This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 1/23/13

MARVEL NOW CONTINUES WITH TWO NEW MAJOR ONGOINGS THIS WEEK! FIRST UP:YOUNG AVENGERS #1 BY JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY writer KIERON GILLEN! 

Get your copy signed this Saturday by REVIVAL artist MIKE NORTON!

Out of all the new MARVEL NOW releases hitting in 2013, I have to say: I think YOUNG AVENGERS #1 is one that I’m most excited about.

I’ve been a fan of the YOUNG AVENGERS since the original series by ALLEN HEINBERG and JIMMY CHEUNG back in the day, and have been waiting for them to get the kind of marquee treatment they deserve.

This week’s YOUNG AVENGERS #1 looks to be doing that in a major way, as JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY writer KIERON GILLEN pairs up with artists JAMIE MCKELVIE and MIKE NORTON to deliver one of the raddest takes we’ve seen on the YOUNG AVENGERS since the original series back in the day.

For those of you who’ve never read the characters, we gotta tell you: this is fresh stuff. This is interesting, cutting edge 21st century comics storytelling with strong characters that’ll grow on you.

Young Avengers is the kinda MARVEL book that you need to be reading if you’re a major fan of series like SAGA, MORNING GLORIES or AVENGERS ARENA. It’s the kind of new, and fresh take on the MARVEL UNIVERSE that really captivates us as readers, and we dig it.

Legacy isn’t a dirty word — but it is an irrelevant one. It’s not important what our parents did. It matters what WE do. Someone has to save the world. You’re someone. Do the math. The critically acclaimed writing of Kieron Gillen, who turned JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY into a major cult favorite featuring the exploits of KID LOKI have reinvented the teen superhero comic for the 21st century, uniting Wiccan, Hulkling, and Hawkeye with Loki, Marvel Boy, and Ms. America.

No pressure. Young Avengers is as NOW! as the air in your lungs, and twice as vital. It’s the book that serves up the hype, and then lives up to it tenfold.

Heck, just having Gillen writing KID LOKI again is pretty damn awesome, but, the book as a whole is fantastic.

Folks: do not miss out on the next great Marvel sleeper hit. You know you jumped onto HAWKEYE late, you know you jumped onto DAREDEVIL late; don’t make the same mistake with YOUNG AVENGERS. We’re telling you right now: this is going to be one of the best books of 2013.

PLUS: there’s a freakin’ awesome variant cover by SCOTT PILGRIM creator BRYAN LEE O’MALLEY, as seen below:

THE ANSWER #1 — PURE PULP HERO MADNESS FROM “AVENGERS ARENA” & “CABLE AND X-FORCE” writer DENNIS HOPELESS and “REVIVAL” artist MIKE NORTON
Meet both creators this Saturday at Third Eye for our ANSWER Launch Party!
Devin McKenzie is an insomniac librarian with a knack for solving puzzles. The ANSWER! is a masked crime fighter with a giant exclamation point on his face. Aside from a penchant for late nights, they share nothing in common.. until both become embroiled in a deadly mystery surrounding a sinister motivational speaker.
Folks, this one really caught our eyes when it was originally solicted, and it interested us so much after reading the initial advance pages, that we decided we HAD to get the creators out here for a trademark Third Eye launch party.
THE ANSWER is kinetic, pulp hero goodness in the vein of HELLBOY, MADMAN, LOBSTER JOHNSON, and more, as it combines a sleek modern approach to the classic superhero genre.
This Saturday, we’ll be having a big signing for THE ANSWER #1, where writer DENNIS HOPELESS (AVENGERS ARENA & CABLE AND X-FORCE) and artist MIKE NORTON (REVIVAL, YOUNG AVENGERS) will be signing copies of the book, as well as their other projects.

