DEAD BODY ROAD #1 DEBUTS THIS WEDNESDAY FROM LUTHER STRODE Writer JUSTIN JORDAN
Meet JUSTIN JORDAN this Saturday at our DEAD BODY ROAD #1 Launch Party!
Folks, many of you know that we're huge fans of Justin Jordan's work on the STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE & the LEGEND OF LUTHER STRODE.
This incredible new piece of work from Justin Jordan and the incredibly talented Matteo Scalara (BLACK SCIENCE) is one of our most anticipated IMAGE titles of the winter, and we cannot wait to see how it turns out.
The base concept around DEAD BODY ROAD is very reminiscent of a '70s revenge flick: man's family is killed, he swears to enact vengeance, and fro there, we get one hell of a trip.
Imagine the Punisher -- if written by the man who brought you LUTHER STRODE. Sounds awesome? Yeah, we thought so!
The men involved in Gage's wife's death must pay, and if it turns him into a monster himself -- then so be it.
Emotionally and mentally drained, there's no elaborate plan for Gage, just one mission: revenge!
We don't want to give too much away, but folks: this is THE best revenge story we've seen done in comics since Garth Ennis's work on PUNISHER MAX.
There's so many interesting characters who're lurking beneath the surface of the story, and you can just tell that by the time this mini-series concludes, the roles of many characters will have changed drastically.
One part QUENTIN TARANTINO, one part THE PUNISHER, DEAD BODY ROAD lives up to the high expectations that we had for it, and we think you're going to love it.
Meet DEAD BODY ROAD & LUTHER STRODE writer JUSTIN JORDAN this Saturday at Third Eye!
This Saturday, Justin is returning to Third Eye to help us kick off the release of his brand new series, and we're totally stoked to have him here.
Make sure to bring your Strode issues in, as well as snag a copy of DEAD BODY ROAD, to get signed by the man himself between 11AM-1PM this weekend.

THE BEST BATMAN RUN IN AGES CONTINUES WITH THIS WEDNESDAY'S BATMAN #26 *ZERO YEAR* -- YOU'VE NEVER SEEN THE RIDDLER THIS VICIOUS BEFORE!
For over two years, we've raved and ranted every month about how freakin' good this title has been -- with Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo absolutely crushing it on each and every story arc, and folks: that's not changing anytime soon -- BATMAN is still the best DC Comics book on the stands.
Capullo is defining himself as THE Batman artist of this decade, and Snyder's well-crafted storytelling makes each and every issue a masterpiece.
This week's issue #26 continues the events of ZERO YEAR, as GOTHAM CITY is thrown into total chaos by the Riddler, and Batman must work alongside a young Jim Gordon to keep everything from falling too far into disarray.
ZERO YEAR has been one of the coolest of the arcs so far, with it's first chapter kicking off in issue #21, and rolling from there -- showing us a crucial look at the very first year of BATMAN working in Gotham City, as well as many of the major events that shaped the Dark Knight, it really is one of the best things to come out of DC in a long time.
Wanna get on board with the Capullo & Snyder stuff? You can either start where ZERO YEAR begins with issue #21, or you can go all the way back to the beginning (which we recommend 'cause of how awesome the whole run has been) with the BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS graphic novel, collecting issues 1-7 of the series into one volume.
From there, we can catch you up with the next two graphic novels, and then all the single issues leading up to this week's BATMAN #26.
KRAMPUS #1 -- Santa Clause's evil counter-part takes center stage in this all new IMAGE COMICS series!
Meet the Secret Society of Santa Clauses. For centuries, Father Christmas, Ded Moroz, Hoteiosho, and others have magically distributed Christmas cheer to children around the world.
But, when the source of their power is stolen, a desperate Society turns to an unusual source for help: the dreaded KRAMPUS, child-punishing demon of holiday lore.
Free of his cell for the first time in decades, will the Krampus uncover the truth behind the Santas' depowering or leave his jailers to their ultimate fate?
It's Snake Plissken by way of the Grinch as the darkly comedic adventure begins here.
Third Eye Faithful, I gotta say: this one was a real blast, and we're all for more KRAMPUS in pop culture -- so, make sure you give this one a look this Wednesday.
INHUMANITY: AWAEKNING #1 -- THE WAVE OF INHUMANITY HITS THE AVENGERS ACADEMY & JEAN GREY SCHOOLS
The kids of AVENGERS ACADEMY & Wolverine and the X-Men's JEAN GREY SCHOOL OF HIGHER LEARNING must face the onset of INHUMANITY head-on in this 2-part mini-series kicking off Wednesday, and tying into the pages of INHUMANITY.
Inhuman chrysalises have appeared across the world... some want them, some want to destroy them -- and your favorite superhuman students are caught in the crossfire!
We're loving the way that INHUMANITY is looking to shape up, and cannot wait to see how it plays out in the pages of INHUMANITY: AWAKENING this week.
MANIFEST DESTINY #2 -- THE HIT NEW IMAGE SERIES CONTINUES THIS WEDNESDAY WITH ISSUE #2! A MUST-READ!
MANIFEST DESTINY blew us away last month, and we're totally amped about the second issue dropping this week.
This alt-history take on the adventurers Lewis & Clark exploring the uncharted territories of America, and discovering monsters captivated us just as much as it did many of you -- and issue #2 looks to be even more kick-ass!
As, Lewis and Clark uncover a new breed of savage creature with the Louisiana Purchase -- and all hell breaks loose.
One part HELLBOY, one part History Channel, MANIFEST DESTINY is one of the coolest new books we've seen in a while, and we highly recommend giving it a shot.

