RAT QUEENS #1 -- DUNGEONS & DRAGONS meets TANK GIRL!
A Must-Read New IMAGE Series!
Meet the entire creative team this Saturday 9/25 at THIRD EYE, featuring writer KURTIS J. WIEBE (PETER PANZERFAUST).
Folks, we are so totally pumped for RAT QUEENS, and now, it's here -- and we gotta tell you: this is going to be one of your favorite new books of the Fall. We promise you that.
Imagine a the foul-mouthed charm of Tank Girl, the rock-n-roll hip of The Runaways, and the sweeping, fantasy landscapes of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS, and that sums up RAT QUEENS perfectly.
Gold, Guts & Grog -- Who are the RAT QUEENS? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they're in the business of killing all gods' creatures for profit.
It's also a darkly comedic fantasy series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, and Betty the Hippy Hobbit Thief.
This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that'll remind you of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER meets TANK GIRL in a LORD OF THE RINGS world on crack.
An ongoing series, RAT QUEENS comes to us courtesy of red-hot PETER PANZERFAUST writer KURTIS J. WIEBE, and looks to be one of Image's next breakout hits in the vein of EAST OF WEST, SAGA, MORNING GLORIES, and PETER PANZERFAUST.
Join us on SATURDAY 9/28/13 for a very special RAT QUEENS Release Party featuring the entire creative team of KURTIS J. WIEBE, MEG DEJMAL, and ROC UPCHURCH
Kurtis is returning to Third Eye, and he's making the trip all the way from Canada, along with his RAT QUEENS co-creators MEG DEJMAL and ROC UPCHURCH.
We'll be having the entire team kicking the book off here at Third Eye on Saturday 9/28 11AM-1PM, and we gotta tell you: you're gonna wanna be here for this one.
If you remember how awesome things were at our Peter Panzerfaust signing, and how big that book blew up, then you know that getting a signed copy of RAT QUEENS #1 is a MUST.
PLUS: this is ground zero for one of the biggest IMAGE releases of the Fall, and we're totally honored for Third Eye to be THE destination to kick off the book.

For those of you who have yet to get into SAGA, you gotta try this book. Seriously -- one of THE best comics on the stands, SAGA delivers the best comic book experience in terms of art, storytelling, and beyond, without a doubt.
Imagine the sweeping widescreen science fiction of the STAR WARS TRILOGY mixed with the mature themes and content of A GAME OF THRONES. Throw in some of the snappy dialogue, and genius character-building of Joss Whedon's FIREFLY, and you've got SAGA.

Now, the trial of the century begins as Frank Castle admits to murdering a district attorney -- is this the end of the Punisher's war on crime? Or a new beginning for the bloodthirsty vigilante?
We love Leinil Yu's work, and we're totally pumped for this 2-part mini-series, which ties up the loose ends of the character from the last few years, and sets the stage for the oft-rumored return of GARTH ENNIS to the character.

WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #36 *BATTLE OF THE ATOM CHAPTER 5* -- THE BATTLE OF THE ATOM RAGES ON THIS WEEK!

We've been loving the heck out of BATTLE OF THE ATOM, as it's been one of the best X-MEN crossovers we've seen since the whole MESSIAH COMPLEX / SECOND COMING saga.
What's it all about? Helmed by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS, the writer behind ALL NEW X-MEN and UNCANNY X-MEN, this 10-part crossover chronicles the X-MEN of the future traveling to the present day in order to force the kids of ALL NEW X-MEN (the younger versions of SCOTT, JEAN, and so on that've been dropped into the present day Marvel U) to return to their rightful time, as their presence in the current timeline will result in disastrous consequences.

You know, one of the things that I've looked forward to seeing every Fall is the annual SIMPSONS TREEHOUSE OF HORROR comic one-shots.

THE WAKE #4 -- Batman: COURT OF OWLS, American Vampire, and Batman: BLACK MIRROR writer SCOTT SNYDER delivers another incredible issue of THE WAKE with SEAN MURPHY
Scott Snyder & Sean Murphy's THE WAKE has been one of the big favorites around the store here, and it just continues to get better and better with each issue.
This dark, atmospheric horror masterpiece is reminiscent of John Carpenter's THE THING, with it's creepy vibes, and paranoid settings.
In issue #4, trapped, drowning, dying.. could things get worse for Doctor Lee Archer and her team?
Yes, the ycould.
Much worse, in fact.

Folks, Chris Yost and Marco Checchetto have been making SUPERIOR SPIDEY TEAM-UP a fantastic read. This book hangs up there with the flagship SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN title, and is so much more than just an add-on title.
Yost, who also pens SCARLET SPIDER, is extremely underrated with how well he handles the characters and world of Spidey, and we're loving his take in SUPERIOR TEAM-UP.
As Thanos' forces set their sights on earth, there are few heroes left to answer the battle call!

Plus: on art -- FRANK QUITELY? The legendary artist of ALL STAR SUPERMAN, THE AUTHORITY, and BATMAN AND ROBIN.
The book is literally the definition of dream team, and we're loving every second of it.
In issue #3, the heroes conspire to overthrow the Utopian, discontent rumbling in the bars and the clubs where the sueprheroes get wasted and complain how much he's been holding them all back with his old-fashioned ideas of power and responsibility.
There's a new world out there if they will only grasp it.

An incredible, complex, and sometimes disturbing look at superheroes in a real world context -- Jupiter's Legacy ROCKS.
