PRE-ORDER: 'Devolution Vol. 1' TPB by Rick Remender and Jonathan Wayshak


In January of 2016, Dynamite Entertainment introduced Devolution, an original series from Rick Remender, the acclaimed writer of Black Science, Low, and Deadly Class, pairing him with the dynamic art stylings of Jonathan Wayshak. Now, the brutal miniseries that captured the fascinated attention of fans and critics alike is collected with plenty of time to top every year-end list!

In Devolution, every living creature on Earth has been devolved, the evolutionary clock turned back, reverting all life to odd mutations and prehistoric incarnations. The cities of man are little more than bloody territories ruthlessly dominated by tribal Neanderthals ruling from the backs of mammoths, packs of saber-toothed tigers, and giant man-eating insects. Raja, one of the few remaining "Still Sapien" humans, heads to San Francisco to find the antidote for the world-changing DVO-8 viral agent. But to cross the wasteland, she'll have to convince the last pocket of humanity to join her quest... and survive the Nazi hillbillies that rule them through fear!

"To see something I wrote years ago given so much incredible love from Jon Wayshak, colorist Jordan Boyd, and letterer Rus Wooton is a strange treat," says writer Rick Remender. "I rejoice in the rendering. It's worth the price of admission to see what these three have done."

"Working with Rick was a great experience. I'm happy that we finally were able to get together and get something like Devolution going," says series artist Jonathan Wayshak. "It was a ton of fun and I got to draw what I wanted. I couldn't ask for more!"

"Rick and Jon have crafted a gnarly, mean-spirited gem whose central questions about human nature might hit closer to home than we'd all like, and I'm psyched beyond belief that I got to help bring their grotesque vision to life," says Jordan Boyd, colorist.

"When Rick and I first discussed this series, the concept blew me away," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "It was both exciting and ambitious, the kind of idea only a writer of Rick's caliber could really pull off. When the art started coming in, and we saw what Jonathan Wayshak and the rest of the team were bringing to the table, we truly had hit a high watermark in storytelling."

Devolution will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' June 2016 Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in August. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Devolution with their local comic book retailers. This collection will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

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 …

An Artist Will Get His Revenge in The Post-WWII Original Graphic Novel SIMON SAYS

Image Comics announces an all-new, original graphic novel Simon Says by Andre R. Frattino and Jesse Lee which will paint a post-World War II Europe in a scarlet shade of revenge this September.


Simon Says is a drama-filled, crime noir story that follows a former artist to the Führer who hunts down and seeks justice upon the Nazis he witnessed murder his friends and loved ones during the war. It is an original graphic novel inspired by true events and by a real-world Holocaust survivor, Simon Wiesenthal, an artist who lost his family and took justice into his own hands.
"Simon Says is about an innocent and gentleman, an artist, whose family and life are destroyed by a real-world event. Not something sci-fi or fanciful, but something that has happened and could happen again. In that way, it's the story of any of us, and how we would respond if who we were and what we had were lost,” said Frattino. "The real-life, famed Nazi hunter, Simon Wiesenthal, was quoted as once sayin…

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.
