April 26, 2017

Join us on Wednesday 4/26/17 as we host one of our most anticipated events of 2017: ALIEN DAY!

Seriously: we're ecstatic about xenomorphs here at Third Eye, and lets be real: ALIEN COVNEANT looks SO DOPE!

So, we're pretty pumped to have a cool way to celebrate the new flick, and the killer new comic series, with our special ALIEN DAY event!

We'll be running

There's a TON of great ALIENS material out there, whether it's the killer DARK HORSE COMICS graphic novels, or the rad NECA toys, and we wanna help you save a few bucks on it all this ALIEN DAY!

ALL Alien merch, from graphic novels to facehugger piggy banks will be 20% off on 4/26/17! So make sure you swing by & take advantage of the specials!

Get issue #1 of the incredible new ALIENS: DEAD ORBIT min-series by JAMES STOKOE (ORC STAIN, GODZILLA HALF CENTURY WAR, WONTON SOUP)

So, one of our big-time favorite artists here at Third Eye is the incredibly talented James Stokoe, who many of you know from his work on GODZILLA HALF-CENTURY WAR and GODZILLA IN HELL, as well as his incredible IMAGE COMICS series ORC STAIN.

Well, when we found out that James was going to be writing and illustrating the upcoming ALIENS DEAD ORBIT mini-series... oh man, we lost our minds. Seriously: this book is gonna be so freakin' cool!

In ALIENS DEAD ORBIT, after a horrific accident strikes a space station, an engineering officer must use all available tools-a timer, utility kit, and his wits-to survive an attack from the deadliest creature known to man.

We're calling it right now: this will be the coolest ALIENS comic in ages! Do NOT sleep on this!

The winner will get hooked up with some super rad ALIEN swag!

Seven to Eternity Signing w/ Rick Remender
April 8, 2017

Guest: Rick Remender

Third Eye Faithful, we’re proud to announce one of our biggest signings to hit Third Eye yet as we bring the one and only RICK REMENDER all the way across the country to the Third Eye Mothership in Annapolis to sign copies of his epic new series, SEVEN TO ETERNITY, along with all of his other projects!

We’re super stoked about this as we’ve all been huge fans of Rick’s work for a very long time, so when the stars aligned, and we were able to put together a killer event to celebrate what is quickly becoming our favorite work by Rick yet: SEVEN TO ETERNITY — we totally lost our minds with excitement!

We know that there’s a ton of you out there who follow all of Rick’s incredible work, whether it’s the mind-bending pulp sci-fi of BLACK SCIENCE or the high octane fun of DEADLY CLASS, and we are totally pumped to see you all lining up bright and early to meet one of the most talented superstars working in comics today!

X-Men Gold #1 Launch Party
April 5, 2017

Third Eye Faithful, we are PUMPED for the new X-MEN: RESURRXION initiative, and with the stellar X-MEN GOLD leading the charge, we just HAD to do something cool to celebrate and kick off Marvel’s return to glory for our favorite mutants, ya know?

On April 5th, X-MEN GOLD will be hitting the shelves, and we’ve put together a KILLER launch event to celebrate!

After X-MEN PRIME, there’ll be two big ongoing series spinning out of all the X-MEN madness that’s gone down, and they’re going to be bringing back a concept we looooooved from back in the day: X-MEN BLUE and X-MEN GOLD!

That’s right: the BLUE TEAM / GOLD TEAM dynamic is in full effect, and we cannot wait to see how it plays out!

These are the flagship titles, and they all kick off in April when X-MEN GOLD #1 drops on 4/5/17!

With a team led by KITTY PRYDE, and featuring STORM, COLOSSUS, NIGHTCRAWLER, OLD MAN LOGAN, and RACHEL GREY – this is definitely the big, bold, and very superhero-centric X-MEN title.

We’re talking bad guys galore, as rumors are already swirling about the return of the classic BROTHERHOOD OF EVIL MUTANTS and much more.

A lot less focus on the hero vs hero conflicts and X-MEN vs. Inhuman conflicts, and a more traditional return to the kind of X-MEN comics you remember — do NOT sleep on X-MEN GOLD!

We’ll have the following fun stuff going on:

FREE X-MEN GOLD Lithograph with purchase of X-MEN GOLD #1 (while supplies last)
Get the EXCLUSIVE X-MEN GOLD #1 Deadpool party variant while supplies last!
Get first crack at purchasing all the exclusive limited edition X-MEN GOLD #1 variants!
Save 20% off on ALL X-MEN and X-MEN-related graphic novels!

Quantum Teens are Go Signing
March 11, 2017

Guest: Eryk Donovan

11AM-1PM

FIRST 20 IN LINE RECEIVE A FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!

We're huge fans of BLACK MASK COMICS, and pretty much everything they put out -- we usually find ourselves totally loving.

One of our favorite new series of 2016 was the incredible KIM & KIM, and when we saw that KIM & KIM writer Magdalene Visaggio had a brand new series on the way from BLACK MASK with QUANTUM TEENS ARE GO, we wanted to really kick it off big!

So, that's exactly why we're doing a totally rock-n-roll signing event for the debut issue on 3/11/17 with Magdalene and Quantum Teens artist Eryk Donovan (who's wowed us on books like MEMETIC / COGNETIC and CONSTANTINE!)!

LOGAN DAY
March 3, 2017

Join us on Friday 3/3/17 as we celebrate the release of one of our most anticipated comic book movies this year: LOGAN!

Seriously, we are totally amped about this - and to celebrate, we've put together a killer event on Friday 3/3/17 to give you a reason to celebrate with us!

From 11AM to 9PM on Friday, the day of release for the LOGAN film, we'll be giving out LOGAN Slash-Packs with ANY purchase of WOLVERINE or X-23 graphic novels, t-shirts, statues or toys!

Each Slash-Pack has a few of our favorite DEADPOOL comics in 'em, along with a couple of randomly inserted surprises into a few select PoolPaks!

In addition, we'll be giving everyone who comes in that day a raffle ticket to be entered into a prize drawing for a special WOLVERINE PRIZE PACKAGE!

Annnnnd, then, finally if you show up in WOLVERINE or X-23 cosplay (or any character related to the world of LOGAN / WOLVERINE) - we'll hook you up with a copy of ALL NEW WOLVERINE #1 featuring X-23... for FREE!

JLA Rebirth #1 Launch Signing w/ Steve Orlando
Feb. 11, 2017

Guest: Steve Orlando

11AM-1PM

The DC Rebirth has been one of the coolest things to hit comics in the last few years, and we're loving the direction things have been heading as JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD kicks into high gear!

And, in the wake of JL VS. SUICIDE SQUAD, we're going to be getting a few new REBIRTH titles, and guess what: the JUSTICE LEAGUE is expanding into much more hard-hitting territory with the new JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA title, featuring a line-up of renegade heroes and notorious anti-heroes to tackle some of the most deadly threats to face the DCU.

We're so stoked about this new series that we've put together a special launch signing event with series writer, STEVE ORLANDO, who many of you already know from his incredible work on DC Rebirth's SUPERGIRL and MIDNIGHT AND APOLLO!

Be One Of The First 20 In Line & Get A FREE Gift Limited To This Event!

We know you guys and gals love lining up early, and having fun waiting to meet your favorite creators, and we like encouraging the totally fun and totally rad community vibe it brings.

So, we've put together a really cool free giveaway for the first 20 of you who line up for our big signing with STEVE ORLANDO!

Image Comics Day 25th Anniversary Celebration
Feb. 1, 2017

We think it’s pretty obvious, Third Eye Faithful, that Image Comics means a lot to us.

Seriously: we opened our doors at Third Eye in 2008, and that was right when Image began to usher in what has really been a new golden age of comic storytelling.

There’s been a ton of great comic books from all publishers, but we really do give IMAGE credit for bringing us the breadth of amazing genres and quality works that you find all over our shelves today.

So, when we saw that Image wanted us to give them a hand celebrating their 25th anniversary with a special IMAGE DAY event — we were more than happy to oblige!

We’ve put together a super fun IMAGE DAY for you all, with some special sales on IMAGE graphic novels, a couple of INCREDIBLE creator signings, and a very special 25th Anniversary freebie that you can snag just by visiting us on 2/1/17!

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad Signing
Jan. 28, 2017

Guest: Joshua Williamson

Third Eye Faithful, we gotta tell you: there’s nothing that we love more than starting off a New Year with one of our bigger-than-life in-store signing events, and this year — we’re bringing you one of our biggest yet with special guest JOSHUA WILLIAMSON!

Many of you may know Josh from his incredible work on DC Rebirth’s FLASH series which we’ve seen stay at the top of everyone’s list of favorite REBIRTH reads since its launch!

But, there’s also a ton of you here who know Josh from his other work on incredible series like BIRTHRIGHT and NAILBITER for Image Comics, along with many others!

So, when we saw that Josh would be handling writing chores on the first real big DC COMICS event since their amazing FLASHPOINT mini-series that gave birth to NEW 52… well, hot damn, we had to put together an extra-special event to celebrate.

Justice League vs. Suicide Squad is set to be a mini-series like no other, and definitely harkens back to big events like FLASHPOINT, BLACKEST NIGHT, and INFINITE CRISIS, and just like FLASHPOINT brought us REBIRTH, JUSTICE LEAGUE VS. SUICIDE SQUAD will be establishing the return of the REBIRTH world.. and paving the way for everything to come in 2017.

In other words: if you read ANY DC Comics — you’re gonna wanna be reading JL. vs Suicide Squad, just trust us!

Sweet Competition Book Signing
Jan. 21, 2017

Third Eye Faithful, there’s two things we absolutely love here at Third Eye: getting kids into reading and supporting local talent.

So, when the opportunity to host Liz & Jimmy Reed, the creators of the totally amazing CUDDLES & RAGE Webcomic, for a signing of their new picture book, SWEET COMPETITION, came up -w e totally jumped at it!

We’d be honored to have you come out & check out Jimmy and Liz’s incredibly sweet and totally adorable picture book that’s perfect for both your Third Eye juniors at home, and for yourself as well!

WHAT’S THE SCOOP ON SWEET COMPETITION?

We know that you love sharing your Third Eye experience with your little ones, and as you can probably tell from our huge all ages section, we’re all about seeing kids get into reading!

This is why we’re totally stoked about SWEET COMPETITION, and highly recommend you check out a copy this weekend at our signing with Liz & Jimmy!

What’s it all about? Liz and Jimmy Reed, the creators of the “Cuddles and Rage” webcomic, have whipped up a truly delectable picture book debut featuring the antics of competitive twin cherries who will do anything to outsweet…er, outsmart one another!

For this pair of twin cherries, everything is a competition. If Girl Cherry can swing higher, Boy Cherry will boast that he can swing lower. If one is smarter, then the other is cooler.

So when they enter a contest to build the best dessert ever, they immediately pit themselves against each other.

But when you’re attached at the stem, there’s only so much you can do on your own.

Things could be easy as pie—so to speak—if they put aside their differences and join forces. Will Boy Cherry and Girl Cherry cream the competition by working together…or will one try to be the cherry on top?

With loveable characters and laugh-out-loud situations, Sweet Competition is the perfect addition to any child’s bookshelf. After all, there’s always room for dessert!

WWE #1 Signing w/ Dennis Hopeless & Jerry Gaylord
Jan. 14, 2017

Guests: Dennis Hopeless, Jerry Gaylord

You may or may not know this, but we’re all pretty huge pro-wrestling fans at Third Eye, and when we saw that one of our favorite comic publishers, BOOM STUDIOS, was going to be collaborating with WWE to bring their world to comics — we knew we had to do something special to celebrate!

So, we’ve put together a HUGE WWE #1 Release signing with series writer Dennis Hopeless (SPIDER-WOMAN, ALL NEW X-MEN) and Third Eye variant artist Jerry Gaylord (FANBOYS VS ZOMBIES, MIGHTY MORPHIN POWER RANGERS) to kick things off in true Third Eye style!

We’re super stoked to be having both of these guys here to help us kick off the new WWE comic — which looks absolutely killer, and we really hope you’ll come out and join the fun with us, Third Eye Faithful!

Inhumans vs. X-Men Signing w/ Charles Soule
Dec. 17, 2016

Guest: Charles Soule

Third Eye Faithful, you know we're HUGE fans of writer CHARLES SOULE, right? So, then it sould be no surprise that we're absolutely stoked to see him as one of the architects of Marvel's biggest move in ages: the grand return of the X-Men, and the future of Marvel's most exciting corner of their universe: the Inhumans!

The incredible DEATH OF X mini-series has had us on the edge of our seats, and if you're not reading it yet - we highly recommend you swing by the shop and get caught up on all the issues out so far... 'cause it's REALLY good, and it's literally just a taste of what's to come in the upcoming IvX mini-series that literally reshapes the future of the X-Men and the Inhumans in the MARVEL U.

All that stuff that you've been reading about X-Men Blue and X-Men Gold? It all begins here!

And, guess what... we were lucky enough to have a superstar creator like Charles join us to help kick off IvX in a truly big way. That's right - Charles will be joining us on Saturday 12/17/16 -- just in time for the holidays -- to sign your copies of IvX, along with all of his other projects (and as one of the most prolific, and talented guys in comics today - that's a lot of good stuff for you to get signed!)

Guest: Joe Harris

Writer Joe Harris (X-FILES, GREAT PACIFIC, SNOWFALL) appears at Third Eye Comics on Wednesday, December 14, 2016 at 6:00 PM to sign ROCKSTARS#1 from Image Comics!

We’re proud to say we were a part of the very first Small Business Saturday ever a few years back in 2010, and we’re totally pumped to be celebrating the day again this November!

After nearly 9 years of existence, Third Eye is STILL independently owned and operated, and we’re extremely proud of the fact. No matter how much we grow as a company, we still consider ourselves to be a locally operated, independently owned business that values the comic & fan community of Maryland & DC more than anything else.

As such, a day like SMALL BUSINESS SATURDAY is extra-special for us, because it’s a celebration of ALL the independently owned small businesses that help make each and every town and city unique. Whether it’s your favorite local diner, or your friendly neighborhood Third Eye Comics — it’s vital to have unique, and interesting places for people to have experiences and build relationships.

So, we’d be so honored if you guys would join us for Small Business Saturday to celebrate just how awesome small businesses are!

This means that not only are you getting it in your hands, and reading it the day it comes out -- but, you're also sharing the experience with tons of other Third Eye Faithful -- and, getting the chance to Instagram and tweet the heck out of your signed copies to the rest of the world. :)

CHAMPIONS #1 LAUNCH PARTY

With a dynamite creative team of MARK WAID (KINGDOM COME, DAREDEVIL) and HUMBERTO RAMOS (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN), and the designation of the book being GROUND ZERO for all things MARVEL UNIVERSE going into 2017 — CHAMPIONS #1 is set to be a HUGE release this Fall, and we want to make sure you get on board at the start, Third Eye Faithful!

In fact, we’re so pumped that we put together a special in-store signing event with SHADE THE CHANGING GIRL artist MARLEY ZARCONE!

Marley is an incredibly talented comic book artist, and we’ve loved her past work on projects like EFFIGY and FORGETLESS, so we’re pretty darn pumped to see her handling the art on SHADE!

Guest: Steve Orlando

We’re LOVING everything about DC Comics’s big DC REBIRTH initiative, and one of the series we’re most excited about is the new SUPERGIRL series that begins with SUPERGIRL REBIRTH #1 on 8/17/16!

This killer new series features one of comics fastest rising superstars, STEVE ORLANDO, who many of you remember from wowing you last year on his incredible MIDNIGHTER series for DC COMICS, along with his collaborative work on BATMAN AND ROBIN ETERNAL!

Now, Steve is bringing the Girl of Steel to the center-stage, and we cannot wait to read it!

Everything we’ve seen about the series practically explodes with pure raw DC Comics energy, capturing the kind of quirky fun of Kryptonian werewolves, the sinister menace of Cyborg Supermen, and much more into one stunning read.

Featuring artwork by the very talented Emanuela Lupacchino, be on the look out for SUPERGIRL REBIRTH to be one of this Summer’s biggest REBIRTH hits!

And, because we’re so darn excited about the book, we’ve put together a stellar signing event with the one and only STEVE ORLANDO to help kick the series off in true Third Eye style! So, read on, Third Eye Faithful, and get stoked!

Thief of Thieves Signing w/ Shawn Martinbrough
July 2, 2016

Guest: Shawn Martinbrough

So, we gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful: we’re huge, huge fans of artist SHAWN MARTINBROUGH. His noir-inspired sequential art is some of the best in the biz, and whether it’s his classic work with GREG RUCKA (WONDER WOMAN, LAZARUS) on DETECTIVE COMICS, his incredible BLACK PANTHER MOST DANGEROUS MAN ALIVE work, or his current project, THIEF OF THIEVES, Shawn’s work is top notch all the way through.

So, when the opportunity to host Shawn at Third Eye came up, we knew we had to jump at it, and we’re totally stoked that we did!

We’d love for you all to come out, and make Shawn’s first time signing at the Third Eye mothership an awesome time, and plus: many of you already know, THIEF OF THIEVES is INCREDIBLE, and getting a chance to meet the man who helps bring it to life is a BIG deal!

INDOCTRINATION #1 LAUNCH SIGNING W/ MICHAEL MORECI
June 25, 2016

Guest: Michael Moreci

11AM-1PM

FIRST 20 IN LINE GET A FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!

We've loved the work that writer MICHAEL MORECI has done on books like ROCHE LIMIT and BURNING FIELDS, so when we saw he had an incredible new series on the way from rising star indie publisher Z2 COMICS, we knew we had to do something special to kick it off!

What's INDOCTRINATION all about?
This incredible new series blends the rural chills of TRUE DETECTIVE with the international intrigue of HOMELAND to make for one heck of a read.

In INDOCTRINATION, the question is asked: How do you kill an idea?

Across the dusty plains of America's southwest, a deadly storm is brewing.

A string of murders portend the sinister designs of an infamous terrorist to bring about the end times.

Two FBI agents have heeded the signs, and only their rogue actions, aided by a potentially untrustworthy expatriate with deep ties to the terrorist, can push this darkness back. Indoctrination explores America's terrifying underbelly-of death cults and sleeper cells, serial killers and apocalyptic nightmares.

Other Projects by MICHAEL MORECI
One of our favorites by Mike is the incredible sci-fi epic, ROCHE LIMIT, and we'll have plenty of both the trade paperbacks and single issues for you to check out and get signed!

Twenty years after promising to lead mankind to its destiny in the stars, billionaire Langford Skaargard’s dream of cosmic exploration is NO MORE!

Roche Limit, a colony situated on the cusp of a mysterious energy anomaly, is a melting pot of crime and terrible secrets!

When Bekkah Hudson goes missing, the search to find her will plunge her sister and a cadre of the colony’s underworld figures into an odyssey that reveals a very grim future for mankind!

The first TPB is only $9.99, and collects the entire first mini-series!

BURNING FIELDS, which reads like a mix of ZERO DARK THIRTY and John Carpenter’s THE THING, is another by Mike that we absolutely love!

Meet Dana Atkinson, a dishonorably discharged army investigator, who is pulled back to the Middle East when a group of American oil technicians disappear under bizarre circumstances.

With the help of an Iraqi investigator, what Dana discovers is unimaginable: a series of unusual incidents at the drill site that lead her and her unlikely ally to discover a mythic evil that has been released upon the world, one that threatens both the lives of the entire region and the fragile peace that barely exists.

We'll have plenty of the BURNING FIELDS graphic novel in stock for you to scoop and get signed!

Be One Of The First 20 In Line & Get A FREE Gift Limited To This Event!
We know you guys and gals love lining up early, and having fun waiting to meet your favorite creators, and we like encouraging the totally fun and totally rad community vibe it brings.

So, we've put together a really cool free giveaway for the first 20 of you who arrive early and line up for our signing with MICHAEL MORECI!

BATMAN REBIRTH SIGNING W/ TOM KING
June 18, 2016

Guest: Tom King

Third Eye Faithful: you’ve probably heard – we are totally stoked about DC Comics’s upcoming DC REBIRTH initiative, which brings the biggest change the publisher has seen since the NEW 52 began. Not a reboot, but instead a RETURN to the universe you know and love.

And, one of the brightest shining stars in their line-up has got to be Tom King and David Finch’s upcoming BATMAN ongoing series.

Picking up hot on the heels of the legendary SCOTT SNYDER & GREG CAPULLO run, TOM KING is definitely the best candidate we could think of to take the reigns on what is arguably DC Comics’s flagship title.

And, folks, from the little bit we’ve seen on it so far — it looks INCREDIBLE. We are so amped about this!

So, in celebration, we’re hosting a HUGE signing with TOM KING on Saturday 6/18/16, where he’ll not only be signing his DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH BATMAN #1 one-shot and of course, issue #1 of his brand new ongoing BATMAN series, but also his other amazing projects like VISION, SHERIFF OF BABYLON, GRAYSON and OMEGA MEN!

THE REVISIONIST #1 SIGNING W/ FRANK BARBIERE & GARRY BROWN
June 11, 2016

Guests: Garry Brown, Frank J. Barbiere

11AM-1PM

FIRST 20 IN LINE RECEIVE A SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!

By now, you may have already realized, that we're all pretty big fans of writer FRANK BARBIERE, and his killer work on series like FIVE GHOSTS, BROKEN WORLD, and many others, and when we saw that he was teaming up with the very talented GARRY BROWN who just wowed the heck out of you recently with his new IMAGE COMICS series BLACK ROAD... we knew we had to do something cool for their new project!

Coming out from one of our favorite new publishers to debut in quite some time, AFTERSHOCK COMICS, THE REVISIONIST is one of the most stunning releases we've seen from AFTERSHOCK yet.

The pure passion and energy that's contained in this project is off-the-charts, and we think this may be the most exciting launch we've seen from Frank since his smash hit, FIVE GHOSTS.
Read on, Third Eye Faithful, and find out why we're stoked to have these guys out!

What's REVISIONIST all about?
In this new series, the question is asked: How far would you go to save reality? Martin Monroe is The Revisionist-a time-traveling assassin tasked with repairing our fractured timeline.

Forced to place his trust in his estranged father, Martin will have to overcome his troubled past to save the future-but can he live with his decisions?

Imagine the time-jumping fun and awesomeness of DOCTOR WHO blended with the darker, surreal edge of cult movies like TIME AFTER TIME, and combine that with the best gritty hard-edged tales of assassins like THE PROFESSIONAL and JOHN WICK. That sums up how the REVISIONIST reads to us.

Other Projects by FRANK & GARRY
So, many of you already know about the awesomeness of FIVE GHOSTS, but for those of you who don't.. we're gonna lay it on ya!

We’re huge fans of the work that Frank Barbiere has done, especially his incredible IMAGE COMICS series, FIVE GHOSTS, which is on its way to your TV screen VERY soon!

What’s the scoop on it? After a tragic encounter with an artifact known as the DREAMSTONE, infamous treasure hunter FABIAN GRAY was possessed by five literary ghosts and has been granted access to their unique abilities.

Now, we join creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham for the most exciting debut of 2013 as they introduce you to a unique world full of action, black magic, exotic locales, and literary allusion!

Folks: this book takes so many of our favorite things, and rolls them into one slick package. There’s the occult intrigue of series like HELLBOY and THE SANDMAN. There’s the pulpy treasure hunter aspect that’s not far removed from the UNCHARTED games. There’s the dynamic of a guy carrying around five ghosts with him; and being able to access their unique abilities.

Five Ghosts: the Haunting of Fabian Gray is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot recommend it enough.

We have all 3 volumes of FIVE GHOSTS available in trade paperback, as well as the single issues of 1-17 to get you on board with your preferred format!

One of the most exciting new IMAGE COMICS series to debut this Spring has gotta be BLACK ROAD.

Meet Magnus the Black, neither clean nor sober, neither Christian nor Pagan, but a man true to his word. When a ranking official under his care is brutally murdered, he’s prepared to hunt the killers to the frozen tip of Norway, religious war be damned.

If the samurai genre had LONE WOLF AND CUB, if the Western genre had THE GOOD, THE BAD and the UGLY, then the Viking genre now has BLACK ROAD. Do not miss it!

Be One Of The First 20 In Line & Get A FREE Gift Limited To This Event!
We know you guys and gals love lining up early, and having fun waiting to meet your favorite creators, and we like encouraging the totally fun and totally rad community vibe it brings.

So, we've put together a really cool free giveaway for the first 20 of you who arrive early and line up for our signing with Frank & Garry.

Civil War II #1 Launch Party
June 1, 2016

FIRST 10 IN LINE RECEIVE A SPECIAL THIRD EYE x CIVIL WAR GRAB BAG!

Third Eye Faithful, are you ready for the biggest event storyline to hit MARVEL COMICS yet?

That's right, beginning this FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, CIVIL WAR II erupts into the MARVEL UNIVERSE, and we cannot wait!

And, then, one month later, in June, the series officially begins, and you KNOW we had to do something HUGE to celebrate, and that's why we're telling you right now: our CIVIL WAR II Launch Party is going to be off-the-chain!

THE BIGGEST MARVEL COMICS STORYLINE.. EVER.. BEGINS ON WEDNESDAY 6/1/16!
So, there's no secret that CIVIL WAR II is pretty much the biggest MARVEL COMICS storyline...like, ever.

Seriously: the original CIVIL WAR captivated so many of us when it first came out, and there really has not been a storyline since that's reached that same level of magnitude.

And, honestly, we think that the only thing that can top the amazing tale of the original CIVIL WAR is this summer's huge sequel, CIVIL WAR II!

If CIVIL WAR was the beginning point for the modern day MARVEL UNIVERSE, and SECRET WARS was kind of the endpoint of nearly 2 decades of world building, then CIVIL WAR II is THE definitive "starting point" for the status quo of the MARVEL UNIVERSE into the 2020s and beyond.

Seriously: the effects of the original CIVIL WAR have been rippling through MARVEL to this day, and its impact is legendary, so we can only imagine what's to come with this year's CIVIL WAR II!

Want more info on CIVIL WAR? Click here to read up with our Third Eye Guide to CIVIL WAR!

CIVIL WAR II #1 releases on 6/1/16 -- and Third Eye is here to help you celebrate!

DC UNIVERSE REBIRTH MIDNIGHT RELEASE PARTY
May 25, 2016

Third Eye Faithful, maybe it’s because we came up during a time period when DC Comics was delivering some of it’s finest moments — aka the late ’90s and early ’00s — aka the era of Connor Hawke, Wally West, Green Lantern Rebirth, Infinite Crisis, Identity Crisis, Grant Morrison’s JLA, and so much more… or, maybe it’s because we just plain love the heck out of the DC Universe icons… either way, we are totally thrilled and stoked for DCU Rebirth!

In fact, you can read all about how we feel about REBIRTH, as well as WHAT Rebirth is right here.

And, folks, because we’re so darn excited, we’ve decided to work in collaboration with DC Comics to host a very special MIDNIGHT RELEASE of DC COMICS REBIRTH #1!

That’s right – the comic that is going to literally BLOW YOUR MINDS – will be available for you to read before the internet spoilers the heck out of it!

In fact, we’re even going to provide you with your own flashlights to share with each other to hang out, and read these bad boys right after you buy them before you drive home! Seriously, we have a big bucket of flashlights waiting for you.

It’s that time of year again, Third Eye Faithful….. FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! The most important day on ANY comic fan’s calendar, and once again, we’re bringing you the biggest, and the best FREE COMIC BOOK DAY event in the country!

It’s no surprise that this is our favorite day of the year, heck, it’s the freakin’ BIRTHDAY of THIRD EYE COMICS!

That’s right: on the first Saturday in May of 2008.. Third Eye opened its doors in the tiny little first shop we started in.

Now, 8 years later, we’re proud of all the cool stuff that the shop has done, but even more so: we’re proud of what the shop means to YOU.

And, don’t forget.. FCBD 5/7/16 is also the official start of FREE COMIC BOOK MAY! That’s right, we’ll be handing out our FCBMay checkcards that you can bring back every Saturday in May to get a FREE comic tailored to a theme or genre… and guess what: if you fill that checkcard up by the end of May, you can bring it in on 5/28 to turn it in for a POUND OF COMICS!

4 Kids Walk Into A Bank #1 Day-1 Release Signing w/ MATTHEW ROSENBERG (We Can Never Go Home) & TYLER BOSS
April 27, 2016

Guest: Matthew Rosenberg

FIRST 20 IN LINE RECEIVE A SPECIAL GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT
***********************************************************************

What’s a KEEP COMICS WEIRD signing event? Third Eye Faithful, if there’s one thing that we think needs to be celebrated in the fullest is the fact that comics are a truly unique medium where you can do just about anything.

The raw creativity, and pure imagination that can only be found in comics is really special, and it remains the last form of entertainment that hasn’t been completely processed and formulated to the degree that many other have.

And, we’re not only happy about that, but we’re proud of that, and proud to be a part of it!

Whenever we host one of our in-store events that really celebrates big, crazy ideas that could only be told in comics — we’ll be adding the banner of it being a KEEP COMICS WEIRD signing, where we’ll be giving out special KEEP COMICS WEIRD badges, and other cool swag!

The output of indie comics upstart studio BLACK MASK totally embodies the ethos of what KEEP COMICS WEIRD is all about: it’s unique, it’s fresh, it’s cutting edge, and it’s the kind of storytelling that you could find being born in the pages of comic books.

