Artist Darick Robertson signs at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, August 17, 2013 from 11:00am until 1:00pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

Third Eye Faithful, we are totally excited to announce one of our biggest signings of the Summer with the arrival of Darick Robertson to Third Eye Comics this August! Darick is the legendary modern comics artist behind instant classics like TRANSMETROPOLITAN, THE BOYS, and HAPPY! He’s done a ton of other excellent work as well, in fact, we’d be here all day if we ran through the list. Let me just say this: we’re honored to have the man as a guest at our store this Summer in anticipation of his brand new creator-owned series, BALLISTIC, from BLACK MASK STUDIOS, the publishers of the recent 12 REASONS TO DIE comic.

What’s Darick’s new project, BALLISTIC, all about? Imagine the cult movie genius of REPO MAN (the ’80s one!) distilled into a modern day heist story. A madcap sci-fi buddy adventure about a wanna-be bank robber and his best friend Gun, a drug-addicted, foul-mouthed, living gun, marks Darick Robertson’s return to the hard sci-fi worldbuilding of his classic TRANSMETROPOLITAN mixed with THE BOYS’ ultra-violence.

Darick will be signing at Third Eye Annapolis from 11AM-1PM on Saturday 8/17. We’ll have plenty of copies of all his works available, including his new series, BALLISTIC!

Press Release:

Folks, we are completely and totally honored to be hosting the day 1 release event for one of the most exciting new IDW series of the Summer: WILD BLUE YONDER. This post-apocalyptic steampunk thriller is a must-read, featuring the gorgeous artwork of THE CAPE artist ZACH HOWARD, and the writing of STUFF OF LEGEND’s MIKE RAICHT, it is a MUST.

When land and sea have become deadly and uninhabitable, the intrepid survivors of ecological disaster must take to the skies; to the WILD BLUE YONDER!

In a wildly imaginative take on the post-apocalyptic thriller, the creative team has created an eye-popping world of flying machines, massive makeshift fortresses and a desperate war among the dwindling population left to the scarce resources on the land.

As mankind has become accustomed to the reality of a prosperous life only existing in sky bound territory, a desperate war has broken out for control and survival on the ground and high above it.

A must-read, Third Eye Faithful, meet one of your favorite new titles of the Summer.

Press Release:

Third Eye Comics of Annapolis, MD, Cards, Comics & Collectibles of Reisterstown, MD, Laughing Ogre Comics of Lansdowne, VA, and Comics & Gaming of Gainesville, VA, have all come together to support a charity convention being held this Saturday in La Plata, MD.

The ANS Sci-Fi & Comic Con, which will be held on May 11, 2013, was founded in 2012 to benefit the Archbishop Neale School (ANS) in La Plata. The mission of the show is to create a fun and memorable event for fans and collectors of all ages that supports the educational and spiritual goals of ANS.

In its second year, the show will be expanding to feature more than 80 tables with more than 30 different vendors, as well as 13 artists from as far away as New York City, including Frank Cho, the creator, artist and writer of Liberty Meadows and the artist and writer of Marvel Comics’ new Savage Wolverine comic, who is being sponsored by Cards, Comics & Collectibles. In addition, Jerry & Penelope Gaylord and Brian Turner, artists on Boom! Studios’ Fanboys vs. Zombies, NFL Rush Zone, and Adventure Time, will be appearing courtesy of Third Eye Comics.

“We love seeing new conventions pop up, and the ANS Sci-Fi & Comic-Con in La Plata, MD is one of the most promising new shows we’re doing in 2013,” said Steve Anderson, owner of Third Eye Comics. “With superstar Frank Cho, and a retailer’s room of the best vendors the area has to offer, we know this is going to be the first of many awesome shows we do with ANS.”

“I knew of this show last year but was unable to go,” said Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics & Collectibles and show promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “Lots of my closest dealer friends had great things to say about the show and the cause. This year, we are coming full force with lots of product and we are all really excited.”

In addition to the vendors and artists, the show will also feature screenings of some rare and unusual films and a sneak-peak of the new documentary Plastic Galaxy – The Story of Star Wars Toys, with a special Q&A session with director Brian Stillman, as well as a game demo of the Conquest Tactics CCG by developer Andy Niggles. Additional programming includes: panels and presentations, silent auctions, door prizes, great food, and the 501st Legion!

“I am really looking forward to this event,” said Gary Dills, Owner of Laughing Ogre Comics. “Any time you can put great people together with a great cause, everyone wins. I am happy to be involved with such an endeavor!”

“We’re looking forward to a great show with an even better cause,” said Tim Chillemi of Comics & Gaming.

MD – Five Ghosts Signing

Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham sign at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, May 25, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

FIRST 25 IN LINE RECEIVE A VERY SPECIAL FREE GIFT LIMITED STRICTLY TO THIS EVENT!

Folks — we’re proud to announce this signing for what is sure to be one of the most popular new IMAGE COMICS titles to release this year. The artwork, the storytelling, the premise.. it’s all top notch; we got the same kind of goosebumps reading the previews of this one that we did when we first thumbed through books like PETER PANZERFAUST, MANHATTAN PROJECTS, REVIVAL and BEDLAM. This fantastic new series from rising stars FRANK J. BARBIERE & CHRIS MOONEYHAM kicks off a bold new era of PULP ADVENTURE COMICS!

