PISCES #1 Launch Signing!

Celebrate the launch of new IMAGE series PISCES and meet RAT QUEENS writer KURTIS WIEBE and SHELTERED artist JOHNNIE CHRISTMAS

We’ve got some great creator guests this year for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, and we cannot wait to give you guys the opportunity to get your books signed by these superstar talents!

First off, we’re super stoked to be hosting the official release party for the incredible new ongoing IMAGE COMICS series, PISCES, by KURTIS WIEBE of RAT QUEENS fame, and JOHNNIE CHRISTMAS of SHELTERED fame!

We’re big fans of both Kurtis and Johnnie’s work, and when we saw the two were collaborating on something new, we knew we had to get them to Third Eye for a big signing!

In PISCES, former fighter pilot Dillon Carpenter found everything he wanted when he returned from the Vietnam War. A loving partner; a dream career training with NASA to travel through space; and soon, he will learn, a prime candidacy for a secret mission, one that will forever change the world: FIRST CONTACT.

But as Dillon prepares, his war trauma returns and he’s haunted by dark visions of his future! There is but one constant; the voice whispering from the stars.

A tale of sci-fi fueled psychological body horror — PISCES is going to be one of the most exciting new IMAGE releases of 2015, we can promise you that!

ratqueenstpbAnd, if we’re talking about Kurtis, we can’t NOT talk about one of our favorite comics by the man, RAT QUEENS!

We’ve been totally loving the heck out of this fantastic series, and any chances we get to extoll it’s virtues, well, we’re gonna take it!

Who are the RAT QUEENS? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens for hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit.

It’s also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief.

This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that reads like Joss Whedon’s BUFFY meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack!

We’ll have plenty of copies of the first graphic novel of RAT QUEENS in stock to get you guys started, collecting issues 1-5 for only $9.99!

shelteredtp1And, just as awesome and loved by us as Rat Queens, is the incredible survival horror series, SHELTERED! And, oh hey, you know that super cool book PISCES that we talked about up above? Well, that’s by the one and only Johnnie Christmas, who many of you guys know from SHELTERED!

In SHELTERED, the men and women of SAFE HAVEN have been preparing for any and all end-of-world scenarios for years!

However, their bunkers, weapons, and training can’t save them from one threat they never could have expected: their own children!

This is a compelling take on the survival horror story, and takes us into a PRE-APOCALYPTIC tale of terror, rather than a POST-APOCALYPTIC one!

We’ll have plenty of copies of SHELTERED VOL.1 and VOL.2 in stock for you to check out and get signed by Johnnie on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!

COPRA2COPRA ROUND TWO Release Signing with Creator MICHEL FIFFE

Meet the writer of one of the hottest indie books on the stands, as well as the writer behind ALL NEW ULTIMATES!

We’ve been HUGE fans of Michel Fiffe’s incredible indie smash hit COPRA, and have been dying for a chance to get him into Third Eye so he can sign you guys’s copies, and so we can turn on those of you who’re not hip to COPRA already onto one of the most fun and innovative new comics on the stands!

What’s the scoop on COPRA? This incredible gem of a series is like a unique blend of classic SUICIDE SQUAD-style superhero action and the surrealist madness of comics like SWEET TOOTH and MIND MGMT.

In COPRA, they’re ugly, they’re mean, and up until today, they’ve always been loyal. So, when one of their own betrays them, the men and women of COPRA have no choice but to turn their nightmarish skills back on everyone who ever looked at them funny!

copratpb1Wanna start reading? Snag the first graphic novel, collecting issues 1-6 of Michel Fiffe’s super-hero revenge series which focuses on the exploits of the COPRA team, a group of super-powered vigilantes and mercenaries betrayed by one of their own and hunted by the US government.

And, then on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 5/2/15, we’ll have plenty of copies of ROUND TWO available, which collects the next big story arc of COPRA!

In COPRA Round Two, genocide ain’t a pretty thing to see. But, there’s no time to mourn when your face is at the edge of the gun.

Scared, desperate, and alone, Copra’s gonna clear their name in a brutal reckoning with the forces that screwed them over and sold them out. Will hate be enough?

COPRA is an unmatched juggernaut of self-published, superhero violence that grabs a hold and doesn’t let go!

ultimatesGet your ALL NEW ULTIMATES comics signed as well!

Don’t forget, Third Eye Faithful, Michel Fiffe is also the writer behind the sleeper hit of the Marvel Universe: ALL NEW ULTIMATES, and he’ll be signing your copies of ALL NEW ULTIMATES as well!

In ALL NEW ULTIMATES, the next generation of Ultimates are here! Spider-Man, Black Widow, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell, Cloak and Dagger unite to tackle the vicious, rampant crime wave overtaking Hell’s Kitchen!

But the young Ultimates are put to the test as they try to survive their first mission: going head-to-head with the city’s most ruthless gang, the Serpent Skulls, led by Diamondback!

Meanwhile detective Brigid O’Reilly and her anti-gang unit are on the hunt for a serial mask killer called Scourge!

As Jessica Drew adjusts to the mantle of Black Widow, Spider-Man falls for a villainess, and Bombshell’s life is changed by tragedy, super-powered street gangs and psychopaths!

We’ll have plenty of all the single issues, as well as the first graphic novel collecting 1-6 of ALL NEW ULTIMATES, on hand and available for the signing!

jemOther Great Signings Featured on FCBD!

In addition to the above great signings, we’ll be featuring the colorist of the hit new JEM & THE HOLOGRAMS series in our ALL AGES tent!

So, if you’re feeling nostalgic, be sure to pop in and get your copies of JEM signed!

 

 

 

We’ll also have local superstar KEVIN HOCK signing copies of his hit indiefantasy series, FANTASY KILLER!

Kevin’s a stellar talent, and one heck of a good guy, and we’re pumped to be hosting him to sign copies of his dark thriller, FANTASY KILLER, at Third Eye for FCBD!
