This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 5/17/17

The BUTTON crossover concludes in FLASH #22 this Wednesday in THE BUTTON CHAPTER 4!

The very first mysteries that began to unfold in last year’s DC REBIRTH one-shot are now explored in this highly anticipated crossover!

Featuring a special lenticular transforming cover!

OK, so – we’ve been DYING for this storyline ever since the last pages of last Summer’s incredible DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH one-shot.

And, now, it’s almost here, and we know that you are just as pumped as we are, about seeing just what the heck is going on with the driving force behind DCU Rebirth: the introduction of the WATCHMEN world to the DCU.

Starting this April, the story will unfold in the pages of two of DC’s biggest books: BATMAN and FLASH, in a special four part crossover, and trust us, Third Eye Faithful, you’re not gonna want to miss this!

What is THE BUTTON all about? 

In the pages of the universe-redefining DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH one-shot, there was a fateful scene where Batman finds the iconic button worn by the Comedian in the Batcave.

From there, our brains pretty much exploded as we realized just what was going on with DC REBIRTH, and what came before it.

Now, in a storyline that may be the biggest thing DC has done since FLASHPOINT, the BUTTON will start to reveal evertyhing, and we cannot wait to get to reading it.

The cataclysmic events of DC UNIVERSE: REBIRTH #1 continue here! The Dark Knight and The Fastest Man Alive, the two greatest detectives on any world, unite to explore the mystery behind a certain blood-stained smiley button embedded in the Batcave wall.

What starts as a simple investigation turns deadly when the secrets of the button prove irresistible to an unwelcome third party-and it’s not who anyone suspects!

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got BATMAN #21, FLASH # 21, and BATMAN #22, including those rad lenticular editions, in stock to hook you up!

SECRET EMPIRE #2 delivers a major follow-up issue that you have GOTTA READ AS SOON AS YOU GET IT THIS WEEK!!!

We’re so stoked about the upcoming second issue of SECRET EMPIRE, because.. well.. it’s pretty darn incredible.

So, the series thus far (issues 0 and 1) has really turned out to be one of the most well put together Marvel events we’ve seen in a while, and in this week’s issue #2 — they turn the awesome up to 110 in a big way.

Enshrouded in darkness, plagued by the minions of Baron Mordo and cut off from all assistance, The Defenders and Doctor Strange struggle to save the lives of the innocent people consigned to this hell on Earth.

Will Dagger prove to be the key to stopping this nightmare? Meanwhile, will the appearance of a new hero provide Iron Man with the key to Captain America’s startling change?  Find out in this week’s SECRET EMPIRE #2!

Wanna jump on board? We’ve got issues 0 and 1 in stock now to get you caught up!

What’s the scoop on SECRET EMPIRE?

The events of SECRET EMPIRE will be so big that they’re going to shake the Marvel Universe to its core, and give way to a Marvel Universe that’s unlike anything we’ve seen in recent memory, but also recaptures some of the most memorable Marvel icons at their best.

So — for the last year or so in the pages of CAPTAIN AMERICA: STEVE ROGERS, we’ve been following the fact that Steve Rogers has been co-opted (due to the meddling of a sentient cosmic cube that’s been manipulated) into believing that he’s been raised as a HYDRA operative. Of course, we STRONGLY believe that this is NOT the REAL Steve Rogers.

Now, after quietly making a ton behind-the-scene plays — the alternate reality Steve Rogers has revealed himself and his plan to the world at large, and HYDRA has taken control of most of the United States, with Steve getting sworn in as head of SHIELD with new emergency powers.

So, yeah, the Marvel Universe is about to become a pretty freakin’ scary place, and guess what: it’s going to be up to the heroes of the Marvel Universe to unite far and wide to battle the combined forces of HYDRA.

It’s been a VERY long time since we’ve seen a Marvel “big” storyline where the heroes aren’t just fighting each other. It’s pretty cool to see the heroes of the Marvel Universe uniting to fight the evil forces of Hydra.

Secondly – there’s a ton of speculation and theories surrounding just what SECRET EMPIRE will lead to. We know there’s some BIG stuff on the way for Marvel in the Summer and Fall, and we have a feeling that SECRET EMPIRE is just the tip of the iceberg to that.

And, then the even bigger theory is that Secret Empire is potentially the catalyst for the iconic OLD MAN LOGAN dystopian future where many of the Marvel heroes were killed, society had fallen, and the country had been divided into factions ruled by the Marvel’s most fearsome bad guys.

And, let’s not forget those visions in CIVIL WAR II of the OLD MAN LOGAN future that await.

Third – it’s a storyline that’s just plain slam-packed with action. It’s been a minute since we’ve seen a big Marvel storyline where we just got good ol’ fashion Marvel mayhem the way we like it — and this looks to be it!

Indie hit 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK continues with 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK #4!

If Quentin Tarantino and Wes Anderson made a comic together.. it’d be 4 KIDS! Meet series writer MATTHEW ROSENBERG at Third Eye on Saturday 7/8/17!

We’re huge fans of the indie crime / humor series 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK, and are totally stoked to see the next issue dropping this week at Third Eye!

What’s the scoop on this series? This killer 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.

Wanna get caught up on it? We’ve got issues 1-3 in stock to get you current!

The next ResurrXion launch title arrives with the all new ongoing GENERATION X #1!

Jubilee taks the reigns at the Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach, and we’re totally digging it in the all new GENERATION X series that’s launching with Marvel’s big X-MEN revival line: RESURRXION!

The Xavier Institute for Mutant Education and Outreach has opened its doors and is ready to foster the next generation of heroes and diplomats!

But this time around, the X-Men recognize an unfortunate truth: not all mutants are created equal.

Some mutants are not made to fight Sentinels or serve as ambassadors on behalf of their kind.

Some mutants will just be lucky to survive another day in a world that hates and fears them. And who better to mentor mutantkind’s lovable losers than perpetual sidekick Jubilee?

But will Jubilee and GENERATION X survive the experience??

We’re personally really stoked about this one as it captures that same kind of unique and fun energy that the original GENERATION X had back in the day in a big way.

Great storytelling, great artwork – make sure you hop on and check it out this week with issue #1!

Star Wars: the Screaming Citadel continues with Chapter 2 in this week’s STAR WARS #31!

We’re loving the new STAR WARS crossover between STAR WARS and the DOCTOR APHRA series that began last week in the SCREAMING CITADEL one-shot, and this week, the fun continues in STAR WARS #31!

While Luke and Aphra face the Queen of the Citadel — Han and Leia are coming for.. Aphra?

What’s the scoop on SCREAMING CITADEL? There’s a ton of reasons why, but we gotta tell ya: one of the biggest is that it’s being written by the one and only KIERON GILLEN, who did that entire 25 issue run of DARTH VADER that totally blew your minds!
