This Week’s Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 9/13/17

The biggest DC Comics event yet continues with DARK NIGHTS: METAL #2 this Wednesday!

Who are the NIGHTMARE BATMEN? The awesomeness of METAL continues this week at Third Eye!

OK, so first off: that ending of METAL #1 — FREAKIN’ HUGE, right? We gotta tell ya now: if you’ve never read THE SANDMAN, and are wondering just why we’re so crazy excited about how issue #1 ended; then do yourselves a favor and pop by the shop this week and scoop SANDMAN VOL.1 when you grab METAL #2! Just trust us!

OK, now, moving ahead here — METAL #2 is totally crazy awesome in every way you could imagine.

The dream team of SNYDER, CAPULLO and GLAPION (BATMAN: Court of Owls and so much more!) continue to deliver what is easily the biggest, best DC Comics event since BLACKEST NIGHT, and we are PUMPED for what’s coming next!

As Superman and Wonder Woman hunt for a missing ally, Batman investigates a mystery spanning centuries.

When the World’s Greatest Detective discovers a foe even greater than the Justice League could possibly imagine, will Earth’s heroes be ready?

What’s METAL all about? Spinning out of a mystery that Batman has been investigating ever since the very first issue of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run that began with THE COURT OF OWLS, and has continued into Rebirth with the recent revelations from THE BUTTON storyline, METAL is the culmination of everything that all star BATMAN creative team Snyder and Capullo have been building towards for the last few years.

Whether it’s Nth Metal or Doctor Fate’s helmet – there’s a lot of strange and mysterious metals in the DC Universe that do strange and mysterious things.

And, there’s something about them that’s connected to the entirety of the DCU Multiverse in a big way.

You better believe BATMAN has been on top of this from the get go — but, now, the very DARK MATTER that he’s been investigating is beginning to seep into the reality of the current DC Universe… and with it, it’s bringing something very interesting: the Dark Multiverse.

Just like there’s 52 Earths, and a different reality for each – there’s a dark side to these worlds, a dark multiverse, and as it’s tentacles extend into the DC Universe.. they’re changing it in a very frightening way.

All the mysteries you’ve been waiting to see come to light, from the myster of the THREE JOKERS, to the long-time intrigue surrounding things like Hawkman and Nth Metal.. it’s all going to be explored here in METAL!

Even more exciting — this storyline delivers the first real crisis of the Rebirth era, as the DC Universe finds itself terraformed into a horrific mirror of itself.

Didn’t think Gotham couldn’t get any scarier? Wait until you see it after the Dark Matter has had its way with it.

Wanna get caught up? We’ve got issue 1, along with the preludes DARK DAYS: FORGE and CASTING, in stock now!

Don’t miss out on the METAL crossover, GOTHAM RESISTANCE, with TEEN TITANS #12 featuring the debut of THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS!

OK, so it’s official: DARK NIGHTS METAL is THE coolest thing in the world, and with it, we’re going to be seeing some very cool new side stories with it, and one of the big ones is GOTHAM RESISTANCE, which runs through TEEN TITANS, NIGHTWING and SUICIDE SQUAD!

The main focus of GOTHAM RESISTANCE is the twisted Joker / Batman hybrid, the BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, who reads the infamous NIGHTMARE BATMEN (which you can read all about here), and just like Batman, he’s got sidekicks.

An army of vampiric Robins, ready to strip the flesh from our favorite DC heroes bones!

From there, we’re taken into a storyline where some of the DCU’s biggest heroes (and villains) must protect Gotham City from these hideous, and twisted versions of THE DARK KNIGHT!

So, GOTHAM RESISTANCE is a mini-crossover that’s spinning out of METAL, and it runs through three titles: TEEN TITANS, NIGHTWING and SUICIDE SQUAD.

What’s the scoop on it? It’s pretty simple: THE BATMAN WHO LAUGHS, along with his pals in the NIGHTMARE BATMEN, have helped accelerate the transformation and terraforming of GOTHAM CITY into a twisted mosaic of monsters, magic and doom!

Trapped inside the Riddler’s deadly maze with nowhere to turn, Robin soon assembles an unlikely team of hometown heroes including Batgirl, Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Black Canary and Green Arrow to find the missing Nightwing and save their city!

