Celebrate the Dream King's Return with us at Third Eye this Wednesday & Get a FREE copy of the original "THE SANDMAN" #1 (while supplies last)
Folks, here is what I can say is probably our own personal most anticipated new release of 2013.
I mean: it's the return of Neil Gaiman to THE SANDMAN, and that, that my friends, is a huge, huge deal.
For those of you who may not have read author Neil Gaiman's THE SANDMAN, this is the perfect opportunity to find out why this series is so highly regarded, and has been praised by everyone from within the comic industry and from outside of it. It's one of the most remarkable pieces of horror / fantasy from the last century, and deserves a TON of credit for ushering comics into the new golden age they've been seeing over the course of the last decade.
This new limited 6-issue series from NEIL GAIMAN (AMERICAN GODS, 1602, and much more) and JH WILLIAMS (PROMETHEA, BATWOMAN) is everything you could want from an incredible comic and more.
Taking place before the events of the now-classic 'THE SANDMAN' series that changed the landscape of modern comics over 25 years ago, OVERTURE tells the complete origin of The Sandman.
From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, the SANDMAN: OVERTURE takes you through the entire Dreaming, featuring special cameos by fan-favorites such as THE CORINTHIAN, MERV PUMPKINHEAD, and of course, the rest of the Endless: DEATH, DESIRE, DESPAIR, DELIRIUM, DESTRUCTION & DESTINY.
Most importantly, this shows us exactly WHAT happened to Morpheus to make it possible for him to be captured in the very first issue of the original SANDMAN series.
Now, we get to find out -- and along the way, we'll learn the secrets of the Endless that Neil Gaiman has kept to himself for over 25 years.
Whether you're an old school fan from way back, or you've never read THE SANDMAN but have been waiting for the perfect place to jump into it -- SANDMAN: OVERTURE is THE Perfect place to get started.
I cannot stress enough how fantastic this comic will be, and how important THE SANDMAN itself is to comics.

SAGA #15 -- Third Eye's favorite monthly series continues, as SAGA delivers that unique blend of FIREFLY-style sci-fi & GAME OF THRONES fantasy storytelling perfectly again and again!
Folks, by now, you know: this is our favorite book. Bar none, it's something that the entire team of Third Eye can pretty much agree is amazing. Every single issue. We can't deny it: it's that good, all the way through.
We're not even going to tease you with the details of this week's issue #15, but we will say this: it's awesome, as expected. Heck, even more so!
Not reading SAGA? You need to be. This series about a man and a woman from two different alien races that just so happen to be at war, and how they've fallen in love and had a kid that has pretty much sealed their fate as wanted crimnials by both of their planets is THE BEST in terms of storytelling, artwork, and well, just about everything.
Imagine the snappy dialogue, and clever character-building of Joss Whedon's FIREFLY mixed with the mature themes and political elements of A GAME OF THRONES. Toss in the epic scale of the STAR WARS TRILOGY, and you've got SAGA.
Great writing, great storytelling, this is MUST-READ stuff

IMAGE COMICS'S DYSTOPIANS SCI-FI SPACE MARINE EPIC PLANETOID ARRIVES IN TRADE PAPERBACK THIS WEDNESDAY
We loved last year's PLANETOID from IMAGE COMICS which brought us a very ALIENS / WARHAMMER 40K esque riff on science fiction with it's barren landscapes, harsh techno-organic inhabitants, and the main character's space marine pasts.
In PLANETOID, Silas, an ex-soldier turned space pirate, finds himself stranded on a mysterious planet in alien territory.
As he explores long-abandoned industrial ruins of the planet's surface, he will have to fend off roving cyborg militias and a hostile alien military with a bounty on his head.
Ultimately, Silas will have to build a coalition amongst the planetoid's nomadic tribes in order to make a final stand against the larger tyrannical forces that rule over them.
Written and illustrated by Ken Garing, Planetoid is a MUST-READ for fans of MOEBIUS, Brandon Graham's PROPHET, films like ALIENS, and the dystopian settings of WARHAMMER 40K.
A dark, unrelenting science fiction story that's action-packed, we give this one a HIGH recommendation.

The biggest issue of Spidey to arrive since last year's AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #700 hits this week, as a MAJOR shift in the direction of the title begins
In SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #20, new beginnings and new twists spin out of the previous arc, NECESSARY EVIL, as Spidey and the Black Cat find themselves teaming up.
Felicia had always cared for the Spider more than the man, but what happens when that man is Otto Octavius?
And, a day Otto has finally been waiting for.... is the world ready for Dr. Peter Parker? And, what he plans to do next?
We have a VERY limited quantity of the J. Scott Campbell variant (1:50 ratio) of this one coming in, so if you want one -- please shoot us a hold request!
This issue also marks a great jumping on point for new readers who've been looking to get into SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN. As one of our favorite MARVEL books for the last year, we highly recommend snagging issue #20 and finding out what all the fuss is about.

Third Eye Faithful, you know us: we love REVIVAL. We've been singing the praises of this incredible new IMAGE series since it's debut, and by now, many of you probably already know how awesome the book is.
In Revival, for one day in rural central Wisconsin, the dead came back to life. Now it's up to Officer Dana Cypress to deal with the media scrutiny, religious zealots, and government quarantine that has come with them.
In a town where the living have to learn to deal with those who are supposed to be dead, Officer Cypress must solve a brutal murder, and everyone, alive or undead, is a suspect.
Imagine the rural noir of FARGO or OLD COUNTRY FOR NO MEN blended with the supernatural chills of THE EXORCIST or WALKING DEAD.

It's been a minute since we've paid close attention to the SUPERMAN titles, but folks, I gotta tell you: things are about to get really interesting with the upcoming KRYPTON RETURNS story arc that starts in this week's ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2.
Last year's H'el on Earth was a sleeper hit, and now, the killer new Superman villain's machinations are still being dealt with, as we see his eventual return.
What does this mean to the Universe? Superman, Supergirl and Superboy are enlisted by the Oracle to go back to their homeworld and correct what the villainous H'el has done.
This epic adventure spans eons, from Krypton's savage past of Clones to the very minutes before Kal-El's ship is sent into space.
You only THINK you know what happened in the last days of Krypton.
If you're even remotely a SUPERMAN fan, folks: we highly recommend jumping aboard with this week's ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2, and starting the KRYPTON RETURNS arc.
This is a four part arc, which begins in ACTION COMICS ANNUAL #2, continues into SUPERBOY #25, SUPERGIRL #25, and then concludes in SUPERMAN #25.

We're TOTALLY digging the heck out of WILD BLUE YONDER, and we're stoked to see the third issue dropping this Wednesday.
In a post-apocalyptic future where the Earth is pretty much uninhabitable, and humanity has taken to living in the skies, WILD BLUE YONDER is loaded with sweet plane dog fights, air pirates, and ray guns. It kicks butt in every sense.
In this third issue, Tug learns that before he can become a full member of the Dawn, he will have to pass one last test -- getting past Scram.
Plus, the crew of the Dawn will be put to the test when an unexpected attack comes from the irradiated Sky-Pirates.