JUSTICE LEAGUE #16 *THRONE OF ATLANTIS PT 3* ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY CONTINUING GEOFF JOHNS’S KILLER AQUAMAN / JL CROSSOVER
The THRONE OF ATLANTIS has once again put both JUSTICE LEAGUE and AQUAMAN at the top of our reading lists, as GEOFF JOHNS takes his two most kick-ass titles and crosses the two over.. and we’re loving every second of it!
Both JUSTICE LEAGUE and AQUAMAN have been major DCU releases, and have been delivering in a big way since day 1. Now, as the secrets of Atlantis are revealed, and Aquaman’s origins come to the surface, a war begins to brew between the JUSTICE LEAGUE and ATLANTIS, and AQUAMAN’s struggle to fend off OCEAN MASTER is all that keeps ATLANTIS from waging war on the surface world altogether.
Killer artwork, killer storytelling, folks, if you’ve yet to jump on board either AQUAMAN or JUSTICE LEAGUE, now’s a great chance to try both of these top tier DCU titles.
We recommend starting with the THRONE OF ATLANTIS prelude in AQUAMAN #14, and then catch up with chapters 1 & 2 in JUSTICE LEAGUE #15 and AQUAMAN #14, all in stock now.

REVIVAL #6 — ONE OF THE BEST NEW IMAGE SERIES OF 2012 CONTINUES TO IMPRESS IN 2013 — Meet artist MIKE NORTON this Saturday at THIRD EYE!

REVIVAL has been one of those IMAGE hit releases that just refuses to slow down; it gets better and better with each issue, and continues to pick up new readers every month as a result, and folks, I gotta tell you, I’m proud to say we’ve been singing it’s praises since issue #1.

REVIVAL is a smart rural noir / horror hybrid that combines the isolated crime thriller storytelling of a movie like FARGO or NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN with the eerie, supernatural-themed horror storytelling of something like THE EXORCIST, or PARANORMAL ACTIVITY.

What’s it about? For one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it’s up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them. In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.

In issue #6, Dana investigates the murder of a prominent psychologist who specialized in coping with returned loved ones… aka.. the living dead.

And, it’s issues like this why we love the series so much. The way that the idea of “living dead” is handled is so different from most zombie stories; adding a creepy, almost biblical kind of sense to the ‘revivers’ as they’re called.

You want smart storytelling? You want strong characters? You want the kind of twists and turns that’ll leave you coming back for more? Give REVIVAL a shot.

You can either catch up with issues 1-5, all in stock now, so you’re up to date for Wednesday’s #6, or you can grab the first trade collecting issues 1-5, and hop on board with issue #6. Either way, you are going to want to get into this book, Third Eye Faithful.

Meet REVIVAL artist MIKE NORTON this Saturday 1/26 at THIRD EYE

The timing for our signing with Mike Norton and Dennis Hopeless is pretty perfect, as tons of Mike’s stuff is hitting this week, but for those of you who’re huge REVIVAL fans, then you KNOW you’ve gotta get Mike to sign your copies of REVIVAL this Saturday.

Make sure to line up early, because we’ve got a VERY special REVIVAL-related free gift we’ll be giving out to the first 20 peeps in line.

MARVEL NOW UNLEASHES IT’S OTHER NEW ONGOING WITH THIS WEDNESDAY’SUNCANNY X-FORCE #1 BY “SACRIFICE” writer SAM HUMPHRIES!

Storm! Spiral! Puck! Bishop! Psylocke! Lady Fantomex! This book rules!

Man, we are SO stoked about this new MARVEL NOW series, I mean, we were already huge fans of the previous incarnation of UNCANNY X-FORCE, but when we saw that THIRD EYE favorite writer SAM HUMPHRIES was going to be coming on board with legendary artist RON GARNEY, we knew we were going to be in for a treat.

