CULLEN BUNN, Writer of DEADPOOL KILLUSTRATED & DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE, unveils his MARVEL NOW Project: FEARLESS DEFENDERS #1 this Wednesday
A Book Showcasing the Female Heroes of the Marvel Universe!
Folks, we're pretty excited about this next new MARVEL NOW launch title, as it features one of Third Eye's favorite writers in the biz: CULLEN BUNN, who many of you met at our DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE signing, and many of you are currently digging on DEADPOOL KILLUSTRATED, and it also delivers something that we haven't seen out of Marvel yet: a book focusing on the heroines of the Marvel Universe.
In FEARLESS DEFENDERS, Cullen brings a unique level of quirk, subtle humor, and non-stop kick-ass action to the most kick-ass female Marvel icons you can think of.

GARTH ENNIS, writer of THE BOYS, PREACHER, PUNISHER MAX, and more, DEBUTS A BRAND NEW SERIES THIS WEDNESDAY WITH RED TEAM #1
THE MOST VIOLENT POLICE DRAMA / STORY YOU'LL EVER READ!
You guys know we're HUGE fans of GARTH ENNIS here at Third Eye. I mean, I'm not going to lie: Ennis wrote what I consider to be my favorite comic of all time, PREACHER. So, to say I'm a bit biased when I see his name on a new title is an understatement.
The first-timers. Eddie Mellinger. Trudy Giroux. Duke Wylie. George Winburn. These individuals make up THE RED TEAM: the NYPD's elite anti-narcotics unit.
They've taken down one drug lord after another with a careful blend of meticulous surveillance and applied violence, but their latest case has even them stumped.
Their frustration leads them to take extreme measures -- setting them on a path from which there can be no coming back.
As they're about to discover, doing the wrong thing can be very, very seductive.
Third Eye Faithful: you want a hyper-violent police drama that grabs a hold of you and does not let go? You want RED TEAM. This really conjures up the kind of vibe we get from movies like THE RAID, and the french crime/horror flick THE HORDE.
Channel in some old school NYC grime and grit ala KING OF NEW YORK and BAD LIEUTENANT, and you're in for a real treat.
As Ennis has shown us in the past, he's not afraid to go for the jugular with his storytelling, and RED TEAM is no exception; this may be one of our favorite things he's written in quite some time!
DETECTIVE COMICS #17 -- THE DEATH OF THE FAMILY GIVES BIRTH TO THE "LEAGUE OF SMILES" IN THIS WEEK'S DETECTIVE!

What element is that, you may ask? THE LEAGUE OF SMILES, a gang of psychotic killers who worship THE JOKER.
Deadly new villains are introduced -- and you guys aren't going to believe their horrific ties back to ARKHAM ASYLUM.
Wanna get caught up on DEATH OF THE FAMILY? We've got ALL chapters of the crossover in stock and available now to get you current.

IMAGE COMICS DEBUTS AN EXCITING NEW SERIES WITH ANDY DIGGLE (THE LOSERS, GREEN ARROW YEAR ONE) & JOCK'S (THE LOSERS, BATMAN THE BLACK MIRROR) SNAPSHOT #1
One of our favorite creative teams of the '00s was the duo of ANDY DIGGLE and JOCK. The work that these two did on the VERTIGO series, THE LOSERS, still remains an incredible piece of comic book goodness, Third Eye Faithful, and then their subsequent work rebuilding the origins of Oliver Queen, in GREEN ARROW YEAR ONE, stands out as well.
You can tell that Diggle and Jock are in their element here, completely, as they tell a stylish crime thriller that touches on aspects of everyday life, while including a little bit of the fantastic.
In the world of SNAPSHOT, Jake Dobson is our unlikely hero. One day, after working his day job at the Near-Mint Rhino comic book store in San Francisco, he finds a lost cell phone, but is horrified to discover it's full of snapshots of a murder victim.
Suddenly, he finds himself hunted by a vengeful hitman who wants his phone back and Jake in a bodybag.
And, then, things begin to get REALLY complicated.
This marks the first-ever creator-owned work by the team of ANDY DIGGLE and JOCK, and folks, trust us, you do NOT want to miss this one.
Do you love the breakneck, stylish appeal of the current HAWKEYE run? If so, you'll love SNAPSHOT.
MARVEL'S SMASH HIT, ALL NEW X-MEN, CONTINUES TO KEEP US HOOKED WITH THIS WEDNESDAY'S ALL NEW X-MEN #7
I gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful: ALL NEW X-MEN has surpassed all of my expectations, and then some. While I knew the series was going to be great, I had no idea that it would end up taking one of the top spots amongst my favorite MARVEL NOW series.
But, folks, it has. Brian Michael Bendis, long-time AVENGERS writer, ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN scribe, and of course, AvX mastermind, is delivering some of the best work of his career here, as he's totally rejuvenated with a whole new toybox of characters to play with.
In ALL NEW X-MEN, we're seeing the X-Men, the original X-Men, brought from the past into the present... and being totally disgusted by what awaits them.
Now, teenage versions of Cyclops, Iceman, Beast, Angel and Jean Grey must struggle to change the future that awaits them. A future where Cyclops runs alongside Magneto, and has Professor X's blood on his hands. A future where mutantkind is hated and feared more than ever.
In this week's issue #7, the classic X-Villain MYSTIQUE targets the young time-traveling team... and all hell breaks loose.
Wanna get caught up? We've got issues 1-6 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #7.
RILEY ROSSMO, artist of BEDLAM, delivers a new mini-series this Wednesday with DIA DE LOS MUERTOS #1 This Wednesday
You guys know we're big fans of Riley Rossmo's artwork, and we know many of you feel the same, judging by the huge response BEDLAM gets whenever a new issue drops.
So, when we saw this project coming out, we knew we had to check it out.
Inspired by the Mexican DAY OF THE DEAD, Riley Rossmo pairs up with nine different writers over three issues to tell Day of the Dead-inspired tales.
In the first issue, a mariachi falls in love with a woman who strongly resembles his lost love, a father is abused by a poltergeist, and a girl who's mother died when she was born visits the land of the dead in her dreams.
All you had to say was DAY OF THE DEAD stories + RILEY ROSSMO, and we were in, Third Eye Faithful.
As one of the best artists today capturing a horror vibe in their comics, Rossmo's work is a perfect fit for this.

