COMING SOON: BRIGANDS: RUIN OF THIEVES #1 - 'Game of Thrones' meets 'Ocean’s Eleven'

The sequel to BRIGANDS, RUIN OF THIEVES is a grimdark Sword and Sorcery story with a heist movie plot as our heroes must survive cross and double cross and their own reputations to come out on top.


"The book will read and look unlike anything else on the shelves. I've established a certain style and sensibility with my work in comics so far, but Sumit's art  and Rosh's colours are international debuts that people will not want to miss. Fans of the genre will love the story and absolutely everyone will want to get on board to see Sumit’s work!

I want readers to remember not only the kind of fantasy/adventure stories that were around when the genre was at its peak, but also relate to the characters who are written with a hint of modernity. It’s an action-packed adventure full of cut-throats and dark bargains. At the end of you’ll be left surprisingly touched by the characters you’ve met along the way.

I grew up on these kinds of stories. Thieves and scoundrels and ne’er-do-wells coming together to overcome impossible odds and show that they’re human beings underneath. And when I read books today, often I find myself seeking out an old school grimdark fantasy book when I want a comforting read. BRIGANDS and RUIN OF THIEVES come from that childhood place spent in the pages of dusty tomes, fantasizing about magic swords and devilish heroes." - Ram V

Writer Rob Williams (SUICIDE SQUAD, UNFOLLOW) calls BRIGANDS, "Sword and sorcery with a refreshingly grounded eye from two of the most promising new creators on the comics scene. Ruin of Thieves carries you along with its confidence."

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

PREVIEW: 'Tet' #4 by Paul Allor and Paul Tucker

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 …
