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 His old problems have been replaced by bloody hands and a trail of dead bodies — and now, remembering where he slept the night before is more important than ever.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!