The crossover will be a total of 3 chapters, and run through TEEN TITANS (Chapter 1), NIGHTWING (Chapter 2), and SUICIDE SQUAD (Chapter 3)

Marvel Legacy gets closer and closer in the aftermath of SECRET EMPIRE with the mysteries of THE VANISHING POINT being explored in GENERATIONS CAPTAIN MARVEL & CAPTAIN MAR-VELL #1!

The road to Marvel’s huge Rebirth initiative, MARVEL LEGACY, continues here!

Third Eye Faithful, we are so pumped about MARVEL LEGACY! Following hot on the heels of DC Comics’s own very cool return to their roots, DC REBIRTH, Marvel is bringing back many of their most iconic characters and thrusting them into the spotlight, alongside the next generation of heroes they’ve built over the last decade!

A blending of the things that have made MARVEL COMICS amazing for so many years combined with the cutting edge, innovative storytelling and world building that’s made Marvel so unique since the 2000s began – Marvel LEGACY is shaping up to be quite possibly the most exciting thing that we’ve seen the publisher do. Period.

We know that you’re like us, and CANNOT wait for LEGACY to start.. well, get ready to get an early look at the overall theme and tone of LEGACY with Marvel’s upcoming GENERATIONS series – a limited 10-issue series featuring special team-up one-shot issues pairing the return of a classic Marvel icon with their modern-day next generation counter part.

What’s really interesting about Marvel GENERATIONS is that many of the characters featured… have been MIA for quite some time, whether either dead or trapped somewhere else – but: this is legit. The characters you see returning here are the real deal, and these stories do happen – and LEGACY is going to be a big part of what explains how it happens.

Carol Danvers, THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL, finds herself face-to-face with someone she never thought she’d see again – Mar-Vell of the Kree, THE MIGHTY CAPTAIN MARVEL!

But before she can get to the bottom of this impossible reunion, she gets embroiled in combat with someone who wants the Kree destroyed – talk about terrible timing!

Get the GENERATIONS IRON MAN  #1 Cover B MAKE MINE MARVEL variant for normal cover price this week at Third Eye while supplies last!

With something as big as LEGACY and GENERATIONS, Marvel has cooked up some incredible variant covers – and our favorites?

These awesome MAKE MINE MARVEL covers that pay tribute to those striking one-off images you remember from classic Marvel Comics posters and covers of yesteryear.

With a new school flair, and an old school appeal, these are gorgeous, and you can scoop your’s for normal cover price this week at Third Eye!

SECRET EMPIRE’s epic conclusion is explored in the epilogue issue, SECRET EMPIRE OMEGA #1, this Wednesday!

We really dug SECRET EMPIRE, and thought that the conclusion in issue #10 a couple of weeks back was super awesome.

So, we’re pretty pumped to see where things are going next as we get closer and closer to MARVEL LEGACY in this week’s SECRET EMPIRE OMEGA #1!

Hydra has fallen, but the world is still not secure!

As the heroes of the Marvel Universe stir from the wreckage of the battlefield, the inevitable rebuilding must begin.

However, one question hangs in the air over the proceedings: What redemption can there be for Captain America?

HARLEY QUINN 25TH ANNIVERSARY SPECIAL One-Shot delivers a MUST-READ for all Harley fans!

Featuring superstar artists like AMANDA CONNER, BABS TARR, DUSTIN NGUYEN and more, along with a special HARLEY story by SEX CRIMINALS / SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN writer CHIP ZDARSKY!

In a story written by Amanda Conner and Jimmy Palmiotti, with art by Conner, learn what really happened when Harley, Catwoman, and Poison Ivy hit Vegas!

Then, a tale written by Paul Dini with art by Chad Hardin takes us back to Harley’s days with the Joker to see the hell he unleashes when he makes the mistake of scheduling the biggest heist of their career on Harley’s birthday!

Plus, writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Joe Quinones pit Harley and the Joker against Batman and Robin — but while you might think the Joker knows how to play with Batman’s mind, it’s nothing compared to Harley’s ability to crack Robin’s psyche!

And that’s not all! Writer Dale Kibblesmith with art by David LaFuente put Coney Island right in the path of a hurricane — and put Harley on a collision course with Swamp Thing, of all people…monsters…things…?

We’re telling you now, Third Eye Faithful, if you didn’t pick up MISTER MIRACLE #1 last month — you need to remedy that this week AND grab issue #2 while you’re at it.