In UNCANNY X-FORCE, the darkest corners of the MUTANT UNIVERSE are EXPOSED! The X-MEN: sworn to protect a world that fears and hates them. UNCANNY X-FORCE: charged to deal with situations the X-MEN fear and hate! Psylocke and Storm lead a new team of outcasts and scoundrels, including fan-favorite PUCK (of ALPHA FLIGHT), the villainous Spiral (aka the character most likely to drive you insane in MARVEL VS CAPCOM) and the mysterious Cluster. Plus: WHO IS LADY FANTOMEX?

The first adversary to strike out from the darkness? X-Legend: BISHOP!

Folks, this book SCREAMS raw energy, it’s like the Iggy Pop of X-Men comics, as the story kicks into high gear from page 1, and you’re getting an action-packed ride from start to finish.

Garney’s art has never looked better, bringing the best energy and excitement we’ve seen from him since his now-legendary CAPTAIN AMERICA run with MARK WAID, and HUMPHRIES, who’s wowed us with his work on SACRIFICE, HIGHER EARTH, and THE ULTIMATES, totally kills on the storytelling here.

The team line-up is rad, and we love the portrayal of characters like SPIRAL and PSYLOCKE, as well as the villainous new role of BISHOP in this story.

Folks, GET INTO IT! Snag yourself a copy this Wednesday!

NEIL GAIMAN’S BOOKS OF MAGIC ARRIVES IN A DELUXE HARDCOVER THIS WEDNESDAY!

Before there was Harry Potter, there was Timothy Hunter

From the writer of THE SANDMAN and AMERICAN GODS

By now, I’m sure many of you have already figured out that we’re all pretty major fans of NEIL GAIMAN here at Third Eye, and his legendary works on series like THE SANDMAN, BLACK ORCHID, 1602, AMERICAN GODS, and more.

So, when DC releases something by Mr Gaiman, new or old, we tend to take notice, and they couldn’t have chosen a better book than this Wednesday’s BOOKS OF MAGIC.

This mesmerizing tale of the dangers and opportunities of youth, and its endless possibilities arrives in a gorgeous, oversized hardcover edition this Wednesday, collecting the original miniseries of BOOKS OF MAGIC, for the first time in hardcover.

Timothy Hunter could be the most powerful magician in the world, but does he really want to be ? John Constantine, Phantom Stranger, Mister E, and Doctor Occult attempt to aid Timothy in choosing his path, but by the time Timothy makes a choice, it may have already been made for him.

If you’re either a huge NEIL GAIMAN fan, or a big HARRY POTTER fan, then you need to read this book. Imagine the legendary writer of THE SANDMAN doing his own take on the young magician, and that sums up BOOKS OF MAGIC well.

A great addition to anyone’s library that just plain appreciates great comics.

CULLEN BUNN FOLLOWS UP LAST FALL’S “DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE” WITH DEADPOOL KILLUSTRATED #1 THIS WEDNESDAY
DEADPOOL… KILLING EVERY FAMOUS LITERARY CHARACTER YOU CAN THINK OF!
This Wednesday delivers the highly anticipated sequel to DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE, and we cannot wait to see it. Written by DEADPOOL KILLS author CULLEN BUNN, DEADPOOL KILLUSTRATED is a mini-series featuring the Merc with a Mouth deciding what to do now after having killed every single MARVEL UNIVERSE hero.
What’s his next plan? He’s going to travel through the pages of great literature, and kill every freakin’ literary great he can find, starting this Wednesday with MOBY DICK!

NICK SPENCER & RILEY ROSSMO’S KILLER NEW IMAGE SERIES, BEDLAM, CONTINUES WITH THIS WEDNESDAY’S BEDLAM #3
Imagine if THE JOKER behaved like DEXTER MORGAN.
BEDLAM arrives this WEDNESDAY with it’s highly anticipated third issue, and we cannot wait to see where this one is heading next.
Riley Rossmo’s eerie, haunting artwork brings this book to life in a big way, and MORNING GLORIES writer NICK SPENCER is delivering some of his finest work as he delves into the madness that Madder Red embodies.
This is a pure horror and mystery story, that takes the arch-type of the insane, masked villain, ala THE JOKER, and runs with it in a big way.
Madder Red is the worst, most despicable villain to live, and now, after a surgery has changed his brain make-up, he has a compulsion to hunt others like his former masked identity.
Creepy, eerie, and intense, BEDLAM is MUST-READ material, Third Eye Faithful.
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to catch you up to this Wednesday’s #3.

UNCANNY AVENGERS #3 – THE HYBRID TEAM OF X-MEN AND AVENGERS CONTINUES TO IMPRESS IN THIS KILLER NEW ONGOING SERIES!
The RED SKULL is using his new powers to incite violence against mutants on a worldwide scale, and it’s up to the UNCANNY AVENGERS to bring a stop to it.
Meanwhile, SCARLET WITCH and ROGUE make a terrible discovery that will haunt them forever…. and trust us, you’re going to want to know what it is.
UNCANNY AVENGERS is a fantastic read, and serves as a great follow-up to AVENGERS VS. X-MEN, as it merges the two teams into one, giving us a roster consisting of HAVOK, THOR, SCARLET WITCH, CAPTAIN AMERICA, ROGUE, and WOLVERINE.
Rick Remender, writer of FEAR AGENT, UNCANNY X-FORCE, and CAPTAIN AMERICA, serves up some of his best work here, giving the book a tone that’s reminiscent of the ’90s X-MEN animated series, but with a modern, cutting edge spin.
Big, bold, and over-the-top, UNCANNY AVENGERS is a sheer treat from start to finish, folks, and we recommend getting into it.
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to catch you up to tomorrow’s #3.

DEATH OF THE FAMILY CONTINUES THIS WEDNESDAY IN NIGHTWING #16 & RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #16
The DEATH OF THE FAMILY continues to reign as our favorite thing coming out of DC COMICS right now, and this week’s round of tie-ins for DEATH OF THE FAMILY both deliver incredible reads.
In NIGHTWING #16, we’re shown that things can get much worse, even after the shocking events at the conclusion of last month’s NIGHTWING #15.
Now, Dick Grayson’s past is about to burn down around him… literally!
And, in RED HOOD AND THE OUTLAWS #16, which ties into this month’s TEEN TITANS #16, we’re shown that Tim Drake and Jason Todd are desperately trying to survive their confrontation with THE JOKER, while keeping their respective teams from killing each other.
Both of these were great tie-ins to the DEATH OF THE FAMILY event, and we cannot wait to see where things head next after this.

IDW’S BORDERLANDS ORIGINS SERIES CONTINUES TO REVEAL THE HISTORY AND ORIGINS OF THE VAULT HUNTERS!
IDW does an incredible job with their licensed stuff, and their new BORDERLANDS ORIGINS mini-series is no exception, as it delivers a killer take on the lore and backstory of this cult favorite video game.
We know that many of you die-hard BORDERLANDS fans have the same question: how did the VAULT HUNTERS get on the bus with Marcus in the first place?
That question is answered in the ORIGINS series, and in this week’s #3, the tone shifts to an old-school Spaghetti Western as we find out where Mordecai comes from and what secrets he is hiding in his past.
Wanna get caught up? We’ve got BORDERLANDS ORIGINS 1 & 2 in stock now to get you up to date.

AVENGERS #3 – JONATHAN HICKMAN & JEROME OPENA CONTINUE TO CRAFT THE BEST AVENGERS WE’VE READ IN DECADES WITH THIS WEEK’S AVENGERS #3
JONATHAN HICKMAN and JEROME OPENA’s AVENGERS run continues to impress the heck out of us each and every issue, and this week’s #3 is definitely our favorite yet.
Opena’s art is nothing short of jaw dropping, as he works perfectly to bring to life the widescreen, sci-fi action madness of Hickman’s story.
With a storyline that’s reminiscent of the very best of Warren Ellis’s AUTHORITY run, the AVENGERS really is an example of what we love about mainstream comics in this day and age.
We’re loving everything about the book, the new team, the bad guys, the killer art, the great storytelling, the iconic characterizations of classic Marvel characters… the whole shebang is just plain awesome.
Wanna get on board? We’ve got issues 1-3 in stock and available now to get you up to speed.

