EAST OF WEST writer JONATHAN HICKMAN debuts an incredible new ongoing IMAGE series with THE DYING & THE DEAD #1 this Wednesday!

The writer behind hits like EAST OF WEST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, and more unveils his next major series!
We're so stoked for this incredible new IMAGE series, it's not even funny! Writer JONATHAN HICKMAN, who has consistently impressed us on everything from EAST OF WEST to MANHATTAN PROJECTS to Marvel favorites like AVENGERS, brings us into a surreal new world with THE DYING AND THE DEAD, and we're loving everything about it!

All seemingly disparate events which force relics from the Greatest Generation to come together for one last mission.

BATMAN #38 *Endgame Chapter 4* - The next huge chapter in the Joker's sinister return arrives from WYTCHES writer SCOTT SNYDER!

The most iconic BATMAN run in modern history continues to impress this week!
We're so digging everything and anything that has to do with Scott Snyder & Greg Capullo's incredible BATMAN run, and this week's issue #38 delivers another stunning installment in their epic Joker story to end all Joker stories: ENDGAME.
The Joker has made his sinister return, and this time, the jokes are over. He's wreaking havoc on the entirety of Gotham City, and his masterplan has come to full fruition.
And, five Arkham Asylum escapees share their own chilling encounters with the Clown Prince of Crime along the way.
Want to get on board with ENDGAME? We've got issues 35,36, and 37 to get you caught up to this week's 38, and it's a perfect spot to jump on board Snyder's incredible BATMAN run.
1smallbatmancourtowlstp1Wanna go back further? We'd recommend snagging the first Batman graphic novel, BATMAN VOL.1 COURT OF OWLS, and hopping on board from there to catch up. This has got to be one of the BEST Batman runs in modern history, and if you're not reading it yet -- you need to start! We've got all the BATMAN graphic novels beginning with COURT OF OWLS, and continuing into CITY OF OWLS and DEATH OF THE FAMILY in stock now.

We are so in love with Matt Fraction's work, ranging from his incredible Image series like ODY-C and SEX CRIMINALS to his Marvel work on HAWKEYE, the man knows how to write a darn good comic book.
Now, pairing up with the incredibly talented art team of Fabio Moon and Gabriel Ba (DAYTRIPPER, UMBRELLA ACADEMY), Fraction and crew are going to deliver pure awesomeness in the form of their series CASANOVA.
Marooned in LOS ANGELES, with no memory of his past, Casanova Quinn takes on the mystery of his criminal benefactor's tangled and bloody history -- as strange occult forces from the future conspire to.. do stuff? To him? To Los Angeles? To you? Yes!
Pure pulp mayhem ran through a post-modern lens, CASANOVA reads like James Bond sipping Ayahuasca tea, and we're loving every second of it.
Hop on board with issue #1 this week at Third Eye!

Rick Remender & Matteo Scalera's incredible ongoing IMAGE series BLACK SCIENCE delivers it's second graphic novel with this week's BLACK SCIENCE VOL.2 WELCOME, NOWHERE!! 

One of our favorite IMAGE series to launch last year was the incredible horror / sci-fi adventure series BLACK SCIENCE by writer RICK REMENDER (DEADLY CLASS, UNCANNY X-FORCE THE DARK ANGEL SAGA, LOW), and we know there's a ton of you folks who're totally on the edge of your seats waiting for the next BLACK SCIENCE graphic novel.
Well, wait no longer -- it's here! In this week's BLACK SCIENCE VOL.2 WELCOME, NOWHERE! the Anarchist League of Scientists has lost their leader, the most recent victim of the Pillar's violently random jumps through the Eververse.. but, are they really random?
As the survivors fight their way through a world where magic and science are one and the same, the secrets of their predicament slowly come to light.. and illuminate a terrible truth.
Collecting BLACK SCIENCE 7-11, you gotta snag this if you're already hooked!

Haven't began reading this amazing series yet? OK, we need to help you get started, 'cause it's definitely one of the best things going right now.

In the aftermath of AXIS, an all-new, all-different AVENGERS assemble!
We loved what Marvel did with their epic AXIS event, and are totally amped to see where things head next in it's wake -- and that's where UNCANNY AVENGERS comes in!
The tragedy at the end of AXIS has left the UNCANNY AVENGERS vulnerable, and someone is taking advantage of it.
One of the Avengers oldest foes returns with a terrible secret that will, all hype aside, shatter the lives of two members of the squad.
And, what is Counter-Earth? What terrible secret does it house?
This is gonna be awesome!

