Matt Wagner Returns to 'The Shadow' with "The Death of Margo Lane"

PRESS RELEASE
Legendary creator Matt Wagner returns to both write and draw an all-new tale for the first and most famous of all pulp heroes, The Shadow! 

Following his critically-acclaimed work on The Shadow: Year One and Grendel vs. The Shadow, Wagner once again lends his masterful talents to unveil "what evil lurks in the hearts of men." In a storyline that is sure to rock The Shadow's relentless crusade against crime, Dynamite is proud to bring readers The Death of Margo Lane - a six-issue series masterfully written and drawn by Wagner and colored by his son, Brennan Wagner, a rapidly rising talent in today's industry. 


"I've been a huge fan of The Shadow since my early teens and I just had to come back to the character by both writing and drawing this exciting and critical storyline" says Matt Wagner. "The Death of Margo Lane is a series that will challenge The Shadow on many levels… and leave him changed in ways he had never expected."

For years, Margo Lane has served as The Shadow's faithful "friend and companion", the closest and most intimate of all his many agents. But when will that proximity to The Shadow's dark and violent world take its ultimate toll on her? And what effect will his lover's loss have on the driven and brooding Master of Darkness? This series presents a powerful and resonant tale in the sort of pulse-pounding pulp style that only Matt Wagner could deliver!


"Working with Matt remains a high water mark in my career and with each and every project we work on together, my respect and admiration for his skills as a storyteller grows beyond bounds I thought possible," says Senior Editor Joseph Rybandt. "Working in pure pulp mode, with the definitive pulp character, Matt is a force of nature."

"We've worked with Matt as a writer on quite a few great series at Dynamite, and he's graced series with covers," says Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. "This is the first time we have been fortunate enough to have Matt both write AND draw a series at Dynamite, making this one of the most important books that we will have published to date."


In addition to the beautifully drawn cover to the first issue, qualifying retailers will be eligible for a special classic crime noir black-and-white variant version. Details available in the April dated issue of Diamond's Previews catalog.

Look for the premiere issue of this five-issue series on June 1st at your local comic book retailer!

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:

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 …

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J.
