Meet one of this year’s hottest new comic writers at THIRD EYE COMICS in ANNAPOLIS in MAY!
GET THE EXCLUSIVE THIRD EYE COMICS Variant of HIGHER EARTH #1!
Last year, writer SAM HUMPHRIES, took the world of comics by storm with his completely self-published and self-distributed indie gem SACRIFICE. We were pumped to offer that very limited, exclusive title to you guys then, and have been keeping an eye on Sam’s future projects ever since. Now, six months later, Sam is co-writing THE ULTIMATES with Jonathan Hickman, delivering a ground-breaking take on JOHN CARTER OF MARS, feeding Fanboys to Zombies in FANBOYS VS. ZOMBIES, and unleashing his biggest project of the summer: HIGHER EARTH.
We’re honored to say that Sam has made Third Eye Comics his official launch site for HIGHER EARTH #1, and in collabortion with him and BOOM! Studios, we’ll be flying Sam in for a special signing. We’re also going to be offering a very special THIRD EYE COMICS-exclusive variant cover of HIGHER EARTH #1 at this event, which (if judging by Sam’s past hits) is guaranteed to be one of the hottest variants of the Summer.
What’s HIGHER EARTH? When I first heard the concept of HIGHER EARTH, I knew that this was a book that was going to be big. A sci-fi fantasy epic that follows in the same vein as Brian K. Vaughan’s SAGA, delivering believable characters in an unbelievable world, HIGHER EARTH is incredible.
You know that Final Frontier we’re always seeking in most science fiction? Well, mankind found it.. and it sucks. A desolate wasteland.
So, instead of searching space, mankind sets it’s sight on exploring, and conquering new territory: alternate Earths.
Higher Earth follows the adventures of Heidi, a girl born in garbage, and Rex, a soldier gone rogue, as they look to bridge the gap between their destiny and them… but that gap consists of an empire of a hundred different Earths, across a hundred alternate timelines.
And, at the top? HIGHER EARTH. Only the most elite and powerful are allowed here.
Folks, we LOVE this one, as it has everything that makes a good down-to-Earth sci-fi story good: strong characters, good dialogue, great artwork, and big ideas. Just like FIREFLY/SERENITY, or BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, there’s a very cool relevance of HIGHER EARTH to the here and now, and that makes great sci-fi.
Welcome to the future. Space is dead. Welcome to Higher Earth.
HIGHER EARTH #1 releases in-store on Wednesday 5/9/12, and Sam Humphries (writer of SACRIFICE, ULTIMATES, OUR LOVE IS REAL) will be in-store on Saturday 5/12/12.
In collaboration with BOOM!, we’re having a special THIRD EYE COMICS variant of HIGHER EARTH put together, which will be available for sale at the Launch party event.
