FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED TO THIS EVENT!
One of the most exciting new creator-owned books coming out this Summer is the Dark Horse original series, DREAM THIEF, which looks like it’s going to come out of nowhere, and turn a TON of heads.
This incredible blend of supernatural horror, and modern-day crime drama (ala THE WIRE, RESERVOIR DOGS, THE DEPARTED, etc.) grabbed a hold of us when we read it, and completely blew us away.
Right then and there, we told creators Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood: you’re coming to Third Eye to launch this gem proper.
What’s it about? After stealing an Aborginal mask from a museum, John Lincoln realizes that the spirits of the vengeful dead are possessing his body and mind while he sleeps! His old problems have been replaced by bloody hands and a trail of dead bodies — and now, remembering where he slept the night before is more important than ever.
This gritty, fast-paced drama is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we’d love to have you join us on Saturday May 18th when we have Jai and Greg to the shop to launch the book!

Caleb Goellner and Ryan Hill sign at Floating World Comics on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 from 6:00 till 8:00 pm! RSVP on Facebook!
Caleb Goellner is a blogger based in Portland, OR. He’s originally from Kansas City, where he first met Buster Moody, colorist of Bayou and Screamland: Death of the Party. The duo bonded with Portland illustrator Ryan Hill, artist and colorist of the Dark Horse Comics Avatar: The Last Airbender Free Comic Book Day 2013 issue, over a shared love of tokusatsu, manga, and LEGO. Task Force Rad Squad is the trio’s first team-up in an ongoing war against space monsters.
Earth’s legit-est teenage protectors have vanquished evil and are settling into sleep mode… until their new mentor accidentally unleashes a fresh batch of cosmic monsters, forcing them to engage evil once again as Task Force Rad Squad.
Task Force Rad Squad #1 is a 32-page, full-color calamity by writer Caleb Goellner, artist Buster Moody, and colorist Ryan Hill that introduces readers to three teens with radditude, their substance-addled “mentor” and the weary AI known as PhRANCIS. Powered by the specious cosmic tech of an extinct Space Wizard civilization, the team has inherited a universe of messes that they rightfully resent having to mop up. But who knows? Maybe their struggle to protect Earth from sentient birthday cakes and hot garbage will wind up teaching them the true meaning of friendship? Maybe??? Seriously, we have no idea!
