This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 7/19/17

ASTONISHING X-MEN #1 kicks off THE must-read X-MEN book of the decade! 

In the vein of DC’s ALL STAR BATMAN, this premiere X-Title features all star talent like CHARLES SOULE (IvX, DAREDEVIL, Darth Vader, Curse Words) and Jim Cheung (YOUNG AVENGERS, INFINITY)

We have to tell you, Third Eye Faithful – Marvel’s ASTONISHING X-MEN may be the definitive must-read book of the Summer, and by far, is one of the most exciting takes on Marvel’s merry mutants since the iconic Joss Whedon / John Cassaday run that reinvented the characters!

Taking a very similar approach as DC’s ALL STAR BATMAN, where top talent (like Charles Soule and Jim Cheung here!) are able to freely weave incredible tales with the most iconic X-MEN, and showcase some of their most iconic villains, ASTONISHING X-MEN is a must-read!

In issue #1, an ancient evil is attacking the world’s most powerful minds. It will have them by the time you finish this sentence, and a moment later, it will have us all.

A band of X-MEN discovers the truth behind the threat, but there is no time left. PSYLOCKE, OLD MAN LOGAN, BISHOP, ARCHANGEL, FANTOMEX, ROGUE and GAMBIT will attempt to save a world that hates and fears them.

Why? BECAUSE THEY ARE THE X-MEN.

A perfect place to start reading the characters, jump on board with this week’s issue #1 and find out why we’re super pumped about this new ongoing series!

The WAR OF JOKES AND RIDDLES continues with its third chapter in BATMAN #27 this Wednesday!

A true classic in the making – this fantastic YEAR ONE-style story is on track to rank up there with THE LONG HALLOWEEN, BATMAN YEAR ONE, and more as one of the great untold tales of the Dark Knight!

In this week’s BATMAN #27, the third installment of the WAR OF JOKES AND RIDDLES kicks off in a big way, and we could not be more pumped!

The war has spread to every corner of Gotham City, and while Batman battles back the forces of Joker and Riddler, an unlikely criminal becomes the pivotal key to its potential resolution…but it could cost him everything.

What’s the scoop on this story arc that began in issue #25? In his own words, Bruce Wayne narrates a harrowing, never-before-told story of the Dark Knight’s greatest failure…and the horrors it unleashed! In the spirit of YEAR ONE and THE LONG HALLOWEEN, prepare to see a side of Batman you’ve never seen before-get in on the ground floor of a classic Batman epic in the making!

We’ve got BATMAN 25 & 26 in stock now to get you caught up!

Image’s GENERATION GONE #1 brings the return of ZERO writer ALES KOT in this incrdible new sci-fi epic!

One of the most exciting Image releases of the Summer!

We’ve been big fans of Ales Kot’s work on series like ZERO, and when we saw he had something brand new on the way — we were pretty freakin’ stoked!

It’s America, 2020.

Three young hackers with nothing to lose. A secretive scientist with a plan. One final job.

What happens when you’re poor, angry, and get superpowers you never asked for?

Skins + Unbreakable = GENERATION GONE, sort of- if you also include multiple trips to the sun, weird black goo, a breakup fight inside a nuclear factory, love, hate, anger, loss…and survival.

GENERATION GONE is for every kid struggling out there. It’s about what it means to be young in the USA, 2017.

A pure shot of comic storytelling at its best, GENERATION GONE conjures up all the things that made us love sci-fi comics from pioneers like WARREN ELLIS, GRANT MORRISON and more!

Jump on with this week’s GENERATION GONE #1!

Prepare for MARVEL: LEGACY with the FREE Generations Preview Book this Wednesday!

Get the full scoop on Marvel’s very own take on the REBIRTH initiative with the GENERATIONS preview! FREE while supplies last!

Just like DC totally blew our minds a few years ago with their epic DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH initiative that took the DCU back to its roots, while still keeping their feet firmly planted in the future, we’re pretty darn stoked about Marvel’s upcoming LEGACY initiative, and the Road to LEGACY begins in GENERATIONS next month!

While the details about LEGACY are very well guarded, ’cause let’s face it: the surprise factor is going to be HUGE, we can say this – the events of SECRET EMPIRE will be leading to a cataclysmic change to the entire Marvel Universe, and many of its most iconic, and mightiest heroes will be making a grand return to the spotlight!

Along with them, they’ll be joining ranks with many of the newer heroes who have taken up the mantle they left behind, and working with some of these characters as mentors, inspirations, and in some cases… rivals!

Generations is where it all begins, and we’re giving you all a special early peek at what’s in store with this special free PREVIEWS book!

We think it’s safe to say that many of you, like ourselves, grew up with Huey, Dewey, Louie, and their pals Launchpad and Gizmoduck.

So, when we saw that IDW was bringing out a brand new DUCKTALES comic, we knew we had to give it some serious love, Third Eye Faithful!

Make sure you scoop a copy this week, and treat yourself to a trip down memory lane!

Marvel’s most killer event story in ages continues as SECRET EMPIRE #6 rallies the troops with the UNWORTHY THOR leading the charge against THE SECRET EMPIRE! The road to MARVEL LEGACY is here!

