Valiant presents the first lettered look inside BLOODSHOT SALVATION #3 – the next harrowing chapter of the BLOCKBUSTER ONGOING SERIES from New York Times best-selling writer Jeff Lemire (THE VALIANT, Black Hammer) and extraordinary artists Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT REBORN) and Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN)! On November 15th, “THE BOOK OF REVENGE” continues as Ray Garrison confronts a deranged zealot connected to his own family’s dark past…even as his wife and daughter find themselves hunt by the brutal powerhouse called Rampage!


In the footsteps of X-O MANOWAR and SECRET WEAPONS, the next sold-out series from Valiant's ICONS initiative brings down the hammer this fall with an action-packed and unrelenting new chapter for Valiant's machine-made soldier!

Now: When Magic’s estranged family of sadistic cultists come to take her back home, Ray Garrison is forced to succumb to the rage within and protect his family against those who would do them harm. But as Magic’s bizarre relatives reveal their true intentions – including those of the demented leader called “Daddy” – the man once known as Bloodshot will quickly discover that the path to revenge is one filled with dire and deadly consequences…


Soon: Years from today – in a world gone wrong where Bloodshot long ago went M.I.A. – can Magic and Jessie navigate the agents of OMEN that now pursue them across the heartland? And just when their darkest hour arrives, a familiar face is about to appear with a helping hand…and a message from beyond the grave!


On November 15th, master storytellers Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa, and Mico Suayan barrel forward with the next must-read chapter in Valiant’s punishing crusade of violence, villains, and vengeance as “THE BOOK OF REVENGE” continues, only in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #3 – featuring covers by Kenneth Rocafort (The Ultimates), Monika Palosz (X-O MANOWAR), Jay Anacleto (Marvels: Eye of the Camera), Greg Smallwood (Moon Knight), and comics legend Neal Adams (Batman)!


But first: Bloodshot’s most brutal mission yet charges forward in BLOODSHOT SALVATION #2! On October 25th, Jeff Lemire, Lewis LaRosa and Mico Suayan wrench Ray Garrison back into the destructive ways he left behind for a soul-shattering mission to save his wife and daughter from a gallery of terrifying new threats…

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 …

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:

'Black Terror' Back in New Series from Dynamite and Max Bemis

The Nemesis of Crime is back in a new limited series by writer Max Bemis (Moon Knight, Polarity) this October!


In this series, Bob Benton aka the Black Terror, is living in the 1970s and contending with his post-war mental health as well as the rapidly evolving social landscape around him. Say Anything band frontman and acclaimed comics writer Bemis is joined by artists Matt Gaudio (John Wick, Bettie Page) and Ruairí Coleman (Cloak & Dagger, Turok). Rounding out the team on colors and letters are Brittany Pezzillo (Bettie Page, Green Hornet) and Taylor Esposito.

Each issue of the series acts as both the next chapter and a standalone deep dive into the Black Terror's life and the chaotic 1970s setting. Fans can expect to see Black Terror's infamous plain-named sidekick Tim, cult leaders, mobsters, experimental drugs and more. Bemis has described the title as a bit of an Alan Moore take, but less depressing and with some 70s Batman DNA.


Writer Max Bemis said, "I loved w…