Kelly Sue DeConnick's (CAPTAIN MARVEL, PRETTY DEADLY) BITCH PLANET hits issue #2 this Wednesday!

Another incredible new IMAGE series that's gotten us hooked in a big way is Kelly Sue DeConnick and Valentine De Landro's BITCH PLANET!
If Bikini Kill was a comic, and not a band, it'd be BITCH PLANET, and we're loving every second of this incredible new IMAGE ongoing series.
In issue #2, now framed for murder INSIDE the prison, Kam is offered leniency if she'll train her crew for a death sport out against a visiting team of male prisoners.
What's BITCH PLANET all about? Picture a 1970s women-in-prison flick meets Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds, with a little bit of science fiction thrown in. Incredible stuff, we've got issue 1 in stock now to get you caught up to this week's issue #2.

REVIVAL writer TIM SEELEY debuts new series with incredible artist MARLEY ZARCONE in EFFIGY #1 this Wednesday!!

We saw some previews of this incredible new VERTIGO series a couple of months back, and thought holy crap: this looks super rad!
In EFFIGY, after a sex tape scandal, former Hollywood child star turned Z-lister Chondra Jackson returns to her hometown of Effigy Mound, IL, to find a seemingly impossible crime -- a fresh corpse in an ancient Indian burial site.
Even weirder, the murder resembles a scene from an episode of her old TV show, STAR COP, a live-action children's show about a kid detective.
As Chondra starts to investigate, she stumbles upon a bizarre cult that worships celebrities as eternal effigies. And these cult members aren't just worshipping -- they're also ritually sacrificing anyone who defies their veneration of the beautiful and famous!
Chondra's probe takes her on a terrifying tour of burial mounds across the world, from Stonehenge to the Nazca Lines of Peru.
But, what is the link between the cult, Chondra's hometown, and her own bloodline? Will Chondra become the hero detective she played as a child -- or is she in fact the cult's unwitting messiah?
Effigy is a twisted murder mystery and conspiracy tale that examines celebrity, godhood, and the price of fame in a big way!

CRIMINAL VOL.1 Coward arrives courtesy of FADE OUT and FATALE creators ED BRUBAKER & SEAN PHILLIPS!

The best modern crime noir you could ask for -- incredible stuff!
We're so pumped to see CRIMINAL returning to print with the fine folks at IMAGE COMICS, and folks, if you've never read it before -- now is your chance! This is especially a must-have for fans of comics like THE FADE OUT and FATALE, as it's the same writer / artist team, delivering that incredible noir-steeped modern crime drama storytelling we all know and love.
In CRIMINAL VOL.1 COWARD, we're shown a whole new take on the crime genre and the heist story itself, as Brubaker and Phillips weave a complex and interesting tale about a thief who detests the use of guns -- until he finds them as his only option.
The beauty of CRIMINAL is the shared universe feel of it -- you can read one graphic novel, and jump to another, and while the two stories are completely separate, you may see a prominent character from the first mentioned or as a background character in the next.
Incredible storytelling, incredible artwork, snag the first graphic novel this week and find out why it's one of our biggest favorites!

HARLEY QUINN collides with Slade Wilson in DEATHSTROKE #4 this Wednesday

So, we love DEATHSTROKE, and we love HARLEY QUINN, so put the two together -- and you know it's gonna be a great issue.
Seriously though, DC's new DEATHSTROKE ongoing series has been delivering everything and anything you could ask for out of an ongoing series starring their most notorious mercenary, and we cannot get enough.
Love DEATHSTROKE? Been waiting for the perfect series to get all the DEATHSTROKE you can handle? We've got issues 1-3 in stock now to get you on board with this week's issue #4.

Robert Kirkman, creator of WALKING DEAD, debuts his new ongoing series in GRAPHIC NOVEL with OUTCAST VOL.1, collecting 1-6 for only $9.99!

