Jay Faerber and Sumeyye Kesgin Imagine Amelia Earhart's Whereabouts in the Fantasy 'Elsewhere'

Comics/TV writer Jay Faerber (COPPERHEAD, Zoo) teams up with rising star artist Sumeyye Kesgin for an all-new fantastical series, ELSEWHERE, coming this August from Image Comics.


What really happened to famed airwoman Amelia Earhart? As it turns out: a lot. 



Somehow transported to a strange new world filled with flying beasts and baffling alien civilizations, Amelia desperately struggles to return home. Along the way, she forges alliances and makes enemies as she goes from aviatrix to freedom fighter in a rebellion against a merciless warlord!


“ELSEWHERE is the kind of series I've wanted to tackle for a long time, with exotic characters, fantastic creatures, and huge scope,” said Faerber. “But I needed a relatable character to hang everything on. I found that character in Amelia Earhart—she's inspiring, courageous, and most of all, real. And I've found the perfect partner to help me navigate this thrilling adventure: artist Sumeyye Kesgin. She's incredible, and absolutely vital to bringing this world to life.”


“It's an incredible experience working with Jay Faerber!” said Kesgin. “He's one of the best writers I've ever known, and I was really fascinated when he first showed me the outline of the story. I am having fun while creating the entire ELSEWHERE universe because of my love for fantasy and aerial concepts, and I feel really honored, as a female artist, to draw Amelia Earhart.”


ELSEWHERE #1 Cover A by Sumeyye Kesgin (Diamond code: JUN170635) and Cover B by Andrew Robinson (Diamond code: JUN170636) arrives in comic book stores Wednesday, August 2nd. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, July 10th. 







Advance praise for ELSEWHERE:

“Distinctive and energetic art brings life to this skillfully written high adventure story.” —Mahmud A. Asrar (All-New, All-Different Avengers)

“I haven’t read anything as flat-out fun as ELSEWHERE in ages. The immensely clever writer Jay Faerber takes names you know and sticks them together in a place that’s hard to imagine. Luckily, artist Sumeyye Kesgin imagines the bejeezus out of it!” —Cully Hamner (Red)

“ELSEWHERE had me hooked from its opening pages! Faerber and Kesgin are weaving a beautiful spectacle within an intriguing and unique mystery. I can't wait to read what happens next! Put it in my pull list already!”
—Patrick Gleason (Superman)

“Rousing adventure and rollicking fun. Another rock-solid comic from Jay Faerber, who consistently—and apparently effortlessly—makes great comics I love.”
—John Layman (CHEW)

"ELSEWHERE is a blast! Fun, fantastic, and occasionally heartbreaking. Jay Faerber’s lively script is a surprise, given the context of loss and mystery, but he makes it work beautifully. Of course, Sumeyye Kesgin’s art has a lot to do with the success of that script. Her work, while charming and beautiful throughout, absolutely blossoms in the more fantastic scenes, and that makes the book sing!"
—John Arcudi (RUMBLE)

"What if Amelia Earhart didn't crash, but instead somehow ended up in a land of dragons and a rebellion and evil emperors? ELSEWHERE is high fantasy with a warm heart and the type of high concept that makes other writers bite themselves that they didn't think of it first." —Rob Williams (Suicide Squad)

REVIEW: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story. 
Cyber Data is the or…

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 …
