PREORDER: 'Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs' Slashes Its Way into Comic Shops This August!


Claw vs Talon! Fur vs Scales! Supernatural vs Prehistoric! Werewolves vs Dinosaurs brings fans a creature feature with more bite per page than your average horror comic! Introducing the first release from the American Mythology Dark series, the publisher brings fans a clash of monstrous proportions to satisfy even the most hardcore horror fan.  

The creation of comic book artist Chris Scalf (Star Wars) and writer Eric Dobson, Werewolves vs Dinosaurs is an all-out adrenaline-filled fang fest that finds the main character, Cade, in the middle of a supernatural smack down orchestrated by a group of mysterious men in black. Instead of catching a long needed break in the sleepy little town he stumbles into, Cade lands on a runaway train ride full of over-the-top carnage, mayhem, and mystery that rivals the wildest grindhouse films ever made.   


Under partnership with the series’ creator, American Mythology Productions (AM) will launch  Werewolves vs Dinosaurs as a one-shot, in your face, talon biting, 32-page comic book in the May 2016 edition of PREVIEWS from Diamond Comic Distributors, listed under “American Mythology Productions,” on page #279. It carries a $3.99 U.S. cover price.

The book takes the comic publisher in a new direction by adding horror to its expanding catalogue of science fiction, comedy, adventure, and all-ages offerings. The new Dark series will give readers exactly what the title implies, a heavier dose of tales that tingle the spine and provide the backdrop for nightmares with the stunning art provided by Scalf doing both the cover work and interior art.   

Werewolves vs. Dinosaurs is sort of a sequel to a previous story that came about as a joke. My son is a big rail fan and loves going on trips to distant towns to visit rail lines. I myself am a comic/sci-fi fan, I would always wonder out loud if there were in any comic shops in any of these towns… We kidded around about the need for my sci fi/monster interests to coincide with his train hobby in a comic book— something like “Werewolves in a train.” This led me to doing a mock pulp cover for said comic. Eric Dobson, a friend who is also a great writer, saw it, and wanted to write a story around it. We initially were going to publish that one first, but sometime after that I had the thought that we should do a sequel. I had a story idea I brought to Eric and asked if he would want to flesh that one out instead… The rest is history. We had a lot of fun going back and forth on this and developing these characters and storyline ideas. The sequel ended up being more of the origin story and here we are…” said Scalf about the new comic.


Writer and co-creator Eric Dobson said, "When Chris and I first started playing with the idea for Werewolves vs Dinosaurs, we both figured it'd be a fun, goofy idea, but as we waded deeper into the idea, the story and the characters, we both realized we had the chance to put out a really cool book - the kind of thing we both loved as kids. We're hoping we can continue the story, dig into the characters we've created, and of course unleash a bunch more monsters and mythical creatures onto the page."

“When Chris first approached us about doing this series, we just looked at each other and said what a cool concept for a comic. The title alone grabs you and makes you want to see more. When he showed us some of his preliminary concept art for the series, we knew it was a no-brainer that we just had to put this book out. We couldn’t think of a better way to help introduce readers to our new Dark series,” said Michael Bornstein, American Mythology’s publisher. “The book really is a thrill ride for readers from start to finish and delivers on its promise to keep you at the edge of your seat. When you can deliver such a potent combination of concept, art, and story, you can’t help but get excited about a project like this. We’re hoping fans will devour this book as fast as the carnivores that fill its pages as we kick off yet another new chapter to our expanding lineup. Sit back, strap in, and leave the lights on, as we unleash Werewolves vs Dinosaurs this summer!”

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. 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:

INTERVIEW: Spencer & Locke’s David Pepose and Jorge Santiago, Jr. Talk Sequel, Film Adaptation and More

Suspended by Internal Affairs, Detective Locke grapples with the demons of his past alongside his trusty partner, his childhood imaginary panther Spencer. But when Spencer and Locke face a scarred soldier named Roach Riley, will this unlikely pair finally meet their match?




When 'Spencer and Locke' first launched back in 2017, it was a curious novelty at first blush. The premise of "what if Calvin and Hobbes grew up in Sin City" was cute and ambitious but how could it possibly live up to the beloved comic strip with the hard edge of Frank Miller's classic? The result was a triumph that proved to be more thoughtful and impactful than expected. The combination of a hard-boiled detective story told through the lens of PTSD while paying homage to some revered properties proved to be masterful in both execution and style. David Pepose and Santiago, Jr., had found the heart and soul of the story in real emotion while being an entertaining crime drama.

With its success a…

Here's the Dickon Tarly You Didn't See on 'Games of Thrones'

Ever since Tom Hopper stepped in for Freddie Stroma on this season's Game of Thrones as Dickon Tarly, preferred son of Lord Randyll Tarly (James Faulkner), he's made quite the impression and not just for the character's funny phallic name.
*Possible spoilers ahead if you haven't seen 'Game of Thrones' Season 7, Episode 5, "Eastwatch"
We've barely gotten to know him only that's he the dutiful and loyal son to crusty old Randyll and he's got a name that makes Ser Bronn (Jerome Flynn) chuckle (and us too). The strapping neophyte on the battlefield seemed ready to break out on the show when this week his loyalty to his father led to some dire consequences. 
Conquered by Daenerys’s army and dragon, Dickon, Randyll and their fellow vanquished men stood before her. She gave them a simple choice join her or die. Too proud to bend the knee, Randyll chose to die instead of following Dany who he didn't consider his queen. So far so good. Then cli…