A must-read new horror series from the man who brought you WALKING DEAD!
It's safe to say that ROBERT KIRKMAN needs no introduction -- I mean, this is the man who brought us WALKING DEAD, along with other hits like INVINCIBLE, so we'll just cut to the chase: OUTCAST. It's amazing, and you need to read it.
This new ongoing horror series from IMAGE COMICS stars Kyle Barnes, a man who has been plagued by demonic possession all his life, and now he needs answers.
Unfortunately, what he uncovers along the way could bring about the end of life on Earth as we know it.
An incredible new series that re-imagines the supernatural in a modern and compelling way, OUTCAST does for films like THE EXORCIST what WALKING DEAD did for NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
Wanna get into it? This first graphic novel collects 1-6 for only $10 -- you can't beat that!

Fan-favorite Steve Jackson Games tabletop game MUNCHKIN comes to the world of comics with the new MUNCHKIN #1 this Wednesday!

WAYWARD & SKULLKICKERS writer JIM ZUB brings the world of MUNCHKIN to life!
We've been long-time fans of the incredible MUNCHKIN series of games, and when we saw that one of our favorite comic writers, JIM ZUB, was going to be doing a totally killer MUNCHKIN comic -- we knew we had to shout it out!
Kick open the door. Kill the monster. Steal the treasure. Screw over everybody you come in contact with. Welcome to the world of Munchkin.
It's hilarious, awesome, and heck, every issue will ship with an exclusive MUNCHKIN card for the game!
Based on the immensely popular card game, MUNCHKIN takes place in a very flexible mash-up of genres. Originally a satire of fantasy roleplaying, it has since then taken on non-fantasy and non-gaming elements.
Characters in MUNCHKIN change constantly but never permanently. What do Munchkins do? They play for the win! They are rules lawyers. They backstab. They gloat. They whine when someone else backstabs or gloats. Munchkins are emotional. Munchkins may be clever, but they are never wise. Munchkins have short attention spans. Munchkins may be brave in the face of awful odds, but they are even braver when beating up baby goblins for their lunch money.
If a Munchkin seems to show mercy, it's because he was bored or distracted.
A true blast, this one is a must-read for fans of SKULLKICKERS, RAT QUEENS, and of course, players of MUNCHKIN!

It's THOR VS. THOR as the Odinson returns in THOR #4 this week at Third Eye!

We can't tell ya enough, folks, how much we've been loving the new THOR that Jason Aaron and Russel Dauterman have been totally kicking butt on since it's debut!
The new Thor has us hooked, and she's totally compelling as the current wielder of Mjolnir, so we're pumped to see where this story heads next as the Odinson himself returns -- and not too happy to find someone else wielding his hammer.
It's THOR VS. THOR in this stellar fourth issue of what may be the best THOR run we've read in ages! Great storytelling, great artwork, this is one of the best Marvel books going!
Wanna get caught up? We've got THOR 1-3 in stock now to catch you up to this week's issue 4!

Image publisher, ERIC STEPHENSON, continues his incredible new ongoing Image series THEY'RE NOT LIKE US with this week's THEY'RE NOT LIKE US #2

So, when the man responsible for giving the green light to many, many incredible comics, ranging from Saga to East of West and beyond, takes a crack at writing comics -- you know it's gonna be good, and folks, Eric Stephenson's new series, THEY'RE NOT LIKE US, is definitely good. It's great.
What's it all about? In THEY'RE NOT LIKE US, we're shown how while mankind all has advantages over one another, what if certain individuals were capable of things most of us can only imagine?
What would you do -- and who would you be? A doctor? An athlete? A soldier? A hero? Everyone has to make a choice about how to use the abilities they're born with -- but, what about when they're not like us?
Incredible stuff -- imagine a real world look at the X-Men, and that sums it up well. We've got issue 1 in stock now to catch you up to this week's issue 2.

Matt Fraction & Chip Zdarsky's SEX CRIMINALS continues to impress with SEX CRIMINALS #10

There's so much great stuff coming out of IMAGE COMICS these days, but one of our biggest consistent favorites has got to be the sci-fi drama / comedy SEX CRIMINALS from MATT FRACTION & CHIP ZDARSKY.
This book is a true treat, Third Eye Faithful, as it uses clever wit, compelling characterization, and often a stunning plot to deliver one of the most unique and interesting comics on the stands today.
In SEX CRIMINALS #10, Jon and Suzie learn just how alone together we all are, and the stakes get raised crazy high in the finale to the second story arc!
