PREVIEW: Webcomic LOOKING FOR GROUP Going to Print at Dynamite


Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce that Looking For Group, the hilarious fantasy-themed webcomic with a readership of millions, will be released as an ongoing comic book series, representing all strips from the very beginning.

Written by Ryan Sohmer and illustrated by Lar deSouza, Hawk, Ryan Dunlavey, and Ed Ryzowski, the upcoming Looking For Group series includes bonus stories from the Non-Playable Character and Tiny Dick Adventures spin-off series. The debut issue will be released in April 2015, featuring brand new cover editions by industry veteran Ty Templeton (Batman '66 Meets The Green Hornet) and Becky Dreisdadt.

Looking For Group follows the adventures of Cale'Anon the elf and Richard the undead warlock, as well as their companions, through Fantasy, Pop Culture, and Gaming tropes, set in a reality and time unlike our own. It's a place where the eating of small children is not necessarily frowned upon; where beings of extraordinary power can destroy entire villages with only "because I could" as an excuse; where magic and adventure are as commonplace as setting fire to, and then reanimating, a chipmunk into a skeletal minion (it happens more than you'd think); and an epic journey can begin by an accident of fate.


Ryan Sohmer, the writer and co-creator of Looking For Group, says, "We are really excited to present Looking For Group in a new format to a whole new audience in comic shops across North America, right from the start. Putting it all together, it's been great to go back and re-live our particular brand of hilarious immolation. Everyone at Dynamite has been great to work with, especially once they stopped screaming!"

"Bringing LFG to print in comic stores is really exciting for me," says Lar deSouza, the artist and co-creator. "Ever since I was a kid and rode my triceratops to the stone pharmacy to buy comic books for three bones and a rock apiece, I've dreamed of having my work on that stand too! The point is, I'm old, but loveable. And I'm really excited to bring LFG to comic stores. Did I say that already?" 

Since its launch on November 26, 2006, Looking For Group has garnered significant media and industry attention and won the 2008 Shuster Award for "Outstanding Canadian Web Comics Creators." The webcomic is read by millions online every week, along with its two spinoff comics Non-Playable Character and Tiny Dick Adventures, both of which launched to rave reviews in 2014.

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 …

Barbarella has been lied to. Worse, she’s been weaponized, and someone’s going to answer for that, for sure. (Well, assuming she survives the judgment of the Esseverine sun-giants, and an armada of a thousand ships...)
