COMIC BOOK DAY: Notable New Releases 11/19

new comics 11/19 by Slidely Slideshow

This week's comic book offerings include some of the best horror stories in the business - Goners #2, Criminal Macabre: The Third Child #3, and Afterlife with Archie Magazine #2. Each with their own spin on suspense and gore. There's never been a greater time to be a fan of supernatural storytelling. 

Meredith and David Finch take over Wonder Woman this week in issue #36. After the incredible run of Brian Azzarello and Cliff Chiang to reboot the Amazon warrior for the New 52 the Finchs have large shoes to fill. The veteran creators should be up to the task. 

Harley Quinn #12 continues to dominate the sales chart for DC Comics while Ray Fawkes debuts Intersect #1, Michael Avon Oeming releases Sinergy #1 for Image and Dennis Hopeless unleashes Spider-Woman #1 for Marvel.

As far as trades go, Greg Rucka's Lazarus The First Collection covers the first 9 issues of the acclaimed series in a hardcover edition. Jeff Lemire reinvents the Teen Titans in the highly anticipated Earth One Teen Titans Volume One.

Happy reading!

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Fitness Women in Superhero Body Paint by J.M. Manion

J.M. Manion has long been a successful photographer covering the fitness and bodybuilding industry. He has photographed some of the strongest, well-defined physiques on the planet. He's also had a love of super-heroes and comic books. So much so that Manion began publishing his own comic book, Iron Siren Comics, featuring some of the fitness competitors he's covered as superheroes themselves. It's no wonder he sometimes incorporates superhero cosplay and body paint into photo shoots. Here are just some examples of his work:

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…
