Marvel NOW unites it's entire universe in THE AGE OF ULTRON #1 beginning this Wednesday at our AGE OF ULTRON Release Party
Folks, we are so amped for the AGE OF ULTRON, it's ridiculous. Everything we've read and see non this huge MARVEL event is making it look to be one of the biggest stories the publisher has done in quite some time.
Just like AVENGERS VS. X-MEN totally wowed the heck out of us last year, with it's stunning storyline, it's incredible character development, and the overall perfect execution of a big MARVEL UNIVERSE-spanning story, it looks like AGE OF ULTRON is set to take that formula and ONE UP IT!
Why're we so pumped? Well, let's be honest: Marvel is kicking ass in a big way right now. All of their titles are really firing on all cylinders, and with the MARVEL NOW, they've done a fantastic job of bringing fresh new spins to all of their characters.
Now, they're opening the sandbox, and bringing many of their most iconic heroes together in a storyline featuring one of the Avenger's most iconic foes, ULTRON.
For years the heroes of the Marvel Universe have lived in fear that the artificial intelligence known as ULTRON would one day evolve to fulfill its desire to wipe out all organic life and take over Earth -- now, that day has arrived.
This massive, 10-part Marvel Universe-spanning event is brought to us by the red-hot writer of ALL NEW X-MEN, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and more, BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, and superstar comic artist BRYAN HITCH (AMERICA'S GOT POWERS, THE ULTIMATES).
Imagine if SKYNET existed in the Marvel Universe, that's the AGE OF ULTRON. A ruthless, calculating, and downright sinister artificial lifeform who's only mission is to destroy organic life completely, and replace it with artificial intelligence.
With roots in the origins of the AVENGERS, we can't help but wonder if ULTRON may play a larger role in Marvel's own cinematic universe down the road.
Either way, this book is INCREDIBLE. We've seen the pages, we've read the teasers, we can tell you right now:
The events of AGE OF ULTRON will leave the Marvel Universe a much different place in it's wake.
Wanna get into it? This is a fantastic, user-friendly series to jump on board with, as you do not need a ton of prior continuity knowledge to jump on board fresh. If the MARVEL NOW #1s do a fantastic job of making it easy to hop aboard a series, then AGE OF ULTRON is the perfect event to be able to get right into.

HELHEIM #1 -- CULLEN BUNN & JOELLE JONES DELIVER THE RADDEST TAKE ON VIKINGS WE'VE SEEN SINCE NORTHLANDERS!
NOT TO MENTION THE RADDEST TAKE ON "WHITE WALKER"-STYLE ZOMBIE BAD GUYS THIS SIDE OF GAME OF THRONES!
MEET CREATORS CULLEN BUNN & JOELLE JONES at Third Eye at FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!
HELHEIM is a book that I've been excited about since I first saw the black & white ashcan of it a few months back. The combination of a visceral, in-your-face story, and some of the msot stunning artwork I've seen in a book in a while really had me hooked, and I knew that when it came out, it was going to be a must-read!
This new ongoing series from Oni Press has all the makings of a sleeper hit; we're pretty much going to tell you right off the bat, that if you were taken by surprise on books like PETER PANZERFAUST, NOWHERE MEN, and BLACK BEETLE, then you should probably keep a close eye on HELHEIM, as the book looks INCREDIBLE.
Once the threshold of Helheim is crossed, not even gods can escape. During the age of the Vikings, savage wild men and dark creatures beset a small settlement. A brave war party stands as guardians of the helpless villagers, but they are no match for the horrors rising up around them.
One of the warriors, a young hero named Rikard, will pay the ultimate price in battle... but his fight is far from over.
Helheim brings us a gothic horror story of witchcraft, night creatures, and the undead, set against the backdrop of the Age of Vikings.
Blood, Fire, Death! Helheim is pretty much the comic book equivalent of a Bathory album played at the highest volume possible. Trust us: you will love this book.
