IMAGE COMICS DEBUTS RICK REMENDER (Uncanny X-Force: The Dark Angel Saga) and MATTEO SCALERA'S BLACK SCIENCE #1 this Wednesday.
Dude: we are so freakin' amped for this comic. Right now, right here -- this is the comic of the week, I'm calling it.
Seriously: your minds are about to be blown. In the tradition of other major IMAGE COMICS releases like SAGA, EAST OF WEST, and PRETTY DEADLY; BLACK SCIENCE looks to be one of the most promising top shelf reads from the publisher this Fall.
Rick Remender has been one of the most promising writers rising through the ranks over the last few years, with his exciting runs on UNCANNY X-FORCE DARK ANGEL SAGA, CAPTAIN AMERICA MARVEL NOW, and his own FEAR AGENT saga, and then pairing him up with the uber talented Matteo Scalera for BLACK SCIENCE is a HUGE deal.
OK, so obviously, it's IMAGE, so you know the mark of quality is surely there -- but, what else makes BLACK SCIENCE so gosh-darn special?
In BLACK SCIENCE, former member of the anarchistic order of scientists, Grant McKay has finally done the impossible; he has deciphered BLACK SCIENCE and punched through the barriers of reality.
But, what lay beyond the veil was not epiphany but chaos. Now Grant and his team are lost, living ghosts shipwrecked on an infinite ocean of alien worlds, barreling through the dark realms, long forgotten, ancient and unimaginable.
The only way is forward.
The only question is how far are they willing to go get to get home again?
Does this not sound EPIC? Holy crap: we're in. We're in. We're in!
Seriously though, we've been lucky enough to see some advance shots on this one, and the artwork is gorgeous, and Remender is at his best here. He brings the manic raw energy and big ideas that he threw at us in FEAR AGENT and FRANKENCASTLE, and combines it with the surgical world building of his X-FORCE: THE DARK ANGEL SAGA run.
Scalera and White are a dynamite art team, as they bring Remender's lush, alien worlds to life in pure style.
Folks, this one comes with a Third Eye stamp of approval -- you buy it, and don't like it? We'll give you your money back. Seriously. Trust us: you're gonna love it!

A brand new story arc begins in this week's FIVE GHOSTS #7 with LOST COASTLINES Chapter 1.
After the initial arc, the HAUNTING OF FABIAN GRAY, which introduced us to the compelling world of Fabian Gray and Five Ghosts... we're stoked to see the adventure continuing, as everyone's favorite treasure-hunter embarks on an all-new pulp adventure.
Folks, if you haven't started reading FIVE GHOSTS yet, you gotta get into this one. It truly is one of the most satisfying reads on the stands, as Frank J.

The Samurai. The Vampire. The Detective. The Archer. The Wizard.

THE MAXX: MAXXIMIZED #1 BRINGS SAM KIETH'S MASTERPIECE BACK IN A MONTHLY SERIES, FEATURING REMASTERED ARTWORK AND COLORING!
ONE OF THE BEST COMICS OF ALL-TIME!
Man, Third Eye Faithful, are we stoked to see THE MAXX back and available for you to check out -- we grew up on this book, and it truly does stand the test of time as one of the best comics on the stands.
If there was one comic coming out during the '90s from IMAGE that really hinted at what the publisher had potential to become what it is now -- it was THE MAXX.
Now, Sam Kieth, the series creator, is bringing the MAXX back to us in a monthly series, giving the full experience to us all over again.
MAXX: MAXXIMIZED is a re-mastered version of the series, with revised coloring, all overseen by Kieth.
The MAXX itself is one of the coolest stories of all-time, with a combination of strong, character-driven storytelling and surrealist fantasy landscapes.
It tells the story of a homeless person who lives in a box and moves back and forth between our reality and 'The Outback', a heroic fantasy realm.
He is aided and accompanied by Julie Winters, a social worker in our world and a beautiful jungle princess in The Outback.
Kieth manages to combine the entertainment of everyday humor and downright touching heartfelt moments with the bigger-than-life epic feel of a fantasy saga.
Whether you've read the MAXX before, or never have -- we highly recommend giving this one a go, Third Eye Faithful!
BATMAN INCORPORATED VOL.2: GOTHAM'S MOST WANTED COLLECTS THE STUNNING CONCLUSION TO GRANT MORRISON'S EPIC BATMAN RUN!
Issues 7-13, as well as the BATMAN INCORPORATED SPECIAL, are collected into this hardcover which serves as the final part of Grant Morrison's epic, nearly decade long run on the Dark Knight.
Personally, Morrison's work on the Caped Crusader, is some of the most important since Neal Adams's, in my opinion.
While there's been a lot of great writers who've taken the character and made some awesome stories, Morrison's run really added new dimensions to Batman, and transformed the landscape of Gotham itself.
In GOTHAM'S MOST WANTED, Batman and his allies must strengthen their resolve as Leviathan moves against Gotham City.
Everything since issue #1 of BATMAN INC, and heck, since the very beginning of Morrison's run, has been leading to the tragic moment in which Damian Wayne pays the ultimate price in the war against crime.
Featuring art by the incredibly talented Chris Burnham, BATMAN INC VOL.2 is a must-have for any BATMAN fan.
Never read the Morrison BATMAN stuff before? We recommend starting with BATMAN AND SON, and then catching up from there, or you can jump straight into BATMAN INC with BATMAN INC VOL.1
All in stock & available now!
THE GOLD, THE GUTS, AND THE GROG CONTINUES IN THIS WEDNESDAY'S RAT QUEENS #3!
Imagine TANK GIRL by way of LORD OF THE RINGS, and that sums up the feel of one of our favorite new IMAGE titles, RAT QUEENS.
One tablespoon of cayenne peppers, 2 ounces of 100 proof vodka, and 3 ounces of tomato juice makes one fantastic Bloody Murder.
So does double-crossing the Rat Queens and foolishly thinking you can get away with it -- drink up!
Seriously tho: RAT QUEENS rocks. Set in a sword-and-sorceyr world akin to Dungeons & Dragons, the Rat Queens are four kick-ass women who hunt monsters to score treasure, and drink whole lotta liquor along the way.
Bloody as all get out -- with a wicked sense of humor, RAT QUEENS is one of our favorite books on the stands, and we highly recommend hopping on board.
We've got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to get you up to speed.
HAWKEYE #14 -- Our favorite monthly Marvel series continues to kick-ass as LADY HAWKEYE takes the stage!
You know that thing that happened to Kate Bishop in the HAWKEYE ANNUAL? Now, it's getting followed up on in this week's issue #14 of Third Eye favorite HAWKEYE.
This one has it all -- characters, plot, story, dialogue, theme, meaning, message, action.... heck, a little explosion, fire, arrows, criminals, neighbors, large bodies of water, clients, cops who don't care, a system that victimizes the victims, the dog.... heck, what more could you ask for in an issue of HAWKEYE?
In a broken town where cynicism and apathy has its claws around the throat of the good and decent, Lady Hawkeye is the ONLY hero you can trust.
Fraction & Aja continue to kick-ass and take names on what has quickly become one of our favorite monthly titles.
Wanna catch up? We've got issues 1-13 in stock to get you current, or you can snag the first couple trades and catch up from there!