GREEN ARROW #17 -- A NEW ERA BEGINS WITH THIS GREAT JUMPING ON POINT, FEATURING NEW WRITER JEFF LEMIRE (ANIMAL MAN, SWEET TOOTH, UNDERWATER WELDER) and ARTIST ANDREA SORRENTINO
Folks: GREEN ARROW just became a MUST-READ! GET IT!
I've always been a big fan of the character GREEN ARROW, and with legendary runs like QUIVER, ARCHER'S QUEST, YEAR ONE, and of course, LONGBOW HUNTERS, it's not hard to see why.
But, it's been a LONG time since we've gotten a really killer GREEN ARROW run, and folks, I think that's about to change with this Wednesday's GREEN ARROW #17, the start of a bold new direction for the Emerald Archer.
Why're we so stoked for this? There's a ton of reasons, but one of the big ones is the addition of new series writer JEFF LEMIRE, who's wowed us on ANIMAL MAN for over a year now, and totally hooked us with his Vertigo series SWEET TOOTH.
But, that's not all, we're also pumped with the artist who'll be joining Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino, who's style is very reminiscent of JAE LEE, and fits the dark story that Lemire is telling perfectly.
In this perfect jumping on point for the GREEN ARROW, Ollie struggles to come to terms with the loss of his fortune, his company and his heritage. It gets worse when he discovers a shocking truth about his father that ties to his time stranded on an island before he became GREEN ARROW.
Folks: this is going to be THE next big DC book to read, I'm telling you right now. Do NOT sleep on this one. We know BATMAN has been kicking ass, and we know AQUAMAN continues to rule, but GREEN ARROW is going to charge out of nowhere to the top of your DC New 52 reading piles.
PAUL JENKINS & LEGENDARY SPIDER-MAN artist HUMBERTO RAMOS DELIVER AN EPIC NEW MODERN FANTASY!
A MUST FOR FANS OF FABLES, MOUSE GUARD, AND STUFF OF LEGEND!
We LOVE Humberto Ramos's art, whether it was his own creator-owned masterpiece CRIMSON, or his work on AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, this guy is GOOD. So, when we saw that he and Paul Jenkins were putting out a new series from BOOM! Studios (IRREDEEMABLE, ADVENTURE TIME, etc.)... we pretty much flipped our lids.
The world of FABLEWOOD, where all of the stories that have ever been told live side-by-side, is a sinister place indeed! Under the watchful eye of the dreaded Mister Grimm and his Think Police, Red Riding Hood and her Wolf must risk everything to try and escape to find sanctuary in a mysterious place called the REAL WORLD.

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #3 -- Spider-Ock and J. Jonah Jameson -- working together?
We are really digging the new SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN title, as it shines brightly as one of the most exciting MARVEL NOW titles to launch.
Ryan Stegman's art brings a fresh, edgy pop to the world of the Wallcrawler, redefining the character, much like Bagley, Romita JR and Bagley have all done throughout the years.
Slott's storytelling is on fire here, bringing all sorts of interesting elements into play, and making every encounter with new and old cast alike, an interesting one.
This issue builds on the relationship between the new Spider-Man and J. Jonah Jameson, meanwhile, we see the return of the iconic Spidey villain: the VULTURE.

GREAT PACIFIC #4 -- THIS ECO-THEMED SCI-FI THRILLER HAS US HOOKED!
GREAT PACIFIC has been a real treat since it's debut, and we're really digging the direction that creators Joe Harris and Martin Morrazzo are taking this stellar book.
Following the story of Chas Worthington, a man who dreams of big things, solving bigger problems, and making his mark on the world. GREAT PACIFIC shows us that this 21-year-old heir to one of the biggest oil fortunes in history will surprise many, as he turns his back on the cushy life of wealth and prestige,a nd seeks to solve an environmental disaster twice the size of his native Texas known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
Giant squid monsters. Great storytelling. Super cool art. GREAT PACIFIC is a real blast, and we cannot get enough of it, Third Eye Faithful.
As Chas's path gets more and more dangerous, he finds himself confronted by a new face: the lovely and mysterious French aviator, Zoe, who's crashed onto his island nation, only to make things much worse.
Imagine Brian Wood's THE MASSIVE or DMZ meets Brian K. Vaughan's Y THE LAST MAN, and that helps describe the vibe of THE GREAT PACIFIC.
