PRE-ORDER: 'God Country' #1 by Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw Coming in January


Fan-favorite writer Donny Cates and Geoff Shaw (Buzzkill, The Paybacks) team up for an all-new series GOD COUNTRY, set to launch from Image Comics in January 2017.

In GOD COUNTRY readers meet Emmett Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia. Emmett isn't just a problem for his children—his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home—as well as the surrounding West Texas town—a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage. The enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He's now the only man who can face these otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State…

"This is a story Geoff and I have been wanting to tell for such a long time, and to be able to do it with Image is beyond a dream come true,” said Cates. “God Country is full of heart, action, giant swords, Kirby Gods, Texans, magic tornados, and family drama...so it's really just everything I love piled into one great, epic yarn. This January everyone is welcome to come on in, grab a beer, have a seat and get ready… we have a hell of a story to tell you."

Shaw added: “I love this book! Of course, I would say that, but I really do. I love that Donny and I get to work together again, and I love that we get to publish through Image. It's a story I've never heard before, both down to earth and out of this world. The whole team is on their A-Game and I cannot wait to share it with the world, Texas style!”

SOUTHERN BASTARDS meets American Gods in a high-stakes fantasy series that will kick off the new year with high-octane action and jaw-dropping worldbuilding. In GOD COUNTRY salvation is a double-edged sword.

GOD COUNTRY #1 Cover A by Shaw and Dave Stewart (Diamond Code NOV160544) and Cover B by Gerardo Zaffino (Diamond Code NOV160545) hits stores on Wednesday, January 11th. The final order cutoff for comics retailers is Monday, December 19th.

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 …

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:
