In one way or another, we are asked, “Which comic books should I be reading?” or, “I’m new to comics, what’s a good place to start?”  Longtime readers and most definitely those newer to the awesome world of comics can find the Wednesday deluge of new comic books, graphic novels and collected editions overwhelming. Well, where do you begin? There answer. The options are endless, but we are here to make finding your place a less daunting and even more exciting and fun than you may have expected.

Every Wednesday, we open the shop with new issues for comic books and graphic novels. Check in with us each week to see what is new and we'll even through in our thoughts and recommendations. Because we'd like to consider ourselves more of a community than a store, we hope to hear your thoughts too.

GENERATIONS: PHOENIX #1 continues to pave the road to MARVEL: LEGACY

With MARVEL LEGACY, Marvel is taking a very similar approach to DC’s REBIRTH and we cannot wait! The mysteries of the VANISHING POINT and the absence of Marvel’s greatest heroes continues to unfold!

Third Eye Faithful, we are so pumped about MARVEL LEGACY! Following hot on the heels of DC Comics’s own very cool return to their roots, DC REBIRTH, Marvel is bringing back many of their most iconic characters and thrusting them into the spotlight, alongside the next generation of heroes they’ve built over the last decade!

A blending of the things that have made MARVEL COMICS amazing for so many years combined with the cutting edge, innovative storytelling and world building that’s made Marvel so unique since the 2000s began – Marvel LEGACY is shaping up to be quite possibly the most exciting thing that we’ve seen the publisher do. Period.

We know that you’re like us, and CANNOT wait for LEGACY to start.. well, get ready to get an early look at the overall theme and tone of LEGACY with Marvel’s upcoming GENERATIONS series – a limited 10-issue series featuring special team-up one-shot issues pairing the return of a classic Marvel icon with their modern-day next generation counter part.

What’s really interesting about Marvel GENERATIONS is that many of the characters featured… have been MIA for quite some time, whether either dead or trapped somewhere else – but: this is legit. The characters you see returning here are the real deal, and these stories do happen – and LEGACY is going to be a big part of what explains how it happens.

The fun continues this week, as the mysteries of the strange purgatory where many of Marvel’s most iconic heroes have been trapped as the prime representations of themselves, THE VANISHING POINT, is explored!

In GENERATIONS PHOENIX #1, teenage Jean Grey is willing to do whatever it takes to avoid the fate that befell her predecessor.

But when Jean is cast through time into the VANISHING POINT and comes face-to-face with the newly possessed Phoenix, will she find the key to saving herself…or learn that her fate is sealed?

What does this all mean to the cataclysmic events of GENERATIONS that are on the way? Find out in this week’s GENERATIONS PHOENIX #1!

MISTER MIRACLE #1 from superstar TOM KING (BATMAN, VISION, SHERIFF OF BABYLON) and MITCH GERADS (SHERIFF OF BABYLON) is quite simply the best darn comic you’ll read this Summer.

A true modern classic in the waiting – do NOT sleep on what is going to be one of the most exciting DC limited series of 2017. Trust us: you’ll love this book.

We’ve been so pumped for MISTER MIRACLE from TOM KING and MITCH GERADS since we first saw glimpses of it, and we gotta tell ya, Third Eye Faithful: it lives up to the hype in a BIG BIG BIG way!

In the spirit of iconic Vertigo riffs on superheroes like Grant Morrison’s ANIMAL MAN, Alan Moore’s SWAMP THING, and Tom King’s own VISION – the new MISTER MIRACLE is a dark, fascinating modern world take on the world of DC’s NEW GODS.

Scott Free is the greatest escape artist that ever lived.

So great that he escaped Granny Goodness’ gruesome orphanage and the dangers of Apokolips to travel across galaxies and set up a new life on Earth with his wife, the former female fury known as Big Barda.

Using the stage alter ego of Mister Miracle, he has made a career for himself showing off his acrobatic escape techniques.

He even caught the attention of the Justice League, which counted him among its ranks.

You might say Scott Free has everything…so why isn’t it enough?

Mister Miracle has mastered every illusion, achieved every stunt, pulled off every trick – except one.

He has never escaped death. Is it even possible? Our hero is going to have to kill himself if he wants to find out.

There are comics that practically crackle with that pure magic energy that makes for a stunning story – and the new MISTER MIRACLE is one of those books. Do NOT sleep
