IMAGE DEBUTS IT'S NEXT MEGA-HIT SERIES WITH THIS WEDNESDAY'S
JUPITER'S LEGACY #1
Fans of Saga & East of West: meet your next favorite series!
From the writer of KICK-ASS, SUPERIOR & more!
Folks: I love this time of year. Why? It's because the publishers always begin to launch their biggest series around this time of year.
Whether it's Marvel, DC, or IMAGE, everyone has something exciting to debut, and we are totally pumped about this week's IMAGE offering: JUPITER'S LEGACY.
I've been excited about this book since I first heard about it over a year ago, because it's two of our all-time favorite creators: MARK MILLAR, the legendary writer behind books like KICK-ASS, SUPERIOR, NEMESIS, WANTED, and SUPERMAN RED SON, and FRANK QUITELY, the artist behind Morrison's BATMAN AND ROBIN, THE AUTHORITY, and Grant Morrison's NEW X-MEN.
In Jupiter's Legacy, Millar and Quitely give us the superhero epic that all future superhero epics will be measured by.
The world's greatest heroes have grown old, and their legacy is a poisonous one to the children who will never live up to their unremarkable parents.
Imagine the in-fighting, intrigue, and politicking of A GAME OF THRONES mixed with THE JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA and the icons of Greek Myth.
If you've been digging other premiere IMAGE series like EAST OF WEST and SAGA, then DO NOT MISS Jupiter's Legacy.
Also, like EAST OF WEST and SAGA, this is going to be one you're going to want to make sure you've got a nice copy stashed away -- trust us. ;)

UNCANNY X-MEN #5 -- Cyclops's Relentless Training Methods Revealed!
We are totally loving the direction that Marvel has been taking with their X-Books, and with ALL NEW X-MEN writer BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS also handling writing chores on UNCANNY X-MEN, the books have a shared vision and cohesion that makes them work extremely well together.
In this week's issue #5, Frazer Irving, who is one of our favorite artists working in comics today, joins the book as the interior artist for this arc, and helps show us just what it's like to be a student under the harsh command of Scott Summers.
Highly recommended, UNCANNY X-MEN is a gritty, fast-moving, and action-packed look at Cyclops as he does whatever it takes to protect the future of mutantkind.

Grant Morrison's epic nearly decade long run of BATMAN nears it's conclusion in BATMAN INCORPORATED, as we countdown to the final 12th issue with this week's #10.
Okay, so, fair warning: we're huge GRANT MORRISON fans here at Third Eye, so just about anything he does, we're all over it.
With BATMAN INCORPORATED, Morrison is bringing his nearly decade long run of BATMAN (which began with the monumental BATMAN AND SON arc) to a close, as the series will complete with issue #12 and Morrison will walk away from a character he's become very closely identified with.
In just the last two months, Morrison has tied up so much of his run in a very fascinating way, with the spotlight being cast on the death of Batman's son and the most recent Robin, Damian Wayne.
Now, Batman must deal with the death of his own son, and a loss o family that's all too familiar, but at the same time, all too new, to the Dark Knight.
In this issue, Batman finds himself in an unlikely allegiance with AZRAEL... and, the cover seems to hint that he may have been exposed to the Man-Bat formula.
Folks: this run has been an incredible piece of work, and we highly recommend it.

EAST OF WEST #2 -- The Biggest IMAGE Hit Since SAGA Continues this Wednesday -- and we cannot wait! One of the most complete and entertaining comics of the year!
Enter the Apocalypse: YEAR ONE.
Folks: I cannot stress how freakin' great this series is turning out to be. EAST OF WEST is one of those one-of-a-kind, just plain special books, that come out of nowhere and take us all by storm.
From the artwork to the storytelling, this book is the total package, and delivers some of the most satisfying comic book storytelling on the stands today.
And, this is all after just ONE issue!
Seriously, just like I ranted and I raved last year about how fantastic SAGA was, I'm doing the same here with EAST OF WEST, this book is off-the-chain incredible.
What's the scoop on this series? During the CIVIL WAR, the Apocalypse happens, and the world is brought down around humanity.
The U.S is divided into 7 nations, and they're all at war with one another.
And, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, born at the dawn of the Apocalypse, may be humanity's only hope.
Following the high crimes in the debut issue of EAST OF WEST, the falllout spreads across the broken nations of America.
Forces align to stave off the apocalypse, while equally powerful ones do everything they can to bring it to pass.
One of the most exciting and compelling reads we've seen in a while, EAST OF WEST blends science fiction and fantasy into one incredible story that does not disappoint.
I can't stress it enough, Third Eye Faithful, this is the book you want to be reading. It'll blow your mind!

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #2 ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY, CONTINUING ONE OF THE BIGGEST MARVEL RELEASES OF 2013!
From the writer of ALL NEW X-MEN and the artist of OLD MAN LOGAN
Dude! Who'd have thought GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY would turn itself into one of the heavyweight, top tier marquee books of the MARVEL NOW? We're freakin' stoked on this series, as it's delivering some of the best writing and artwork on the stands today with a fresh cast of characters.
Combining the policital intrigue, and complex character-building of a story like A GAME OF THRONES with bigger-than-life BATTLESTAR GALACTICA-style sci-fi thriller storytelling... all against the backdrop of the Marvel Universe, Guardians totally rocks us in every way.
While London deals with the brutal Badoon invasion, the fate of the Guardians of the Galaxy is decided... millions of miles away.
Bendis, the writer of ALL NEW X-MEN and more, is creating pure magic here, as he redefines and reintroduces the awesomeness of the Guardians. McNiven's art looks the best it's looked since his work on the classic OLD MAN LOGAN. The two together? DYNAMITE comic book goodness, Third Eye Faithful.

HELHEIM #2 -- A GAME OF THRONES meets WALKING DEAD
We are so stoked on this brand new Oni Press series that kicked off from SIXTH GUN / DEADPOOL KILLS THE MARVEL UNIVERSE writer CULLEN BUNN and superstar artist JOELLE JONES.

One of our favorite comic series, by far, is INVINCIBLE, and we know that many of you guys love to follow it in the gorgeous, oversized hardcover format known as the ULTIMATE Collections. So, we figured it'd only be fair to give a shout out to this week's INVINCIBLE VOL.8 Ultimate HC edition.

Never read INVINCIBLE before? What's it all about? Here's the scoop: Written by WALKING DEAD creator ROBERT KIRKMAN, so it shares the same kind of strong plotting, character build-up, and jaw-dropping twists, INVINCIBLE is the story of Mark Grayson.
Mark's just like most everyone else his age. The only major difference being that his dad is the most powerful superhero on the planet!
And, Mark, seems to be inheriting his father's powers... but, there's a twist so good in the very beginning of the run, that we can't ruin it here for you, just trust us: it's worthy of Kirkman's shocks and twists from WALKING DEAD.
From there, we're taken on a journey into the most compelling, realistically written superhero comic on the stands.

LOST VEGAS #2 -- Image's new CASINO ROYALE meets SAGA-style sci-fi thriller has us totally hooked!
We are totally digging Jim McCann (writer of MIND THE GAP) and his killer sci-fi thriller LOST VEGAS. This stellar new series takes the quirky humor of The Hitchhiker's Guide, mixes with the mature sci-fi themes of SAGA, and introduces the slickness of Casino Royale.
