BATMAN AND RED ROBIN #19 -- THE NEW ROBIN DEBUTS THIS WEDNESDAY AS "DARK KNIGHT RETURNS" Carrie Kelley joins the DC NEW 52!
Dark Knight Returns has stood the test of time as one of THE coolest BATMAN graphic novels of all time... without a doubt. And, we're totally pumped to see how DC plans to incorporate one of the most endearing Robins ever into the NEW 52 with the arrival of CARRIE KELLEY as the new Robin.
As long-time fans of Frank Miller's classic DARK KNIGHT RETURNS saga, it's so freakin' exciting and intriguing to see the Robin of that story being brought in as the new Robin for Batman in the post-Damian Wayne DCU.
This is a fresh, jumping on point for what is already one of the best of the Bat-Titles.
Tomasi and Gleason have taken this title, and from the ground-up, they've built it into the definition of a fan-favorite.
This book quietly climbs our stack each month as the best of the BATMAN books that's not Snyder / Capullo's BATMAN.. and sometimes: it's darn close when it comes to that race.
With this classic-in-the-making landmark issue, we highly recommend jumping on board an already awesome book, and finding out what all the fuss is about.
PLUS: it's Carrie Kelley from DARK KNIGHT RETURNS.
THAT'S REASON ENOUGH! This is crazy stuff -- and nearly two decades ago, when I was a kid reading DKR, did I think that they'd be taking things in this direction -- that's how awesome this is.

Meet the writer, DUANE SWIERCZYNSKI, at Third Eye on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY May 4th!
Duane Swierczynski is no stranger to delving into the criminal underworld, with scores of great crime novels under his belt, and some incredible comics work, including his recent run of JUDGE DREDD.
Now, in X, he's taking us into some very dark territory, and we're loving it.
Three crime lords in the decaying city of Arcadia have received photographic death sentences from the mysterious "X KILLER."
Their cunning defenses won't stop Arcadia's vigilante from making sure each one of them suffers in every way imaginable.
Incredibly ultra-violent, and totally kick-ass, X is a must-read from the same publishers who brought you recent favorites like COLDER and BLACK BEETLE.