THE NEXT INSTALLMENT IN THE SURVIVAL HORROR EPIC CROSSED ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY WITH CROSSED VOL.7 TPB
Avatar Press has done an incredible job of keeping their flagship survival horror series CROSSED as fresh and interesting today as it was when it first launched.
Never read CROSSED? It's not for the faint of heart -- this is quite possibly the most disturbing, and horrific comic on the stands today. Imagine an epidemic ala zombie plague infecting most of the planet -- but instead of the dead re-animating as brain-starved ghouls; it turns people into engines of pure evil and destruction.
The scariest part about the CROSSED? They still retain all of their natural abilities to plan, plot and coordinate strategies on how to inflict the maximum damage to everything and everyone around them.
In this week's CROSSED VOL.7, the unrelenting horror continues, as we're shown a tale of betrayal where one of the survivors betrays his own kind to live among the Crossed.
Wanna get started with CROSSED? We've got volumes 1-6 in stock now to catch you up to this week's volume 7.
JUSTICE LEAGUE #25 *FOREVER EVIL TIE-IN* -- FOREVER EVIL BRINGS IT'S DARKNESS TO NIGHTWING
The FOREVER EVIL tie-ins that've been running through JUSTICE LEAGUE, JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA & JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK have been keeping us hooked in a major way.
In this week's JUSTICE LEAGUE #25, FOREVER EVIL continues as the Crime Syndicate hunts down the few heroes left foolish enough to challenge them -- including Batman's protege, Dick Grayson.
However, Owl-Man has some very dark plans for Nightwing -- and Owl-Man's teammate, the ultra-deadly ULTRAMAN has even darker ones.
Could this be the beginning of the end of NIGHTWING?
Wanna catch up on the FOREVER EVIL tie-in stuff? We've got all the tie-ins in stock now.