PLUS: you can bring your copies of HELHEIM back with you on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2013 and get them signed by our guests CULLEN BUNN and JOELLE JONES.
Imagine if A GAME OF THRONES's saga of the White Walkers, and the Wall was set during the Age of the Vikings. That, my friends, is HELHEIM.

GREEN ARROW #18 -- JEFF LEMIRE & ANDREA SORRENTINO'S INCREDIBLE NEW RUN ON GREEN ARROW CONTINUES! FOLKS, DO NOT MISS OUT: THIS NEW RUN IS MAKING GREEN ARROW ONE OF THE BEST MONTHLY DC BOOKS ON THE STANDS!
I gotta tell you: I've always been a big GREEN ARROW fan, but for the last few years, there hasn't been a really outstanding GREEN ARROW run.. UNTIL NOW.
Only two issues in, and we can tell that JEFF LEMIRE (writer of ANIMAL MAN, SWEET TOOTH and UNDERWATER WELDER) and ANDREA SORRENTINO'S (I VAMPIRE artist) GREEN ARROW run is going to rank up there with classics like Mike Grell's THE LONGBOW HUNTERS and Kevin Smith's QUIVER.
Bringing a very noir, very street-level approach to the character and his world, this new run feels very close in tone to stuff like BATMAN YEAR ONE, the Frank Miller and Brian Bendis DAREDEVIL stuff, and even the current run of HAWKEYE in some respects.
In Lemire & Sorrentino's GREEN ARROW run, Oliver Queen has lost everything: his company, his money, his friends, and most of his arrows. It's all because of one man: Komodo, who has come to tear Ollie's life to shreds.
From the ashes, Ollie must uncover the secrets of his father's past -- secrets of the island and Ollie's own uncanny ability with the bow.
Third Eye Faithful: I know it's probably been a long time since you've read GREEN ARROW, or heck, if you've NEVER read GREEN ARROW... you gotta trust me, this is one of the best DC books going right now due to the creative team that's just come on board. Try it out. We promise: you'll love it.
Wanna get started? The first part of this arc is in issue #17, which was have in stock now to catch you up to this week's #18.
IMAGE COMICS DELIVERS A CUTTING EDGE NEW TAKE ON SUPERHEROES IN THE MODERN WORLD WITH SEX #1 THIS WEDNESDAY
You guys know we're pretty big on most of the killer series that IMAGE COMICS puts out these days, and when we saw this one come through to our inbox -- we knew they were onto another hit series, 'cause it's freakin' fantastic.
I'm going to refrain from using the title too much, because I don't want to get sent to your spam filter; but trust me: this book is AWESOME.
Simon Cooke has retired from his own secret lifestyle of vigilantism and returned to the city he'd previously sworn to protect. Now, he's just another average citizen -- or is he?
A must for fans of series like WATCHMEN, THE BOYS, BLACK KISS, IRREDEEMABLE, and more, this is a mature look at the world of masked good guys and bad guys... and how quickly the line between the two blurs.
Written by IMAGE COMICS legend JOE CASEY, and featuring the stunning artwork of Piotr Kowalski, do NOT sleep on this series, as we've got a pretty strong feeling it's going to be one of the best books of the Spring for IMAGE COMICS.

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #5 -- The best take on SPIDEY in ages continues this Wednesday!
SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN continues to exceed all of our expectations, and then some, as it delivers one of the most satisfying, and kick-ass MARVEL NOW titles on the stands. We seriously have not dug Spider-Man this much in quite some time.
In this week's SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #5, we see how many have to die before the Superior Spider-Man will find himself able to kill a super-villain, breaking the will of the Peter Parker element that still resides within his brain.
It's SPIDER-MAN VERSUS MASSACRE -- with hundreds of lives in the balance.
Sharp storytelling, great artwork, SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN is the definition of what a great MARVEL COMICS is.