Just like trend-setters like STRAY BULLETS, CRIMINAL, and TRANSMETROPOLITAN fused traditional genres of weird fiction like noir and science fiction with modern ideas, BLACK MASK is doing the same thing with killer books like WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, YOUNG TERRORISTS, and now 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK!

dayone1A Third Eye DAY ONE Signing Event!
What’s a DAY ONE Signing Event? Simply put: it’s when we host a creator to launch a title on the same day of release that the book comes out.

This means that not only are you getting it in your hands, and reading it the day it comes out — but, you’re also sharing the experience with tons of other Third Eye Faithful — and, getting the chance to Instagram and tweet the heck out of your signed copies to the rest of the world. :)

Our DAY ONE signing events have a more intimate vibe, where you’re able to spend a little more time asking questions of your favorite creators, and getting to share your excitement for their books!

WHAT’S 4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK ALL ABOUT?
4 KIDS WALK INTO A BANK is one of our most anticipated new releases of 2016, and Third Eye Faithful, by the time you finish hearing what we have to say about it, it’s going to be one of your’s as well!

This killer new 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.

OTHER PROJECTS BY MATT & TYLER!
So, many of you may already be well aware, but Matthew Rosenberg is also the writer of last year’s indie mega-hit WE CAN NEVER GO HOME, a comic that took us all by storm here at Third Eye, and we could not get enough of.

Now available in graphic novel for just 9.99, WE CAN NEVER GO HOME is the stunning story of two teenagers, a mixtape, a stolen car, a fully loaded .45 pistol, strange abilities, dead drug dealers, and their money.

A dark and modern story about getting lost and finding yourself on the backroads of America.

Imagine X-MEN meets Quentin Tarantino’s TRUE ROMANCE.

Never read it? We’ve got the back issues and the graphic novel with issues 1-5 in stock now to get you up to speed for just $9.99, so you can get ’em signed!

Folks, the art on 4KWIAB is AWESOME, and by the time this series hits issue #2, everyone’s going to be talking about Tyler Boss’s killer style.

And, guess what: Tyler also provided the totally excellent inks for the hit IMAGE series LAZARUS, which we know many of you are big fans of.

Never read LAZARUS? So, here’s the scoop: in the future, banks control everything, as opposed to governments, and the rich and powerful have agents that do all the things they’d never want to do.

Meet Forever Carlyle, the Lazarus of the Carlyle Family. This is her story.

Snag the first trade for $9.99 and get it signed by Tyler at our 4KWIAB signing event!

Image Comics SNOWFALL Signing with JOE HARRIS
April 23, 2016

Guest: Joe Harris

We’ve been big fans of writer Joe Harris’s work for a while now, and when we saw the first glimpses of his brand new IMAGE COMICS series, SNOWFALL, we pretty much knew that he had a major hit on his hands!

This book is SO freakin’ cool, and pretty much embodies everything we love about IMAGE and all the great creator-owned work coming out of the publisher these days!

In fact, we’re so excited for SNOWFALL that we invited Joe out to the shop to do a special signing for it this April, so read on, Third Eye Faithful, and find out why you gotta check this one out!

STAR WARS: POE DAMERON #1 Launch Party
April 16, 2016

Guest: Charles Soule

11AM-9PM

Third Eye Faithful, I can not even begin to tell you how much we've loved Marvel's incredible STAR WARS line of comics, and as huge fans of last year's THE FORCE AWAKENS, we are totally pumped to see the very first of their CANON and IN-CONTINUITY Star Wars line that touches on the world of EPISODE VII!

THE FIRST MARVEL COMICS RIFF ON THE FORCE AWAKENS ARRIVES THIS APRIL!

A Third Eye DAY ONE Signing Event!
What's a DAY ONE Signing Event? Simply put: it's when we host a creator to launch a title on the same day of release that the book comes out.

This means that not only are you getting it in your hands, and reading it the day it comes out -- but, you're also sharing the experience with tons of other Third Eye Faithful -- and, getting the chance to Instagram and tweet the heck out of your signed copies to the rest of the world. :)

Our DAY ONE signing events have a more intimate vibe, where you're able to spend a little more time asking questions of your favorite creators, and getting to share your excitement for their books!

What's HEARTTHROB all about?
When we saw the first glimpses of this book, we knew it: we had to put together a killer signing event with the folks behind it, and Third Eye Faithful, we knew we had to give you the very first crack at meeting creators Christopher Sebela, Robert Wilson IV, and Nick Filardi and getting YOUR copy of HEATTHROB #1 signed!

This new series about bank heists and thieving hearts from writer Christopher Sebela (Welcome Back), artist Robert Wilson IV (Bitch Planet), and colorist Nick Filardi (Powers). Callie Boudreau hasn't been herself lately.

After a lifetime sidelined by illness, she's rescued by a miracle cure in the form of heart transplant surgery, but the life she returns to doesn't fit her anymore.

Besides the morally questionable job, the crappy boyfriend and the crippling hospital bills, Callie finds herself developing new tastes, unfamiliar urges and a mouth like a sailor. As she balances what she has to do with what she wants to do, a mystery man shows up to teach her that instead of waiting for her new life, she should go out and steal it.

Make sure you pop by on 4/13/16, and check it out!

REVENGER x COPRA Signing with MICHEL FIFFE & CHARLES FORSMAN
April 9, 2016

Guests: Michel Fiffe, Charles Forsman

COPRA and REVENGER are both comics that could only be born in the hearts of individuals who have grown up loving the medium of comics. They are the kind of comics that come around once in a generation, and the kind that you'll still be seeing applauded and recommended years down the line.

Just like LOVE AND ROCKETS or CEREBUS in the '80s, SIN CITY or BONE in the '90s, SCOTT PILGRIM or WALKING DEAD in the '00s, COPRA and REVENGER channel a kind of raw energy that can only be found in comic books.

And, just like we told you "Hey, this WALKING DEAD book is pretty darn awesome" years before it became what it is today - we're telling you now that you need to be reading Copra and Revenger!

Avengers Stand Off Launch Party
March 2, 2016

************************************************************************
11AM-9PM
************************************************************************

The Third Eye Guide to AVENGERS: STAND-OFF!

The event that paves the way for Marvel's highly anticipated CIVIL WAR 2 begins this March! Find out how you can celebrate at our official launch party, and read up on how to collect the entire crossover at Third Eye!

So, here's the deal, Third Eye Faithful: Marvel is putting out some really killer titles in 2016, and we've been loving all of the ALL NEW ALL DIFFERENT titles that have been hitting the shelves since last Fall!

In fact, we'd go as far as to say that the MARVEL UNIVERSE is the most exciting it has been in some time, and we're pretty pumped to see what's in store in 2016 for Earth's Mightiest Heroes!

A smaller, tighter-knit event than the over-arching SECRET WARS, or INFINTIY, AVENGERS: STANDOFF is a must-read that pretty much sets the stage for everything to come this Summer in the Marvel Universe, including the arrival of CIVIL WAR 2 in May!

What's AVENGERS: STAND OFF about?
Pleasant Hill looks like the perfect small-town community -- but underneath the surface, a deadly secret lurks. One so explosive it will draw estranged allies Steve Rogers and Sam Wilson back together to save a friend in danger and put things right.

But when the combined might of the Captain Americas isn't enough, whom do they call? In the face of unspeakable evil, it's time for the Avengers to Assemble like never before! The blockbuster spring AVENGERS event starts right here!

As we said before, it's a much smaller, tighter-knit crossover than the big blockbuster-style ones like SECRET WARS where every Marvel book gets touched.

This is very much rooted in the AVENGERS, and the impacts of how STANDOFF ends will ripple out into the rest of the Marvel Universe, inevitably leading into the highly anticipated SECRET WARS!

Set in a very mysterious town known as Pleasant Hill, NICK SPENCER, the writer of IMAGE COMICS hit series MORNING GLORIES, is no stranger to writing small town mysteries, and in STANDOFF, he delivers a much more personal level to the destruction our favorite Marvel heroes are used to seeing: a very human, in-their-face take that captivates us in a big way!

There's a ton of secrets that will literally devastate much of what we know about certain Marvel characters buried deep beneath the normalcy of PLEASANT HILL, and we cannot wait to see how it plays out!

1smallavstandoffwelcomeWhere does AVENGERS: STAND OFF Begin?
If you're amped about AVENGERS: STAND OFF like we are, then make sure you pick up AVENGERS: STAND OFF WELCOME TO PLEASANT HILL #1, which is the official PRELUDE to the STANDOFF event!

This special one-shot kicks everything off as it takes you deep into the friendly small town of Pleasant Hill -- where it's better to hide your true thoughts and opinions, than to show them in risk of ruining the perfect community that the residents of Pleasant Hill have built.

An eerie, chilling journey into the MARVEL UNIVERSE, make sure you scoop AVENGERS: STANDOFF WELCOME TO PLEASANT HILL #1 on Wednesday 2/17/16!

Make sure to join us from 11am-9pm on Wednesday 3/2/16 to celebrate the official launch of AVENGERS STAND OFF, and score a ton of cool stuff in the process, like:

AVENGERS STAND OFF: Build Your Own Captain America Kits (free with purchase of STAND OFF ALPHA #1 while supplies last!)

AVENGERS STAND OFF Exclusive GWENPOOL Party Variants (pictured to the right) - supplies are limited, get here early to purchase your's!

AVENGERS STAND OFF Gwenpool Lithographs (while supplies last, with purchase of AVENGERS STAND OFF ALPHA #1!)

March 14, 2015

Guest: Jerry Gaylord

11AM-1PM
******************************************************************
FIRST 20 IN LINE RECEIVE A SPECIAL FREE GIFT!
******************************************************************

OK, Third Eye Faithful, to kick off the Spring season good and right, we've put together one heck of an awesome signing with one of our favorite rising stars of the comic industry: JERRY GAYLORD!

Jerry has done incredible work on series like FANBOYS VS ZOMBIES, LOKI RAGNAROK AND ROLL and more, and now he's about to totally wow the heck out of everyone with his new BOOM! Studios series, BILL AND TED'S MOST TRIUMPHANT RETURN!

Now, there's no denying, Third Eye Faithful, we're HUGE fans of the Wyld Stallyns, and we are so stoked to see them returning to comics, that it's ridiculous.

So, when we saw Jerry was going to be lending his fantastic art chops to the series, we knew we had to get him in the shop to do a big signing for the book!

So, read on, Third Eye Faithful, and get pumped for this killer signing which kicks off our Spring event schedule!

The Wyld Stallyns Return!
Boom Studios has done an INCREDIBLE job with their reviving of cult favorites like ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, so when we saw they'd be bringing back the Wyld Stallyns, we knew we were in for a treat!

Picking up immediately where the second Bill and Ted film leaves off, Brian Lynch and Jerry Gaylord bring you all the zany humor, awesome characters, and historical science fiction that you know and love from the Bill and Ted flicks.

Following the time-traveling historic epic of Excellent Adventure and the turbulent life and death of Bogus Journey, Bill and Ted must now fulfill their destiny as the inspiration for galactic harmony!

How can someone hate the Wyld Stallyns as much as the evil Chuck De Nomolos? With the power of time travel, Bill and Ted set their sights on turning a young 27th-century Nomolos' non-nonheinhous attitude into something most outstanding and metal!

Bill & Ted Cosplay Contest! Win a MOST EXCELLENT Bill & Ted Prize Pack!
We're so stoked about this new BILL AND TED comic that we had to do something extra special for the event, but, Third Eye Faithful, we need your help.

We need YOU to put together your best Bill and Ted cosplays (we'll even allow side characters like the Grim Reaper!), and rock 'em to our signing.

We'll take photos of everyone who attends in cosplay as a Bill and Ted character, and post them to our FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM.

And, one lucky pair of contestants, will be chosen as the winners of our Bill & Ted Cosplay Contest!

Check out FANBOYS VS ZOMBIES by JERRY GAYLORD!
One of our favorite things Jerry has done is FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES, which takes the idea of a zombie outbreak happening AT SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON and runs with it like there's no tomorrow.

Is a horde of starving brain-eaters any match against reflexes battle-hardened by video games, nerves tested by horror flicks, and courage crystallized by comic books?

It's everything we love and then some, and we've got the full series available in graphic novel for you to check out at our Bill and Ted signing!

Be One of the First 20 in Line & Get a FREE Gift!

You guys know we love it when you line up early, have fun with each other, and help us build the community that we call Third Eye Faithful, so of course, we've put together a very cool free giveaway to hook you up with!

And, hey, it's MARCH! Spring is here! What better way to celebrate than lining up bright and early without several layers of winter clothing?

TOE TAG RIOT RELEASE PARTY & SIGNING
Jan. 24, 2015

Guests: Sean Von Gorman, Matt Miner

When we first saw pages from TOE TAG RIOT, we knew we had to totally get on board with this one!

A hilarious and gory tongue-in-cheek story, Toe Tag Riot is about a punk rock band cursed to become zombies whenever they perform.

The band goes on a last cross-country tour in search of the cure for their affliction, but being the ethical sometimes-zombie punks that they are, Toe Tag Riot uses their zombie superpowers to rid the world of racists, homophobes, misogynists, and all kinds of other nasty people.

We’re so stoked on TOE TAG RIOT that when the opportunity to have creators Matt Miner and Sean Von Gorman to Third Eye to do a big signing for the book came up, we knew we had to jump on it!

WYTCHES Scott Snyder Signing
Jan. 17, 2015

Guest: Scott Snyder

Third Eye Faithful, get ready: this January, we’re bringing you our biggest in-store signing event in Third Eye history. The one and only Scott Snyder, the uber-talented superstar writer behind Batman: Court of Owls, Batman the Black Mirror, American Vampire, and most recently, the red-hot new IMAGE series WYTCHES, will be making a very special visit to Third Eye!

We are beyond stoked to be hosting Scott at the shop, and we know when many of you guys heard our first announcement of this, you echoed the same excitement in a major way!

And, you guys know why this signing is happening? It’s because of YOU and your enthusiasm for these awesome events we have. Third Eye has a reputation far and wide for providing some of the most fun in-store events in the country, and we could not do it without you guys and the genuine love of the medium each and everyone of you brings with you.

So, we’re going to be pulling out all the stops to make this one extra-special, as we celebrate the SEASON OF THE WYTCH at Third Eye with Scott Snyder.

STAR WARS #1 LAUNCH PARTY
Jan. 14, 2015

It’s been decades since Marvel Comics published STAR WARS comics, and while there’s no doubt that Dark Horse did terrific things with the license, we gotta say: we are so stoked to see Star Wars returning home in their brand new ongoing STAR WARS monthly series.

Written by THOR & SOUTHERN BASTARDS scribe JASON AARON, with art by the uber-talented JOHN CASSADAY (Astonishing X-Men, Planetary), the brand new STAR WARS ongoing brings the greatest space adventure of all time back to Marvel!

In STAR WARS, Luke Skywalker and the ragtag band of rebels fighting against the galactic empire are fresh off their biggest victory yet — the destruction of the DEATH STAR.

But, the Empire’s not toppld yet! Join Luke, Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2, along with the rest of the Rebel Alliance as they strike out for freedom against the evil forces of the Empire!

Picking up immediately after the events of STAR WARS EPISODE IV: A NEW HOPE, Star Wars chronicles the crucial stories that happened in between the films — and with Marvel and Disney having the relationship they do — you can bet that this one is in-canon, and in continuity!

In celebration, we’re going to be hosting a HUGE release party for this book, featuring:

Your first crack at purchasing the rare new variant covers for issue #1!
Meet JOHN MORTON, the actor who portrayed Rebel Gunner Dak Ralter & Boba Fett (during the Bespin scene!) 7PM-8PM!
Your chance to buy the PARTY Exclusive STAR WARS #1 variant featuring the one and only Jaxxon (you know, the bunny guy from the old comics!)

Dec. 13, 2014

Guest: Ray Fawkes

11AM-1PM

************************************************************
FIRST 20 IN LINE RECEIVE A SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!
************************************************************

When we first saw glimpses of CONSTANTINE / BATMAN ETERNAL writer RAY FAWKES'S incredible new IMAGE series, INTERSECT, we knew we were in for a real special treat, and folks, now that it's almost time for it to come out -- we can tell you we were absolutely right.

In INTERSECT, Ray Fawkes brings his signature darkness to IMAGE COMICS, an all-new and shockingly original ongoing horror comic series in the vein of Scott Snyder's WYTCHES.

Bodies shift and merge, warring with themselves. Blood rains from the skies. A child's song translated into toxic, thought destroying whispers. Everything is changing, everything is wrong.

This is the terrifying world of INTERSECT, and we love it!

Eerie, all the way through, INTERSECT is one of the most exciting IMAGE releases of Winter 2014, and we're totally stoked to have Ray joining us to kick it off at Third Eye!

*******************************************************************
We are practically falling out of our chair with excitement as we type up this one, Third Eye Faithful.

In fact, this one is such a big deal, that we had to give you guys at least a month's notice -- so you can make sure you've got the day off to take part in this historic Third Eye signing! :)

Folks, I'll just say it: GEORGE PEREZ is coming to Third Eye. That's right: the legendary artist who helped co-create most of the Teen Titans (like Cyborg, Raven, Starfire, Deathstroke and more!), brought the Multiverse to life with CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS, and helped us really, really hate to love Superboy Prime in FINAL CRISIS LEGION OF THREE WORLDS.

Perez is a true Titan (pun intended) in the world of comics, and his fingerprints have been felt on nearly every aspect of both the Marvel and DC Universes for decades.

Heck, the look and feel of most of the DCU's most iconic characters, like Nightwing, is courtesy of Perez's involvement.

So, when BOOM STUDIOS offered us the chance to host a signing event for George's incredible new BOOM series SIRENS... we jumped so hard at it that we practically knocked ourselves cold hitting our heads on the roof!

So, Third Eye Faithful, here's the thing: we're counting on you guys to make this the BEST stop on George's signing tour. He's going to be hitting a ton of amazing comic shops nationwide in support of SIRENS, and he chose to make his DMV stop Third Eye for a reason -- because you guys are AWESOME.

I know that many of you are long-time fans of the man, but I also know there's some of you who may just be getting into comics -- either way: you have to take this chance to meet a man who has truly defined the look and feel of modern age comics.

SOME OF THE NOTABLE WORKS PEREZ HAS DONE (all in stock now!)

THE INFINITY GAUNTLET
CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS
NEW TEEN TITANS
SUPERMAN NEW 52
WORLDS FINEST NEW 52
HULK THE END (FUTURE IMPERFECT)
FINAL CRISIS LEGION OF THREE WORLDS
INFINITE CRISIS
AVENGERS HEART OF STONE (feat. the first appearance of TASKMASTER!)

and many, many more!

Meet JAY FAERBER & SCOTT GODLEWSKI at our COPPERHEAD #1 Release Party
Sept. 20, 2014

Guests: Jay Faerber, Scott Godlewski

Another amazing new IMAGE series that's going to be dropping this Fall is COPPERHEAD, and folks, if you're a fan of series like SAGA and EAST OF WEST -- then you have got to get this one!

We'll be hosting creators Jay Faerber & Scott Godlewski on Saturday 9/20/14 for a HUGE release party kick-off, so make sure you pop in and get your copy of this red hot new IMAGE series signed by the creative team!

Meet JIM ZUB (SKULLKICKERS) & CHIP ZDARSKY (SEX CRIMINALS) - WAYWARD #1 Launch Party!
Sept. 13, 2014

Guests: Jim Zub, Chip Zdarsky

Third Eye Faithful: we love good comics. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning. It’s what makes us work so hard to bring you the best comic shop experience around. And, it’s what makes us love what we do for a living.

So, when something special comes along, something so unique, and so darn compelling, that it grabs a hold of us and doesn’t let go — then we have to do something big for it.

