PRE-ORDER: The Makers of 'Holy F*ck' Are Bringing 'Cougar and Cub' to Stores in January



Wealthy heiress Minerva Manx is the courageous Cougar, Megaville's premier crimefighter. Billy Bobtail is Cub, Cougar's loyal partner and a senior at the Sidekick Academy. A slow night on the prowl results in an exchange of passion between our heroes as one of Cougar's rogues watches from the shadows!

The one night stand between Cougar and Cub causes a downward spiral as the supervillains in Megaville leap to exploit the situation. Can Minerva and Billy mend their partnership and fend off the ferocious attacks of their enemies? Or will our champions let a night of indiscretion end their crimefighting careers?

But that's not all! Each issue sends you on a trip through time with our Flashback Backups, revealing secrets of the past through Cougar's exciting adventures from the golden age through the present.

Writer Nick Marino shares his excitement of working on this new title: "I'm so thrilled to share Cougar and Cub with readers. This is one twisted tail (hehe) that I never dreamed would see print like this. Daniel Arruda Massa's art is on a whole other level, channeling incredible influences from animation, underground comix, and classic superhero stories. Rosie Knight's backups are delicious bites of meta fiction, mixing the past with the present in unexpected and exciting ways. I can promise you one thing: you've never read a comic book like this before!"

Danger Zone publisher Jason Martin adds, “We’re excited and delighted to have creators Marino and Arruda Massa back at Action Lab, with another whip-smart and cleverly-skewed take on familiar tropes to follow up their last breakout effort, Holy F*ck (and Holy F*cked)!! As you’ll see, Cougar and Cub takes you to the less charted regions in the land of capes and cowls, and firmly into the Danger Zone!”

Plumb the depths of passion with our Love Is Gross variant, or take a trip to the golden age with our Flashback Backup variant cover!

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 …

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…

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:

Image/Top Cow announce an all-new, sinister ongoing science-fiction series—INFINITE DARK—by Ryan Cady and Andrea Mutti with colorist K. Michael Russell that will hit stores this October.