MARS ATTACKS IDW CONTINUES THIS WEEK WITH MARS ATTACKS TRANSFORMERS!
IDW knows how to do big ridiculous crossovers right, and in the tradition of their thoroughly awesome INFESTATION and INFESTATION 2 crossovers, they’re once again ravaging all their titles in MARS ATTACKS IDW.
This week, we’re treated to an especially cool one, as the Martians bring their death rays to fire on CYBERTRON.
Autobots and Decepticons must unite as they fend off the invasions of the Martians in MARS ATTACKS TRANSFORMERS.

DEADPOOL #4 – The fourth issue of the kick-ass new DEADPOOL series from BRIAN POSEHN, GERRY DUGGAN & TONY MOORE continues this Wednesday

DEADPOOL’s new MARVEL NOW ongoing series has been, in our opinion, the best take on the Merc with a Mouth since the legendary JOE KELLY run of DEADPOOL back in the ’90s.
While we’re big fans of Daniel Way’s iconic run through the 2000s, we still prefer less of the multiple voices, and more of the pure wacky insanity and carnage, like we’re getting in the brand new DEADPOOL ongoing.
The battle against every United States President continues, as the legions of zombie Presidents converge on DEADPOOL.
And, in this issue? DEADPOOL VS. LINCOLN? Crazy!
Tony Moore’s art is great, and Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn deliver a hilarious, and entertaining take on the character. Fantastic stuff, Third Eye Faithful!
Wanna get on board? We’ve got issues 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to current.

SACRIFICE #4 — THE SELF-PUBLISHED INDIE GEM FROM SAM HUMPHRIES CONTINUES THIS WEDNESDAY

SACRIFICE launched last year out of nowhere, and took the comics industry by storm. The unique, and innovative approach that creator SAM HUMPHRIES took to micro-distributing the title amongst the top comic shops in the U.S remains impressive to this day, and we haven’t even begun to talk about the actual quality of the book, which is insanely high.

SACRIFICE is one of those fantastic, yet rare combinations of gorgeous art, and solid writing that just makes for killer comics.

What’s the story about? Picture this: Hector is a young Joy Division fan who’s suffering from epilepsy, and as a possible result of a tattoo he has, he finds himself traveling in time to an ancient Aztec civilization.

From there, he’s put on a slab, and deemed necessary as a Sacrifice to the Sun Gods.

Dalton Rose’s art makes the book pop, bringing an energy very reminiscent of Paul Pope, while Humphries delivers a fascinating story that tackles genres like sci-fi, drama, history, and more.

SACRIFICE is a Third Eye favorite, and while quantities are very low, we do have copies of issues 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to this week’s #4.

A PLUS X #4 CONTINUES THE RADDEST SPIN ON A MARVEL TEAM-UP BOOK WE’VE SEEN YET! ALL-STAR CREATORS WORKING ON THE CHARACERS THEY MADE FAMOUS? YES!

A PLUS X has been a real sleeper of a hit, and we’re not surprised, the concept and execution of this kick-ass new MARVEL NOW title is pretty brilliant.

Stand-alone one-shot stories featuring all-star creators working on the characters they’re most known for? That’s a recipe for success, and we’re loving every second of it.

In this issue, we’re shown the Black Panther’s first post-AVX encounter with Storm, and Spider-Man and the Beast throw down.

Featuring creators KAARE ANDREWS, DAVID LOPEZ, and JASON LATOUR.

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got A PLUS X 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to #4.

THE ROAD TO THIS SUMMER’S STAR TREK 2 BEGINS IN WEDNESDAY’S STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS #1
As we had said earlier, IDW knows how to handle licensed books pretty damn well, and their upcoming STAR TREK: COUNTDOWN TO DARKNESS four-part mini-series leading into the upcoming STAR TREK 2 should be a freakin’ great read.