Just trust us: this is some of the best darn comic book storytelling we’ve seen in forever, and it’s that kind of killer storytelling and artwork that transcends genre; even if you’re not a big superhero fan, even if you’ve never gotten into the awesomeness that is Kirby’s NEW GODS, you gotta try this: you’ll love it!

What do you do after the most death-defying act of your escape artist career?

You go to war, of course! Scott Free has skipped out on his trip to the great beyond and taken a boom tube to New Genesis instead, where he and his wife, Big Barda, take on the invading hordes of Apokolips.

Things are a little off, however, and Mister Miracle starts to doubt why he’s fighting when Orion takes over the mantle of Highfather. It’s enough to make a New God miss Granny Goodness’s orphanage!

One of our favorite Marvel series returns with the all new RUNAWAYS #1! Perfect place to start reading the characters — jump on here!

We’re HUGE fans of the series RUNAWAYS, which originally began under the super-talented hand of the one and only BRIAN K VAUGHAN (SAGA, PAPER GIRLS, and more), and has since seen talents like JOSS WHEDON and TERRY MOORE (Strangers in Paradise, Rachel Rising) deliver incredible takes on the characters!

So, we’re pretty stoked about the newest incarnation of the book, and if you’ve never read the characters – this is a great place to start!

The “IT” book of the early 2000s with the original cast is back – Nico! Karolina! Molly! Chase! Old Lace! And, could it be? GERT?!

ALIEN VS. PREDATOR meets the MARVEL UNIVERSE as VENOMVERSE continues with VENOMVERSE #2 this Wednesday!

This is one of the most fun reads we’ve seen all year — make sure you get on board, and find out just what the heck a “POISON” is (hint: it’s a Venom symbiote-hunting alien lifeform that’s pretty freakin’ cool!)

The Poisons’ relentless campaign against the Venoms continues, and Spider-Man is among the first to fall!


Meanwhile, Deadpool’s cooked up an idea of how to stop the Poisons, but it ain’t exactly sane!

What’s VENOMVERSE all about? Kicking off in VENOMVERSE #1,  a routine battle with the villainous Jack O’Lantern, leads Venom to find himself transported into a far-off world and learns a terrible truth – a deadly new species called the Poisons has emerged from the vastness of space, and to make matters worse, they’re hunting Venoms!

Trapped on the planet’s surface with a ragtag band of Venomized heroes, Eddie has no choice but to mount a counteroffensive and hope to find a way home!

The art on this is gorgeous, the storytelling is super fun, and I mean, c’mon: a team of VENOMIZED heroes going head to head with the Marvel equivalent of a PREDATOR? You know this is gonna be a blast!

NICK CAVE: MERCY ON ME delivers a graphic novel biography of one of our favorite musicians!

Musician, novelist, poet, actor: Nick Cave is a Renaissance man. His wide-ranging artistic output – always uncompromising, hypnotic, and intense – is defined by an extraordinary gift for storytelling.

In Nick Cave: Mercy on Me, Reinhard Kleist employs a cast of characters drawn from Cave’s music and writing to tell the story of a formidable artist and influencer.

Kleist paints an expressive and enthralling portrait of Cave’s childhood in Australia; his early years fronting The Birthday Party; the sublime highs of his success with The Bad Seeds; and the crippling lows of his battle with heroin.

Kleist’s graphic biography, like Cave’s songs, is by turns electrifying, sentimental, morbid, and comic – but always engrossing.

Frank Miller & Geoff Darrow’s modern classic, HARD BOILED, gets a gorgeous new edition this Wednesday!

Brutal, ultra-violent science fiction — imagine BLADE RUNNER with the high-octane action of THE MATRIX!

We’re huge fans of Frank Miller. We’re huge fans of Geoff Darrow. And, the work that the two of them did together back when still holds up as some of the most compelling comic book storytelling of all-time.

This week, we’re seeing the reissue of one of our big-time Third Eye Favorites: HARD BOILED!

Carl Seltz is a suburban insurance investigator, a loving husband, and a devoted father.

Nixon is a berserk, homicidal tax collector racking up mind-boggling body counts in a diseased urban slaughterhouse.

Unit Four is the ultimate robot killing machine-and the last hope of the future’s enslaved mechanical servants. And they’re all the same psychotic entity.

For the art alone – this book is totally worth it; but if you’ve never read it before, the story will also grab you in a big way! Great cyberpunk sci-fi that doesn’t stop for a breather — give it a shot!
