1ST 25 IN LINE GET A FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!
When we first took a glance at ISOLA - we knew right away that this book was going to be truly special, and Third Eye Faithful, after sitting down with issue #1 - we can tell you we were absolutely right.
This lush, gorgeously illustrated sci-fi fantasy epic takes us back to our youth when we spent way too much time playing FINAL FANTASY VII, and eagerly sought out every Miyazaki film we could find.
Seriously though, imagine the world-building and epic storytelling of SEVEN TO ETERNITY and mix that with a STUDIO GHIBLI aesthetic, and that sums up ISOLA very well.
And, because we're so pumped on the book, we've put together a very special signing to bring ISOLA creators BRENDEN FLETCHER (BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE, MOTOR CRUSH, GOTHAM ACADEMY) and KARL KERSCHL (GOTHAM ACADEMY) to Third Eye!
What's the scoop on ISOLA?
As the home of premiere top quality storytelling, it’s really awesome to see a new crop of Image books that deliver the goods, and ISOLA definitely fits the bill.
In ISOLA #1, the captain of the Royal Guard has fled the capital city with the Queen of Maar, suffering under the effects of an evil spell.
Captain Rook’s only hope of returning Queen Olwyn to her throne and saving the kingdom from impending war lies on an island half a world away-a place known in myth as Isola, land of the dead.
Featuring lush color work by MSASSYK (Gotham Academy) and letters by ADITYA BIDIKAR (MOTOR CRUSH). Recommended for fans of Studio Ghibli and the work of Hayao Miyazaki.
Imagine the sweeping science fiction fantasy storytelling of SEVEN TO ETERNITY and mix that with a very Studio Ghibli aesthetic, and that really captures the tone of ISOLA well.

1ST 25 IN LINE GET A FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT
Third Eye Faithful, Image Comics is on fire this year as they put out hit after hit after hit, and one of the most promising new ongoing series of 2018 has gotta be FARMHAND, from the co-creator of the legendary series that started the Image revival in 2008 - Rob Guillory of Chew!
Now, ten years after the debut of the book that literally changed creator-owned comics as we know it (and c'mon, you can say WALKING DEAD was the book that built Image, but in our minds, it was Chew that really established Image as the name they've come to be for top notch, high quality comic book goodness), Rob is back with a series that is set to hook you the same way Chew did and then some.
We're so freakin' pumped for FARMHAND that we actually set up a big launch signing with Rob for 7/14, and will be bringing him out for his first ever Third Eye signing - so not only will you get a chance to get your stack of Chew trade paperbacks signed, but even better: you'll get to get a copy of FARMHAND #1 signed right as it's setting new issue racks across the country on fire!