The dynamic of Doc Ock trying to legitimately be a hero, but finding himself doing it in his own skewed way, is incredible.

IMAGE COMICS DELIVERS ANOTHER HIT NEW SERIES WITH THIS WEDNESDAY'S LOST VEGAS #1 -- DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS INCREDIBLE NEW SCI-FI / CRIME THRILLER!
It's always around Spring when IMAGE delivers some of their most exciting projects, and this Wednesday's LOST VEGAS is shaping up to be another breakout IMAGE hit.
Jim McCann and Janet Lee, the creators of cult favorite graphic novel RETURN OF THE DAPPER MEN, reunite to create a universe filled with intrigue as one gambler-turned-slave has 24 hours to go all in and pull off the greatest heist the universe has seen.
Welcome to LOST VEGAS! Aboard this luxurious casino-filled traveling space-station you will find the highest stakes games from every corner of every planet, unheard-of winnings, and the greatest attractions anywhere... but those who bet it all and lose must work it off as indentured servants to the Casino.
Escape is not possible. No one is exempt from these rules.
LOST VEGAS looks to be the kind of kick-ass sci-fi that's been putting IMAGE on the map lately, one part FIREFLY / SERENITY, one part HITCH-HIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, with a little bit of JAMES BOND thrown in, this is a unique, and innovative read that'll leave you wanting more.
McCann brings the same solid storytelling he demonstrated on MIND THE GAP, while Janet Lee's artwork brings the world of LOST VEGAS to life in a big way.

Folks: essentially, this is steampunk BATMAN, and it's pretty freakin' awesome. The way the Joker is portrayed as the mysterious JACK THE RIPPER, the way that Master of the Future brings a pulpy noir world of steam-powered airships to Gotham, everything about this book is pretty much perfect.
Featuring art by HELLBOY creator MIKE MIGNOLA, GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT is a must for any BATMAN fan.
THE HORROR OF CROSSED CONTINUES IN THIS WEDNESDAY'S CROSSED VOLUME 5! THE MOST SHOCKING, AND HARROWING SURVIVAL HORROR COMIC ON THE STANDS!
Caught up on WALKING DEAD and need something to tide you over? READ CROSSED!
CROSSED returns this week with what may be it's most shocking volume yet, as FAMILY VALUES and PSYCHOPATH writer DAVID LAPHAM takes us into the most horrific carnival you're ever going to see.
CROSSED + Clowns? Terrifying. Straight up terrifying.
This volume takes us back to the earliest days of the CROSSED outbreak, when an outbreak of viral insanity first plunged an unsuspecting world into darkness. We begin with a horrifying day at the circus, and then conclude with a group of self-centered and hedonistic college kids finding themselves urrounded by the CROSSED at a writer's retreat.
What depths will they sink to in order to survive?
What is CROSSED? Imagine this: they're not zombies, but instead, a virus has reduced all living things that it touches to PURE evil. Sadistic, brutal, and only wanting to cause pain and misery, the CROSSED aren't the shambling, mindless undead -- they're evil, vicious killers who laugh with glee as they reign terror on their victims. And, they're smart.
Whatever a CROSSED knew before they 'Crossed' over, they've still retained. Whether that's driving a car, flying a plane, or using semiautomatic weapons; they're still all there in the brain -- they just have no moral compass now, and want to do everything they can to hurt people.
Each tale of the CROSSED adds a new element to this terrifying world that AVATAR PRESS has built, and this week's CROSSED VOLUME 5 may be the most terrifying yet, because like I said before:
Crossed + Clowns!
Wanna catch up on the earlier CROSSED series? We've got the graphic novels of everything that's out so far in stock now to get you up to speed.
ALL NEW X-MEN #8 -- ONE OF THE TOP 5 MARVEL BOOKS ON THE STANDS RETURNS THIS WEDNESDAY AS THE AVENGERS MEET THE TIME-SWEPT X-MEN FOR THE FIRST TIME!
