Political Horror-Comedy 'Citizen Jack' Coming This November from Image


As America dives into the terrifying farce of election season, Image Comics is proud to announce CITIZEN JACK, a brand new horror-comedy for everyone who hates politics. Created by blockbuster writer Sam Humphries (Guardians of the Galaxy and X-Men: Black Vortex) and New York Times bestselling artist Tommy Patterson (Game of Thrones), CITIZEN JACK debuts on November 4th, 2015.

Every presidential candidate has a skeleton in the closet—but Jack worships the devil. CITIZEN JACK tells the story of Jack Northworthy, a scandal-plagued small town politician, who should in no way be president. But he has a secret weapon: Marlinspike, a malevolent demon of high ambitions. Together, they're running for president in an outrageous campaign that America will never forget.

Co-creator Humphries first made headlines with his creator-owned debut at Image Comics in 2011. The reprint of the self-released one-shot OUR LOVE IS REAL turned heads around the industry with an edgy premise and an unexpectedly sweet story about one man’s “best friend.” That one-shot launched a career that has him writing some of Marvel Entertainment's biggest stars, including international movie icon The Legendary Star-Lord.

Now, Humphries makes his triumphant return to Image. He and artist Patterson have enlisted an all-star team including editor Jeanine Shaefer, designer Dylan Todd, with colors by John Alderink, and letters by Rachel Deering.

”My fellow Americans, we’ve all had the experience of following politics and having one of two reactions: screaming in terror, or laughing to stop the screaming,” said Humphries. “In that sense, Citizen Jack is the Great American Comic Book.”

Patterson added: "My excitement for Citizen Jack corresponds with my fright of and amusement at our current system. When you peel back the layers of our modern day world you'll find some shadowy figures pulling strings. Once you see it you can't look away."

Cast your vote for CITIZEN JACK’S (Diamond code SEP150499) diabolical extra-sized debut this November, featuring covers by series artist Patterson, and a special variant cover by comics' bad boy supreme, Chip Zdarsky (Diamond code SEP150500), co-creator of the smash-hit SEX CRIMINALS and writer of Archie Comics' upcoming Jugheadseries. Final order cutoff deadline for retailers is Monday, October 12th.

'Aberrant Season 2' Promises Twisty '80's Inspired Action When the Political Thriller Returns

A new, delightfully twisted story arc of the much-lauded political action thriller is coming to you this February!



Rylend Grant has been busy. The screenwriter – whom has previously penned poppy action fare for folks like Ridley Scott, Justin Lin, John Woo, and F. Gary Gray – spent 2018 writing movies for the likes of J.J. Abrams and Hamilton star Daveed Diggs. He also somehow managed to find the time to put together a deliciously evil five-issue sequel to his critically acclaimed comic book, ABERRANT.

“I don’t sleep much,” says Grant, whom is also raising a gleefully rambunctious two-year-old.

To add fuel to his bone-tired fire, Collider recently announced that ABERRANT is being developed for television by 24 and Felicity executive producer Tony Krantz.

“Tony is one of the smartest people working in Hollywood today,” said Grant, who will write the pilot and produce the series alongside Krantz. “He has shown a uniquely genuine passion and enthusiasm for the book. I honestly couldn’t b…

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 …

PREVIEW: 'The Spirit: The Corpse-Makers' HC by Francesco Francavilla

A series of unexpected disappearances and deaths hit Central City. Initially, these cases seem purely unrelated; no apparent connection between the victims makes it easy for the police to just file them as runaways or natural deaths. But when someone close to Ebony White disappears, The Spirit is on the case!


The iconic masked crimefighter created by legendary comic book creator Will Eisner returns in an all-new tale by Francesco Francavilla... Eisner Award winner, master of crime noir, and worthy successor to The Spirit’s legacy!

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:
