This Week's Highlights at Third Eye Comics for Wednesday 1/7/15

Marvel's ANT-MAN debuts in his new ongoing series with ANT-MAN #1 from BEDLAM & MORNING GLORIES scribe NICK SPENCER!

With the ANT-MAN film on the way, you're not gonna wanna miss this incredible new series featuring Marvel's most underrated hero!
We are so amped about all the upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 3 stuff, and I gotta tell you: just like no one believed that they could make the Guardians of the Galaxy cool many moons ago -- you're probably thinking the same thing about ANT-MAN right now, aren't you? It's OK, we won't judge. You can tell us.
Seriously though, ANT-MAN is by far one of the most complex, and multifaceted characters in the Marvel Universe, and with the new ANT-MAN film on the way, along with some serious screen-time in AGE OF ULTRON, you're going to want to know everything you can about the saga of Hank Pym and Scott Lang.
In this killer new series by MORNING GLORIES and BEDLAM writer NICK SPENCER, Scott Lang shows that he's never exactly been the world's best super hero. Heck, most people don't even think he's been the best ANT-MAN -- and the last guy invented Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that's saying something!
But, when the Superior Iron Man calls with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Scott's going to get a chance to turn it all around and be the hero he's always dreamed of ebing!
Sure, he's been to prison! Sure, he's been through a messy divorce! Sure, he's been um... dead? But, this time is different -- this time, nothing will stop the astonishing ANT-MAN!
This was a super-fun read, Third Eye Faithful, and it reminded us a lot in tone and style of Marvel's stellar HAWKEYE series. Give it a shot this week, and find out why we're all about ANT-MAN.

This modern day sci-fi reinventing of the Odyssey is amazing!
We loved the debut of ODY-C last month from Matt Fraction & Christian Ward, and we cannot wait to get our hands on ODY-C #2 this week at Third Eye!
In issue #2, Odyssia and her crew are tempted by the deadly and dangerous Lotus Eaters, living sources of the most powerful narcotic in the galaxy.
What's ODY-C about? 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 strangest, longest trip yet: the one home.
This gender-bent, eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey re-imagines the classic ODYSSEY story in a way we've never seen before! A must-read!

Everybody loves SQUIRREL GIRL! Check out THE UNBEATABLE SQUIRREL GIRL #1 this Wednesday!

The cult of Squirrel Girl has been growing for quite some time, and after some totally awesome appearances in DEADPOOL and AVENGERS, we knew it was only a matter of time until this cult favorite Marvel character got her own series to show off just how awesome she is!
Ryan North (ADVENTURE TIME, MIDAS FLESH) teams up with the very talented Erica Henderson to bring the world of Squirrel Girl to life!
What do Dr. Doom, Deadpool and Thanos have in common? Uhm, SQUIRREL GIRL HAS BEEN THEM ALL! TRUE STORY!
She may not be the world's most popular super hero. Heck, most people don't even know she exists. But, she loves being Squirrel Girl, helping folks, and saving the world (Even though most people don't know it!).
However, now, she faces an enemy more terrifying than anything she's ever faced before: COLLEGE!
Prepare for misadventures in higher education as Squirrel Girl and her best friend / sidekick Tippy-Toe venture across the Marvel Universe for brand new adventures that will see these two square off against some of the baddest baddies around!
Imagine the irreverent humor of BEE AND PUPPYCAT mixed with the MARVEL UNIVERSE, and that sums up SQUIRREL GIRL perfectly!

SPIDER-VERSE continues with Chapter 4 in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #12 this Wednesday! 

Oh man, holy crap, how freakin' great is SPIDER-VERSE these days? We are absolutely and positively hooked on this incredible SPIDER-MAN arc which may be the coolest thing we've seen done with the Wallcrawler since SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN!
In this week's issue #12, the first huge battle goes down, and folks, if those first few fights were just skirmishes, then that can't mean anything good for the Spiders.
Miles Morales shows what he can do; Silk finds something valuable on her run; and, we meet the most surprising Spider-Character yet!
Wanna get caught up on SPIDER-VERSE? We've got chapters 1-3 in stock now (AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 9,10,11) as well as all the tie-ins to get you up to date! Want to learn more about SPIDER-VERSE? Click here for our Third Eye Guide to SPIDER-VERSE.

Marvel's incredible new ANGELA series continues with ANGELA ASGARD'S ASSASSIN #2!

We're totally loving the direction that WICKED + DIVINE writer KIERON GILLEN and co-writer MARGUERITTE BENNET are taking with their stellar new ANGELA series, and we cannot wait to read more!
In issue #2, we're going to find out just what made runaway Angela return to grimy old Earth?
Hint: it probably involves fighting. She likes to fight.
Seriously though: another great issue, featuring gorgeous artwork courtesy of Stephanie Hans, ANGELA: ASGARD'S ASSASSIN is definitely recapturing the same kind of magic that Gillen first brought to Asgard with his Kid Loki-centric JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY run!