ALL NEW X-MEN continues to be one of the best damn superhero comics on the stands, as this week's issue #8 takes the team into some very interesting territory... AVENGERS territory.
Now, we'll get to see how the Earth's Mightiest Heroes react to the fact that the X-Men of yesteryear, many of whom have grown up to be pretty fear-inspiring enemies of the AVENGERS, are here in the present day.
Folks: if you're still not reading ALL NEW X-MEN, you are seriously missing out on what's one of the best comics on the racks these days.
Bendis is on fire here, as he plays the dynamic of the classic X-Men in the present day super well, and the art team of Immonen and Marquez has been hitting homeruns with each issue.
The series has the same kind of excitement, and just plain innovative awesomeness that UNCANNY X-FORCE did back when it first began with the DARK ANGEL SAGA.
Highly recommended, get into ALL NEW X-MEN this week at Third Eye.
Wanna get caught up? We've got issues 1-7 in stock now to get you up to date in time for this week's #8.
BEDLAM #5 -- NICK SPENCER & RILEY ROSSMO'S DARK LOOK AT THE MIND OF SUPER-CRIMINALS CONTINUES IN WEDNESDAY'S BEDLAM #5
One of our favorite IMAGE series currently running has got to be BEDLAM, which continues to impress with each and every issue.
MORNING GLORIES writer NICK SPENCER and the incredibly talented RILEY ROSSMO craft a dark, and fascinating look at the psyche of the super-criminal arch-type in a way that grabs a hold and does not let go.
What is BEDLAM? Bedlam is the tale of MADDER RED, who's very much the JOKER kind of bad guy, a masked homicidal killer who has terrorized the small town of BEDLAM for years.
But, upon his arrest, Madder Red finds himself in a police station being sieged and burnt by angry citizens of the town -- and is thought dead in the melee.
Only he's not. He's resurfaced. And, no one knows who he is, and everyone wants to believe he's gone for good.
But, Madder Red, who's really the man known as Fillmore Press, may actually be gone. See, after a strange operation, he's now carrying a very odd compulsion to hunt down and solve the crimes of murderers like himself.
Think DEXTER and A CLOCKWORK ORANGE by way of Gotham City. That's the way I'd sum BEDLAM up.
Wanna get into this fantastic series? We've got issues 1-4 in stock now to catch you up to Wednesday's #5.

JONATHAN HICKMAN'S AVENGERS CONTINUES TO WOW THE HECK OUT OF US, AS IT PAVES THE WAY FOR THE UPCOMING MARVEL: INFINITY STORYLINE BEGINNING THIS MAY!
SNAG AVENGERS #7 THIS WEDNESDAY!
Jonathan Hickman could write the AVENGERS forever, and we'd be totally OK with that. He's doing such an amazing job crafting a killer AVENGERS story with his current run that it's downright silly how good this book is.
In this week's AVENGERS #7, the AVENGERS must scramble to deal with the threat of another Universal SYSTEM. Now, the new ADAM is transformed, and his true self is revealed.
And, the most dangerous hero on Earth is created.
Slick, smart, and cutting-edge, Hickman's MARVEL NOW Avengers series may be the best take on the Earth's Mightiest Heroes we've read in a long time.
Whether you're a big fan of his work on creator-owned stuff like MANHATTAN PROJECTS and PAX ROMANA, or you dig his Marvel stuff like the FANTASTIC FOUR run where Human Torch died, you will totally love what he's doing with The Avengers.
Wanna get caught up? We've got issues 1-6 in stock now to get you caught up to speed.
BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY / COURT OF OWLS writer SCOTT SNYDER's terrifying IMAGE horror series SEVERED arrives in trade paperback this Wednesday
You guys may already know this, but we're huge fans of the writer SCOTT SNYDER here at Third Eye. His work on series like BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS, BATMAN: THE BLACK MIRROR, and BATMAN: DEATH OF THE FAMILY, and of course, his incredible AMERICAN VAMPIRE, has been some of our favorite comic book goodness on the stands.
So, to see his incredible horror mini-series SEVERED arriving in graphic novel this Wednesday has us pretty darn happy.
In SEVERED, 12-year-old Jack Garron runs away from home to find his biological father, a wayward minstrel. Along the way he meets up with a traveling salesman whose winning smile is fake, beneath which he hides his real teeth... jagged spikes he uses to eat human flesh.
SEVERED is a chilling, suspenseful read, that delivers a turn-of-the-century kind of horror tale that'll keep you leaving the lights on before bed. It's a CREEPY book, and we highly recommend it to anyone who digs Snyder's other work, or digs cerebral horror like LOCKE & KEY and THE SANDMAN.

MY LITTLE PONY: FRIENDSHIP IS MAGIC #4 ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY CONTINUING IDW'S SUPER POPULAR NEW SERIES!

SNAPSHOT #2 -- ANDY DIGGLE & JOCK'S INCREDIBLE NEW IMAGE SERIES CONTINUES TO DRAW US IN! A MUST-READ!
Andy Diggle & Jock wowed us with their past works on THE LOSERS for VERTIGO and GREEN ARROW YEAR ONE, so we knew SNAPSHOT was gonna totally rule, and folks: rule it does.
A young comic shop employee finds a phone loaded with the pictures of a brutal murder on it.. and now, well, life gets bad.
Our hero finds his life spiraling into a nightmare as he finds himself hunted by the very hit-man who has framed him for murder.
Maybe the victim's daughter can give Jake the key to the mystery -- if he lives that long!
A fantastic slice-of-life post-modern thriller that combines the best of classic noir with a 21st century everyman vibe.
Jock's art looks incredible, and Diggle's writing is on point!
Wanna get caught up? We've got copies of issue #1 in stock now to catch you up to Wednesday's #2.
NO PLACE LIKE HOME VOL.1 TRADE PAPERBACK -- A DARK LOOK AT THE WIZARD OF OZ COURTESY OF IMAGE COMICS!
This little IMAGE series was a fantastic read, and we're pumped to see the trade dropping this Wednesday.
In NO PLACE LIKE HOME, we're shown a very real, very horrific take on the classic WIZARD OF OZ mythos, and we love every second of it.
Dee's life is in turmoil when her parents are killed in a freak tornado. Returning to Kansas for the funeral after five years in LA, Dee discovers Emeraldsville is the same unexciting place it was when she left -- until the bizarre unexplained murders begin.
With an unknown killer closing in, the events of one night in 1959 begin to unravel as a portal to a world of horror opens, a portal paved with yellow bricks.
Collecting the entire 5-issue series, NO PLACE LIKE HOME is a must-read. Snag yourself a copy this Wednesday.
HELLBOY IN HELL #4 -- The Return of Mike Mignola on art for HELLBOY continues as THE definitive HELLBOY story keeps us coming back for more!
We're HUGE fans of HELLBOY, and this latest venture into the world of Hellboy has been one of the best we've read in ages!
HELLBOY IN HELL serves as THE perfect place to start reading Mike Mignola's pulp / gothic horror mash-up, as it's a great, new reader friendly jumping on point.
After the oh-so-bizarre family reunion in the last issue, Hellboy can barely process the new information he's received, and the things he's done, since arriving in Hell.
But, Mike Mignola has one more revelation before concluding this initial monthly run of the story he's been building to since the Seed of Destruction.
Folks: I can't even begin to sum up in just a paragraph or two about why Hellboy is a shining example of everything we love in comics, especially when Mike Mignola is handling both story and art.
If you took Jack Kirby, Hammer horror films, and a big healthy dose of the X-Files and threw 'em in a blender, you'd get the awesomeness that is HELLBOY.
Wanna get on board? We've got issues 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to current.