After a tragic encounter with an artifact known as the DREAMSTONE, infamous treasure hunter FABIAN GRAY was possessed by five literary ghosts and has been granted access to their unique abilities.

Now, we join creators Frank J. Barbiere and Chris Mooneyham for the most exciting debut of 2013 as they introduce you to a unique world full of action, black magic, exotic locales, and literary allusion!

Folks: this book takes so many of our favorite things, and rolls them into one slick package. There’s the occult intrigue of series like HELLBOY and THE SANDMAN. There’s the pulpy treasure hunter aspect that’s not far removed from the UNCHARTED games. There’s the dynamic of a guy carrying around five ghosts with him; and being able to access their unique abilities.

Five Ghosts: the Haunting of Fabian Gray is a MUST-READ, Third Eye Faithful, and we cannot recommend it enough.

We’ll be having a very special release party signing with both Frank and Chris on Saturday May 25th, which is the week that the third issue of FIVE GHOSTS arrives.

Make sure to snag your copies of issues 1 & 2, when the series begins in March, so you can bring them by to get signed by Frank & Chris this May!

MD – Dream Thief Signing

dt

Jai Nitz and Greg Smallwood sign at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, May 18, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

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!

MD – Maximum Minimum Wage Signing

mw

Bob Fingerman signs at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

First 25 in line receive a FREE limited edition signed & numbered bookplate created JUST FOR THIS EVENT!

Folks, we are extra excited about this one, as Minimum Wage has been one of our personal favorites for a VERY long time. When IMAGE COMICS decided to collect the entire run of MINIMUM WAGE into one gorgeous, oversized 350+ page hardcover for only $34.99 — we knew we had to do something special to celebrate, and bringing series creator BOB FINGERMAN in for a huge Third Eye signing was exactly the thing to do!

For those of you who may not know, MINIMUM WAGE is one of the best indie comics of all time. Heck, when Third Eye Steve sold off his collection to fund the store way back when — his Minimum Wage comics were one of the few things he couldn’t part with! That should tell you something!

During its original run, MINIMUM WAGE racked up critical acclaim and a devoted following. Why? Because each page of Rob and Sylvia’s workaday saga boasted uncomfortable truths drenched in bleak humor, presaging squirmy shows like LOUIE and GIRLS.

Set in a New York so real you can smell it, this definitive edition collects the entire run, and also features a ton of great guest pin-ups by the likes of Peter Bagge, Dave Cooper, Joe Dator, Guy Davis, Glenn Fabry, Dean Haspiel, Gilbert Hernandez, Peter Kuper, Mike Mignola, and many more.

We can pretty much guarantee that if you dig slice-of-life humor, or autobiographical comics, you’ll love this book.

Imagine the dark everyday humor of Kevin Smith’s CLERKS, mix in a little bit of comic industry insider fun, and a whole lot of interesting characters, and you’ve got MINIMUM WAGE.

We’ll have plenty of copies of MINIMUM WAGE on hand for you to check out at the event!

MD – Savage Skullkickers Launch Party

svgsklkrJim Zub and Edwin Huang appear at Third Eye Comics on Saturday, March 30, 2013 from 11:00 am until 1:00 pm!

RSVP on Facebook!

Press Release:

We’re huge fans of SKULLKICKERS here at Third Eye, and are totally stoked for this great opportunity for many of you guys to discover this series for the first time with SAVAGE SKULLKICKERS #1.

We’re hosting a special launch party with SKULLKICKERS writer JIM ZUB and artist EDWIN HUANG to kick off this great jumping on point for new readers.

Haven’t read SKULLKICKERS? This series is an incredible piece of work; a must for both comics fans and gamers, as it blends the kind of bloody humor you’d see in ARMY OF DARKNESS or EVIL DEAD with the fantasy genre settings of A GAME OF THRONES, THE HOBBIT or WORLD OF WARCRAFT.

Ever wanted a Dungeons & Dragons-style comic that kicked ass on all fronts? Story, art, and more? SKULLKICKERS is that book.

Picture the best of buddie comedies like THE HANGOVER and cross it with the world of DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS, and that sums up SKULLKICKERS perfectly.

Wanna try the earlier SKULLKICKERS material before our signing? We’ve got the trade paperbacks in stock now, and you can give it a shot with volume 1 for only $9.99!

In addition to this exciting opportunity to meet the creators of one of our favorite gaming-inspired comics, we’re also hosting the first ever INTERNATIONAL TABLETOP DAY!

As part of the Geek & Sundry video blog TABLETOP w/ WIL WHEATON, FELICIA DAY and more, we’ll be doing a very cool event with our guests JIM ZUB & EDWIN HUANG.

You can look forward to the following activities:

FREE TableTop related items!
A demo of MUNCHKIN SKULLKICKERS with the Skullkickers creators!
Special deals on ALL gaming-related items.
Being featured on the event which will be LIVESTREAMED to the Geek & Sundry webchannel!
