MARVEL NOW Wave 2: SHE-HULK #1 DEBUTS THIS WEDNESDAY -- AND IT'S INCREDIBLE!
Meet the writer CHARLES SOULE at THIRD EYE on SATURDAY 3/1/14
Man, the MARVEL NOW stuff has been really kicking butt, and the hits aren't slowing down any time soon, as another incredible new series launches this week with the brand new SHE-HULK from rising star writer CHARLES SOULE!
Charles has been wowing us with his work on series like LETTER 44, RED LANTERNS, SUPERMAN WONDER WOMAN, and SWAMP THING, so when we saw he was going to be bringing JENNIFER WALTER back into the spotlight -- we knew it was a perfect fit.
And, holy crap: Javier Pulido's artwork is so freakin' good. Pure pop art genius, if you're a fan of the artwork seen in some issues of HAWKEYE, as well as styles similar to what's been done recently with FF & DAREDEVIL, you'll love Pulido's take here on She-Hulk.
In this brand new series, Jennifer is trying to get back into the field of law, and begin a new practice.
Sure, she can knock out just about anyone in the Marvel Universe, but can she do it while juggling a full caseload?
One of the major themes explored within this story, is how does She-Hulk juggle duking it out with giant robots, and irradiated monsters while handling her day to day responsibilities?
We love the very human take Charles brings to the character, and are super excited for this one.
If you're a fan of series like HAWKEYE or YOUNG AVENGERS, you'll love the slice-of-life meets over-the-top Marvel madness of SHE-HULK!
Meet SHE-HULK Writer CHARLES SOULE on Saturday 3/1/14 and get your She-Hulk #1 signed!
We're totally pumped to be having Charles Soule as one of our guests this Spring in celebration of all the incredible work he's got coming out this year.
Make sure to snag your She-Hulk so you can bring it back and have it signed on Saturday 3/1/14!

Oni Press, publishers of HELHEIM & LETTER 44, debut another stellar indie gem with THEBUNKER #1 this Wednesday!
A must-read horror /sci-fi that conjures up memories of Stephen King's "IT"
Oni has really been impressing us recently with their creator-owned offerings like HELHEIM and LETTER 44, so when we saw that one of our favorite writers, Joshua Hale Fialkov (his horror series ECHOES is a MUST-READ!) was going to be penning a brand new ongoing series for the publisher -- we took notice.
In BUNKER, five friends go to bury a time capsule before going their separate ways, but instead they find a mysterious bunker stamped with their names and containing artifacts from a time that has yet to come.
Will their discovery save the world or doom it?
I know we're being cagey -- but, trust us: the less you know going in, the better.. it's one of those books that you want to go into totally blind, and just enjoy the surprise; 'cause dude: it's a big twist!
Don't sleep on BUNKER this week, Third Eye Faithful!

BATMAN #28 -- A SPECIAL PRELUDE TO BATMAN: ETERNAL (the major BATMAN story arc beginning later this year) in this ZERO YEAR: INTERLUDE issue
Okay, Third Eye Faithful, let me start off by stating the obvious: Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo's BATMAN is pure magic, plain and simple, and nearly every single issue has been a dynamite, knock-down, drag-out must-read book.
So, with that being said: you know the drill -- if you're still not reading BATMAN, we need to change that. Whether you're jumping on with BATMAN #21 and starting with ZERO YEAR, or catching up from the very beginning with the BATMAN: COURT OF OWLS graphic novel (Collecting 1-7), we cannot recommend this series enough.
Now, moving ahead: BATMAN #28 - HOLY CRAP. Okay, we can't say much here, because it's got some surprises, but what we will say is this: it's a special interlude that's set six months in the future of the current continuity -- and it's a very special prelude to the colossal new BATMAN: ETERNAL event that's going to begin later this year.
And...... well, we'll shut up now. :)
But, trust us: this is one of the most exciting issues of the title since BATMAN #13 started off DEATH OF THE FAMILY.
Make sure you snag your copy on release day, and read up before everyone starts buzzing about it!
IMAGE DEBUTS A BRAND NEW SERIES OF CYBERPUNK NOIR WITH THE FUSE #1 THIS WEDNESDAY!
Image continues to broaden the selection of great comics on the shelves, showing us that nearly every genre is well-represented by the publisher.
This week, the FUSE arrives from the writer of UMBRAL, and looks to be an exciting new sci-fi read that hits hard.
Working homicide 22,000 miles up on an orbiting energy platform, in a five-mile-long jury-rigged steel city stuffed with a half million people, with no help from your so-called colleagues back on Earth... well, it's more than tough: it's murder.
This brand new crime noir series brings a new spin to the genre, as murder, mayhem, and mystery all take place 22,000 miles straight up.. and it's pretty freakin' kick-ass.
Snag yourself a copy of #1 this week and give it a go!
MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #27.NOW -- A BOLD NEW ARC BEGINS NOW, AS THE FIRST OFFICIAL CHAPTER OF GOBLIN NATION ARRIVES THIS WEDNESDAY!
Been waiting to jump onto Marvel's best monthly series?
Now's your chance!
All right, Third Eye Faithful -- here comes a big one. You DO NOT want to miss out on what's going to be one of the biggest Marvel NOW story lines to kick off in 2014, and it all starts in this Wednesday's SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #27.NOW.
The swan song of this incredible title, which has quickly become the best Marvel book on the stands today, begins with GOBLIN NATION chapter 1 this week, and we cannot wait to see how it turns out.
Of course, many of you know about the eventual return of Peter -- and you know for a fact, it's all gonna start going down here!
In GOBLIN NATION, the so-called SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN has failed. Under his watch, the Green Goblin took control of New York's underworld. This is all Otto Octavius' fault.
Now, it's his responsibility to take the Goblin down -- by any means necessary.
Win or lose, this shall be Otto's greatest battle.
The end begins here, Third Eye Faithful -- it's the Superior Spider-Man versus THE GOBLIN NATION... and, nothing will be the same ever again for everyone's favorite anti-hero.
Wanna jump onto this killer series? Issue #27.NOW is a MARVEL NOW Wave 2 #1 jumping on point, which makes it a perfect place for new readers to hop aboard.
Wanna go back further? We can catch you up with either the graphic novels (1-4, which take you up to around issue #17), or we have the back issues of SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN, 1-26, in stock now, to get you current!