We’re loving the heck out of SECRET EMPIRE, and as the road to LEGACY and GENERATIONS becomes more and more clear, we’re getting more and more hooked!

As we had told you guys last year, the UNWORTHY THOR mini-series was a very important saga to read in anticipation of Marvel’s big Rebirth with LEGACY. In a way, we’d compare UNWORTHY THOR to the LOIS AND CLARK series that preceded DC REBIRTH. Not quite a direct prelude, but very much a sign of what’s to come, as well as a way to establish the groundwork for what’s on the way!

Now, in this week’s SECRET EMPIRE #6, as the battles rage on against the imposter Captain America and his sinister legions, the Unworthy, the Unstable, and the Untrusted, all unite to bring the fight straight to them!

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got SECRET EMPIRE #0-5 in stock now to get you current!

MOONSTRUCK #1 debuts from IMAGE COMICS featuring LUMBERJANES creator GRACE ELLIS, with a special short featuring artist KATE LETH!

A brand new ongoing series that you’ll love!

We’re huge fans of the series LUMBERJANES, and when we saw that creator KATE LETH was also attached, we knew we had to give this book a shout-out, ’cause it sounds absolutely awesome!

This new series tells a story of monsters, romance, and magical hijinks.. and every second of it is pretty darn amazing.

Fantasy creatures are living typical, unremarkable lives alongside humans, and barista Julie strives to be the most unremarkable of all.

Normal job, normal almost-girlfriend, normal…werewolf transformations that happen when she gets upset?

Yikes!
But all bets are off when she and her centaur best friend Chet find themselves in the middle of a magical conspiracy.

Will Julie and Chet be able to save their friends? Is Julie’s dogged determination to be normal a lost cause?

Who’s going to watch the coffee shop while our heroes are out saving the world??

These questions and more will be answered in MOONSTRUCK,

A surprise hit from MARVEL this Summer has been the incredible WEAPONS OF MUTANT DESTRUCTION arc that’s introducing the mysterious new WEAPON H aka WEAPON GAMMA!

Simply put: it’s a HULK with adamantium bones and claws – and we think that’s pretty much the best darn thing ever.

With deadly Adamantium cyborgs on the loose picking off seemingly unconnected targets, Amadeus must keep his wits about him to uncover the mystery behind the new Weapon X program.

KORGI SHORT TALES one-shot delivers a ton of KORGI awesomeness this Wednesday!

We’ve been long-time fans of the incredible TOP SHELF graphic novels for KORGI, and when we saw that IDW in collaboration with TOP SHELF would be collecting a ton of KORGI stories never before compiled into graphic novels – we knew we had to shout it out!

A robot loses its head, finger-puppets battle, a dragon learns to breathe fire, and Sprout the Korgi (of course) stuffs himself with delicious treats!

Slade’s lovingly detailed pen-and-ink drawings bring his fantasy world to life in small slices, all bound up within a new fully-painted cover.

Gorgeous artwork.. and an adorable Korgi makes this a must-have!

DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN #2 delivers another blood-drenchingly hilarious read!

We’re loving the fact that Cullen Bunn, writer of the original DEADPOOL KILLOGY, has returned with DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE AGAIN, and this week’s issue #2 keeps the awesome going!

Remember the time Deadpool went a little TOO crazy and killed the entire Marvel Universe? Well, this isn’t that.

This is a DIFFERENT time. Writer Cullen Bunn and artist Dalibor Talajic (A.K.A. the creators behind DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE) have reunited for ANOTHER tale of Deadpool taking out all of your faves in the most horrific ways possible!

BETTIE PAGE #1 brings the one and only BETTIE PAGE to comics this Wednesday!

You may have already guessed from our tattoos, our playlists, and our unique sense of fashion, but we’re all pretty big fans of the classic age of pin-up art at Third Eye, and when we saw that the one and only queen of the pin-ups, Bettie Page, would be getting the spotlight in an all new comic series – well, we just about lost our minds!

She’s more modest than Ms. Blaise, but peels more than Ms. Emma. She out-vamps Vampirella, but she’s sweeter than Honey West.

She put the mod in model, and the bangs in bang-bang.

Now the world can know the truth:  her classified adventures back in 1951 Hollywood have been declassified.  Dynamite, David Avallone and Colton Worley are proud to present The Secret Diary of Bettie Page, in handy comic book form.

Get the BETTIE PAGE #1 Cover Bundle, featuring all 6 regular covers for just $19.99 & save 15%

Mike Allred returns to BATMAN 66 with the new BATMAN 66 meets the LEGION OF SUPERHEROES #1!

Is there anything more perfect than Mike Allred doing the LEGION? Seriously: this rules!

We’re huge fans of artist MIKE ALLRED (BATMAN 66, MADMAN), and we’ve loved all the BATMAN 66 stuff so far, but this may be the one we’re most amped about!

In pursuit of the time-traveling criminal known as Universo, the super-powered kids from the 30th century travel back to the 1960s to enlist the aid of the “greatest teen superhero ever” – Robin, the Boy Wonder!

