Third Eye Comics has had their ups and downs the entire time I've been reading comic books. The biggest hurdle they've been able to conquer is the quality of their comics. There always seems to be a flaw or something that no one can figure out in the story, but the writer never lets it be known, never excuses it, and most of all, never lets it hold them back from completing another great comic book series. With so many great storylines and characters to draw from, I have always been confident that Third Eye Comics would bring a masterpiece of comic book storytelling each month. And they have.
The Challengers of Forever Issue #1 was absolutely amazing. Every issue since Issue #2 has been nothing short of spectacular. The plot, the art, the penciling, the coloring, everything about Third Eye Comics has been top notch. It's hard to describe the kind of greatness that goes into making a comic book graphic novel, but I can tell you this: You're not going to want to put this book down. It is a must-read for any lover of comic books and any fan of excellence in storytelling.
Now, I know what you're thinking. If there are so many great comic books out there, why would I want to go to the comic book store? Well, I don't want to be the only one who ever thinks of these things. Luckily, retailers like Third Eye Comics have been popping up everywhere. The internet has helped spread the word and allow more people to experience Third Eye Comics for themselves. Now, you can find great graphic novels just about anywhere you look.
One of the things I love about Third Eye Comics is the sheer variety of books they have available. When I go to the comic book store, I'm always limited to the selection that the store has in the back. Sometimes, I'm lucky and there is even a shelf or two dedicated to new releases. Other times, there's nothing. But I've discovered that Third Eye often has some of the most recent new releases, issues from the last year or so, and some older classics that I've had trouble finding.
For example, I recently came across the comic shop located in Urbana, IL called Urbana Comics. The owner, Jordan Czaia, has managed to compile a stellar line of new releases that feature DC comics, graphic novels, and even a few issues from Marvel. In addition to having a wide variety of comics to browse through, Urbana's comic shop offers a ton of books related to the Maryland area as well. I especially love the superhero section with books like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Batman: The Dark Knight. Aside from a ton of comic books, Urbana's comic shop also sells lots of movies, tv shows, and Japanese animation DVDs.
If you live in the Maryland area and are looking for a great place to buy comics, I highly recommend checking out Urbana comics. They offer a large selection of both new and used comic books, graphic novels, trade paperbacks and even some hardcovers. I've bought everything from recent releases of big name superhero teams, such as Uncanny X-Men and Amazing Spiderman, to back issue of long gone classic comics, such as Batman, Robin, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern.
For those parents looking for a way to get their kids into reading, Urbana's free comic book store has a ton of choices. They have a section dedicated to recent best sellers, both in store and online. This section also includes some of the newest titles, both in store and online, by some of the top creators in the industry today. You can find recent releases of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Incredibles, X-Men, and many other top selling titles. I love coming into Urbana's store, and seeing the racks filled with Batman, Superman, and dozens of other DC comic book titles.
Kids love free comic books, and with so many titles available, your child will likely go through her supply of them before they grow bored. When you shop at Third Eye Comics, you get a good selection, so that your child doesn't run out of them too soon. I also enjoy coming in here on a regular basis, since I know that most of the merchandise is new, and that means that I'm not having to pay any additional money to get these titles. All the stock comes directly from Diamond Comic Distributors, who hold the comic book rights to many of these titles. I enjoy buying Urbana's free comics supplies last, because I know that if I were in a bind, I can come home and read one of the many great new titles that are being released every month.