MARVEL NOW WAVE 2: WINTER SOLDIER BITTER MARCH #1 -- THE WINTER SOLDIER'S OWN ONGOING SERIES BEGINS NOW! WITH THIS WEEK'S BITTER MARCH #1
Written by RICK REMENDER (Black Science, Deadly Class)!
We're so pumped for the new WINTER SOLDIER series, and especially after seeing the incredible trailer for the upcoming Winter Soldier film, we're even more stoked to see more background on the character!
This series is a MARVEL NOW Wave 2 title, which means it's written in a way that you can jump on board without having read any prior Winter Soldier stuff, and not be lost.
It's the perfect place to start getting into the character, and folks, with a killer creative team like RICK REMENDER & ROLAND BOSCHI -- you can't pass this one up.
It's the year 1966, and Nick Fury is missing, and presumed dead.
The global espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D sends secret agent Ran Shen to collect two Nazi scientists with the key to defining who wins the Cold War.
But, the Americans are not the only ones who want the high value scientists.
The Soviets have opened the Red Room, releasing their most dangerous operative: the Winter Soldier, who unbeknownst to the rest of the world, is the presumed-dead partner of Captain America, Bucky Barnes.
The brainwashed soldier's mission: to acquire the scientists by any means, or to kill them should they fall into American hands.
This classic psychotronic '60s-style, high-octane, spy pulp told at the peak of the Cold War follows Ran Shen and his terrified scientists as they creep out of the shadow of East Berlin.
Intrigue, adventure, romance and murder abound with ramifications that will shatter relationships in the modern-day Marvel Universe -- including one with the Star Spangled Avenger himself!
Folks: this is a MUST-READ, and is THE place to go if you're curious about getting started with the enigmatic new character who's at the center of the upcoming Cap flick.
IMAGE COMICS & ED BRUBAKER / SEAN PHILLIPS'S FATALE CONTINUES WITH THIS WEDNESDAY'S FATALE VOL.4, TAKING THE LOVECRAFTIAN NOIR INTO THE MID-'90s SEATTLE GRUNGE SCENE!
Dig out your Mudhoney records, folks -- this one's a must!
Third Eye Faithful: if you're not reading FATALE, then we really need to sit down for a talk.. 'cause you're missing out on some of the best of the best in comics right now.
This incredible series effortlessly blends the best of crime noir with the most harrowing supernatural horror you can think of, and the end product is an incredible piece of comic book goodness.
From the minds of creators ED BRUBAKER (CRIMINAL, INCOGNITO, VELVET) and SEAN PHILLIPS (CRIMINAL, INCOGNITO), Fatale is what happens when THE EXORCIST, HP LOVECRAFT, Frank Miller's SIN CITY, and QUENTIN TARANTINO find themselves thrown into a blender together.
In this fourth volume, it's sex, drugs, rock-n-roll and ritual murder as the strangest volume of FATALE yet hits the shelves.
A strange woman with no memory stumbles into the lives of a struggling grunge band in mid-'90s Seattle.. is she their Muse?
Will she save them from "one-hit wonder" status?
Or will she be something much worse, especially since there's a psycho killer on her tail?
Collecting FATALE 15-19, this is a must-have.
Wanna start the series? We've got volumes 1-3 in stock now to get you current.
ALL NEW X-MEN #23 *TRIAL OF JEAN GREY PT 3* -- The TRIAL OF JEAN GREY continues, as the Guardians of the Galaxy and the ALL NEW X-MEN come head to head!
As part of the MARVEL NOW Wave 2 line-up, one of the biggest story arcs to kick off has definitely been the TRIAL OF JEAN GREY, featuring a crossover between two of our favorite books: ALL NEW X-MEN & GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.
See, the whole premise behind the stellar ALL NEW X-MEN title is that the X-MEN are brought back from the past.. when they're all teenagers, before they had a chance to do all the crazy stuff they did throughout the years.
And, some of that crazy stuff happened to be the Phoenix wiping out entire planets, and pissing off pretty much all alien life in the galaxy.
So, now, all these aliens that have an axe to grind have caught wind that "hey, the Phoenix isn't dead? Wait, she's alive.. and she's an X-Man again? Oh hell no."
Problem is: this Jean never did those things, but that doesn't stop these guys from wanting to put her on trial for crimes she's yet to commit.
From there, we're being taken on a crazy awesome star faring saga featuring the GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, and it's awesome all the way around.
Wanna jump on board with it? Start with ALL NEW X-MEN #22.NOW (in stock now) and GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #11.NOW, and then grab this week's #23 to be up to date.

AVATAR PRESS, publishers of CROSSED, NEONOMICON, GOD IS DEAD & more, follow up their #0 issue of GRAVEL with GRAVEL COMBAT MAGICIAN #1 this Wednesday
Last month, we told you guys all about the totally kick-ass new GRAVEL series from AVATAR PRESS, and now, we're already getting issue #1 (following up on the prologue in issue #0) and we couldn't be more stoked.
In GRAVEL COMBAT MAGICIAN #1, the next gut-wrenching chapter in the life of William Gravel, Combat Magician has begun!
Locked away in a military prison since the destruction of the Major Seven, Gravel has been content with having all of his needs met by the British Army, even though a man with his supernatural abilities could never really be contained.
Life has been good. Until today. A horrifying terrorist threat has struck the heart of Tokyo, a rogue Combat Magician, driven mad by the magic he wields, and a former trainee of Gravel.
What's GRAVEL: Picture this -- it's like JOHN CONSTANTINE with machine guns and a tactical knife.
A former SAS soldier who finds himself being schooled in the dark arts, and then using them in tactical ways -- William Gravel is the definition of awesome.
Wanna hop on? We've got the first issue, #0, in stock now to get you on board!
FANTAGRAPHICS RETURNS TO THEIR ROOTS WITH A KILLER NEW INDIE HORROR SERIES: INSECT BATH!
SNAG YOURSELF A COPY THIS WEDNESDAY!
So, folks, I grew up in the '90s, and one thing that really stood out about comics in the '90s was all the great underground / indie comix that were on the stands.
From BAGGE to TOMINE to LAPHAM to DORKIN, there was so much cool stuff being done.. and while, we love the way that there's so much cool stuff out there now in the realm of indie comics, and the lines that divided indie and mainstream have disappeared -- we do have to say: we miss some of the off-the-wall, mean as all get out, indie.
This week, FANTAGRAPHIC's new series is a weird blend of slice-of-life surrealism, and cosmic horror, featuring a TON of great modern indie dudes kicking major butt on this.
Snag yourself a copy this Wednesday and give it a shot!
INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US YEAR TWO #2 ARRIVES THIS WEEK TO CONTINUE THE HIT SERIES!
You guys know by now, we're huge fans of the INJUSTICE series, which delivers an alternate version of the DC Universe where the Joker killed Lois Lane, and Superman, in turn, killed the Joker, before seizing the world and turning it into a super-police state.
Now, lines are drawn, and it's Batman Vs. Superman, as heroes must choose sides.
With BATMAN out of action, a grieving Black Canary begins to assemble her own team to combat Superman's new world order.
And, Earth's heroes aren't the only ones concerned about the Man of Steel's rule.
Word is spreading across the galaxy.
Powerful beings are starting to turn their eyes to the planet Earth -- but their intentions? You'll find out.
Wanna hop on? We've got issue 1 in stock to catch you up, or if you wanna go back further, you can snag the first hardcover, also available now, which collects YEAR ONE.
LEGENDERRY: A STEAMPUNK ADVENTURE #2 ARRIVES THIS WEEK, FROM FABLES Writer BILL WILLINGHAM!
FABLES Writer BILL WILLINGHAM continues his new steampunk epic, as classic icons like the Green Hornet, Vampirella, and more are re-imagined in a completely new, steampunk world.
In issue #2, Magna Spadarossa gets a taste of life in the Big City, but it's not all she had hoped.
Assassins galore are after her, but why?
It's up to Vampirella, the Green Hornet, Kato, and the best Victorian futuristic technology they have to keep Magna safe -- but, will that be enough?

In issue #4, surrounded by buffalotaur, and fighting for survival, what Lewis and Clark need is a monster killer.
And, her name is Sacagawea.
Not reading this great series? We've got 1-3 in stock now -- snag all 3, and give it a shot: we promise you won't be disappointed!

Featuring the incredible art of ROCK-HE KIM, X-FORCE #1 brings a brand new take.

The U.S has the Secret Avengers. the UK has MI13.
And, mutant kind has X-FORCE.

This is so awesome, Third Eye Faithful, and just in time to coincide with the launch of Soule's new SHE-HULK too!
