ADVANCE PREVIEW: Eight Issue 'Super League' by Peter Tomasi Crosses Four DC Books

Official Announcement

Peter J. Tomasi's "Super League" is almost here!

Last month we revealed that Tomasi would pen eight issues of "Super League," spanning SUPERMAN, BATMAN/SUPERMAN, SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN and ACTION COMICS over April and May of 2016. We showed some incredible cover artwork by Yanick Paquette, John Romita, Jr. and Klaus Janson, and Karl Kerschl, but we didn't reveal how huge this story would be.

It's going to be epic!

Did anyone notice that Mikel Janin is on art for SUPERMAN #51? With the upcoming solicitation of SUPERMAN #52 we thought it was time to give an early look at his interior pages for SUPERMAN #51 so you can see for yourself just how awesome this experience is going to be.

No context needed, just please enjoy the preview! And please let @mikeljanin and @DCComics know what you think! (if you go check out Mikel's twitter feed, it's obvious that he's beyond excited!)

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: 'Barbarella' #9 by Mike Carey and Kenan Yarar

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...)
