We’re HUGE fans of rising star writer, TOM KING, who has done incredible work on the series GRAYSON, as well as totally wowed us with his recent work on DC cult favorite OMEGA MEN, and new breakout ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT MARVEL hit VISION — so, when we saw that Tom had not just one but TWO books coming out… and, on the same day — well, we knew we had to do something special to celebrate!
On top of that, Tom’s a local talent, and if there’s one thing we love to do here at Third Eye, it’s support our hometown creators!
So, read on, and find out why SHERIFF OF BABYLON and ROBIN WAR are two MUST-READ new series that you have GOTTA get signed by the main man behind both at a very special DAY-1 Signing event we’re hosting!
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 SHERIFF OF BABYLON about?
Baghdad, 2003. Florida police officer-turned-military contractor, Chris Henry is tasked with training a new Iraqi police force.
When one of his trainees ends up dead, Chris is forced to team up with Nassir, the last remaining cop in Baghdad.
Pulling the strings to bring them together is the mysterious Sofia, an American-educated Iraqi who has returned to take control of the city’s criminal underworld.
This stunning new mini-series delivers a wartime crime drama that’s unlike anything we’ve seen done in comics. You know the chills you got when you first read CRIMINAL? You know the way your jaw hit the floor upon finishing that first arc of SOUTHERN BASTARDS? Sheriff of Babylon delivers the same kind of feeling — a truly unique and fascinating genre comes to comics this DECEMBER, and we cannot recommend it enough!
It’s also no secret that Tom’s real-life experience as a CIA operations officer probably helps lend an unremarkable amount of awesomeness to this new series!
ROBIN WAR BEGINS! A true return to the classic BAT-CROSSOVERS like NO MAN’S LAND, BATTLE FOR THE COWL, and CATACLYSM arrives this DECEMBER!
DC Comics is quietly putting together a very interesting new direction for their line, and we’re LOVING it.
It began with SUPERMAN LOIS AND CLARK, continued with the awesomeness that is TITANS HUNT, and now, the return to form keeps on as we’re given a classic BAT-CROSSOVER that harkens back to fan-favorites like NO MAN’S LAND, BATTLE FOR THE COWL, CATACLYSM and more!
In ROBIN WAR, it’s Robins vs. the GOTHAM CITY PD!
And, hey… it’s also: ROBINS VS. ROBINS. ROBINS VS. BATMAN. And, heck, Robins vs. the Court of Owls, even!
Damian Wayne returns to Gotham, and he’s not happy.
There are kids all over the city calling themselves Robin, Bruce Wayne is no longer Batman, and the GOTHAM CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT, led by the new, armored up BATMAN, is cracking down on anybody wearing the “R.”
And, things ONLY get worse when RED HOOD, RED ROBIN, and GRAYSON all return to GOTHAM!

Tom has quickly become one of our favorite writers here at Third Eye, and he’s been doing some really, really impressive work. I’m telling you right now — this is a creator to watch! I’m getting flashbacks of when Scott Snyder was wowing us with those early issues of AMERICAN VAMPIRE and his cult favorite IRON MAN NOIR mini-series — Tom’s a real talent to follow, the dude can write some killer comics!
OK, so, when we saw Tom was going to be bringing THE VISION to the ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT MARVEL line-up, we knew it had to have something awesome going for it — and folks, it totally does.
This is a fresh, unique, and fascinating take on a character who we really weren’t too sure could carry his own book.. until we read issue #1!
The Vision wants to be human, and what’s more human than family?
He goes to the laboratory where he was created, where Ultron molded him into a weapon, where he first rebelled against his given destiny, where he first imagined that he could be more, that he could be good, that he could be a man, a normal, ordinary man. And he builds them.
A wife, Virginia. Two teenage twins, Viv and Vin. They look like him. They have his powers. They share his grandest ambition or perhaps obsession: the unrelenting need to be ordinary. Behold The Visions!
They’re the family next door, and they have the power to kill us all. What could possibly go wrong?
We’ve got plenty of copies of VISION #1 in stock now to get you hooked up so you can get your’s signed by Tom!
The first full story arc of the all new Grayson series is collected in Grayson HC VOL.1 Agents of Spyral!
A thrilling new chapter of Dick Grayson’s life begins in this title collecting the start of his new hit series.
It’s a super-spy thriller that will shock you and prove one thing: You may think you know Nightwing – but you don’t know Dick!
As he digs into the mysterious organization known as SPYRAL and learns more about his new partner, Helena Bertinelli, how can Dick keep track of all the lies?
Or will he fall apart once he can no longer tell fact from fiction?
Plus: Dick Grayson goes toe-to-toe with the Midnighter! Collects GRAYSON #1-4, a story from SECRET ORIGINS #7 and GRAYSON: FUTRUES END #1.
As huge NIGHTWING fans, this series has us HOOKED!
Not only will we have copies of the hardcover available for you to get signed, but also copies of the single issues of Grayson, #1 – current, to get signed as well!
DCYOU: The OMEGA MEN delivers a very fresh, very cool take on a DC cult classic in this new series!
The Omega Men are back in an all-new series!
They’ve murdered White Lantern Kyle Rayner and now, the universe wants them to pay!
Who are these intergalactic criminals – and is there more to their actions than meets the eye?
OMEGA MEN has quickly become a true cult favorite among fans, with it’s trippy, almost DOOM PATROL-like vibe, and we’re totally loving it — we’ve got all the current issues in stock to get you caught up and get ’em signed by Tom this December!