And, Wayward, is definitely something special. Much like we got a little buzzing in the back of our head, a little turn in our guts, a little crackle of electricity in our fingertips, when we first laid eyes on Brian K. Vaughan’s SAGA, we’re feeling, hearing, and sensing the same kind of raw comic book magic with WAYWARD.

In other words: this is going to be one of the biggest IMAGE Comics titles to release this year, without a doubt, and we are stoked, honored, and absolutely positively flattered to be hosting series writer JIM ZUB, and WAYWARD Third Eye cover artist CHIP ZDARSKY, as guests to help us kick it off in true Third Eye Fashion!

Grayson #2 Release Party with writer TOM KING
Aug. 9, 2014

Third Eye Faithful, you know we’re right there with you when it comes to Dick Grayson being the coolest of the cool in the DC Universe, and when we saw that the events of FOREVER EVIL and FUTURE’S END would be casting Mr. Grayson in a new Post-Nightwing role… well, hot damn, we knew we were in for something awesome!

So, in celebration of the release of GRAYSON #2, we’re going to be hosting series writer, TOM KING, at Third Eye Annapolis, on Saturday 8/9, to kick off the release of Grayson #2 with us!

Tom’s a super-talented writer, whose done incredible work with his novel A ONCE CROWDED SKY, and recently wowed the heck out of us with the big finale issue of Nightwing, NIGHTWING #30.

So, we’re totally honored to have him out to the shop to kick off one of DC’s most anticipated new series of 2014.

What’s the scoop on GRAYSON? Dick Grayson. Former sidekick. Former superhero. Former dead man. And now.. agent of Spyral?

A thrilling new chapter of Dick Grayson’s life begins in this new, ongoing series. It’s a super spy thriller that shocks the heck out of you, and proves one thing: you might think you know Nightwing — but you don’t know Dick.

Get stoked, Third Eye Faithful!

Third Eye Book Club feat. SCALPED
Feb. 16, 2014

**********************************************************
Get 20% OFF Scalped Volume 1 from 1/23 to 2/16 when you mention the Third Eye Book Club at the counter!
**********************************************************
Next month, on Sunday February 16th, we'll be featuring one of our biggest favorites, SCALPED, as the Third Eye Book Club spotlight, and we cannot wait to turn many of you guys onto this incredible crime drama by JASON AARON (the extremely talented writer behind everything from Punisher MAX to THOR: GOD OF THUNDER to the upcoming ORIGINAL SIN Summer event series!)

Scalped is one of those perfect pairings of writer and artist, bringing together the hard-hitting, character-building storytelling of Jason Aaron with the gritty art of R.M Guera. The end result is an intense crime drama that mixes organized crime with current Native American culture.

In SCALPED, Dashiel "Dash" Bad Horse ran away from a life of abject poverty and utter hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation searching for something better. Now, 15 years later, he's back home armed with nothing but an attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on "the Rez" -- short of a glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime.

Is here to set things right, or just to get a piece of the action?

Scalped ran for a total of 10 volumes, and was published by Vertigo, the folks behind Y: THE LAST MAN, PREACHER, THE SANDMAN, and many other greats.

It's a fantastic book, which delivers the same kind of compelling, complex storytelling as the HBO series THE WIRE, with every character having a story to tell, and the good guys and the bad guys switching places throughout the run.

We can't recommend it enough, and we had to spotlight it.

Starting January 23rd, you can get SCALPED for 20% OFF the regular cover price when you mention the Third Eye Book Club at the counter.

THE THIRD EYE MONTHLY BOOK CLUB
Jan. 19, 2014

The STUFF OF LEGEND by Mike Raicht, Brian Smith & Charles Paul Wilson III

with special Q&A with STUFF OF LEGEND publisher, MIKE DEVITO!

A long-time favorite here at Third Eye, STUFF OF LEGEND is a shining example of just what comics can be in the modern era, and we couldn't think of any other better title to kick off the Third Eye Book Club with.

This modern fantasy masterpiece, which is soon to be a major motion picture, is a graphic novel you have got to read -- no matter what you're normally into -- STUFF OF LEGEND will blow you away.

In terms of the storytelling, the artwork, the craftsmanship of the book itself -- all around, this is an amazing piece of work, and we're really excited to have this opportunity to share it with you guys.

What's it all about? Check it out -- As Allied forces fight the enemy on Europe's war-torn beaches, another battle begins in a child's bedroom in Brooklyn when the nightmarish Boogeyman snatches a boy and takes him to the realm of the Dark.

The child's playthings, led by the toy soldier known as the Colonel, band together to stage a daring rescue.

On their perilous mission they will confront the boy's bitter and forgotten toys, as well as betrayal in their own ranks.

The Stuff of Legend is a haunting and ultimately redemptive tale of loyalty, camaraderie, and perseverance.

In short: imagine Toy Story meets Saving Private Ryan if it was directed by Guillermo del Toro. A sweeping, widescreen fantasy saga with artwork that has a very cool, almost storybook feel to it -- STUFF OF LEGEND is a must for anyone who is a fan of series like FABLES, JOE THE BARBARIAN, MOUSE GUARD, BONE, or THE SANDMAN.

Special Q&A With STUFF OF LEGEND Publisher MIKE DEVITO

Joining us during the Book Club will be STUFF OF LEGEND publisher MIKE DEVITO to answer YOUR questions, as well as talk to you guys about Stuff Of Legend, it's future, and the upcoming film!

A Very MARVEL NOW Launch Party
Dec. 24, 2013

***********************************************************
A Very MARVEL NOW Christmas Eve featuring the launch of AVENGERS NOW, and MARVEL NOW WAVE 2!
***********************************************************
10AM-5PM
***********************************************************
In case you hadn't heard, Third Eye Faithful, Marvel is going to be unveiling WAVE 2 of their MARVEL NOW initiative this Winter, and it all begins on Christmas Eve.

If you're not too clear on what MARVEL NOW is, it's basically a way for MARVEL to launch exciting new titles that are accessible for new readers and long-time fans alike to jump on board with.

In other words, you don't have to worry about reading 200 issues of a series just to feel caught up -- but unlike DC New 52, Marvel doesn't reboot it's continuity, it just uses some very smart writing and strong world-building to make the books very easy to jump into.

Want more info on MARVEL NOW & WAVE 2? Go here: http://www.thirdeyecomics.com/?p=3151

Anyways -- we figured, hey, since NEW COMIC DAY just so happens to come a day early this year, and on Christmas Eve, to boot -- your pals at Third Eye are going to hook you up with a little early X-Mas gift in the form of AVENGERS NOW!

As the official flagship title of the MARVEL NOW Wave 2 launch, this is THE perfect starting point for the AVENGERS, and is the jumping on point many of you have been waiting for.

Written by EAST OF WEST / MANHATTAN PROJECTS scribe JONATHAN HICKMAN, and illustrated by THOR: GOD OF THUNDER artist ESAD RIBIC, AVENGERS #24.NOW is #1 for the AVENGERS in MARVEL NOW WAVE 2, and is the perfect place for readers who've never picked up the title to jump on board. No back story necessary.

As Iron Man and Cap put together their ideal AVENGERS team, a runaway planet is on a collision course with Earth -- and a visitor from the future is all that can save the day. But, is he friend or foe? And WHO will the new AVENGERS line-up consist of?

So, what'd we have in store for you?

***********************************************************
Get FREE Marvel NOW Swag -- Posters, Pins & More!

Third Eye Faithful, we've got a huge signing coming up to kick off NOVEMBER for you, and you're going to be totally stoked on this one, we can guarantee it!

One of our favorite creators, Jonathan Luna, who many of you met last year at our signing for STAR BRIGHT AND THE LOOKING GLASS, and many of you also know from modern comics hits like THE SWORD, GIRLS, and ULTRA, is launching his grand return to monthly comics with the new IMAGE series ALEX + ADA, alongside creator SARAH VAUGHN.

With ALEX + ADA, Jonathan Luna returns to that perfect blend of modern science fiction and fantasy with real people in real situations that we loved so much in his past works like GIRLS and THE SWORD.

This 12-issue, future-set series, follows the title character, Alex, as his life is thrown into disarray with the unexpected arrival of a lifelike X5 android known as Ada.

Alex soon finds himself venturing into a very unique, and potentially romantic, relationship with his new robot friend... and the interesting, and unique situations it puts him, AND, Ada in.

Set in a futuristic world, where we're shown the most realistic take on what a future with artificial intelligence could look like for us. It features a thriving robotics industry, alarm clocks that are floating holographic displays, breakfast served by floating robots, and normal human beings who are able to control their home electronics with a thought.

There's a great blend of drama, humor, love, loss, and more courtesy of Vauhgn and Luna.

Folks, we're totally pumped for this series, and highly recommend you take advantage of this unique opportunity to get issue #1 signed by both creators, Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn, at our huge release party for the book.

If you're one of the first 25 in line for the event, you can get a FREE special, limited edition bookplate with an original image created exclusively for this event.

WALKING DEAD #115 10th ANNIVERSARY Midnight Release Party!
Oct. 8, 2013 to Oct. 9, 2013

WEDNESDAY 10/9/13 (aka Tuesday night)
***********************************************************
12AM-1AM
***********************************************************
At both Third Eye Locations!

As you know, Third Eye Faithful, we are TREMENDOUS, UBER, and yes, even COLOSSAL fans of THE WALKING DEAD.

So, when we saw that Robert Kirkman had big things a'cookin' with his upcoming ALL OUT WAR storyline, we knew, we just knew... this had to be a Third Eye event of epic proportions.

So, for ALL OUT WAR, the biggest WALKING DEAD storyline to kick off... EVER... we're going to be hosting a special MIDNIGHT RELEASE event at both Third Eye Locations.

What's up with ALL OUT WAR? We're going to give you the full rundown in a second, but before we go ahead, let's talk about what we've got in store for the release party:

*First 50 Customers to purchase #115, get a FREE Walking Dead "Choose Your Army" Pin, featuring the insignias of Saviors, Survivors, the Kingdom, or Hilltop.