 

This official, in-continuity prequel to the upcoming STAR TREK 2, sets the stage for the film perfectly, much like 2009′s STAR TREK COUNTDOWN.

 

Make sure you snag yourself a copy this Wednesday, Third Eye Faithful.

BEFORE WATCHMEN: MINUTEMEN #6 — THE CONCLUSION TO THE FLAGSHIP BEFORE WATCHMEN TITLE ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY
The BEFORE WATCHMEN mini-series have been fantastic, and Darwyn Cooke’s (PARKER, NEW FRONTIER) BEFORE WATCHMEN MINUTEMEN has been one of our absolute favorites in the line-up.
THE MINUTEMEN title has been one of our favorites, as it does a great job of setting the foundation of the world of WATCHMEN, and building on the history of the characters that may not have gotten as much exposure in the original book as we would have liked.

 

Strong storytelling, gorgeous art, this is must-read stuff, Third Eye Faithful.

 

Wanna get on board? We’ve got issues 1-5 in stock now to catch you up to this week’s #6.

PHANTOM VARIANT ALERT: REVIVAL #6 & BEDLAM #3 FEATURE BRAND NEW PHANTOM VARIANT COVERS — AND REVIVAL #1 IS RE-ISSUED AS A SPECIAL EDITION FEATURING A PHANTOM COVER THAT INTERCONNECTS W/ FUTURE PHANTOMS!
We’ve got THREE kick-ass PHANTOM variants this week, Third Eye Faithful, and we’re stoked about ALL of them!

 

For those of you who may not already be familiar, the PHANTOM VARIANTS are a very limited edition of comics that are only available in 20 comic book stores.. worldwide. This means that they’re extremely limited in quantity and print run, and are a very special way to memorialize one of your favorite comics.

 

This week, we’ve got PHANTOM editions on two new releases, BEDLAM #3, and REVIVAL #6. And, then, something truly unique: a PHANTOM edition of REVIVAL #1, which will be the first of many in a series of interconnecting variants that will produce one large image of the entire cast of REVIVAL. As you can see, the PHANTOM of REVIVAL #6 matches this motif nicely.

 

 
We’ll have very limited quantities of all three of these in stock this Wednesday; and with REVIVAL artist MIKE NORTON in store this Saturday, we highly recommend snagging your PHANTOMS of REVIVAL quick so you can get ‘em signed by Mike!

 

HARBINGER #8 — ALMOST ONE YEAR IN, AND VALIANT COMICS’S RELAUNCH CONTINUES TO IMPRESS! GET ON BOARD WITH ONE OF OUR FAVORITES, HARBINGER, THIS WEDNESDAY
We’ve been consistently impressed by each and every one of the new VALIANT COMICS titles that relaunched almost a year ago; but HARBINGER continues to be one of our top favorites of the line.
This series, which will appeal to those of you who’re big fans of things like the movie CHRONICLE, or the manga / anime AKIRA, is a great example of the level of quality and cutting edge approach to storytelling that VALIANT is bringing to the superhero genre. Writer Joshua Dysart, who wowed us with his cult favorite UNKNOWN SOLDIER series from VERTIGO, is crafting a killer story about all-powerful corporations, immortal beings, and young men and women who find themselves harboring the power of gods.
As we get closer, and closer to the upcoming HARBINGER WARS storyline that we guarantee will have a ton of you guys taking major notice of VALIANT, HARBINGER continues to heat up.
Wanna get on board? You can snag the first trade which collects the first 5 issues for only $9.99 and then snag issues 6-8 to get up to date, or we can get you up to speed with issues 1-8 this Wednesday, as we have copies of each in stock.
Either way, find out why VALIANT is continuing to become one of our favorite publishers of modern superhero comics, and give this one a shot.
