Marvel NOW Wave 2: WOLVERINE #1debuts the new ongoing WOLVERINE series -- which is the BEST take on the character since OLD MAN LOGAN
From the co-creator of SUPERIOR SPIDERMAN, Ryan Stegman & DOCTOR WHO TV Writer Paul Cornell
All right, Third Eye Faithful, this is going to be a tough one to write up -- 'cause there's a BIG twist in the issue, and I really, really do not want to ruin it for you.
So, whatever is already public knowledge, we'll talk about, and then leave the surprise up to you this week. :)
As you know, Marvel is relaunching a number of their titles this year as part of the ALL NEW MARVEL NOW initiative, and one of the ones we're most excited about is the new WOLVERINE #1.
With artwork by one half of the team who made SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN the awesomeness that it is, and a stellar storyline from a man who's worked on a number of DOCTOR WHO episodes -- the new WOLVERINE may finally be the book that helps reinvent and reinvigorate the iconic character.
And, it's about time,'cause it's been a while since we've really had a kick-ass WOLVERINE story.
OK, so here's the skinny: after the events of last year's KILLABLE storyline (all back issues available and in stock now) where his healing factor was pretty much nullified, Wolverine has something to prove.
Before he can take on Sabretooth again, he has to build himself back up, get better and stronger than he's ever been... but it's not as easy as he thought, and he'll soon find himself turning to other means of revenge when the normal channels don't seem to be working fast enough.
Can Logan fight back his demons, or is this the beginning of a Wolverine who's gone to the dark side?
Without the tools that've served him well for so long -- how far will he go to be better than he was before?
Folks: just trust us -- you need this comic. It's gonna blow. your. mind.
MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: MS. MARVEL #1 -- THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT OF THE NEW MS. MARVEL ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY!
It's a big week for Marvel, with some major Marvel NOW Wave 2 books dropping, and another one we're really stoked about is the upcoming new Ms. Marvel series.
When Kamala Khan acquires incredible new abilities from the Inhuman Terrigen Mists (as seen in the pages of INHUMANITY), an extraordinary hero is born!
Featuring writing from AIR & CAIRO scribe G. WILLOW WILSON, and artwork by RUNAWAYS artist ADRIAN ALPHONA, MS. MARVEL is one of the most awesome looking new releases of the MARVEL NOW WAVE 2 line-up.
It's got a great sense of big, vibrant superhero action blended with strong characterization, and a great sense of humor.
If you dig series like HAWKEYE or YOUNG AVENGERS, we think you'll love the heck out of the new MS. MARVEL.
Snag yourself a copy this week at Third Eye & find out why this is a book not to be missed!
FOREVER EVIL #5 ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY, BRINGING US CLOSER TO THE CONCLUSION OF DC'S BIGGEST & BEST EVENT STORY SINCE "BLACKEST NIGHT!"
We've been loving the heck out of the direction DC's been heading with FOREVER EVIL, and cannot wait to see what goes down in this week's issue #5.
I mean, first off, let's just state the obvious: it's an entire mini-series starring some of the coolest super villains in the DC line-up, how can we not love it?
But, seriously, GEOFF JOHNS (AQUAMAN, BLACKEST NIGHT, etc) and DAVID FINCH (BATMAN THE DARK KNIGHT, ULTIMATUM) are delivering one hell of an incredible story here, and if you've been thinking about jumping into the DCU, then this is the perfect place to start.
In issue #5, with everything to lose, Lex Luthor and his Injustice League raid the stronghold of the Crime Syndicate with consequences so devastating, the DC Universe will never be the same.
What's the FOREVER EVIL arc all about? As the first line-wide crossover since the NEW 52 began, FOREVER EVIL shows us a world where the three main JUSTICE LEAGUE teams (JL, JL Dark, and JLA) are thought dead, and the Crime Syndicate (an evil version of the Justice League from Earth-3) have come to the DCU to take over the world, and recruit many 2nd and 3rd tier villains into their cause.
However, not everyone goes along -- and several major villains resist the Crime Syndicate and join Lex Luthor to form an INJUSTICE LEAGUE to take down the Crime Syndicate.
We're loving the series so far, and with only 3 more issues to go -- we cannot wait to see how it wraps up.
Want to catch up? We've got issues 1-4 in stock now to get you up to this week's #5. We also have all the FOREVER EVIL tie-ins available too!
APOCALYPSE AL #1 arrives this Wednesday from IMAGE COMICS & TEN GRAND Writer J. Michael Straczynski
We've loved JMS's work on series like TEN GRAND, THE SIDEKICK, and past hits like SUPERMAN EARTH ONE, SUPREME POWER, and RISING STARS.
So, we're pretty amped for his latest project, which puts an almost comical spin on the post-apocalypse.
Alison Carter is a private detective. Her beat: the end of the world, or more accurately, preventing same.
With an attitude of "shoot first and to hell with the questions," she leads a life that would drive other investigators mad, filled with monsters, demons, trolls, mad prophets, zombie detectives, techno-wizards, machine gun toting imps, and dead boyfriends.
In the first arc here, Al is given her biggest assignment ever: one that will take her into the heart of Ultimate Darkness itself.
The first of a four part mini-series, APOCALYPSE AL is looking to be a blast!
AVATAR: THE LAST AIRBENDER THE SEARCH ARRIVES IN A GORGEOUS OVERSIZED HARDCOVER WITH THE "AVATAR: THE SEARCH LIBRARY EDITION"