SCOTT SNYDER & GREG CAPULLO BEGIN TO HEAD INTO THEIR YEAR ZERO STORYLINE WITH BATMAN #19 THIS WEDNESDAY
Third Eye Faithful, we've been telling you and telling you: BATMAN by SCOTT SNYDER & GREG CAPULLO is the gold standard of superhero comics in the modern age, and we mean it every time.
First, they wowed us with the COURT OF OWLS and it's fallout, then they kept us on the edges of our seat with the return of The Joker in DEATH OF THE FAMILY, and now, they're preparing to take us into YEAR ZERO, and we cannot wait.
If you're still not reading the BEST Batman book on the stands, this week's issue #19, featuring a totally killer gatefold cover, is THE perfect place to jump on board the book.
Wanna start from the beginning? We've got the BATMAN COURT OF OWLS VOL.1 graphic novel in stock now to get you started, with issues 1-7, and then we can either catch you up with single issues 8-18, or you can snag the NIGHT OF OWLS and CITY OF OWLS graphic novels and then hop on with BATMAN #13.
No matter what, YOU NEED TO BE READING THIS BOOK!
Get into it, this Wednesday!
MEGA MAN vs. SONIC THE HEDGEHOG? YES! And, it's all starting in this Wednesday's MEGA MAN #24 *WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE CHAPTER 1* -- Jump on board now!
Who doesn't love MEGA MAN and SONIC THE HEDGEHOG? Two of the most endearing characters in video game history -- we're totally stoked to see these icons coming together in this new crossover in their respective books.
In WORLDS COLLIDE chapter one, the Mega Man / Sonic the Hedgehog epic kicks off with a bang as the Blue Blur and Blue Bomber meet for the first time!
And considering how hard they're fighting each other, it may be the last!
Why are the heroes trying to take each other down? Drs. Eggman and Wily know, and they're loving every minute of it!
As a side-note, the MEGA MAN comics are surprisingly really deep and well put together. The first arc goes into all these cool angles exploring the ethics behind MegaMan murdering other robots in cold blood, and even though they're "evil" robots -- it's still murder, considering his own origins. How does he deal with such a heavy issue?
We'd recommend grabbing that first Mega Man trade, collecting the first arc, and giving it a go.
ULTRON #1 -- Meet the son of.. ULTRON!
In this week's ULTRON #1, we have a direct tie in to the AGE OF ULTRON, as we meet young Victor Mancha, last seen in the pages of Brian K. Vaughan's now classic RUNAWAYS series.
What happens when Ultron takes over the world, kills all the heroes, and.... is your dad?
When you're Victor Mancha, android teen "Runaway", 'daddy issues' doesn't quite cover it.
We're pretty stoked to see how this one plays out, and how it ties into the grander scheme of things with the AGE OF ULTRON.
WALKING DEAD #109 -- FOLLOWING THE DEBUT OF EZEKIEL, ANOTHER MAJOR CHARACTER MAKES THEIR FIRST APPEARANCE THIS WEEK IN WALKING DEAD #109
WALKING DEAD continues to deliver some of the best damn twists, turns, and compelling characters in comics, and this week's #109 is another major landmark, as it features the first appearance of Brianna -- a new character that will become a major part of the cast of the series.
Great art, great storytelling, folks, you and I both know it: WALKING DEAD always delivers an incredible read.
Get the WALKING DEAD #109 Sketch Cover As Well While Supplies Last
In addition, WALKING DEAD #109 will have two covers, a regular cover, and then this blank sketch variant printed on a different paper stock so that you can have someone sketch on it for you at a convention or signing. Pretty rad, eh?
We'll have plenty of both in stock this week, Third Eye Faithful!
BATMAN: LI'L GOTHAM #1 -- THIS IS TOO AWESOME FOR WORDS.
Folks: I'm gonna tell you right now, this book is going to be a must-have. I mean: literally, it is AWESOME. There's no description necessary -- it's just THAT awesome.
But, in case you're wondering, here's the skinny: first, Robin needs Batman's help to learn the true meaning of Halloween.
Then, on Thanksgiving, Batman and Robin join the families of Gotham City around the table for a holiday feast -- and birds of a feather flock together to stage a march against the city... led by the Penguin!
Totally ridiculous, cutesy versions of all your favorite BATMAN characters find themselves getting into all sorts of ridiculous misadventures.
A must-have, through and through.
GI JOE: COBRA FILES #1 BEGINS THIS WEDNESDAY, TAKING A DARK, MODERN LOOK AT THE INDIVIDUALS WHO MAKE UP THE DEADLY COBRA ORGANIZATION
The new GI JOE books that recently relaunched have been fantastic, with both GI JOE and SPECIAL MISSIONS, delivering kick-ass reads from start to finish.
Now, we get to venture into the other side of the war, with the arrival of GI JOE: COBRA FILES #1.
Her name is Chameleon -- and she used to be a COBRA agent. Now she's made her way into the GI JOE team -- the honest way.
But, even with the best of intentions, does she have what it takes to fight on the side of angels?
Flint thinks she does, and he's willing to gamble the lives of his teammates on her.. unfortunately, with the Crimson Twin called TOMAX pulling the strings, no bet is a sure thing.
Folks, another kick-ass installment into the world of IDW's GI JOE line, we give this one a strong recommendation if you're digging the other Joe books.
UNCANNY X-MEN #4 -- CYCLOPS'S REVOLUTION CONTINUES IN THIS WEDNESDAY'S UNCANNY X-MEN AS MAGIK TAKES CENTER STAGE!
We've been totally loving both Bendis's ALL NEW X-MEN, and his UNCANNY X-MEN, as he brings the X-Books a fresh new spin that we haven't seen in ages.
In UNCANNY X-MEN, the focus is on CYCLOPS and his team of mutants who plan to carry out Cyclops's goals by any means necessary.
In an almost Magneto-esque kind of way, Cyclops is set to do whatever it takes to preserve and protect the mutant race, even if it causes others to perceive him as a villain.
In this week's UNCANNY X-MEN #4, the question is asked: how is Magik the only one of the Phoenix Five to come out of the experience unscathed?
And, what strange thing is happening to one of the other members of the UNCANNY X-MEN?
Wanna get caught up? We've got issues 1-3 in stock now to get you caught up to this week's #4.
Brian Wood's stellar STAR WARS ongoing continues to impress, in this Wednesday's STAR WARS #4
We are absolutely in love with the current run of STAR WARS by DMZ / NORTHLANDERS / THE MASSIVE scribe BRIAN WOOD, and cannot wait to see where he takes it next.
As Princess Leia's stealth squadron lays a trap for the spy within their ranks, she soon realizes that the Rebels are ill prepared for the Empire's zealous pursuit.
Meanwhile, Han Solo flees from the Empire through the lower levels of Coruscant, and Luke Skywalker enjoys being grounded with a female friend...
Set during the era between A NEW HOPE and EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, this series chronicles what happens in the STAR WARS Universe following the aftermath of the Death Star's destruction, but before the battle of Hoth.
An incredible read, this book is the definition of MUST-READ, and we highly recommend jumping on if you haven't already.