And, yes, that is Kitty Pryde with the UNCANNY X-MEN!
One of the better INHUMANITY tie-ins we've seen so far, snag yourself a copy this week!
POLARITY VOLUME 1 FROM SAY ANYTHING'S MAX BEMIS ARRIVES IN GRAPHIC NOVEL THIS WEDNESDAY
SAY ANYTHING Frontman MAX BEMIS delivered one of the coolest little mini-series of 2013, and we're totally stoked to see it arriving in graphic novel this year.
A must for fans of books like STRANGE TALENT OF LUTHER STRODE, this combination of a very personal story with a completely fresh take on super powers will have you hooked right from the first page and onwards.
What if having super powers meant losing your mind? Tim Woods is a bipolar artist stuck in the world of hipsters, meaningless sex, and vain art -- better known as Brooklyn. But, after he survives a near fatal car accident, Tim discovers that his mental instability is more than just a disorder, and that his bipolar medication hasn't just been subduing his manic depression; it's been suppressing his super-powers as well.
Super awesome stuff; we highly recommend snagging a copy of POLARITY this week!
FOREVER EVIL: ARKHAM WAR #3 -- KILLER CROC VS. BANE!
Out of all the FOREVER EVIL tie-ins, ARKHAM WAR has been our biggest favorite.
Focusing on the city of Gotham under siege without a Dark Knight to protect it -- and an unlikely defender stepping up in the form of Bane, this has been one of the most intriguing of the various FOREVER EVIL tie-ins.
And, this week, as the battle for control over Gotham escalates, a new protector rises -- but before that, we get the throw down to end all throw downs: BANE VS. KILLER CROC.
Wanna jump on board? We've got issues 1 & 2 in stock now to catch you up to this week's #3.
SHERLOCK HOLMES: MORIARTY LIVES #1 BRINGS THE RESURRECTION OF HOLMES' ARCH RIVAL!
Dynamite's SHERLOCK HOLMES mini-series have all been pretty darn kick-ass, and this new one looks to be the coolest one yet.
Professor James Morairty has faced his arch rival, Sherlock holmes, above Reichenbach Falls, where they have both plummeted to their doom. Or have they?
Washed ashore in a strange town in Switzerland, Moriarty is alone, penniless, and without his network of thieves.
Will his cunning and guile be enough against a foe more ruthless than Holmes himself? It's one of the greatest villains of all time as you've never seen him before.

What's it all about? Morning Glory Academy is one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country, but something sinister and deadly lurks behind its walls.
When six gifted but troubled new students arrive -- they find themselves trapped and fighting for their lives as the secrets of the Academy reveal themselves.
Imagine the strong storytelling of Joss Whedon with the supernatural intrigue and mythology of LOCKE & KEY and that sums up this dark series very well.

SUPERMAN / WONDER WOMAN #3 -- ZOD!!!
SUPERMAN / WONDER WOMAN has been a real blast, and it's really turning out to be one of our favorites in the NEW 52. Writer CHARLES SOULE, who wowed many of you with his new series LETTER 44, is just crushing it on this book, and this week's issue #3 is no exception.

DAY MEN #2 -- THE HIT NEW BOOM! STUDIOS SERIES CONTINUES THIS WEDNESDAY
We're totally into the new BOOM! series DAY MEN, and despite a lengthy wait between issues 1 & 2 -- we're totally amped for the second issue still!
Featuring the incredible artwork of Brian Stelfreeze, DAY MEN #2 is a very fresh take on the vampire story, and we're all about it.
For thousands of years, the world has been controlled by the "50 Families" -- a secret network of vampire covens engaged in a timeless struggle for power.
But, when the sunrises, the vampires are forced to employ the services of a human who acts as their daytime fixer and proctor. Trained for centuries to be the mortal soldiers of their vampire employers, the Day Men go forth at sunrise, alone into the world, to do the bidding of their sleeping benefactors.
This week's issue #2 turns things up a notch, as a full-blown war between the Virgo and Ramses families erupts, and Day Man David Reid is left to pick up the pieces while his vampire employers sleep.
Wanna hop on board? We've got issue 1 in stock still to get you up to date with this week's #2.

Creators Fraction & Aja's previous work on the IMMORTAL IRON FIST.

After learning the legacy of the Iron Fist holds more secrets than he ever dreamed, Danny is invited to fight in a tournament against the Immortal Weapons -- other wielders of the Iron Fist's unique abilities.
And, the prize? the legacy of his father and mentor, the life of his friend --- and the future of K'un Lun.
Imagine everything that you love about good kung-fu movies, fighting games, and the current HAWKEYE series rolled into one awesome comic, and that, Third Eye Faithful, is the IMMORTAL IRON FIST.