* First Crack at purchasing ALL 13 Covers of WALKING DEAD #115 or purchasing the special THIRD EYE WALKING DEAD #115 Cover Bundle, featuring a COMPLETE set of covers (including the rare PARTY variant)!

*Attend in ZOMBIE MAKE-UP, and Be Entered to Win a WALKING DEAD variant set, featuring uber-rare WALKING DEAD variants on past issues, including convention exclusives, and more! A $200 value!

*Exclusive opportunity to purchase the WALKING DEAD #115 Party Variant, only available at WD #115 Midnight Release Events -- very limited quantities available!

*WIN the WALKING DEAD #115 BLACK & WHITE Sketch Variant, which is limited to only 1 copy per event by being entered into a special prize drawing. Get a ticket for each copy of WALKING DEAD #115 you purchase!

*First 30 people in line receive a FREE Third Eye x Walking Dead Zombie Survival Bag!

*WALKING DEAD Prize Tickets will be randomly inserted into copies of WALKING DEAD #115 -- if you get a prize ticket, you can win a limited edition WALKING DEAD #115 ALL OUT WAR full-size poster.

So, what is ALL OUT WAR all about?

Starting in WALKING DEAD #115, ALL OUT WAR is the culmination of years of world-building, and intense character development, from Robert Kirkman and Charlie Adlard. It's the biggest WALKING DEAD story to hit the book... ever, and folks: we are so stoked to see how it shapes up.

For many of you who've been following the book, then you know things have been on their way to a confrontation with Rick and Negan.. and there's a ton of wild cards in play. The question is: who's side will each of these individuals take? And, what side will you be on?

Not only is this storyline going to be a huge 12-issue arc that provides major payoff to long-time readers of the series, but it also serves as a fantastic spot to jump aboard the book if you haven't already been reading or collecting the series.

So, where do your allegiances lie? Alexandria? The Hilltop? The Saviors? The Kingdom? Make your choice on October 9th, 2013 at our Midnight Release event.

RAT QUEENS #1 LAUNCH PARTY with KURTIS WIEBE (PETER PANZERFAUST), MEG DEJMAL & ROC UPCHURCH

THIRD EYE COMICS / 2027A WEST ST. / ANNAPOLIS, MD.
***********************************************************
We are totally stoked to announce one of our premiere Third Eye events of the Fall, with the launch party of the highly anticipated new ongoing IMAGE series, RAT QUEENS, from PETER PANZERFAUST writer and co-creator KURTIS J. WIEBE.

We've been following the progress of this incredible new series for quite some time, and ever since Kurtis first shared the details on it; we knew it was going to turn into something extra-special.

Now, here we are, with only a short while until the release of what's looking to be one of Image's biggest Fall releases, and we are pumped to bring you guys an incredible event as the site of the OFFICIAL Rat Queens launch party.

On Saturday 9/28/13, we'll be hosting Kurtis Wiebe, Roc Upchurch, and Meg Dejmal at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis, MD for the official launch party of RAT QUEENS #1!

So, what's RAT QUEENS all about, and why are we so pumped? OK, so here's the deal: the Rat Queens happen to be the most bad-ass, ale-swilling, dragon-disemboweling band of adventurers you'd ever meet. In this darkly comedic fantasy series starring Hanna the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, and Betty the Hippity Hobbit Thief, we're shown a fresh, and exciting new twist on the sword-and-sorcery fantasy genre, and we LOVE it.
This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that's like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack.

If Felicia Day fronted a Runaways cover band, it'd be called the RAT QUEENS. Seriously. We love it.

As one of the most exciting new projects to come out of IMAGE in 2013, we are not only stoked, but downright honored to be bringing you guys the OFFICIAL launch event for RAT QUEENS #1 with the entire creative team of Kurtis Wiebe, Roc Upchurch, and Meg Dejmal to sign your copies of #1.

Line Up Early, and Get Sick Loot!
In celebration of the event, we're going to be giving out some VERY cool FREE gifts limited strictly to this event, and produced for only the first 30 folks in line. So, make sure you line up early!

Get Your Game On While In Line!

Third Eye Faithful, we are so lucky to have such an awesome group of folks to call our customers, and we know you guys love to set it off, and line-up and camp out for big events.

We're encouraging you guys to bring your games from home, your camping chairs, and more, and get in the spirit of Rat Queens while waiting line. Have a quick game of MUNCHKIN, or maybe dust off your Cthulhu Dice -- either way, we think you'll have a blast while hanging out in the line outside, and waiting for the event to kick off!

Heck, we might even have an EXTRA-SPECIAL item for those of you who do show some Rat Queen spirit.

Got Some Medieval Garb? Going to RennFest? Come In Costume & Be Entered to Win A RAT QUEENS #1 Variant by SAGA artist FIONA STAPLES!

We're going all out with this signing, 'cause dammit, we're excited! With the time of year just so happening to be right around the height of Maryland Renn Fest season... we figured this was too perfect: you got some cool old-timey garb that would fit right in with the dragon-slaying awesome of RAT QUEENS? Throw it on, come in costume, and we'll enter you into a prize drawing to win one of the super-rad, super-limited FIONA STAPLES (SAGA) variants of RAT QUEENS #1!

BALLISTIC Signing w/ DARICK ROBERTSON (THE BOYS, TRANSMETROPOLITAN, HAPPY!)
Aug. 17, 2013

Guest: Darick Robertson

11AM-1PM
**************************************************************
FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT!
**************************************************************

Third Eye Faithful, we are totally excited to announce one of our biggest signings of the Summer with the arrival of Darick Robertson to Third Eye Comics this August! Darick is the legendary modern comics artist behind instant classics like TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE BOYS, and HAPPY! He's done a ton of other excellent work as well, in fact, we'd be here all day if we ran through the list. Let me just say this: we're honored to have the man as a guest at our store this Summer in anticipation of his brand new creator-owned series, BALLISTIC, from BLACK MASK STUDIOS, the publishers of the recent 12 REASONS TO DIE comic.

What's Darick's new project, BALLISTIC, all about? Imagine the cult movie genius of REPO MAN (the '80s one!) distilled into a modern day heist story. A madcap sci-fi buddy adventure about a wanna-be bank robber and his best friend Gun, a drug-addicted, foul-mouthed, living gun, marks Darick Robertson's return to the hard sci-fi worldbuilding of his classic TRANSMETROPOLITAN mixed with THE BOYS' ultra-violence.

Darick will be signing at Third Eye Annapolis from 11AM-1PM on Saturday 8/17. We'll have plenty of copies of all his works available, including his new series, BALLISTIC!

BURN THE ORPHANAGE: BORN TO LOSE #1 Release Party & Signing w/ SINA GRACE (LIL DEPRESSED BOY) & DANIEL FREEDMAN!

Guests: Sina Grace, Daniel Freedman

Imagine if all the awesome arcade games from when we were kids were blended into one seriously rad IMAGE series!

Did you grow up in the 16-bit era? Got a tad bit of '90s nostalgia? Well, imagine if FATAL FURY, STREETS OF RAGE, FINAL FIGHT, and DOUBLE DRAGON all threw down and the end result was a killer new comic from IMAGE COMICS... it'd be BURN THE ORPHANAGE.

We're totally pumped to be hosting creators SINA GRACE (LIL DEPRESSED BOY) and DANIEL FREEDMAN for a huge release party of BURN THE ORPHANAGE at Third Eye on Saturday 8/3/13.

Wild Blue Yonder Signing
June 19, 2013

Guests: Mike Raicht, Zach Howard

Folks, we are completely and totally honored to be hosting the day 1 release event for one of the most exciting new IDW series of the Summer: WILD BLUE YONDER. This post-apocalyptic steampunk thriller is a must-read, featuring the gorgeous artwork of THE CAPE artist ZACH HOWARD, and the writing of STUFF OF LEGEND’s MIKE RAICHT, it is a MUST.

When land and sea have become deadly and uninhabitable, the intrepid survivors of ecological disaster must take to the skies; to the WILD BLUE YONDER!

In a wildly imaginative take on the post-apocalyptic thriller, the creative team has created an eye-popping world of flying machines, massive makeshift fortresses and a desperate war among the dwindling population left to the scarce resources on the land.

As mankind has become accustomed to the reality of a prosperous life only existing in sky bound territory, a desperate war has broken out for control and survival on the ground and high above it.

A must-read, Third Eye Faithful, meet one of your favorite new titles of the Summer.

FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED STRICTLY TO THIS EVENT!
***************************************************************
Folks -- we're proud to announce this signing for what is sure to be one of the most popular new IMAGE COMICS titles to release this year. The artwork, the storytelling, the premise.. it's all top notch; we got the same kind of goosebumps reading the previews of this one that we did when we first thumbed through books like PETER PANZERFAUST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, REVIVAL and BEDLAM.
This fantastic new series from rising stars FRANK J. BARBIERE & CHRIS MOONEYHAM kicks off a bold new era of PULP ADVENTURE COMICS!

After a tragic encounter with an artifact known as the DREAMSTONE, infamous treasure hunter FABIAN GRAY was possessed by five literary ghosts and has been granted access to their unique abilities.

Now, we join creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham for the most exciting debut of 2013 as they introduce you to a unique world full of action, black magic, exotic locales, and literary allusion!

Folks: this book takes so many of our favorite things, and rolls them into one slick package. There's the occult intrigue of series like HELLBOY and THE SANDMAN. There's the pulpy treasure hunter aspect that's not far removed from the UNCHARTED games. There's the dynamic of a guy carrying around five ghosts with him; and being able to access their unique abilities.

Five Ghosts: the Haunting of Fabian Gray is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot recommend it enough.

We'll be having a very special release party signing with both Frank and Chris on Saturday May 25th, which is the week that the third issue of FIVE GHOSTS arrives.

Make sure to snag your copies of issues 1 & 2, when the series begins in March, so you can bring them by to get signed by Frank & Chris this May!

