What’s a KEEP COMICS WEIRD signing event? Third Eye Faithful, if there’s one thing that we think needs to be celebrated in the fullest is the fact that comics are a truly unique medium where you can do just about anything.

The raw creativity, and pure imagination that can only be found in comics is really special, and it remains the last form of entertainment that hasn’t been completely processed and formulated to the degree that many other have.

And, we’re not only happy about that, but we’re proud of that, and proud to be a part of it!

Whenever we host one of our in-store events that really celebrates big, crazy ideas that could only be told in comics — we’ll be adding the banner of it being a KEEP COMICS WEIRD signing, where we’ll be giving out special KEEP COMICS WEIRD badges, and other cool swag!

The output of indie comics upstart studio BLACK MASK totally embodies the ethos of what KEEP COMICS WEIRD is all about: it’s unique, it’s fresh, it’s cutting edge, and it’s the kind of storytelling that you could find being born in the pages of comic books.

Just like trend-setters like STRAY BULLETS, CRIMINAL, and TRANSMETROPOLITAN fused traditional genres of weird fiction like noir and science fiction with modern ideas, BLACK MASK is doing the same thing with killer books like WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, YOUNG TERRORISTS, and now 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK!

dayone1A Third Eye DAY ONE Signing Event!

What’s a DAY ONE Signing Event? Simply put: it’s when we host a creator to launch a title on the same day of release that the book comes out.

This means that not only are you getting it in your hands, and reading it the day it comes out — but, you’re also sharing the experience with tons of other Third Eye Faithful — and, getting the chance to Instagram and tweet the heck out of your signed copies to the rest of the world. 🙂

Our DAY ONE signing events have a more intimate vibe, where you’re able to spend a little more time asking questions of your favorite creators, and getting to share your excitement for their books!

What’s 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK all about? 

4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK is one of our most anticipated new releases of 2016, and Third Eye Faithful, by the time you finish hearing what we have to say about it, it’s going to be one of your’s as well!

This killer new series from WE CAN NEVER GO HOME writer MATTHEW ROSENBERG and LAZARUS inker TYLER BOSS delivers the tale of 11-year old Paige and her weirdo friends who have a pretty big problem: a gang of ex-cons that need her dad’s help on a heist… the problem is those ex-cons are total morons.

If Paige wants to keep her dad out of trouble, she’s going to have to pull of the heist herself.

Imagine if Wes Anderson remade Reservoir Dogs, 4KWIAB is a darkly humorous story about friendship, growing up, Dungeons & Dragons, puking, grand larceny and family.

Trust us, it’s awesome, and you need it in your life.

Other Projects by Matt & Tyler!

So, many of you may already be well aware, but Matthew Rosenberg is also the writer of last year’s indie mega-hit WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, a comic that took us all by storm here at Third Eye, and we could not get enough of.

Now available in graphic novel for just 9.99, WE CAN NEVER GO HOME is the stunning story of two teenagers, a mixtape, a stolen car, a fully loaded .45 pistol, strange abilities, dead drug dealers, and their money.

A dark and modern story about getting lost and finding yourself on the backroads of America.

Imagine X-MEN meets Quentin Tarantino’s TRUE ROMANCE.

Never read it? We’ve got the back issues and the graphic novel with issues 1-5 in stock now to get you up to speed for just $9.99, so you can get ’em signed!

Folks, the art on 4KWIAB is AWESOME, and by the time this series hits issue #2, everyone’s going to be talking about Tyler Boss’s killer style.

And, guess what: Tyler also provided the totally excellent inks for the hit IMAGE series LAZARUS, which we know many of you are big fans of.

Never read LAZARUS? So, here’s the scoop: in the future, banks control everything, as opposed to governments, and the rich and powerful have agents that do all the things they’d never want to do.

Meet Forever Carlyle, the Lazarus of the Carlyle Family. This is her story.

Snag the first trade for $9.99 and get it signed by Tyler at our 4KWIAB signing event!
