Jeff Lemire, the superstar creator behind SWEET TOOTH, ANIMAL MAN (New52), & more debuts TRILLIUM #1 this Wednesday
So, if you come in the shop this week, and you ask us: what's the coolest freakin' thing out this week -- we're gonna tell you it's TRILLIUM, 'cause... IT IS!
Seriously, folks: this is pure, plain and simple GOOD COMICS, and we are totally pumped to see what's next in this new series from SWEET TOOTH and ANIMAL MAN writer JEFF LEMIRE.
This series may be the coolest sci-fi series we've seen debut since SAGA first showed up; and we mean that. While it's a completely different tone and realm than SAGA, it carries that same remarkable standard of high quality reading that makes SAGA so damn special.
What's it about? It's the year 3797, and botanist Nika Temsmith is researching a strange species on a remote science station near the outermost rim of colonized space.
It's the year 1921, and renowned English explorer William Pike leads an expedition into the dense jungles of Peru in search of the fabled "Lost Temple of the Incals," an elusive sanctuary said to have strange healing properties.
Two disparate souls separated by thousands of years and hundreds of millions of miles.
Yet they will fall in love and, as a result, bring about the end of the universe.
Even though reality is unravelling all around them, nothing can pull them apart.
This isn't just a love story; it's the LAST love story ever told.
8 issues of rich historical adventure and mind-bedning science fiction combined into a sprawling, unconventional love story that will leave you on the edge of your seats.
Comics like Trillium are why we love comics.
Get it this Wednesday, Third Eye Faithful!

SHELTERED #2 -- THE PRE-APOCALYPTIC IMAGE ONGOING SERIES CONTINUES TO IMPRESS!
Meet the creators at Third Eye on Friday 9/6!
We love this new series from IMAGE comics, which puts a whole new spin on the survival horror genre.. and takes it into pre-apocalyptic territory, instead of post-apocalyptic.
Focusing on a community of Doomsday Preppers, who finds themselves facing the end times in a way they never expected: at the hands of their own children.
I don't want to ruin the twists about WHAT the end actually is, but I'm telling you: it's a fascinating take on the survival horror concept.
In SHELTERED, the men and women of Safe Haven have been preparing for any -- and all -- end of world scenarios for years. However, their bunkers, weapons and training can't save them from the one threat they could've never expected: their kids.
Now, in this week's issue #2, the children of Safe Haven have their parents' blood on their hands, and are beginning to splinter as doubt is cast on their leader, Lucas.
New arrival Victoria finds that escaping from a compound built to keep others out is near-impossible.
But, what's the twist? What's bringing the end times?
We're gonna let you read issue 1 to find out -- 'cause the series is that good!
Wanna hop on board? We've got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #2.

ALL NEW X-MEN #15 -- Jean Grey & the Beast?
One of our favorite Marvel titles on the stands, and quite possibly the best X-Book we've followed in ages, continues to impress the hell out of us this week with ALL NEW X-MEN #15.
In this week's issue, love is in the air... and Cyclops heart and future start to fade before his eyes.
This book is so freakin' good, it's almost hard to put into words. Everything you'd want in an X-Men book and more.
What's the driving plot behind ALL NEW X-MEN? In the aftermath of AVENGERS VS. X-MEN, the Beast is dismayed at the way his fellow team-mates have turned out over the years.. and wants to figure out how to fix everything that went wrong.
While he doesn't quite do that, he does succeed in bringing the original X-MEN back from the past into the present day...including the younger version of himself.
That's right: the original FIRST CLASS of X-MEN, featuring Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, the Beast, and Angel.. before they were tainted by the Phoenix, Apocalypse, and their own jaded disappointment in how their fight for mutantkind and humanity's harmony has turned out.