DREAM THIEF #1 Release Party w/ creators JAI NITZ & GREG SMALLWOOD

FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!
***************************************************************
***************************************************************
One of the most exciting new creator-owned books coming out this Summer is the Dark Horse original series, DREAM THIEF, which looks like it's going to come out of nowhere, and turn a TON of heads.

This incredible blend of supernatural horror, and modern-day crime drama (ala THE WIRE, RESERVOIR DOGS, THE DEPARTED, etc.) grabbed a hold of us when we read it, and completely blew us away.

Right then and there, we told creators Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood: you're coming to Third Eye to launch this gem proper.

What's it about? After stealing an Aborginal mask from a museum, John Lincoln realizes that the spirits of the vengeful dead are possessing his body and mind while he sleeps! His old problems have been replaced by bloody hands and a trail of dead bodies -- and now, remembering where he slept the night before is more important than ever.

This gritty, fast-paced drama is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we'd love to have you join us on Saturday May 18th when we have Jai and Greg to the shop to launch the book!

Maximum Minimum Wage Signing
May 11, 2013

Guest: Bob Fingerman

First 25 in line receive a FREE limited edition signed & numbered bookplate created JUST FOR THIS EVENT!

Folks, we are extra excited about this one, as Minimum Wage has been one of our personal favorites for a VERY long time. When IMAGE COMICS decided to collect the entire run of MINIMUM WAGE into one gorgeous, oversized 350+ page hardcover for only $34.99 — we knew we had to do something special to celebrate, and bringing series creator BOB FINGERMAN in for a huge Third Eye signing was exactly the thing to do!

For those of you who may not know, MINIMUM WAGE is one of the best indie comics of all time. Heck, when Third Eye Steve sold off his collection to fund the store way back when — his Minimum Wage comics were one of the few things he couldn’t part with! That should tell you something!

During its original run, MINIMUM WAGE racked up critical acclaim and a devoted following. Why? Because each page of Rob and Sylvia’s workaday saga boasted uncomfortable truths drenched in bleak humor, presaging squirmy shows like LOUIE and GIRLS.

Set in a New York so real you can smell it, this definitive edition collects the entire run, and also features a ton of great guest pin-ups by the likes of Peter Bagge, Dave Cooper, Joe Dator, Guy Davis, Glenn Fabry, Dean Haspiel, Gilbert Hernandez, Peter Kuper, Mike Mignola, and many more.

We can pretty much guarantee that if you dig slice-of-life humor, or autobiographical comics, you’ll love this book.

Imagine the dark everyday humor of Kevin Smith’s CLERKS, mix in a little bit of comic industry insider fun, and a whole lot of interesting characters, and you’ve got MINIMUM WAGE.

We’ll have plenty of copies of MINIMUM WAGE on hand for you to check out at the event!

First 20 in line receive a very special FREE gift!
***************************************************************
We’re huge fans of SKULLKICKERS here at Third Eye, and are totally stoked for this great opportunity for many of you guys to discover this series for the first time with SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS #1.

We’re hosting a special launch party with SKULLKICKERS writer JIM ZUB and artist EDWIN HUANG to kick off this great jumping on point for new readers.

Haven’t read SKULLKICKERS? This series is an incredible piece of work; a must for both comics fans and gamers, as it blends the kind of bloody humor you’d see in ARMY OF DARKNESS or EVIL DEAD with the fantasy genre settings of A GAME OF THRONES, THE HOBBIT or WORLD OF WARCRAFT.

Ever wanted a Dungeons & Dragons-style comic that kicked ass on all fronts? Story, art, and more? SKULLKICKERS is that book.

Picture the best of buddie comedies like THE HANGOVER and cross it with the world of DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS, and that sums up SKULLKICKERS perfectly.

Wanna try the earlier SKULLKICKERS material before our signing? We’ve got the trade paperbacks in stock now, and you can give it a shot with volume 1 for only $9.99!

In addition to this exciting opportunity to meet the creators of one of our favorite gaming-inspired comics, we're also hosting the first ever INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY!

As part of the Geek & Sundry video blog TABLETOP w/ WIL WHEATON, FELICIA DAY and more, we'll be doing a very cool event with our guests JIM ZUB & EDWIN HUANG.

You can look forward to the following activities:

FREE TableTop related items!
A demo of MUNCHKIN SKULLKICKERS with the Skullkickers creators!
Special deals on ALL gaming-related items.
Being featured on the event which will be LIVESTREAMED to the Geek & Sundry webchannel!

VITRIOL THE HUNTER #1 Launch Signing
March 2, 2013

Third Eye Comics presents...
VITRIOL THE HUNTER Launch Party
with special guests...
BRENT ALLEN (co-creator & writer) & GOOD CHARLOTTE'S BILLY MARTIN (co-creator & artist)

First 25 in line receive a VERY special free gift limited to this event!

Join us as we host the exciting launch of a brand new series from IDW Publishing, with our VITRIOL THE HUNTER launch event!

This exciting new series is a must for fans of HELLBOY, BPRD, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, and BALTIMORE: THE PLAGUE SHIPS.

Drawing on folklore and old monster myths prevalent in today's society, shaping them into a story that's one part classic horror film, and one part futuristic fantasy; imagine Hammer Studios's Horror of Dracula by way of Blade Runner.

A self-proclaimed vigilante, Vitriol leads a mission to cleanse his homeland of the malicious monsters that have overtaken it, led by a brutal vampire with some tyrannical inclinations.

Set in the city of Basilika in the year 2127, Vitriol the Hunter chronicles Vitriol's encounters with werewolves, hordes of hellions, and other walking myths.

Co-created, and featuring the artwork of GOOD CHARLOTTE's Billy Martin, and written by Brent Allen, VITRIOL THE HUNTER is set to be one of the breakout hits of the Spring, and we're honored to be the official launch spot for the book this March!

11am - 1pm

The Answer Launch Party
Jan. 26, 2013

11AM-1PM

Third Eye Faithful, we're proud to be hosting the launch party of one of the most exciting new books of Winter 2013 with our release party of THE ANSWER #1.

We'll have creators DENNIS HOPELESS, who's also the current writer on CABLE & THE X-FORCE and AVENGERS ARENA, as well as store favorites like LOVESTRUCK & LEGION OF MONSTERS and MIKE NORTON, who's the artist on the red-hot IMAGE series REVIVAL, as well as the store favorite BATTLEPUG.

This will be the kick-off of their new series, THE ANSWER, which is a very promising looking modern take on the classic masked vigilante story.

What's the scoop on the ANSWER? This gloriously pulpy, and totally fun new series is fantastic. Meet Devin McKenzie, an insomniac librarian with a knack for solving puzzles.

The Answer! is a masked crimefighter with a giant exclamation point on his face.. how can this not be rad? 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.

This series looks to be pretty darn cool, and we're stoked to be able to launch it here at Third Eye.

You can also bring your other books by Dennis and Mike to get signed as well, and we know that there's a lot of you who're excited about CABLE AND X-FORCE and AVENGERS ARENA, as well as a ton of you guys who're diehard fans of IMAGE hit REVIVAL.

It's no secret, Third Eye Faithful, that one of our favorite new IMAGE series of 2012 has been REVIVAL, a harrowing supernaturally-charged rural crime noir which puts the most unique spin on the dead getting up and walking around that we've seen in a LONG time.

DC New 52 Team 7 #0 Launch Party with writer JUSTIN JORDAN
Sept. 15, 2012

Join us on Saturday 9/15 as we have one of our favorite writers working in comics today at Third Eye Annapolis to do a launch signing of his new project at DC COMICS: TEAM 7.

TEAM 7 is one of the brand new “DC New 52? titles launching in September with their upcoming #0 issue month, and we personally cannot wait to get our hands on it.

What makes this title so important? Well, first off: amazing creative team, JUSTIN JORDAN, who wowed us last year with STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE, is one of the fastest rising stars in comics. The dude is that good. And, artist Jesus Merino? Incredibly talented, and super sharp, he brings the book to life in a big way.

But, it’s not just a killer creative team that has us amped! Nope! There’s more to it than that, see, TEAM 7 is THE center piece of the new titles launching in September for the NEW52.

This special series explores the earliest days of the NEW 52, and provides another piece of the puzzle about what makes the NEW 52 DC Universe so different from the regular DCU.

With issue #0 showing us a glimpse at a covert government team being assembled coincidentally around the arrival of SUPERMAN, and being tasked with determining the secrets of these new god-like superhumans that’re popping up all over the world, TEAM 7 is guaranteed to answer many major questions about the NEW 52.

We are totally stoked to be having Justin on hand to launch TEAM7 the week of release at Third Eye, and are honored to be hosting the launch of one of the NEW 52?s biggest releases this year!

Meet IMAGE COMICS's "27" Writer CHARLES SOULE
Jan. 7, 2012

SATURDAY 1/7/12
*******************
MEET CHARLES SOULE, WRITER OF THE SMASH HIT IMAGE SERIES "27: FIRST SET" and "27: SECOND SET"
*******************
@ THIRD EYE COMICS IN ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND
*******************
We're honored to have one of Image's hottest rising star creators joining us at Third Eye in support of his smash hit series "27".

Charles will be on hand from 11AM-2PM signing copies of 27, and talking about his other projects.

First 15 heads in line will receive a special, limited to 15 only, "27" mix tape, courtesy of Third Eye. ;)

********************
Haven't read "27"? You gotta check it out. This fantastic series explores the legendary myth of a "27 Club", involving rock stars who've all died at the young age of 27.

Focusing on a young musician, suffering from a neurological disorder that's hampering his ability to play, we witness as he bargains his existence to continue playing music.

From there, we're shown a creepy, occult and mad science charged world where rock legends like Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, and many more are all members of the mythical "27 Club".

You can catch up now by grabbing the first trade paperback, 27: FIRST SET, and giving the series a go.

Dig it? The current series is running now, and issues 1-3 are available at Third Eye as we speak!