The second hardcover LIBRARY edition of AVATAR drops this week, collecting volumes 1-3 of THE SEARCH (which follows up on last year's THE PROMISE) into one big, beautiful book.
The biggest mystery of Avatar -- the fate of Fire Lord Zuko's mother -- is revealed in this remarkable oversized hardcover collecting 1-3 of THE SEARCH, from AIRBENDER creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko.

BATMAN: THE JOKER'S DAUGHTER #1 FINALLY REVEALS THE STORY & FUTURE MOTIVATIONS OF THE ENIGMATIC NEW CHARACTER
Last September, DC introduced an enigmatic new character that tons of you guys went nuts over: The Joker's Daughter.
Now, after her short-lived introduction, DC is finally expanding on who she is, and what her motivations may be.
In Joker's Daughter #1 one-shot, we're going to learn what horrors lurk in the mind of this deranged lunatic, and why there's more to her than meets the eye.
More than just a crazy person who stumbled upon the Joker's face, more than just a woman with a mission, the Joker's Daughter sees herself as a woman on the path of greed, dominance and lordship over the Gotham Underground.
This special one-shot tells a sordid tale in the life of one of the DCU's most exciting new super-villains.
Did you miss out on the Joker's Daughter initially? We've still got her first appearance in CATWOMAN #23, as well as the BATMAN: DARK KNIGHT #23.4 one-shot that features her Villains Month story.
MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: CAPTAIN AMERICA #16.NOW -- A BOLD NEW JUMPING ON POINT FOR ONE OF THE BEST CAP RUNS WE'VE READ IN AGES ARRIVES THIS WEEK!
Written by BLACK SCIENCE & DEADLY CLASS creator RICK REMENDER
Another killer MARVEL NOW title dropping this week is the new jumping on point for the already amazing CAPTAIN AMERICA series by BLACK SCIENCE & DEADLY CLASS writer RICK REMENDER.

As beautiful as she is powerful, Jet Black must learn the laws of mortal men in NYC.
But, when a group of Nazi soldiers known as "The S Men", lure Black into evil -- will she follow in the footsteps of her nefarious father?
Remender's run on CAP has rocked since issue #1, bringing a very psychotronic almost B-Movie meets blockbuster Marvel U kind of awesomeness to the book.
Imagine the best of Kirby's CAP stuff fused with a modern day talent like Remender, and that sums up how we feel about the current run.

MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: ALL NEW INVADERS #2 -- JAMES ROBINSON (STARMAN, EARTH 2) HITS A HOMERUN WITH THIS KILLER NEW SERIES!
Folks, admittedly, we're not normally major fans of THE INVADERS -- nothing against the team, we just don't usually go for the Golden Age-style stuff, ya know?
But, when it's THE GOLDEN AGE writer himself, JAMES ROBINSON, handling Marvel's premiere golden age super-team reunited in the modern day?
Well, we've made an exception. :)
As the original Human Torch decides to rejoin the human race, he and his fellow INVADERS face the savage fury of Kree's ultimate hunter, Tanalth the Pursuer!
How can they beat a threat that seems unbeatable?
And, the secret of the long-forgotten INVADERS original mission is revealed -- dead heroes, Nazis and Norse Gods are just a few of the things uncovered here.
And, then finally, what is the desperate measure the Invaders decide to save their teammate Namor from the clutches of the Supreme Intelligence?