SLEDGEHAMMER '44 #2 CONCLUDES THE FIRST DEBUT SERIES OF MIKE MIGNOLA'S IRON GIANT
We're totally, totally digging Mike Mignola's output this year, and this little 2-part series bringing the debut of a brand new character, is an awesome slice of Mignola goodness.
Outgunned and outnumbered by an army of Nazis, a group of GIs must band together and unleash the Hyperborean power of the mysterious man in the iron suit in order to make it home safely.
Who doesn't love seeing a giant Iron Prometheus beat down some no-good Nazis?

Imagine the TV series LOUIE, but starring Hawkeye -- that's how we feel about HAWKEYE, and we love it. Slice-of-life everyman storytelling meets the Marvel Universe, and it's downright addictive.
In this week's HAWKEYE #9, it's more ladies, more problems.
Featuring: the Girlfriend, the Work-Wife, and the Ex-Wife.
Plus: the tracksuits are back and aim to kill.
Good luck, Hawkeye.

In the aftermath of INVINCIBLE #100, the INVINCIBLE universe expands into a new ongoing companion series with INVINCIBLE UNIVERSE #1.
We have been hooked on Robert Kirkman's totally awesome INVINCIBLE series for as long as we can remember, and with over 100 issues of kick-as storytelling and non-stop action under its belt; it's no secret that INVINCIBLE is every bit as good as Kirkman's other series: the WALKING DEAD.
In the aftermath of INVINCIBLE 100, Dinosaurus has left his mark on the world.
Can heroes from across the universe -- Invincible, the Guardians of the Globe, Tech Jacket, the Astounding Wolf-Man and more -- contain the damage done?
Or are the end times of the INVINCIBLE UNIVERSE ahead?
Jump on board this Wednesday.

We are totally into the SWAMP THING run that SCOTT SNYDER delivered in the NEW 52, and are totally stoked to see the second volume arriving this Wednesday with SWAMP THING VOL.2 FAMILY TREE.
In this second collection, SWAMP THING must battle his way through the Bone Kingdom and the Rot to free his ally -- and ex-girlfriend -- Abigail Arcane.
But will the cost of freeing her be.. fighting her? Nothing, not even this titanic battle, will prepare Swampy for what he has to face next: a resurrected and even more dangerous Anton Arcane.
Snyder, who's wowed us with his BATMAN work on COURT OF OWLS and DEATH OF THE FAMILY, as well as AMERICAN VAMPIRE, does an incredible job of capturing the eerie horror chills of Alan Moore's SWAMP THING while blending them nicely with the modern DC Universe.
Yanick Paquette may be the best SWAMP THING artist we've seen since Bernie Wrightson, bringing the world of the Green to life in a vibrant, and compelling way.
The two, brought together, make some of the best damn SWAMP THING comics we've read in quite some time.
Highly recommended, Third Eye Faithful, you cannot go wrong with SWAMP THING.
