has sought to erase Superman’s impact on the universe.

But, the Legion of Super-Heroes have always been there to stop the relentless villain.

Now, one Legion isn’t enough as the Time Trapper taps a twisted mirror image of the Boy of Steel from a parallel Earth long dead: SUPERBOY PRIME! Who will answer the Legion’s call for help?


8985

A must-read, and a great graphic novel to get signed by Perez on 9/25!

It’s twin threats to time and space as campaigns by Kang and the Crown coincide! In this now-classic AVENGERS story, George Perez brings the Avengers to life in a major way!

The Avengers fight the set-serving Squadron Supreme in a clash between Earths and head for the 19th Century to keep the West from getting wilder!

Continuity questions continue as Kang and Immortus mix it up!

 


8986A true AVENGERS classic, and a must for any Perez fan!

Many of you know George is an incredible artist, and he brings a lot of that to the NEW 52 Superman, but he’s also one hell of a great writer, and he really shined with his writing chops on this great run.

 

 

 

 


8987Collecting the first 7 issues of the NEW 52 SUPERMAN series, SUPERMAN VOL.1 WHAT PRICE TOMORROW is a great contemporary look at George’s stuff, and a must-have to get signed!

The first appearance of the TASKMASTER is only one of the many reasons why AVENGERS: HEART OF STONE is a must-have for any PEREZ fan.

In this graphci novel, collecting issues 188-196 and annual #9, we’re shown a cornucopia of classic Avengers action as Earth’s Mightiest Heroes travel to Russia to face the ELEMENTS OF DOOM, and then battle the WWII-era Arsenal robot, and learn it’s shocking ties to Iron Man’s family!

Meanwhile, an out-of-work Hawkeye takes a security job, and clashes with the vicious alien princess DEATHBIRD!

PLUS: the Avengers are called before Congress, battle the stone-faced Grey Gargoyle, and deal with the meddling machinations of government liasion Henry Peter Gyrich!


8988

And, folks: one word: TASKMASTER!

Another modern classic, if CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS established the multiverse, INFINITE CRISIS brought it into the 21st century for comic fans who may have missed the original CRISIS.

In this sequel to CRISIS, the OMAC robots are rampaging, magic is dying, villains are uniting, and a war is raging in the depths of space.

In the middle of it all, a critical moment has divided Earth’s three greatest heroes: Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

It’s the DCU’s darkest day, and long-lost heroes from the past have returned to make things right in the universe.. at any cost!


8989Heroes will live, heroes will die, and the DCU will never be the same again.

One of the BEST Hulk stories of all-time, HULK THE END, collects the now-classic HULK: FUTURE IMPERFECT, which GEORGE PEREZ brought to life in true, bombastic fashion!

In a nightmarish future Marvel Universe, the Hulk never dies, never surrenders, and is never cured. Instead, he has grown cold, and ruthless, and become a tyrant known as the MAESTRO. He’s murdered most of the Marvel Universe’s most iconic heroes, and only a Hulk from the past can bring an end to the reign of the Maestro.

 


8990A must-have, make sure you get this iconic piece of Hulk history signed by Perez!

Another example of Perez’s incredible modern day talents, WORLD’S FINEST VOL.1 LOST DAUGHTERS OF EARTH 2, collects the first 7 issues of the NEW 52 World’s Finest series, featuring incredible art by Mr. Perez.

Stranded on the main DCU Earth five years ago, Huntress and Power Girl of Earth 2 are forced to fight evil in strange new surroundings, all while trying to find their way home.

 

 


8991

In two tales, World’s Finest flashes back to how Huntress and Power Girl got to our Earth, and what they’ve been doing the past five years, and then back to the present where they fight for the fate of millions against the Irradiated Man!

As you can probably tell by now: George Perez has pretty much had his hands in nearly every major iconic moment in comic book history, and the now-classic BATMAN A DEATH IN THE FAMILY is no exception.

 

 

 


8992

In BATMAN A DEATH IN THE FAMILY, the classic tale of how current RED HOOD, and then ROBIN, Jason Todd, was brutally murdered is collected in one gorgeous volume! Snag a copy, and get it signed by Perez on 9/25!

Collecting the first five issues (1-5) of Wolfman and Perez’s incredible NEW TEEN TITANS run, as well as the redesigned Titans profile entries from the classic WHO’S WHO: Definitive Directory of the DCU, this graphic novel is the PERFECT thing to get signed for you huge TEEN TITANS fans!

The mysterious Titans member, Raven, has been battling her inner demons for some time now, but she can no longer hold the evil that is her father Trigon in check.

Now, the otherworldly demon has breached his dimensional prison, conquering the Earth — and Nightwing, Starfire, Cyborg, Changeling, and the rest of the Titans are mankind’s only hope of defeating him!