LOCKE & KEY VOL.6 -- ONE OF OUR FAVORITE SERIES OF THE LAST DECADE CONCLUDES WITH IT'S SIXTH VOLUME!
JOE HILL'S MASTERPIECE IS A MUST-READ!
Both the Regular Edition & the special Slipcase Edition (to house all your other Locke & Key novels) will be available!
One of our all-time favorites, LOCKE & KEY is one of those rare series cut from the same cloth as classics like SANDMAN, PREACHER, Y: THE LAST MAN, and many others, that just grab a hold of you, and pull you into it's world... and doesn't let go until the story is over.
Now, the final volume of LOCKE & KEY arrives, from author JOE HILL, and we are stoked to see how you guys like the ending here.
In ALPHA & OMEGA, the shadows have never been darker and the end has never been closer.
Turn the key and open the last door; it's time to say goodbye.
Omega and Alpha, the final two story lines of Locke & Key, are collected together here to offer a thunderous and compelling conclusion to LOCKE & KEY.
What's LOCKE & KEY all about? Well, much like SANDMAN, it's hard to give you a good description in just a few sentences.
Here's the basics: in the very first book, WELCOME TO LOVECRAFT, we meet a family who's father has always told them: if anything ever happens to me, move the family to Keyhouse.
Well, when two of the kids he counsels murder him, but are fended off by the rest of the family -- that's exactly what happens. They relocate to Keyhouse, an ancient estate that's been in the family for years, and years.
From there, we learn fast that there's keys and doors, and each key does something different depending on the door.
And, in the well of Keyhouse is a malevolent spirit -- who's history will shock you.
OK, I've said too much! Seriously: read this book, folks. It's an incredible storyline that starts out as a straight-forward horror / ghost story, and becomes something so much more.
Also -- for those of you who've already followed the series, you can purchase the regular edition, or for a few bucks extra, you can get the volume 6 that comes with the slipcase to house all 6 volumes of LOCKE & KEY.
MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD #1 DEBUTS THIS WEDNESDAY BRINGING A WHOLE NEW DYNAMIC TO THE CHARACTER
There's no denying that LOKI is an awesome character, and one of our big favorites here at Third Eye.
So, we're pretty darn pumped to see him getting his own ongoing series, which in a weird way, reminds us a lot of the late, great LUCIFER series by Mike Carey (yup, the SANDMAN spin-off).. and, this, this is a very good thing. :)
Old God -- New Trickster! Loki returns after the events of YOUNG AVENGERS, and he's craftier than ever as the All-Mother's secret weapon against Asgardia's strangest threats.
With his serpent's tongue, debonair charm, and taste for the uncanny, there's no assignment Loki won't take -- including the untimely stabbing of THOR!
The surprises only start here for the Prince of Lies, as the most conniving corners of the Marvel Universe are blown open in LOKI: AGENT OF ASGARD.
Incredible writing, fantastic artwork -- folks: this is exactly how you wanted a Loki series to read.
MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: THE PUNISHER #1 -- THE NEW PUNISHER SERIES DELIVERS ONE OF THE MOST KICK-ASS, GRITTY TAKES ON CASTLE WE'VE SEEN SINCE PUNISHER MAX!
OK, folks: here it is -- the Punisher comic you've been waiting for. Seriously: this first issue freakin' RULED!
Loved Punisher MAX? Been yearning for a return to the grittier, more street level take on Frank Castle?
This is the book to read.
For years, the Punisher has waged a war on crime in NYC with an array of very large guns, but a lead on a major source of drugs, weapons, and more has set his many sights due west.
Now, Frank Castle's in the City of Angels, looking to give the devil his due.
Things aren't all they appear, though, with a highly trained military hit squad hot on Frank's tail!
Caught between a posse of Punisher predators and targets of his own one-man-war, Frank's manifest destiny may be a shallow grave!
The storytelling on this one is top notch, and the art is so darn gritty, and so awesome -- we're loving it.

TUROK RETURNS IN THE ALL NEW TUROK: THE DINOSAUR HUNTER #1 THIS WEDNESDAY FROM "PLANET HULK" scribe GREG PAK
Dynamite has done something pretty freakin' rad -- they've acquired the classic GOLD KEY characters, like MAGNUS the ROBOT FIGHTER, SOLAR THE MAN OF THE ATOM, and more, and are going to be bringing all new, fresh and exciting takes to these iconic comics of yesteryear.
In TUROK THE DINOSAUR HUNTER, shunned from his tribe, a young Native American named Turok fights to survive, making a lonely life for himself in the unforgiving forest.

Why are dinosaurs here? How have they survived? And, will Turok use his abilities to save society that's taken everything away from him?
