This Week's Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 11/26/14

Sex Criminals & Hawkeye Writer MATT FRACTION debuts ODYC #1 this Wednesday from Image Comics!

An exciting new series from one of comics hottest writers!Third Eye Faithful, you guys know us: we're huge fans of writer Matt Fraction and his work on series like SEX CRIMINALS, CASANOVA, and of course, HAWKEYE!
So, when we saw that the Fractionater had a new series hitting shelves this week at Third Eye, we just knew we had to jump on that, and holy crap: it's by far our top pick this week!

An epic 26 centuries in the making: in the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, Odyssia the Clever Champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home!
This gender-bent eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey begins NOW, and we are totally stoked for it.
This is a very cool take on the Greek epic, the Odyssey,  and the artwork by Christian Ward is simply breath-taking. We cannot stress enough how pumped we are for ODYC, and highly recommend you snag yourself a copy of issue #1 on this new ongoing series this week at Third Eye!

Third Eye Faithful, if you keep up with the Marvel movies, then you know that Marvel Studios has MAJOR plans for the Inhumans in the Marvel Universe and their upcoming films.
Why? 'Cause they can't get their hands on the X-Men from Fox, and well, also because the Inhumans are bad-ass.
Now, amidst all that movie hijinx, comes a really bright shining star: the series INHUMAN.
The incredibly talented CHARLES SOULE (DEATH OF WOLVERINE, SUPERMAN WONDER WOMAN) is creating Marvel characters from scratch here, and changing the landscape in a big way.

Warren Ellis's incredible IMAGE series TREES continues this week with TREES #7!

Folks, if you're not reading TREES, then you have GOT TO CHANGE THAT. This series is so freakin' good, as it delivers a fantastic hybrid of horror and science fiction that grabs a hold of you and does not let go.
In TREES #7, Chenglei's life is changing so quickly, under the shadow of the tree over Shu, that he doesn't know if he can keep up with it.
He's worried that he's running headlong into something awful. He has no idea what's really waiting for him in the dark at the end of the line.
What's TREES all about? Writer WARREN ELLIS (Moon Knight, Transmetropolitan) and artist Jason Howard deliver an incredible science fiction epic with a distinctly Ballardian tone in this incredible ongoing series.
TREES is set in an uncertain future, ten years after THEY landed. All over the world. Standing on the surface of the Earth like trees, exerting their silent pressure on the world, as if the planet was uninhabited and nothing was under foot.
Ten years since we learned that there is intelligent life in the universe, but that they did not recognize us as intelligent or alive.
Jason Howard's artwork on this is downright breath-taking, and the storytelling by Ellis is unlike anything else out there right now.
Folks, if you're not reading this cult hit yet -- you need to be. We've got issues 1-6 in stock now to catch you up to this week's issue 7.