But Batman’s hard-boiled nemesis Egghead has stolen one of their unattended time bubbles and taken off to the Legion’s own time period.

Looks like Batman has to head to the far-flung future with one group of heroes while Robin stays in the swinging sixties with another. Holy time-travel paradox!

You know it’s true, Third Eye Faithful: Mike Allred + the LEGION OF SUPERHEROES is a homerun!

We have to tell you, one of the best darn releases from DC this Summer, has gotta be the new arc of AQUAMAN!

Writer Dan Abnett is delivering a killer story, and the incredible artwork by STJEPAN SEJIC (SUNSTONE, DEATH VIGIL) makes this a truly unique and exciting read!

In chapter 2, enraged by rumors of Arthur’s survival in the slums of Atlantis, the ruthless King Rath orders the use of ancient Atlantean techno-magic to track down the Aquaman at all costs!

But the ex-king Arthur can’t hide for long when his fate collides with that of a mysterious young woman on the run from Rath’s own secret police. Her name: Dolphin.

Wanna start reading? We’ve got issue #25 in stock, which delivered the first chapter in the arc, to get you on board!

JAMES BOND KILL CHAIN #1 delivers a killer new take on 007!

The Dynamite JAMES BOND comics have been quietly some of the best darn comics on the stands, and each mini-series has really delivered an incredible BOND tale that’s left us wanting more!

Now, the fun continues with this week’s JAMES BOND: KILL CHAIN!

When a counterespionage operation in Rotterdam goes catastrophically wrong, James Bond finds himself in the crosshairs of a plot to smash NATO.

Someone is assassinating allied agents, and 007 is the next target in the kill chain. Having kept the peace for decades, the old alliance is collapsing, pitting MI6 against its former ally – the CIA!

Dynamite Entertainment proudly presents the return of writer Andy Diggle (James Bond: Hammerhead, The Losers, Green Arrow: Year One) and artist Luca Casalanguida (James Bond: Hammerhead) as they plot the return of James Bond’s oldest and deadliest foe: SMERSH!

One of our favorite  comics of all time, SCALPED, arrives in a new reissued format with SCALPED BOOK 1 TP, collecting issues 1-11 of the epic series from SOUTHERN BASTARDS writer JASON AARON!

We’ve got to tell ya, Third Eye Faithful: one of the best darn comics of the last twenty years has gotta be JASON AARON’S SCALPED series, and we’re so stoked to see Vertigo reissuing it in these big fat slabs of comic awesome, that collect a dozen or so issues of the run into one volume!

If you’re a fan of TV series like THE WIRE or SOPRANOS, you’ll love the gritty, hard-hitting crime drama storytelling of SCALPED, where good guys go bad, and bad guys… end up not so bad!

The first eleven issues of the acclaimed series are collected in a new trade paperback!

Dashiell Bad Horse has come home to the reservation armed with a set of nunchucks,  a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and a dark secret. But nothing has changed-except for the glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime.

Snag a copy this week, and find out why we love it!

Valiant’s SECRET WEAPONS #2 continues to shape the future of the Valiant Universe, and continue the great trend of quality that the new X-O MANOWAR has set!

We’ve been loving the output of Valiant in 2017, and the new SECRET WEAPONS series is looking to be one of our favorite additions to the line!

In SECRET WEAPONS, the government has dispatched Amanda McKee – the technopath codenamed Livewire – to investigate the ruins of a secret facility formerly run by Toyo Harada, the most powerful telepath on Earth and her former mentor. In his quest for world betterment at any cost, Harada sought out and activated many potential psiots like himself.

Those who survived, but whose powers he deemed to have no value to his cause, were hidden away at this installation. But Livewire, having studied Harada’s greatest strengths and learned his deepest weaknesses, senses opportunity where he once saw failure.

A young girl who can talk to birds… A boy who can make inanimate objects gently glow… To others, these are expensive failures.

But, to Livewire, they are secret weapons…in need of a leader. Now, as a mechanized killer called Rexo seeks to draw them out, Livewire and her new team of cadets will be forced to put their powers into action…in ways they never could have imagined…

SONS OF ANARCHY creator KURT SUTTER delivers a brand new series with SISTERS OF SORROW #1 this Wednesday! 

Non-stop nuns with guns mayhem!

As big fans of ’70s and ’80s exploitation cinema awesomeness, we’re a sucker for the nuns-with-guns genre, and when we saw that it was coming to comics – we had to shout it out!

By day, Dominique, Greta, Misha, and Sarah run a nonprofit women’s shelter. At night, they each don a nun’s habit and move through Los Angeles hunting down violent abusers who have escaped justice.

Their increasingly public vigilantism has earned them the nickname Sisters of Sorrow, and has drawn the ire of L.A.’s notorious anti-crime task force.

If James Bond was a completely horrible human being.. and then some, you’d get Jimmy from Jimmy’s Bastards! From the writer of PREACHER, THE BOYS and more!

Anything by Ennis typically pulls us in, and we’re pretty darn pumped about his latest project, JIMMY’S BASTARDS!

Helicopter gunships and golf don’t mix, as Jimmy finds himself proving when a quick nine holes turns into Apocalypse Now.
