A MASSIVE ANNOUNCEMENT ON FCBD’s EVE & A SPECIAL TOKEN OF OUR APPRECIATION FOR THE 1ST 100 IN LINE! BE A PART OF THIRD EYE HISTORY THIS FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
First off, before we go any further, we gotta let you in on a secret: this is going to be the biggest FREE COMIC BOOK DAY we’ve ever held.
Why? Well, we’ve got a HUGE announcement we’ll be making the night be fore FCBD — something so huge that we wanted to wait until we could share it with all of you.
We’ll be announcing it in person first to everyone who’s lined up and camping out for the event, and then shortly after, will be announcing online.
We’d love it if you joined us to take part in this special moment, and for the 1st 100 folks who’re lined up — they’re going to get a VERY cool surprise that ties into said announcement… just for being there in person to share the fun with us!
After 9 years of doing this, there’s one thing that always remains the same for us: the overwhelming joy and community we feel with each and every single one of you, not just on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, but on every single day of the year that you come see us at Third Eye.
Whether you’ve been with us for all 9 years, or you’ve just discovered us – we cannot tell you how much we appreciate you and all of your support!
And, trust us: the announcement we’ve got waiting for you is pretty darn big — and has a lot to do with everything we said above. 🙂
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is Saturday 5/6/17!
50 different FREE Comics to choose from!
There’s so much awesome stuff on the way for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY this year, Third Eye Faithful, with Marvel leading the way with their huge comeback event: SECRET EMPIRE!
We gotta tell you — if there’s just one FCBD title you grab this year, make it SECRET EMPIRE. It truly is shaping up to be one of the most truly exciting new Marvel storylines we’ve seen in ages, and the path that it’s going to put the Marvel Universe on is HUGE.
It’s also a fantastic place to either start reading Marvel Universe stuff for the 1st time, OR for those of you who may have fallen out over the last couple of years to jump back in.
In the FCBD Secret Empire one-shot, an essential prelude to SECRET EMPIRE #1, the entire Marvel Universe must unite as Captain America….. yes, Steve Rogers himself, has staged a hostile takeover of the United States and claimed it in the name of the sinister HYDRA group.
It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a classic Marvel storyline where the good guys are fighting the bad guys, and SECRET EMPIRE is definitely shaping up to be that.
And, from what we’re hearing — SECRET EMPIRE paves the way and sets the stage for Marvel’s mysterious GENERATIONS storyline, which (and this is strictly our own speculation here) looks to be staging Marvel’s very own take on a lot of the cool stuff that DC did with DC REBIRTH!
It all starts with SECRET EMPIRE, so make sure you jump on board this FREE COMIC BOOK DAY with the SECRET EMPIRE one-shot!

CREATOR SIGNINGS with local Maryland comic superstars PHILLIP K. JOHNSON (WARLORDS OF APPALACHIA, SMOKETOWN), Scott Van Domelenand (SMOKETOWN), Dustin Mollick (SMOKETOWN), and CHARLES DOWD (LILITH DARK!) – Signing 9AM-2PM.
We’re all about supporting local talent at Third Eye, and we couldn’t think of any better time to showcase some of our favorites than FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
We’ll have PHILLIP K. JOHNSON, who has done killer work with BOOM STUDIOS on series like WARLORDS OF APPALACHIA and LAST SONS OF AMERICA, and is now wowing us with his crime drama SMOKETOWN, along with his co-creators on SMOKETOWN SCOTT VAN DOMELENAND and DUSTIN MOLLICK!
We love the series LILITH DARK, and are totally pumped to be hosting Charles to sign copies for you on FCBD (which is only a few days after the book officially releases)!
Lilith Dark has no time for princess stuff; she’s far too busy fighting giant monsters and capturing unicorns… or at least that’s how she imagines things. But what if these imaginary beasties, creatures, and monsters were actually real? What then? Printed on nostalgic newsprint with a glossy cover!
Lilith Dark is the first in a new line of comics that is totally hitting us up in the nostalgia part of our brain with a return to newsprint paperstock for comics! We loooove the concept, and are super pumped to be supporting it!
So, we LOVE Star Wars here at Third Eye, and well, any chance we get to hang out with a bunch of Stormtroopers, well, hot diggity, we’re going to take it!
So, joining us from 9AM-1PM at Third Eye, we’ll have the Old Line Garrison 501st Legion Stormtroopers taking photos and hanging out!
One of our favorite parts of FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is seeing kids getting into comics, and having a blast, and just like we’ve done before, we’ll be hosting a super fun dedicated FCBD Kids Tent loaded with kids FREE COMIC BOOK DAY books, and featuring our special guest: face-painting artist extraordinaire Mr. Corey!
Get your face painted, grab some free comics, and have some fun with us!
