Joseph Keatige and Bret Blevins take STELLAR To A New Dimension This June

Writer Joseph Keatinge (GLORY, SHUTTER) and legendary artist Bret Blevins (New Mutants, Sleepwalker) team up for the spacefaring series STELLAR—created by Robert Kirkman and Marc Silvestri—this June from Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment.


Stellar was taken as a child and transformed into the ultimate weapon, one that would end an intergalactic war. She succeeded…at everything except finding peace. Now, she’s reduced to bounty hunting, scouring the worlds she’s broken in search of redemption.

But there are other weapons loose in the galaxy, and it seems they just can’t leave the war behind them.

“STELLAR is a capstone to everything I've written before, in a lot of ways,” said Keatinge. “It's a sci-fi book reflecting on sins’ past effect on the future, and overcoming them to go in a new direction. Robert bringing on Bret Blevins is an absolute dream come true, as his work has been a huge inspiration, ever since his work on Sleepwalker. That said, there's nothing like this in his entire oeuvre, and I'm hoping it's the first of many collaborations together.”

This June, STELLAR will transport you to another dimension—one filled with crashed spaceships, fast-talking aliens, and ageless wonders.

“STELLAR is a science fiction drama with lots of spectacular action, grit, and a great deal of heart—the perfect combination!” said Blevins. “It’s also an invigorating career turning point for me, because Skybound has afforded me the opportunity and the time to create the very best work I’ve ever done in comics. Robert Kirkman’s concept and Joseph Keatinge’s rich and subtle script have made for a joyous collaboration and inspired me to reach beyond what I thought I could do and surprise myself, and I hope, the readers. I’ve never worked harder on a comic book, and I’ve never been more excited for a project to reach the audience.”

STELLAR #1 (Diamond code: APR180484) hits comic shops Wednesday, June 13th. The final order cutoff deadline for comics retailers is Monday, May 21st.

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:

Eliza Dushku Stars in Sci-Fi Short 'The Gable 5'

Kevin Tancharoen, the filmmaker that created the popular webseries, Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has returned to Machinima with his latest short film entitled The Gable 5 starring one of Joss Whedon's favorite action heroines, Eliza Dushku. The ties to the Whedon-verse are well intact as Tancharoen's brother-in-law is Jed Whedon, who co-produces along with wife Maurissa, the super spy drama Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.LD. on ABC. Dushku once again shows off her killer moves in this dark and action-packed sci-fi short film.

VIDEO: Happy Father's Day, Walter White!

Just in time for Father's Day, Screen Junkies in association with the online men's magazine, Made Men, are celebrating TV dads and they got R.J. Mitte who played Walt Jr. to Bryan Cranston's Walter White, the school teacher turned meth kingpin on AMC's Breaking Bad, to reminisce about what made Big Walt a great dad. Maybe he wasn't so bad after all.




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 …

Mike Mignola and Adam Hughes Reunite for 'Hellboy & The B.P.R.D.: The Seven Wives Club' One-shot

This December, the Eisner Award-winning creative team of HELLBOY: KRAMPUSNACHT is reuniting for an all-new one-shot, HELLBOY &THE B.P.R.D.: THE SEVEN WIVES CLUB.


Written by legendary HELLBOY creator Mike Mignola and illustrated by acclaimed artist Adam Hughes, this ghostly yarn features Hellboy coming to the aid of a young girl whose ghost hunt in Savannah, GA goes terribly wrong. Things go from bad to worse, as they often do, when a visit to an abandoned medical school reveals sinister layers to a grisly long-ago murder.


“The Victorians used to read and tell ghost stories during the Christmas season,” said Mignola. “We might not be reading by candlelight these days, but I do like a good ghost story during the holiday season, especially when there are stolen cadavers, vengeful spirits, and art by Adam Hughes.”


“I’m dead thrilled to be collaborating with Mike again and flabbergasted as always that anyone wants to work with me twice,” said Adam Hughes. “This one’s so spooky, I’m onl…