The Avengers take on Bullying in the AVENGERS: NO MORE BULLYING #1 One-Shot!

This past Fall, we know a ton of you folks loved the awesome NO MORE BULLYING variants Marvel did, which brought awareness to fighting bullying in schools nationwide.
This week, Marvel is doing something really cool with their new AVENGERS: NO MORE BULLYING one-shot.
In AVENGERS: NO MORE BULLYING, the Avengers have always stood up for those who cannot stand up for themselves, but this time they're in for a bombastic adventure of the highest order!
Featuring surprise guest stars from across the Marvel Universe, including Spider-Man and the Guardians of the Galaxy, this is a great comic to pass off to a young fan in your life who may be dealing with some jerk-faces at school!

Image hit series BIRTHRIGHT continues with this Wednesday's BIRTHRIGHT #4!

Catch up on this incredible new series from NAILBITER writer JOSHUA WILLIAMSON!
We're loving the new IMAGE series BIRTHRIGHT, which continues the tradition that books like FABLES began, of great modern day fantasy stories blending with real world drama.
In issue #4, the question is asked: how do you adjust to the real world after living in a war zone for half your life?
Mikey Rhodes and his family will find out firsthand, as danger from Terrenos presents itself on Earth in a major way!
What's BIRTHRIGHT all about? For the Rhodes family, losing their son was the most devastating thing that could have occurred, but it couldn't prepare them for what happened when he returned!

The entire DEATH OF WOLVERINE saga arrives in hardcover this Wednesday featuring CHARLES SOULE & OLD MAN LOGAN artist STEVE MCNIVEN!

Folks: the hype was big on this one, but the story that came from it, was even bigger, and not only did it deliver -- but it exceeded expectations!
In DEATH OF WOLVERINE, all roads must end somewhere, and every hero's story eventually comes to a close.
For Logan, the century-old mutant known as Wolverine, taht time is now. The loss of his healing factor and the traumatic events of THREE MONTHS TO DIE (in stock now in graphic novel and single issue!), have all led to this: the single most important X-Men event of the decade!
Through the years, LOGAN has been a warrior, a hero, a renegade, ad savage, a samurai, a teacher -- and so much more.
Logan has spent decades being the best there is at what he does, but even the best fade away eventually!
And, now, the X-Men's greatest hero will play a role he's never played before in this solemn special event by superstars CHARLES SOULE and STEVE MCNIVEN!
A must-read, Third Eye Faithful, make sure you snag your copy this week at Third Eye!

The new ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK comic continues with ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK #2!

BOOM Studios first blew us away with their stellar BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA ongoing series, and now, they're doing it all over again with the totally killer ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK comics!
In ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK #2, between the escalation of World War III and being Number One on America's Most Wanted List, Snake Plisken jumps borders and finds himself in the seceded nation of Florida!
While he may have escaped the USPF, Snake finds himself in the middle of a whole new level of political corruption.
We're loving this exploration of the world of ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, and the guys at Boom are doing such a great job, you can almost hear John Carpenter's trademark synth-heavy soundtracks underneath the story!
Wanna hop on board? We've got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up!


This one caught our eye, and we're super glad it did -- because issue #1 was amazing!
A must-read for fans of things like AVATAR THE LAST AIRBENDER, THE AMULET, and the aesthetic of Mike Mignola's HELLBOY and BPRD, Feathers is a fantastic new series that will appeal to fans of all ages.
In FEATHERS, a recluse boy named Poe, covered in feathers, must help his first ever friend, a young girl named Bianca, as she tries to return to her home beyond the slums of the Maze.
They must dodge street gangs and childsnatchers along the way, and perhaps together, they'll learn the secrets to Poe's mysterious past.
A great blend of urban fantasy, and occult adventure, FEATHERS is a must-read, and we cannot recommend it highly enough!

Dark Horse's LADY KILLER #1 debuts this Wednesday featuring art by Helheim's JOELLE JONES!! 

We were huge fans of Joelle Jones's incredible artwork on the Oni Press series HELHEIM, so when we saw she had something new on the way with LADY KILLER, we knew we had to check it out!
In LADY KILLER, Josie Schuller is a picture-perfect homemaker, wife, and mother -- but, she's also a ruthless, efficient killer for hire!
This brand new original comedy series combines the wholesome imagery of early 1960s domestic bliss with a tightening web of murder, paranoia, and cold-blooded murder!
A fantastic dark comedy dripping in blood, and style, LADY KILLER was awesome! Snag a copy this week and try it out!
